Wanderlust Festival

Just registered for Wanderlust Los Angeles.  This year the yoga & music festival is hosting free day festivals in several cities.  See if Wanderlust is coming to your city (info HERE)!

Proof Lab is one of my favorite Bay Area spots, a gem of a surf shop tucked away in Mill Valley.  The founders have made it their mission to turn this shop into a community hub, offering classes & a place to hang.

The film is a part of a new series, HUCK Indies, that celebrates those people doing things for themselves.

Music Monday - Cathedrals

It makes me so happy to find a new band or song I can’t stop listening to & it makes me even happier when it’s a local San Francisco artist!  Check-out Cathedrals.

 

Treasure Island Music Festival

Looking forward to TIMF this weekend!  I have been to every TIMF & it’s one of my favorite, cozy little festivals that packs a big party & a great view!  Something about being on an island brings out the magic.  I thoroughly enjoy this festival w/o feeling overwhelmed.  All my friends are there, so it feels local & FUN.  And I love layering up for the chilly weather.  Especially excited for the Japandroids, Haim, Lord Huron & Palma Violets this year!

Joy Bianchi’s Helpers House of Couture

OMG, heaven!  Joy Bianchi + vintage + a good cause.  I absolutely love local darling Joy Bianchi & her Helpers House of Couture highlights both her stunning fashion sense & her big heart.  Shop this amazing collection & help support a wonderful cause (more info HERE).

Arcade Fire tagged the sidewalk in front of Blue Bottle Coffee in San Francisco’s hip Hayes Valley neighborhood ahead of the release of their single ‘Reflektor’ due to drop today, September 9.  
According to The Guardian, Arcade Fire has commissioned street artists to chalk the logos everywhere from NYC to Rome’s Coliseum. An Instagram account has even popped up to document the logos as they are found around the world.

Music Monday: Outside Lands Highlights

My top moments from #OSL:

The icing on the OSL cake was the city’s best offerings of gourmet food, wine, dessert, & beer.

Wild Belle kicked off Friday afternoon

Yeah Yeah Yeahs on Saturday.  Karen O kills it everytime; she is one of my all-time favorite performers.  Can’t wait to see her again in a couple weeks at FYF!

Phoenix.  They played a packed crowd despite the competition from NIN who played at the same time across the park.

Camper Van Beethoven ‘Northern California Girls.’ I also loved Willie Nelson & Hall & Oates.  H&O packed the main stage during the day on Sunday.

WILLIE!  OMG.

Foals set got pretty deep!

Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend

My favorite song, ‘Ya Hey.’ Vampire Weekend was a straight up party—one of my favorite sets of the weekend.  I’ve seen the Foals & Vampire Weekend & Coachella & wasn’t into it, but their OSL sets rocked!

RHCP

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Flea!

And there are just no words for how special Sir Paul was, let alone the pyrotechnics & fireworks.  Lifetime! The most incredible sing along with 100k people singing ‘Hey Jude.’  No words!

Outside Lands Starts Tomorrow!

I’m looking forward to one of my favorite (and foggiest) music festivals! I have always loved #OSL, because it’s in my hometown & #1 favorite city & because I have been attending since its inception. It’s been fun to watch it grow. I love hanging out with friends & listening to music in the magical woods & fields of Golden Gate Park! While other festivals are so HOT, getting bundled up & cozy for the chilled out weather reminds me fall (my favorite season) is just around the corner!

Hall & Oates. Definitely on my Outside Lands list this weekend.#OSL

Love this local San Francisco band.  They are a great live show.

I love this local project! This Kickstarter campaign out of San Francisco seeks to create the perfect yoga pant—in soft, fun prints! It’s harder than it sounds. The more yoga I practice, the more frustrated I become searching for yoga gear. Most days find me on my mat, so the right gear is important. I agree with the filmmaker that yoga really is an expression of my truest self & I just can’t bring myself to fit into the cookie cutter sea of Lululemon I find myself surrounded by (let alone the $90+ price tag). My perfect yoga pant has to be in the $50 or below range, mid-calf to full-length (so I don’t slip during inversions & arm balances), low, wide waistband, FUN, sweat-camoflaging (to hide the ever-flattering crack sweat that is inevitable during heated flow), and most importantly pass the see-through bend test when I’m spread into prasarita! It’s really hard to find all of these qualities in one pant & I can’t wait for my Inyos to arrive! Plus I love supporting local projects. Thanks for turning me onto these, Jennifer Jarrett! Support their campaign & reserve your pair today HERE!
