Summer Skin: Protect Thyself

As women of the 2010s, we are now well aware of the perils of overexposure to the sun: aging, sunspots, other long-term damage. If you're a teen from the 90s, like myself, you may have spent summers basking in baby oil to maximize them tan-lines. No más!

Truckee: An Ever-Evolving Mountain Town

I spent my childhood between San Francisco during the school months and Truckee, CA, during the winter and summer months we were out of school. My folks had built cabin in the 70s before the shmancy Tahoe Donner community was established. Over the past 15 years, Truckee has become a total destination. We graduated from remote mountain town, to resort mountain town with an exclusive second-home community, to, now, destination touting both a Ritz and owner-exclusive community in Martis Camp.
