Spotlight On: The Couture Gift Collection

Hi loves! I have to admit, the last few weeks have been BUSIER THAN EVER! The good news? March is well on its way, and we can all slow things down soon.
Between the holiday season, Valentine's Day, New York Fashion Week and, of course, awards season, there was no shortage of fabulous parties and glamorous events to attend. And it goes without saying that finding tasteful and stylish gifts for friends, family and colleagues was a big priority, albeit a daunting task. If you're anything like me, the process of shopping, wrapping and sending gorgeous gifts to loved ones is seriously stressful, not to mention time consuming.

So what's a fashionista to do? Enlist the help of The Couture Gift Collection, of course! If you aren't familiar with this amazing company with fantastic, fashionable (#jennchanapproved) taste, you will be soon! It's a fairly new family-owned company that creates and curates gorgeous gift boxes that will surely thrill and delight any lucky recipient.

When I first caught wind of this company, I was intrigued, but decided to check them out firsthand just a few weeks ago. I headed out to Sherman Oaks and had the pleasure of meeting the warm, personable (and super hard-working!) girl bosses of The Couture Gift Collection at their adorable pop-up shop and am pleased to report they're absolutely killing the game when it comes to luxe gifts people actually want!

Pinch me! A fabulous custom gift box filled to the brim with beautiful goodies I actually LOVE?  Best surprise ever. 
Check out my personalized Valentine's Day Couture Gift Box! Diptyque candles, Lauren B. nail polish, Lipstick Queen, Wildfox accessories, Collete Malouf hair pins and more! Oh, I'm a happy girl, indeed. 

 The company brilliantly selects and packages gift items for your loved ones (guys, girls, they do it all!) based on your preferences and budget and puts careful thought and care into each order.

Not surprisingly, they've been making major headway in a short amount of time, too. They were the curators of this year's 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards presenter gift boxes and are also quickly becoming the go-to gifting curators for movie production companies (Sony Pictures, for starters!) for talent, agents and VIP clients all over town, too.

Blogger Life: Spa Day at KO'AN Skin Care in Santa Monica

Big thanks to KO'AN Skin Care and the Vanity Fair Social Club for having me in for a fabulous day of pampering!

In the spirit of awards season, I happily indulged in a body contouring treatment, teeth whitening service by Dr. Sherri Worth and a mini Regenlite laser facial, and feel absolutely glamorous from head to toe!

KO'AN features a tempting menu of anti-aging facials and beautifying body treatments that are constantly evolving to keep up with the latest trends in skincare and medispa services. As a beauty editor, blogger and expert, I'm thrilled to report that it certainly lived up to my expectations and I can't wait to go back!

Loverly First Look Eva Franco Bridal Collection Event

I'm certainly known for my obvious love of fashion and beauty, but I'm also quite immersed in the bridal world, too. Not only have I planned a total of six weddings (with a seventh one happening this year!) as passion projects of mine, but I've also served as a bridesmaid and/or Maid Of Honor nearing the double digits, too. My mom was Maid of Honor NINE times when she was my age, so I'm guessing she passed that "good girlfriend to everyone" gene on to me. :)

Needless to say, I love weddings, I love parties and I love pretty things of all kinds. From dresses and desserts to floral arrangements and invitations, absolutely every detail is exciting to me. This morning, I was invited to a fabulous brunch event for to launch the new Eva Franco bridal collection, featuring some splendid styles in dreamy pastels and flattering silhouettes.

The party was simply stunning with fresh flowers, delicious acai bowls, passed brunch bites, a mimosa bar, photo booth and more. Glam Squad was there to give makeup touch-ups to all attendees, and best of all, I got to take an adorable box of wedding cake home as a party favor. Not too shabby for a Thursday morning!

Check out these fun pics--and be sure to visit for all of your wedding planning needs!

Ready, Set, Sweat!

via Instagram

Yesterday I had a fabulous time mixing fashion with fitness at Beatbike in Tarzana, CA. I enjoyed a seriously sweaty class with fellow editors and bloggers from around town, and best of all, got hooked up with a super cute workout outfit from Fabletics.

Fabletics is an amazing activewear company with a monthly membership that lets you choose a new activewear look each month at an affordable price. Oh yes, and Kate Hudson is their, say no more!

The quality of their workout clothes is really impressive, and the styles keep getting better and better. I previewed the spring 2015 lines, and let's just say I am ultra excited by the prints, patterns and cuts coming out!

Yesterday I wore their zipper legging featuring neon piping, a simple black scoop neck tee and a sleek track jacket with zipper detail and (wait for it...) thumbholes! Who doesn't love that?

Check out Fabletics--you'll be glad you did!
