My feet are so happy to see the newest blast from the past.  Birkenstocks are back baby!  Your feet can rest easy during the warmer months knowing that they won’t get hot and blistered!

Comfort is in and why should it be?!  The flips are such a flop.  Get up to date with the out of date this summer.

In case you didn’t know (because I didn’t), there’s a wide variety of Birkenstocks to choose from (Birkenstock Milano featured above).  So many styles and colors.  You’re sure to find one to fit your style.

Which Birkenstocks are your favorite?

Your dogs will thank you. Trust me.

City Gardens, Apartment Therapy

Just because you live in an apartment doesn’t mean that you can’t have a garden.  Put your railing/balcony to use and create a calming, serene outdoor area.

You can plant flowers to herbs in the Railing/Balcony Planter by Greenbo.

Add some indoor plants to your railing inside and freshen up that stuffy city air!

Simply slot your planter onto the railing.  No nails, no tools.  Relax and enjoy!  Designed in Israel and made in Europe, the Greenbo is a city dweller’s ticket to green.

Choose from a variety of colors (red, gray, white).

Bringin’ Sexy Back With A Fanny Pack

I don’t care what anyone has to say.  I’m fairly confident that I will be responsible for bringing the fanny pack back in style. Yes, you did read that right, I said FANNY PACK.

Seriously though, lets think.  It’s almost summer.  From farmers markets to music festivals, we’re all on the go but we need something to hold all of our goodies in.

Yes I know when you’re reading this that you most likely think that I’m off my rocker and I’ve lost it.  Why bring back such a fashion no-no like the fanny pack?  It’s almost as scandalous as bringing back the mullet (For the record:  A cause in which I will NEVER support).

We can totally spice up the fanny pack though and make it a fashion statement with a few useful tips:

  • Wear it on your hip.  Don’t be a dweeb and buckle that baby on your front or back.  To the side is much cooler.
  • Tight is not right.  Keep it loose and easy.  No pun intended.
  • Think “hipster“.
  • Leather is awesome!
  • Don’t be self conscious…OWN IT!  If you look like you know what you’re doing, people will believe you!
  • Buy vintage…believe it or not, people are just looking to unload these things.  Especially do this if you’re looking for a leather fanny.  Vintage scuffed up leather is totally cool and you’ll be able to find some pretty old school fannies for a fraction of the price that you’d find a new leather fanny for.  Seriously…Spring is here and there are garage sales everywhere.  Go rummage and I’m sure you’ll find something great.

I’ve scoured the internet looking for my favorite fannies and you’d be amazed at how many really cool fanny packs you can find!

Keys? Check. Cell phone? Check. Moolah? Check. Doggie poo bags? Check. I could go on all night…but I won’t.

You go girl.


How do you feel about fanny packs?  Love em or leave em?  Let me know!
