Ernest Palm Springs

Surprise! You can actually find a proper coffee in Palm Springs, Ernest Coffee Co. Although it was not consistent every day I was there, it beats out the other options. And when this Aussie girl ordered a Flat White they knew what I was talking about…unlike the majority of American cafes I visited. Perfectly situated in the heart of Palm Springs uptown design district, the decor is suitably modern and carries a hipster vibe. It means you can get your caffeine fix while people watching and then…shopping. Perfect.

5 reasons to buy that Louis Vuitton agenda

So in an effort to inspire myself to continue working my ass off into 2016 and beyond (ok ok… I am really procrastinating work by browsing online…busted!) I thought I would look into buying a beautiful agenda… a Β Louis Vuitton of course! But at around $750… I might have to wait a little longer…(insert sad face here). However, in saying that I think it would be a great investment and here is why:

  1. It is reusable and lasts forever because it is ‘LouisΒ tough’. (That is a new phrase I just invented πŸ™‚ )
  2. It is an investment. Buying crap agendas or organisers for around $40 a year for the rest of your life is not really saving money is it? And how uninspiring is it when they start curling in the corners, or when the pages break and they get dirty. We all know the answer… we stop using them.
  3. It is more ethical and much better for the environment. Seriously, think of how many millions of plastic diaries & agendas go into landfill each year, not to mention the labour conditions of the people making them & the pollution created manufacturing that plastic every year. With a Louis Vuitton agenda, just replace the paper inside…
  4. On that note, instead of filling it with the Louis Vuitton pages, you can fill it with Filofax pages which are equally awesome.
  5. Finally, and most importantly… It Β looks great and everytime you pull it out, you feel like a BOSS.

While in Los Angeles I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to see Mick Rock’s photo exhibition at Taschen’s on Beverly Boulevard.

The exhibition consisted of formal shots as well as intimate back stage and on the road Β photos. I love Bowie and it was so cool to get a peek behind the scenes.

Mick Rock, who is often dubbed “The man who shot the 1970’s,” also photographed Pink Floyd, Lou Reed, Queen, Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Blondie and well… the list goes on.

While at the Taschen I also was able to look at many of their other original works and I just wished I had one of their amazing coffee table books in my suitcase… Next time.
