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.

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).

A Tartan Tale by MAC

Here’s another limited-edition collection from MAC Cosmetics that’s hard to resist for the holiday season.  The beautiful colors and preppy packaging make me want to dress in plaid and take off to the European countryside.  The Tartan Tale includes sets of glitter, nail lacquer, lipstick, powder blush, mineralized eyeshadow and mascara. The cute tins and bags are pretty enough to use long after your Scottish wanderlust subsides.

Roberto Cavalli Diva Bag 2.jpg

Roberto Cavalli‘s DIVA bag has our names written all over it.

“The beauty of women has always inspired me… I have created a bag whose curvy, delicate shapes are reminiscent of the purity of the female body. But women must never forget that personality is the most glamorous accessory of all,” says the wise 70-year-old fashion designer.

The DIVA bag debuted at Cavalli’s 40th Anniversary Spring/Summer 2011 show in Milan last month and comes in an array of rich colors and skins like supple leather, python, and calfskin.  It will be available in November ranging from $1,205 to $3,060 and celebrities have already been spotted sporting the next ‘It’ bag.

Cavalli’s entire collection for next season simply took my breath away making me want to prance around in his clothes all day, every day. The barely-there python prints are perfect for capturing the cool factor of those 1970s Los Angeles girls who only dated rock stars.Enjoy the video of the Cavalli S/S 2011 show below featuring some of the world’s top supermodels.

Bringing Bollywood Home

Bollywood Couple CushionBollywood Lady Cushion

It’s almost Diwali, the festival of light, and these kitschy pillows from Urban Barn are making me smile.  They are perfect for adding a bit of Bollywood glamour to any lounge space. Who doesn’t want Aishwariya Rai or Hrithik Roshan gracing their home?  The sequined pillows show the Bollywood superstars in their decadent costumes from the 2008 Jodhaa Akbar period film . Rekha who ruled Bollywood long before today’s ‘it’ girls is also not forgotten.

The jute rice bag cushions would most certainly amuse the farmers back home in India.
