Bahama Voyage

Society babe, Lex Weinstein, and fellow adventurer, Karina Petroni, headed to the Bahamas for an adventurous getaway.
Their journey was filled with surfing, diving, hiking, and exploring.

"Washing off winter courtesy of the Bahamas is like stepping into a dream. Our first stop, Gregory Town, Eleuthera, home of some of the sweetest pineapples I’ve ever tasted and beaches that are nothing short of pristine. We found beautiful waves at both Surfer’s Beach and Holiday Beach via the Glass Window Bridge, a unique collision of the stunning contrast between the rich, dark blues of the churning Atlantic and the serene, aqua hues of the Caribbean. While the news reported blizzards and endless snowfall in the northeast, we spent our days eating spicy, fresh conch salad from roadside food stalls and exploring secret caves and blue hole lagoons. Our accommodation was on nearby Harbour Island, a quintessentially Caribbean locale with brilliant colored beach bungalows, electric turquoise ocean views, pink sand beaches and warm, charismatic locals."

West Coast Beach Guide

Beach Guide

Southern California is known for it's glitz, glamour and grit of LA, but also offers a wide range of amazing beaches up and down the coast. The active culture and colorful lifestyle of SoCal are what draw people in, the beaches keep them here. We might be slightly biased, but this part of the country is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. While the North has it's majestic ocean views and beautiful thick forests, Southern California offers a warmth, vibe and lifestyle that cannot be matched. Let’s start from the top:

LOS ANGELES COUNTY

El Matador is the northern most beach we feel needs to be highlighted. Located in Northern Malibu, it's green mossy rocks and beautiful sandstone are what put this place on the map for photos and epic sights. There are several beautiful rock formations and caves to explore, as well as the occasional tide pool. The clear blue water juxtaposes the cliffs that meet the sand, making El Matador a serene escape. This beach holds a special place in our hearts as it was the location for our first ever Amuse campaign in Spring of 2014!

First Point / Surfrider Beach is known for one of the best waves in Southern California. Surfers, ranging from beginners to locals that have surfed this wave for years, come from all around to take part in the action. Conveniently nestled beside the Malibu pier and the Santa Monica mountains, a weekend at First Point is a must.

ORANGE COUNTY

Laguna is known for it’s gorgeous beaches that you MUST see for yourself. Thousand Steps, Victoria beach, West St. Beach, and Table Rock are just a few of our favorites. Turquoise water, succulent covered cliffs, tide pools, and caves are a few of the things you’ll enjoy when visiting Laguna beaches. This beautiful, quaint town sits sweet and snug on the hilly coast of Orange County; with houses big and small, and colorful restaurants and shops that line the ocean, Laguna is a great place to spend a day.

SAN DIEGO COUNTY

San Diego a gem in Southern California; it's a big city that actually feels more like a small beach town. So much character, so many beautiful spots, and lots of tacos. Sunset Cliffs is a quiet, natural park located in Southern SD. It’s an awesome place to see some the beautiful ocean line and relax. Moving North to La Jolla, the beaches are a bit more touristy…but rightfully so; it’s coves, tall palm trees, insane views, and clear water are paradise for surfers, divers, paddleboarders, and sightseers alike. All the way up the coast through, Del Mar, Encinitas, you can’t go wrong with these beaches. Check out Blacks Beach where we shot our Fall 2015 campaign along the amazing cliffs sitting high above the surf.

(A)muse in Bondi

Our French muse, Michaela Thomsen traveled to Australia for a little getaway with her (super talented) photographer boyfriend, Virgile Texier. Talk about a dream team. Michaela's look has "natural French beauty" written all over it and Virgile sure knows how to capture just that. The couple explored Bondi, hopping from beach to beach, exploring neighborhoods and parks, and shooting film all week. Michaela nonchalantly threw on her favorite Amuse pieces and looked flawless, always inserting her French twist into the Australian landscape. The Aussie sun bronzed her skin and made her light hair and eyes pop against her black and white ensembles. Quintessential Parisian stripes topped off her (already perfect) look. It's pretty safe to say that we're infatuated with this duo!
