For our first “Things We Love” blog in 2010 we had a difficult time choosing just three to highlight! This year is full of exciting new products, trends and venues. Here, just a few to whet the palate:
W Hollywood Hotel
This gigantic new luxury hotel and condominium complex in the heart of Hollywood has been long awaited and JUST opened up less than a week ago. Located at Hollywood and Vine, the new W Hollywood brings another touch of modern luxury to LA. With over 300 plush guest rooms, three gourmet restaurants and 25,000 square feet of state-of-the-art event space, the W Hollywood is an absolute treasure.

The incredibly portable and eco-friendly boutique line of Pocketflops was designed by owner of FlocDesigns and SCE’s close personal friend, Maria Pantazes. These flip-flop style sandals fold in half for easy storage, transportation and use. Soft cloth straps and a thin yet very durable base make these ideal for pedicures, nights on the town, after sporting activities, or just everyday use. Pocket-flops come in a variety of designs for individualized, responsible expression. They are made out of 90% recycled materials and come with a carrying case made from 100% organic cotton.

If you can believe it, Apple has done it again with their new, revolutionary electronic device, the iPad. Halfway between an iPod and an iMac computer, the iPad features a high-resolution, 9.7-inch LED-backlit display, making it perfect for, well, just about everything. It’s new IPS (in-plane switching) display technology allows the device a wide, 178° viewing angle. So you can hold it almost any way you want and still get a brilliant picture, with excellent color and contrast. At 1.5 lbs in weight and ½ an inch thick it’s smaller than a Kindle and more powerful than any device its size to date.
Absolutely Awesome. For more information, see http://www.apple.com/ipad/
