EDITOR’S LETTER I never truly believed in fate; I usually chalked things up to chance happenings. But over the past few months, I found the phrase, ‘it was meant to be,’ escaping my lips more frequently than it had in my entire life. The first instance of fate was meeting my publisher at the perfect moment in my life, and the decision to come on board was a swift and easy one. This meant leaving my beloved mountain town, which up until a few months ago, I never thought I would do. I was in love with my outdoor playground, spending most snow days on the slopes or skinning into the backcountry. Summers in the remote Rockies were spent hiking to higher elevatations to glacial ponds resting above 12,000 feet. But I embraced the opportunity to move, and embarked on a journey with the only explanation, ‘it’s meant to be.’ The chance to meet Audrina Patdrige also proved to be a defining moment, among others throughout this process, that would help cement my belief in fate. My publisher and I simultaneously realized she was the perfect person to feature in our summer issues. Audrina’s multifaceted talents and drive to succeed have led her to become an oustanding businesswoman, mother, and wife. Even years following her hit show MTV’s The Hills, Audrina’s fanbase remains stedfast with seemingly perpetual glowing comments saturating her Instagram profile of 1.5 million followers. Recalling the whole experience is almost surreal, especailly sitting here now writing this letter a block from the beach… and 23 gorgeous magazines stored on my hard drive. I realize now, that ‘elevated life’ doesn’t always mean climbing to higher elevations, but also living life with purpose, ambition, and trust that some things are just meant to be.

udrina Patridge certainly matured from reality TV time in the limelight, to quintessential globetrotter, entrepreneur, mother and wife. Years after MTV’s, The Hills (2006-2010), VH1’s Audrina (2011), and NBC’s The Look (2013-2016), she’s busy as ever, smarter than ever, and hotter than ever! A newlywed with a seven-month-old baby and a brand new business, Audrina seems to balance her life, success, and family effortlessly. But admits, “It’s a lot harder than it looks! It may seem like I have it all together, but it’s a challenge.” She says the key is staying organized, “Once you have a baby and a job, you can’t be as spontaneous, and have to lead a much more scheduled life.” If that means skipping the last minute weekend getaway, it certainly paid off. Her new swimwear line, Prey Swim, is absolute perfection. Growing up in Southern California, Audrina spent most of her time near the water and always had a passion for swimwear, but could never find the perfect bathing suit. She of course had her staples and seasonal favorites, but there was always something she wanted to change. Fed up with other swimsuit designs and fit, she finally decided to do something about it. “I’m just going to make my own perfect swimwear!” She even declined offers to endorse other bathing suit brands, as she was determined to make her own masterpiece. An amalgam of this epiphany, strong willpower, and drive, lead to the launch of her first collection in November 2016.
36 SUMMER 2017
The final product is stylish, practical pieces that stay in place even when you’re not simply sitting in the sand. “We want our ‘girl’ to feel confident and sexy, but also be comfortable and covered for any adventure that she engages in while wearing Prey.” The ‘Duck Dive Bottoms’ exemplify this concept. They’re an adorable statement piece with suspender-style straps that serve a purpose: they keep your bottoms in place even when ducking under a wave, (which lifts your confidence and lifts your bottom nicely). The line is an expression of Audrina’s wanderlust spirit, time spent in exotic locations combined with her Southern California roots. Prey Swim seamlessly blends her passions of globetrotting, surf, and eclectic feminine style into a fresh, versatile swim collection. Audrina explains the ideal ‘Prey Swim girl’ is, “a trend-starter, not a follower. She’s adventurous and absorbs something from each culture,” she says, “I also want her feel confident and whatever she wears, the ‘Prey Swim girl’ makes it her own.”

