Violet Iodine & Boobs: #HugsShouldntHurt


, ,

This post is sponsored by Violet iodine, but all opinions expressed in this post are entirely my own.

Every month for as long as I can remember, I’ve had incredibly painful breasts around that time of the month.  They actually grow several sizes, in fact I have 2 different size bras, ones for during my period and ones for when they deflate.  They are so sensitive that I wear a very padded bra during my period because I’m afraid to be bumped due to the pain.  This only exaggerates their growth, which is uncomfortable, but necessary.  Exercise is completely out of the question, as they are so sore, especially when moving.  In addition to the pain, I get very boated and crampy, which also affects my mood (sorry friends and family).  I have tried taking pain relievers, but with little relief.

I’ve come to accept this as my “normal”, but still hopeful that I will find relief someday.  When I was recently approached about a new supplement called, Violet Iodine, I was eager to test it.  Violet iodine is a molecular iodine supplement that, when taken daily, alleviates the most common symptoms of premenstrual breast discomfort, including swelling, tenderness, aches and heaviness and it promotes optimal breast health. Visit for more information.

I’m very excited about the Violet Iodine supplement and how it can help me feel better during that time of the month and beyond.  I’m ready to say goodbye to boob pain!  Check back in about a month for my review…

Join the Blogger Babes and Violet Iodine on Tuesday, July 14th for a special #HugsShouldntHurt Twitter Party from 8 to 9 p.m. ET. Get all the details here:

Introducing, SanD!


, , ,

New artist (and my new obsession), Sandra Davis, is a professional LA based model who has walked for various designers throughout Fashion Week, in addition to being featured in innumerable catalog shoots and editorials.  However, now she is proving that she is more than just a pretty face, and is making a break through into the music industry as “SanD”.  As of July 4th, she has come out with the pre-release of her first single, “Conquering The City”, featuring Grammy nominated artist, D’breeon.  SanD’s motive and inspiration for her songwriting was to maintain the modern, hip hop beat that we all like to bump in the car, but while maintaining a strong, positive message.  Within the first 24 hours, the song has already made it on to the Top 40 list on Reverbnation and is continuing to skyrocket.  Make sure to stay on the look out for SanD as she continues to make her way up through the charts.

Check her out!

An Evening At The French Laundry



I had the honor of dining at The French Laundry for the second time a few weeks ago.  The French Laundry is a French restaurant located in Yountville, California, in the Napa Valley. The chef and owner of the French Laundry is Thomas Keller.  It is absolutely the most amazing dining experience I have ever had.  The founder, Chef Thomas Keller, is renowned for his culinary skills and his exceptionally high standards.  I also had the privilege of a private tour by the famous chef himself.  I had to control my enthusiasm, but inside I was bouncing off the walls.  😉

“A great meal is not about the food and wine. A great meal is an emotional experience.” -Chef Thomas Keller

Chef Keller full of excitement & passion as he explains the current kitchen remodel.  Amazing!  😉

Laguna Beach is one of my favorite places and yesterday I spent the day there with my mom for her birthday.  It was an absolutely perfect day!  😉

The Cliff Restaurant is one of my favs!  It has great food, but mostly I love the amazing view of Laguna.

Firmoo – Vision & Fashion The Frugal Way


, , ,

I was so excited when my Firmoo eye glasses arrived!  I wear glasses to see distances and it was time for a style update.  Firmoo came to my rescue and sent me a beautiful pair of thin framed burgundy specs.  They fit amazingly well and I love the way they look!  Firmoo makes high quality frames and lenses with accurate prescriptions.  All eye-wear provided by Firmoo goes through a strict inspection by their experienced opticians before shipping to ensure the accuracy of the prescription.  They also offer a vast selection of classic and fashion frames for you to choose from.  All of these frames are elaborately picked by their staff from thousands of popular frames in the market.  Best of all, their glasses are inexpensive despite the high quality.  They also make ordering incredibly easy by guiding you step-by-step through checkout.  You’re finished in minutes once you’ve selected your frames.

KALEIDOSCOPE by Camille Wood

I had the honor of walking the runway for the AMAZING designer, Camille Wood!  Camille debuted her Kaleidoscope collection on Saturday, April 25th.  Her designs are absolutely beautiful and perfect for the girl who wants to be noticed.  I wore the “flirt” dress, which is so perfect for a day at the beach, poolside or drinks with friends.  The entire collection is vibrant and fun.  Take the challenge, put on one of Camille’s designs and you are sure to smile and stand out.  I love you, Camille!  😉

Beauty Boutique LA


, , ,

I had one of the best facials ever recently at the Beauty Boutique LA by, Natalie Bolton. Clients have previously called her the ‘skin whisperer’ and a ‘true healer’ due to her ability to resolve skin problems that other estheticians have failed to help with.  I definitely left with a “glow” and feeling refreshed.  You can learn more about Natalie here and I highly recommend that you pay her a visit, you won’t regret it.  Thanks Natalie!

Here are some pics from my blissful treatment.  😉

Meet Natalie!

Have a great day!

The stunning collection features lace embellishment and rich textures adorned with patterned details.  Nouveau Riche showcased their fall collection featuring signature elements of leather, lace and chains. Closing the show was Sanyae Demure. Combining floor length hemlines with high slits, and long sleeve bodices with plunging necklines, Sanyae Demure ushers in a new era of womenswear.

The grand finale opened with Cary Santiago’s collection of impeccably detailed pieces. Crowd pleaser House of LiJon debuted their one of a kind chainmail armor. New York designer Hallie Sara brought the true meaning to the term FW 2015 with her Luxurious and perfectly tailored collection featuring fine leathers & furs for both Men and Women.
