Running a jewelry biz doesn't leave Cynthia Horrigan a ton of time for extracurriculars. Even so, the Los Angeles-based designer behind the delicate, elegant line Ochre Objects prioritizes one of her lifelong hobbies: mixing up her mother's hard-earned recipes - especially come winter. "My mom has a real thing for holiday cookies," Cynthia says. "She's been collecting recipes for them for almost 40 years, trying out a new one every year." And with all that research, it's no surprise Cynthia's top cookie, shortbread's almond-flavored cousin, is a real winner. "These are one of the first things I learned to bake," Cynthia says. "They are really simple - only six ingredients! - but are so delicious." Yah, our mouths are watering, too. READ MORE

Miki Nora Christopherson first came to Florence - the city where she now lives and creates her liquid-looking metal jewelry - by chance. Looking for a place to study art history abroad without speaking the language, Miki discovered a program in Tuscany's capital and promptly signed up. After meeting her husband there years later while visiting friends from that very same study abroad program and feeling "as though I was living in a novel," she figured it was about time to put down roots. And while we can't promise you an Italian romance, we can count on Miki to deliver a bang-up tour of her town. READ MORE

The story of one of L.A.'s most creative and #goalsworthy couples started as many things did in 2007 - on Myspace. At the time, Lindsey Mortensen was living in New York and working in fashion design when she got a personal Myspace invite from L.A.-based musician Hrishikesh Hirway,to see his band perform in the city. A few weeks later, Hrishikesh convinced Lindsey to move out west with him; six weeks after their first date, he proposed. "It sounds crazy, but yes," Lindsey says. "And now we've been together for 10 years!" And making' a marriage work isn't all they've been up to in that time - Lindsey launched Larsen and Lund, a line of buttery, grown-up leather bags, and Hrishikesh is the brains behind the popular podcast Song Exploder. They also both work out of their home in Los Angeles' Eagle Rock neighborhood, so we asked Lindsey to share what keeps them happy and hard at work 'round the clock. READ MORE

As a resident of New York's Upper West Side, Ariana Boussard-Reifel is pretty museum rich. "I'm within walking distance to dozens of world-class institutions," says the jewelry collector-turned-designer. She knows her way around the best in the area - big and small - and, despite her spoils, is even willing to borough-hop to get her fix (especially when promised a good tequila drink). READ MORE

This Is Going to Make You Care About Numerology

Stuff We Love BY aleksa brown 05/19/2017
Agnes Baddoo's interest in astrology and numerology - or, as she calls them, "the ologies" - took root long ago. "I've been interested in signs and planets since I was very little, which eventually led me to patterns and randomness and then sacred geometry and numerology," she explains. What's all that mean, exactly? In her day-to-day, Agnes uses numerology as a sort of weather report to keep perspective and find empowerment in all sorts of situations, including when she's putting together a new collection of her cult-favorite, roomy leather totes and satchels. Below, her guide so you can use numbers as your guide, too. READ MORE