38 SUMMER 2017
Audrina’s creativity and innate fashion savvy are reflected in the success of her line. From design to fabric selection to production, she is devoted to delivering the perfect suit. “I’m hands on with everything related to Prey Swim.” But she humbly admits, “There are really challenging elements of owning your own business, but I like a challenge, and I’ve learned so much just within the past year.” Each season, Audrina will take the Prey Swim girl to another exotic and sexy location through the designs, imagery, and silhouettes. “Prey Swim embodies the girl collecting stamps on her passport with uninhibited desires. The swim shapes and styles we created perfectly show off the feminine form, while offering edge through details such as metal hardware accents, fringe, tassels, mesh, cinching, and even shark tooth charms!” The line was also designed with both function and seamless construction in mind, to offer women smooth, attractive lines, to protect the beautiful female shape. Not only a passion project, Prey Swim has become a family affair with Audrina’s two sisters, Casey Loza and Samantha Patridge, who play intricate roles in the business. “We literally grew
up in our bathing suits, always at the beach, lake, or pool together, so it was a natural fit to have them involved with Prey Swim.” They even came up with the brand name together, to which Audrina confesses, “It was the hardest part! But we all share a love for the ocean and sharks, and realized the word, prey, was a perfect fit.” But it’s more than just a cool name to them. Audrina wanted to bring awareness to sharks, whose role reversed from predator to prey resulting from harmful human activity like shark finning and ocean fishing. “As we continue to roll out Prey Swim collections and build the brand, we will also be working on efforts to help protect them. Sharks are gorgeous creatures; strong, capable, beautiful and empowering, which is my vision for our ‘Prey Swim’ girl.” Audrina’s introducing the summer collection in the beginning of June, which is inspired by 70’s style south of France, and she debuted one of the new summer tops in our photoshoot, “I got the summer samples a day before the shoot, and I even tweaked it a little more!” She’s thrilled with the new designs, and currently working on a ‘Resort Wear’ line which will premiere at Miami Swim Week in July.

40 SUMMER 2017
Although Audrina’s schedule seems jampacked, she somehow managed time to come up with her own jewelry line called, Theia by Audrina (available at www.stilnest.com/ audrinapatridge.com). Made in Germany, the line currently includes six delicate, dainty pieces designed for layering and “the quality is amazing,” Audrina says, “Kirra pulls on them all day long and haven’t broken once!” Audrina really seems to have it all together; she’s a strong minded businesswoman, loving wife, and mother. Perhaps a more mature version of herself from her time on Reality TV Show, The Hills. She filmed from ages 19 to 26 and reveals, “Those are the most crucial years of [a young person’s] life, and having to experience them on TV, where you’re getting picked apart and judged, was definitely hard. You can easily get sucked into Hollywood and forget your morals and values.” But it was the support system of her family that helped her to stay grounded throughout that time, “if they didn’t hear from me in a week, they’d come knocking
on my door and make me come home for a few days.” She warns young women against the allure of Hollywood, “It’s not always about parties, glitz and glamour. If you don’t have thick skin, you’re not going to make it.” She still keeps in touch with Heidi Montag, Whitney Port, and Kristin Cavallari from The Hills, but revealed she talks to Heidi the most and has given her a lot of pregnancy advice. Coincidentally enough, Heidi, Whitney, and Lauren are all pregnant at the same time. Perhaps a reunion show, when they’re all new mothers? Audrina says she’s not opposed to the idea, “It could be interesting! We would finally all have something in common, whereas before it was all just catfighting over boys and going out to clubs. Now we would genuinely actually have something we could relate to each other about.” Fingers crossed for a reunion season, but for now, it seems Audrina has enough on her plate.

SUMMER WINES LIGHT & REFRESHING CHOICES FOR HOT SUMMER NIGHTS
WRITTEN BY: EMILY JOHNSTON,
ADVANCED SOMMELIER, LES MARCHANDS WINE BAR & MERCHANT, SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA
PHOTOGRAPHED BY: ROB STARK
ummer is upon us, and as people head to beaches, parks, and porches, wine comes with them. With the warmer weather, we trend towards lighter, more refreshing wines and often, more casual wines. The crew behind the wines at Les Marchands Wine Bar & Merchant in Santa Barbara has some suggestions for summer wines that are both pleasurable and captivating. Ned Creed is the Director of Online Wine Sales and the Wine Club for Les Marchands. When asked what wine he turns to in the summer, he is quick to answer – “The first cork I would pull is from a bottle from Corsica, Marquiliani Vin de Corse Rosé 2016. The importer beats any description on what to expect from a glass of Marquiliani. Drinking her rosé is like drinking a cloud. There’s an absolute weightlessness to it. Zero gravity rosé!? Now that is the nexus of the universe. The domaine is located on the east coast of Corsica. The nearest town is called Aghione. 239 people live there. That includes Anne Amalric, whose father Daniel started farming the

land in the 1950s. The Vin de Corse Rosé is 90% Sciaccarellu and 10% Syrah from vines planted in 1964. The maritime influences and aromatic maquis shrubs surrounding the property impact the nose on this rosé like no other.”
