It is heavenly when you see something for $16 or less when shopping on the  hottest boulevard in the US (according to GQ and Forbes) and it’s gotten pricey!  The AKFF Blog checked out  Heavenly Couture and saw some really cute summer shorts, skirts and tops for the amazing price of $16 or less… and they are hiring, so  stop by. (Located at the traffic light by California.)

Where you at Abbot Kinney First Fridays last Friday! Wow, it sizzled with a supa summer crowd. It started early with a good crowd at the new  restaurant, Kreation Organic (former Jin Patisserie location) where we caught up with Juan, the Manager, formerly at Local 1205, who didn’t look like they were open on 1st Fridays.

Around the corner on Westminster, at Get Waxed we saw the Paparrazi Comedy show – yes,really, produced by a local, Gisele with a slew of comedians including funnyman (and tv writer) Dave Shelton.
