Carlsbad is a cornucopia of beauty and abundance, but what makes it so special, is the heart of its people. Carlsbad gives and gives and gives.  I am privileged to have a vehicle where I can share with you the gifts and wonders of this community and its generous people.  Each month we try to create awareness as well as celebrate the kindness of Carlsbad.  The list is too long to cover all, but as I head off to support the Boys and Girls Club this evening at their annual fundraiser, I tip my hat to this compassionate organization and all who help run the machine.  Mitchell Thorp Foundation, San Diego Charitable Foundation, Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation, The Assistance League, Kindness Meters, North Coast Calvary Church, The Carlsbad Library Foundation and North County Board Meeting are just a few of the other organizations Carlsbad Lifestyle embraces.  These and many, many more non-profit groups, as well as individuals, make our lovely town, miraculous. It is a pleasure to welcome in the holidays with you.  Enjoy all the love coming your way and while you are at it, look for an opportunity, however small, to pay it forward.  It is the heartbeat of our town! With Much Love, Lucy

Open House

(CON TI N U ED)

The meandering Koi Pond sets the mood of this aesthetic and tropical oasis, an homage to Ko’s love of Hawaiian culture. A visual and visceral experience beyond all expectations; the property’s tones, patinas, textures and artwork are all accentuated by the masterful talent of Ko, the sculptor. Each room conveys its intended mood: as exemplified by the sultry Dining Room with rich, lustrous woods, the handsome and secluded Executive Office with Bird’s Eye View of the Golf Course and Resort, the authentic and exciting Teppan Room which easily converts to an exclusive card room, the intimate outdoor Living Room warmed by a cozy fireplace, or the compelling heated outdoor Sports Bar suited for lively entertaining, grand or intimate. The private, custom-built electronically-secured, Gated Golf-Cart Path from the home allows easy access to a round of Golf or to the fun-filled amenities of the La Costa Resort. Sun-drenched afternoons

by the private Venetian glass mosaic tile Pool and Spa offer Southern California living at its best. In spite of the highest level of elegance and refinement, there is a carefree, joie de vivre aspect to this home, highlighted by its “Pool-to-Putt” convenience… ideal for the Connoisseur of fine-living or the Golf Aficionado.

oils. Stopping by the store will elevate your understanding of the art and science of olive oil as well as delight your senses. Humble Olive Oils Owner, Zac Markham experienced exceptional olive oil during his travels to places like Australia, Spain, Italy, France and Greece.  Inspired by his new found passion, he opened Humble Olive Oils two and half years ago.  Zac still travels to olive farms regularly as part of his commitment to bring the best olive oil to his loyal customers.


Zac, along with his sister and brotherin-law, turned his vision into an inspirational and inviting space by fashioning wood tables, texturing walls and choosing warm elements that transport you to the ambiance of an olive farm in Sicily. Zac is kind and friendly and always happy to guide you through popular flavor pairings and recipe ideas.  The infused balsamic, complemented with fig, rosemary, maple, or Meyer lemon are rich, complex, and ever so sweet; perfect with the Tuscan herb oil. Be adventurous and taste something unique like coconut vinegar and lime olive oil or an oil infused with spicy seasonal chilies! The nutty, creamy and fresh taste of the sesame oil and vinegar pairing will be the stars of your Chinese chicken salad. Use your Humble Olive Oil for finishing a pizza or roasted chicken, marinades, deep frying, glazing, pan searing and everything in between. Why does it taste SO GOOD? Similar to fine wine, there are a variety of factors. CONTINUED >

Locally Owned (C ON TI N U ED) The oils come from two independent labs and, like wine, are shipped topped with argon gas to stop the aging process. They are stored in beautiful  metal containers called fucis, which line the store. These containers protect the oil from heat, light, and air which can degrade it.  Olive oil is technically a fruit juice and like an avocado, will experience oxidation.  Each fuci carries a valuable tag revealing the six components which make up the quality of that particular extra virgin olive oil. Crush date is also important. The closer the oil is to the crush date, the better the quality.  It’s comforting to know Humble Olive Oil products are pure and traceable. Olive Oil and vinegar have a long standing relationship, which is why Humble Olive Oils offers a beautiful spectrum of vinegar to complement their olive oils.  In addition, you can pick up Humble Olive Oil’s popular house blended spice combinations as well as specialty pastas, sauces, chocolates, salts and much more.

“The spirit of volunteerism is one of the things that makes Carlsbad so special. Our community cares for one another, they love their city, and they want to give back.” - Matt Hall Mayor of Carlsbad “Coming to this makes you feel like you’re human. It’s so hard on the street. I can’t even imagine being a lady out there with what we deal with. A lot of us go a long time without a shower and usually take a bird bath in a park bathroom sink. This is the best thing, we get to clean up and we really appreciate it.” - Randy C.  November 2017 | Carlsbad Lifestyle
