GUEST BLOGGER ALERT // Visiting Orange County

Hi there everyone, Happy Friday – it’s Laura again guest blogging!

I’m not sure if you all know, but I am originally from Orange County, Newport Beach to be exact (a whopping 45 minutes south of Los Angeles) but it always feels like a different world down there.

During the summer, I like to visit on the weekends, bike down to the beach and get on the water. I always say it’s like the Hamptons for me now, living and working in LA.

That’s besides the point, but this week I had the pleasure of making the trek to the OC for meetings, which of course is a very different experience but equally enjoyable, especially since I was in the presence of such great company!

I went down to meet with Oakley at their headquarters, which you will see above – definitely didn’t disappoint. I only wish I was able to capture the indoors, it blew me away! Although we’ve worked with Oakley many times, I had never been here. It was great experience, you really get a feel of the brand just walking onto and around their campus.

I also had a fantastic meeting at Quiksilver, and of course loved the vibe there as well. Everyone there was incredibly friendly, people walking in from their “surf breaks” – you just feel an honest excitement for the work they do there and appreciation for the work we do as an agency.

All and all, it was a great visit down and of course, a BIG thank you to the people who made the time to see me and look through all of the work!

Sam Jones TAMMY

Melissa McCarthy is funny and often dark at the same time and this one will hopefully be a big bit at the box office on the always important July 4th weekend and for our clients Warner Bros. Studios.

From IMDB:  ” After losing her job and learning that her husband has been unfaithful, a woman hits the road with her profane, hard-drinking grandmother ”

With Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates too – how can it not be great?
