MCM Crush: This eye-popping 1961 gem built by architect David Hyun, located in Los Angeles.
“Mustard yellows, greens and oranges set the tone, and each additional pop of color matches perfectly. Every piece in the house is secondhand — nearly all bought at Southern California flea markets and swap meets. Vintage magazines rest on the tables and abstract-shaped mirrors adorn the walls. An old record player sits in the lounge next to dice-shaped ottomans and sunken chairs. Lava lamps, geometric shapes, and Hollywood memorabilia are constant surprises around each corner. It’s a bright one story “L” shaped home, with a pool glistening right outside the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. A cabana is quietly tucked away in the corner, large-leafed green plants grow high and cast shadows. Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry, and The Mamas and Papas ring loud through the home’s speaker system. This house is rare, stylish…. Inspiring.” – http://blog.freepeople.com/2015/06/peek-vintage-dream-home/?crlt.pid=camp.Yl1We48SpuW0

We have a thing for collecting vintage lunch boxes from the 60’s and 70’s, which in the last decade have become hot collectibles! Here are a few of our faves…
Who doesn’t love the original Planet of the Apes movies from the 60’s and 70’s?
Sure, everybody had a Star Wars lunch box, but the campier TV copycat Battlestar Galactica is much harder to find!
Does anyone remember this obscure TV series which only lasted two seasons on ABC? Produced by Irwin Allen, Land of the Giants has since become a cult favorite!
1960’s Lost in Space started out as a smart Sci Fi series about a space age Family Robinson. It quickly devolved into a campy, kitschy show revolving around the very gay Dr. Smith and Robot. Still, it remains a childhood favorite for many.
The original “Girl Power” epitomized by smart Sabrina, beautiful Kelly, and sexy Kris as Charlie’s Angels, one of the most popular TV shows of the 70’s. By the time this lunch box arrived on shelves, superstar Farrah Fawcett had left for her film career, and replaced by Cheryl Ladd.

Well brethren, we’ve made it through the Holidays. The last of the Christmas cookies have been gobbled up. No more left over turkey and dressing. The New Year’s Eve hangover has subsided. How’d you do? Did you over indulge? Take it easier this year? Maybe somewhere in between a little cheating on your diet and gorging out?
Most of us fall somewhere in between. I know, I know – who wants to be reminded of those oh-so-typical New Year’s resolutions. I’m going to save more money. I’m going to spend more time with family. I’m going to get back to the gym. Sigh. Well, if you had to start with just one, getting yourself into your favorite health club or beginning an exercise regimen is probably the most realistic resolution you can achieve.
We all know the benefits of exercising. It’s good for our health. It improves our mood and lifts our self esteem. It also can be great for social interaction. Who knows, you might just find that dreamy muscle-bear soul-mate in the locker room. We all know exercise good for us, but sometimes it’s so damned hard to get motivated.
Maybe what you need is a fresh workout wardrobe. Sometimes something as simple as a new pair of shoes or a great looking warm up outfit can help you get those feet out the door and into the gym. There are many great new styles of workout clothing available at this time of year. Let’s take a look at some options.
Most major labels have larger sizes for bearish physiques. Nike, Under Armour, Adidas and Puma are some of the more popular brands. Check your favorite websites for selections as they are more likely to stock the larger sizes we like. Let’s review some of the new gym wear trends for 2015.
Under Armour has a great selection of shirts and tanks for working out. If you’re more likely to get your heart rate up in the great outdoors, their Cold Gear line is great, especially if you reside in the chillier climates. They feature a wide selection of fleece hoodies and warm up pants that will keep your buns warm on the snowy running trail. Plus, their website has a nice outlet selection. Check it out at UnderArmour.com. Sizes run up to 3XL.

Want to workout inside? You might just like Nike’s new like of training gear at Nike.com. If you sweat a lot while training like I do, you’ll appreciate their Nike Dri-FIT line of clothing. The fabric used in this line is designed to wick away moisture from your body, making the workout experience more pleasurable. And their designs are really colorful and eye-popping. From long sleeve, short sleeve or sleeveless designs, you’re sure to find a style that fits you.

When it comes to shoes, I really like what Puma is offering this year. They have such an eye for style without sacrificing comfort or performance. Take a look at their new Nightcat line of footwear at Puma.com. The reflective material make these shoes perfect whether your exercising indoors or out. They’re made for running but are perfectly suitable for weightlifting as well.

Whatever it takes to get you off of the couch or out of bed to get back in shape, remember these famous three words from Nike:
Just do it.
