Near Palisades Park in Santa Monica there is a new installation by artist HOT TEA. Migration, is a beautiful rainbow of yarn. Strands connected to chain-link fences, that take you through the gradient fade of a rainbow. 1,800 strands of different colors, on top of the pedestrian bridge that takes you to the beach. We hope this unauthorized installation isn’t taken down any time soon, as it makes the way to the beach, an even more beautiful sight. We suggest you catch the rainbow while you can!
Just a few steps from The Ace Hotel in DTLA, is So-Cal's Verve Coffee Roasters. Exposed concrete, myrtle-wood, and midcentury lamps adorn this coffee haven. Potted plants, succulents, and South American wood, cover it’s outside patio. Pressed juice, smoothies, fermented drinks and goodies from Cafe Gratitude are served here as well; it’s a collaborative space. Along with coffee, Verve curated products and magazines are also sold here. A coffee experience (and photo op) to be had in Downtown, Los Angeles.
One of the best things to do in Los Angeles is visit Runyon Canyon. It is a little get away from the city. This 130-acre dog park is located in Hollywood on the east end of the Santa Monica Mountains. There are five ways to enter Runyon Canyon and three routes to hike. From the Fuller Gate—Runyon Canyon Road (easy), the Star Trail (medium), and the Hero Trail (difficult). Depending on your route you can you can view the Hollywood sign, the Sunset Strip and the LA Basin from the top. Bring your furry buddy on the off leash trails, plenty of water, and a camera in case you bump into a celebrity.
There are so many beautiful places to explore within the US. From Muir Woods near San Francisco to the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
Some of these places are a simple car drive away or if you are traveling far, then a plane ride away.
We recently went on a road trip to Page Arizona to explore the mini grand canyon, Antelope Canyon.
A 10 hour drive that was somewhat painful and in some places lacked any radio signal, but left us with breath taking views of nature. We took some photos along the way and we took some notes for those who want to visit this beautiful work of nature.
En route to launch a Victory Press pop-up shop at Space 15 Twenty, Jess and Jonathan drove across the country, visiting American factories and getting up close and personal with the country’s great outdoors. Check out the video made with the help of Nathan Caswell of their adventure from Brooklyn, NY to Space15Twenty!

Frankie magazine is a national bi-monthly based in Australia, aimed at women (and men) looking for a magazine that’s as smart, funny, sarcastic, friendly, cute, rude, arty, curious and caring as they are. Frankie magazine covers design, art, photography, fashion, travel, music, craft, interiors and real-life stories.
In Issue 54, you can indulge in meeting all sorts of creative folks from filmmaker Rhys Mitchell, to performer Vachel Spirason, and fashion designer Alexandra Kovac. They discuss what makes them tick, advice (the good and the bad), life mottos and pet peeves.
Another inspiring visionary, Trevor Hawkins brings to life his journey to Rwanda. What started as a business trip to bring money to Africa, ended up being a humbling experience for Trevor. Despite Rwanda's rep for genocide and poverty, the locals seemed happy and full of life. The entire country lives by the motto of 'Never forget'. Check out the video below:

Your backyard may not be as green and lush as those beautiful landscapes in Africa, but Frankie does teach you a little thing or two about eating weeds. Thats right, weeds. Weeds surprisingly have a lot of nutrients and healing properties.
On the topic of gardening, German illustrator, Angela Dalinger, paints imaginary flowers that have made their way to the cover of Issue 54. Most paintings of plants are her own creation, and some are from memory. All of her paintings can be found on her blog.
You can definitely get a sense of Australians' cheeky and witty humor through the small lighthearted articles throughout the magazine like: An Open Letter to My High School Boyfriend, How to Be 20-something, and Let's Be Friends to keep you laughing and entertained throughout the magazine.
Purchase Frankie magazine at our Hennessey + Ingalls store or online.
