Rounding in on year 2 as an Angeleno I'm finding the rough edges of my New York exterior are not completely sanded down from an abundance of sunny days and porch-filled afternoons, but rather are still poking through thanks to traffic, vagrant alley fights and the marine layer. Today, I have more succulents, sandals and surfer speak then I ever thought possible. And I even gave into the purchase of a pair of Uggs. I swore them off then caved one "chilly" day. Herein lies the goodies of our west coast life from style and design to food & life, etc. Happy gazing.
