There is still a chill here in Los Angeles and no better way to spend the evenings than cuddled up in my candlelit living room sipping on tea.  Kobo candles are an orGLAMic way to go.  Made with domestically grown soy wax (rather than petroleum) and lead-free cotton wicks these candles are both beautiful and good for the environment.  There are so many orGLAMic scents to choose from and beautifully designed tins to boot.  Some of my favorites include Fig Verde, Portuguese Olive Blossom, Sparkling Rose and Mango Tree, pictured above.  Click here to go to Kobo’s official website.

Heather Heron offers striking purses and totes that are made out of organic hemp (although the line does include leather…) and handcrafted by artisans right here in Los Angeles. My favorite from the Fall 2008 collection is the Aspen, which comes in dark chocolate with black piping and details. The refined, muted look is perfect for fall and large enough to carry as days worth of stuff in there (what is all the stuff that collects in my purse, and why is it necessary?!)

Since over half of orGLAMic readers are based in the LA area, I’m going local for this post and telling you about a fabulous restaurant that I ate at earlier this week.  Akasha opened this past Valentine’s Day smack dab in the middle of Culver City’s booming restaurant district.  The menu will satisfy everyone from vegans to carnivores, providing tons of comfort food along the way.

Sustainability is the key element in Akasha’s kitchen, which sources from small family farms, organic growers, sustainable and fair trade companies, and artisan food makers.  I loved that even the waitstaff wear organic uniforms consisting of Levi’s Eco Jeans (which you heard about here on orGLAMic last month!), organic T’s and aprons made of hemp and recycled polyester.  Make a reservation to indulge in the shittake, roasted squash and basil pizza, a glass of organic wine, and the bakery cookie plate which comes with a shot of organic milk, by clicking here.
