In San Francisco, on set at Wearing a fabulous popover blouse in black by Velvet. Exciting news! 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. Below are a couple of my newest videos… The Pardess Cuff and Rings sold out fast! But you can still get the Bamai Cuff ...Read More
I love planning parties! But when it comes to cleaning up after a party… well… not so much. When I teamed up with Glad to host a clothing swap for a bunch of my girlfriends, they assured me that they would show us that cleaning up could be fun. That’s right: FUN.  Glad Black Bag is celebrating life’s best moments and making sure that no matter the mess left behind cleanups are in the bag with its “Trash Crasher” Bashes. From tossing our “trashy tacos” and bagging our once-beloved duds that we were donating to charities, a team of trash-crashing ninjas (aka #TrashCrashers) descended on the house and swooped up our ...Read More
Last month, I teamed up with Glad®  to host a party like no other. Perched at the top of the hills overlooking Los Angeles, I invited some of my most stylish friends and fellow bloggers to join me for a night of fashion, fun and food. I knew my friends had great taste and great wardrobes, but honestly, I didn’t realize how great until I saw the amazing new duds everyone got to go hoem with. While I didn’t take home anything from the swap, except some fabulous jewelry from my girl at GROCK LA, I was shocked by how many designer and trendy items the girls left with. (Um, PS. ...Read More
The other day, a friend told me that I’d make the perfect “1965 wife.”  Some women might find this to be offensive, but me, nah… I’m a full time working gal, with a plate so full and a life so busy. So the fact that I cook, clean, raise a child and sit patiently during tackles, touchdowns, and all things end-zone, kinda makes me feel like a badass. While I’m still the “not so queen of it all,” I actually feel proud that I have figured out a way to be “domestic” too. It may not look perfect, it may not always be pretty, but I can certainly try to be a little ...Read More
It seems like every Monday, I’m on a hunt for a recipe that is sort of a one stop shop– a recipe that I can get all the ingredients literally in one shop, put them all in one pot, and walk away. However, not only is this crock pot-codependent relationship hurting the feelings of my 5qt Le Creuset pot (I’m not bragging, I’m just saying it’s really pretty), but it’s starting to bore Jonah and Peter to tears: There’s only so much shredded chicken tacos and turkey chili a man/boy can take. Luckily, a few months ago, I went to New York and had the opportunity to cook with the very ...Read More
Even with my busy schedule, I can always find a reason to throw a party and hang with the girls. In honor of the Season finale of “Project Runway,” Sugar and Charm’s Eden Passante and I, invited some friends over for a “So Good Moms’ Night and served up some delicious treats inspired by Yoplait Frozen Yogurt.  Watch to see what we serve and (most importantly) what we wear ! > “Project Runway” airs Thursdays at 9/8c. Don’t miss the season finale on October 17.
Confession: I’ve been taking a lot of “selfies” lately. Almost 98% of these selfies are just for me… a chance to see what I look like in my outfit... in my camera. (Cray cray, I know). The other 2% of my photos are texted to my fashion crush and style guru Robin Saperstein. Upon receiving my texts, Robin kindly indulges me with a “Yay,” “NO,” or “It’s not my favorite,” (which is code for, “you need my help.”)  Well, in an effort to feel so good, Eden and I decided we’d shop her closet to find the cutest outfits for our Moms’ Night for the Project Runway finale where we’re ...Read More
I’m in full party planning mode these days. Not just with the wedding, (oh, the wedding!) but with other fun stuff like the So Good Moms’ Night I recently hosted with my girl Eden Passante of Sugar and Charm. We decided it would be so fun to get the girls together for a night of food and fashion to celebrate the season finale of Project Runway on Lifetime.  Channeling her own inner fashionista, the very talented Eden put together a little “Make it Work” station replete with the awesome new line of Yoplait Greek Frozen Yogurt, served in glass canning jars. The toppings we served were healthy and added to ...Read More
Last year, I tried to volunteer at school as much as I could. Spending time in Jonah’s class -cutting paper, cleaning up, passing out goodies on special occasions, etc.- opened my eyes not only to the world of Transitional Kindergarten and public school, but also to the differences between boys and girls… At an early age, it’s clear that there is an inherent difference in attention to detail… Generally, the boys scribble fast, while the girls keep the colors (coordinated) and in between the lines. This basically results in Jonah coming home with a lot of projects that, well… look like… someone just wanted to get outside and play zombies ...Read More
Short of a lavender herb garden, my own chickens, and 400 plus staff members, I’m slowly fulfilling my dream to become Martha Stewart. Like really slowly. So maybe I’m not quite up to par with said queen of it all, but these days my juices are flowing and my DIY doin’ is at an all time high. New home = new projects. Lots and lots o’ them. Over the next few weeks and months, I’ll be sharing some highlights from these different projects and events.  Here is a video that I recently shot for Lifetime Moms on how to create burlap monogrammed art. So easy and makes a great gift! >
