American Made Emily Kroll has successfully designed, manufactured, and distributed custom furniture since 1992. She has created custom and contract furniture for notable interior designers, celebrities and large corporations. She is passionate about changing the way the furniture business works in the United States where production is notoriously wasteful, and many toxic chemicals are used. Determined to make the process of producing furniture safe for her craftsmen and clients, Emily launched EKLA HOME in 2007.

The granddaughter of a furniture designer on one side, and an architectural and scrap metal recycler on the other, EKLA HOME’s approach is rooted in Emily’s DNA. A lifelong Southern California resident, Emily is at the nexus of a close beachside community that holds environmentalism as a way of life and a business model. Emily has aligned with Donna Halloran to help her develop the collections and source ingredients and fabrics. Donna most recently worked for five years with the pioneers in nontoxic upholstered furniture, Furnature, Inc., and has 25 years of experience in textile product development, having worked for companies such as William Carter Co. (baby clothing), Baby Dior, TJX Corp, Ametex Fabrics and Robert Allen Fabrics.


The FSC Certified wood is solid A grade alder from California. Alder is a plentiful hardwood that is non-aromatic, and doesn’t have much of an odor and doesn’t develop one over time. Our Alder is untreated.

We are driven to produce the highest quality non-toxic upholstered furniture for the benefit of our customers, ourselves and our workers. Along with producing such furniture, it is our self-imposed obligation to share knowledge about toxins, sustainability and healthy living. It is also our self-imposed responsibility to share the fruits of our labor with our employees, business partners, customers and community. EKLA HOME is a company that embraces input, learning and teaching. The company is defined by the spirit, passion, integrity and intention of its contributing members. We are all interconnected and use the synergy of relationships to make us stronger. Our upholstered furniture pieces aren’t just pieces of furniture. As heirloom quality, each piece has a story of real people, craftsmen, whose energy and pride move forward with the pieces as they leave our facility. EKLA HOME celebrates the power of people and knowledge as the key components to a healthful work life and a successful company. Oh, and sprinkle these with lots of laughs and fun along the way. 29

The Coachella spring music festival is a must go to music event if you’re a part time music lover hipster or full time party animal. On April 12-14 2013, the biggest indie, rock, alternative, and electronic artist performed on multiple stages in Indio, California. Headlining the weekend: The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phoenix, Blur, and the Stone Roses. The weekend promised music for all ages and genres from noon to midnight. Inside the Coachella camp includes 5 outdoor stages with a main stage and EDM Tent.

Coachella 33

Coachella The EDM stage design is identical to one used at Ultra this year in Florida. While between acts you can enjoy great grub with LA based food trucks, beer gardens, and a hidden red bull speak easy bar. Larger then life art offers shelter from the sun and place to take a break from the live atmosphere. Illuminated palm trees that are saturated in LED colors surround the grounds. Don’t forget your shades. Sunglasses offer protection from the dust, sun, and allow for great incognito people watching.

Coachella attendees are in some of their finest spring casual. From funky hairstyles, flower bands in hair, half dressed, and just weird you might even see a banana walking around. The biggest dilemma is with so many bands and so little time you won’t get to see everyone you want. Half the fun is bargaining with your friends on what stage to go next. The official Coachella app helps to schedule your day.

Phoenix took the stage to close out Saturday night playing songs from their new cd Bankrupt! "This is the biggest crowd we've ever played for," Mars from Phoenix told the crowd. The main stage was packed while everyone was waiting for the big surprised act. Rumors were crazy all weekend that Daft Punk would be joining Phoenix. Halfway through the special guest came out and it wasn’t what anyone was expecting. R. Kelly joined Phoenix to play a live mash up version of 1901 and Ignition. The crowd went nuts. Although it wasn’t Daft Punk, it was excellent. Some other highlights of the festival weekend were Vampire Weekend, Of Monsters and Men, The Faint, Tegan and Sara, and The Postal Service. Dog blood, a side project of Skrillex and Boys Noize got the beats flowing and the crowd dancing in the Sahara Tent. Having this been my first year attending and I can see Coachella becoming my annual music festival. With this year already over tickets go on pre-sale next month. Plan accordingly and see you next year! -Brett Schorr

