Business & Pleasure in San Diego: Exclusive Interview with Michael Bosstick

Business & Pleasure in San Diego: Exclusive Interview with Michael Bosstick

I had the opportunity of sitting down to talk to Michael Bosstick, founder of Dear Media, (and husband to Lauryn with about all things fashion, marketing and business! Watch this video to learn how he has built a media company from the ground up and what his plans are for the near future!

Questions I asked Michael:

-How do you choose what you wear, especially in San Diego? (He loves black jeans and sweaters, find out why!)

-Which stores do you shop at most in San Diego? (He does not like going to most stores, beware.)

-Did you grow up here in San Diego?

-Did you used to party downtown a lot? (He loves Bang Bang just like I do!)

-I interviewed your wife Lauryn all about what she loves in San Diego. (Watch that interview here!) Where do you love to eat in San Diego?

-Who as the better diet? You or Lauryn?

-Do you have any special places you take your dogs in San Diego?

-How did you start Dear Media? Tell me a bit about your background in media/marketing.

-How does Dear Media help local email podcasters?

-What’s the biggest challenge you have when hiring new people into your company? (He thinks it’s very important to clarify your message from the top down.)

-What is life like with Lauryn? (He starts this answer with, “She’s definitely not the easiest!” Oh boy!)

-What’s your favorite platform on social media right now? (His answer may surprise you!)

-Do you think one social channel will become dominant? (He is a big fan of keeping control of your audience through blogs, email lists and podcasts.)

Talking to Michael was so informative, and I love hearing about what he and Lauryn are up to in San Diego, and all over the world! If you’d like to keep up with his daily shenanigans check out his Instagram profile (or listen to his podcasts since that’s where he is most active!) What was your biggest takeaway from this interview?

HydraFacial Now Available at Love to Live Spa in Del Mar

HydraFacial Now Available at Love to Live Spa in Del Mar

Since moving to San Diego, I have really started to realize how many people here focus on skin care. Maybe it’s because we are out in the sun all day long, or because it’s warm for so long that even at night we are out having fun. Whatever the case, I have been learning a lot about skin lately, especially from Ashley at Love to Live Spa in Del Mar. The other day I stopped in to learn more about their new HydraFacial and fell in love instantly! This little machine tucked in the back is very powerful, and there are only a few spas in San Diego that have it available!

HydraFacial is a 30 minute facial that has 3 simple steps: cleanse, extract, hydrate. It leaves your face feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. I tried it out and was so surprised by how soft my face felt afterward! In the first step, Ashley exfoliated my face using instruments that were customized to my skin, which felt like a rougher, almost pumice stone massage to me. It did not hurt, although I was pretty scared that it would. I finally started to relax and realize that this is not at all as intimidating as I thought it would be.

In the second step, she extracted all of the dead skin and bacteria from my skin, and at the same time, nourished my skin with intense moisturizers. I felt a little tiny tingle, but not really much. This step felt more like a mini suction cup squeezing my skin all over.

The last step in my process was a UV light, that lit up bright blue. I loved this step. It felt like a nice warm sun, shining on my face. This helped to maximize my glow and seal off the areas that were cleaned pretty heavily. Overall I was in and out in 35 minutes and the process was not scary at all.

HydraFacial Love to Live Spa

The staff at Love to Live always have all of the answers to any questions, and they are so caring. You can also book a virtual consultation on their website if you can’t make it to their Del Mar location. Just from a 20 minute Skype call Ashley can help you choose the right makeup, skin care routine and products for your individual skin. They also offer other services so take a longer look on their site if you’re ready to learn more about your skin and how you can help it! They say after the age of 20 your skin produces 1% less collagen in the skin each year. So I have consciously decided to take better care of my skin and gain the knowledge I need to choose the best products and treatments for my face. I hope it’s not too late! Better late than never!

True REST Float Spa: Like a Massage, Only Better

True REST Float Spa: Like a Massage, Only Better

Ok ok, if you don’t know me well yet, you’ll come to learn through this story that I LOVE to relax! I will do just about anything for a good massage or spa treatment. I had heard a bit about “floating” from friends, so when True REST Float Spa gave me a chance to try it out, I agreed happily. Floating is a lot like a massage, or a yoga class, and here are my main reasons why:

Preparation Involved

Like any good spa treatment or meditation class, there is some preparation involved with floating. This treatment is nothing like anything else I have ever tried! As I arrived to True REST I was greeted by the friendly owner Mandy who walked me through the process and how things would go. I am not going to lie, the process was a bit confusing. Ear plugs, close the pod, turn on/off music, float. It all seemed like a bit much at first. I was a little scared to be honest, and as someone who can’t even float in a pool, I wasn’t even sure I would be able to do it. Thankfully, I was seated in a prep room and shown a 6 minute video that explained everything. That is when I really started to relax.

