Hot Lips


From Galentine's to Valentine's I had such a great time celebrating LOVE with close ones this past month! It is the simple moments that really count. Road trips, coffee dates, a hike, all things where laughs are just inevitable when great conversation is shared with great company. One of these moments was just the case when I joined The Four Seasons Silicon Valley for its darling "Get Teased" event with some of my favorite local ladies. A stylish high afternoon tea party, Four Seasons introduced guests to quality Silicon Valley companies and my favorite discovery was Nuubia SF. A fine artisan chocolatier, all confections are hand crafted with organic and humanly sourced ingredients. Ganaches, pralines and truffles!!! You can only imagine that I of course devoured each chocolate bit by bit. Make sure to stay tuned to Four Seasons Silicon Valley Facebook Page to get updates on coming events! See you there!!


Inspired by all things sweet at the event, I reworked the ensemble I wore to high tea, taking it from day to night by adding a trio of brooches to my original black and white look. I love the idea of using a brooch as a stylish alternative to the classic statement bauble. Thus consider incorporating  a brooch into your spring look instead of the typical necklace or earrings.  I paired my chic new statement lips pin with an antique jeweled flower sparkler and a quirky vintage Dachshund piece. A little glam, a little fun, I think brooches are my new spring to summer go-to gem!

Parisian Love


Only ten days into February and what a fun time it has already been! Getting back into the swing of event hopping I was invited to some amazing local beauty events, including Whole Foods Market's #makeupbreakup event in Campbell. Focusing on "breaking-up" with conventional beauty products that can have unwanted chemicals, I totally loved the bevy of fabulous natural alternatives Whole Food's introduced me to at their #makeupbreakup party! My favorite "unconventional" product showcased was Suja Juice. Juice? A beauty product? YES! Alongside their skin care items and make-up brands Whole Foods also showcased healthy food alternatives, teaching that what you eat and drink can really make an impact on beauty health. Recently interested in exploring the world of cold-pressed juice, I was taken back at how delish Suja juices tasted and at the detoxifying juice programs they offer via Whole Foods Market. I am officially addicted to their Green Supreme. Can I get a YUM?! Whole Foods will be having an amazing beauty sale from February 11th to the 15th, offering 25% off all makeup, nail color and lip balm so make sure to stop by and pamper yourself. Speaking of pampering, Whole Foods will also be having an amazing Valentine's Day promo, offering a dozen trade roses for $40... pink would be nice... hint hint, right ladies!?   

With Valentine's Day in the air I wore this pink look to the #makeuptobreak event and I might have to repeat it on February 14th. I recently snagged these pastel pant pretties at Bella Rosa Boutique in Los Gatos and was so excited when they paired perfectly with my powder pink strappy heels. Subtle and sweet, light pink hues are great substitute for the traditional red on Valentine's Day. Consider pairing a pop of pink heel with some boyfriend jeans for a casual date night or a statement pink dress with all black accessories for a romantic night out on the town. Ooh la la!

2015 Valentine's Day Gift Guide


It blows my mind how fast January has gone by! In the blink of an eye Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I partnered up with Santana Row, my favorite local go-to shopping center, to share with you some "I heart you" worthy present picks.



Sassy Gal
1/2/3/4/5

For that Sassy Gal in your life, consider giving her the gift of rest and relaxation! With summer dreaming on the horizon, help her get out of the winter blues with some vacation essentials. 60's style is a major spring to summer trend this year and a mod bathing suit, like the La Tarte piece pictured, is right on cue for it flatters any body type. SCORE! Le Tarte Swimwear just opened at Santana Row and it is full of adorable pieces so make sure you stop and check them out. No travel look is complete without some fun sunnies and a great tote. How cute are these $5 heart-shaped sunglasses from Paper Source paired with this timeless Kate Spade striped bag! Can I get a au revoir? Oui! oui!
  


Sweet Chic
1/2/3/4/5

For that Sweet Chic think pink! I mean a girl can never have too much pink. Personally I want everything in this gift guide. I am especially smitten on this Soda and Scotch sweatshirt and Kate Spade necklace. If you are in need of a small token for a special gal pal, how about a pretty pair of polish? With names like Crush and First Love, both pictured above, 100% Pure has a bevy of pink shades that would make great "Gal"entine gifts. 

Santana Row will also have many restaurant specials on Valentine's day so don't fret if you are in need for fabulous plans. XOXO!

Grey


Whenever I head out to any estate sale, it is the idea that I might find something that screams uniquely "me", which really gets me excited and this is exactly what happened not to long ago at one of Kuzak's Closet's epic estate sales. Coming home with a major designer vintage haul, this grey slouchy sweater was only one of many things that captured my heart so stay tuned for there are more pieces to showcase!

Lately I have been really into playing with neutrals, dabbling into soft shades and muted combos I wouldn't normally consider. I have never been a fan of all black looks, even for my everyday style I stick to denim and crisp white tees. Yet trying to balance out my color and print wardrobe, this grey slouchy sweater is a great starting point to my personal style project. Have a great weekend lovelies!

Excuse My French


I wore this outfit a while back to a fashion event and love how this quirky sweatshirt added some flair to such a basic look. I've been a little obsessed with finding fun sweatshirts lately. Comfortable but chic, they can dress up a pair of basic skinny jeans or can give some spunk to boring skirt. I like to wear them with fancy heels or a red lip, making the look pop.
