Sheckys Girls Night Out 2012: LA Recap

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On Wednesday, May 2nd I attended Shecky’s Girls Night Out at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.  It was a woman’s candy store filled with stylish clothes, accessories, shoes and even hair extensions to try on and buy!  There were also a Maybelline makeover studio where girls could glam up and take a photo!  Drinks were offered by La Croix and Little Black Dress and Cointreau as the DJ spun tunes to keep you moving and grooving throughout the scene.  Two vendors I want to highlight that caught my attention are BellaSole and Basic Instinct.

There are many folding flats on the market that tend to your feet once those high heels come off.  BellaSole offers comfy flats with style which come in a zippered pouch that doubles as a wristlet.  They do the job of saving your feet from walking the all way back to your car after long night out with ease.

Black pouch doubles as a wristlet big enough to hold your cards and gloss!

I love the idea that you can not only store your flats in it, but there is room for your ID, credit card and gloss!  I immediately asked the creator, Tina Wong if she is coming out with decorative wristlets with a pocket on the outside for an even more stylish look and she is currently testing that out.  I feel that would definitely be a plus and look forward to seeing her new developments!

Update: If you are interested in buying the flats, Tina is offering a promotion price of $15 (normal $21.99) by using the code STYLEGODDESS at checkout!  http://mybellasole.com

Basic Instinct

I’ve always wanted to take a self-defense class and Basic Instinct was on-site to promote self-protection and signing up for one of their classes.  They demonstrated a few moves with a student who enjoyed taking the classes and that had me sold!  They offer a free training session on Tuesdays and Thursdays and I can’t wait to go to mine.  Sign up and be ready to take on real-life scenarios in common places with confidence and action!

Overall, it was a fun event that is not only in LA, but San Francisco, Houston, Chicago, New York and many more!

My Culinary Affair with Rosa Mexicano

As a fashionista, not only do I want to share with you fab finds of clothing and beauty, but I also want to give you my picks for the most fashionable restaurants.

Celebrating my 3 year anniversary, my boyfriend and I wanted to go somewhere special. We walked on Sunset Blvd. looking for the perfect romantic, hip place and we approached Rosa Mexicano. As soon as I crossed the threshold, I was immediately sold.  The decor was beautiful, especially the waterfalls.  Leather seating, glass beading and mix of red and blues hues throughout gave it an upscale feel without being pretentious. It felt like a fun atmosphere and we had our choice of seating. We opted for outside since there were heat lamps and it was nice out!  For the chips and salsa, you get 2 sauces, mild and spicy where the spicy calls for drinking water every 2 dips. There is also guacamole made tableside, which they are known for, it so it’s a must try.

Moving on to drinks, the white sangria was AMAZING! It came with a small pitcher so you can have to glasses for one price. I had two rounds of it and my bf was enjoying it as well! Now the meal. OMG, it was sooo divine! I had the Salmon en Manchamanteles, which is a grilled salmon filet with tropical fruit mole sauce, zucchini and roasted corn. Mix all that together and it was perfection! It comes with house rice which was sooo delicious that I tried to finish it, but I was way too full. My boyfriend got the carne asada tacos, which was served in a skillet on top of melted chihuahua cheese and it came with this saucy corn that was oh so good!

Overall, ample food portions and great ambience equals a good time all the time! So put on your sexy outfit, pull out those heels and head over to Sunset Blvd. and have an affair with an upscale Mexican restaurant that will keep you coming back for more!

Working Out in Style!

Recently I realized the workout shorts I have are not lightweight in fabric or compatible for the hot days in LA. I decided I needed to find a pair of nylon shorts that would keep up with me as I run frequently and play Rally Ball. On a whim I was looking around Gap when I noticed a colorful rack of GapFit activewear. There were several fitness shorts and I grabbed pair in a rich jade shade made of lightweight nylon. They fit perfectly, but the true test was to take them out for a run and play a hard core game of Rally Ball.

I must say I am truly in love with these wonderful shorts! Not only are they versatile, but they have two zippered pockets on the front and a small pocket on the inside. I can wear them for a quick errand or even go for a swim!  Goddess Style points for also being so stylish and keeping me colorful even when I workout. Style tip: you never know what store you’ll find just what you’re looking for, so it’s worth browsing around the entire store. You may just end up buying something you like and returning to purchase another pair in a different color.  One things for sure, I’ll be back at Gap for another pair of these shorts soon, but next time in yellow!

Fashion Night Out on Rodeo Drive – You Should Be Dancing! (And Shopping)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For only being here 2 weeks, it’s no doubt I made the right decision to move to LA and to come at a time when one of the biggest events of the year, Fashion Night Out was taking place.  I opted for the scene on Rodeo Drive, where I’ve never seen so many people at one time on this street.  The fashionistas and brand loyal mavens were out shopping, networking, having champagne and posing for pictures.  The weather was a little breezy, enough for the models to have their hair swinging in the wind, the ferris wheel was twirling around with kids happy with glee, and high-end stores were open for business from 6-10pm, even 11pm for some.
