  • A garden estate high atop the hills of Los Angeles. If a garden could write poetry…. Shop their apothecary and culinary delights made using biodynamic farming and healing plants. Ogle their sun drenched photos on Instagram. Hint: subscribe to their newsletter for otherworldly recipes and prose written by the owner. Their Roma Heirloom Tomato Candle is a newly minted 2021 Oprah’s Favorite Things.

  • Follow this SoCal mom, Jessica Reed Kraus, for her investigative stories on Instagram about pop culture and celebrity. Her content plays out like a narrative with sourced material and strong hunches, each frame building on the next. Her stories are nail biters and go way over TMZ’s head. Who knew that Instagram could birth a new kind of journalism? They invented the 15 second story.

  • This closet- sized store in Dana Point, CA is a shopping must. Store owner Jenifer Singer’s handmade jewelry is the main attraction. Seed bead bracelets made with healing stones, hand- poured candles set with crystals and dried flowers, Turkish towels, anklets, and necklaces too. Fun for the kids with over 20 handmade, gluten free, and organic popsicles, juices, and ice cream sandwiches.

  • A Showtime four-part docu series that explores the legend of the most important music producer of modern time, Rick Ruben. Ruben co-founded Def Jam Records from his NYU dorm room in 1982 and went on to launch the careers of the Beastie Boys, Run-DMC, and LL Cool J. He later produced records with Jay Z, The Avett Brothers, Adele, Johnny Cash and Lady Gaga. Metta + music in Malibu.

  • Creator Vered Back uses only 100% certified organic & biodynamic essential oils, plant oils & herbs in her body and skin care line. I got turned onto this scent from NYC yogini Elena Brower and I'm fully addicted. I love it especially for day use. I love the roll on applicator and it comes packaged with a hand written thank you note surrounded in a nest of rose petals. $118

  • Best-selling author Erin Gleeson’s 3rd cook book is as charming as ever. Recipes are geared to small parties & entertaining, vegetarian and use only 3-5 ingredients. Former NYC photographer turned author, Erin hand-letters, illustrates and photographs each recipe creating a mood that evokes a cabin party in the woods of Monterey. Oh, and that cabin is fashioned to look just like Anthropology. $35 signed copy
