Downtown Abbey

OK, so I'm a bit slow when it comes to loving this show, and I never really had the time to dedicate to 2-hour long episodes. But what happened this week, which rarely happens is I found some time to veg out and relax. After spending a good amount of ...

Tablet Stand for keeps!

I've been remiss with my posts this week. That crap with me not taking my blog as seriously stops today! I know many of you look to see what I obsess about, and perhaps these items will end up on a TV appearance, so you can see them in action. Well ...

Drama with Hats

ok this is my last post about David and Young hats. I couldn't resist because, I mean look at the pink, floppy fabulousness! This isn't a color that goes with EVERYTHING, but no lie, it's close. I make it work with almost everything. I mean who doesn't want to strut ...

Day 3 – Hat goes Floppy

Listen, dedicating myself to wearing all these different hats this week has been challenging. I mean, I've put myself in a position to use these hats, with the right cute outfit, while running errands, and 'glowing' like a 300 lb gorilla with her eye on a banana and a rainforest ...

Summer Party Must-Haves

Throwing a party and enjoying the outdoors with friends and family? You'll want to look at these suggestions to know what's new with Summer Entertaining. I am dying over the Pizzeria Pronto!

Day 2 in hats

I loved the nautical hat, but I need an everyday hat to walk my girls. What girls? These special ladies.  I found this David and Young hat and popped it on. It is miles better than my other visor/cap - ...

Day 1 in hats

this week, I'm focusing my efforts on some hats. That's right. We are smack dab in the middle of summer and I am looking for a new lid to accompany me to Vegas to stave off those harsh rays from my face while I prematurely age the rest of my ...

The One I Love

Another night, another premiere. This time, I covered an indie & Sundance Film darling, THE ONE I LOVE. Ok, I’m going to level with you. The premiere took place at the Vista Theater, a historic theater that has cement hands and feet imprint much like the Graumann’s in Hollywood. It also ...

Entertainment Wrap-Up

All, I've been lucky enough to work for two high profile events - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Premiere and Orange Is The New Black panel at Directors Guild of America. It was awesome. First off, let me say that I was quite surprised at how many people said Megan Fox was ...

Too! Blue Dot for Target

Shopping high end at Target Clearance makes my living room! I’ve been itching to switch things up in my living room for too long to remember. A couple months ago, I switched the orientation of the big pieces of furniture, and WOW, now I don’t feel like I need to move. ...

Flowers guaranteed to last 6 months!

We all know how fresh flowers can easily transform a space. We see them in designer homes. We see them at parties. We see them in every aspect of our lives. However, I hate seeing them die and cleaning out the vases in my house, especially if I know the bouquet ...

Rob Lowe. Nuf Said

Listen, this pic is a couple weeks old. But I've never shared it with you all until today. And I realize that's lazy of me because IT'S ROB LOWE. I met the wonderfully kind and generous Rob Lowe at the SEX TAPE movie premiere. As big of a star as Rob ...

Cancel that Noise!

I’ve been in the market for a solid set of Noise Cancelling headphones for a few years now. I decided to bite the bullet and instead of saving my pennies for something solid, I bought a lower-end pair from Costco. They were from Able Planet and less than $100. Now ...

Loving LA Businesses!

I'm in love. I wish it were something meaningful like a new man in my life; or a new dog I've rescued - however the ladies of the house, Stella & Lulu would have words (!!!!!). But it's a bit more useful and a lot more flexible. It's Kuu Collection's ...

Creating a Healthy Habit

Many of you know that I'm really into getting back into shape. I've been really slacking from the gym since March for many personal reasons. And for the first time, I'm coming clean about them. March was a tough month for me. Specifically, early March was wrought with loss. I lost Moose. ...

Summer in LA – Getty Center

I remember Friday and Saturday nights were strictly for clubs and bars in Hollywood. That was then, now, I enjoy spending my weekends soaking in the LA scenery - the city lights, art, culture and music. And summer in LA is one of the best times to enjoy ...

