Kelly Lynch & Carlota Espinosa of LACaKe

 

This week on Wynne's World we meet the ultra chic, beautiful and accomplished founders of LACaKe, Carlota Espinosa and Kelly Lynch. If you aren't yet following LACaKe on IG you must, although prepare yourself for west coast envy. Their photos of fashion, lifestyle and beauty will have longing for California sunshine and laid-back LA style. 

Heidi: How did you initially meet and decide to start LACaKe?

Kelly & Carlota: We met at a political event in Hollywood and became great friends almost instantly after realizing we had very similar tastes and a ton of common interests. We love to share and are both often asked for advice from friends on fitness, skincare, fashion, décor, entertainment, etc. We decided to join forces to create our fun and informative California-centric IG lifestyle platform LACaKe.
