David Beckham & His Underwear Are Taking Over The Sunset Strip + #Covered or #Uncovered?

00

In Los Angeles we do not have much seasons, I mostly notice the changes according to the campaigns on Sunset Boulevard ... I just look up and if I see David Beckham oversized bulge, then I know it's time to snap a few pictures for you :-P Getting ready for the superbowl here are the images from the bodywear campaign ... cannot wait to see the video ...

Also H&M released a little teaser asking people to vote for a #covered or #uncovered version of the commercial they want to see during the Super Bowl. Starting January 27, fans can make their voice heard by using #covered or #uncovered ...

+ Vote For Beckham

I mean people voting for the #covered version should not be allowed to vote in the first place if you ask me. But the all thing is just a cute marketing move because we all know that we will enjoy both versions sooner or later.

Have a look at the full campaign here.

People are talking about how scandalous it is to use photoshop for women, but damn, look at David ... it's like a cartoon! He is painted/hairbrushed from head to toe like a superhero comic book.

It's November And It Feels So Good

Screen Shot 2013-11-03 at 1.00.15 PM

Life in Southern California is pretty much the best ... I mean you don't leave Paris to downgrade right? To say that Los Angeles is a never ending summer would not be accurate. It is more like a never ending spring ... it is not always as hot as you may think, it gets a lot of fog (more than you may think) it's not very often overcast with big white fluffy clouds (which is something I do miss from time to time) and we get very little rain, that part is true, but when it rains ... it's pretty much 'brace yourself' (and whatever you do on a rainny day don't take the freeway ... people here do not know how to drive safely in any weather, the rain only enhance the incapacity of LA drivers :P

Now that we have clarified a little bit of our SoCal climate urban legends let me tell you that it is NICE to be able on the first week of November to hit the beach with a 30°c (I am sorry to say that after 5 years in the US I am still not feeling the Fahrenheit, it just do not speak to me, and I think it never will) in fact the first thing I did when we bought a new car a couple of weeks ago was to change Fahrenheits in Celcius lol.

On another note the first week of november also means that Halloween is over !!! YAY. I was over pumpkins everything and the smell of cynamon even before it started ... I think that it is great that cynamon smell is often associated with halloween because I hate cynamon and it goes nicely with the spirit of the season.

So on Halloween day we just had a nice day avoiding bad traffic caused by the closure of Santa Monica boulevard and here is my favorite costume we have seen that day:

"Dog Walker on a Hot L.A. day"

Now let's go back to the beach ... while people were in post-halloween recovery mode, I have decided to spend the day at the beach with a friend. Empty beaches with surfers and a couple of joggers is the best thing in the world.

Nature and fitness, who does not like that?

I do not surf but watching the surfers is sooo amazing. Where I am from in the South of France we do have a lot of people surfing on the Atlantic Ocean all the way between Bordeaux and the Spain border but I never really took the time to just go and enjoy it.

Riding the waves with a bike ... that I have never seen before but why not ;-) The weather is cooling down and I do enjoy it also very much, I had my days of pool and beach for this year and even did over time I think, we may have some rain in the near future and I am looking for that very much.

Fireplace, a hot drink, a book, some good tv ... winter is also a good time in Socal.

Deal Du Jour: This Sunset Plaza Home Can Be Yours For $28,800,000

01

Real Estate can be just as hot as a hot guy or girl ... it can be love at first sight, some places can give you this cold attitude saying I am too good for you and you just want to run the other way, sometines you just see the potential that other people do not see and you end up making the best story ever. Some people, so poor, that all they have is money will keep on spending without creating a connection leaving their other-estate-half empty of their presence and emotions most of the time (that would be the real-estate-story of LA) of course a home is just material but it is also a place where you create and experience all sorts of emotions, pain, joy, hate, hanger, bliss, doubt, happiness ...

My rule is always not to be attached to any material things but it does not mean that I do not like beautiful or comfortable things. I just don't try to make a big deal out of it.

That being said one of the things that passionate me in Los Angeles (among many other things such as social behavior of the angelinos) is real estate. As I have said before sometimes I do feel like this city is so poor that all its have is money making things unafordable but at the same time and irronically totally reachable.

Some people think that you need to put things out there to reach them, that is not really my phylosophy as I believe that things come to you when you are ready and not when you wish for them. Am I ready for a $28,800,000 home? Hell yes I am ;-)

Located on Sunset Plaza just behind one of the restaurants where Alek and I go at least once a week for lunch (convenient) this 8 beds  8.5 bath with infinity pool and Guest House can be yours or ours for a little under $30 million. Remember, money has no value :/

"California modern allure draped in sophistication and delight, while conveying an unmistakable sense of strength, volume and boldness."

This modern estate was designed by Belzberg architects, the only thing I would complain about would be the lack of view, yeah you kinda see some of the top trees and the city lights from the second floor but for that price I am talking bird's eye view with infinity pool.

But some people don't mind the limited views and do not like driving up those awful streets above the Plaza (I am one of them) I am more a Doheny drive kind of guy, smooth all the way up. it could be the most amazing house but if you give me a street with pot holes all over and electric clables making you feel like you are lost in some underdeveloped country and I am out of here.

So yes if I had to spend $30 million cash (you don't want to take a morgage on that ...) this house will be a strong contender ;-)
