Swings, skeeball, sips and sunsets- this new venue has it all. Viewpoint Brewing, North County's latest brewery (and Del Mar's first), has rolled up it’s doors to share it’s brews and ocean breeze with locals. Featuring an open-concept restaurant with an expansive patio, lounge swings, and sweeping lagoon views, this new spot is the ultimate place to drink a few cold ones and gather with friends during the summer.
Where do you go to celebrate all things fantasy-filled, childlike, magical and glowing? Disneyland, of course. So it should come as no surprise that the California adventure park has added a glowing, hero-worthy lavender lemonade to their menu’s offerings. Not to worry, it’s booze-free and fit for the kiddos as much as the adults. This Infinity-Ade will be available all summer long, in all its glowing ice cube glory.
Part of the Summer of Hero Celebration at the park, Disneyland has put together a few creative menu concoctions that are worthy of a superhero fanatic’s attention. And since we love a good day of getting the kiddos together to explore, we’re all about this Infinity-Ade. Besides, it’s popping up all over the ole ‘gram. Trend alert! Can't wait to see if glowing ice cubes become the next cronut.
Last night, haute couture found itself out of the fashion house and into the California hills for a Western inspired fashion show full of tents, hot air balloons, and guests sitting on woven rugs. Located at the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve in Calabasas, Dior set up camp for the ultimate American West glamping experience.
Paying homage to Gone With the Wind and Little House on the Prairie, Dior’s artistic director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, chose the same hills and valleys that these iconic Western films took place at for her first cruise line. Keeping with the tributary motif, Chiuri drew inspiration from Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings for the intricate designs and patterns adorning the pieces.
There’s mystery to the desert. It’s so alien, so empty, so unruffled—and that’s exactly what makes it so keen for an art festival. With endless space and a strange sense of vast void, how could it not play as the perfect blank canvas for experimental minds? Such was the thought process behind Desert X.
The inland desert oases of Southern California make for the perfect showcase venue of contemporary artists. Palm Springs puts out the welcome mat and provides the charm, while the surrounding Coachella Valley operates as host for Desert X’s curated exhibition of site-specific work. The ongoing festival is scattered throughout town and valley, so it has all the makings of an assumedly more cultured scavenger hunt. While Desert X first opened its arms in February, it’s still going strong. In fact, the art festival doesn’t close up shop until the end of April. The installations are free to behold and there's no ticket necessary. However, your best stop to kicking off the artsy adventure is the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs. There, you can score a catalog and a map, along with the festival's merchandise and the artists' books.

Imagine being able to camp in Big Sur with all the warmth and comfort of home. Think about waking up in a private hideaway with the coastal breeze rolling in and the forest quiet mellowing out every muscle as you stretch your arms and legs on the wooden deck of a private hideaway. It technically doesn’t even have to be a bedroom behind you. It could be a guest suite, office, cocktail lounge, or yoga studio. It sounds magical, right? Well, it’s totally possible now.
This week's #BirthdayBucketList is the Autonomous Tent, the world's first transportable five-star boutique hotel. Promising freedom and adventure, Autonomous Tent enables a life of luxury without boundaries. Its name is a tad misleading, because while it looks like a tent from afar, it actually operates like a tiny cabin with the interior of a stylish hotel room.
In short, it’s amazing.
