MondayI make sure to set the tone for my week and honor myself with a good heart-pumping workout. I’ve been moving my body with San Diego Core Fitness for three years and have yet to find a better form of fitness!


Tuesday: Holsem’s Superfood Salad is my jam. All the best proteins, healthy fats and organic greens to keep my energy up and hunger at bay. I’m a creature of habit, so let’s just say my noon Holsem visits have become quite routine.

WednesdayThe hottest trends in all-natural skincare and beauty? We’ve got that covered at Shop Good. But for new trends and classic pieces in apparel and home decor, I get my fix at the adorable North Park boutique, Maven.

ThursdayIt’s such a treat to pop in for a weeknight visit to the Ocean Beach neighborhood gem, Little Lion Cafe. The dining experience resembles a gourmet, home-cooked meal. Get there on the early side to snag a table on the patio during magic hour!

FridayOur weekly email has gone out, providing our audience with exciting event announcements and clean beauty or wellness tips of the week. And, our shop blooms are ready to be picked up at Native Poppy! Their floral designs give our shop punchy pops of color.

SaturdayIf I’m not at Tribute Pizza on Friday, then I’m probably there on Saturday. My classic order is the Margherita pizza—cadillac style!—a caesar salad and roasted green beans

SundayI love heading up to Domaine Artefact Winery in Highland Valley for some sunshine and rosé. We’ll pack up our dog, Franklin, a couple of piled-high Whole Foods salads and hit the vineyard!
