A COLLECTION OF LIFE-LATELY-FAVORITES.
PEOPLE, PLACES, AND THINGS ON OUR MINDS
...AND IN OUR VIRTUAL SHOPPING CART.
González and González is my favorite minimal, country chic home goods shop right now, and I am pretty sure I need EVERYTHING! Which is why I am super excited to pay them a visit when I visit Madrid this Spring.
The one thing you can always rely on? A good pair of jeans. We have a great variety of denim ONLINE. It's crazy, I know, but we have provided all kinds of measurements that you can compare with to make shopping for vintage denim online easy peasy.
With the cold weather officially here I have so much more time to binge watch Netflix. I binged watched the whole season of Tidying Up with Marie Kondo in a weekend and greatest show ever. After watching the show I realized I needed to go through everything I own and get rid of anything that didn't bring me joy or I was keeping for "what if I need this one day." This show made me finally helped me tackling my closet which had been a mess for a probably a year and now I can easily take clothes out of my closet. I recommend everyone watch this show to motivate you to organize your living space.
My body knows when I’m traveling, and that doesn’t mean it goes into carefree mode; it really means that I start to feel out of whack. I decided to start handling the stress by choosing a brand of CBD oil from a local grocery store with a coconut oil base, rather than the olive oil base I’ve used before. That being said, I prefer this thinner consistency way beyond the thicker olive oil. An additive in the previously used olive oil based brand is monk fruit extract - which can be a terrible digestive irritant. The more you know! I’m happier with this brand I’m using now.

ASHLEIGH PARSONS, AKASA FOUNDER AND CONSULTANT QUEEN OF EVENTS, START UPS, FASHION & FOOD.
Hauser & Wirth is one of my favorite LA galleries a) because it's free b) because it's beautifully designed and c) because they're always showing interesting and engaging artists.
I hike almost everyday so since I live on the Eastside, Griffith Park is my go-to. For a longer, more meditative hike, I prefer Dead Horse Trail in Topanga Canyon. You'll see wild sage, deer and wide open fields with nature as far as the eye can see.
Perhaps it's because I was raised on the east coast but I'm corduroy obsessed. Barcelona based designer and artist Paloma Wool has created a brand that's relevant, beautiful, edgy and everything you want to wear.
I drink a cup of home brewed coffee in my V60 every morning, but beyond that I'm a tea drinker. I like many different teas but California based tea company Leaves and Flowers is a favorite.
For everything cozy and casual - undies, bras, ts and sweats - I go for Entireworld.
Plants pots, plants pots - Sanso (Korean word for oxygen) opened in Frogtown recently and their studio is one of the most beautiful I've seen in LA. Immediately upon entering, you'll be inspired to plant and pot in your own home.
I'm a lifelong practitioner of yoga but recently I've gotten into boxing because it's such an empowering sport. I love going to Crubox with a buddy early morning, before the work day begins.
I have super sensitive skin and I have to be careful with what I apply to my face. Noto Botanics Deep Serum is a healing oil and I apply it daily for a healthy, natural skin glow. Noto's products in general are some of the best on the market right now.
I'm not really a handbag person but I recently fell in love with LA Based brand VereVerto The Luna bag is a playful fanny pack, crossbody, and clutch all in one!
I prefer walks for meetings so I'm often asking friends and colleagues to meet for a loop around the Silverlake Reservoir or LA River Bike Path. I find the best brainstorm sessions occur when we're moving our bodies and staying active.
For the occasional manicure when I decide to go against my usual nude, J. Hannah line and color palette is a must.
