Just a few years ago, a lot of people would consider sneakers to be a part of their workout attire, or what they’d wear to run errands in on a lazy Sunday. Labels like Adidas and Puma, that were big in the ‘80s and ‘90s are back. Now new designers are emerging and capitalizing in on the trend. Not long ago, sneakers wouldn’t have been seen in most office settings, now in many they’re considered acceptable work attire—if worn correctly. They’ve been seen at NYFW, on the red carpet, and on trendsetters and celebrities as everyday wear. Here are some examples of how to look polished, andRead More →

flying back home

In December like millions of others, I’ll be flying back home for the holidays. Take it from someone who’s had her fair share of flight drama, like a flight delayed overnight, canceled because of bad weather, luggage lost twice (one of the times it took four days to receive!), and lost my license the day before flying…that I’ve learned what and what not to pack in my carry on bag. A good book.  The Girls, $16.20 Makeup bag / samples. Usually when I buy makeup, they give free samples. I save those and pack them in my carry on. Makeup bag Sephora Collection, $26 Face wipes. Clinique, $10Read More →

I think it all started with my love for the movie Marie Antoinette. The scene where she’s eating all the desserts, made me want cake, éclairs and macaroons ASAP. I had heard of Bottega Louie, and one day I was walking out of the apartment I had just moved into, and saw it was a few blocks down the street and decided to walk in. OMG…I became obsessed! It takes a lot of self-control to not walk in every time I pass by and order one of their desserts or buy a box of macaroons. Last year I bought my sister and my mom aRead More →

Fall

Growing up on the east coast, fall has always been one of my favorite seasons. The leaves turning, the nights starting to get cooler, sitting by the fireplace, knowing that Christmas is around the corner… Fall in Los Angeles, is quite different. As I type, it’s currently 76 degrees outside. I still try to take what I love about fall and make new traditions. Here’s a mix of things I adopted back in Massachusetts (like, cold nights binging on Netflix and football games), along with new things (farmers markets, Urth Caffe pumpkin pie, and new recipes). 1. Bronzer. Just because the sun goes down atRead More →

A little while ago my friends and I reserved tickets to The Broad museum in DTLA. Artists featured there include Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Ed Ruscha, Kara Walker, Christopher Wool, Jeff Koons, Cy Twombly, Joseph Beuys, Barbara Kruger,  Cindy Sherman, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, plus many more. We weren’t able to get into the infinity mirrored room. Hopefully next time. Here are some of my favorites… On the second floor they have a gift shop that sells coffee table books, games, ornaments, jewelry, tea cups, pictures, and other cool things. We then walked across the street to the Moca museum and had lunch at Lemonade. The have THE BEST truffle mac & cheese! XoXo,Read More →

Working in fashion PR, I never leave home without my essentials. All of these things are either in my work bag or in my desk. I can’t count the amount of times I’ve needed each and everyone of these. Here’s the list… 1. Post-its. I’m always jotting down notes on these, sticking them all over the office. I buy them in bulk. Post-it® Notes, $20.99 2. Safety Pins. We do a lot of photoshoots and sometimes the clothes don’t fit the models how we’d like. These come in handy in hiding that. $2.49 3. Laptop. I bring my laptop to work and all my work is done on it. It makes itRead More →
