A Momma Getaway at the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire

December 4, 2011

Every once in a while as parents we need a reminder to take care of ourselves. We spend our lives day in and day out catering to our families needs in one way or another, not recognizing or taking a moment out of the day to devote to ourselves. At least that’s me. Planning vacations […]

Fashion Week: Backstage at Rachel Roy

March 9, 2011

A couple of weeks back, I had the chance to check out a couple of shows from the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, 2011. I don’t have that many opportunities to squeeze the shows around preschool and everything else going on, but I definitely jump at the chance when one comes up. I absolutely love the energy […]

Winterizing my Wardrobe with Nate Berkus

December 20, 2010

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to appear in a Nate Berkus show segment with Dannielle Kyrillos called “Instant Wardrobe Updates”.

Hair and Taxidermy

October 25, 2009

I afford myself few luxuries. I don’t get regular mani’s and pedi’s, I don’t have an esthetician, and I don’t shop very often (even though I LOVE it). In fact, I think the last time I owned a pair of boots was in 2002. I do like nice things though, I’m more of a quality […]
