Amethyst is the stone I have been majorly drawn to as of late, probably because it's such a calming and healing crystal. Amethyst is like the crystal world's version of prozac. Wearing it on my skin calms me immediately. This is the crystal i use to bring down my insane levels of stress and anxiety at work and since I have been moving my home and studio to Venice Beach, California. Watch the video for my explanation and take on Amethyst.

More About Amethyst from Energy Muse:
Wearing Amethyst jewelry against your skin can act as a natural stress reliever. Amethyst attracts positive energy and rids your body of any negative energy, including feelings of stress, anxiety, fear and more. It encourages inner strength, spiritual growth and protection while bringing clarity of the mind as well. Wearing an amethyst bracelet, and having amethyst in your home environment, helps you to become more in tune with your feelings and heightens your intuition, which helps you to get to know yourself on a deeper level. Our amethyst bracelets stimulate and balance the brow and crown Chakras, making them a wonderful tool for meditation and calming your thoughts.
Amethyst stone jewelry is extremely beneficial to wear if you often get migraines or headaches, as amethyst is often used for pain and headache relief. You can also rub a tumbled piece of amethyst on your forehead in a counter clockwise circle to help alleviate a headache—try dipping the piece in running water first to make this easier.
In addition to our amethyst jewelry, Energy Muse offers many Amethyst crystals that are beneficial for your home. Placing an amethyst geode or crystal in your home rids it of all evil or negative influences, creating a calming and peaceful home environment. Placing a piece of Amethyst in the bedroom guards against nightmares and helps to battle insomnia. It is especially useful for children who have night terrors—you can also have them wear an amethyst stone bracelet to sleep at night. If you are a business owner, make sure you have amethyst crystals in your workspace, as it invokes a strong business sense in the owner.
Rose Quartz is the crystal of unconditional love for you and your family and love all around. Freaking hippie I know. Love is everything! This is one of my most favorite crystals and I always am sure to have it in my bedroom and during my mediation practice. I would recommend having at least one rose quartz in your home space. And if you are looking to attract love, a piece of rose quartz jewelry is super duper important.

More Info On Rose Quartz from Energy Muse:
Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love that opens your heart to all types of love—love for yourself, love for your partner, children, family, friends, community, the love of everything on Earth. Meditating holding rose quartz stones or wearing rose quartz stone jewelry surrounds you in a bubble of love energy, activating the heart chakra and filling your body with positive energy. Love is the most powerful energy of all, making Rose Quartz one of the most beneficial gemstones to wear for healing.
Rose Quartz jewelry carries soothing vibrations that calm your emotions and rejuvenate both the physical and emotional body. It cleanses and revitalizes your auric field, releasing all the stress, tension, anger and resentment you may carry with you. It replaces these negative energies with feelings of hope, faith and peace for the future. The powerful love vibrations of rose quartz jewelry penetrate your heart down to a cellular level, reprogramming your cells for joy and longevity rather than despair and negativity. It is a wonderful gemstone to wear in times of stress, heartbreak and grief because it offers the emotional support and positive energy that you need in this state.
When looking to attract love, look no further than Rose Quartz. Our Attract Love, Rose Quartz Bracelet is energized for love, happiness and lasting relationships. This bracelet is THE formula for single women looking to find the love of their life. When Energy Muse co-founder, Heather Askinosie, was ready for love to enter her life, she made herself a very powerful bracelet that combined her knowledge of healing crystals, ancient wisdom and Feng Shui. That bracelet combined Rose Quartz, a Chinese Double Happiness pendant and red string—a winning formula she knew would help her find her true love. Our Attract Love Bracelet is a recreation of Heather’s original Rose Quartz bracelet. We are hoping that it will bring you love and happiness, just as it did for her.

Until I started working with my crystal soul sisters over at Energy Muse, I had no idea that I was supposed to be cleansing my crystals! Cleansing your crystals on a regular basis (weekly or monthly) is super important to keep them working toward your intention and to release bad or heavy energy from your stones. I cleanse my rocks that live around my house and office as well as all of my crystal and diamond jewelry. In this installment of my life series, I go through my step by step process for cleansing my stones as I learned it from Energy Muse.

The season is upon us for wetsuits. The water is cooling, and I have officially broken out my full wetsuit wardrobe. Early this summer I reached out the the best wet suit company on the market, Matuse, to pull some bikinis for a special segment I did for a local news show. Soon enough I was in their super cool store known as the Black Spot in North County San Diego exchanging ideas with their CEO John Campbell. And of course, I ended up buying the Matuse entire wet suit line up for myself. I purchased the Geometry Bikini many years ago at Mitch’s La Jolla. The Geometry bikini is still my favorite bikini to surf and swim. The bikini top makes my boobs look awesome with the perfect amount of support and exposure while the cut of the bottoms is perfectly shaped for a decent tan line.
Now, when the water starts to get a little chilly, I will throw on the Sophia Jacket with the Siren Shorts. Now what makes Matuse wetsuits and gear different is the fact that their material is made of GEOprene versus neoprene. Neoprene is made of petroleum, while geoprene is made of limestone. Geoprene is 95% water impermeable and neoprene is only 65%. So I choose Geoprene and Matuse. The Geoprene also stretches with your muscles better and allows paddling and swimming to be WAAAYYYYYY easier. The fit is a little bit tighter so I recommend upsizing by one size if you are going to go Matuse. The other reason I like Matuse and Geoprene is because it dries way faster than neoprene. So if I want to go for a morning surf and an evening surf, I don;t have to put back on a damp, cold wetsuit. Major bonus!
When the water starts to dip below, 70 degrees, I like to throw on a jacket like the Sophia (2mm) and keep my legs bare. I like a short with my jacket, like the Siren because it keeps my booty from being fully exposed if I get a wedgie while surfing. Which I do get the wedgie attacks in a regular bikini bottom because I do have a bit of a booty. The Siren short is also made of thin Geoprene so it dries quick.
Once the ocean turns down the temp to a cool 65 degrees I go spring suit! Spring suits have the shorts, instead of the full legs, with a long sleeve. Matuse’s Artemis Long Sleeve Spring (2mm). Other than being Geoprene, I also love this suit because it has a special tank style seal at the top of the suit to keep the water from rushing in the neck and making me freeze. I like the cut of the legs on this spring suit because the length is perfect, not too long or too short. And too short of legs on a spring suit is annoying because I get sausage legs.
And as we dip into 50 degree water, I go 4/3 with Matuse’s Artemis full suit. This is the cadillac of wetsuits. Heavy enough to keep me warm, light enough to move my limbs to swim, paddle and pop up. The fit is really tight and take mega patience, but it is totally worth it to be able to stay out in the aqua for longer.
The latest addition to my surf/swim/beach wardrobe is the Surf Fur Waterproof Parka (also avails at the Matuse Black Spot in Del Mar). OBSESSED. This is my coat for the winter whether I am going to the beach or not. In the morning or evening to surf, it’s so easy to get super chilly before and especially after the water. This parka is basically a giant awesome snuggie for water people. It has open slits hidden next to the pockets so you can get your hands under the parka and put on or take off your wet suit and swimwear. It’s long enough to bend over and not show the goods to the entire beach or parking lot when you are peeling off your suit. And I love it’s made of fleece so you can fully machine wash it and it’s quick dry. It’s my go to for balmy evenings or dawn patrol.
So if you are a mermaid water babe who only wants the best for the beach, check out Matuse and Surf Fur. I have tested a TON of the gear on the market in the past two years, and these two brands are my absolute faves.
