SLS Hotel ....Wins Sexy Logo Award!!

Random things inspire me and since logo's are a part of my business I'm very observant of brands and logos. I brunched with friends this morning at the ultra-chic SLS Hotel in LA and couldn't help but stare at this fabulous chandelier wall molding of the SLS logo. The details stuck with me all day long that I had to google the logo to take a closer look at what was going on with this piece of art. Sexy, dramatic and classy if you take a closer look you'll find all these luxurious little RANDOM things inside the logo that can be found at a hotel, a fork, a cup & a mirror. I think the fact that these things are SO random makes it SO fun!.....Winner for 2011 Sexy logo award!!

Haute swag this week....vintage tee and wayfarer Ray Bans

This week on "'s shop it list" are two of my retro fav's, the vintage tee and risky business Ray Bans. Just looking at the pic makes me think of Tom Cruise back in his dreamy days! Retail on the tee is $20.00 & $130.00 on the shades. I often look at what's hot at retail when suggesting ideas to clients and BOTH of these items would be a must have on my "haute list". When shopping ideas for my clients promotions I try and think about things I would love to receive. In the promotional industry you could walk away with branded generic versions of these. A minimum order on the tees would likely be around $7.00 each and the shades under$3.00.

Long Beach CA bans plastic bags city wide

Long Beach has banned the distribution of plastic bags at grocery stores in the City. The alternative is reuseable bags. Luckily there are tons of stylish and fashionable bag options available and hip eco friendly retailers have been proactively giving these out as promotional products for at least a few years now. Imagine the brand mileage of a bag like this with your logo on it. It is destined to be reused countless times by the end-user AND is helping our environment! Click pic to see the story.
