Fabulous Dining: STK LA!

A few weeks ago, my girlfriends and I decided to make a night of it at STK LA at The W Hotel in Westwood.

Now, I haven't been to the property in over a year (maybe more), and I have to say the addition of this incredibly restaurant was definitely a smart move! The food is phenomenal, and so is the swanky vibe inside. The service couldn't be beat, and loved their cocktail menu to unwind after a long week. We were lucky enough to taste a good portion of their tantalizing menu and couldn't stop raving about ALL of the deliciousness we enjoyed!

It was the best night with the best food, and we'll definitely be back again! Just look at our dinner-- #FoodPorn for days.

Steak, halibut, mac & cheese, potatoes and more....

Garlic bread...soooo good. 

Oysters! Because we're fancy like that. 
Cheers to STK LA!

Fashion + Philanthropy

As most of you know, in addition to my full-time job as a senior fashion editor for a major celeb, I also spend a lot of my free time furthering my love of fashion as a style expert, host and brand ambassador. To me, this is truly living the fabulous life! 

This season, I was busier than ever hosting for several brands and organizations. Here are a few of the highlights:

Last weekend, I had the honor of hosting the annual Dress for Success Shop for Success Fashion party in Beverly Hills, and had the best time! This was my third year in a row hosting for this incredible organization, and it's one of my favorite groups to join forces with! The hard-working, big-hearted team behind the cause is so great to work with, and I absolutely love helping women get back on their feet. Best of all, there's always TONS of amazing designer deals and I always come back home with a shopping bag filled with fabulous additions for my closet!

I am also a proud brand ambassador for fashion and accessories line, Carmen Steffens, and I absolutely LOVE their fierce footwear and handbags. I recently co-hosted an event for them that benefitted St. Jude Children's Cancer Research and had a great evening mingling and trying on heels all night long with our stylish guests! Fashion + Philanthropy = Winning Combination!

INVITE: Lung Force Glam Event on December 1st!

Hi loves! I am so sorry it's been forever since an update--life has been SO busy these last few months!
But I wanted to share that I am thrilled to join my beauty bestie @VanityGirlHollywood to co-host the upcoming American Lung Association's Lung Force Glam event at The London Hotel on December 1, 2015 from 6-9PM.

Obsessed: Japanese Nail Art at Gavert Atelier Beverly Hills

It's been a hectic few weeks, so today I was overjoyed to step into Gavert Atelier in Beverly Hills to get my nails done by the lovely Hami for a relaxing treat.

Hami is wonderfully detail-oriented manicurist and nail artist who can truly make your dreams come true! I showed her some ideas of what I had in mind, but ultimately couldn't decide between a gradient, a heart-shaped design or tons of sparkles. Hami's suggestion? Let's do it all!

And so we did--and all ten digits turned out absolutely gorgeous! To top it off, she added some extra rhinestones on each nail for a truly stunning effect. In short, my nails have never looked better, and Hami's fabulous creative eye and sweet personality absolutely made my day. Absolutely obsessed--I will be back soon with more fun ideas to jazz up my nails!

Go see Hami!

Oh What a Night! Robbins Brothers 4th Annual Diamonds & Desserts Event

Hi guys!
It's been a crazy chaotic past few days, but only GOOD things, so I have no complaints!

This past Tuesday night, I had the distinct honor of hosting and styling the 4th annual Robbins Brothers Diamonds and Desserts event at the Glendale store, and it goes without saying that it was quite an action-packed night!
Dress from, Diamond ring by Simon G.

I've partnered with Robbins Brothers this year as an official brand ambassador for the massive engagement ring store, and was proud that this event also benefitted Dress for Success, as well. I volunteer regularly with Dress for Success as a personal stylist and style expert, and it meant a lot to me to be able to shine a light on their incredible organization, too.

Honored to host the #DiamondsandDessertsLA event for Robbins Brothers

The evening was filled with festivities including incredible dance-worthy music by DJ Mattmatics, delicious treats and savory bites by Amy's Culinary Adventures that kept the crowd happy and satisfied. Oh, and did I mention there were fabulous mini manicures for the guests, too? Yep, #DiamondsandDessertsLA pulled out ALL of the stops this year!

Still dreaming of these gorgeous marbelized chocolate-covered strawberries!

Best DJ I know--DJ Mattmatics!

I also dressed three gorgeous models (Amanda Nguyen of Feast Fashion Faves, Lyndi Kennedy of Lyndi in the City and Kimber Schroeder) in gorgeous gowns from, and they looked positively perfect, especially paired with stunning diamond jewels from Simon G. jewelry.
For the first look, the models wore sparkly nude gowns, and later changed into a classically elegant white and red theme to close out the evening.

Lyndi smiles backstage while getting ready for her model moment!

Guests had a marvelous time mingling, posing on the red carpet, and trying their hand at winning a number of the fabulous raffle prizes and silent auction items up for grabs from Robbins Brothers.

And that's a wrap!
A HUGE thank you to Robbins Brothers, Simon G. Jewelry, Dress for Success and!
