Hollywood Gets Juicy

Nicole Richie @ Pressed Juicery

Pressed Juicery is helping Hollywood starlets and La La Land residents get back to their ‘roots.’  The relatively new juice bar offers 3 levels of cleansing with delicious concoctions , all neatly packaged up and ready to be delivered to your front door.  This makes life a lot easier on those pressed for time, including celebrity fans like Nicole Richie. Richie recently tweeted,  “I took a weekend job at Pressed Juicery! Who can deny this face?” as she served up fresh cold-pressed juices to Santa Monica customers.  It would be wonderful if the slick juice bar finds its way to other cities so the rest of us can all get juiced up too.

Sexy on the Beach

Phuket one-piece swimsuit by Melissa Odabash

The weather’s getting cold and it’s time to start thinking about where to escape and more importantly, what to wear when you get to paradise.  Former swimsuit model-turned-designer and celebrity favourite Melissa Odabash, recommends packing one swimsuit in your carry-on bag.  In case your luggage is delayed or missing, you can still hit the beach without worrying about finding the right bathing suit.  Odabash is responsible for making the Victoria’s Secret zebra print bikini which became the best-selling item in their 1998 catalogue.

Here are some of my beach essentials with samples from her 2011 collection.

1. Sexy bikini that’s one size too small.  According to Odabash, less fabric makes you look smaller.

2. Glamorous cutout one-piece that can work double-duty in the evenings paired with silky trousers.

3. Loose, flowy jumpsuit for walking to your spa appointment.

4.  A fashionable wide-brimmed hat to protect your beautiful face.

4.  A floor-skimming kaftan that can be worn on the beach and off.

5.  Pretty cover-ups that work as dresses.

Love for Lanvin

Here’s a quick and dirty post on the hugely-anticipated Lanvin for H & M Collection to hit stores on November 20th.  The price tag on these pieces is a bit higher than your average H & M clothes but it’s Lanvin after all.  I can’t wait to get my hands on Alber Elbaz‘s gorgeous ruffly dresses, fun trinkets and bold jackets shown in this brilliant video (below).
