I know DYLANLEX necklaces have been around for a while now, but I still can’t get enough of them.  They have plenty of new styles to choose from.  I’m telling you, you’ll fall in love with this brand.

This weekend I took my son to the launch party of PLAN CHECK's new kids menu.  We got to sample everything on the “pint size” menu and we both loved it.  From their bacon burger to the smokey fried chicken with yam jam, everything was delicious.  Sebastian even got to create his own
cruller donut which he devoured! The thing that made me the happiest though is the fact that I knew he would find something on this menu he was really wanted to eat.  There’s nothing worse than when your little one does not want anything on the menu.  Plan Check is also very lively so you don’t have to worry about your kids being too loud.  This restaurant is every parent’s dream.  Check out their Sawtelle and Fairfax locations today.

I have to admit that I hit my late 30’s this year and I’m starting to notice some slight changes in my face.  I’m talking about those fine lines that just seem to pop up out of nowhere and the brown spots that tend to appear when I’m in the sun with no hat for longer than 10 minutes.  So I decided I needed a new strategy in skincare.  I want to look natural and I know there are ways to make improvements without doing anything too drastic.  I have found the solution with skin guru GINA MARI in Beverly Hills.  Gina took one look at my skin and knew exactly what to do. And by skin I don’t mean just my face, we’re talking my whole body.  I got the works!  She started me off with dry and wet microdermabrasions to exfoliate me from head to toes. Then she moved on to an oxygen facial which nourished and revitalized my skin with vitamins and enzymes.  I also got a microcurrent around my eyes and saw instant results. My brows looked lifted in no time, and what mom doesn’t need that?  To top it all off I got the LED Therapy which make my skin absolutely glow. I walked out of there and didn’t need makeup all day because my skin looked so flawless.  Going to see Gina Mari is an absolute must. You will feel younger and more beautiful instantly.


Gina Mari Skincare Tips:

- Sunscreen and hats are a must even when going outside to get the mail.

- Stop stressing so much!!  The stress of not having that cookie after lunch is worse on your skin than actually having it. Just do everything in moderation.

- Only worry what you look like a arms length because that how people really see you.  Give yourself a break! You look great.

- No picking at your skin!!  It only makes it worse. Leave that kind of thing for us professionals ;)

- If you’re going to do fillers, do them moderately.  If you do too much it starts to not look natural.

I don’t know about you, but midway through summer with the kids out of school I always seem to be in need of a drink at the end of the day (don’t judge).  If you need a night out like me every once in a while, then check out a couple of new bars in L.A. called HARLOWE in West Hollywood and GOOD TIMES AT DAVEY WAYNE in Hollywood.  Both have amazing decor (Harlowe looks like Hollywood’s Golden Age and Good Times At Davey Wayne is straight out of the 70’s).  The drinks are delicious too.  Feel that summer stress just melt away once you step in the doors of these chic new bars.

I was lucky enough to go to FRENCH LAUNDRY'S 20th Anniversary Party in Napa, CA and let me tell you, it was an incredible event.  The food and wine was remarkable and proof that it is hands down one of the best restaurants in the world.  If you are in Napa anytime soon make sure to make a reservation now because it's hard to get in.

If you have kids like mine, they mean well, but they make a mess out of everything.  So when they ask to watch a movie on my laptop my first reaction is usually to say no because I know they’ll leave my keyboard a hot mess.  Well I got to test out a new product called KID LID (coming out soon) and it changed everything.  KID LID is a simple, smooth and durable keyboard cover that completely kid-proofs your computer and protects the keyboard from toddler hand pounding and drink spills! It’s genius! I mean, how many times have you had to restart a movie because they wont stop hitting buttons on the computer?!  They’re also coming out with products to cover your smart phone and tablet.  For more information check out Kid Lid’s Kickstarter page.  You’ll want one too!
