Editor’s Letter – Abundantly Autumn Issue 2 Vol. 2
Editor in Chief Cece Woods considers herself the “accidental activist”.…
As the temperatures start to dip into a west coast version of winter, locals begin to prepare for cozy long nights anticipating the holiday season – which as we know, will be wildly different from the holidays of seasons past.
Our cover story, the fiercly popular actress and British gem Patsy Palmer, inspires us with her festive jewel toned hues and a dose of her daily wellness regimen – much needed advice during a hectic holiday season.
The British beauty doesn’t stop there – our next feature, English model and designer, Catalina Guirado, is interviewed by our very own English rose, Beauty and Lifestyle Editor Tara Owens. Guirado talks about her incredibly chic equestrian scarves (no horse required to sport these beauties!) and her collaboration with the Tracy Park Gallery to exhibit her late father, Juan Antonio Guirado’s art. It is the first time the Guirado Estate is releasing paintings on the market with a gallery.
Malibu is well-known for our horse loving community and no one is loved more in that circle than local icon Gina McCloskey. Contributor Amelia Rose Simpson profiles this beloved member of the community.
Uber entrepeneur and longtime Malibuite,
Greg Alterman, is back in the game after taking a
hiatus from his next -evel cold pressed juice brand, Juice Served Here, which is now making its way back to a
grocery-store-wellness-outlet near you in early 2022.
Editor Tara Owens, who recently created the Stranger Flavours (spelled the British way) podcast as an alternative and more personable approach to her editorial skills, interviews iconic American actor – and of course a Malibu resident for decades – Michael Madsen, star of cult films Resevoir Dogs, Kill Bill and more.
And…who better to usher us into comfort food season than Malibu Seaside Chef Gina Clarke who shares her hearty Sausage, White Bean and Swiss Chard Autumn Soup recipe which features fresh local ingredients – always good for the soul.
Speaking of good for the soul, the efforts of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Homeless Outreach Team in collaboration with the Lost Hills Station, Malibu City officials and county officials has made a significant impact in our community as we approach Santa Ana wind season and the third anniversary of the Woolsey Fire.
We are “Abundantly Autumn” Malibu. Good vibes all around.

Editor in Chief Cece Woods considers herself the “accidental activist”. Having spent most her childhood on sands of Zuma Beach, Cece left Southern California in her early 20’s, but it was only a matter of time before she returned to the idyllic place that held so many wonderful memories from her youth. In 2006, she made the journey back to Malibu permanently, the passion to preserve it was ignited. In 2012, Cece became involved in local environmental and political activism at the urging of former husband Steve Woods, a resident for more than 4o years. Together, they were involved in many high-profile environmental battles including the Malibu Lagoon Restoration Project, Measure R, Measure W, and more. Cece founded influential print and online media publications, 90265 Magazine in 2013 highlighting the authentic Malibu lifestyle, and The Local Malibu, an online news media site with a strategic focus on environmental and political activism. In the summer of 2018, Cece broke multiple global stories including the law enforcement cover-up in the Malibu Creek State Park Shootings, and is considered by major news media as a trusted authority on Malibu.
