I am loving the work of stylist/designer Lula Aldunate, aka Lulaland. Lula wears many hats, from photo-styling to designing tables, interiors and sets, her work (checkout her pillows and crocheted blankets) incorporates the european and latin sensibility that she acquired while living in Italy and Spain as a young adult.

Sisters Alexandra and Louisa Burch have recently launched a sportswear line called Trademark. And it’s good. Inspired by American minimalist design, the 105 ready-to-wear pieces range start out at $34 and top out at $500 and sure to be closet staples. We love the sharp styling and super chic accessories – specifically the handbags and silk scarf fastened around the neck.
The Oscars are just a couple days away and and the one question on everyone’s mind is – besides who will win the golden statue, of course – “what will Hollywood’s leading ladies be wearing on the red carpet?!” To keep our anticipation at bay for the moment, London digital media agency Media Run has created an infographic of every winning dress worn by the Best Actress recipient since the first Oscars in 1929.

Will you be tuning in on Sunday evening?

Song Saa Private Island Hotel sits amongst the Koh Rong Islands, along the untouched area of the Cambodian coast, and boasts 27 thatch roofed villas that each have their own private pool and outdoor bath. Activities like diving, sailing, kayaking, snorkeling and simply relaxing seaside seem perfect just about now . . .
