Outside the Box 2012

Get ready to countdown to a new year with a game plan:

You had your New Year's Kiss..Now it's time to get to business!


Forget Mission: Impossible. With the new year HERE take a step towards your goals and resolutions in hand for the next 365 days. 2012 is ready for take off and so are you! If you are fortunate enough to live along the Cali's Golden Coast then branch away from the smartphone, inspiration board or Thomas Guide and do the REAL thing. 

Here is a list of Poetry's MUST see and DO and TRY whether you are a Cali native or a nomadic visitor.

Resolution: CA 2012


Yes, Sur!


From our friend Wiki, "Big Sur is a sparsely populated region of the Central Coast of California where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise abruptly from the Pacific Ocean." Find more info on the Chamber of Commerce direct website:

Zip, Zip and Away!


Zip lines are cable traverses designed to enable adventurers to use gravitational force from the top to the bottom! So what better way to rise to the top then in Catalina Island. Read this article from Planetey  for more helpful information on getting started.

Big City Lights


:Sigh: The Gaslamp District in America's Finest City- San Diego! For an all honest opinion use Virtual Tourist for a truthful take on where to go and what to see! Then make the night all your own and eat at a flavorful new joint or an ultra hip lounge by searching Urban Spoon.

Sweet, Sauce..

Nestled next door to good ol' San Francisco is the tiny city of Sausalito. Check out Sausalito in 2 days or 2 hours with this handy brochure guide from


Nature vs. Nurture

According to Tahoe's Best, Lake Tahoe is the perfect year around vacation and wedding spot! So we know this is right around your alley! See why, here.


Over the Hills & Far Away


"Breathtaking views abound at every turn – mustard in the late winter, picturesque rolling hills planted with vineyards year-round and wineries of every stature dot the landscape." Go to

Try something...


A picture a day takes the Dr. away... ok maybe not FDA proven, but laughter and apples do! So we figured this might be the next best thing. Capture your beautiful self this year in all your glory via iPhone, Polaroid, Instagram.. You get the picture.


Make a New Friend

Puppy. Birdie. Ladybug. Neighbor. Befriend someone new or distant and make it worthwhile.


Leave a lasting impression.

Whether it be in your style, your personality, your talent or craft. Just be you with a splash of color this year!


Save for Something Special

Your wedding day, the must have dress, the new tool for the shed, a trip for the whole family, nothing better than having some savings for those wishful thoughts!




Put on your "Sunday's Best" and head out somewhere refreshing. Put a little money away to see a sight you've never set your eyes on. Pack light and hold on tight as you escape the everyday routine.

Get Comfortable.


When it's all said and done, get comfy! Whether it be that long walk on the beach or snuggling up in some new bedding. Our comfort zone? Our booth of course. Filled with props and well, our favorite thing.. You! So this year, Say Cheese with a booth by Poetry Booths. Why? Because we will make you smile, that's a promise :)

Reminder, Countdown is ON!
