Ambassador: Fall in Love with Maria Sharapova


Summer is winding down, and Maria Sharapova is eagerly anticipating the arrival of autumn. Here, the international tennis sensation and Manhattan Beach resident shares the top five things she’s looking forward to this Fall.


1. Blue Skies
I can’t wait to hit the Pacific Coast Highway in a convertible with the top down and wind in my hair. I’m lucky to have won a 911 at this year’s Porsche Open in Stuttgart, Germany, and when I’m home I just love to hop in and drive. It’s very freeing.

2. Tabula Rasa Essentials
This store is on Manhattan Ave., one of the main streets in Manhattan Beach. I could live in this store! They have the most unique gifts. I can buy for friends or for my home.


3. Celebrating Sugarpova
It’s my company’s one-year anniversary, and to celebrate we launched a Sugarpova accessories collection in collaboration with Henri Bendel. Our lip logo is on everything from T-shirts to earrings to ponytail holders. I’m excited to sport the collection this Fall. It’s fun and whimsical.

4. SusieCakes
My must-have is the red velvet cupcake. There is nothing like it. I always stop by Susie’s on my way home from any trip.

5. Reading at the beach
I’m currently working on a building project, so any architectural book I can get my hands on, I’m loving. Frank Lloyd Wright is one of my favorite architects.