The Long On Shorts By Jazmin Whitley

Favorite summer trend of 2013 - Denim shorts You can pair them with a band shirt or a silk top, dress them up or down the high waisted short is all the rage this summer. High waist jeans are flattering on almost every body type. Every retail store is stocking up on these must have shorts so, no matter your budget, there are a pair just for you. Another thing I love about this trend is that you can make it your own, almost anything goes! You can wear them studded, super short, a litter longer, with or without embellishments. I've seen really cute floral print shorts, not to mention all the bold colorful pairs! So basically you can wear this trend in an endless amount of styles. It's all about having fun and making them your own. 48

Jean-Luc Bilodeau

He can remember making his family laugh to tears at the dinner table

Jean-Luc is best known for his role on the long running ABC Family sci-fi drama series “Kyle XY”, where he played Kyle’s smug but charmingly handsome bad boy brother, ‘Josh Trager.’ Most recently, he was featured in the recurring role of ‘Bret Martin’ on ABC’s “No Ordinary Family” starring Emmy winner Michael Chiklis, playing the love interest to Kay Panabaker’s character.

Do you buy American made? I DO buy American made, especially all my New Balance sneakers. It's important to help promote business strength in this country, and if I have the option, I always buy American made. Do you think that the American dream is still alive? I think everyone has their own version of "The American Dream." For me, “The American Dream” is success and family, whereas for others it may be a Ferrari. “The American Dream” is always alive if people seek to achieve greatness in whatever it is they feel is appropriate. What are 3 things you can not live without? Fast cars, beautiful women, and my family.

Nationalist was excited to get to know Jean-Luc a little better, here is the interview that reaffirmed how much we already liked him. Please tell us a little about yourself. I'm a lot like my dad: very chill, laid back, and not threatened by a good time. My goal in life is to stay happy and healthy— everything in between is a stepping stone. What was it like when you found out season 3 was picked up. The morning of our last day of filming, our executive producer, Dan, invited the entire cast and crew into the studio and told us the season three news. I knew our third season was coming, but I did not see it coming so soon. It's extremely rare to find out that you've been picked up for another season while still shooting the previous season. It's such an amazing feeling! We are so blessed to work with such an awesome group for another year. Before "Baby Daddy" had you ever cared for a baby (held a baby, feed a baby)? My first day on the set of “Baby Daddy” was the first time I'd ever really interacted with a baby. I was pretty nervous, but these kids are so well behaved and it made my job way easier. Now I'm a pro. Give me a baby; I'll know what's up.

What’s on your playlist? “Anything by Rush”.

Photographer by Lesley Bryce

Are you and "Ben" similar in anyway? Ben and I are very similar. I like to keep me character grounded like me, so we react the same in most situations. He's a good kid with a big heart who stepped up to the plate when needed to. He makes his mistakes and so do I, but we both learn from them equally. What can we look forward to in the 3rd season? We have an amazing season two. The same funny, heart, and playfulness we had in season one, but bigger and better in our number two. There are a range of great guest stars, a boiling love triangle, and of course, the extremely adorable baby Emma. We are very proud of our product this year. I can't wait for everyone to enjoy it. 55

What are 3 things you can not live without? Fast cars, beautiful women, and my family.

Photographer by Lesley Bryce

How has your character changed from the first season to the 3rd? Ben is growing up and becoming a more responsible young man and father. He tries to take all the right directions for Emma, and when he makes a mistake, he quickly learns from it. I guess you could say he is still just as funny and youthful, but is always adapting to every step raising a baby has to offer. Are you working on any other projects right now? I'm working on my own project called "Project Summer," as in I'm just trying to enjoy myself in this short offseason. (smile) Hopefully something will come along that will be fun and exciting. If not, I'm totally okay with going boating, hanging with my buddies, and soaking in the sun until we go back to work. Tell us something about yourself that not many people know. I love golf. A lot of people don't know that. My dad took me on golfing trips all over the interior of British Columbia back when I was a little guy. Some of my favorite memories are learning how to golf with my dad and traveling to all sorts of beautiful destinations. What would be the perfect date in your real life? A perfect date would be: First, a small dinner because I think eating and talking for two hours is boring and hard to do. Second, a couple glasses of good wine on the beach, chatting in the sand‌ 56 57


