Throw Some Dapper Godz On It

“Luxury can be everyday.”

My style seems to be ever evolving these days. I love a mix of high & low, casual & dressy, luxury & simple and sporty & trendy. Dapper Godz falls into that category of them all. This is why I love this brand that is owned by a great friend and based out of Los Angeles.

IMG_1017At first glance it seems to to be a brand for gentlemen, which it is, but what makes it so amazing is that women can rock the bowties, pocket squares and tie pins as well. Dapper Godz has so many options for many occasions from solids to patterns to floral tie pins. A great to introduce yourself to the brand and fall in love with it is through the Gentlemen’s Box, which is what I received. It consists of a gorgeous bowtie, pocket square, tie pin and Valentino Umo Intense Men’s fragrance (exclusively at Nordstrom & smells great for women wanting to try it as well).

 

The Gentlemen’s Box makes for a great gift for your groomsmen (especially with wedding season in full swing), Father’s Day, Birthdays and not just for the men in your life, but for the ladies in your life who love fabulous fashion. Remember, ladies can rock bowties too !

Dapper Godz is high quality, on trend and for anyone that loves to rock great accessories. Dapper Godz can be for any occasion from casual occassions or that next wedding celebration so head on over to their website and pick up your Dapper Godz’ original !

P.S. How do you love to style your bowtie ? I love to rock it with my jeans, over the knee boots and a fabulous blouse !

Three Day Rule’s Night of Beauty at Viceroy Santa Monica

“Glamour is a state of mind.”

IMG_9156

A little bit about Three Day Rule, who invited me to the fantastic ‘Night of Beauty’ event, they got started around 10 years ago and are now in 8 different cities. Three Day Rule’s goal is to create a much, more enjoyable, stress free dating experience. I look at TDR as a traditional yet modern way of dating without an app, which I love.

It is more of a personal way of dating in that the matchmakers go on the first dates asking all the uncomfortable questions for their clients. To me it is like your friend is weeding out the ones that are not right for you. Another fun aspect of TDR is that if you meet a matchmaker you can also become a match, which means if they have a client that they think you should meet they will make the setup for you 🙂 Simply love this idea ! Go check out, Three Day Rule !

Now back to TDR’s 10th Annual Night of Beauty Event on June 12th. This beautiful event was hosted at the spectacular Viceroy Santa Monica (definitely having a staycation here). It was the perfect evening for an amazing event. Three Day Rule, Gilt City and Match teamed up for this annual event. Night of Beauty consisted of complimentary beauty, hair, nail touch-ups, pampering and tons of shopping with beGlammed (who did my makeup), Nail Garden (added the beautiful glitter to my mani), Cristophe Salon (William gave me my sexy beach waves), Toms (got my new shades, obsessed and for a great cause), Sprinkles Cupcakes (of course I had a cupcake & a cookie), Kendra Scott, Soul Cycle, Trunk Club, Club Pilates (excited to try), SUJA Juice (obsessed), Mai Couture (picked up amazing blush blot sheets), Skin Owl and many more amazing brands were present.

I not only got to enjoy a glamorous event while getting pampered (one of my favorite things), I also met a lot of amazing new people, which included Alisa, a matchmaker at TDR. Alisa went even more in depth about TDR and was kind enough to be my photographer for the evening.

After this beautiful event by the Viceroy Santa Monica pool, there was a singles mixer event at the bar. I sadly couldn’t’ stay, but I am positive that was a fun, successful mixer. I truly had an amazing time at TDR’s 10th Annual Night of Beauty Event and can’t wait for next year’s.

If you ever have a chance to attend a Three Day Rule event, I highly recommend it. Even if you aren’t single, they are perfect events to go with friends and meet new people.

If you are single and looking for a match, hit up Alisa at Three Day Rule. I ended up meeting with Alisa a week after the event for coffee and so excited to see who she matches me with !

Thank you again for inviting me!

“Home of the free because of the brave.”

First off, thank you to those that gave their lives for us and all that continue to serve for our freedoms. In honor of these brave soldiers, here are some amazing ways we can honor and celebrate them !