47 SUMMER 2017
For me, as Les Marchands’ General Manager and Sommelier, the summer is one of my favorite times to drink dry sparkling whites. My choice is a sparkling chenin blanc from the Loire Valley. Domaine Huet Vouvray Pétillant 2012 is a stand-out with its refreshing apple blossom and pear notes. The pétillant style of sparkling wine has a softer perlage than Champagne, making it especially quaffable in warm weather. Domaine Huet is working with some of the most prestigious vineyards planted to chenin blanc in the Loire Valley. The grapes come from their three estate vineyards: Haut-Lieu, Le Mont, and Clos du Bourg. And Domaine Huet is one of the earliest adopters of biodynamic farming and winemaking.
Jeremy Bohrer, Les Marchands’ Retail Wine Manager, recommends light red sparkling wines. “When it’s warm out, and you don’t want anything too heavy or high in alcohol, go for a lighter sparkling red like Lambrusco, Brachetto or Bugey-Cerdon which are lower in alcohol and super refreshing. Patrick Bottex Bugey-Cerdon is a blend of 80% gamay, 20% poulsard made using the méthode ancestrale technique where the wine first goes through a primary fermentation in tank, then a secondary fermentation in the bottle for at least two months. Delightfully fresh, and at only 8% ABV, it is the perfect summer aperitif.”
What do we drink when the occasion calls for something a bit more formal? Ned: the most remarkable wine that has graced my stemware recently was the 00 Wines Pinot Noir ‘VGR’ 2014 from Willamette Valley. Lea Lafon is making these wines. Her father is Dominque Lafon, the prominent Burgundian vigneron with a family lineage in winemaking that is almost fictional, to the point where streets in villages are named for his ancestors. Lea has been in and around numerous vintages, learning from masters, and tasting more excellent wines than all of us combined. 00 has contracts in premier Willamette Valley vineyards like ‘Hyland,’ ‘Stardance,’ and ‘Shea.’ No mechanical bottling lines. Lush and fragrant are the two words they used to describe this vintage. As your parting gift, 00 also makes righteous chardonnay. Mercy.
“LUSH AND FRAGRANT ARE THE TWO WORDS THEY USED TO DESCRIBE THIS VINTAGE. AS YOUR PARTING GIFT, 00 ALSO MAKES RIGHTEOUS CHARDONNAY. MERCY” -NED CREED
49 SUMMER 2017
Emily: For serious summer wines, I head to Campania, Italy where you can taste the Mediterranean in your glass. In this region, you can find some interesting, age-worthy white and red wines from Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo on the white side and from Aglianico on the red side. While only recently resurrected, these grapes have a history that could date back to the ancient Roman and even Greek period. They grow on mountainous terrain and volcanic soils, offering exotic aromatics and fresh acidity. Despite the history of this area, many of the current producers are relatively new. One favorite producer of Fiano di Avellino and Greco di Tufo is Ciro Picariello. While his Fiano di Avellino can age at least 10 years, he only started growing Greco di Tufo in recent years. Contrade di Taurasi makes a great Taurasi DOCG from the Aglianico grape. The dusty tannins and volcanic soil make for a perfect pairing to juicy, barbecued meats.
Jeremy: During the summer, white takes center stage for me, but there are times when I want a red. I head to the lighter reds, and my current favorite is Beaujolais. 2015 is a superb vintage for Beaujolais. The weather was just right, and the wines it produced are plump, complex and some of the best values in wine right now. We were fortunate this year to get access to micro-producer, Domaine Lafarge-Vial. Lafarge-Vial is a new Beaujolais project from superstar Burgundy producer Domaine Lafarge. The 2015 Lafarge-Vial Fleurie "Clos Vernayâ€? is a stunner. Beautifully elegant, with a nose of spice, red fruits, and a palate of earth and minerals, itâ€™s followed by some firm but fair tannins.

Gliding Past All with Grace and P American Polo recision
By Whitney Hubbell Photographed by Juan Lamarca
Nic Roldan, Captain of the U.S. Polo Team and the Face of American Polo, explains, “You’re traveling at 30 to 40 miles per hour, chasing a ball that three other players are chasing. One bad decision can cost you your life.”
