Girl Talk: Underwear I Wear

Backstory People are generally awkward when it comes to underwear. You can get someone to post 50 pictures of possible bikini purchases or Instagram their half-naked vacation chronicles, but I have found after years of exploring and enquiring, people give you a strange look if you ask them about what kind of underwear they wear.

Boho Mama & the Soulful Circus: A Day in the Life and Style of TGFRL

80 Degrees is not my jam. Heat in general isn’t and anything more than 75 and sunny in unnecessary for me.

TGFRL Spring “Intermission” at La Costa Resort in Carslbad, California – Photo Essay

There is never enough vacation, but the benefits of having a life “intermission” are extraordinary. I always feel exuberant and uplifted when I transport to a different place, city, beach or mountain. It’s like the benefit of 15 minutes of sunlight (despite my anti-sun issues I’ve been deep breathing for a bit in the gentle spring sun these days) but it lasts longer.
