How To: Do As The California Locals Do Without Looking Like A Tourist

I’ve lived in California my whole life. I grew up going to the beach, eating In-N-Out Burger, and soaking up the care-free lifestyle. California culture is unlike any other state I’ve visited. We talk about freeways as if they’re places – e.g “THE 5, THE 91, THE 405”. Anything below 65 degrees is freezing and requires a full winter wardrobe. On that same note, it has to be 65 degrees or colder to make us take off our flip flops. Chances are if some one says “gnarly” or “dank”, they’re from California. And most importantly, we know the In-N-Out secret menu by heart.

Let’s face it though, California is expensive AF.

It’s pretty standard to pay $2700+ to rent a small 2 bedroom 1,000 sq. ft. apartment and even the ugliest of houses in need of serious renovation start at $800,00. Before I found California Found, I was afraid I’d have to live in California my whole life to keep a hold of my California culture.

California Found really gives you a taste of California culture.

But what is California Found?? California Found is a monthly subscription box filled with full-size California creations ranging from beauty, style, home, and gourmet goodies. The whole box is $49 or less and you receive over $90 in small batch, artisan made goodies. Not only does it allow everyone to experience California culture in the comfort of their own home, but it supports local California vendors. I’m all for that.

But what comes in the box?!

It’s a surprise! Each month there’s something new; sometimes they leak a product on their social media, but surprises are the best! Trav hates them but I live for surprises.

Keep scrolling to see what came in my September subscription box.

Herb and Orchard Ready-Made Water Infusions: $8.99ea

4 packets come in each of these larger packets and they’re meant to add a little subtle flavor to your water. All you do is add it to your bottle of water. Or in sure California fashion, add it to your stainless steel reusable water canteen.

Kalcie Bracelet: $28.00

These “lucky” beads are a reminder for all of us to know that we attract luck into our lives every day if we just believe we can. I’m excited to add this bracelet to my stack; beaded bracelets are the best California Style accessory.

Soul Spark Candle: $23.99

Each candle is hand poured with a soy/coconut wax blend. Each candle has an affirmation on the lid and a charm at the very bottom. This one is California Plumeria Mango

Darling Daydream Cards: $15.00

Remember: Everyone loves a handwritten card to let them know you love them.

Bonblissity Moisturizing Candy Scrub: $20.00

These adorable single-use scrubs are great for on-the-go. Each individual scrub has cocoa, shea, and avocado butter in them to moisturize and exfoliate.

I love my California Found box.

I was gifted this box but definitely wanted to share this box with the world. This subscription box is a great treat for yourself AND a great gift for a friend. I will definitely order a box for a girlfriend’s birthday or just to tell my mom I love her. Hopefully you found this article useful and have some one you’d like to gift a box to. If you do, shoot me an email, I’d love to hear your experience too!

They have given me a discount code: LOVEKATELYNN and you’ll receive $10 off your first box.

P.S. In case you’re wondering about the In-N-Out Secret Menu…

This is what I order: A grilled cheese with grilled onions, extra pickles and a side of animal fries, hold the onions.

Def give it a try 😉