1.Backyard BBQ with all your favorite outdoor games like cornhole from Dick’s Sporting Goods and horseshoe from Amazon along with the best pool floaties like from Sunnylife

2.Pizza from Settebello, Beer (my fave Mother Earth) and Cards Against Humanity

3. Trip to San Diego (includes Baseball (Hot Dogs & Cold Beverages) & Beach Time)

4.A day of fun that includes Pinterest Crafts and popcorn, which is great for all the families

 

Another idea I have seen around too that I one day want to try for Memorial Day is a Memorial Day Adult Scavenger Hunt around town with friends, how fun and what a great way to celebrate our soldiers !

Also don’t forget to bust out your flags and poppies (be sure to check out why bring out the poppies) along with all your red,white and blue !

P.S. Remember to show love for our soldiers especially on the holidays dedicated to them.

 

Savory, Sweets and Sparkle Extravaganza

“Leave a little sparkle wherever you go.”

Rocking Target, Forever 21 and Wet n Wild paired with One Hope and Tinselbox 

Finding the perfect theme for an afternoon lunch can be a challenge, but a fun one. My usual go to is Nautical with a Parisian twist, but I wanted to chang it up this time. So when I got sent the amazing Unicorn party theme supplies by Tinselbox and a rainbow sparkle bottle of One Hope‘s delicious champagne, I knew I had my theme. With it being the year of the unicorn trend and sparkle was a must, I was excited to get to planning. My decorations were set, beverages chosen, so now it was time to pick the food.

My go to spots these days are All Recipes and Food Network and it was no different this time around either. I found some amazing savory googies to make: Garlic Cheese Biscuits, Deviled Eggs and BLT Pasta were from All Recipes and the Shrimp Arugula Crostinis were from Food Network, which were all a hit and will definitely be made again. I also picked up cheeses and meats for an appetizers at Trader Joe’s. I made sure not to forget one of the most important parts of a meal, dessert. The dessert of choice, Raspberry and Earl Grey French macaroons from Whole Foods, which are perfect with champagne.

Now that the food is squared away, it is set up time. A champagne and unicorn theme is perfect for under the lemon tree in my backyard and just the right time to bust out the vintage bar cart. It was a joyful filled with bubbles by One and Unicorn decorations and supplies from Tinselbox, which I will never forget. You can never go wrong with a day of sparkles, bubbles and fun with family.

Stay tuned for another savory and sweets extravaganza !

 

Pink is Everywhere !

October is one of my favorite months out of the year not just because fall is in full swing, but because it is the month dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness.

img_1092

Throughout the year we always here about raising awareness for breast cancer, which is great, but what I love about October is the awareness is amped up and the conversations about how we have all been affected by Breast Cancer are ever present. The events are every night, products galore and the conversation is always at the forefront. Every October I try and figure out ways to bring awareness and show my support.

This year I have decided to write about and similar to years past I always pick up products where the proceeds give back to Breast Cancer Research and also show support with their stand out pink.

Music at a Festival…Brings a Flock Together

Going to make this short and sweet because I don’t want you all to miss out on all the festival fun. Every year music festivals seem to get bigger and bigger, a lot of it is because music is universal. Music continues and will continue to bring people together.

The Luck of Adventures in Mom’s Closet

“Clothes aren’t going to change the world. The women who wear them will.” -Anne Klein

One may think that as we get older playing dress up goes out the window, you know what I say to that, ” Absolutely Not.” I still continue to play dress up and not just in my closet, but my mom’s.

Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater Perfume(Mom’s Perfume)

That’s why in honor of International Women’s Month, I thought it would be fun spending a day playing dress up in my mom’s closet, a woman who I admire, who inspires and continues to influence/shape who I have become in the best ways possible.

Here are some of my favorite outfits from my favorite lady’s closet (Shh, don’t tell her I may have to keep them 🙂 )

Who are some amazing women that have influenced you? Look forward to hearing all about them!

For me, obviously my mom, but my super sister, great friends and my dad who is always beyond supportive to my mom, my sis and myself.

IMG_6906IMG_6908

Don’t forget to go out and thank those that have influenced, inspired and helped you !

P.S The only part of these outfits that aren’t my mom’s are the shoes because unfortunately I don’t fit into her’s
