All About Engagement Rings! My 5 Fave Kirk Kara Styles

As we all know, wedding season is in full swing, and this year is a busy one for me! I'm attending a few fabulous nuptials as a guest, and also the Maid of Honor and wedding planner for different occasions, too. Needless to say, I've definitely eyed my fair share of fabulous engagement rings over the years, and have an endless love for all things bling.

I've recently partnered up with Robbins Brothers this year as a brand ambassador and can't wait to share my love for sparkle and romance with all of you throughout the year!

First up, I review five dynamic diamond rings from designer Kirk Kara, that certainly can't be missed.
Check out what I had to say about each engagement ring here on the Robbins Brothers blog!

What's your favorite engagement ring style?

Celebrating Krisa Clothing's 10 Year Anniversary

I often get asked what a typical day for me looks like, and the answer is there is no typical day when you're a blogger/editor/host/style expert! Every day is absolutely different, but I will say that maintaining my relationships within the fashion and beauty biz is always my priority!

Today, I had the pleasure of brunching poolside with Krisa Clothing and other blogger babes to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. For a fledgling fashion company, that is a pretty MAJOR milestone, because as we know, it's definitely hard to make it and stay current season after season.

I had an amazing time meeting the Krisa team and the ambiance was top notch.

Cheers! #KristaTurns10

Rockin' the Runway for Bloomingdales!

It's hard to believe that I get to do what I LOVE for a living, and all of my years (over a decade now!) of experience leading up to this have flown by in a blink of an eye.

Right now, I wear many hats as an editor, blogger, style expert and host, but my favorite gigs are the ones where I get to connect with the audience and share my passion for fashion with real women looking for inspiration.
I've spent years behind a computer writing articles upon articles for various web sites and magazines, but there's no greater feeling than hosting on stage and connecting with people face-to-face.

I've been hosting events for Bloomingdale's all over Los Angeles for the last few years, and I have to say, it's the best feeling in the world when I take stage and talk trends with their shoppers. This spring, I was booked for back-to-back fashion shows at the Glendale and Century City locations, and had an absolute blast discussing the hot runway looks for our loyal customers.

Pinch Me Moment: Walking into Bloomingdale's and seeing MY picture all over the store! 

Take a peek at some of the fun shots from both events and be sure to come out to the next one I'm hosting!

All About the Apple Watch! I Discuss Wearable Technology on CNBC "Fast Money"

This post is a bit overdue, but it just goes to show you how crazy BUSY I've been! One of the absolute greatest highlights of the last few weeks for me was appearing on CNBC "Fast Money" talking about the brand new not-yet-launched Apple Watch.
Everyone has been buzzing about this piece, and I was honored to be asked on national television to share my thoughts as a style expert on the merits of this accessory.

Now, I had just hosted two back-to-back fashion shows for Bloomingdale's that weekend and styled a photo shoot the day before, so saying I was exhausted would be an understatement. Nevertheless, I love what I do, and jumped at this amazing opportunity! 

I had practically zero prep time (under two hours to be showered, camera-ready and ready to go on set right after I got the call that I was booked!) and quickly brushed up on everything I could learn about the many (awesome!) features of the Apple Watch in the car en route to the studio.

Before I knew it, I was live and chatting off the cuff with host Melissa Lee and other esteemed experts about this piece.

Watch the clip of the segment here.
(The actual segment was about six minutes long, this only shows a small portion of it!)

The segment was live and, of course, I had to feed in from LA, given that the show was taped on the east coast.

All in all, it was such an exhilarating experience, and I certainly made a point to tell the world why the Apple Watch is definitely worth purchasing this spring! Not only is it completely customizable (depending on your style preference or budget), but it's going to be the hot, happening, most-talked-about accessory of the year.

After all, for those that buy luxury watches, the price point of the Apple Watch is actually quite feasible, given all of the incredible functions and features it offers. Not to mention that this piece will go down in history as the first debut of wearable technology from Apple, which is noteworthy in and of itself!

The device has two different sized faces, 16 different strap options, six casing offerings and more. Moral of the story? Apple did a more-than-fair job at creating an innovative item that's both attractive and interesting for any consumer.

And bottom line--if Apples makes it, people will buy it.

So tell me, are you planning on purchasing the Apple Watch this spring?
