ICONIC VIEW OF RICHARD PHILLIPS

 I first heard about American artist Richard Phillips and his body of work when I was designing  a line for hit CW tv show "GOSSIP GIRL" in Australia. His work captured on new medium and pop-cultures icons of the time. Lindsay Lohan was a muse as well a crew of young hollywood. But one of his most famous works was the "Spectrum" piece featured in Lily Bass's penthouse on the Show.  Check above on my favorite pieces by Phillips.

HOLLYWOOD WORKOUT AT BASECAMP FITNESS

Looking for a change to my gym routine, I tried BASECAMP FITNESS in West Hollywood tonight. Its like Cross-Fit but less intense and cult like. How it works is your set yourself a a short term goal and in a a duration of a quick 35 mins, you can achieve it quick. You do one minute of cycling then either barbell or TRX cable work. Your trainer is motivational and knows how to support you when you need it. I did arms and shoulders in tonights class and felt like a proper workout.  Walking in, i did feel over dressed and fabulous like "Dorothy and Blanche" but leaving, I felt quite euphoric.
