Allergy season is a whopper this year. And is likely to be repeated as flowers and foliage look to be having longer and longer blooming seasons. For those who’ve had it with allergy meds, take heart there is a wonderful alternative. It’s called local, raw, organic honey. We are in luck here in the San Fernando Valley, as there is an amazing little find in Chatsworth called the Valley Hive. It is an adorable shop tucked into the grounds of nursery.
They carry a number of honey flavors, like sage, avocado, and orange blossom. But the one that hits a wide array of outdoor pollen allergens is the wildflower. Take a tablespoon on an empty stomach every morning and in about two weeks, you should see a reduction in allergy symptoms. Note, this is not a cure for all outdoor allergens, but it has helped mine tremendously and believe or not, it has nearly cured our Husky, Kevin of his horrible sneezing and wheezing. Thank You Valley Hive!

Olukai’s Kaula Pa’a Kapa Espadrilles
I love an espadrille. Always have, always will. Loved them when they were in style, out of style and every minute in between. This is no dalliance, but rather a devotion that abides. And my newest flame is Olukai’s Kaula Pa’a Kapa Espadrille. As the name suggests, Olukai is a Hawaiian-based company that specializes in flip-flops, sandals, and other casual footwear.
As with any classic espadrille, Olukais have a linen upper and a seamed rope sole. So, besides adorable island-inspired names for its colors like “lanai breeze” and “lava rock,” what makes these beauties better than other espadrilles? First the jute rope heel is water-resistant and co-molded with a wet grip rubber outsole for added traction. But the capper is the drop-heel design that turns it into both a shoe and a slide – and take it from someone who has broken the back of more than one espadrille by forcing it to serve as a slide-on shoe – this feature alone is worth its weight in gold!
Best of all? A portion of every pair of Olukai shoes sold goes to support the Ama Olukai Foundation which partners with other progressive organizations interested in the preservation of Hawaiian culture and the Aloha spirit of Hawai’i. The foundation also works with other Hawaiian-based organizations that preserve Hawaiian lands and the ocean for future generations.

8-Frame Bee Hive
Too funny about the Valley Hive link! We just transferred our bees into our hive this weekend (oh man, did my neighbors ever get a show, I’m sure….). My wife and I managed to only get stung a couple of times – so, not too bad considering we’d never done it before! You can see them happily buzzing around now in our garden. At least, I think they’re happy?
Try it Yourself with this 8-Frame Beehive and Supplies. We all need to love and care for our bees!
