Keep or Toss? Decluttering Rules to Live By

July 29, 2015 9:00 am

You’re not exactly a pack rat, but you definitely have more than a few items in the back of your closet that you haven’t looked at in a few years. Most people would say that their homes could benefit from a bit of de-cluttering, and these helpful tips will show you just how to do it.

  • Keep papers within reach. By keeping papers within eyesight, you’ll be more likely to deal with your paper mess before it accumulates into something much more difficult to manage.
  • Ask a few questions. When you’re going through the items in your home, ask yourself questions like: Have I used this in the past year? Does this benefit my life? Is it broken? If, so can I fix it? If you say no to most of these questions, put it in the donation pile.
  • Create a donation pile. Speaking of that donation pile, start one! You’ll feel a lot less guilty about getting rid of your unused items if you know they’re going to someone who will really appreciate them.
  • Clear off surfaces. After you clean out hidden spaces like closets and under the bed, make a rule that you’ll always keep surfaces like counters and desks free of clutter. Not only will your home feel more organized, this will ensure that it looks more organized, as well.

Planet Dailies: Farm-to-Table Fare and Cocktails Fit for Celebrities

July 22, 2015 9:00 am

Snooki, Mario Lopez, and Rod Stewart all have something in common (other than their hefty paychecks): they've all eaten at Planet Dailies.

After all, the Los Angeles eatery sits just a stone's throw from Hollywood, and it stays on the cutting edge of culinary trends by sourcing all of its fresh ingredients from California farms. And yet, the menu pulls together a spate of international influences. Spicy Thai chicken pizza, ceviche pico del mar, and Mongolian beef all make an appearance on the menu, in addition to American cuisine—and some specifically Californian eats, like barbecue ribs and Cali burgers topped with avocado, California cheddar, and California micro greens.

But many of Planet Dailies clientele, celebrity and otherwise, head to its on-site sister bar Mixology 101. There, you can imbibe the creative cocktails of master mixologist Salvatore Calabrese. The huge cocktail list encompasses everything from martinis and margaritas to sangria.
