The Pearl Mic


Thanks for tumbling by my little corner of the web. My name is Cole and I run a cute little music and lifestyle blog called The Pearl Mic . We showcase bold, beautiful and brilliant ladies in the music industry, plus bits of my nights gallivanting around Los Angeles.

Make sure to stop by when you get a chance.


I enjoy the summer because not only do I get to leave work early, but I get to hangout in my favorite cities longer to shop, eat, or just browse. A couple Fridays ago, my sis and I hung out in Santa Monica for an afternoon. We like to park, walk, and make rounds to different businesses. We bond and revel in the moment of being tourists in our town. On that day, we stopped by Studio Five08 to see a photo exhibit called Beautiful Machine. Here are some *snaps from my visit:

Here’s David Brady. He’s the curator of Beautiful Machine and a very talented artist. I can also add comedian to his list of talents because my sister and I laughed as he told his very colorful tales of living in Los Angeles.

Here’s one of my favorite:

In our short chat with David, he said that his team may extend the exhibit to the end of August. Please call to confirm before going though.

*FYI, I am not a photographer, nor am I trying to be. I simply wanted to capture the moment.

My visit to Diane von Furstenberg’s, ‘Journey Of A Dress’ exhibit

When I first entered the showroom displaying the 40 years worth of Diane von Furstenberg designs, I was overwhelmed with excitement. I had to do a few laps around the exhibit in order to take in all of the designs. Here are my favorite shots:
