TGFRL is Back from vacation! Sort of…

So, I, the woman behind Thank God For Red Lipstick, am home. At least physically. And in all seriousness, I KNOW that my Afterword is really late in coming, even later if I admit that this isn’t really it, this is more of a “flashback” and a promise that you will see the #OOTD’s (Outfit of The Day) #WIA (What I Ate) and #beautifulviews that … Continue reading TGFRL is Back from vacation!

Russian Night Out at new Mari Vanna LA

My social life these days is hilariously unpredictable in pace. It’s an odd and mostly satisfying mix of family life (our version- since everyone’s is different) and hanging out with the friends I had before and the ones I made after becoming a wife and mommy. The downside – there always is one- is that there is only so much time and so many things … Continue reading Russian Night Out at new Mari Vanna LA

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
