Los Angelenos! We’re heading back to Cali. The next installment of WORK PARTY takes place at the most beautiful Breather space in Venice and our guest mentor is the phenomenal Shelley Kleyn Armistead - a powerhouse partner at Gjelina Group (yes, that Gjelina and that Gjusta). Tickets are extremely limited, so get yours, like, now.
I just got back from Mexico City and it was life-changing. Among many incredible moments, I was especially moved by my visit to Frida Kahlo’s Casa Azul in Coyoacan, which she shared with her painter husband Diego Rivera. Despite having an incredibly tumultuous relationship, the evidence of their love and mutual admiration in the house was so inspiring. #RelationshipGoals for real.

Angela Davis in conversation at the Women of the World Festival in London the other week. Say no more. (Via The WW Club member Portia Barnett-Herrin - thank you Portia!)
Congratulations to our friends Chi-San and Natali of The Pressery on their new book A Simple Table: Recipes & Rituals for a Life in Balance. I can’t wait to get my copy. (Alas, it doesn’t seem to be available to US customers but you can always listen to our live conversation from an event I hosted in London last summer for loads of useful food and drink-focused biz advice).