Albeit hard to believe, Nic wasn’t always confident in his skill. As a young professional, Nic got nervous and even a little superstitious. He admits, “I used to not clean my socks or not eat certain things [if I was on a winning streak] but as I’ve gotten older, I realize its all about preparation.” The professional polo player is dedicated to honing his skill and trains almost everyday. “You have to be 100% determined and confident and have a lot of optimism to become a professional, to be a winner.” This mentality earned him impressive career stats, corroborated with numerous trophies and titles on five continents at every goal level.
Polo is in Nic’s blood, helping to explain his inordinate talent. He’s a 4th generation polo player, father Raul, once played for the Sultan of Brunei. At age 2, their Argentinian family moved to Wellington, Florida, a polo-playing breeding ground.
By the time he was 3, Nic was saddling up next to his father. Horseback riding became second nature and polo became a regular pastime. Not long thereafter, Nic was the world’s youngest professional polo player at age 14. This wouldn’t be his only world record, however. Perhaps his proudest accomplishment, “winning the U.S. Open when I was fifteen was definitely an amazing moment,” which accredited the now 35-year-old, to be the youngest player in history to win the prestigious U.S. Open Polo title.
It’s a difficult concept to fathom though when watching Nic play. He elegantly navigates the field, gliding past opponents with grace and precision; wielding his mallet with gladiator-like authority. “You have to be quick to react and incredibly focused. Polo is like a chess match, it’s strategically played and horses are strategically positioned on the field. But it’s also a very physical game with high intensity and no room for error.”
“You’re traveling 30 to 40 miles per hour... one bad decision can cost you your life.”
here is a widespread misconception surrounding the sport of polo; that it’s a divot-stomping, mint julepdrinking, collared shirt-wearing social event for the rich and the Royals. On the contrary, polo is a multifaceted sport, requiring mental toughness, athletic ability, and equestrian skill. This dynamic team sport is not only athletically and emotionally taxing, but is also extremely dangerous.
Nic is somewhat of an oxymoron to the sport of Kings; wearing leather jackets, sporting tattoos and riding motorcycles. He’s surely not the vision one might expect of an upscale royal pastime. The U.S. Polo Captain’s demeanor is personified by his lime green skull and mallet logo, contrasting to other preppy symbols surrounding the heavily traditionalist sport. He explains, “Some people think it’s menacing but my intention was for [the logo] to be modern and edgy.” Perhaps it’s a bad boy facade to aid in his ultimate endeavor of increasing awareness about the sport’s true nature. “The biggest misconception with polo is that people think it’s just a lifestyle or luxury and that it’s not even a sport.” He is prospecting an athletic apparel line, hoping it will peak interest and initiate a movement to make the sport more accessible. A true Renaissance man, Nic Roldan is also business savvy. The Prince of Polo has a passion for real estate and has his hands in two different ventures. He and his mother flip houses under the name Roldan Designs. “My mother is an interior designer and has a very eclectic, unique style. My style is more contemporary and modern, so the combination creates something beautiful. It’s wonderful to spend time together doing something fun.” Nic’s second real estate undertaking was conceived with two childhood friends. Their business, Bedford Park Investment Group, delivers state-of-the-art turnkey equestrian facilities to the South Florida area. “It keeps me very busy [when I’m not playing polo] we do everything from creative design to construction. I love the creative aspect.”
the Kids Cancer Foundation. Brooke USA is committed to improving the health and wellbeing of working horses, donkeys and mules by providing treatment, training, and programs to some of the world’s poorest communities. Nic remains stedfast in advocating for horses welfare as they have been such an important aspect of his childhood and professional career. Together, they’ve created events like Nic Roldan’s Sunset Tournament, which has raised over a half million dollars in the past two years. Now extending globally, they plan to hold their first event outside of the U.S. this summer at the Cowdray House, a castle in Midhurst West Sussex, England.
