Packing Tips: How To Pack Your Jewelry

I’m often amazed when I hear about women packing lightly, or even watching Billy throw a few essentials into his suitcase the day of travel. I’m not someone who’s ever been able to go on a trip with just a few necessities. This week I’ll be leaving for a three-week trip to the east coast for a family reunion/beach vacation. About a week before I start to plan what I’m going to bring with me. Packing for a vacation can be very overwhelming. Over the years I’ve accumulated a lot of travel miles which has taught me how to simplify my process. Yes, I still “overpack,”Read More →

Pam & Gela Olive Green Cargo Pants; Nasty Gal Bodysuit; Topshop Moto Jacket

I have a not-so-good habit of buying something and letting it sit in my closet until I create the ideal outfit and find the perfect place to wear it. For instance, I purchased these olive green Pam & Gela cargo pants a while ago and forgot about them. As I was looking through my wardrobe trying to find something to wear to an event I was invited to, they jumped out at me. I paired them with a black bodysuit, black lace up stiletto booties and a faux leather moto jacket. To accessorize, I wore silver jewelry and used a metallic leather clutch which addedRead More →

Bohemian Style Maxi Dress

What I love about Sundays is getting dressed up and heading to brunch. I’ll splurge and order a dish I wouldn’t typically eat during the week—it usually involves a ton of butter, sugar and syrup. When choosing where to dine Billy and I have a few favorite spots, one of them being Perch in downtown Los Angeles. This trendy French inspired bistro sits high in the sky and has some of the most incredible dishes and cocktails. Once we’re finished dining, we’ll head up to the rooftop bar for a drink and a spectacular view of the L.A. skyline. My style staple for spring andRead More →

New Beauty Trends to Try This Spring!

When it comes to seasonal trends, I usually put more effort into updating my closet than I do with my beauty routine. This year I did some research and looked for new beauty trends, which lead me to discover so many unique looks I can‘t wait to try. I started with makeup inspiration and fell in love with colorful eyeliner, dewy skin, bronzed cheeks, and rose gold eye makeup. Next up was looking for new hair trends. My go-to style consists of stepping out of the shower, applying leave in conditioner and serum, and then letting my hair air dry. This creates effortless beachy waves,Read More →

Spring 2019 Rainbow Trends

It’s been freezing here in L.A—I’m talking 30’s and 40’s, hats and gloves kind of cold. Then throw in the days of endless rain and the sunnier months ahead can’t come soon enough. To get into the spring spirit, I’ve been shopping for transitional pieces and eyeing the upcoming summer trends.
