Getting Coached

While on the island of Maui, enjoy the sun, the beach, the loco mocos, fish tacos and wearing your hoochie resort wear. Beware of Wanas (sea urchins) in the water and old misogynistic white men, who calls themselves "Coach" trying to sell you a timeshare. That's a warning I never thought I'd have to give. And yes, we went to a timeshare presentation because I am not above drinking soda, having a bad continental breakfast while listening to a timeshare presentation for 90 minutes if it's going to get me free drinks, dinner and a surf lesson later. It turns out, I got also got a tall order of man-splanations of what a fashion blogger is added to my entree. First, Coach--you can't call yourself a Coach if you're not actually coaching anybody. Second, when you ask me what I do for a living and because I'm in a crop top and I say I'm a fashion blogger and you don't understand what that means you SHOULD NOT say "oh, so you're a stay at home mom". Third, when I respond with "no, I'm a fashion blogger" DO NOT continue to diminish me and my passion/chosen profession by saying again "you being a stay at home mom is a job". Yes, it is Coach, but I didn't tell you I was a stay at home mom, I told you that I was a fashion blogger. I know, to you, it sounds bullshit, but if you're trying to sell me some timeshares, maybe you should keep that thought on the inside, you know? So you don't offend anyone, so you can sell more timeshares. Other acceptable responses could have been: "Cool! What is that? Lets look at some timeshares!" or "Great! lets look at some timeshares!" or "Lets just look at some timeshares!" And none of those responses should end with "I was just wondering how you make your paper." Why? Because if I don't make the paper doing this, then I'm back to being a stay at home mom because that's the only value I have in this world?

FYI Coach, I'm a fashion blogger, and bringing fashion to the world is a gift I'm giving. Also, I'm an attorney AND a mom. So suck it. Also, I'm not buying yo' timeshares and I took two sodas. #CoachToNoOne #CoachNeedsCoaching #ImTheNewCoach

Living in the city of San Francisco has more perks than just awesome pressed juices, coffees and ramen. It's also a hub for artists of all kinds. This year, I get the honor of attending a performance by the SF Ballet School entitled An Invitation To Dance.  The School is one of the leading schools in the world for ballet and I'm proud to support the student showcase which raises funds for scholarships and financial aid for the students. This day in age, it's more important than ever to support that and empower those that make this world beautiful: art, artistry, and young artists. You can still bUy tickets to the performance here. And here's a preview of my dinner ensemble: in all stars to celebrate future all-stars.

About every six weeks, this beautiful, sharp, blunt-banged bob gets long and choppy and messy and gross. I can't describe the disgusting feeling it gives me to have a bunch air just hanging at my neck. I can't tie it back, I can't pin it back, I can't style it away, I'm just stuck with it all up in my neck. It's like torture that one inch of hair. Thankfully I have a standing appointment at Sassoon Salon with Creative Director Michael Forrey who does his hocus pocus and I have perfect bobbed hair again. My favorite part about hair day is EVERYTHING. I start with a good head massage with a berry smelling shampoo, then a cut and conversation with the always charming and amazing Michael, and we finish with a perfect blow out. Not a bad angle in site. 

Some tips on keeping this bob on point: 1. I get my bangs trimmed every two weeks so that the style always looks freshly cut. 2. To keep my hair soft but not oily, I condition only the tips of my hair 3. For shiny hair, I use a hot oil treatment every two weeks. 4. I spray on a little bit of dry wax to give it a little texture and to keep everything in place.  5. Go everywhere and act like you own the place.

Mid-life Crisis

My birthday is next week, which will officially usher me out of my mid-thirties and into my late-thirties, which in my mind is just a countdown to forty, which is basically a decade of worrying about how much more your skin and body will sag by the time you're fifty. So, it's kind of a big deal. But what I've noticed is that my mid-life crisis has made me WAY more fun now than I ever was when I was younger. For example, all the girls at the Las Vegas pool are complimenting me on my go-to pool ensemble--leather bikini and five inch lucite heels , I cried like a baby when I touched a Backstreet Boy, and I just got huge gold hoop earrings that say "bitch" on them because why not? I mean sure, I feel old and withered but damn I'm having blast. Also, I happen to like old guys who drive Lambos wearing polos and boat shoes. They're still in a Lambo. So, my new mantra is "you're 37, not 27 so act like it and embrace your inner mid-life crisis and let your ass hang out of all your dresses!" #wordstoliveby #notdeadyet