With countless stellar accomplishments, Nic still shows no signs of slowing down. “My biggest goal is to reach the tengoal handicap which would be the ultimate achievement.” He continues with a long list of lofty aspirations, “I’d love to compete in the Argentine Tournament [the biggest tournament in the world], and would love to win another U.S. Open title, win the Queens Cup the Gold Cup, and just be the best that I can be.” No doubt that he will one day achieve all of his dreams, as the 35-year-old’s work ethic and unadulterated talent is unsurmountable. Nic was also awarded the Harriman Cup, which honors outstanding individuals who have influenced the world of polo and who embody leadership and public service. A well deserving title as Nic is a devout philanthropist; an ambassador to charities including Brooke USA and
Polo is not the only love of his life, however. Nic confessed his admiration for longtime girlfriend, Jessica Springsteen, decorated equestrian and daughter of Bruce ‘The Boss’ Springsteen. “I am so lucky to have found someone who shares a passion for horses. She’s an amazing girl and we’re so happy.” They support each others’ careers, Nic says, “I love watching jumping and I’m fascinated by her sport… I especially love watching her ride.” Polo matches and horse jumping have led the power couple to some of the most beautiful places in the world. They seem to be on a neverending Jetset circuit; currently spending most of the summer months competing in England before heading to Spain in July. Self-proclaimed ‘Modern Day Gypsy’ is definitely a world traveler but surely his mature manner and legendary achievements call for a title more deserving; maybe ‘Cosmopolitan Badass’ or ‘Globetrotting Gladiator.’ Or perhaps his namesake says it all: The Face of American Polo, Globetrotter, Philanthropist, Entrepreneur. Nic Roldan.
“I just want to promote polo, create philanthropic awarenes...I have a mission, it’s just what I do. “

SENSATIONAL SANIYYA SIDNEY TWO-TIME OSCAR NOMINATED (FENCES, HIDDEN FIGURES) TEN YEAR OLD LANDS HER 2ND LEAD ROLE.
BY WHITNEY HUBBELL
t age ten, Saniyya Sidney seems wiser, smarter, and more successful than most adults. Intuitively drawn to acting from watching TV, the ten-year-old has been in the biz since age five. “I was amazed how people got to express themselves through acting, and I was inspired, I knew I wanted to do it one day.”She fervently expressed an aspiration to act to her parents. Unconditionally supportive, but understandably unsure at first, they thought it might be best to wait. That notion quickly disappeared once Saniyaa began memorizing scenes from TV shows and performing monologues in their living room. It was obvious that their spirited daughter was born to act.
75 SUMMER 2017
Russell Hornsby, and Mykelti Williamson. Denzel Washington also provided Saniyya with some unforgettable wisdom, “Mr. Washington taught all of us to be humble, be yourself, always stay wise. Acting is a gift, and you get to show it to the world. Work hard.” She certainly bsorbed Washington’s wisdom, as she maintains a high level integrity and desire to achieve excellence in each role. “I always bring 100% into my work. I always bring a smile, and try to stay kind, courteous, and nice.” Her ambitions have paid off, as she just landed her second lead role that begins shooting in June. Her second lead role is a Ridley Scott project, that will begin shooting in June on location in Georgia. “I’ve been working hard for this. I’ve always prayed, and God has answered my question. I’ve focused on my craft, been honest and true to myself.” She says, “I continue to strive 100%, and when I got my first lead, it was really touching. I was so grateful, especailly getting to work with such awesome artists, it’s a true blessing.” She’s also thrilled with the shooting location, Atlanta, Georgia where her family is, so they can visit her on set. “I’m excited it’s in Georgia where my family is, and the storyline is awesome, Ridley Scott’s stories are always so artistic, and the way they end always makes you want to see another.” Although she loves to work she could barely contain her excitement about summer vacation plans, like any normal kid. With a trip to the Grand Cayman Islands and a cruise to Miami, who wouldn’t be excited?! Saniyya emits contagious positive energy, and a strong sense of values, hard work and integrity. When asked what advice she’d give to a kid her age trying to break into the acting industry, she said, “always be yourself, strive to be the best, work hard and always bring your best to the table, be kind, generous and sweet, give 100% to your character, basically be a ‘Viola Davis.’ Believe in yourself and stay true to who you are.” This advice seems transferrable to the anyone, no matter what age. Everyone can learn a little something from sensational, Saniyya Sidney.
