What’s Better than Shopping Local?

Answer: Shopping local talent while sipping a lovely glass of wine!

An Attitude for Latitude

Do you see this necklace being modeled by actress Alicia Lagano*?

Eco-Reco: June Fifteen

Eco-friendly totes are everywhere, and they may be practical, convenient and keep plastic bags out of landfills, but rarely do they make you stop, look, and go “ooh.”

Enter June 15, Inc. and their have-to-have eco-chic totes. I first noticed them  last year at the Mar Vista Green Fall Festival and then again at the […]

Come to the Green Side. We Have Cookies

… organic, fair-trade, vegetarian, whole grain, locally produced, solar-oven-baked, low-carbon-footprint cookies, that is. Or would be if we actually HAD cookies.

No, I’ve been too busy to bake cookies, but I HAVE been doing my part for the green side.  Besides redesigning and reconceptualizing (ooh! big word! Don’t run away — I promise I […]

We’re Livin’ La Vida Locavora
