On the Saturday before Mother’s Day I attended On the Go Beauty, a pampering event at the Thompson Beverly Hills. There were blowouts by Joico, Stila makeup, Bellacures polishing nails, hair braiding and Henna tattoos! Here are some of the shots from that day, and I was so glad to bring along my friend Nita who enjoyed getting some well deserved mommy pampering!
When I attended Lucky FABB in April, I was introduced to Glossi, a digital magazine publishing platform. You don’t have to be an editor or techie to know how to create a magazine, as it is all laid out for you to enter text, images and video.
Once I started working on my first one I was hooked and began to create two others! Here is my first one, dedicated to event planning. Enjoy!
Attention ladies in the LA area – it’s time for a Hair Revolution!
CLEAR SCALP & HAIR BEAUTY THERAPY™ is kicking off the “Right End” Hair Revolution to encourage women to work at the scalp, where 99% of hair’s natural strength and beauty comes from. CLEAR SCALP & HAIR BEAUTY THERAPY™ nourishes the scalp and creates the right foundation for strong, beautiful hair.
For years, women have been working at the ends of hair, rather than the foundation – the scalp. Now, it is time to make the switch and start working at the other end.
As the face, and hair, of the brand, Heidi Klum will be kicking off the day’s activities at 10:30 a.m. at The Grove in Los Angeles.
Various CLEAR experiences and activities will be running until 6:00pm including:
- Complimentary “strong and beautiful” wash & blowouts (walk-ins welcome!)
- Beauty consultations with local expert Stacy Cox
- The chance to win glamorous prizes (while supplies last)
- A photo booth to capture your gorgeous hair & share your new look with friends

For over 5 years now I’ve been keeping a secret that I am finally going to reveal to my readers – my favorite place to shop! Maybe it’s not a secret to most if you check my other social sites, but to be sure that we’re all on the same page my absolute #1 shopping destination is Crossroads Trading Co.!
Crossroads Trading Co. is a store where you can buy, sell, or trade clothes! I discovered this store in Evanston, IL when I started a new job and I must say ever since then I was hooked! I would come in once a week shopping for anything colorful and eye-catching, while also selling things I felt someone else could make better use of. The store employees knew my name, and I just loved all the great items I found, especially dresses! I was excited to see that they expanded to Wicker Park and Lincoln Park, which allowed me to see different neighborhood styles.
Fast forward to 2010 and I decided to pack up and move to sunny LA. One of the first things I did while preparing for my move is seeing if Crossroads was in LA and I was in luck! With 3 locations in the area, I always gravitate to the Santa Monica location. Housed near the 3rd St. Promenade, it’s the perfect location mixed in with other fun stores to pop into.
When I enter a Crossroads, the first thing I do is look around at the featured items hanging in the store and then I make a beeline to the dresses section. Over half of the dresses I own are from Crossroads and I’ve posted most of them on Pinterest.
The best thing about Crossroads to me is I feel like I’m giving back by selling clothes and then doing a trade so I can get credit to buy new things. It feels like an equal exchange where I don’t feel guilty for shopping! If you haven’t checked one out yet, don’t waste time, you never know what you may find!
