MEET A MEMBER - NATHALIE GORDON

Image
Meet Nathalie Gordon from London who moved to LA 1 year ago to pursue a career in fashion and beauty photography. 


Was there a particular reason you chose LA ?
That’s easy… The sunshine! I have only ever lived in the UK and would travel at least 4 times a year chasing sunshine, so I figured I’d reside somewhere that has it pretty much permanently. I also wanted to do more with my photographic career and needed new inspiration. I only got so far in London before my work and the industry started to feel a bit stale.


What do you miss most from home?
Friends, Family, Percy pics from M&S and Vera… my vespa!

What was your first impression of LA and has it changed since? 
I didn’t really have a first impression. I’d never been to LA before I decided to move here. It came to me as if an unknown voice was telling me to pack up and go. A lot of people gave their own views of LA and some even persuaded me to go to New York - especially because I shoot a lot of beauty and cosmetics. What people h…

Your Weekly Horoscope by Anne Shaw 
For the week of July 22nd 2017


Stargazing with Annie ShawJuly 22nd, 2017 ·
ARIES - If you are interested love is in the air currently.This can be lovers or family or your pets. Either way enjoy this time frame. Mars your boss is in watery cancer and though this could slow things down a little take the time to compete unfinished business
TAURUS - Your finances could a problem or the lack of them more than likely. Try not to freak out over this as it is all temporary any way. Family situations will also arise due to Mars in Cancer. Be wise and keep a handle on any temper and it will cool down by mid week.
GEMINI - You would be wise to not use up all your energy next week as then your boss planet Mercury is starting a slow backward stroll so what ever energy good or negative you are holding on to will want to escape. This is not good for your overall health if you don’t let it loose and be truthful.
CANCER - You may be letting go of what you consider the pas…

MEET A MEMBER - MICHELLE MOSCZINSKY

Meet A Member: Michelle MosczinskyJuly 14, 2017 6:52 pm· Meet Michelle Mosczinsky from Glasgow, Scotland who moved to LA 23 years ago to pursue “a more fabulous life” Was there a particular reason you chose LA? I was born in Glasgow, Scotland. I went to primary and part of secondary school there. Growing up we also lived in Spain, Germany, and Jersey in the Channel Islands. From a young age I was quite worldly. Growing up in the era of American TV shows like Dallas, Dynasty, Knotts Landing, etc. America seemed like a glamorous playground of the rich and famous. At the time, the original Beverly Hills 90210 aired on British TV and I watched the show for the first time. I was mesmerized that people actually lived in a place called Beverly Hills. All that sunshine and palm trees. I had just started at Offshore Trust Bank in Jersey and was all set for a career in banking, but honestly, I was bored stiff.  Next thing – a friend of the family offered me a PA position in her Los Angeles office…

ICE-CREAM IS A THING!

Image
Just one Cornetto, give it to me…!
So, yes… this summer ice cream is a thing! I know I know, every summer ice-cream is a thing. But this year, there are more and more parlours opening up in and around LA with flavors that you could never have imagined…until now. So I thought it only fair (and in the name of research, of course) that I go and visit a few of them for you.
Salt & Straw. This place looks to be LA’s hottest ice cream destination right now, if instagram is anything to go by. Located at 829 E 3rd St in Los Angeles with a sister location at 1357 Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice. They have an array of unusual flavors from “Black Olive Brittle” to “Toasted Strawberry”; however my favorite here was just the plain ol’ vanilla. Definitely worth checking out!Carmela Ice Cream, 7920 W 3rd St, Los Angeles. These great purveyors of icy deliciousness are kind enough to sell their wares at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market on Sundays, so I’m able to stock up without traveling too far. My favor…

Summer's here and the time is right!

Summer is turning up the heat – get out there and enjoy it!July 8, 2017 6:44 am· Summer is officially here, I hope you had a wonderful July 4th celebration. Although the loss of the American colonies was not a great thing for the British empire in the short term, for those of us who live here I think it’s turned out rather well, don’t you? Family fun: with my niece at Universal Studios There were a zillion fabulous displays all over the city this week, and I for one was amazed to see the coverage from one of the local news helicopters which revealed the entire city, from East LA to the Marina, getting lit up like the proverbial Christmas tree. According to my British friends, the gridlock on the Westside to get near the fabulous display at the Marina was horrendous, so the smart money was on finding a friend with a good view and enjoying the display from their balcony. Another famously wonderful spot to see the fireworks is the Hollywood Bowl. This year I was lucky enough to get last …

Meet a Member: Marc SallisJuly 8, 2017 9:43 am·
Meet Marc Sallis from the Isle of Wight (via Essex and London) who moved to LA five years ago to pursue music and the arts. Was there a particular reason you chose LA? From the very first time I visited Los Angeles on tour I felt at home here. I’d lived in London for over 12 years before moving to LA, so when I was on tour with my band The Duke Spirit we couldn’t wait to get to LA and the sunshine. Even though when we’d pass through New York it felt like a slice of home and being back in London for a few days, when we’d hit Los Angeles it felt like I could stay forever. This city has everything I love about London and the Isle of Wight, where I grew up from the age of eight-years-old. It can have the urban hustle and bustle of London when you want it in downtown and Hollywood, but it also has all this greenery, like Griffith Park, the mountains, and the beach, which remind me of the best things about growing up on the Isle of Wight. So when…

Don't Know What To do For July 4th?

Meet A Member - Melanie Escombe

Image
Meet Melanie Escombe from Wimbledon, who moved to LA four years ago, after a ten year layover in Mullumbimby, Australia, to pursue a career in concert photography.



Was there a particular reason you chose LA ? The town I was living in in Australia was beautiful, but very small, essentially just two streets, and a beach at the end of the road. If I wanted to go to a big concert, museum, international art exhibit etc it was a 200 KM drive to the nearest city, Brisbane. My options were fairly limited work wise too. I’d set my heart on becoming a concert photographer, and with just two small pubs in town, and the big acts only coming to Brisbane once a month, I wasn’t likely to develop an impressive portfolio any time soon, but here in LA it’s a completely different story. There is so much happening here every night, from shooting classic rockers like Slash, and Billy Idol on Sunset Strip, to music superstars like Tom Petty at the Forum, I’m spoiled for choice when it comes to shows. There i…
