It became so long that I actually was embarrassed to make the appointment. Brighter.com made it super easy … [Read more...]

Career Woman, Mother & Fashionista All In One

During the summer I'm constantly reminded of the most important thing my mother ever taught me. While there are so many words of wisdom her diligence in protecting my uber white skin when out in the sun was unmatched. My friends made fun of me because my mom wouldn't let me go out without SPF 15 (the highest then) on my skin. I wasn't allowed to sunbathe or "tan" because my mom was worried I'd … [Read more...]

My Week With The Acura ILX

ILX Cockpit

In Los Angeles NOTHING is 5 … [Read more...]
