Easy DIY Fall Decorations

One of the many elements I cherish about the autumn season is creating easy DIY fall decorations. I’ll start by scanning the Internet for inspiration. Then I’ll head to the craft store to pick up supplies and invite my girlfriends over for a “DIY party.” I’ll have potpourri simmering on the stove and serve apple cider and donuts. It’s an entertaining girls night in and allows us a chance to catch up while creating one-of-a-kind fall crafts. This year I’ve come up with a list of 25 projects that have inspired me.

cosmetics and beauty

My mornings begin with a cup of coffee while sitting at my vanity getting ready for the day. My job in fashion requires me to look put together at all times so I make sure that the products I choose are going to last. Often I’ll go straight from work to an event with just enough time to do a quick touch up. These are my can‘t live without cosmetics and beauty products that I buy over and over again. 1.

Lunchtime Chemical Peels

A few years ago I went to my aesthetician because I was suffering from a bad breakout. I assumed I was immune to blemishes since I never had to deal with these issues as a teen. Not only did I need to treat the breakout, but I had leftover purple marks I was looking to get rid of. The aesthetician suggested IPLs which I had already tried, and they are super expensive and only helped temporarily. She she also recommended other things that I could do at home that weren’t invasive: lunchtime chemical peels, derma-rollering, serums, and LED light therapy. I would space them outRead More →

Secret Rosé Garden

I recently visited The Secret Rosé Garden, a pop-up cafe at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. I‘m obsessed with rosé and roses so as you can imagine I was ecstatic when I came across this limited-time event on Instagram and I knew I had to visit right away! This elegant installation was created to celebrate the hotels 90th anniversary, and by celebrate I mean they’ve recreated the famous Garden Lounge for our generation to enjoy. If you didn’t know, the Garden Lounge was a fixture of the hotel during the 1960s and 1970s. The Secret Rosé Garden is situated on the rooftop and features stunning viewsRead More →

Favorite TV Shows of All-Time

Even though we live in Los Angeles where the weather is nice most of the year, during the fall we sometimes just want to stay in, prepare a cup of hot cocoa and do some binge watching. We each chose our five favorite TV shows of all-time and weirdly enough, none of us picked the same one. So when you’re searching for something to watch this season, you have 15 options to choose from! I didn’t watch Oz while it was on TV; years later I caught up with it on HBO GO. I’m a huge fan of The Wire, so when I found outRead More →

Exotic Dishes In and Around DTLA

One of my favorite parts about living in Southern California is the abundance of incredible food. From fine dining to taco stands, we have it all. With so many hungry foodies in this city, there is a constant demand for new food concepts, so there’s never a shortage of fresh restaurants to try. When a cluster of hot restaurants open up, my favorite thing to do is what I call a dinner hop; think a food version of bar hopping. Because Los Angeles is so vast, I like to choose one neighborhood and dine at two to three restaurants in the same night, enjoying aRead More →

Nothing thrills me more than a change in season because it means going shopping for new clothing and accessories and changing up my wardrobe based on the upcoming trends.

grilled shrimp carbonara

When summer nears its end and the sweltering days give way to cool and breezy evenings, I like to plan meals that I can enjoy outdoors. Usually that means setting my outdoor dining table and firing up my grill to barbecue a light meal of meats and veggies, but lately I’ve been craving carbs. I decided to satisfy my craving with a spin on one of my favorite pasta dishes, Grilled Shrimp Carbonara. Grilled Shrimp Carbonara is a classic pasta dish from Rome consisting of just a few simple ingredients: egg, Pecorino Romano cheese, cured pork, and pasta. I chose to get creative with myRead More →
