We’re back with our NELA Gift guide! Dotter store has dream lion incense (top left) and 29 palms soothing fragrance candles (top right). Prelude & Dawn has its own gift guide including the Rooibos Chai Kit (bottom left) and this Digital Giclée Print (bottom right).
Hard copy books are back in, and ready for you to gift at The Pop Hop on York (bottom left). No Wi-Fi required! If you can’t make it in person or need to ship it to someone, they have a very extensive and full updated website for easy shopping. Pasadena also has The Goldbug which has eclectic jewelry and gifts, like these scientific wall charts (a very trendy thing to put in your kitchen).
Reminder they just moved to 38 E Holly Street in Old Town Pasadena.
And last but not least – of course we had to mention our beloved à bloc: we have to mention the incredibly tasty cookies which you can buy as a Santa’s dozen! Vegan, gluten-free, nut free, and absolutely delicious (bottom right).
You can also grab a gift certificate for that coffee fan (or biker) in your life. One of our favorite things about à bloc is you can also visit the bike shop next door, The Hub, to spiff up your bike and join in on the cyclist community and events. “The Hub is equipped to handle any job on your bicycle. We service suspension, bleed brakes, adjust Di2/eTap, build wheels, custom frame up builds and anything else in-between. Call, email, or schedule an appointment online to get started.”
Show your NELA cycling pride by buying one of their t-shirts in their online merch store or grabbing one for a friend with more
options in person at the store.

6. Sunglasses to block all the shade from the haters
7. Safety and style first

9. Relax and recover”
We can’t recommend everything à bloc enough!

Creating a festive environment
The Holiday season is upon us and there’s nothing better than the indulgence of glowing candlelight, twinkling lights and delectable scents wafting through one’s home.
A favorite way to create a cozy and welcoming vibe in any household is by simmering homemade stovetop potpourri. This simple recipe will have your home smelling like Holiday festivities in no-time!
- (1) Orange sliced
- Handful of fresh or frozen cranberries
- (2) Cinnamon sticks
- Sprigs of rosemary
Place ingredients in a saucepan with water and bring to a simmer. Continue to replenish the water when it gets low. Feel free to add other aromatics to the pot such as star anise, cloves, and cardamom!
Natural elements and sustainable décor are beautiful and eco conscientious
We love incorporating branches, fruits, and herbs into our festive table settings. Add a sprig of rosemary to your napkins and pick up some discarded pine branches from your local tree lot. Let your imagination run wild and have fun with your centerpiece!
Beautiful, sustainable and made in L.A. These beeswax taper candles from Wild Root are a gorgeous addition to any table setting!
Griffith Park: Holiday Light Festival Train Ride
This a fun family friendly activity, and a great excuse to bring a thermos of hot cocoa to enjoy afterwards.
Running until January 6th
Descanso Gardens: Enchanted Forest of Light
Descanso Gardens creates a magical light display that gives a new perspective to the extensive gardens.
Light’s displayed until January 9th
Reserve your tickets online:
Wishing everyone a memorable Holiday season full of love, laughter, and merriment!

– LOVE WORDS –
We love our clients and they love us….
❝Deirdre and her team made the entire process of selling my property easy. They were always just a phone call or email away when I had a question and believe me I had lots of questions. My property was very unique and required an agent who understood how to properly market it and Deirdre and her team at the L34 Group was the best agency for the job. They went above and beyond my expectations and even succeeded in getting us over our asking price. If you’re looking for an agency that understands the market (especially NELA), knows how to get the best results and always puts her clients first, then Deirdre Salomone and her team at the L34 Group is the one for you.❞
