ADIDAS STYLE - UNIVERSAL STYLE

What's not to Love about Adidas. Feeling casual and a little youthful these days??  If so, then don't forget to grab a pair of Gazelles. The legendary Gazelle from Adidas was introduced way back in 1968... I'm pretty sure I heard that "Everything old is new again"  Go 50's!!

Thank goodness sneakers are here to stay. Now that we all truly crave the comfort of the sole and the soul... Every season brands from way back when keep raising the bar, and Adidas holds steadfast & true so if you missed the "Superstar" or the "Gazelle"  the first time around you'll have a second chance to buy their trusty kicks again.

Adidas Gazelle

 

Most of the time running around L.A. is a casual experience, so it's fun to have a favorite uniform to throw on for busy errand days. This casual jacket is my favorite all-weather black bomber jacket from Vie Active, and it's on sale right now. I throw it on when I'm headed to my yoga class or when I'm running around day or night. Its scuba-like Vieoprene fabric, so it's made for warmth and comfort.

Adidas makes this skinny cigarette pant.  They have an elastic waistband and hang low on the hips... they are a little baggy and they added their signature "racing stripes" on the side. 

Many times when I'm staring at my clothes, I ask "What do women in Paris wear"...oh yes, black! For a quick out-the-door look when you're running around and on-the-go.

Are you familiar with Cuyana?  I was introduced to Cuyana by a friend and, instantly I was drawn to their soulful vision and this bag. ClareV makes this vibrant green tassle. 

Also at Cuyana you'll find their Leather Travel Case Set.  These also make great gifts for a friend or the man in your life. At $110 you can't beat the price!!  Shop the post below.

I absolutely adore this perfume!

Lacrème Beaute makes the most amazing products and now Victoria added her Fresh Cut Huile Parfum. You will feel like you've been transported to a rose garden amongst fresh cut flowers.

Just a few of my favorite things for on-the-go and feeling youthful, free & smelling pretty!

SELF LOVE ON VALENTINE'S DAY

Wouldn't it be nice to create a daily practice where we can feel how incredibly wonderful we are by learning how to love ourselves? When we begin to show self-love it's amazing how our lives can improve. We feel better, we're kinder to each other, we get the jobs we want, or even create them. Our relationships improve or the negative ones dissolve and new ones begin. It might sound simplistic but don't you find the simplest things are the most profound?  It's time to see you like God sees you. Here are 14 tips for creating space to love and appreciate who you are and appreciate others on February 14th.

1- Speak kind words about yourself

When you wake up in the morning, look in the mirror and say "I love you" speak kind words to yourself, think kind thoughts. What we think on the inside is what our world reflects back to us. When we have self-love, we are able to have love for one another.

2- Watch the Sunrise

Watching the Sunrise in the morning and waking up with the planet reminds you that it's a new beginning. It's the perfect time to say "thank you for today, thank you for letting me begin again"  It doesn't matter where you are in the world, you can wake up with the sun and begin a new day. Express your love for the planet and you will begin to feel love right back. 

Signs are everywhere...

Signs are everywhere...

3-  Walk your dog or cuddle with your cat or talk to nature

If you have a dog, walking your dog not only gets you out into the world and connects you with nature, it's showing love to your animal and they're so grateful to spend quality time with you. You never know what you might see along the way, maybe a sign from the Universe to remind you; You are loved...

4- Take yourself on an Adventure

Even if it's just for the day. When is the last time you took the train? There's something charming about seeing the city by train. When you're looking out the window and watching the world go by you feel nostalgic and be grateful for a little old fashion charm.

6- Send yourself some Love (Goodly)

Wouldn't it be Lovely to receive a box in the mail from a company that actually promotes self Love? Love Goodly is a bi-monthly subscription luxury box service that introduces you to products that take care of yourself and our planet. You will be introduced to brands from all over that are made with Love. Your health and your wellness are worth it!

7-  Take a vision walk

Create your day by walking with a vision. Set out with a purpose and begin by saying; Universe I am aware there are universal forces looking right at me, and I am aware that I am the object of your positive attention. Today all day I will be in conscience awareness that you are right here with me. Loving me, Encouraging me, Inspiring me, Guiding me, Leading me, Laughing with me, Healing me, Uplifting me, Financing me and I am grateful for your continual gaze upon me. Look around at every living thing nature has provided us and recognize the abundance and feel your heart open.

