The good folks at MKDIR did a little write up on me, featuring some of my favorite LA food and shopping spots. While my picks may not be that surprising, they laid it out so beautifully and made me fall in love with each all over again. Thanks for reminding me that I'm glad to be home. Read/view/soak it all in here.
Anything I can do from the comfort of my pajamas within arms reach of Cheetos, is basically an automatic favorite. I recently got to try Commodity scents. Their convenient fitting kits allow you to test their range of scents all without skipping a (Netflix) beat at home. I tried both the men's and women's. It's nice that you get to test it out on your own time in your own way. I find it helpful to wear a scent for a day and let it mix with your natural pH to see if it's actually a good fit. In the end it came down to Dew for me and (a little borrowing from the boys' Cane). Pro tip: also a good way to force your mate into the scent you like (but you didn't hear that from me). Order a kit here.

Another exciting visual by Mat Maitland for the new Printemps inside the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris.
"The screen of the site-specific video installation is housed inside two mirrored hexagonal prisms located outside the entrance of the Printemps. Designer products are placed in the centre to give the view the feeling of collision between fashion and visually daring images." Indeed! Watch just the video here, you won't be sorry!
