As an island babe, I love all things “island”, although I wasn’t always a fan of this newly packaged coconut water obsession.
Coconut water is one of those things that hits close to home. In the summertime – I would watch my father, shirtless with a “cut lass” (machete) in hand, hold a green coconut in his hand and slowly chop away at it as he shifted it’s position with every cut. He’d finish with one last chop off the top, leaving an opening where I could sip from. Both hands clutched around this coconut, I’d sip from the top as shreds of shell and debris found its way in the beginning gulps. Later, he would split the coconut in half and hand me a shard of the shell to scoop out the jelly.
Having that experience in my memory made it hard for me to accept the readiness of coconut water. I guess it’s just these strange days of instant gratification and no experience.
Long story short, VITA COCO sent me 3 glorious boxes of coconut water and I fell in love. I also realized that another reason for why I had a hard time getting into coconut water was because you usually have to buy it cold and whenever I drank coconut water as a kid it wasn’t very cold. When the boxes were delivered to me, I immediately opened and sipped the unrefrigerated container and it was delicious…exactly how I remembered!
Thanks to VITA COCO for now enabling my new addiction.

I’m SO stoked on these TEAM ISSUED VINTAGE KNICKS SHORTS from the early 80′s! Personally I think current issue basketball shorts are more like baggy capri pants and I prefer this poom-poom cut more…right ladies?!
Whenever the homie JOSH MADDEN speaks, everyone should listen. I know I do, because he just knows “whats up” before the masses do.
A couple weeks ago he put me on to NOUS SOMMES a duo of two cute frenchies who make jewelry, specifically chains with iconic busts of pop culture influences.
Upon a trip to France, Josh was able to meet the duo. Apparently they were very sweet and gave him many chains to take home with him and in pure Josh fashion he shared the wealth. I was given a gorgeous GRACE JONES piece that seems just to remarkable to wear…but, I will!!!
