This week I explored a ton of new places is Los Angeles. Monday night I had dinner at Rivabella, on Wednesday I went out for happy hour at Vinoteca Farfalla, and on Thursday I attended the Topshop opening at The Grove. I love going to new places, or trying new things, and Los Angeles never disappoints.

I don’t always have time to style my long and sometimes frizzy hair. In the morning I’m usually running out of my apartment 10 minutes late to work. I prefer to wear my hair down and curled, but when there is no time there are a few hairstyles that are simple to conquer and will look like you spent hours primping.
Braid hair to the side and pull loose pieces towards the front and top for extra volume
Twist the front of your hair to the back and secure with rubber band
French braid bangs and secure at base of ponytail and wrap remaining hair in a bun
Create a low ponytail and part at rubber band and flip the ponytail through
In my early 20’s I didn’t pay much attention to taking care of my skin. I would sleep with my makeup on, or skip sunscreen and pile on tanning oil at the beach. I’ve learned how important it is to take care of your skin from an early age so you aren’t paying for it later. Here is a roundup of my favorite beauty/skin products that I use on a daily basis.
Finding the right gift for family, significant others, and friends can be stressful around the holidays. Instead of buying expensive gifts this year my friends and I wanted to make gift giving a little more personal and fun so we decided to do a white elephant gift and go to brunch. I have compiled a few of my favorite gifts ranging from $4.00-$145.00 to make gift giving a little easier this season.
It’s my favorite day of the week again! I spent most of this week working, and a couple of evenings catching up with close friends. I’m planning to take it easy this weekend and coordinate an exciting Sunday Funday with a few friends since the weather will be warming up again.
This week I attended the Anna Dello Russo for H&M event. I was at H&M by 9:30am and there were already 45 people in the line ahead of me. I was dying for the luggage, and of course that was the item that was sold out as soon as the store opened. However I did get a couple of great pieces that are adding to my obsession of jeweled snakes!

Over the years I have tried numerous beauty products that claim to soften, smooth, and protect my sensitive skin. I do like to switch up my beauty routine and try new products, but there are some products that I cannot get rid of. These products keep my skin soft and bright, long hair shiny and healthy, eye lashes protected, and nails from chipping.
Nail art has recently become a fashion accessory that keeps getting more elaborate. For Fall 2012 we saw a lot of nail trends on the runway and on the street. I love getting creative with manicured nails, and it adds final touches to any outfit or event!
I have finalized my travel details for summer vacation and can’t wait! A friend and I are traveling from Los Angeles to New York, then its off to Europe– Italy, France, Monaco, and Spain. This week I have complied my favorite items for traveling.
