Pick for Jadapa: Ash Arnelle Biker Jacket

This coat is perfect for Jadapa’s upcoming trip to San Fransico and Seattle. The wide collar is so chic and the shearling-lined inside provides warmth without having to add a bunch of layers.

A Fashion Fiend’s pick: Winchell Moto Boot by Vince Camuto

This boot combines comfort and style. The gold detail is the perfect addition to glam up a laid back outfit. Subtle accents, but they get the job done.

Pick for Mootz: High waisted shorts from Forever 21

Not your nerd pants anymore! Paired with a sick pair of heels and these former 80’s-style piece, you’ll be looking long and stylish. Zippers, belts, and sailor buttons are popular accents with this style of shorts.

How to Stay Healthy during Flu Season

nutriblast
Beach Pose
I have managed to not get sick all flu season while everyone around me has been dropping like flies. My secret to a strong immune system?
The Nutriblast.
My husband and I are suckers for buying things off of TV. It’s a hit or miss (usually miss). Our latest “As Seen on TV” purchase was the NutriBullet, from the makers of the original Magic Bullet. FYI, this is a totally unpaid endorsement. It’s not a blender and not a juicer, but an “express blender and mixer system”. It really does what it claims to do (for the most part): breaks down your fruits and veggies to an almost pure liquid consistency. But unlike a juicer, you still get the benefits from all of the fiber since it’s not removing the pulp. You can also make sauces!
My basic Nutriblast recipe:
50% leafy greens (spinach is my fav)
50% fruit (your choice)
Add boost (I typically use: flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, or almonds)
Fill to the top with water (I use coconut water)
For an added kick to boost your immune system: add a packet of Emergen-C
Bought Cat and Mootz one, and now we all swear by them!
Stay healthy, loves!

I saw Gaga two nights in a row! Front row in DC and again with my good friend, Lynsie, in Phoenix! Fourth time seeing her perform and it’s still phenomenal!

Last week I had the honor and privilege of attending the inauguration ceremonies of President Obama in Washington DC. I worked on both campaigns (in 2008 from Michigan and in 2012 from Arizona). It was particularly special for me that the inauguration was held on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. It was such a wonderful opportunity, and I am so happy I was able to be part of history!  Also, a HUGE thank you to A Fashion Fiend for styling me for the two official inaugural balls I attended! I received so many compliments!

I’ve been spending a lot of time in the inner city areas of Houston lately and the other day I discovered this beautiful mural! I had planned on a different location but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to capture this work of art.

Saw Gangster Squad (awesome movie, fyi) over the weekend and my Fedora came busting out of my closet! Fedoras add so much style to a simple outfit to give it a more put-together look. I paired it with short cut, cuffed jeans that are currently trending hard, and they provide a relaxed look.

Style these laid back jeans with some sky high or statement heals to glam up. Ballet flats in a striking shade to add a pop of color. Ankle booties are also a warm choice for chilly months.

Petite ladies beware: these jeans can cut off your legs and make you look super boxy. If you want to wear this look, make sure you are adding nude colored heels to lengthen your legs. Also, make sure the jeans you are cuffing are a short length when you buy them. That way, your cuffs are not too fat and you are rolling the same amount of pant leg as taller gals.

Happy weekend!

I played with some different editing tools today. Let me know which style you like best!! 1, 2, or 3!! Thanks!

The weather is finally warming up here in Houston and I was able to attend the advanced screening of the movie, Warm Bodies (opening February 1st), a zombie love story to say the least.

Pretty cute flick. Just know what you’re getting into. The main character is a zombie so their love story involves a lot of grunting, and it’s a little cheesy. Overall though, it was a fun movie.

Golden: Golden Globes 2013

The 2013 Golden Globes aired Sunday, January 14 and was a night of fashion and beauty.