Fashion Trucks

We've all heard of food trucks, but looks like fashion's getting in on the game! This happening and hot in LA —(various locations) These vehicles are bedecked with clothing, accessories and footwear. Among the top contenders are Le Fashion Truck often parked near FIGat7th in Downtown L.A., Runaway Runaway with twin ...

Summer style

For the summer I'm lucky enough to have shown some great styles on KEYT Fox Santa Barbara! If you're looking to get on the summer trends, make sure you have items that are drenched in color. For instance, for the KEYT segment, I bathe myself in a MissGuided neon separate ...

Shop My Closet – Wool!

Most of us are struggling to get through the heat, but in So. Cal, we are enjoying the 'June Gloom'. That's sweet sweet gloom before the onslaught of hot heat. And NO, this is not the 'dry heat', LA gets humid. So that means for me to shop in my ...

Crane & Canopy duvet

Many of you know I have an odd ovsession with bedding. I’m one of those girls who makes her bed every morning, and changes out the duvet every month to freshen the room’s look. I have too many duvets to name, and was elated when Crane & Canopy sent me a ...

Buck Naked Soap

Not only am I a HUGE fan of the name, but I am also really loving Buck Naked Soap Company. I didn’t know anything about this company, but low and behold, one day my manager sends over a box of amazingly aromatic goodies from Buck Naked. Not being a huge ...

A lesson in Awesome I learned at LAX

I don’t mean to be a surly passenger, and I have to be obnoxious for a moment and say I’m not sure how I stayed uncharacteristically cool after having my first flight cancelled, being rerouted to another airport, then experiencing a 4 hour delay, but today’s flight to Denver from ...

Belts make the look!

I'm not gonna lie. This dress is pretty cute on its own. However, this is a cheapie dress I got on clearance from Nordstrom and wore on THE TALK. I think it set me back a cool $35. At that price point, you shouldn’t expect much more than a tiny elastic ...

Shop your closet – I found lace shorts!

Like most women and metrosexual men, I love wearing beautiful things, especially beautiful things that make my good and bad parts look like good lil bits. However, keeping up with all the trends, and constantly supplying my wardrobe with items shiny enough to look decent on TV can get costly. ...

Cate Blanchett wows me!

At the Women in Film event last week, I got to rub elbows with some of Hollywood’s hottest actresses. And I met my idol, and almost everyone’s favorite of the night, Cate Blanchett. One thing that was a surprising constant on ...

Lazy Saturday Style

Listen, my work attire is a bit ‘much’ sometimes, even for me. I’m usually putting on some sorry of cocktail attire, waaaay too much make-up to look ‘natural’ on camera, and some very high heels. Did you see that picture of me in front of that disgustingly hot BMW i8? ...

The jewelry maker

Many of you know me as a Lifestyle Expert, designer, amateur chef, and all around trouble maker. But did you know this trouble maker also enjoys melting down silver pellets and creating cool jewelry? Did I just blow your mind? No? Good, because you’ll need that brain to put in ...

Summer Dress

When I first saw this dress, i didn't think that much of it. I mean, it’s blue with little clouds. Seems infantile, no? But with the side pockets, puckering, spaghetti straps, and $10 price tag, I thought, well this little gal has come this far, she deserves a try-on at the ...

Sullivan and Son Set Visit

It’s the second year in a row that I went to visit TBS show Sullivan and Son on the WB Lot. The show is currently shooting their third season. That’s a THIRD season. What a feat. The cast were super humble and adore their fans, often live tweeting live with ...

THE TALK Baby Shower Show!

Set your DVRs everyone. Tomorrow is the day that THE TALK hosts its annual Million Dollar Baby Shower show! And this year, things are being kicked up to 1.25 million dollars worth of giveaways for an audience of expectant mothers. Boom! Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler and ...

Giada opens new restaurant in Vegas

guys, if you love her everyday Italian recipes, now you can eat them just as the celebrity chef herself would make in her home at GIADA, the newly opened 2nd story restaurant of Giade De Laurentiis. When I was in Vegas last ...

Summer is here!

