FEMME FRIDAY // Olivia Katz

FEMME FRIDAY // Olivia Katz

I first met Olivia peddling buttery brews at what was my local favorite coffee spot - Another Kind of Sunrise. We miss it! And we miss running into her bubbly face on the weekly. She was always good for a laugh with the right amount of sarcasm and sense of humor.

Fortunately, since then, I started seeing her on my daily coffee shop bounce around Venice. Both of us 'getting work done'... but yes, really.

Olivia is a talented photographer, photogenic in her own right, funny and smart. She's got a solid BS filter that I really...

IN PURSUIT OF PLEASURE // Nourish Your Beauty

You'd be living under a rock not to recognize that self-care has become trendy. This idea that women, yes mostly women, are perpetually lacking in the tools to take care of themselves has really become quite the marketing trend.

FEMME FRIDAY // Christine Dionese

With the theme of pleasure leading the way, there is no better time than to introduce you to my friend Christine Dionese. Christine always surprises me with her well informed, spot on, insight into all things female + wellness. She describes herself as scientific, but she offers something much more than that.

She has this intelligent comfort because her opinions are well researched, and backed up by science. You don't just feel like your hearing something regurgitated...

The Coconut Dope // Vol 2

We're still buzzing on spring over here, and feeling all kinds of inspiration. With the sun in Aires we're feeling that fire starter flame of breaking ground and getting it done. This spark of energy is a gift to produce creativity that we can catalyze! Tis' the time to transform. Don't be afraid of ideas and let all your reveries flood in.

As Proust so brilliantly said, "If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time."  

Here are some of the things that are keeping this weeks...

FEMME FRIDAY // Emily L'Ami

One of favorite new LA people is Emily L'Ami. Emily came to the US by way of winning the green card lottery from New Zealand, and we're glad to have her! She and her husband Fred are both fantastic designers with a keen eye for detail and overall exquisite taste. We've been working with them on some of our own projects and it has been so lovely to connect. All in for cool husband and wife teams working together!

Emily's brand Bodha Modern Wellness serves as a therapeutic perfumery for all the at home rituals that...
