Way Cool

People always ask if I love having a answer is a resounding YES!!!  Even though I started my blog relatively early on in blog world, I regret not starting it even sooner as its given me a national voice that I never could have achieved by just doing local television.                                                                           

Case in point- I was so honored when Elizabeth Street, a global website for stylish Moms with listings across the world such as London, Madrid, Toyko and Hong Kong asked me to be one of selected few Moms for Dallas.  They found me initially from my blog as a Shopping Expert in my locale.  "Way Cool!"  And what a cool site.....Click on "DALLAS" to check it out.:)) 



OCCUPATION: TV Host, producer and writer of Shopping is My Cardio TV
MY STYLE: Trendsetting but timeless—I pride myself on finding that latest must-haves of the season and making them my own.
I LOVE DALLAS BECAUSE: Dallas is such a great place to raise a family—easy and hassle-free. Being from L.A., where getting a few errands done in one day can be a challenge, I truly appreciate the quality lifestyle Dallas provides.

The sweet smell of summer sunscreen

This year some new sunscreen options have hit the market that I'm excited about.....and whether your preference is oil, mist or lotion, I have tried and tested three options that guaranteed you will LOVE!
                                                             MIST: Supergoop!
An SPF 50 Antioxidant-infused Sunscreen Mist with Vitamin C.  It smells great, easy spray on that you can apply to wet or dry skin and its Oxybenzone Free.

                                                               LOTION:  COOLA
This "Classic"Sunscreen by Coola, is deliciously scented in Plumeria and quite honestly is the best moisturizer sunscreen I've ever tried.  It could double as just "moisturizer".  So hydrating and the fact its SPF 30 and organic is icing on the cake.
It's rare to find a Sunscreen Oil base in SPF 50, in fact, it's the only one...and it's awesome!  Light, non-sticky as it absorbs easily into the skin and comes in a light, beach inspired scent.  Also available in SPF 30 and SPF 15 varieties.
All three are fabulous sunscreen options this summer~

Welcome to Dallas....

It's a fact that Dallas is the city known for it's "Shopping Nirvana", which of course makes my job so easy. :)) Top retailers from all over the world clamber to get into our market and the latest catnip straight from the UK is AFTERSHOCK LONDON.  Imran Sheikh, U.S. Director for Aftershock London, said; "Great consideration went into selecting the city for our flagship store.  We researched every key location in the U.S. and Dallas had the a large number for unique features that made it an excellent place to launch our brand."  The Plaza at Preston Center was buzzing last night, as I attended their fabulous Grand Opening event celebrating it's launch.

A salivating array of gorgeous formal and casual wear, AFTERSHOCK LONDON has an amazing selection including the eye candied wall of bags, shoes and accessories.  Even better, their inventory constantly changes, so there's a slimmer chance of playing "who wore it best" when attending events on the Dallas circuit.
Of course, I did not leave empty-handed, making the first purchase of the night, inspiring others to hit the "tills". :))

The Sweet Sound of Corks Popping!

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the LOOK Cinema and Moet & Chandon sponsored cocktail party and Premiere Screening of The Great Gatsby.  Corks popping, champagne flowing and great photo ops....My kinda party :))

If you haven't already been to LOOK Cinemas this is a movie experience like no other!  Nick & Sam's restaurants are attached to the theater making the culinary experience just as special as the movie.  More locations to follow throughout the Metroplex AND around the U.S, I'm predicting great things for this chain.
P.S.- The movie was great, especially the costume designs and you will notice lots of product placement for the Moet brand....
