Stop Straps In Their Tracks


, ,

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!

DIY: Exfoliating Edition

If you turn to your kitchen, it only takes a few ingredients, such as baking soda, sugar, and ground coffee, to create your very own exfoliating scrub that won’t leak into our oceans and contaminate our food supply. 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’s Beverly & Frozen Collections


, , , ,


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…  ;-)

Ok, so I was introduced to Gilded Cells about 2 weeks ago when I was attending an event that they were promoting at.  I left with a full size sample of the Under Eye Multi-Complex Serum and I am officially obsessed.  I saw immediate results in an area I’ve battled most of my life…under-eye bags and dark circles.  I can’t wait to try the rest of their line!




GILDED CELLS is a clinical skincare brand delivering anti-aging innovation that utilizes the cells own molecular machinery to not only stop aging but to reverse it as well.  GILDED CELLS was born from a group of scientists at the California Institute of Quantitative Biosciences (qb3) in San Francisco, California, USA.


Utilizing compounds implicated in inhibiting cell signaling pathways that regulate cell aging and senescence, we developed enhanced formulations that not only increase skin vitality, repair age associated damage and skin texture but our formulations initiate the processes that reverse aging.   Our biotechnology delivers unprecedented, scientifically validated anti-aging benefits to the skin and can be used by the most sensitive of skin types.

GILDED CELLS is a member of the California Institute of Quantitative Biosciences (qb3) and the Janssen Innovator Labs.  Proudly made in the USA.

Sea Of Pearls

unnamed (1)

I has the incredible opportunity to interview, Geneveive Cruz, designer of Sea Of Pearls. I am in love with the casual and laid back feel of her designs.  They are the perfect essentials that you will want to wear everyday.  You can dress them up or down without compromising your comfort.  ;-)  Here’s the interview!

Q:  Why did you decide to become a fashion designer? Fashion runs in my family.

A:  My whole family from my mother to my father to my aunts and uncles are in the fashion industry.  My parents owned a clothing factory and I always tell people as a joke that I was born in a Factory.  So long story short, it’s kind of in my blood…  LOL

Q:  What does fashion mean to you?

A:  It’s all I breathe…  I wake up thinking fashion and go to sleep thinking fashion.  I believe that fashion is what you make of it. I don’t feel there should be rules.  I believe fashion trends fade and true fashion is what you make of it and should make you feel GREAT!

Q:  What is your favorite part about being a fashion designer?

A:  The creation process.  I love starting all my collections with a theme and everything just ­flows from color, styles, all the way to the way we style it.

Q:  Where does your inspiration come from for the designs you create?

A:  Inspiration is everywhere.  Music, movies, family, people in the streets, but the true inspiration is my daughter.  She has always been my toughest customer, LOL!

Q:  What sets your designs apart from the rest of the industry?

A:  PASSION, but again everyone should have that.  I believe that every brand is unique.

Q:  How do you select the materials you use?

A:  Made in the USA with the biggest knitters around fabric must be soft and super comfortable.

Q:  What do you do to ensure the durability of your products?

A:  We garment dye every piece to assure softness and wear.

Q:  What advice would you give somebody who wants to work as a fashion designer in the future?

A:  Experience.  Always try to intern and work with someone who can really teach you and guide you before you try to branch out on your own.  And if you are sensitive and soft spoken, this is FOR sure the wrong industry for you.

Q:  How would you describe your personal style?

A:  Super Casual with a edge.  I’m the most happiest with a Tee, jeans and great pair of shoes.

Q:  What are your plans for the future?

A:  Everyday is a another goal.  I set short term goals all the day, so when I accomplish them I feel like I’m doing something right.  Plans are for Every Woman to feel like a PEARL!  :)

It’s like I got this music in my mind…


, , ,


My dad is a woodworking genius and has built tons of amazing things, such as furniture, toys, wine racks, decorative pieces, etc…  But, this one of my faves!  It’s a stand and acoustic speaker for your iPhone!  It has amazing sound amplification with no electricity necessary.  This handcrafted dock is the perfect accessory for home, office or wherever.  The sound from the iPhone’s built-in speakers gets sent through channels in the wood and out through two large holes in the front.  It is a completely power-free amplifier that can be endlessly customized to suit your style.  So cool and I’m so obsessed!!!  ;-)
