A quick peek at the latest goodies in store at The Well!

I stopped by last weekend to pick up a hat, and left with a Live Well hat, Well logo T and Clover Canyon dress. I guess that’s one way to celebrate a pay raise…

This weekend select shoes are 50% off online and in-store, and what better reason to buy shoes than a sale? If you’re near 10th and Olive, stop in and treat your feet!

I can’t believe it’s been over two years since I started volunteering at MADE by DWC. I still get the same “warm and fuzzy feeling” today that I did in April 2011.

MADE helped me see homelessness isn’t always a choice, and it’s not always the result of poor decisions. Women (and men) can become homeless due to a series of uncontrollable circumstances. Throw in today’s economy, and most of us are only one or two paychecks away from homelessness ourselves.

Seeing the growth of MADE, from a new cafe into a second retail store, reiterates we can all make a difference. I’ve been told I’m only one person. I can’t make a difference. True. I am only one person, but get a group of motivated, inspired individuals together, and we can all make a difference. Talking to our residents, hearing their stories and appreciation for our help, it solidifies why I’m here.

I volunteer at MADE the third Saturday of every month. As always, stop by and I’ll buy your coffee. Check out our new handmade products as well (I’m particularly fond of the coffee koozies). One hundred percent of MADE’s proceeds benefit the Downtown Women’s Center to provide transitional housing and services for low-income and homeless women. Want to get involved?

What motivates or inspires you? Have you made a difference lately? If so, how?

I stopped by The Well a couple days ago and snapped a few photos of Steph and Jeremy.

Loving these tops by Clover Canyon, and Steph’s Vivienne Westwood hat pairs perfect for your LA summer pool party.

Swing by The Well on 10th and Olive DTLA for the latest in fashion, hair and events. Live Well, love Well.

…Because I want to do it. Or so is the story behind last week’s shoot with Scooby.

We ventured out to Vasquez Rocks for a much needed photo adventure. Sweltering heat didn’t stop us from several outfit changes and hours of photos. Not to mention the breathtaking geology. I couldn’t wait for the final result.

To see more from out shoot, check out Scooby’s site Skinny Makes Pretty. Need makeup? Val Harvey, also known as Mohawk Makeup, is your go-to gal.

Thank you so much to Scooby for the photos and Val for makeup. I feel incredibly blessed to have two such talented friends! Now what’s our next story?
