It’s been ages since I’ve posted here, but this blog is not gone, there is so much to catch up on.
I’m very excited to be featured on closet visit by Jeana Sohn. It was so nice to finally meet her, and so I’m excited that closet visit is back! Here are a few outtakes from the shoot.

Last year I had the pleasure of meeting Kristina Holey at a magical potluck Thanksgiving in a beautiful little medival village in the French countryside through some mutual Californian friends living in Paris (whose blog Trail of Crumbs is amazing, if you are not already familiar with it, check it out here). I then reconnected with Holey again in Paris recently before she headed back to the states. She gave me the most amazing facial treatment I have ever had! Not only did my skin feel good but I felt really good all day.
Kristina Holey is a skincare specialist focusing on the relation between health and beauty in a whole new way. Looking at the two from a scientific and holistic more natural approach, that goes far beyond just putting some products on your face. In addition to being an amazing skincare specialist, she is also a really nice and awesome person who really cares about helping people improve their health and their skin.
She is in New York this summer and in LA this fall contact her to make an appointment.

I can’t believe I am missing this exhibition on Ray Eames at Art Center right now. She has been my biggest inspiration career-wise and I have always felt a very strong connection to the way she collected, appreciated, and displayed objects at home and in her studio. If anyone out there goes to see this and has photos please share!
On view just a few more days until May 4th at Art Center College of Design’s Williamson Gallery in Pasadena, California.
more info here.
I dream of visiting Burrow, the Kuroiwa Patisserie by Ayako Kurokawa in Brooklyn. Kurokawa is a patissier, a pastry sculptor, and a food stylist. I’m sure her creations are as delicious as they are beautiful and imaginative. I hope to get to try some one day.
See more of her amazing work here.

It’s almost Valentine’s day, and this year Tigers to Lilies is preparing something extra special! Wildflower bouquets, valentine postcards, ceramic vases, herbal donuts and a special curated collection of books by Claire from Bookstand! Wish I was celebrating Valentine’s day in LA this year!
If you are in LA and want to give something extra special check out what Lili has in the works at various locations around LA, or stop by En Soie if you’re in Silverlake to meet her in person, you can even order a special bouquet just for you ahead of time and have it delivered.
I am also so happy to share these beautiful photos of my dear friend Lili (of Tigers to Lilies) who was featured on Refinery 29 as one of the 3 chicest florists in LA.
Portraits of Lili shot by Lani Trock. all other photos by Lili Cuzor.
Also check out Lili’s new tumblr site featuring some of her photography and floral creations combined.
Very excited to share this TEDx talk featuring my dear friend, and founder of The Ecology Center, Evan Marks, who is always an inspiring and positive force to be around.
Barnabé Fillion is a french perfumer, known as a “nez” en français, whom I’ve had the pleasure to work with and get to know here in Paris. He is a unique character who not only works on creating commercial scents, but does natural and custom scents as well. I wish I could share scents via the web because they are truly beautiful and unlike so many scents you find out there. I am not a huge fan of perfumes to begin with due to the fact that I avoid knowingly putting horrible chemicals into my body, so when I find a natural scent, (that is actually only natural ingredients) I get extra excited. I have the Von Sono colaboration scent that Barnabé made and absolutely love it!
Barnabé has recently launched his website and also created a scent for The Broken Arm boutique here in Paris, whose trio I have also had the pleasure of working with and getting to know over the last couple years. The TBA scent is beautifully bottled and available now in their boutique, and of course smells wonderful.
I first discovered Barnabé’s work in New York years ago in an issue of Bloom magazine that had samples of his scents based on different places. This is something that is part of his unique approach to scents, it usually comes from a special place or point of inspiration that no one else would have thought of. His background as a model, photographer and stylist also come into play in his very visual approach to scent. Read more about him on his site here.
I had one of the nicest days visiting the studio of LA artist, and friend, Lauren Spencer King. Her talent is endless and her spirit comes through in her work. I love her sense of color and geometry, as well as her love of crystals. All the beautiful colorful objects around her studio are so inspiring. I can’t wait for her next show!
I can’t tell you enough how inspired I am by the elegant, fun, and sophisticated style of sisters Phoebe and Annette Stephens who together formed the label Anndra Neen while on a trip to Japan. What better place to be inspired to start something! Annette and Phoebe grew up in Mexico City and now live in New York, and their style could not be a better mix of these places.
When I was in LA I visited the studio of Ben Medansky (Thanks to Lauren!). Ben is a ceramic artist whose work I had first seen at the LA Art Book Fair. There were some amazing bookends there I kept eyeing, and of course they were by him. It was hard not to want to buy so many things right off the shelves of his studio! I have one little vase of his that I love, and have my eye on much more.
His work is starting to pop up everywhere.Check out his site to see more, or see it in person at Bookstand at the Standard Hollywood, or at Iko Iko in LA.
I’m very excited that this weekend at 0fr, Cecile Daladier who I’ve posted about before will be selling some plants and pots along her husband Nicolas Soulier, who will be speaking about his powerful book “Reconquering the Streets” and talking about Japanese potted gardens. Plus there will be an exhibition of photos for the launch of new issue of The Plant Journal by Daisuke Hamada. Plus an after party at Candelaria, who has a new site made by David. This is an 0fr event not to be missed!
18h15-19h: discussion autour du livre “Reconquérir les rues” en présence de l’auteur, l’architecte urbaniste Nicolas Soulier, et focus sur les jardins de pots au Japon avec projection des photos de Daisuke Hamada pour The Plant Journal.
21h15: soirée à la Candelaria
Tout le week-end: pop-up store de boutures et jardinières Assaï. Apportez votre pique-nique, terrasse 0fr végétalisée pour l’occasion.
I love the work of artist Fumiko Imano. I just found a link to her blog, and was reminded of how much I love the playful spirit of her work. It looks like she has a cool exhibit up in Singapore right now. I was so sad I just missed her show with Kotori Kawashima in Tokyo by a couple days when I was there.
