We are building a community dedicated to empowering ladies with self-love
& inspiring health, creativity, and adventure on the daily.

Created by a designer + lady surfer + health lover
Years of surfing and traveling as an outdoor fitness ambassador for Roxy Quiksilver, working at a yoga studio, teaching kickboxing, pilates, and on herbs & superfoods, led to the desire to craft an active lifestyle brand rooted in holistic health and happiness.
With inspiration from my bohemian upbringing in Santa Barbara, CA surrounded by music, fabric, craftsmen + surfers, a BFA from Otis College of Art, + my love for murals + design, I dove into this building a dream. 
It was while living in Kauai, I found myself moving most freely from the mountains to the sea to the yoga mat to the town always wearing the same simple sports bra under flowy tops.
But clashing, computer-generated prints, and neons didn’t resonate my vintage-collecting old soul. I wanted all-day active wear in natural colors + culturally-inspired + retro prints. 

From the prints, patterns + line sheets, to the logo, mission, + video,
I’ve been hand-designing every detail to embody beauty & wellbeing from the inside out. 
Based in inspiring, active coastal mountain of Santa Barbara
Made with Love in CA.


+ simple, lasting styles
+ flattering, minimal cuts
+ 2 soft fabrics to choose from
+ hidden stretch stitching
+ product tested & fixed 3x to ensure fit
+ prints hand-designed with a love for art history

– Sporty Spice is no longer your only active option
– No plastic, zippers, grommets, or gimmicks 
– No uncomfortable, unwashable details
– No clashing computer prints or neons
– No mass production abroad
– We’re not corporate!

All the hand-designed prints for ‘Bold As Love’ are based on my upbringing in a bohemian warehouse of fabric, music, artists, and surfers. 

Soft, stretchy, simple styles 
You can feel comfortable throwing on and living in
Look good on the go and empowered to pursue what sparks joy in you.

It’s been a radical one year of learning, growing, and taking all the tiny steps necessary to ensure 
a brand, product, and message that truly aligns mind, body, and soul. Here is how far PH has come!

– Logo, mission, and web design | Gypsyeye.com
– Back to Otis College of Art and Design  (my alma mater Yew!) to properly learn textile design
– Found & developed relationship with the right ethical manufacturer in CA
– Sourced the softest, stretchiest, high-quality fabrics with a vintage feel
– Designed all fabric prints
– Color corrected all the fabric prints… you have no idea
– Rolls of fabric printed!
– Made patterns 
– Made samples
– Fittings
– 3 Rounds of Fixes – to get the fit just right!
– Shot & styled & edited the Look book + video
– 2 murals for local art non-profits sponsored by PH!

A little influence (and a big smile!) can go a long way.
Every donation gets us closer to establishing platform from which PH can empower ladies!
