Happy Halloween!

Hope everyone had an amazing Halloween weekend!!  I celebrated with some friends on Satruday night & donned a Rosie the Riviter outfit :)

Probably the easiest outfit I've EVER worn because the only thing I had to purchase was a red bandana for $1! 

The Boyfriend (40's fighter pilot) & I (Rosie the Riveter) :)
My girlfriend went as a FedEx box!  Haha her hubby was a FedEx man :)

Another original costume!  My married friends went as Baby & Johnny from Dirty Dancing ;)

I wore a pair of high waist sailor shorts form Stop Starring that I already owned, a denim shirt by Lucky, Betsey Johnson red heels, red bandana, some pin-curls & red lips :)

Words of Wisdom


When do you feel the sexiest?

When I feel like a strong businesswoman at work & when I make great decisions for myself.

Been feelin' sexy all day ;)

Thought I'd share....

Palm Desert

In the lobby heading to dinner ;)
Dress is Lucy Love & bag is Marc Jacobs.

View from our room.

The Pool!

A couple weeks ago we decided to go to Palm Desert for the weekend to get away & soak up some sun while the weather is still nice & hot out there.  We stayed at the JW Marriot in Palm Desert, which I think is the perfect place to stay if you want a nice relaxing litter get away.  The place has it all...  3 swimming pools, sushi bar, lobby bar, a couple other restaurants, a nightclub, & lots of young people.  You really never even have to leave the resort if you don't want to!  

We lounged by the pool Saturday & Sunday, & went out to dinner in downtown Palm Desert Saturday night.  Ended up being a perfect little get away ;)

OOTD... Girl's Night Out ;)

Last night I grabbed some dinner with girlfriends & then went to a lounge for drinks & dancing
(For those of you in the OC, we went to Bandara in Corona Del Mar & Scott's in Costa Mesa after).
  Girls nights are definitely necessary & it's always fun to get pretty ;)

I got SO many compliments on this dress! It's from F21 :)
I wore it backwards so the low back became a plunging neckline ;).
With a bralette from American Apparel.  Wedges are Charles David & I just wore my usual jewelry...

Sometimes you just need a lazy Sunday ;)

Completely Natural

My skin & hair completely natural, no product, no moisturizer, no nothin.  
I attribute my skin's clearness & the dramatic difference in the redness of my skin to an IPL photofacial I had about a month ago.  I have a scar on my left browbone that's dramatically lightened, as well as the redness around my nose & mouth.  I've also found some products I really love that have taken care of breakouts:

Daily products I use:

Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash (I use it to take off my makeup)
ROC under-eye cream
Kheil's Absene Creme

Peter Thomas Roth Acne Wash or Peter Thomas Roth Scrub (I use the scrub 1 or 2x a week)
Kheil's Absene Creme
Skin79 Super BB Cream (I use this instead of foundation most days, as it's like a tinted moisturizer)

After a LONG night (with cocktails) I use Origin's Cucumber under-eye gell to take care of puffiness.

New Fall Loves

Aren't they pretty?

New Newport Hot Spot

If you live in the OC, then you've probably heard of this new hot spot. Pizzeria Mozza in Newport Beach is the newest restaurant to get foodies buzzing & I've been wanting to see what all the hype was about for a while...

We ordered the caprese salad with burratta & roasted cherry tomatoes, white bean brochette, sage & truffle cheese pizza & banana ice cream pie & salted caramel gelato.

I got a class of pino grigio (@ $12 it was one of the cheapest wines on the list) & my companion got a beer. The bill came to about $90 so be prepared to spend a pretty penny on pizza. Also be prepared for the $8 valet!!

To be honest, it was good, but not great. I still think Pizza Ortica is better (& A LOT cheaper).

F21 Picks

SO many great finds on F21 right now!  I'm loving their sweaters, hats, "spiked" earings & cropped pants.  Also that color block belt is a must have to spice up a LBD!
