It’s not always sunny in paradise. The idea that SoCal is sunshine, palm trees and unicorns all year round is a common misconception. There are a few months before summer is in full swing where the weather is just mild and moody. This time of year is dubbed June Gloom (also called May Gray). As the air starts to warm up, the waters of the Pacific Ocean are still relatively cold, which causes clouds to settle over the ocean and creep onto land by morning. It’s pretty rough for the folks of SoCal... it may even cause some frizzing of the hair. But we all hang in there and our most recent design is inspired by this foggy phenomenon.
I just skated up to Santa Monica this morning to grab a coffee and take some time to myself to think.I shot a video with my good friend Pedro last night for a project he’s working on with Charity Water (I’ll let you guys know when it comes out).During the shoot he asked me a lot of questions about Vardagen and whenever I get interviewed I start to realize how much information is bottled up inside me.
There’s been a pit in my stomach watching the fires rage and the death tolls go up each day.I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose family or friends from this or see my home and all my neighbors homes destroyed.We’re located just south of the fire, close enough that the wind blows ash into the store
After 6 years in Fishers we’ve decided it’s time for us to close our store. Our last day will be October 20th. There’s a number of reasons for our decision but the main issue is due to our building situation. We haven’t been able to renew our lease for a while now and running a retail store month to month isn’t fun at all.
The new year is upon us and we get a fresh chance to go after big things! Although I don’t know what your goals are and how successful you’ve been at achieving them, I do know that this year you can do better. We’re all in that same boat.