Don't forget to look up

Don't forget to look up

8- Enjoy being by the water

Whether you live by a lake, a river or the ocean, being next to water calms the soul. We can relax, connect with our inner guidance and rejuvenate our cells. After all, our bodies are made up of 65 % water... or just make yourself a nice bubble bath.

9 - Make yourself a nice meal

Because you're worth it. There are so many incredible recipes to discover on social media, why not get creative and make something you've never made before. Take yourself to the market and splurge. Create a healthy, beautiful meal for yourself, your family or friends.  *I've linked 5 top apps for healthy meals.

10- Think Big

Remember; it takes just as much effort to think big as it does to think small. Have a big vision for yourself, you'll find that if you get in the habit of doing that, the Universe will provide the path to get you there.

11- Write down your dreams

It feels so great to write out your vision, to draw pictures, see the words, feel the emotion, sit back and enjoy the ride. Become inspired by your own words. When your vision moves from thought to paper, you feel alive, you will begin to find ways to make it happen and what the mind sees it wants to achieve.

12- Get together with your friends

Make an evening with your girlfriends for brainstorming, and a few laughs of course. Ask what their goals are, and chances are you'll all find a way to help each other.

13- Stop & Kiss

Yes...just that. Don't forget to take time to Stop & Kiss someone you love.

14- Express your gratitude

 Wake up every day and be grateful. There are endless possibilities when you look at life through the eyes of Love. Having self-love is having the appreciation for the spiritual being you are, and that which created you. Tell someone you love them today, start with yourself. You have so much to offer. 

                                                        HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Linda Rendleman - Women Like Us

Meet Beautiful Linda Rendleman CEO and President of Women Like Us.

I was honored to meet with Linda Rendleman and in awe of her work and most of all the passion in LInda's heart. I am so grateful for women like Linda who tirelessly do the work and lift women just like us up no matter where they are in the world.

Linda was born in the Midwest at a time when women wore white gloves and hats, and for the most part, a woman’s place was in the home, In the 50’s. She grew up appreciating June Cleaver…and Donna Reed. She thought somehow, wearing pearls and high heels around the house with an apron trimmed in lace, and having a family would make her dream complete. When she was a teenager and ready for college, she was told it was best to become a teacher or a nurse. Linda had a voice inside that kept saying "let's go to New York, let's do a little more"  Linda felt she had a different mission, she wanted to see the world and be a bigger part of it.

 

By the time Linda was married at 19, and a mom by age 21…She held onto the dream of the white picket fence and all that came with it, but circumstances can be life’s teacher.  She quickly realized it was time to dig deep, ask the real questions and move on.

 She had a dream of a foundation to support and help women to exercise their own power, Linda wore many hats along the way, then she was delayed by unexpected news of cancer and placed that dream on hold. Linda envisioned a healthy body would be waiting for her, and soon she would continue her mission. 

And she did! Stronger than ever Linda began to meet the right partners along her journey, and today she is here healthy and cancer free.  Linda is championing women who have the heart, soul, and fortitude to see the work that needs to be done in the world and together they are making that happen. When women work together there are no limits, there are no walls, there is action. You can hear Linda's story on the video with Focus Magazine below.

Linda's motto: I not only want to live the length of my life, I want to live the width of it.

                  When you grow up doing what you love, what you love grows you....me

                       "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.”

My father and mother owned a beauty salon in Bucharest, Romania. My mom was a hairstylist and also a skin specialist. My father was a barber. They worked together, side by side, for many years. As a little girl, I would sometimes go to the salon with them. At six years old I was already talking to clients as I watched my parents perform their art. Remember, in Europe, to become a cosmetologist is like becoming a nurse here. The years of schooling to become a skin expert or a hair stylist in Europe is equivalent to going to a four or five-year college.

