I love food. I mean, I really love food. Good food. This is no puppy dog love relationship: it is a border line obsession.

LA Pollution: It may not go away any time soon!
By: Linsley Oaks, LuxEco Living Editorial Assistant
Los Angeles: home smog contamination, congested freeways, smog, and long commutes. “No body walks in LA” as that famous pop song of the 80’s astutely observes. And for the most part, they are right: no body does walk in LA. Which is creating more and more pollution in LA. Even the most casual observer covering ground in this megalopolis will take note of how few pedestrians there are. It is a car culture; people sometimes cover 40 + miles in a day just to get to work and back.

Dietary restrictions and preferences have a big impact on your overall experience when dining out of the home. Getting your dietary needs met can make or break any experience. More and more friends and […]
It’s a question as old as campfire, and the answer is getting more and more difficult to produce: “Hey Ma (or Pa), What’s for dinner?”. The realities of mass food production in this modern age are out there, and perhaps the harshest light of all has been shed on the meat production industry in particular.
by Linsley Oaks, LuxEco Editorial Assistant Green is in and it is here to stay. Eco-friendly products have blossomed on the fashion scene and are growing in popularity and diversity every day.

I spent four years outside of Montreal attending a small University under a work visa, and one year in Vancouver under a work visa. For a long time, I wanted to immigrate to Canada, but without a […]
By: Linsley Oaks, LuxEco Living Editorial Assistant My Nana is very important to me, and with good reason. She has taught me so many valuable lessons with great purpose and honor. One of the greatest lessons she taught me, however, is one which she had no intention of teaching me and likely is not even […]
By: Linsley Oaks, LuxEco Living Editorial Assistant I have a friend who knits. A lot. She is better than any machine. She gets consignment work frequently as well as knitting gift items for her friends and family. Her knitting work is very artistic and her designs carry a deep meaning I am always fascinated to […]
By: Linsley Oaks, LuxEco Living Editorial Assistant Propaganda can do good when properly executed. I vividly remember a cartoon aired on Sesame Street circa 1985. It was a spit screen of a little boy washing his hands and brushing his teeth on one side with a fish in a pond on the other. As the […]
By: Linsley Oaks, LuxEco Living Editorial Assistant Modern Western man (and woman) has evolved into a very private creature. We no longer roam large territories in herds; instead we are isolated in our ‘little boxes on the hillside’, leaving them in our 4 wheeled single occupancy pods and going to our respected segregated cubicles, only […]
By: Linsley Oaks, LuxEco Living Editorial Assistant Running across a field might seem like the last thing anyone should do after slinging $12 dixie cups of liquor to festival goers for 12 hours, but hey- its Coachella! Like escaped zoo animals, my fellow bartenders and I made haste to catch dangermau5’s set at the end […]
By: Linsley Oaks Green is the new pink, black, and red. And I am not talking about runway spring fashions. I’m talking ecological wisdom and awareness. Green has permeated every sector of our society: there is green legislation, green architecture, green landscaping, green products, green tourism, green tax credits, and many more. One strong vein […]
