On a whim, I decided to check out this boutique store in Temecula called Tangerine. I'd been there years before bc my sister's friend Jody had told me about it. It stands out because it has designer clothes - True Religion, Juicy Couture, James Perse, Paper Denim, Splendid, Hudson, etc in the Inland Empire.
I thought of it initially for my mom, who has a hard time reading these days, because you can adjust the font size. The more I look at it though, I realize that I want one too. Very cool. Seems great for newspapers, since I tend to view them online these days anyways. The reviews are great.
Summer is here, So Cal is scorching, and it's time to jump in the pool! Every Saturday and Sunday from 1pm-7pm, the Standard Hotel in Downtown LA hosts a raging rooftop pool party! Listen to different DJ's every week while you enjoy your drink, the view, and your nice new tan. I haven't gone yet but have heard good things about it and plan to go soon.
Raw-Edges design was founded by an Israeli duo, Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay. I like their work because you can tell that their style is useful but interesting and they don't create abstract things that can't be manufactured or don't have practical function.

Jen Stark: "It started when I was attending Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and decided to study a semester abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France. I could only bring two suitcases with me for five months so I decided to only bring necessities and purchase art supplies when I got there. The Euro was high and when I went into the store to look for supplies I decided to get something inexpensive, but with potential. I saw a stack of construction… Continue

I've done a few posts now outside and inside the Met about our wonderful members. A lot of them have been focused on photographers or artists but today I wanted to highlight an old friend, someone near and dear to our hearts, Gary Zane. Gary has been in our lives in one way or another for over 10 years now. We all met while going to undergrad at UCLA and he was even a groomsman in our wedding.

Last night, our friend Theresa celebrated her birthday in K-Town. We headed to Palm Tree LA on Wilshire and New Hampshire for some karaoke and Korean "tapas" (which is actually just easy to eat Korean food). I'd been to this place before, for my friend Grace L's birthday, and I must… Continue
