The editorial team has a special attachment to our new series, The Trailblazers: Rewriting the Narrative, because so many of us feel that media portrayals of women have been too one dimensional. Today, women are doing incredible things in all fields – from science and technology to finance, law, business, athletics and more. With the Trailblazers series, we hope to highlight and celebrate female role models, encourage more equal and just representation in the media, and help foster a more tight-knit community locally helping women find mentors, business partners, friends and more.
Below, you’ll find some incredible trailblazers from in and around Pacific, Mission & Ocean Beach that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Friends started to notice and ask me where I was getting my jewelry, I told them I made it and requests started organically flowing in. Read more>>
I went to fashion school in San Francisco three years ago and have always had a huge passion of fashion, beauty and lifestyle. I finally started a blog but wasn’t that dedicated to it.

I am a French girl living the dream life in sunny San Diego. I started embroidery as a hobby a year ago, when my bestfriend casually told me about a girl selling all her threads and hoops… little did I know, I would get so obsessed and turn it into a business a few months later! Read more>>