Ok so officially we are still in spring, however when temps reach 90 degrees, I say it is clearly summer. And I’m glad you’re here lady, because I have a lot of brightly colored clothes that would just look gauche if worn in the winter. As you may remember from my Neon ...

Pretty Little Liars 100th Episode Celebration

I was lucky enough to cover the Pretty Little Liars 100th Episode Party for OTRC Saturday. Here's what you won't see in my story: On the rooftop of W Hotel, once you get off the elevator, you're greeted by black corridor and A standing there. If you're unfamiliar with the show, ...

Glam Glow

The way Hollywood talks about this product, you'd think it's the second coming of Christ. Because of such phenomenal reviews and a whole lotta hot air, I decided I need to take this product out for a swing. Let's start with the glam packaging. Talk about making a girl feel sexy ...

Neon Pink Skirt

I was on THE TALK today for their Baby Shower Show. Because the show has so many products and moving parts, we do a pre-tape. That means we do the show like it is live, and put it on tape. I'll talk more about the show this week, but this ...

Modern Family magic

Probably one of my favorite sitcoms on the air now had their press wedding celebration on the Fox Lot in LA tonight. And my treat was to meet the ...

Work Wear

Headed to The Talk today to bring some great classic Mother's Day gift ideas! And what to wear to rehearsal? I'm really digging bright pants for spring. Pair with cool ink blot sweater for funk and whammo I'm out the door! Usually I'm not a fan of pairing unfitted on ...

Weekend BBQ outfit

  There’s no denying that when I’m feeling down, I make a real effort to push past the poopy part of life and look cute. Looking good always helps lifts my spirits because at the least, I know I’ve shown the others in my life they’re important enough for me to ...

Tervis for Mother’s Day

I never really gave personalized cups and mugs much thought. Yeah they were cute, but when you break it down, it’s a cup. Then my friend Danielle stalked my Instagram and FB pages, pulled a few pictures of my beloved hairy guys, aka: LuLu and Moose, and voila! Chi-Lan’s first ...

Dewalt Tools!

Many of you know I love to build me some stuff. Going to Ikea numerous times, I became jealous of their useful kitchen drawers, so as a DIYer, I took some wood, some Dewalt tools and whammo! I built my ...

Jersey dress makes good

I've never been a fan of jersey dresses. For one they show too much junk I'm always trying to hide. And two they are usually so plain, I never reach for them. Since Los Angeles has decided to go from 70 and easy to 110 degrees in the span of a day, ...

Red Carpet look for the heat

The LA weather went from beautiful to the inside of an oven in 6 hours flat. My blood didn’t have time to thin and I didn’t acclimate as I usually do. Since taking time from work because ‘it’s just too hot’ would be very impressive, but impossible, I tried to ...

Neighbors — Zac Efron

Being a chick that loves dressing up for red carpets, I decide to don my favorite black dress with tie dye waist detail (bit of funk) that I snagged for a whopping $10 to work the premiere ...

Earrings, Belt Booties

I'm always amazed at what little pops of color can do for an outfit. This dress was a find at a local fashion store ($10!). But without anything I think it's bland. Add a cool belt and leather booties and whammo. Done. Out the door looking polished. Seriously play with ...

Beverage Bar gets a revamp

Yeah, I'm nesting hardcore since Moose left the house. I miss the 10lb dickens like no other, so in honor of him, I'm making this place more liveable, and clean! Here we go -- Let's see how long this lasts. My beverage cart is actually an upper cabinet I had taken ...

Mixing Patterns

Mixing patterns is a victimless crime. Yet many of us find it difficult because there's a fine line between fabulous and failure. I straddle that line often. And usually fall over to failure, but once I'm down, you'll always find me picking myself back up and putting on some other ...

DIY Thursday

Fancy up simple glassware and make your drinks sparkle by simply taking some gold paint, painting little dots in a random pattern of your fancy, and watch the classy quotient in your home go up exponentially! I've owned these cheapy stemless wine glasses & IKEA champagne glasses for years. Not sure ...

In case you missed it, here's my segment on great earth friendly products for you and your home.