The beauty of my mother and her salon is she always had handpicked flowers. She loved sunflowers! They were so fresh from the country fields I would try to sneak and eat some of the seeds. My mom would also have parsley and herbs around that she would preserve in jars filled with water. What I remember most about them working is; clients loved them. It was more like a family than a client relationship, and that is what I strive to bring to my work. So many of clients have become my dearest friends, as one became my made of honor. My mom always said, "Treat every face like it’s your last face." My husband told me one face at a time you will succeed. My right hand Stacey told me to always act with grace. I believe with this combination I can’t lose. 

 I came to the US on my own.  As I became an adult, I considered and even pursued various professions to make my own mark – something different than my background.  I became a SAG actress and a certified Pilates instructor.  But even while I was attempting to make these other dreams come true, my true passion always came back to the skin.

  Kát's motto - Your beauty is my life...

Thank you Kát for your generosity and your friendship...xoxo

 

 

ACTUALLY ORGANIC ARGAN OIL

Are you looking for the perfect elixir for your body and hair?  Argan oil, which is often referred to as liquid gold, is believed to have age-defying and restorative properties and, is becoming increasingly sought after in the multi-million dollar beauty industry. One of my goals for 2017 is to take time to moisturize my skin, hair and nails!  I do just fine with caring for my face, but I've been neglecting my body parts...It's time to invest in the overall body and I'm starting with Actually Organic Argan Oil.

Before the holidays Actually Organic reached out to me to see if I would be interested in trying their product. I began to read up on Argan Oil, I had heard a little about it, but knew very little. Argan oil is from Morocco... I've traveled there and loved it. The Moroccan people seem to be very passionate about their oils & spices... amongst other beauty secrets. I was intrigued that the oil came from trees located in a village named Argana, in the city of Agadir Morocco, hand picked and made by women only in this specific area. The trees grow wild and Moroccans have been using Argan oil as a skin moisturizer and hair conditioner since ancient times. In 1510 African explorer Leo Africanus came across the Argan oil when he was traveling across Morocco. From there, the oil entered Europe where only the rich and wealthy class had access to this expensive, rare and exotic oil.

The Argan Tree produces tasty fruit and the native goats Love the taste! The goats travel up the tree to eat the fruit then leave behind the nut that falls to the ground, later to be gathered by the women. The nuts fall from the tree in May and are collected in June and July.

The team from Actually Organic spent a good amount of time in Morocco meeting with local farmers who grow the Argania tree. Scientist discovered that it is full of rich antioxidants rejuvenating Vitamin E and other nutrients that add glow, youth, and beauty to the hair skin and nails. 

It takes one worker over 40 minutes to crack enough nuts to create 1 - 4oz bottle. There are zero preservatives and chemicals, it's purely natural. You can add this magical oil to your mani-pedi routine, don't forget to take it with you to your manicure appointment, and have your manicurist apply after final coat.

Less known than coconut oil or jojoba oil. Argan oil itself contains more antioxidant and cell regenerative properties than olive oil, grape seed oil, and avocado oil combined. When applied to the skin, it absorbs quickly, and without an oily or greasy film...at all! Your skin is left feeling silky, and smooth satiny.   

Bee -Lieve in Yourself Necklace

Not only do I have dry nails and skin, but after constant us of a curling and flat iron the ends are super dry, After styling my hair I place a bit of the oil in my palms, rub together and run it on the ends of my hair.  It truly helps to restore shine and luster. Things are lookin up!

Don't forget your nails!

Don't forget your nails!

By combining a few drops of the Argan Oil to my favorite body lotion I feel like I have added moisture back to my body! Let's face it... 40 and over the skin becomes incredibly dry, this has brought hope back to having that smooth touch to my legs and arms.

We've only begun to hear about the many skincare benefits of argan oil. It seems like new research appears every few months promoting more and more benefits -- For now, I am absolutely loving the overhaul of smoothness. There is a lot of moving parts that take place to reach the final outcome of this little bottle of "gold" It's quite a story and if you love organic, you can't help but appreciate the Argan Oil history.

Thank you Actually Organic, I now have a new and fantastic Oil enriched with history to add to my daily beauty routine, It's been a great experience. Thank you for reaching out to me.

