Film Finds Aaron Low
Being a person that loves to document everything with a disposable camera, finding a place to get the film developed can be tricky. Thankfully, there is Nelson Photo Supplies in Point Loma. They have a quick turnover, and if you ask, they will send the digital files to your email, so you don’t have to make two trips!
Let’s Ride Aaron Low
I spend a lot of time at indoor cycling studio Edge Cycle where I’m an instructor. As you enter our gorgeous downtown San Diego location, you are greeted with the Insta-worthy wall that reads “F*@k Basic.” Each time you clip in, you enter a new transformative experience of self-love and self-discovery. Plus, you break a sweat, burn calories and get a major adrenaline rush from the loud music! 10/10—would recommend!
Major Heart Eyes
I like to describe Pigment as a “mood board come to life.” The shop has three locations, and each one is sectioned off by colors and aesthetics. They carry everything from stationery, wellness and lifestyle items to endless amounts of plants, succulents and pots. I bought my first-ever pothos plant here and—believe it or not—she is still alive and thriving!
Strike a Pose
When you’re looking for a place to take photos in San Diego, Balboa Park is the spot! From the gorgeous architecture and pavilions to the lush greenery inside and around the botanical gardens, there are ideal photo ops everywhere.
Fresh as It Gets
It’s Raw Poke Shop is one of San Diego’s best hidden gems. I like to call it a “super-exclusive” poke shop. The authentic Hawaiian flavors and fresh fish just melt in your mouth. This hidden gem is also within walking distance to the beach. Grab the combo plate and enjoy it on the sand! But take note: the shop is only open Tuesday-Sunday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. And be sure to get there early to avoid lines and get first pick!
