2013-10-11T10:41:34.848-07:00

Last night Heidi Merrick welcomed us into her Los Angeles home for an intimate Moroccan dinner party for 12 honoring her Spring 14 collection. Nested in-between palm trees and lush bugainvillea (insta pic here),  we sat  outside at one beautiful long candle-lit table passing Mediterranean dishes as she shared her beautiful new collection one outfit at a time.We all couldn't get over how laid-back and beautiful Heidi's home was and luckily it had already been documented by the lovely ladies at Glitter Guide -  more of which you can see here.Thank you again for having me Heidi and congratulations on another great collection. xx Photos: Glitter Guide[...]

I popped into the Steven Alan store on La Brea last weekend and goshhhh they're on point! Everything from their home goods to clothing (the outerwear!) and accessories (a mean selection of Clare Vivier bags, incredibly lux cashmere beanies and the most beautiful delicate jewelry I ever did see) had me kvelllllllling.

How perfect are these over-dyed hides (I found some here) for layering and accenting informal spaces? Such a fun alternative to the same-old-same-old black/brown & white.

I'm super excited to share my newest project: Creative Council with UGG Australia.

The Creative Council is aninitiative from UGG that encourages those that they partner with to explore things that inspire them and of course, share their inspiration with others. As a brand that hasn’t been afraid to evolve (yes, these are UGG boots!) while keeping true to the Classics we know and love them for, they are on a mission to help encourage women to find inspiration everywhere and anywhere to take the next step in their lives. With my 30th birthday upon me and the launch of my new site, I’m excited to literally and virtually take #thenextstep with them.

To kick things off, we put together a fun little video honoring the project. I'm so excited for what's to come and I hope it inspires you, too!

**This post is a collaboration with the
Creative Council**

beauty inspo: the dark & embellished french mani

2013-09-30T10:49:13.137-07:00

(image) (image) (image)
Leave it to Marc Jacobs (on his Spring 2014 runway) to switch up the french mani by adding both dark colors and crystal embellishment to the tips (Swarovski - fancy!). 

"Marian Newman created a textured manicure for the show, using Jacobs’ Bark! nail polish, which is slated to launch in the summer of 2014. The polish had embedded Swarovski crystals at the top, which were then covered by another layer of polish. “Especially for summer, it’s so wrong it’s right,” said Newman." - via WWD 


Kind of dope, ya?

I teamed up with Whitney Port for not one, not two but three LEAF (one living, one eating and one fashion) videos. Woooot!


For our cooking video, Whitney taught us how to make one of her moms go-desserts: no-bake Rocky Road.

As in, no turning on the oven. As in, only 3 ingredients. As in, the DELICIOUSNESS that is rocky road!!!

Consider it my new go-to for hosting (or bringing to) a party. Hope you like our vid!

You'll need:
- 2 12 oz. bags semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1 bag of mini marshmallows

1. Microwave chocolate in 30 second intervals until melted
2. Stir in peanut butter & add in marshmallows
3. Coat a 9 x 13" baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray & pour mixture
4. Refrigerate for 2 hours, or until hard
5. ENJOY!


p.s. we release new videos every tuesday and friday which you can subscribe to here and our official website is finally launching in november. ahhhhh #dreamsdocometrue.

a peek inside: david karp's williamsburg loft

2013-09-25T12:42:03.657-07:00

How beautiful is this zenned out Williamsburg loft which belongs to the founder of Tumblr, David Karp?"I DON’T LIKE SCREENS very much,” says David Karp, founder and chief executive officer of Tumblr, the popular microblogging platform.  “Big bright monitors drive me nuts”; screens in the bedroom are “gross.” He takes his rule seriously, for in Karp’s newly renovated loft, in south Williamsburg, Brooklyn, screens are scarce, as is, for that matter, anything particularly shiny or smooth. It is, instead, a dedication to all that is aged, rough or both: ancient bricks, weathered concrete, blackened steel and reclaimed oak."I don’t want our house doing very much. It’s a quiet space, with few distractions." #respectMore about David Karp's Williamsburg loft on the NYTimes and a few more pics after the jump...Photos: NYTimes [...]

isabel marant for h&m leaked

2013-09-25T08:26:38.805-07:00

Ok, ok, I know what you're thinking. "When is this going to be released so I can buy ALL of it?"

The answer is November 14 (but it couldn't hurt to line up now, right?).

"I thought this was a good opportunity to say, 'That belongs to me'," designer Isabel Marant said to British Vogue when reflecting on her collaboration with H&M. Instead of watching as the retailer and other fast fashion chains knocked off her designs, Marant decided to partner with H&M so she could ensure her standards of design and quality were followed. "It was my chance to claim certain ideas," she said to GQ UK.

The collection is totally Marant, which means that the trousers are quite skinny, outerwear makes a statement and there are ankle boots with fringe.

Mark those calendars!

More of the collection which was leaked yesterday here.
