Links We Love #LWL | Volume 1

Here in the ‘nest’ we spend a lot of time on our computers. You could say almost obsessively. But it comes with the job and we're always interested and eager to stay on top of what’s happening now—in California and beyond. That being said, we like to press pause to check in on things that aren’t necessarily work-related or have anything to do whatsoever with the current political climate. From culinary documentaries that have our mouths watering to a hilarious interview with Lena Dunham, here are six links to help you blissfully retreat—if only for a moment. Enjoy our first volume of #LWL.


The Birds


1: Kate Cadbury creates works of art out of pressed flowers, even more impressive she grows her supplies (flowers that is) in her backyard in England. We’re dreaming about these little creations.

2: This five part documentary series showcases the faces and skilled hands behind both the gourmet and casual plates of Los Angeles’ culinary scene. The series focuses on a handful of Middle Eastern, Mexican, Guatemalan, Filipino and Korean cooks who are first or second generation immigrants making a name for their culture’s food in a unique way and style.

3: Few things get us more stoked than hearing about women kicking ass in their career and Daniella Zalcman, a documentary photographer, is one of those women. This piece from Wired gives us a look into the world of women in photojournalism.

4: Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham host Still Processing, a New York Times pop culture podcast that has our head bird and president, Peyton wishing everyday was Thursday. The duo chats about how race and culture intertwine with current events in today’s crazy world.

5: Our love for Lena Dunham has come to an all-time high after watching this video. She gives a tour of her eclectic home as she answers some of Vogue’s most pressing questions. She also makes us laugh at the same time – classic Lena.

6: Once again, National Geographic takes us around the world. This time they interviewed a variety of nine-year-olds from four different continents to get their varying views on gender, their futures and what they would do to change the world.
