Discover Eve Lom

We discovered Eve Lom’s award-winning skin care products at Space NK at Bloomingdale’s South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island. Nicky Kinnaird, the founder of British beauty chain Space NK, hand selects the world’s best beauty products and brings them to you, via Space NK. And now we’re hooked on Eve Lom products including moisturisers, day creams, and one of Space NK’s most popular items, the solid cleanser that comes in a jar. It’s a blend of four aromatherapy oils that melts on to the skin, removes make-up, and its enriching, not drying.

Proof that’s there’s more to coffeehouses than Starbucks and Coffee Bean: Koffee Klatch in Laguna Beach is one of our favorites. Hidden away in South Laguna,  the endearing seaside gem sits right on Pacific Coast Highway and is more relaxing bohemian oasis than your average java joint. Inside the cozy but eclectic coffeeshop, choose from a dizzying array of pastries, desserts, salads,  sandwiches and, oh, coffee too. The outdoor patio is especially relaxing, with comfortable lounge chairs perfect for curling up on with girlfriends for a gabfest or with your laptop (free WIFI, natch) for a few hours. 1440 S. Coast Highway in Laguna Beach. 949.376.6867.