Saniyya remembers driving by the location where the Oscars are held and saying to her father, “Dad, I’m going to be here…. I’m going to go to the Oscars one day,” She recalls, “And the next year, I was there!” Saniyya’s early intuition proved to be correct, upheld by two Oscar nominations for films: Fences and Hidden Figures. “It was a dream come true, I was so proud to be a part of two Oscar nominated films.” But the best thing about the Oscars? “Meeting Justin Timberlake!” Before rattling off an impressive list of other big name stars, like “Martin Scorsese, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Clint Eastwood, Viola Davis, Denzel Washington, and Caleb McLaughlin, from Stranger Things…” She was overjoyed to meet so many talented actors and actresses at her first Oscars. Even with all her raw talent, Saniyya continues to strive to be the best actress she can be. Working with incredible actors and actresses allowed Saniyya to finetune her art. Industry alum, Viola Davis, offered valuable advice while on the set of Fences. “Viola taught me how to tune into my emotions, if you ever need to cry, think about something that makes you think in life. She cries differently every single time, and I asked her, ‘How do you give such great performances?’ She said it always happens in different ways, but you always have to be artistic, and find your truth.” Saniyya remains a huge fan of Viola Davis, and cherished their time working together. When asked about the hardest part of working on set, you might think a ten-yearold would say being away from friends or school is difficult. On the contrary, Saniyya responded with only positive comments and revealed her favorite thing about being on set is, “meeting a new family, getting to meet new people, getting to love and be close to one another.” She was certainly in good company on the set of Fences with Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Stephen Denderson, Jovan Adepo,

METEORIC RISE OF AYOUNG MASTER
BY: JAN HADWEN HUBBELL
nter the colorful world of Elena Bulatova and make no mistake about this remarkable young artist: she is one of the fastest rising stars in the art world. Sound like hyperbole? One quickly finds that everything about Russianborn Elena is larger than life, especially the wild success of her paintings and sculptures. Begin with colorful twelve feet high resin and wood lollipops from her “Sweet Life” series or new pieces juxtaposing The Wall Street Journal with comic book super heroes. “I wanted to bring heroes into a dark situation. They give us hope and optimism with their superhuman powers,” she says of these works that were inspired when Elena noticed dire articles in the WSJ next to ads plugging luxurious products. That irony has been incorporated into her artwork. “Art should bring joy and help relieve your worries,” the 34-year old Elena says. And why is this multifaceted painter found reading the WSJ? Her degree in economics from Moscow State University and the pursuit of a PhD in Economics from Yale, where she received a prestigious fellowship, answers one question about how the prolific Elena has, within a few short years, built an art empire. She embodies the perfect marriage of creativity with business acumen. With unusual and unique new works and a pulse on today’s art market, she has successfully opened four galleries in as many years. The latest one in the exclusive art community of Laguna Beach, California follows her biggest opening yet at the posh Aria in Las Vegas, and two in the Palm Springs area of California near where her studio is located. While studying at the Ivy League school, Elena began to paint again as a hobby. But then, from her little studio, people began buying her paintings. It wasn’t as if she hadn’t any training. Her childhood was full of introductions to art that is an important part of the Russian culture. Elena’s parents, both engineers in Russia, enrolled her in art school after she began spontaneously painting at age six. While there she became proficient on the violin and an excellent dancer. By the time she attended Moscow State University she was in the dancing company and playing violin in the chamber orchestra. But it was in America that Elena began to realize her calling. “I feel free in California compared to Moscow. America brought me my creativity.”
“It doesn’t feel like work, because I love it so much.”
Jan Hubbell has won ﬁve awards for her screenplay, including the LA Film Festival for Best Comedy. She is featured in A Democracy of Poets, a ﬁnalist in the Colorado Book Awards. Previously, Ms. Hubbell worked on Wall Street as a business writer.
And now, it is a family affair, for Elena collaborates with her sister and Efi’s sister to help them define in their art what the market is yearning for, and includes their creations in her galleries as well. It is not hard to find yourself falling in love with Elena’s art and her sensibility. Recently, she was asked to paint an equestrian-themed piece for a Cystic Fibrosis benefit at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. After much research about horses and racing, she painted a large canvas, but ran out of time. She framed it and rushed the painting to the event for it to be auctioned off even though it was still wet. “The purpose of creating art is to share something beautiful with the world. All my work is bright and positive.” The Mayor of Palm Springs was ebullient about Elena’s work and trajectory as an art world star at the gallery opening: “Elena represents that anything is possible,” he said. As she continues to grow and challenge herself with bold moves, such as opening the fourth Elena Bulatova Gallery in Laguna Beach, she is a living example of her unwavering rock-solid message. “You should always believe in yourself. Make goals. Pursue them. Don’t listen to the people who discourage you.” If art is expression, the only word to explain the meteoric rise of this exquisite artist and the magic and glamour of her work would be: astounding.