The video walked me through the ways to “float” in this pool of salt water. It showed different positions you could try, and explained what to do if your mind started to wander. I thought it was a lot like meditation, or yoga where you focus on your breath and not much else. As the video came to an end, I felt a lot more excited to get into the pod room and try it out.

Mental and Physical Benefits are Similar

Just like with yoga and massage, floating is so good for your mental and physical health. Taking care of and loving yourself takes time and dedication. Many people want to dismiss it and be selfless, never getting a massage or taking quiet moments for themselves. Floating gives you a full hour to be alone with yourself and your thoughts. No phones. No screens. Just you, and your breath. The amount of epsom salts, 1,000 lbs worth, incorporated into the float pod makes your body feel so lightweight, which in turns helps with inflammation and soreness. When I first slipped into the pod and closed the door, it was so dark, I almost started to panic. I turned on the lights so that I could get more comfortable with the process, and started to lay back and feel the saltwater take over. Immediately as I started to lay back, my body lifted off the bottom of the pod and I started floating effortlessly. I almost laughed out loud thinking about how I doubted whether I would be able to float in the pod. It seemed impossible NOT to float once I was floating. It was such a strange feeling at first, like you’re floating on a cloud. After 5-10 minutes I started to really relax, and unwind for the remainder of the time. I could see how you could get used to doing it consistently for mental clarity.

Lasting Effects

Although we can all probably agree that the effects of a massage or yoga session are not endless, they are prominent after the session for awhile. Floating is no different. For the few days after I left their Hillcrest location, I felt more relaxed, and a lot less sore! I loved the sensation of floating, and definitely think that everyone should try it! True REST is a wonderful location to visit if you’re looking for a place to try floating! They are a national franchise with over 23 locations across the country including locations in California such as Chico, Sacramento, and coming soon in Fountain Valley, Fresno, Napa, and San Francisco. I am so excited about this new relaxation technique, that I wanted to give one of you a FREE session to try it out! All you have to do is join our mailing list by entering your info below and one lucky winner will be chosen on May 1st!! Good luck, and if you have tried floating before, comment and let me know your thoughts!!

How You Can Dance to Get Fit For Your Wedding Day

How You Can Dance to Get Fit For Your Wedding Day

San Diego Wedding Planning

Photo credit:

There is nothing more special to a woman than her wedding day. My wedding was August 12th, 2017, and I will never forget that day in Coronado. (Watch the full wedding video here!) My fiancé and I looked around all over San Diego to find the best location for our ceremony, and I spent over a year planning every little detail. It was one of the most incredible times of my life, and I know every woman feels that way (at least some of the time) throughout the process!

She visualizes herself in a beautiful princess wedding dress, with a beautiful bouquet of flowers in the perfect venue. She works hard to bring it all together and everyone in her life celebrates with her. (My entire family came from Michigan for the wedding!) But sometimes, those parties, shopping trips, and lunch dates, cake tastings, and dinners begin to show up on your hips and waist as the wedding date is getting dangerously near, and for me, that was NOT a good feeling at all.

I did not want to make any more adjustments to my dress, and I wanted to look FIT and HOT on that final day! I knew I had to do a few minor things to keep up with my lavish wedding-planning lifestyle that I had so welcomely adapted, but even those adjustments were enjoyable too! Here are my top 3 ideas for how you can lose a few extra pounds while you are planning your wedding by being smart, and adding a little FUN to your routine!


1. Eat a high protein diet with variety.

Start with your food. This is not the time for fad diets. I knew if I was going to go full-out on cake tasting, I would have to go full-out on a serious nutrition plan also. High protein diets are very popular for people who want to lose weight fast. But what do they do to your body? When you cut out carbohydrates and eat mostly protein, the first thing that your body does is lose water. After that, with no carbs to burn for energy, your body turns directly to your stored body fat to make your body work. The weight-loss is dramatic, and even though I only needed to lose a few pounds, having a high protein diet allowed me to be able to enjoy planning to the fullest.

