I live in LA and yes, it is quite warm in the summer but one of the best things about living in this town is that it generally cools down at night. Living in a casual city, I tend to opt for skinny jeans when I go out, as you can dress them up or down - whenever it's appropriate. And, I love a versatile jacket that I can throw on with a nice outfit or when I'm chilling in yoga pants which is why I love this CottonHood Sherpa Lined Zip Hoodie in Heather Grey.Read More
I recently took an impromptu trip to Kona on the big island of Hawaii and stayed at the Hilton Waikoloa Village. As expected, the island was quite warm and humid. Applying makeup seems almost silly but as a beauty junkie, I always like a climactic challenge when it comes to makeup application. As the day wore on, even my normally dry skin got shiny and oily. That's when my new best friend, blotterazzi came in quite handy.Read More
Hey, hey, hey! I have to say that I scored finding this cute lil' product called the Lip & Cheek Doll Stain by The Body Shop. When I last read about it, it was all the rage, er, perhaps last year, and then I scrambled to find it in stores. I finally came across it on sale for $10 in the Houston airport.Read More

Kicking it off in style at the Palihouse in West Hollywood, I got to attend the Fashion Week El Paseo First Launch Party in LA last week. I was so intrigued and excited as it was co-hosted by Food & Wine Festival Palm Desert so you know the food was amazing!
Not to mention, a devilishly good drink called the Sparkling Stilleto. Just add in Double Cross Vodka, fresh lemon juice, simply syrup, champagne and candied hibiscus flower. Voila!
I got the opportunity to meet one of the designers who made an exclusive appearance - Jim Mullin of JM Couture, who is new to the Southern California scene and debuting his line this year along with opening his flagship store. Very exciting!
The ninth annual Fashion Week El Paseo 2014 starts on March 16th for seven glorious days filled to the brim with fashion, beauty and lifestyle events. Hoping I can finagle my way there for the day and check out a few shows. Check out the gorgeous Joanna Krupa (The Real Housewives of Miami) wearing this beautiful gown by the designer shown here, Michael Costello.
And here's Susan Stein (in the middle) who's fashion editor of Palm Springs Life and right next to her Samantha Coria of Mannfolk Public Relations. (Thanks, Sam!)
Wow, where has the time gone? I've been crazy, busy these days as I've taken on the role of Editorial Director for a beauty website called WISDOM IN BEAUTY. So, as you know with the perks of the job, I got the chance to attend a blogger Tarte event last week at the SLS Hotel.
It was in the veranda area at the hotel fully equipped with New Balance gear for the toning class that was already in session when I arrived. They offered us water in our very own bkr re-usable glass bottle which I am now obsessed with.
I'm very excited to start playing around with the limited-edition summer 2014 products such as the different blushes, bronzing powders, self-tanning lotions and serums and their gorge golden days & sultry nights collector's eye shadow palette. Makes me ready for Miami!
It's getting colder out and what better accessory to have than these rock and roll beauties from Henri Bendel. These Stud Detailed Nappa Gloves have cashmere lining to keep those digits toasty warm and has the custom Henri Bendel snap closure, natch! They're so cool that I am truly channeling my inner Karl Lagerfeld.
I have to say, I'm having a love affair with Bendel's accessories as of late. The handbags are classic yet have these cool embellishments that make it seem coolly unique and the jewelry, well, go ahead - have a peek at my latest necklace purchase. Their Bond St. collection is awesome!
I have always felt that a watch says a lot about a person - a bit of a statement piece. As you may recall, I'm a huge fan of TW Steel and religiously wear my oversized white and rose gold piece. When I saw this sleek silver tone chronograph watch by DKNY, I realized it was "time" to share. Oh boy, that was pretty bad.
This beauty comes in silver (as shown) and gold, depending on what you fancy. I love how modern it looks and almost screams out that it's a man's watch...but, alas, it is not.
