MADE Update

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

I’m a couple months in to volunteering at MADE and I absolutely love it.

Just a few updates from the cafe… We are partnered with the local, eco-friendly company Groundwork Coffee. Our food comes from Tiara Cafe prepared daily with the freshest organic, seasonal products. We are also appreciative of our partnership with Bloomingdales.

The ladies are still hard at work making jewelry, soy candles, succulent arrangements and mod podge art, while taking classes to expand their skills. These make great gifts!

MADE is making a difference in downtown and we’ve got some big plans for next year. Think expansion, clothes, home decor and more… For now, check out our cafe at 438 S. San Pedro Street near 5th.

Wish I could be at the cafe this morning, but I’m on my way to NYC! Stop by and order a dirty chai for me. MADE makes the best!!

Hope to photograph this hair-salon-slash-tattoo-parlor again, this time when the guns are going!

Gaga Stole My Look

Left: Me circa 1996

Thanks Mom for sending this over! Anyone else have celebrities copying their awesomely bad ’90s attire?

*Side note: I don’t really think Gaga copied my look.

Political Street Art

Sunday, August 14th, 2011


The 2012 elections are still over a year away, but they’ve already influenced LA street art. I’m frothing at the mouth with the prospect of more political street art.

Anyone else anticipating the ’12 elections? I know it’s early, but I’m already throwing my support behind Ron Paul. Click here to read up on his issues!
