Good Buzz: Juice Served Here
By Roxanna Dunlop 28 Jan 2014 @ 3:54 pm | Categorized: Body & Beauty, Live_Fashion>
My recent cold-pressed addiction began at Juice Served Here, a forward-thinking juice bar in West Hollywood focused on producing raw and organic juices with a unique approach: keep things clean, simple and local. The company founded by Greg Alterman and Alex Matthews occupies a few storefronts in and around Los Angeles, including their commissary in Culver City, where the juices are cold-pressed and delivered to each location bright and early every morning.
Lingerie Guide: Feu de Vénus
By Roxanna Dunlop 17 Jan 2014 @ 11:33 am | Categorized: Lingerie Guide, Live_Sex>
We don’t like to play favorites with our lingerie, but we’re willing to break the rules for this one. A new luxury label created by Montrealer Véronique Lepage, Feu de Vénus draws inspiration from the divine sensuality of the goddess Vénus herself, with a design emphasis on clean lines and sharp angles. We fell in love with the brand a few months back and thought an exclusive editorial shot by Neave Bozorgi would be the proper way to introduce their fashion-forward debut collection.
Babe Talk: Amanda Pizziconi
By Roxanna Dunlop 13 Dec 2013 @ 9:42 am | Categorized: Babes, Live_Sex>
Born and raised in San Francisco, the divine Amanda Pizziconi is so much more than just a pretty face. The five-foot-eleven, wannabe superhero has the body of a goddess but she also bears a winning personality and a big heart to match. Delta Element photographs Miss Pizziconi in her natural state (not too much styling, minimal hair and makeup) looking sexier then ever, and we got to know the brown-eyed beauty a little better in this exclusive interview where she talks about everything from her fears to her turn-ons… enchantée, Amanda.

As you probably already know, here at Live Fast Mag, we are a little bit obsessed with the ocean. One of the most exciting exhibits we caught at Art Basel Miami this week centered around the whale shark, and the few daring ladies willing to dance beneath the sea with them.
Lingerie Guide: Maison Close (NSFW)
By Roxanna Dunlop 03 Dec 2013 @ 11:28 pm | Categorized: Featured, Lingerie Guide, Live_Sex>
We teamed up with the brilliant Neave Bozorgi to bring you our first-ever exclusive lingerie editorial featuring Parisian brand Maison Close. Known for tastefully harnessing fetish vibes by playing with the roles of domination and submission, Maison uses lots of sheer fabrics and cheeky cutouts, leaving little to the imagination. Passionate about their french-style garments, they emphasizes the notion of “love games,” decorating their very detailed and intricate pieces with a playful, laissez-faire approach.
Interview Series: Warren Brand “The Cycle Of Art”
By Gabrielle Lisa Collard 10 Oct 2013 @ 5:36 pm | Categorized: Interview Series, Live_Art>, Street Art
With his latest project, art enthusiast and curator Warren Brand has managed to bring new life to an ordinary urban space while bringing a community together. Surrounding himself with artists, neighbors and kindred spirits, he allowed a whole block of abandoned buildings to blossom into a vibrant, living work of art. As the result of many years of love, art and memories is about to get torn down, he’s working on immortalizing the experience through a documentary, which he hopes to get funded through IndieGogo. We had the chance to chat a little bit with the man behind the Branded Arts Complex, an inclusive and positive project that’s sure to inspire and to soon be reborn.

Photo Of The Week: 15/2/2013
By Live Fast Mag 15 Feb 2013 @ 12:05 pm | Categorized: Live_Art>, Photography
This past week was fairly quiet on the site because we ventured out to Hawaii to cover POW WOW, a gathering of incredible street artists. Well thanks to this amazing denim jacket created by Haight Ashbury Co. in collaboration with NYC illustrator Marilyn Rondon, ”TOTALLY STOKED” became our slogan for the whole entire trip. This particular picture was captured by Laura Austin at this rad little art sanctuary called The Refinery Project on the North Shore, just after we got back from swimming with sharks. Needless to say, we had plenty of reasons to be “TOTALLY STOKED” on this trip.
Submit a great photo with its story for a chance to be featured next week! Email us here!

Art Crush: Sainer
By Abby Wilcox 05 Nov 2012 @ 4:21 pm | Categorized: Art Crush, Live_Art>, Street Art
Polish artist Przemek Blejzyk – a.k.a. Sainer – amazes with his colorful, whimsical figures, which he paints both on canvasses and the streets. There’s a darker edge to his style – you’ll notice that none of his characters look at you – or their faces are hidden in some way, almost as if they are masking their sadness…
Wanderlust: Corey Arnold’s “Graveyard Point”
By Vivianne Lapointe 23 Oct 2012 @ 9:57 pm | Categorized: Live_Travel>, Wanderlust
Out of all the places in the world, Alaska is one I’ve wanted to visit – to breathe in the untamed wilderness, crisp salty air and just exist up in the silence of the mountains, alone for a while. Nature calms the mind like nothing else, doesn’t it? Well… maybe not fot the men at sea.

The Blogger’s Guide To Using Stipple
By Live Fast Mag 20 Aug 2012 @ 12:07 pm | Categorized: Live_Art>, Photography
The Internet can sometimes be a cruel place. As bloggers, photographers, general creative types, we pour our energy into presenting our work to the internet community. But we lose connection to our content as it gets blogged about and reblogged, pinned and re-pinned, tumbled and re-tumbled. Hyper-sharing i.e. virality might be the sincerest form of online flattery, but most people still want their work to be attributed to them – right? And at the same time, consumers are innately curious about the person behind the art and the curators of the Internet try their best to give credit where credit is due. So why does it have to be so difficult?
When we heard about Stipple, a service that offers content creators a way to “tell stories through their images as they travel the web,” it struck a chord. Bloggers and content creators who upload their own images can “claim” them through Stipple so that the attribution info stays with their image and links back to them no matter what site the image ends up on. Let’s use our photo editor Abby as an example as she contribute tons of original content to Live Fast:
