Cats or Dogs

cat

I think of myself as a dog person – one of my best friends is Norm the Dog. But in the name of fashion, I had to pick a cat over him. I was loving the Macbeth t-shirts at the flag ship store in Encinitas. It was so hard to decide, but I had budget constraints, so choose I did. Look how cute that cat in the general uniform is – the dog was a pug (I think) adorable too check them all out online or at the store. My tip in general for T’s stay away from grey – they show sweat the worst.

The t-shirt above is white – it’s totally ok to have gray pictures – white & black shirts work best for hiding the sweat & always have a spare t or 2.

Skating 4 Fun, Myself & Change

Skating doesn’t come naturally to most people – it sure didn’t for me. And yes I quit a million times – especially when I thought people were laughing at me. Next week I’m going to skate in Exposure – probably the largest Women’s Skating charity event in the world – I’m not doing it because I’ve become a great skater. I’m doing it because if I’m serious about seeing more girls skate – I have to be the change I want to see. I’m hoping girls see me and give it a try. If just one girl starts or sticks with skating – well that last place I get will be an even bigger VICTORY!

Skating My Best

 

Favoritest Jeans

I’m always on the hunt for products to fall in love with. Once I do I’m a loyalist. Articles of Society have earned my love. I skate in them and I’ve seen people do yoga in them – they are that versatile. Most importantly they look fabulous in and out of the skate park – win/win. Plus they are available at stores like Nordstrom and still affordable – beyond revolutionary these jeans are MUST HAVES!

Fashionable Safety Gear

TBH there is nothing fashionable about pads & helmets.  Helmet hair is never a good look.  But if you're skating for fun wear them simply cause they work and always have a stylish hat on standby & a bag big enough to hide the safety gear in.  Really if you're not skating take it off immediately.
