Ernest E. Debs Regional Park

In case anyone else is trying to find a nice place for a family hike, we recently trekked over to the Ernest E. Debs Regional Park in Los Angeles (off the 110 fwy)

The scenery was lovely and the weather was beautiful, I think this is a wonderful place for an easy hike with a few steep inclines sprinkled around here and there. Overall we walked through the trails within two hours and left with some gorgeous photos. Onto exploring other terrains next week!

An Ode to Kahoko Handmade Rugs

I can't seem to stop checking their instagram and looking at their website, maybe it's an odd addiction or maybe an unhealthy obsession but ...

Their rugs are so amazing!

I cannot remember how I stumbled upon this site but I am glad I did. Ka-hoko, beautiful company that funds natives to create handmade organic rugs in Africa, not only do they look unique and original, but they return some of the profits back to the community to support their artisans in continuing their craft.

I believe the society's focus on pushing digital and technological advancements has driven the art trend to lean towards a slick, futuristic, sleek, chic design. Finding companies that are dedicated to bringing some cultural essence and modern traditionalism back to our generation is a greatly appreciated and valued. 

I hope to some day have enough of the funds to buy one of these gorgeous creations but until then all I can do is share them on my little itsy bitsy blog. =)
