Zaarly: Innovative Delegating

Zaarly is an innovative site where delegating things you don't have time to do, or buy, in a new and innovative way. If you are a parent this is the site you've been looking for. Zaarly.com (@zaarly) is a site where consumers (like me) can find help from companies or independent contractors (like me) for anything you can think of. For example I went onto the site and chose the Los Angeles area. I … [Read more...]

California Wine Club For The Holidays

The final shipment of my 3-month subscription to California Wine Club arrived just in time for Thanksgiving. It's sad to say good-bye to California Wine Club (@cawineclub), but alas all good things must come to an end, and so I bid adieu to my Premier Club membership.

I’m Addicted to Dolce & Gabbana Eyeliner

Last year on a whim of retail therapy, I bought myself the Dolce & Gabanna eyeliner. It is a really dark brown that has the staying power the likes of which I have never seen. The Dolce & Gabbana Crayon Intense in Coffee was a Best Splurge in Allure magazine's "Best of Beauty" October 2009. I cannot agree more. The beautiful color goes on strong, but then as a huge bonus the other end has … [Read more...]

Iceburg Lotus: Nicole by OPI

Jewel tone nail polish has hit big in the drugstores and salons. Nicole by OPI (@NicoleByOPI) in Iceburg Lotus is no exception. The teal green with some glitter while be metallic.

B Is For Boots: #FashionFriday

That's right, you heard it here first; B is for boots. It is also for beautiful and bold, which are other characteristics of a great boot. I am going to just lay out my latest obsession. I am boot obsessed right now. All kinds of boots too. I never liked booties, and this year I find myself gravitating toward them, and don't even own a pair for myself. Oh and I almost forgot all of the ones … [Read more...]

Trend Alert: Lovely Lace

I really love lace.  It has a romantic feel to it, and just looks inherently vintage to me (and I love vintage too). Lace is pretty big this season, and will likely be big well into spring next year.  I found some great lacey pieces of clothing and other accessories that I am coveting in a big way, and might make my own... Lace Trench Coat? Why Not. BCBG has an absolute AMAZING assortment of … [Read more...]

Surface's products are all earth conscious and made from sustainable ingredients. They work hard to educate … [Read more...]

Enjoying Wine Club Month 2

A box with 2 bottles of wine shows up to my house, and I feel like a wine aficionado. Turns out. Thanks to California Wine Club (@cawineclub) I am enjoying my 2nd month of The Premier Club wine subscription. I thought that the 1st month was exciting, but getting the 2nd month was indulgent.
