WEST HOLLYWOOD—Designer Jenni Kayne and master crafter Amy Blessing are leading a lovely workshop tomorrow from 11am-1pm at the Jenni Kayne store (614 N Almont Drive), where you'll learn to create a sage and lavender smudge bundle. The workshop is inspired by the spring 2016 catalogue, set in Topanga (arguably the smudge bundle epicenter of LA). You can purchase tickets here for $40.
SILVER LAKE—Step outside the (crayon) box and bring a bunch of friends to LA County Store (4333 Sunset Boulevard) for an adult coloring party on Thursday from 6-8pm. Led by neighborhood coloring book artist Kim Flodin, you'll be able to color Kim's books, containing basic and complex designs with sample pages to work on and plenty of supplies. Kim also happens to be an intuitive energy healer, so the event promises to be relaxing and a great stress reliever. Tickets are available here for $10.
SANTA MONICA—High-end denim destination Diesel (1340 Santa Monica Boulevard) has partnered with The Coveteur and Karrueche Tran, and on Thursday from 6-9pm Tran will be in-store and offering sage style advice and a meet-and-greet. As if that isn't enough, guests can expect cocktails, music, and a special gift. Feel free to stop by anytime, no RSVP required.
