There's always so much going on that not everything makes it to the bloggy. Thank goodness for instagram and it's instant possibilities. You can follow me there to see my latest purchases, daily fun, more outfits and what I'm eating!
It seems like I am always on the hunt for something. Since the beginning of the year, I have been causally looking for a pair of open-toe booties and haven't had much luck since I couldn't shake the lust of the Balmain booties. I would love to add them to my shoe collection but I know my bank account would just judge me. Luckily since January there's been all sorts of new styles with happier price tags. I'm really loving Winston Wolfe's lace up boot that is awesomely named The Royal with Cheese. Also loving the idea Jerome Rousseau's woven as well as Derek Lam's perforated strappy assortment that cuts out the silhouette rather nicely. Givenchy in any which way and form is always a contender. Hopefully I can make one of these babies mine - soon. They would be the perfect styling combination with summer shorts.

Last Saturday was quite possibly the most perfect California day to spend at the rooftop pool at the Thompson Hotel getting pampered by Joico, Olay, Ziba, Stila and Pivotal PR. At the 5th Annual On The Go Mother's Day Beauty Event, my sister and I seriously got spoiled for hours. We got our nails done by Q Salon (which magically dried in two seconds and still looks perfect), makeup touched up by Stila and eyebrows threaded by Ziba.
Always my favorite, Joico was demonstrating their amazing products by styling our hair. Celebrity Colorist and Joico's stylist George Papanikolas completely transformed my super straight hair to poolside appropriate beach waves. Sounds simple enough but no stylist has manage to accomplish this with such perfection. Pretty sure Joico's Dry Spray Wax and Finishing Spray had a little something to do with it too but they didn't have to convince me. I'm already a believer.
Olay was chillin cabana poolside as well showcasing their new goodies - the Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream and the Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream and Lash Duo. I love how the duo includes eye cream and eyelash thickening serum - completely brilliant and exactly what I need. My sister and I also had our pic taken for the #OlayWowEyes app which sends pictures to a mega screen in Times Square. (You can do also do it from here!)
Aside from the pampering, it was so relaxing to just hang out, drink up tea infused cocktails from Owl's Brew by The Teaologist, munch on mini bites and chat with the celeb guests. Christina Milian, Nicole Murphy and others were there but I have to admit, me and the sis had the best time giggling with The Bachelor's Sean Lowe and his super sweet fiance Catherine Giudici. We had a hilarious conversation that ended with high-fives.
Thanks Pivotal PR for the good times!
