I’m far from a hipster. I’m in my mid-40s. I buy clothes from Nordstrom Rack and Loft. I ride my bike to stay in shape, not to get to work....
Full disclosure – this is my effort at playing catch up. The year that 2017 follows (I dare not say its name) proved challenging for me, personally and otherwise. Still,...
March was the last hope for El Niño hitting Long Beach, with several of us Ladies poised (in fancy rain boots) to respond with our City partners to the massive...
