There's nothing like a fashion date.. I had one with Courtney Capretta last week in her downtown L.A. offices.. I have no idea where I've been but it's been so long since I visited that I didn't even know that the super talented and adorable designer started a new more edgy line beautifully named 10 Corso Colombo in addition to the already amazing Capretta (you may remember the FASHION FRIDAY post I did last year HERE)

For the two years that I have had this blog I have posted thoughts on my birthday that I hope will take me through the year.. This was not one of those years.. This years birthday week was a bit of an awesome whirlwind filled with fun, gifts and food, all ending in a photo shoot produced and shot by me. Phew...organization is definitly not my strogest suit but I did it and managed to have a blast doing it..
So being that there was a lack of a what I like to think of as a heart felt thought provoking post ..I thought I would share the week in Hisptamatic photo's..
Thus my Birthday week in Photo's..
Gifts to myself.. Everyone should self gift on their birthday.. Yay you made it another year unscathed..and gifts from others..
This little Fuji darling is my new baby..

Last week at 9am I journeyed to the beautiful Soho House for a breakfast slash exclusive viewing held by Montblanc. You know anything involving good food and I am there without blinking an eye. Of course the prospect of being amongst the first to view the new MontBlanc collection also helped.

No matter how you sum it up we're always going to be on the quest for the most amazing products. As humans it's in our blood.. And lets face it.. there will always be the constant cycle of products out doing each other for greatness.. If you are anything like me the cycle goes a little something like this..
Find the perfect product.. Hair gets totally sick of it... Find the perfect product.. Fall in love with said product.. Use said product for a year.. Hair is looking better than ever.. Said product changes the formula or goes clear out of business...ugh!
Okay enough of my ranting...
I have been lucky enough to have two amazing companies send me two amazing packages with tons of amazing products..
Let chat about them..
Wen. If you were reading Stuff She Likes last year you know that Wen is one of my all time favorites.. It literally brought my curls back from the brink of extinction..
Other products I am using non stop fro Wen.

Yesterday was one of those days where... work lead to drinks. drinks lead to food. Food lead to thinking about new ink. And thinking about new ink lead to getting new ink..

I am super excited about this particular FASHION FRIDAY because I decided to go light again and I really wanted to share it with you.
I was invited by the Rossano Ferretti Hair Spa in Beverly Hills to have a manicure, cut and amp; color.. I was already planing to throw some highlights back in my hair...so this was a welcome invitation....and I am uber happy with it. I wanted my hair to look more sun kissed than highlighted and that's exactly what colorist Tamar did.. But more on that next week when I do a full post for you guys..
for now.. FASHION FRIDAY..

For me ..getting new make up is almost like scoring a new awesome pair of shiny shoes..okay maybe a little less fabulous
new face = happy place
Two newbies that I am absolutely in lust with since I got them..
Sharing is caring
Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Kuala Lumpur.. it's a delicious pinkish peachy gold sitting right next to an awesome berry. So many lovely possibilities for summer and fall with these two beauties.

For me summer time is romper time.. and although it is not quite summer yet. 21 days to go exactly.. I say pull out your rompers..denim cut offs.. floral Maxi's.. polarized shades...and tanning lotion..make the change from foundation to Tinted Moisturizer..get your fresh summer hair cut..and prepare your self for the season of ice cream!
Yes I just said the season of ice cream..I'm always thinking about food!
