IMG_9922

The Holiday season is here, and we’re celebrating in Love and Lemons and everything nice.  With hand-dyed lace and flirty cuts, For Love and Lemons absolutely nails it when it comes to the perfect party dress (and pre and post-party dresses for that matter). To top it off, or rather bottom it out, they’ve just launched their Skivvies line – ultra girly, delicate, and insanely covetable lingerie. So what better time to scope out the new collections and meet the girls behind the lace. Read on for an interview with Founders Gillian Mahin and Laura Hall, and photos from their Downtown LA Design office…

The core is essential to the strength of the entire body, so why is it that working my abs seems like the most torturous thing to do, ever?! For me, my abs aren’t exactly visible, thanks to my love of craft beer and chocolate, but hey- I know that I am strong from the inside out. When I work my core, it inspires me to keep the workout going and go running or surf or something, which will only lead to more unveiling of that secret six-pack. Ready ditch the keg and bring on the six-pack? Here is a quick workout that is sure to make your stomach feel like you just pounded a cup of Fire Ball.

diy-wood-hanger
We know – hangers – not that exciting. But add some flair, and we’re all on board…if you get the drift. A slightly elevated hanger lets you display pieces outside of the closet (think vintage heirlooms or even tomorrow’s outfit) and makes a beachy display for necklaces, bracelets or scarves. They’re also a great gift idea for the style obsessed and/or the hard to shop for.
Read on for the 2-minute how-to.
