LA (AND BEYOND): THE BEST SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION AGAIN (AGAIN)

By Nora Zelevansky / October 1st, 2009

So, there are two ways to look at this post:

1) It's particularly lame because it's only referencing a bunch of my articles instead of a specific LINTY find and I'm about to take a week long break while I travel.

OR 2) It's particularly awesome because it references a whole BUNCH of my articles instead of just one LINTY find, which makes sense because I'm about to take a week long break. 

Either way, here are some  of my travel, beauty, wine and design stories that just came out:

DAILY CANDY EDINBURGH (all about my trip to Scotland).

C Magazine's BIODYNAMIC PERSPECTIVE (all about Northern Cali's organically grown wine).

C Magazine's EARTH FIRST (all about LA's preeminent eco-architect).

And, on Blackburn + Sweetzer, read all about my experience with The Mondrian's new Själ Blue Kashmir Saphir spa treatment.

Okay, good.  Lots of reading material for you all.

And now I'm off to Bora Bora.  No.  Seriously.

SCOTLAND (EDINBURGH): THE BEST FIRST FEW HOURS

By Nora Zelevansky / May 12th, 2009

Headache?  What headache? 

Jet lag?  What jet lag?  Break from posting?  What break from posting?

I am only hours in and am already deeply enamored with Edinburgh, which feels like a cross between a Medieval Village and Portland.  I LOVE IT HERE.  And I love my hotel, Hotel du Vin, which supposedly used to be a "lunatic asylum." See, the Scotts even say loony bin better!  It certainly doesn't feel like a former institution.  I'd pretend to be insane to stay in a place like this.  It smells like cedar, contemprary design combined with antiques and, of course, a bit of plaid.

Wish you were here!