1 - I've had zero breakouts from applying directly to my face

2 -  A little goes a long way

3 - It has a tiny smell that goes away in about a minute

4 - It's been a miracle worker on my cuticles & hair

TRUNK CLUB - CULVER CITY

Do you ever get overwhelmed with shopping? Do you open your closet and say "I have nothing to wear!" Wouldn't it be lovely to have a little assistance with styling? With so many brands and so many trends, It can be hard choosing the right pieces that will both flatter your body and express your personal style. When I first heard about Trunk Club, I was excited to pay a visit to their Culver City location here in Los Angeles.

I was first introduced to Trunk Club from an invitation to an event. I was so impressed with their space in Los Angeles and everyone that works there is incredibly helpful and happy! What a lovely way to shop, to really enjoy your time trying on clothing and exploring different styles. Was it as simple as it seems? The answer is Yes... and there is no fee to join...Seems like a fun club to be a part of so... Welcome to Trunk Club.

Shopping solo is not half as much fun as shopping with your girlfriends. I asked Shalini Vadhera & Michelle Day Gillette to join me for a day of shopping, sipping a little champagne and of course, having fun! Meet my shopping squad; Michelle & Shalini.

Trunk Club speaks to their clients via email or phone.

FAQ

FEELING FREE & DRY AS A DOVE

Let's talk about feeling carefree and dry. I was recently introduced to Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant by Simply Stylist and I can honestly say I'm a fan. I'm a mom and blogger on-the-go from sun-up to sundown. We're out the door to school at 7am, walk the family dog, off to workout, headed to events, end the day waiting in the carpool line, then rush home to prepare dinner, so you betcha I need to feel fresh and stay dry all day! Sometimes I am changing clothes 3 -4 times a day. I've tried the gels, the roll-ons and not until now, have I finally found a deodorant that works all day, and for two days! Yes... for 48 hours I no longer think about embarrassing sweat stains on my clothing.  I live in Sunny Los Angeles, yes we love the sunshine, but along with the sun comes the heat, and the need to stay dry all day long. Take a journey with me as I discover a little hidden gem in Culver City called "The Platform".

No matter what you do, whether you're hanging around on or off the job no woman wants to feel sweaty and have an odor. When you're in your 50's you don't want to worry about sweat stains! Going through hot flashes was enough, of course, we feel it, but you don't want it to show on your clothing too! I finally found a deodorant that keeps my armpits dry and odor-free, no matter what's going on around me.

Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant can is so light weight, I also love the design and it's super light-weight.  You have several scents to choose from Soothing Chamomile, Cool Essentials, Nourished Beauty, Original Clean, Sensitive Skin and Beauty Finish

 

You don't have to wait a second for your deodorant to dry after you spray it on because it goes on instantly dry  and there is absolutely no residue.  You have a choice of six different fragrances: Nourished Beauty, Cool Essentials, Revive, Beauty Finish, Revive, Skin Renew and Sensitive. Dove.com provides answers to all of our questions along with incredible information and stories of inspiring women doing extraordinary things.

It's so easy to use:

Shake it well. Hold the can 6” away from your underarm and spray. No need to wait for your deodorant to dry...you're ready to go, it goes on instantly dry!  One spray can will last up to 8 weeks. Dove Dry Spray contains 1/4 moisturizers so you get a little TLC for your underarms too

It's worth a try!  We're out there living busy lives, and there's no reason to worry about wet underarms anymore. Shake, Spray and Go.

The mist instantly dries on your skin and doesn’t leave you feeling wet or sticky. You simply shake it twice, spray it on your underarms, get dressed without worrying about white streaks on your clothing. The New Year is right around the corner, why not introduce Dove Deodorant Dry Spray into your daily routine. I'm constantly dashing to meetings and of course, you want to feel fresh when meeting people for the first time. I no longer have any worries about sweating or odor thanks to Dove Dry Deodorant Spray.

Being a #DovePartner is perfect for me because I can remember my grandmother and my Mother using Dove Soap when I was younger, now, three generations later... I'm continuing the tradition for that beautiful feminine feeling...along with beautiful memories.

I love discovering new people, places, and products and I'm excited to have found Dove Deodorant Spray to add to my Hidden gems.

 

It really is the perfect option for women on-the-go, At the end of the day I never have to worry about feeling fresh or dry, and I know tomorrow I can begin feeling ready to take on the day!
