I love this round-up of oatmeal done 9 ways from A Beautiful Mess. Although, they’re not the healthiest ways to make oatmeal (I’d use steel cut oats and skip the egg, milk & butter) but it’s still a great starting point!

I love these “Geometry is fun” necklaces by Depeapa. Check out more of her great work on her website.

At first listen I wasn’t feeling Rustie (real name Russell Whyte). But after listening to him more – not by choice, B played a role here – I really started to come around. He’s a producer from Glasgow. I’d recommend checking out his Soundcloud page for his BBC Essential Mix. Take a listen. Let me know what you think.
I love Sundays. I get most of my errands done on Saturday, so Sunday is my chill day. The only two things I need are the NYTs and a yummy breakfast. This Baked Egg Boat recipe would definitely do the trick!

Happy Friday! Diplo’s Bird is the Word should get you into the weekend spirit. Hope you have a great one!
I love these Spring Chairs desigend by Anthony Marschak from Modern Bamboo. He began working with bamboo in 1999 when trying to find a new, flexible material for skateboard decks. Now he makes rad furniture.

I’ve been meaning to share with you the two great restaurants we ate at while in L.A. last week — the Lazy Ox Canteen and Natas Pastries.
The Lazy Ox (241 S. San Pedro Street) is located in the Little Tokyo neighborhood. I went for lunch, with three other people, and we all absolutely loved our dishes. When we came in, they encouraged us to share the plates but we all had something specific in mind so we ignored them and ordered individually instead. This meant the dishes came out a bit staggared, rather than all at once, but it worked out just fine. I had their veggie burger and it was easily one of the best I’ve ever had. The veggetables were high quality, as was the bun, and extrmely well marinated. I’d order it again in a second! The restaurants decor was also to my liking – low lighting, lots of wood and a very relaxed atmosphere.

Natas Pastries (13317 Ventura Blvd) is in the Studio City neighborhood of Sherman Oaks. We actually discovered it by accident – I needed to use the restroom so I went in planning to buy a cup of coffee to gain access. Well, that all changed the moment I laid eyes on their elaborate and drool-inducing pastry display. (Check out their online sweets gallery and you’ll get an idea of what I’m talking about.) I ended up ordering us each an eclair. I’m normally not a fan of eclairs, so I’m not sure why I chose them but I’m so glad I did! They were huge and absolutely delicious – like no pastry I’ve ever had before. I seriously cannot recommend them highly enough. If you’re an eclair fan and in L.A. you must try them. Even if you’re not a fan, I bet these will change your stance — they’re that good.
