New York Fashion Week

I love living in Los Angeles because of the warm, year round climate, but I will admit I literally anticipate the arrival of the fall season all year.  Fall is my favorite season because for me it stands for sweater weather, pumpkin spice lattes, sugary scented candles, and a little reminder of home.  Being so accustomed to the warm Southern California temperatures, the second the temperature slightly drops, I know this is the perfect excuse to go shopping for a new fall wardrobe!! This year fall trends are inspired by New York Fashion Week fall 2017; pantsuits, fancy feathers, spliced tracksuits, corduroy, soft leather, andRead More →

Skinny Bitch Pizzas are gluten-free, and have a cauliflower crust, they’re made with turkey pepperoni, fresh veggies, skim mozzarella or you can opt for vegan “cheese”. Choose from five types of 12″ pies, like “The Marissa” (my favorite), which is made with mozzarella, tomatoes, garlic, andRead More →

NYFW Spring 2017

One of my favorite things about spring aside from the longer days and warmer weather is putting my dark, big and bulky winterish clothing—(I live in LA), in the back of my closet, and putting my light and colorful wardrobe front and center. This is also a perfect time to decide what you no longer want (that’s a whole other topic), but more importantly what you need. Inspired by NYFW Spring 2017, vibrant stripes, trench coats, slogans and graphics, shoulder details, sportswear, seaside stripes and nautical inspired, nudes and tans, floral prints, iridescence, and bright and pastel solid colors are what you’ll be seeing a lotRead More →
