Style & Beauty

Back to School Style with JCPenney I don’t know about you, but my almost 9-year old is growing at a warp speed. Like, feet a half a size away from being the same as mine. I can’t keep up. It feels like every other month, he needs a new  — (insert clothing item here). Luckily, his birthday falls right around going back to school. Why is this lucky? Oh, because I can say “happy birthday, here’s your gift” when I buy him a new pair of sneakers… You know, the kind that comes with a huge NBA superstar guaranteeing to make your kid jump higher (as in the kind that cost ...Read More
Summer Style & Travel: Mexico Edition It’s hard to believe that two years ago, I was writing a post about what three dresses I planned to wear as I pranced around Italy and Greece on our honeymoon. That was the trip of a lifetime and seems like forever ago… but I guess time certainly has a way of flying when you’re making babies and moving in to a new house. From Oliver’s amazing health, to Jonah finishing 2nd grade with flying colors, and Peter graduation with an MBA from UCLA (and working full time!) we have so much to celebrate and in my opinion, deserve another fabulous vacation! (Cue the St. Regis, Punta ...Read More
JC Penney: #SoWorthIt Mother’s Day Style You know those moments when you put on an outfit and your girlfriends go crazy because they simply cannot believe you spent as little as you did, yet it looks so good? Well, I’m not bragging (okay, I am), but I am kind of having those moments a lot lately… And honestly, it feels fantastic!   Last weekend, I teamed up with JC Penney and Pinterest to bring Pinterest boards to life at the Northridge Fashion Center. It was our mission to make sure that moms never have a #PinterestFail again! For two days, we showcased some fabulous outfits, perfect for Mother’s Day, as well as every day ...Read More
My Body, My Motivation: Thanks, Kim Kardashian. Me. Honeymooning in Santorini, Greece.June 2014 I want to hate Kim Kardashian for recently posting a naked selfie (that she admits is not even of her post baby body), but I can’t. In response to the uproar over her breaking the internet yet again, Kim writes “I am empowered by my body, I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me. And I hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same ...Read More
Get your kids stylin’ with some fantastic duds from the Spring collection at The Children’s Place!  EVERYTHING is 50%-80% off- NO EXCLUSIONS! Next month, Peter, Jonah and I will be heading to Maui for a little Spring Break vacation and 1 year wedding anniversary celebration. I’m so looking forward to sun, sand, relaxation, and time with my two favorite people on the planet. I’m also looking forward to dressing for sunshine and all things Spring! When it comes to dressing my little guy, The Children’s Place is a perfect place to grab some cute Spring essentials and vacation must haves. Most days, Jonah is a basketball shorts, comfie tee kind of kid (which ...Read More
When I got a call from the awesome team at Monrow clothing asking if I was interested in hosting an exclusive sale to my readers, I think I blurted out YES before they could even complete their question. I am a tee shirt girl through and through and I have been in love with the  V-Neck tees from Monrow for years. Soft, oversized and the perfect dip in “V,” I wear these puppies with basically everything. Seriously, I’ve been wearing the Granite V-neck Tee so much lately that Jonah asked me if I had anymore clothes. Since I work from home, “getting dressed” is simply a term for working out, showering, and changing ...Read More
I could write a really long intro about the announcement I’m about to make, but let me just cut to the chase: Our wedding has been featured on J.Crew  and I am literally bursting at the seams with excitement!!! JCREW. AHHH! In August 2013, just a few weeks after Peter proposed, I was lucky to have to go New York to shoot some videos with LifetimeMoms. While I was there, I not only ate my weight in pizza and champagne with one of my besties, BUT I made an appointment at the JCrew bridal salon on 5th Ave just cuz. The Percy gown was the second dress I tried on… Simple, elegant, comfortable and ...Read More
Right now, when it comes to Fall fashion I’m all about simplicity. This summer I went a little nuts getting my wardrobe ready for our whirlwind, European honeymoon. (Let’s be honest, I purchased just a tad more than 3 dresses for 3 cities). While I have a closet full of lovely summer gear, which thanks to LA weather can actually still be worn, it really is time to shift into Fall. Thankfully, my birthday falls in September so I was able “gift” myself some new duds, including the Clare Vivier fold over clutch. OBSESSED. But now, it’s time to slooooow things down. Time to simplify. Even though I had to slow my roll, there ...Read More
When it comes to following fashion trends, there are a few sites and blogs that I turn to for inspiration and ideas. (#ootd bathroom selfies not withstanding). But these days, if you asked my Amex (and my husband), there’s one site in particular that gets my “have to have it” heart. Yep… It’s pretty safe to say that Piperlime is my other man. In fact, I confess: I’m kind of a Piperlime style slut. Between Olivia Palermo’s picks, and the other awesome contributors, I feel like I’m always getting great ideas and updates on new arrivals and how to style them together… and sometimes there are even site wide discounts or flash sales. Best days EVER! ...Read More

Last month, I signed on to be a new host for a great site called Joyus.  Joyus is a startup out of San Francisco and has quickly become a leading video shopping destination dedicated to bringing you the best of fashion, beauty, and healthful living.  I’m so honored and excited to be a part of their team and share my thoughts and tips on some great fashion and accessory finds.
