In Los Angeles, the chic waterfront Marina del Rey Hotel or the hip new boutique hotel, The Kinney Venice Beach are just a few of the possibilities on the Westside. Continuing south, the new Hotel Hermosa sets guests in the heart of surf-centric Hermosa Beach. While visiting San Diego, guests can revel in panoramic views of the Pacific and the famously laid back atmosphere at the Blue Sea Beach Hotel or La Jolla Cove Suites.

Lifestyle, Beauty, & Fashion Deals:

UKYS Kickstarter - UKYS, a well-seasoned international custom-tailoring company, has launched an app that will forever change the way men buy tailored shirts. UKYS app makes it simple and free to take measurements from home using only an iPhone or iPad camera. It only takes a few minutes for clients to complete the five-step guided measurement process; the app uploads all of the information into the UKYS system and their LIM (Less Is More) Technology converts the data into a remarkably accurate 3D model from which the client's body measurements are taken, thus saving time and money that would have otherwise been spent on visiting a tailor. There's even a built-in face censoring function to assuage any privacy concerns. The final product is a luxury bespoke dress shirt delivered directly to the client's doorstep.
