rj

RJ moved into the studio space across the way from us a year and a half ago and life has not been the same since! She is wildly funny, stylish, and a caring mama with lots of advice to dispense. She transformed her studio into a ceramics haven, with hot kilns and clay everywhere, and now I'm lucky enough to own a few pieces of her amazing jewelry holders. RJ also introduced me to Brazilian cheese bread and for that move alone, she wins.

Where do you currently reside?: Brooklyn, NY

myrtle & sage

So...LA was amazing. One of the highlights was a twilight hike at Runyon Canyon. As the sun set, the tiny buildings and houses and cars began to light up and we could see the city stretch for miles underneath. While I don't see myself leaving NYC any time soon, California does have that Californication appeal.

As we walked the dry brush emitted sweet, herbal smells. I stopped to pick sage leaves, crushing them between my fingers and releasing their scent. There was another bush; I think it was myrtle. I love myrtle, with it's fruity, almost apricot note.

To see more of what we did in LA, check out our instagram.

We ate: Pine and Crane, In-N-Out, Blockheads Shaved Ice, Sweet Rose Creamery, Axe and Sugarfish Sushi.

We shopped: Clare Vivier, Dream Collective, MyrtleBroome Street General, Tradesmen, General Store, Tenoversix, Mohawk General Store, and Tortoise General Store.

We chilled: Runyon Canyon, Point Dume, and Korean karaoke.

Thanks to Jennifer for the photos above.

a cup of jo: jenny gordy of wiksten's beauty uniform

A couple of years ago my beautiful friend Jenny Gordy moved to Iowa, making all of us here in Brooklyn who knew her so sad. She's quirky and witty, as well as talented and kind. Today she shares her beauty routine and tips on Cup of Jo and it makes me smile to think of her far away but wearing NOBLE on dates, and borrowing her husband's sweaters for the hint of Dude No.1 Beard Oil.

See her full Beauty Uniform here.

cara

Cara is one of the few friends I have who is a New York City native - a Queens girl to be exact. We met through mutual friends and became close two summers ago when we decided that we would spend one day every single weekend of the summer on the beach at Fort Tilden. A dancer by training, I always look forward to her performances (yes, I might secretly want to be a dancer).

Name: Cara Liguori

 Occupation: Dancer

 Hometown: Flushing, NY

 Where do you currently reside?: Brooklyn, NY

 Favorite MCMC fragrance: I heart PHOENIX!

 When did you first start wearing perfume? What fragrance was it?: When I was young, I used to pull all of the perfume sample pages out of fashion magazines, smell them one by one and pick my favorite just for fun. I started wearing perfume when I got a Christmas present of four perfumes in one carrying case: vanilla, lemon, jasmine and I can't remember the fourth one but its cap was blue. The first I ever bought myself as a teen was Sunflower by Elizabeth Arden.

 If you were a plant, what would you be?: A morning glory.

 What’s in your refrigerator right now?: A lot. Leafy greens, sprouts, dark chocolate, butter, mushrooms, corn, miso , and hummus to name a few.

 Three words that describe you: Discerning, compassionate, enthusiastic
