Cuyana Fewer Better Gastronomy Panel

If you’re around this Thursday, I’ll be moderating a thoughtful, food-focused panel at the ultra-chic Cuyana showroom in San Francisco’s downtown Union Square. The name Cuyana means ”to love” in Quechua and this gastronomy panel is one of the featured topics in the Fewer, Better Series. The panelists include an incredible group of food folks from the Bay Area. Hope to see you there!


Dom Perignon - Food FashionistaNext time you finish off a bottle of your favorite champagne, instead of throwing it out after consumption, use it as a jewelry holder for bracelets and bangles. It will clear the clutter from the top-of-your dresser and add a bit of nostalgia to relive those sparkling memories.


Jurlique To The Rescue for the Holidays and New Year – San Francisco

Jurlique Fillmore Street San FranciscoDid you know that Christmas is less than a week away? Yes, you heard me right. The 25th is here in six days, and 2013 will be here in just about two weeks. With the year end and the holidays fast approaching, I’m sure most of you can relate to the twelfth-month stress syndrome! During this time, we are trying to connect with friends and colleagues at holiday parties, while coordinating those last-minute travel and family-visiting plans. On top of all this, we’re still not done with holiday gift shopping, and we’re attempting to tie up all those loose ends to start the new year off fresh.

With all this going on, it’s no surprise that we aren’t looking quite as fabulous as we could be. With late nights come festive times, which translate to lack of sleep, and not-so attractive dark circles. We’re also probably not drinking as much water or getting as much sleep as we should be. I know I’m guilty of this. And like Madonna, my skin is screaming…”Rescue Me”.
Good news, is that there is a helpful solution. For those of you who live in or near San Francisco, you can visit the Jurlique Wellness Day Spa and store at 2136 Fillmore. Enjoy a spot of tea and lavender cookies, while browsing all the holiday gift sets, or enjoying a much-needed beauty treatment. Jurlique gift sets are a true token of love, and your gift recipient (and their skin) will thank you for it. In addition to a flexible price point for every shopper, the gifts come beautifully wrapped and make quite the luxurious statement.
Now that I’ve helped with those last-minute gift ideas and beautifying-treatment tips, you’ll have to figure out who’s giving you that much-needed ride to the airport. Sorry, can’t help you there.

Chevron Design Metallic Gel Nails – Mika’s Manis

If you're going to get gel nails, you might as well rock a design that you won't get tired of looking at after a few days. Since my salon doesn't often do the fancy nail designs; I brought in a photo, chose three different metallic colors including a frost white base, gunmetal center, and a sparkling gold tip. My manicurist topped it off with a black outline to highlight the chevrons.
