ljphoto-9502_37479

For the New Year one always resolves to eat healthy. And what a better way to eat healthy than with some lovely cold pressed juices? We have gathered together some of our fav cold pressed juice makers which are all found in our local area. Be inspired and enthused by these glorious libations.

The Pressed Juicery

This is something of the classic pressed juice. They have easy to follow types of juice from the greens to the fruits to the milks. Each one carries it’s own delicious flavors. Personally our favorite is the Coconut Cinnamon because it tastes like a healthy horchata. pressed-juicery

Clover

Clover Juice makes us happy because we can get it right next to our studio in Culver City. All the flavors are so good and refreshing.rose-400x600

Moon Juice

Moon Juice’s name is enough to get us excited. But the thing about these juices is there is a huge variety and so many flavors packed into each bottle of juice. There juice milks are pretty awesome too drawing from almond and coconut milks. It’s making our mouth water.

beauty_nectar5_83638All of these are from good old Los Angeles, which we are proud to be a part of. So get out there and kick some resolution butt with these delicious and healthy juices!

Thanksgiving Table Inspiration

The season for thanking and feasting is upon us, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate. So in our anticipation for the big Turkey day, we have searched high and low for some inspiring and breathtaking table settings that might just be better than the food itself. The secret? Use the fruits, vegetables, and flowers of the season. We are thankful for our outdoor beauty, so why not bring it inside and add some of that living lushness! Thanksgiving dinner is an event to be remembered and we can practically taste the homemade pumpkin pie! Enjoy!SS_Cannelleetvanille_001table-top-styling-classes800d33d9558881f51fab63cdfa9bd2ffY75A4118_post_kpY75A4311_post_kp201dfeb14a78e2dde942de5e15d58267BWP_2333BWP_2379

Our Fav Fall Flavors

soft-pumpkin-cookies

The autumnal equinox has begun, and now the stars shine through the night longer than the sun beams in the sky. Fall means sweater weather, cozy strolls through the wind-chilled park, and the smell of spices permeating through the air. The changing weather means a change in food, which for us, is a wonderful thing. We have picked some of our favorite flavors to share with you during the season.

BUTTERNUT SQUASH

The vegetable you used to cringe at when you were a kid is now one of our tastiest favs. Soups are perfect for fall, which is why we are recommending this phenomenal Butternut Squash, Apple, and Fennel Soup recipe. Squash can be put in ravioli, pasta, and even on pizza. Grill it, mash it, or bake it and it will be delicious. 7d77047b177f93e189a107a575c0c4b6

APPLE

You can’t have fall without apples–they are practically synonymous. From apple tarts and pies to apple juice and ciders, we love apple season. Here is an Apple Cider recipe that you will become obsessed with. Apple_Cider_Plain

PUMPKIN

Last, but definitely not least, is the beloved pumpkin. This flavor is so famous during the fall you can find it almost everywhere. We are keeping it classic and offering a Pumpkin Cookie recipe with cream cheese frosting.  765cd70daab03c5fa690d503a6d87b3eNow that we are hungry and that you are probably shopping for ingredients, we would like to wish you a wonderful autumn weekend with these scrumptious flavors.

Wedding Trend: Naked Cakes

c7e9656eff373278c2b6a5ef25713975

Who would of thought a cake could be sexy? Once you see these naked cakes, you will never doubt it. What exactly is a naked cake you ask? Well, it’s the type of cake that almost looks unfinished. And when it comes to frosting, it stays true to the idea that less is more. Sometimes, instead of frosting, the cake will be dusted with powdered sugar–making it look like new fallen snow. This delicious trend truly takes the cake, and we definitely want some. 30b033980658cbaf04b2766bd2e41474citruscakesamymyles-wedding-35hipster-wedding-37chocolatecake53fe6215969bd$!x900etherealriver-styled-22nakedcakesbohogypset-styled-36cf1a64fd4400e9a8dff4bfe12053f3f8

If this didn’t make you hungry for a delicious slice, you might want to scroll back through it again. Have a super sweet Labor Day!

Foods that Your Skin Loves!

Glossier-Perfecting-Skin-Tint-07

We all know the saying you are what you eat, but we usual think about our size rather than our texture. Food has a huge impact on the largest organ of the body–the skin! As a society, we are more than ever on a health kick, but it isn’t just to look good in our bikinis. Eating good food makes you feel good, and further research suggest it makes your skin look good too. So here are some delicious foods, (all vegan) that will make your skin look and feel good. Feed your skin!

Chocolate contains some very strong antioxidants which protect skin. Also, caffeine applied to the skin can be used for anti-inflammatory and anti-aging.chopped-bittersweet-chocolate

Walnuts increase collagen production and skin’s elasticity. They also provide your skin with moisturizing fatty acids.walnuts

Oatmeal has great vitamins and promotes healthy digestion which increases positive blood flow. Plus you can use it in a face mask! tumblr_mdk8zvmQuL1qhhsseo1_1280

Bell peppers have been connected to having fewer wrinkles around the eyes, and they provide more keratin to help with sun sensitivity. They also have the amazing vitamins that are associated with the bright colored fruits and veggies.bel-peppers1

Pumpkin is loaded with vitamins and even enzymes to help clean the skin. There are also rich antioxidants to fight off free radicals which age the skin!seeds-pulp

Pomegranates are major antioxidants, which help protect skin from damaging toxins. You can also use products with pomegranates in them and apply to the skin for moisture!pomm

Olive oil has some of the best fats for your body. This definitely gives extra moisture to your skin which is why people with diets higher in olive oil have less aging than those who don’t. Plus you can rub it on your skin just as much as you eat it.imgSendBinarySources: {1 2 3}