Within a year of leaving Yale and meeting her husband and business partner, Efi Mashiah, a thriving art dealer, Elena opened the largest gallery in Palm Springs. Efi encouraged her to branch out into cutting edge pop art-- recycled golf club sculptures, giant popsicles and lollipops in vibrant bold colors. The sheer variety and extent of her work is astonishing. The first year of Elena’s gallery opened in Palm Springs, her pieces caught the attention of collectors around the world and she sold over 100 paintings. “It doesn’t feel like work,” she says, “because I love it so much.” Her bright vivid works carry the message Elena intends: “My art is a spiritual journey where color and form communicate visions emerging from my soul.” The influences of Russian artist, Wassily Kandinsky and American, Jackson Pollock are evident in her abstract multi-media paintings that flow with spontaneity, energy and light. “There is the impression of spontaneity but careful planning goes into each piece, oftentimes because their large size demands it,” Bulatova says. One artist at her Palm Springs opening called her paintings, “Cosmic Pow.” And he isn’t the only one using these expressions to define Elena’s art. “There is an excitement that is bold and fresh,” says another leading artist. Her work has been featured in Architectural Digest and many art magazines, exhibited in the South Nevada Museum of Art, Naples Museum of Art, the Biennale in Miami and art fairs up and down the California coast. Several hotels including the Hyatt are collectors of her sculptures. Two new resorts in Guadalajara and Cabo San Lucas will display Elena’s large commissioned sculptures. Her paintings grace private collections across the globe. Having been encouraged by her husband, Efi, Elena now repays the gift by offering him the same support. His impressive wall sculptures, made entirely of multicolored painted screws depicting familiar objects and faces are prominently displayed in all four galleries.

Wholesale Jet Club
DISRUPTING THE PRIVATE JET INDUSTRY
isrupting the private jet brokerage industry in a simple powerful, and fantastic way! When it comes to your private jet travel, there are so many options, one quite frankly doesnâ€™t know where to begin or how to really compare amongst the numerous competitors. In the private jet world is the innovation of Wholesale Jet Club, the first subscription wholesale private jet concierge service. Just as the name implies, Wholesale Jet Club has taken the wholesale club business model and applied it to business jets delivering true wholesale pricing with 100% transparency. By removing the middle man from the equation, Wholesale Jet Club members see anywhere from 20% to 70% in savings. A small annual fee allows the consumer to shed brokers, charter companies, jet cards, and fly for the wholesale cost price.
TRAVEL “SAVINGS OF $1,000 TO UPWARDS OF $5,000 AN HOUR PER FLIGHT,” STEVEN ORFALI SAYS, “TENS OF THOUSANDS TO HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS PER YEAR.”
Memberships take minutes to secure at WholesaleJetClub.com.
One might think that the aircraft type and options must be limited due to the lower price but that’s not the case. Aircraft vary from very light, light and heavy jets, through the ranks to jumbo jets. There is no deviating from an exceptional selection for members to travel. “The biggest flaw with the brokerage model is we’re not a regulated industry,” says Wholesale Jet Club CEO Steven Orfali, “so brokers are not capped on the commissions that they can make, meaning they’re actually marking up charters sometimes upwards of 50%.” Wholesale Jet Club is then able to deliver members with savings of “$1,000 to upwards of $5,000 an hour per flight which is tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars per year, depending on how much you fly” explains Orfali. Wholesale Jet Club is backed by a team, who along with Orfali, has extensive experience and strong relationships in the industry. This allows Wholesale Jet Club to directly deliver rock bottom prices to members with the very low membership fees. Options include 3-month, 6-month, and annual memberships which start at less than $1,000. Members are assigned a personal flight concierge that ensures all their travel needs are immediately addressed.