Many people think high protein diets are all lean meats and eggs, but I actually ate other things too! While meats and eggs are high in protein, there are many other foods that are nutritious, delicious, and high protein. Here are a few that I ate pre-wedding more than ever before:

  • Nuts and seeds
  • Dried fruits
  • Beans and lentils
  • Tofu



2. Drink water. (Do NOT skip this part!)

Very cold water makes the stomach contract. Drinking a glass of ice water 20 minutes before your meal will cause your stomach to contract, so, you will get full with less food. Hot liquids have the opposite effect. It is wise to stay away from hot liquids which will expand the stomach while you are dieting. Usually I would drink a glass of cold water with ice in the morning as soon as I woke up, and again in the evening before dinner at least.

I had been adding protein to my diet and exercise to my routine, so I was more dehydrated than usual. (Not to mention, I was running all around town looking at different reception locations, and meeting with florists and musicians.) These changes to your diet and exercise cause you to lose water. You must stay hydrated if you want healthy skin, shining hair, and healthy nails. Further, you need water to keep your organs functioning. Nothing can ruin a wedding faster than an illness. So drink up!

The extra water will also give you clear skin, shiny hair, and moist lips. These things are pretty important for your wedding photos.

3. Dance the pounds away.

I know this may sound weird, but the very word exercise makes me cringe. I knew there was no way I was going to start doing two-a-days at the gym to be able to eat cake. People usually start that plan out well, hitting the gym every day or two, but soon they find excuses to skip it. (I’m the queen of excuses.) The key to getting exercise is doing something you enjoy! If you like to swim, ride bikes, or take walks in the park, do it. Or, step out of the box and do something you always wanted to do, like taking a dance class.

Why dance?

Dance burns calories and tones the muscles. It also adds to your agility and stamina. You can do this as a group or solo. Whether it’s a Barre Class (like this one I took at Pure Barre in Carmel Valley) or a hip hop class at your local gym (FIT Athletic in Solana Beach has some great classes) dancing can be so fun, and a great way to shed a few pounds! Invest in some dance supplies and sign up! Tights help tone your muscles: you need proper shoes and dance outfits that allow your body to move. Don’t worry if you’ve never done it before, it’s easy, and no one is judging you!

If you want to, make this a group activity. Your bridesmaids may have a few extra pounds to burn off so they will look their best as well. Tell them where you’re headed, and they’ll be interested I am sure!

I hope you enjoyed these three tips for getting fit while you plan your wedding. It is such a precious time that only comes once in your life, so make sure you enjoy every minute! Start now and make it a group effort. You will be thinner, healthier, and more beautiful than ever on your wedding day. Let me know where and when you are getting married!!

Tantra Speed Dating San Diego

Dubbed “Yoga for your Love Life,” this Tantra Yoga-inspired workshop is not your average dating event! Equal parts relationship class and speed date, you’ll share a moment of guided connection with up to 24 dates infused with positive relating, so you’ll pick up some skills in addition to potential matches. During the event, you’ll do some basic connection exercises: breathing, meditation, light partner yoga, speaking a vulnerability, eye-gazing, dance, conscious touch (holding hands, hands on heart)… things that go a bit beyond the obligatory “what do you do/where are you from.” Of course, you’re always in charge of how you want to participate. After the event, you’ll receive your matches. Experience the magic for yourself and see why singles from New York to San Francisco–to now London!–are falling in love with Tantra Speed Date.

Tantra Speed Dating San Diego


What is Tantra Yoga?

Well, for starters, it’s not what you saw in the movie American Pie! Tantra is thousands of years old and has become a buzzword, which unfortunately has some misleading definitions. Translated from Sanskrit, it means “weaving,” which we have come to understand as oneness. Bringing oneness to yourself and consciousness to what you do. The exercises involving breathing and meditation that are a part of Tantra are designed to bring you into a state of being more present. And who doesn’t want to be more present, right?

What is a Puja?

A Puja is an intentional ceremony. Translated from Sanskrit it means reverence, honor, an offering. It is a ritual designed to open our hearts and allow us to see the inner beauty within ourselves and all beings. It invites us into the elegant dance of masculine and feminine in a warm space of oneness and connection–what a great way to start your first date!

What does it look like?

Participants form two circles facing each other. The men form the outside circle and the women form the inside, with each woman facing a man. Each pair then share a meaningful exchange through a directed exercise (a Puja “station”), which can be for a few seconds or a few minutes. Then they put their hands in Namaste, thank each other and–like a speed date–rotate to the next person. The ceremony ends when everyone has rotated full circle.

So how is this a dating event?

What makes this a “date” is that you get to choose who you enjoyed interacting with, and we’ll put you in touch after the event. We like to let the women choose. The women will get to sense each man’s personality and presence and decide who they may want to get to know better. Men will be instructed on how to be grounded and open-hearted so they can be felt. We find when we trust the wisdom of the feminine somehow it all works out.