The Latest On Reality Moms When I tune in to watch the Duggar’s in action I catch myself saying I wish I had Michelle Duggar’s patience she always seems so calm and in control, you can just feel the love she has for those kids.

With 19 children of their own, two grandchildren, and another grandchild on the way, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar surprisingly say that they are open to the idea of expanding their brood through adoption. “We are praying about it, and we will see what God has in store. Love for children has been placed on our hearts,” Michelle, 45, told People magazine. After suffering a miscarriage in 2011 that resulted in the loss of a little girl they named Jubilee, Michelle and Jim Bob are still thinking of opening their hearts and home to a child in need of a family. Michelle says, “We are open to whatever is in store. It doesn't really matter whether I would have another child or we would adopt, but we want to approach it with an open heart." With 19 other children of their own, adopting might change the family dynamic, but according to Michelle, all the others are on board with the idea of adding another member to their everexpanding clan, telling PEOPLE, “The kids are definitely pushing towards wanting us to open our home up…They see how much we have been blessed with and how little so many children have, and they want to share. We tell our children that would have to be something that is in God’s will for our family, and we will see if it is. Our children love children, and we all do.” The idea of adoption came to them after a recent visit to an orphanage in China. The visit was being filmed for a special airing on TLC called 19 Kids and Counting: Duggars do Asia. The Duggars admit that they have been further influenced by friends of theirs who have adopted, but that they have to make sure that it is something that God wants them to do. “Whether he gives us a child [through pregnancy], there is no doubt in our minds that is what He wants, but when it comes to adoption, we would have to know for sure that was His will.” Whether they decide to have another child or adopt, it is certain that that child will be welcomed with open arms and an open heart.

Hope it works out.

Sounds like she just wants a little more attention.

Catelynn Lowell Born: March 12, 1992 Hometown: Port Huron, Michigan Child: Carolynn “Carly” Father of the child: Tyler Baltierra After watching Teen Mom you probably saw Catelynn and Tyler move around a lot. However, now they own their own house! What is she doing now? Her and Tyler are wrapping up the taping of VH1’s Couple’s Therapy. Admitting you need some help in your relationship is healthy. Hope it helps we know it helped with the bills.

“Bad” Wale by Evan L. Jackson Known for his word play and most notably dropping poems in his songs Hip Hop artist Wale delivers on his lead single “Bad” featuring newcomer Tiara Thomas. In a recent interview Wale said he wanted this upcoming album, The Gifted, to be the soundtrack to people’s summer. The lead single “Bad” has a distinct feel with its slow tempo and the unique bed springs sound effect in the background that make the track stand out. Wale speaks his mind on the beginning of the song admitting “Bad girls ain’t no good and the good girls ain’t no fun.” The mixture of Tiara Thomas’s soulful voice on the hook and Wale’s smooth lyrics makes this a summer hit. Initially “Bad” was on Wale’s late 2012 mixtape Folarin. The popularity of the song led him to put it on his new album. It has reached the top ten on the iTunes and Billboard Hip Hop charts. Wale’s last album Ambition was well received and earned him his first Grammy nomination making 2012 his breakout year. His success is continued with this third studio album The Gifted which is out June 25 th. 61