HEALTH, YOUTH & BEAUTY REDEFINED

uxury! A word that originally meant ”waste of something precious.” We live in a world where we continuously strive for more, and often in the process waste the most priceless thing we have our health, our youth, our very essence of beauty! What if we told you, you could live a life of opulence while turning yourself into a stunning paragon...How? Foremost leading expert on undoing genome decay and aging-mutations, Avra Amar Filion states “most (particularly bioengineers) have the misconception that we need to prolong our longevity and bring a halt to the cellular clock that ticks ever so quickly to death. They believe the answer could be found in artificial cellular replacement and they are hugely mistaken, because you can never artificially reproduce one’s life force. Without a continuous reboot of our life force, longevity becomes an extended period of a miserable vegetative state. Restoring the life force in an individual naturally is simple.” Ms. Filion has developed “Zangevity” a method that has the world in shock for its ability to restore your life force in hyper-speed. Zanqara, a comprehensive line of over 300 products, all designed with herbs, extracts, active stem cells, homeopathy, Bach Flowers, minerals, amino acids, oils, butters, and much more, and most importantly, the products are chemical free. Your skin is like a beautiful mansion. You don’t maintain the exterior to only allow the interior support structure to rot away, where eventually the mansion will collapse. Maintaining your skin with cosmetics filled with chemicals or botulism is the same case scenario. For a fleeting moment you may look younger, but you, yourself are chipping away at your body’s internal structure and your cells will collapse. The aging will be permanent and the side effects a visible thorn in your side. Zanqara products have the capacity to increase your skin’s ability to produce its own collagen and elastin up over 2,700% in fifteen days. The results last up to 4 months even when not using the products, because the line is designed to enable your body to function on its own, rather than being dependent on a product.
LIFE “WE ARE IN THE BUSINESS OF CARING FOR OUR CUSTOMERS AND UNDOING THE SKIN ABUSE THEY ENDURE FROM OTHER LINES,” AVRA AMAR FILION

“BEST SKIN CARE EVER! My skin is firmer, softer and more youthful than when I was in my twenties! ZANQARA is the best thing to ever happen to me!” — Client Testimony
“I had a skin condition for over 10 years, which left me feeling horribly insecure and hopeless. I tried everything and even medicated creams failed to give me any form of relief.... Then finally I tried Endora Noir and Haberlea by ZANQARA, within three months my condition was completely gone and I look 10 years younger. I have never felt so confident, get compliments on my skin all the time. ZANQARA changed my life in so many ways and I will never use anything else EVER!” — Client Testimony
Ms. Filion states “surprisingly we have everything at our disposal, except, the very things we truly need. Everything has been mutated and manipulated, purity has been wiped from western civilization, and that is why I developed this line. I have searched high and low, and found the rarest organic therapeutic raw materials from around the world. In essence, I’m “uncivilizing” one’s body so they can thrive and withstand the harm of day to day living that causes our bodies to decay in hyper speed. Our skin is an organ which feeds our body with everything it comes into contact with. A proper formulation can undo genome mutations and reverse the damage to our DNA, which results in the appearance of aging and other outer unpleasant manifestations. Clients state that after one application of a Zanqara routine specifically designed for them, they feel happier, their moods begin to balance, and they experience a sense of joy and confidence. They feel healthier, stronger, mentally more virile, and instantly look bright, radiant, and dramatically younger! Each person has the cellular capacity to live over a hundred and feel under fifty. With our Zangevity along with our personalized life coaching we enable that capacity.” Zanqara products are formulated understanding every aspect of aging (environmental, physical, emotional, and energy based), it even considers the cell psychology and physiology and how it dramatically differs from one individual to another. Therefore, every formulation is unique, and Ms. Filion often creates custom formulas for those needing a unique combination to address their specific concerns. “Skin care is an industry that feeds off the skin misfortune of others to line manufacturers’ pockets. They produce products that will inevitably destroy their client’s skin and their overall health. 90% of cosmetic lines (including the ones claiming to be organic, with certifications) use raw materials that are dangerous in even small doses. They are corrosive, carcinogenic, cause reproductive and organ mutations and toxicity, and can lead to brain decay and tissue deterioration. We are in the business of caring for our customers and undoing the skin abuse they endure from other lines!”
Zanqara has 11 lines and in 60 years are proud to say they have no reactions or returns. They have remained the leaders in the world of skin therapy, skin restoration, and skin rejuvenation with no competition. When it comes to turning back the clock, so to speak, Zanqara is the only option. Being the best version of yourself comes down to one word – NO! No to compromise, no to chemicals, no to second best, and no to anything that isn’t Zanqara, the redefinition of luxury! Indulge while preserving what is precious and priceless - you!
