Thank God for Red Lipstick: The Adventures of the Lipstick Loving Room Mom

Blogging, for me at least, is a chance to share a snapshot of my life and share a little bit about who I am, what I do and how I made it happen. Sometimes it is one of these, sometimes all three and sometimes, as in the last month or so, none of the above. I have been living life “offline” and the snapshots of … Continue reading Thank God for Red Lipstick: The Adventures of the Lipstick Loving Room Mom

Get That Style: TGFRL Gets A Panama Hat

So it’s almost summer and the sun, as the case it almost ALWAYS is in Southern California, is shining.  A few weeks ago, around the time I decided I needed to be glasses girl, I also decided that I needed to recreate the sort easy chic of one Nicole Richie, and get myself a fantastic summer hat. The picture that inspired it all was of … Continue reading Get That Style: TGFRL Gets A Panama Hat

TGFRL: Black Swan Chic Edition

Black Swan, the 2010 film starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis overwhelmed me with a childlike obsession with all things ballerina chic flecked with the very “grown up” sexy these two leading ladies exude. As I have been hitting the Bar a bit hard lately – the Bar Method ballet bar-based workout, not my local cocktail purveyor, I have been slowly melding my love of … Continue reading TGFRL: Black Swan Chic Edition

Sleep On it!: Today’s Jam, Silk Pillowcases

Silk is something you are sleeping on. Literally, WAKE UP. You are probably NOT sleeping on silk pillowcases and sheets and you should be. At least on the pillowcases if not the whole shebang. For a moderate investment, you are buying yourself some luxury, comfort and a passive beauty treatment with actual health benefits (less allergies, cooler more restful sleep temperatures, more skin hydration). Satin … Continue reading Sleep On it!: Today’s Jam, Silk Pillowcases

Boho Mama & the Soulful Circus: A Day in the Life and Style of TGFRL

80 Degrees is not my jam. Heat in general isn’t and anything more than 75 and sunny in unnecessary for me. But since I live in sunny southern Southern California, I have to dress for heat for huge portions of the year. I feel like May through October does me wrong in this department. Luckily for me I am not shy and don’t have an … Continue reading Boho Mama & the Soulful Circus: A Day in the Life and Style of TGFRL

TGFRL’s Foray into the World of the Rockin’ Model Workout

My girlie V just got engaged. I am about to turn 39. We are both motivating on a fitness and wellness mission together that involves “workout playdates.”  I am as you may have sussed out by now, mostly a yoga girl. A little Bar Method (which should be a lot) because one of my besties OWNS one, teaches it and looks ever-fantastic due to her … Continue reading TGFRL’s Foray into the World of the Rockin’ Model Workout

“I’d like to Thank Tadashi Shoji, Dior and Spanx”: Oscar Party Review

I am a proud member of a prestigious old Los Angeles women’s education and philanthropic organization that is housed in a 1927 Italian renaissance revival building (a national landmark) and is filled with a membership of amazing women from all over the City of Angels. We are writers, politicians, directors, hoteliers, mothers, designers and journalists and our events are to die for. This year we … Continue reading “I’d like to Thank Tadashi Shoji, Dior and Spanx”: Oscar Party Review