Product Tip Top Shoe Saver

Whether you are faced with an interview, business meeting or first date, you want to make the best first impression, as it is the first opinion a person will have of you. Research shows that the first thing someone notices is how a person carries themselves and surprisingly enough shoes are one of the first to catch their eye—as noticeable as hair, eyes and smile. That being said, when you are trying to impress, no matter the situation, you want your shoes to be in tip top shape. The look of a pointy toe is classic and appropriate for any first encounter, but it is inevitable that a crease will appear at the toe and it’s impossible to avoid since fabric and leather will stretch over time. That tiny crease can damage appearances—and confidence. During a shopping trip, Kelly Lyles noticed a crease had formed at the tip of her new, expensive Chanel boots. Devastated, Kelly knew she had to come up with a solution so she created Tip Top Shoe Saver. With the newest must-have accessory, Tip Top Shoe Saver, you can preserve the life of your shoes. Tip Top Shoe Saver is a small insert for the tips of pointy shoes and boots. Once inserted into the shoe, it helps shoes return to their original form. Made for everyone, it’s one-size-fits-all with adjustable inserts that help mold to any shoe size or shape.

Achieving and keeping a flat abdomen Written by: Arnold Jones We all desire to stay fit and yearly goals that sound achievable. In order to obtain and sustain a flat abdomen it requires a lot of dedication initially. It is repeated over and over in almost every article or book you read about seeing your physician before you start on any type of regiment from a dietary standpoint to physical exercise. This is not because they are the master of knowledge or make your decisions for you. The reason this should be the first step anyone takes is because you should want to know your limitations. When it comes to shrinking your waistline there is a lot involved. It is not just eating correctly or doing hundreds of sit-ups or crunches. There are other muscles that also need to be exercised. There are you lateral muscles, your back muscles and even your hips and thighs. Yes these do all play a part in achieving a flat abdomen. Stay away from sugars , fatty meats (beef, chicken, pork and even some fish), soda’s, energy drinks, etc. All of these listed above and a lot more are indeed unhealthy. However, one does need protein, amino acids, vitamins, electrolytes, etc. These are essential building blocks for when you do exercise; you will need to replace salts, electrolytes, etc. in order to ensure your body is staying healthy.

The Facts:

Stay away from sugars and fatty meats add more lean protein to your diet.

You will need to do calisthenics (jumping jacks, sit-ups, crunches, squats, stretching exercises, exercises that work the different muscles on your sides, etc. None of these requires lifting weights. Although lifting weights, if you do decent mid-line core strength, will help this process be achieved faster. As stated earlier this is why you should speak with your doctor first, so they can advise you as to whether or not you should start with weights. If you do have a gym membership then there are also dieticians and personal trainers there to give you advice and correct exercise form. Form is the most important aspect of achieving core strength and muscle tone as well as eating properly. I personally hate the word diet, because you do not need to go on a diet. They really do not work. You can eat most of the foods you like without worry. Of course you don’t want to over eat either. Vegetables in the raw form are the best. Cooked vegetables are ok as well, you do not get that many nutrients from cooked foods though. You can eat chicken and pork is better than beef. However, you can not eat either of these in the raw form. Salads are a good afternoon meal, protein drinks are ok as long as you read the ingredients and sugar is not very high on the list of ingredients. Sugar is in just about everything. What you do want is good sugars.

Eat smaller meals more times a day, 5 small meals instead of 3 bigger meals. This keeps your body burning calories all day.


Exercising is great for the mental and physical body. Getting a firm abdomen requires quite a lot of effort which can be achieved if you do it properly and start with analyzing your physique. Good sugars come from fruits and veggies. Beets, Corn, kiwi’s, oranges, grapefruits, etc. In regards to protein there are so many options for protein. There is beans, homemade peanut butter, vegetable proteins, etc. As for milk and eggs, Well I can say I truly enjoy both. Both of these have protein in them and they also have a large amount of fat as well. These are great tasting yet they should be eaten with moderation. In regards to exercising, there are many options to choose from. Swimming is a great muscle toner. Swimming works all of the muscles in your body as well. I will list a few different exercises as well. There are jumping jacks, bicycle crunches, Ab rollers, bent knee-hip raises, butt-up exercises, cross-body crunches, side bends, jack-knife sit-ups and a lot more. None of these listed require weights. You should be able to find a ton of Physical Training (PT) exercises. I am not talking about the Navy Seal Work-outs. Most people would be unable to do this day in and day out. It takes a lot of time and requires a great deal of determination to accomplish this. It is a very good exercise program if you are already in shape and eating healthy. Most of us though looking to trim off some pounds around our waist line or want to see a six-pack do not have a strong core strength to achieve

