BAKE SOME NOISE 

Let’s face it, Los Angeles is not known for their cookie scene but BAKE SOME NOISE has figured out a way to flip that. These perfectly gooey cookies sell out in just minutes via their website, serving about 1500 cookies in a typical week.

Weighing in at 3 oz, these cookies leave you with just enough desire for one (or five) more. A brick & mortar store is in the works but in the meantime, these handcrafted treats can be found at their pop-up shop happening now in LA’s Chinatown or can be picked up / delivered locally.

Available in three different flavors, they’re perfect for bringing on your next picnic, beach day or just to have as a guilty pleasure at home.


Sipsy

Get a little tipsy with Sipsy this summer! Sipsy is a premier alcohol delivery service in LA that will bring you all your favorite drinks in as little as 30 minutes.

The best part is that their service is always fee-free! They have a huge selection of wine, beer, liquor, seltzers, snacks, and vapes, and all at prices you won’t find on any other platform. They even offer cocktail packs so you can make your own bougie, bar-worthy cocktail at home. No need to leave your pool party or BBQ to replenish your beverages, order with Sipsy and they’ll deliver (even pool-side).

Sipsy is a local, women-owned business in LA with the friendliest staff. We’ll drink to that! They are quickly expanding their service area to get the rest of LA a little Sipsy.


Mori Leaf

Stay hydrated and healthy on hot summer days with Mori Leaf. Female-founded and brewed in small batches, Mori Leaf is the premier moringa iced tea based right here in Los Angeles. 

Moringa, the most nutrient dense superfood you’ve never heard of, is packed with powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Mori Leaf’s organic and sustainably sourced moringa leaves help to naturally increase the body’s energy levels without the jittery caffeine crash. Rich with vitamin C, iron and plant protein, a Mori Leaf iced tea is the perfect beverage to enjoy on a hot summer day, while also giving your immune system an extra boost. 

Try it in several refreshing flavors including Peach, Mint, and Lemon Moringa.


Line in the Sand

Enjoy the sun while staying protected with Line in the Sand’s new approach to swimwear that allows women to embrace action, stay safer in the sun, and take a stand to protect our oceans and fight cancer.

Their SPF 50+ swim leggings and tops are made from premium Italian recycled fabric, constructed from discarded fishing nets and other reclaimed waste.

Made for actual humans by fairly paid humans, Line in the Sand’s waterwear is conceived, designed, and constructed in the USA to ensure quality and fair manufacturing practices. All of their products are offered for the greater good with 100% of profits donated to ocean and cancer organizations.

Ballast Beach Pillow

If you’re planning a trip to the beach this summer, the Ballast Pillow is one product you’re going to want to bring along. 

The Ballast Pillow is the only inflatable pillow built for the beach. It’s light as a feather, but can stand up to the strongest ocean breeze. Its curved contour and soft, padded top provide luxurious comfort – way better than a balled-up towel! The custom designed cooling gel pack is perfect for cooling off on a hot summer day, too. Store the gel pack on ice until it’s nice and cold, and then slip it into the Ballast pillow sleeve, which positions the cold pack along the base of the neck for maximum cooling relief. 

This beach pillow also makes the perfect travel pillow as it deflates into a small, built-in carrying case for easy packing into your beach bag, backpack, or suitcase.


LAPCOS

Sun, chlorine and salt water can wreak havoc on your hair, leaving your strands dry, dull and brittle after too much fun in the sun. 

One of the best ways to protect your hair after the pool or beach is to shower and wash your hair using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner, like the Dr. 14 Vital Care Shampoo from LAPCOS. This nourishing hair and scalp treatment is dermatologist tested and clinically proven to exfoliate, cleanse, moisturize, volumize, smooth, and thicken hair.

Formulated without 14 toxic ingredients commonly found in hair care products, such as parabens and silicone, LAPCOS’ Dr. 14 instead contains 14 active ingredients that provide essential nutrition to the scalp, the foundation of beautiful, healthy hair. The Biotin-enriched formula is scientifically proven to thicken and stimulate hair growth — perfect for giving sun-soaked hair a little extra TLC. 

Plus, Dr. 14 uses no artificial fragrances, making it perfect for even the most sensitive skin types.


Pescavore

For the perfect, healthy summer snack look no further than Pescavore’s Ahi Tuna Jerky Strips.

Locally caught and landed in San Pedro, Pescavore starts with the highest quality, responsibly-caught Ahi Tuna to make their handcrafted jerky. Using premium marinades and whole cuts, they then apply the age-old tradition of natural wood smoking. Pescavore’s small batch process creates a delicious tuna jerky full of flavor, texture, protein and nutrients with less residual salt and sugar than traditional jerky.
Available in three artisanal flavors: Caribbean Jerk, Smokey Pokey and Island Teriyaki, these keto and paleo-friendly snacks are perfect on their own or a tantalizing addition to your favorite recipe (find ideas on the website).

Catch these unique snacks at select 7-Eleven stores in Southern California or hook a 3-pack sampler at pescavoreseafood.com.

Le Grand Courtâge

Nothing says summer quite like a bottle of French rosé or chilled bubbles shared with friends.

Fueled by a passion for wine and travel, American Tawnya Falkner gave up her real estate development career, took the leap and moved to France to create aspirational wines which offer the feeling of luxury at an exceptional value.

Le Grand Courtâge is “the great courtship” between old and new world styles, and is about meaningful connection and laughter shared. The wines are crisp, light and refreshing with baby bubbles and a hint of fruit and floral on the finish.

Très Chic Rosé is a sip of Southern France, an escape to the lavender fields, coastal vineyards and Mediterranean beaches. It is a state of mind which is youthful, fresh and avant-garde.

These luxurious sparkling wines were created to embody the French spirit of ‘joie de vivre’ and remind people to both elevate and celebrate the everyday, and live joyously.

Fun and versatile summer pairings include: BBQ, fried chicken, deviled eggs, savory hors d’oeuvres or shellfish.  Of course, a fresh baguette and a cheese platter are always a great match!
