Friday? More like Fri-yay!

If your memorial day weekend plans involve ….   Going on a Date Republique seems to one of the hottest places to eat in LA. It’s located in a 1920’s building and would be the perfect place to meet up. If it’s not going to so well though, here are the best ways to end a truly awful date. People…

Kittens!

This might be the least artsy rad ish post ever, but my parents are fostering kittens and they are too cute!They’re the most important thing happening in my life these days (obviously) so I’m just going to let you look at them doing various kitten things. We’re also fostering the mom, so we get to watch precious domestic scenes like this… and sweet…

Artist Feature: Alex Siegel

A year and a half ago, I took a magical college class on California native plants in which I got to travel around the state and go on hikes with 23 other amazing humans. I first met Alex Siegel when he showed up to one of our camping trips (his sister was in my native plants class) and participated in…

We’ve Got Cats On The Brain (P.S. It’s Friday!)

  There were just too many cute (and weird) (and silly) (and ridiculous) cats that caught our attention this week. Enjoy the feline frenzy: Utter bastard of a cat: this cat’s foster dad got real about what to expect from the bad, bad Mr. Biggles. A life of freedom: watch this nature documentary about cats living in the streets of…

Five Road Trip Jams for Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend is coming up, and you know what that means: beer on the beach, camping trips, barbecues or backpacking. If you’re loading your cooler into your car and hitting the road, you’ll need a sweet road trip soundtrack to get you going. Here are a few songs to get your playlist started.

The Easiest Bread (But Not the Quickest)

I love love love baking bread! And while I normally stick to a classic rosemary focaccia recipe, this weekend I decided to branch out and try my hand at “no knead” bread: it takes foreeeeever to rise but the bread pretty much makes itself as long as you plan ahead. I followed this recipe on Pinch of Yum, which promises…

My People Watching Problem

A year’s worth of reflection on the Copenhagen Fashion Scene:   I love Europe. I remember coming as a child and swooning over women in heels walking cobblestone streets, carrying soft leather bags and draped in some white linen or patterned silk scarf. It was a romantic scene highlighted by dappled sunlight and summer ease. These memories are mostly located…

It’s Fri-Yay!

Welcome weekend warriors! What better way to kick off these two days of bliss than to check out what has kept us distracted this week. Happy clicking!   In case you forgot that summer is coming: Plan your travels (Greece anyone…)! Maybe allow for a little spontaneous travel and let “everywhere” be your destination of choice. For the lovers of stay-cations,…

Stopping to Smell the Roses

Half of my motivation to run for the past month has been to see all the rose bushes in my neighborhood in full bloom. The colors have been quite a treat, especially since I know the brush-filled hills around my house will be turning brown in the very near future (yay for SoCal summers). My well-intentioned runs have evolved into…

If You Like This, You’ll Probably Like That

If you’re looking for new music but don’t want to wander too far from what you already know you like, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve put together several song recommendations below based on artists that you might already know and be familiar with. Some of the recommendations are based on real life events. For example, Jamie Lawson opened…
