Even as a native Angeleno, Los Angeles continually surprises me. For a city that gets a bad reputation for being superficial, you'd be surprised to find that L.A. has a lot of depth hidden beneath the surface. There is no better example of this than the annual Mercado Sagrado, a two-day event (Nov. 4th + 5th) quietly tucked away in hills of Malibu Canyon that offers an array of workshops, lectures, and activities intended to inspire grounding, creativity, self work, and community. Workshops include everything from learning how to grow your own food, read tarot cards, tie dye with indigo, and activities like sound baths, breath work and meditation, and a kava ceremony. With speakers like Shiva Rose, Josh Siegel, and Olympia Auset, you can learn about love and numerology, biohacking, holistic living, clean beauty, and the intersection of spirituality and social justice. With so much going on, you hardly have time to explore all of the many unique and like-minded vendors in their marketplace.

Sedona is one of my favorite places on earth. My family goes twice a year and I'm lucky if I can make it with them once every three years. As a family, we've been going to Sedona for as long as I can remember. When I was little I used to wade through Oak Creek and watch, mesmerized by the life underwater, studying carefully the fish, tadpoles, and algae existing together in harmony, in between hopping on big red boulders placed carefully on the creek like little islands. I remember there was nothing as lovely as drying off in the sun on top of one of these warm, sun-soaked red rocks after coming up from the water.
I'm older now, yet my love for Sedona still remains. It's one of those places where time seems to stand still. In Sedona, everything is easy and life is peaceful, not to mention there's no escaping from the awe-inspiring beauty of its land, which, if you choose to remove your focus from even one second, makes itself known in other ways. The town itself is about as touristy as it gets, but with everything from cactus shot glasses to red rock jeep tours, to aura photos and crystal healing, it's well worth exploring for an afternoon.

"Every minute, a forested area the size of five football fields is cleared on the island to make way for paper, rubber and palm oil plantations."
Rainforests are perhaps the most important natural resource on Earth. They safely store billions of tons of carbon annually, helping to keep the earth’s atmosphere in balance and warding off climate change-- an estimated 30% of our carbon emissions currently come from the burning of our rainforests. As if that wasn't enough, the rainforest is our single most important, untapped resource for scientific and medical discoveries and home to thousands of unique animals that depend on it for survival.

Music festival season is officially here! While Coachella came to an end last weekend, there are still a number of worthwhile festivals to attend this summer! Here are a few we've got on our radar.

We've been following fashion blogger and model Paulien Riemis for some time now, and she still remains one of our favorite fashion "It Girls." Her style (which she describes as "tomboy elegant with a playful French/Scandi touch") resonates clearly with what we envision as our own. Get to know Paulien by reading our recent interview with her. You will love her as much as we do!

Today, we wanted to introduce you to one of our new favorite fashion bloggers, Bethany Struble of Snake's Nest.

Believe it or not, Coachella is less than a month away. Here, we've put together a list of 10 of our favorite, must-see artists playing at the festival this year. One of our favorite things about music festivals is their ability to introduce you to new bands and artists. So regardless of whether you plan to go or not, perhaps some of these guys are worth checking out on your own.

With spring just around the corner, music festival season is officially here! While the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival came to an end this week, the Coachella music festival is fast approaching. In equal parts known for the street style as much as it's music, Coachella, which takes place in Indio, California, is the place to be for both music and fashion lovers alike...although getting tickets, is not exactly easy. In fact, it's rumored that tickets sold out just within the first 3 hours of being on sale.

Here in L.A., it can be a bit tricky to know how to dress for the weather outside. One minute it's warm, the next it's cold. One minute it's sunny, the next it's overcast. It can be a beautiful, warm and sunny day, yet once the sun goes down--it can be just as chilly and unforgiving as it is on east coast (just kidding, we love the east coast).
So this is why I was particularly excited when I found this website, www.wevther.com. Not only does it tell you the weather outside, but it also gives you some ideas on how to dress for it. Best of all, if you see something you like and don't yet have in your closet, the image links to an online store where you can purchase it. Cool, huh?

People always ask us, "how do you travel with just a belt bag?" Well, we don't! The truth is, when we travel we take with us a belt bag and a large tote. Yes, we said it--a large tote. There is nothing like having a belt bag while traveling--its the perfect place to stash the items you need to have readily on hand like boarding passes, drivers licenses, credits cards and phones, yet, chances are you'll probably also want to take a book, water bottle, headphones, etc, or a variety of other things to keep you entertained while you travel and all of these larger items (which you won't need until you board) can be stashed in a tote.

The HfS White Gesso Belt Bag is my absolute favorite bag to bring to music festivals like Coachella. When I'm at Coachella, I want to make sure I have my sunscreen, sunglasses, water, and perhaps a granola bar readily accessible at all times. Not only large enough to stash all my stuff, the Gesso belt bag weightlessly hangs on your hips, freeing up your hands for more important things--like dancing.

We absolutely adore the online blog post, "Top 10 Reasons Why All City Girls Need a Fanny Pack." This blogger's intelligent wit and charm, combined with her creative way with words reveal a refreshingly original point of view regarding the belt bag and the subsequent feeling of liberation that comes with adopting this "hands-free" lifestyle.

Is the inside of your bag a messy sea of receipts and gum wrappers? Still lugging around that pair of shoes you were supposed to return last month? Not sure how to transition from wearing a big bag to a belt bag?
No need to worry. Here's a look at the most popular items we, at the HfS office, carry with us in our belt bags. Use this as a how-to guide for scaling down the number of items you carry with you everyday to include just the few you really need.
1. Hipsters for Sisters Gesso Belt Bag Wallet: Of course, the first thing you'll want to have with you is your matching HfS wallet that comes with the belt bag. Designed to fit everything you need from credit cards and cash to business cards, the HfS wallet is the perfect size to accommodate all of your monetary needs.
2. Set of keys.
3. Karen Walker Oversized Sunglasses: Wherever you go, it is always wise to bring along with you a great pair of shades, especially during these hot Summer months. These edgy sunglasses by Karen Walker fit perfectly with the style of our HfS Gesso belt bag. While you're on the go, these large framed glasses will have you looking fabulous in no time. No makeup necessary.
4. Donkey-Products Ball Ben: A pen is always a handy item to have on hand.
5. Listerine PocketMist Cool Mint: Do not underestimate the importance of having fresh breath.
6. iPhone: This is a great tool to have with you when you're out and about. iPhone applications such as "Maps," "Around Me," and "Beat the Traffic" not only help guide you to where you're going, but also show you the fastest route, how to avoid traffic, and allow you to search for virtually any type of store or business nearby.
With just the essentials on hand, you'll be rearing and ready to go--anywhere, anytime, any place. Are we missing anything? Tell us, what is your most necessary item to have on hand?