Although once you do obtain great abs then you must also maintain them. So eat properly, exercise several times a week and do what you are physically able to do. Then build from there.

this . There is a lot to consider when truly looking to knock off a few pounds in general let alone attack one of the most difficult areas on our bodies to get into shape. There is eating right, daily or at least 3 times a week worth of exercising, researching about exercises that will help work on our mid-section as a whole. In order to have good abs one must also exercise the lower back and your oblique’s (side muscles) as well. This is a package deal. Don’t set your expectations to low or too high either. Do what you can. So doing it right is important as toned abs will not come overnight nor will they come without some sort of pain. The most important thing though is to do what you can physically (no weights are needed) and within your limits. Start out slowly and the inches will drop if you keep working at it. Remember it is not about immediate results. If you put too much physical strain (shock) on your body as it will shut down and you will only get negative results. In another words instead of losing weight your fat cells will store more fat tissue in them as they think they will be starving. This is very important and a lot of people do not think about this. This is also why diets don’t work. Diets put your body in a state of shock and your body goes into starvation mode. So you may lose weight but one usually gains it all back and probably more. So go slow and take it one step at a time , do your best and soon you will be rocking the body you always wanted.

A personal note; I have gone from a 44 inch waist line to a 42 inch waist line in 4 months. Time and determination is what it takes. My goal is a 38 inch waist line and I am 48 years old. I am getting there, slowly but getting there 65

Do you buy products that are Made in America? I try to. It's so hard because so much is being outsourced these days. I would much rather spend a ton of money on something made in USA though. I remember one Christmas my mom made it her goal to only buy stuff that was made here. It was super difficult but she succeeded, totally worth It What is your favorite thing about working on "Switched at Birth“? The people I work with. I absolutely adore the cast, the crew, the writers, producers, pretty much everyone. If you were not acting what would you be doing? I used to pretend I was a lawyer when I was little. I'd write out contracts to negotiate. Do you consider yourself more of a girly girl or a tomboy? I'm kind of a mix. I don't like sports, or typical guy stuff. On the other hand, I dress in black most of time and I have no problem killing a spider. Who are your favorite designers and where are your favorite places to shop? I love Ted Baker, All Saints, Anthropologie, J brand, James Perce. Love to shop at Nordstrom. What does the American dream mean to you? That nothing can hold you back. Just by looking at my grandparents and my parents, I know anything can be accomplished if you are driven. If you could change one thing about the entertainment industry what would it be? It so unpredictable. I'm such a control freak, and I hate not knowing things. What is your idea of the perfect date? Just being able to laugh with someone. 76

We know you are not big on social media, tell us why you don't think it's important to be on twitter/instagram etc I just think it's sad that we are getting to a point in society where we communicate with each other mostly behind a screen. I understand the pros of social media, but for me they just don't outweigh cons like loss of eye contact in conversation. What are your go-to beauty items? I love the tarte products specifically the blush. I'm also a fan of wearing any kind of dark lip color. Where is your favorite place to eat? My parent's house. My dad's an awesome cook. The Nationalist magazine team loved styling you, you were a pleasure to work with at the photo shoot. What keeps you so grounded? Thank you. I had a blast working with you guys! It's obviously important to surround your self with grounded people, like family and friends. I also think starting so young helped. I didn't really have a concept in regard to the shallowness and rejection involved the business. It was just about being happy while acting and it still is. What advice do you have for people trying to make it in the entertainment industry? There are so many aspect of the industry : producing, writing, acting, camera, sound, lighting, hair, make up, wardrobe, directing, and acting. Find what you love and work hard. Learn all you can and practice all you can. Being successful is knowing that you would still be be happy just doing what love without the promise of success. Do you have a celebrity crush? Jon Stewart. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Hopefully still working. Fingers crossed. 77
