A bathroom to change it ALL

What if we just focus on the bathrooms? Could I change the whole house? That’s what this couple looked for when they turned to the Life.Style studio. Result: four bathrooms, four styles, total renovation!

Sometimes none, forgotten and delayed in our reforms, in the bathroom lies part of the essence of a home. Because we may not have thought about it, but what if we just changed the bathroom? Would not we be left with a house as new (or at least our feeling would be!)? At least that was the way the owners of this American home, a couple who had just had a new child and who looked for new airs to receive it.

16 Stellar Los Angeles Spots for Lunch, Fall 2016

In Los Angeles, lunch is a verb. People lunch with their friends, lunch with their business partners, and take midday meetings over arctic char salads near the beach. That’s why there are endless options for dining well in the middle of the day, from high-end business spots to low key options with speedy service and a reduced price point. LA’s got it all.

Gresescent: Serving Ice Cream Magic In DTLA

Gresescent opens in DTLA and they’re serving lots of fresh velvety ice cream magic

As a kid, I enjoyed to chant, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!” I usually did this when, a) ice cream was involved, or b) I wanted ice cream involved. So touche. We all have our moments, and mine just so happened to revolve around ice cream. Why? Because ice cream is delicious and special. It’s a simple pastime that’s easily enjoyed by everyone regardless of age. Qualities like those are what make Gresescent a memorable and tasty place that will make you fall in love with ice cream all over again. They’re centrally in South Park on 8th and Olive Street, close to all the construction, but don’t let that ward you off. Recently, I had the chance to meet with Gresescent’s co-founder Justin Chung to talk about the magic of ice cream, and what makes Gresescent, Gresescent (pronounced: “gres-uh-suh-nt”). There’s more to a name than meets the eye.

Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop Goes Veggie Casual With New Glendale Location

Glendale’s booming growth continues with the addition of healthy-eating salad temple Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop. The local mini-chain owned by Jon Rollo has been similarly busy of late, with outlets everywhere from Beverly Hills to Costa Mesa to the heart of Venice — and now, right in the thick of it all on Brand Boulevard.

The casual all-day restaurant officially opens to the public on October 10, joining the ranks of the recently-unveiled Shake Shack, Philz Coffee, and Mainland Poke across the street from The Americana. The only ones left to come online as of next week will be the long-awaited Eggslut.

Once Monday hits, guests at Greenleaf will be able to dive into a menu that features everything from barbecue chicken pizza to lemongrass chicken salads, with crunchier items and full chicken and steak entrees to match. There are also juices, protein shakes, craft beer, and wine available as well.
