Hot Summer Style: Fab & Fun Jewelry for Now + Later!! Annachich, April Star Davis & Khalama

I love curating jewelry since it’s always about making some sort of style statement. It doesn’t *have* to get statement jewelry. Even when you wear the simplest of earrings and/or necklace it does
Annachich Jewelry is amazing. It’s hand-made in San Francisco. Designer Becky Johnson gets her creative inspiration from her grandmother who was a seamstress.
Johnson takes care to the details just as her grandmother did!

LA Musician Jenni Alpert Talks about Music, Art, Causes She Believes In + Lots More! #Podcast!

One of my favorite PR people happened to reach out to me about the musician I have featured today. I looked at the pitch and immediately opened up several new links and was floored at the sound of her voice. It wasn’t what I usually hear from the current singer/songwriters. Her jazz-informed presentation gives you a bit of modern presentation while still keeping the old school vibe. It’s unique, fun and edgy. She is based in Los Angeles just as I am and despite some disconnects — we finally did connect for this conversation. We started talking… and it was quite unlike most conversations that I have with musicians but fun.

Celebrate National Daiquiri Day with a Hemingway Daiquiri + a Local Haunt to Check Out!

Got this noteworthy news blast from a PR firm (The Jeff Wagner Agency) about National Daquiri Day, July 19. Did you know there was a National Daiquiri Day? I didn’t and I read this with great enthusiasm as I Heart daiquiris– especially frozen ones but that’s another story and cocktail.

Gorgeous Jewelry + Watches to Make Your Summer ( + Beyond) Fashion Statement!

Summer is my favorite time of year. I love the summer warm temperatures, the long days and the fun things you can do in all that time! It’s a time when you can wear more clothing (or less) than normal and play more with accessories to score fashion points. I felt it might be great to curate some jewelry that I thought were a great tonal match for spring/summer 2014.. (I know spring is LONG gone. The idea is for next year as well as other seasons when LBD or outfits of neutrals need some “juice” or bite) . Wherever you see Sobral jewelry, don’t hesitate to buy it because pieces don’t last long in retail stores or online!

Hot Summer Swimwear for Now + Later! Lybethras, Trunkettes & Voda Swim Make Waves!

We are now seriously into summer. And based on this weekend’s reports.. either you want to buy some new swimwear because you didn’t until you saw what all your BFF’s and others were wearing OR you did buy something and find that it looks sort of “meh” or it doesn’t quite fit as well as you would like! Good for you, because now is the time that swimwear goes on sale. Not all brand mind you, but stuff in department stores which you can go through a gazillion swimsuits and find something you like (good luck!) or you can head to your local bathing suit shop and test drive things there. While I can’t guarantee sales at all locations or on all brands, you can find something really interesting.. whether it’s on sale or not.
