Lady In Red

, ,

Hi everyone, happy Saturday!  ;-)  Here are some pics from a promo photo-shoot I did in Laguna Beach, CA.  Another beautiful day in Southern California!  Red is my favorite color and I love, love, love this hat.  Red is definitely an attention grabber and a color that should be worn with confidence.  I also feel a little happier when wearing red, like I can’t help but smile.  :-)

“Puttin’ On The Ritz” at THE RITZ-CARLTON, LAGUNA NIGUEL.  I enjoyed true California luxury while doing a travel photo shoot.  The hotel overlooks the Pacific ocean with breathtaking views and a great surf spot called, Salt Creek.  It was such a beautiful day with bright blue skies and crystal like water.  I’m in love with this location!

Founded in Italy in 1972, Il Fornaio Authentic Italian Restaurants are located throughout the United States in California, Seattle, Las Vegas, Denver, and Reston, Virginia.  Canaletto, where I dined, is located in Fashion Island in Newport Beach, CA.  The menu, which you can find here, is absolutely AMAZING!  I was served a 10 course meal, so I pretty much had a taste of everything.  ;-)  I was even lucky enough to have the General Manager, Antonio Bevacqua, serve me personally.  Such a great evening!

Saint Regis Hotel (17)

 

I’ve always admired women who have a simple elegance about them.  Put together, but not too overdone, with a carefree spirit.  This was the theme for my shoot at the St. Regis in Monarch Beach, CA.  This 5-Star resort is the perfect retreat for anyone seeking a little R&R and the weather couldn’t have been better!

With the Victoria’s Secret fashion show airing this week, I’ve got bras on my mind…  ;-)  Pair the right bra with your outfit you to avoid looking messy!  Leave the house with the confidence of knowing that your straps will not be making an appearance, until you want them to.  ;-)

Have a great weekend!

Here are three amazing DIY scrubs. Scrubs that contain olive oil are moisturizing, so there’s no need to apply any additional moisturizer afterwards.

Camille Wood lit up the runway at the Black Tie CEO Club’s “Diamonds are Forever” party at Aston Martin of San Diego on November 18th, 2014.  Out of her desire to further the cause for abused and abandoned dogs in San Diego, she has donated one of her Beverly Collection dresses to be auctioned off in a silent auction.  The dress retails in the $3000 range, and out of respect for the dress, bidding will begin at $700. The material is Dolce Gabana, and most of the dress is hand-made. This dress graced the covers of November’s Fine Magazine.

AND…..  I had the privilege to walk the runway!  See if you can find me…  ;-)
