Please check out this POWERFUL documentary on the media’s gross MIS-representation of women of power and influence & its detrimental affects on our youth today.
“The message that our youth receive is that a woman’s value & power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and NOT in her capacity as a leader.”
“The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself.”
I am RE-inspired and RE-motivated to help change this!!
This cause has always been dear to my heart, and has re-lit my fire to change this world one superwoman at a time. If you feel the same, watch the movie, and take the pledge for this cause on their website, www.missrepresentation.org ♥

Absolutely adorbs these dresses from BCBG Max Azria of the cocktail kind. Lace: big PLUS.
↑ Khloe Lace Cocktail Dress ($268) - LOVE. The lace, the hot pink, my taste buds are feelin a summery cocktail at a rooftop party around a pool. Cue the Summerlin Watermelon cocktail ↓
↑ Blaine Color-Blocked Cocktail Dress ($198) - Asymmetrical but not. Classy dress for a classy lady at a classy hotel rooftop bar sipping on a classy Mahattan. Up, not on the rocks. ↓
↑ Elia Cutout-Detail Silk Cocktail Dress ($388) - A show stopper! Anything goes here, day or night. From a red carpet happy hour event in Hollywood to easy, breezy weekend outing at an oceanside outdoor bar in Malibu. Live high and get a Mojito with that dress! ↓
Cheers to BCBG Max Azria for consistently being on point at a not-so-crazy price point. Bottoms up! ✭
It was a ridiculously beautiful Sunday, perfect for visiting the Brentwood Country Mart for a Sunday-Funday brunch. This hidden gem located not to far from my neighborhood boasts easy & breezy laid back country fab in heart of Los Angeles. Gourmet food, unique shopping, family-friendly, and small town charm refreshing, the Brentwood Country Mart is on my list for a regular weekend destination to get away from the crazytown that is L.A. Below are some photos I snapped during my visit over the weekend! ☀
↑ Who wouldn’t walk into a cafe called LUXXE? Plus the Find OTD was this dark chocolate imported from the Philippines. It was darn good, too. Who knew?
↑ High-quality brunch/wine menu + cocktails, colorful organic veggies, cheese, and a plethora of gourmet offerings at the FARM SHOP. It’s a sunny weekend must-try!
↑ Did I mention the baby animals mini-petting zoo? Just all around fabulously adorbs. ♥
My recent order of Jo Malone cologne straight from their website came with a few pleasingly fab perks! First off is the LUXE packaging - the cream box with grosgrain ribbon and jet black tissue - so chic! Second - two complimentary fragrance vial samples of your choice, and third - a free spray sample of their summery Grapefruit fragrance if you subscribe to their online newsletter! What a fab way to end the week! I think I’ll be ordering from their website from now on! Happy Friday everyone, and have a wonderful, relaxing, fabulously sexy weekend! ♥♥♥
A few things from my desk at work that help keep the workplace feeling fab! ☆
↑ This Homegrown Monogram Mug from Anthropologie whimsically holds beauty touch-up tools for quick hair & make-up fixes throughout the day!
↑ Various pretty polish colors for chipped polish emergencies and some go-to blush occupy the base of my desk lamp perfectly.
↑ A handy tray for miscellaneous items that come and go throughout the work day - keys, shades, gloss, jewelry, coins, candy, concealer…
↑ A conveniently low maintenance mini bamboo plant to keep things green and feeling fresh! Not to mention a wonder woman mug to remind me to be feminine AND strong - DAILY.
↑ My travel size HerStyler hair straightener/curler for finishing touches before I head off to happy hour after a long day at work! Fab headphones a must for zoning out and focusing, a fun notebook for taking fun notes, and a few fitness tear outs for when I need reminding to get up out of my chair, shake and stretch it out, get the blood flowing and go do a few squats!
↑ Of course the most fabulous accessory is this beautiful view of Hollywood from my desk. Keeps me (day)dreaming and aspiring for more! The whole world is out there with ENDLESS possibilities - never stop reaching for that next level! ♥
Now this. Is Fierce. The debut of handing out BELLY DANCE COIN SKIRTS in my Zumba class was a huge success! I knew it’d make them want to shake it THAT much harder! It worked for me, too! But it also made the other people in class who didn’t get a skirt smile and shake hard just the same. The WEEKEND WARRIOR CREW KNOW WHAT TO DO!! You guys know I’m always tryin’ to *shake* things up in my class! Pun intended! LO❤E IT!!
Happy Saturday everyone! Make time to be easy and breezy. Remember that NOW is the moment that never ends. Literally. So blissfully live in it. Winnie the Pooh knows what’s up! Namaste y’all! ❤
