One of the most anticipated EPs of the year was released recently. Kendrick Lamar made his debut with the release of M.A.A.D city. As a fan who’s been following Lamar’s music for over three years, I think his acclaim is well deserved. Most importantly, the debut EP actually actually lives up to the hype. Bonus!

Founded by brother and sister duo, Marcelo and Ilana Kugel, in 2010, Koral Wear is a premier American-made (LA) luxury lifestyle brand. Brazil’s vibrant colors, and vivacious, sexy styles alongside Los Angeles’ healthy, active beach culture were the inspirational forces behind it. With roots in Brazil and LA, the infusion of both cultures and lifestyles in their designs was a natural choice for the siblings.

Sofia Lacin and Hennessy Christophel recently completed Same Sun, the hand-painted, abstract mural and kinetic shadow installation on a five-story, 14,000-sf water tank in California. One third of the five month project was hand-held brushwork, done solely by the two artists. The artwork has a unique kinetic element whereby the installation interacts with the sun through shadows that move across the tank and complete the phrase, The Sun Shines Upon Us All, creating an interesting connection between time and place.
Do you remember the first time you went to the beach? This is three year-old Nicole’s first time ever playing at the beach. I don’t remember my first time in the sand or water, but I can only hope that I had this much fun! On a technical note, this was shot entirely on the […]
I absolutely adore Sauce on Hampton in Venice Beach, California. The cultured, little café, buried just off Rose Ave, may only serve up fifteen dishes, but they are all equally divine. The quinoa salad, omelets and the freshly baked macadamia cookie, which comes free with the cheque, tick all the boxes on my list.

Enter Choclatea, Smile’s line of tea-infused chocolate bars, each of which combines the finest Belgian chocolate with crushed organic tea leaves.
