I had a really cool outfit post lined up all about what to wear on New Years Eve and how to wear it..(hence the shiny photo's) But as I was coming to the end of writing it I felt the overwhelming urge to write about my year instead. The good and the bad of it. Not just the great moments on Instagram.. because lets face it looking at all of our Insta's it would seem that we all live rock star lives.

First lets chat Kombucha..

There are those times in life where the universe decides to remind you that you are taking it all too seriously. I was in such a mood when this shoot started...just ask Jason my photographer..

Here's the story..

Well it's official.. L.A. weather is completely Bipolar. Super emotional. A bit testy and constantly from one end of the spectrum to the other. For that reason you gotta LOVE it! This week it's in the 80's last week it was in the 50's. What's a girl to do but just play along.

I was sitting home yesterday.. emailing.. and getting ready for a meeting when my buzzer rang and in walked a man with dozen Georgetown Holiday cupcakes. Hallelujah!!

Okay.. so now that you know I am a bit on the wacky side (well actually I'm pretty sure you guys already knew that).. I give you....

About a month ago in the midst of a super packed day I got dressed, swiped on some bright lipstick grabbed my red carry all and headed out to Malibu for a preview of Wendy Bellissimo's new collection for JCPenney. Now for me this was quite odd. I am a blogger and I do go to lots of previews and events.. but this one was centred around babies? Baby fashion to be exact...and I have to tell you....I fell in love! Plush, luxe gorgeous

When Michael Stars asked me to pick out my five must have items from their super cool seriously luxe Holiday collection I jumped at the chance. Not only am I obsessed with Micheal Stars these days but I have been a fan for years. I can't tell you how many of those metallic baby tee's I owned back in the day.
So Micheal Stars and I partnered up and I have to tell you it was so super hard narrowing it down to five pieces. Plush sweaters, super cool metallic moto jackets, sequins, lace and comfy trousers all make for the perfect gifts for those you love and if you are anything like me.. for yourself.

Cream shadows have always been a favorite of mine..and the latest crop of Metallic cream shadows are beautiful, electrifying and simply off the charts! Pigmented just right to give a gilded look that is buildable and stays put. Come on .. we all hate those clumpy creases that can live on our lids when creams shadows are in use.
All you need is your finger and a little imagination. Sounds dirty I know...
Here's how to achieve this simple yet striking look.
Apply foundation, concealer and
