#outandaboutwithmyelezvir - Michelle

I’ve been a regular at Wundabar studio in Calabasas for over 4 years – honestly, I’ve found nothing like it for developing and maintaining my core strength, so much so that my 15-year-old competitive mountain biking son now joins me once a week!  As well as giving an amazing work out, the teachers at Wundabar are fun, friendly & supportive - & not just about my fitness… My Elzevir bag has gained quite a lot of interest sitting on the bench during many classes over the last year or so.  A few of the Wundabar Team fell in love & now carry their own Elzevir!                        Michelle Zimmer is one....

#outandaboutwithmyelzevir - Nina

When I bumped into Nina this week at Juicy Ladies, one of our favorite healthy haunts, she was carrying her black leather Elzevir. As we sipped Green Juice, she enthused about her bag; "It's so comfortable! I had some aches & pains carrying some of my previous bags but my Elzevir sits so comfortably on my shoulder, I have none of that now."                     A personal trainer & Beatbike devotee, with 2 kids away at college & "momager" to her youngest daughter, who's setting out on an exciting dance career, you can spot  Nina's little Brit-flag painted Mini zipping about town. "And this," Nina said, pulling out the keychain, "it's genius! I never loose...

Our "Nightingale"

The “Nightingale” started singing outside our bedroom window last weekend.      I hadn’t realized how much I missed the birdsong last summer – I don’t know if it was the severe drought SoCal has been trapped in for the last 4 years but the mornings were sadly quieter & in particular we missed our “Nightingale”.  Neither Rhys nor I are great ornithologists so we’re not sure if the first bird to call in the morning & set off the dawn chorus is in fact a Nightingale but his song is beautiful, so that is what we call him & we are very happy to have him back. Thanks to this winter’s rain, the hills, that have been grey & parched,...

Meet Jenny & her much loved Leopard Elzevir Mini

When Jenny came to the launch of my line of bags & accessories at Pedalers Fork, Calabasas, back in November 2016, I knew the Leopard Elzevir Mini would be the bag for her!   Hollywood born & bred, Jenny grew up in and around the Arts and though she doesn’t count herself as “a creative person”, she has a playful personality with her own flair. Always wearing some cute or curious accessory; an over-size flower ring, flip-flops with giant hearts on the front or animal print ballet flats, a pet-able purse was a no-brainer for Jenny!   "It's like my pet kitty! My little companion,” she said stroking her bag.     Jenny & I met when our kids were...
