Hello Beauties:)

Hope everyone is having a GREAT week! As I get prepped and ready for my italian vacation (I knowwwwwww!), I wanted to make sure that I paid homage to all the incredible MOMS out there! Since I won’t be able to celebrate on the actual day, I am making sure to celebrate my wonderful mom and grandmother this Sunday!

 I consider myself VERY lucky to be able to call my Mom one of my best friends. She listens…(even when I’m irrational), she doesn’t judge…(even when I royaly F*%k up), She assures me that I’m perfect just the way I am…(even after I’ve devoured a whole pizza and look like a cow), and she gives me my space when I need to think.

This year, I feel blessed to have my Grandma finally here from Argentina,( after 20 years of trying to get her here!) and can’t wait to have a girls day of Love, Family, food, and celebrating! 

I know everyone is different, but after doing some research in looking for the best, unique gifts for Mom..I think I’ve come up with a handful of affordable, beautiful gifts that Mom would freak over:)


Ok. This is STUNNING!!! If it wasn’t Mother’s Day, I’d be buying this beauty for myself gurrrl! This personalized ” love birch cuff”, is a made-to order gift by: Nancy Nelson for Uncommongoods.com


 Love this:

Each one is custom engraved with two sets of initials, evoking the romantic tradition of carving lovers’ names into bark. Jewelry artist Nancy Nelson hand casts the brass band from real birch bark that she collected along the southern shore of Lake Superior in Wisconsin. The detailed texture of the bark evokes the rich, spontaneous stroke of an artist’s brush. The understated heart cutout pairs beautifully with the birch tree’s traditional symbolism of protection and resilience. Handmade in West Virginia. 


Cork watch by: SPROUT.  An eco friendly watch company. I’m sorry…but you don’t have to be a total wino to appreciate the sasssss in this timepiece! It’s different, super cute and wearable, and oh yeah… only…


Love this:

Its slender band is made from all-natural cork, derived from the sustainably harvested bark of the Cork Oak. Cork is durable, flexible, and naturally water resistant. It’s paired with a casing made from biodegradable corn resin, and a mercury-free battery. 


Mom’s would do anything for their children. In fact…they’re so obsessed with us, that they would want nothing more than to wear our initials around their neck. Yep. FLAUNTING! This is a fabulous gift idea babes! Its a beautiful 14 karat filled (won’t tarnish. WAYYYY better than gold plated)personalized necklace by ACharmedImpression at Etsy for ONLY:




This reversible tote handbag by TARGET is modern, stylish & the best part…OVERSIZED! Perfect to throw allll mom shit in! LOL. Work stuff, gym stuff, kid stuff, beach stuff. It’s legitimately the bombbbb. Only:


Love this:

It’s vegan…and reversable!


I don’t care where you live…the sun shines everywhere! Well, at least at some point throughout the year. Lol. Here in LA…Hats are not only an accessory, but a necessity ya’ll. This gem I scored on the H&M website and don’t hesitate to browse at all the other styles available too! Only:


Love this:

Straw hat and actually comes in sizes!!! NOT one size fits all bullshit! woohooo


Last but not least…Thissss! While browsing through my Pinterest, I saw this and thought…WOW. This would be a perfect centerpiece for a dining table! I don’t know bout’ your fams, but we like to eat…we like to throw parties, BBQ’S, and gather around a table to celebrate life… If you don’t know me by now…I’m OBSESSED with flowers…fresh, that is. C’mon, what girl isn’t mmmkayyy! This caterpillar bud vase allows you to pick fresh from the garden, put one flower, or even just a branch. Whatever mix match you want.It’s the perfect way to set the tome for you entertaining. MOM’S FREAK OVER THIS:) ONLY:


Love this:

If a single bud in a vase punctuates your decor with color and life, then this unique piece is more like an entire poem. The row of glass bubbles each holds a small blossom or two, allowing you to create a delicate floral centerpiece. Celebrate the changing palette of wildflowers throughout the year, or capture garden blooms, juxtaposing their shapes and colors into the perfect visual haiku. 

Put a little extra though into it this year, and plan something special:)These are the moments that make memories that really matter. I know you don’t have to wait for a holiday..but to be honest….I don’t think we celebrate life enough. Especially celebrating those who brought life to us. I hope that one day… my kids love me, and respect me as much as I do the women in my life.

To all you Mamasitas out there..




Tis’ the time for…. SHOPPING

In Christmas, fashion, local shopping, Uncategorized On December 17, 2012 0 Comments

The time has come, I’m pretty sure that this is the lastweekend we have to reallyshop for our Mothers, Fathers, Friends, and Lovers. I have to admit…eeeeek, I have not even thought about it till now! Usually, I’m done by mid-December. Tis year procrastination has gotten the best of me.
Does ” I’m super busy” count?

If you are struggling looking for the perfect gift, I’ve got some great ideas below!


For the BETTY’S:

  1. Gorgeous silver hammered stackable rings. They are feminine, classic, and enhance any look. These rings are a product of Nadine Jewelry. These are gorgeous & at around $75 bucks, you cant go wrong. She works with recycled siver, rose gold, and gold. Any girl would absolutely rock these. Check out her ETSYSHOP
  2. Cuisinart handheld mixer. A perfect gift for anyone who likes shakes, smoothies, and just loves being in the kitchen. I thought I had just about everything I needed in my kitchen, until I received this as a gift, then I realized I was missing out all this time. I use it constantly. I used to ALWAYS have to bust out my big blender every time for 1 smoothie. Too much work. This makes my morning protein shakes LIKE A BOSS! At around $50 bucks, she’ll be stoked, and you didn’t brake the bank.
  3. Ok, california doesn’t exactly have snowy weather, but, who doesn’t love a great BEANIE!? We are loving this BURTON beanie. They have got so many styles, it’s hard to choose from. Remember, color is in right now, so dare to be bright. Especially if this chick takes off to the mountain in the winter. Color is the THING! At just $25 dollars, this makes a great stocking stuffer!
  4. These Kerastase products continue to win ALLURE’S best and favorite products award. Learn more about their amazing and innovative technology on their website. These are a great gift! Being a stylist myself, I know, very well, the importance of using the best products for your hair. What girl doesn’t want to protect their hair from blowdrying and other heat styling. Nobody wants dry hair, right? These thermique products ensure full spectrum protection while smoothing and add nutrients to weakened hair. It’s hard being a girl people! We can’t always buy nice products for ourselves, it gets expensive. So, I am positive any babe would freak when they see this wrapped or in a stocking. If you live anywhere close to SASSOON Beverly Hills, we are offering karestase gift packages for a great discounted price for the holiday! Stop by!
  5. Baby its cold outside!!!! This awesome NORTH FACE running jacket is super light while adding protection from wind and cold weather . If we don’t have the proper gear, it really does make it hard to want to exercise outside. I have some great Northface gear that I’ve had forever. The quality is impeccable, you wont regret it!
  6. Ahhhh, Gift this amazing wine! I’m a HUGE fan of Santa Barbara Winery. Their wines are at a great price point and are exquisite! Every girl loves a great bottle of wine. My personal favorite is their pinot noir.
  7. Last but not least, this could be one of the best gift ideas ever! The POLAR heart rate monitor watch. Best gadget for a FIT girl! Improves fitness level by monitoring what heart rate zone you are in, cals burned ,and soooo much more! Worth the price. Invest in health!

Boy oh boys…They need love too;) I actually really love to shop for boys. I’ve come up with a few options whether it be for your man, dad ,brother or friend. Let the shopping begin!

He doesn’t have to be an avid backpacker to appreciate a great travel pack. I think every guy should have one. It’s multi use, they can be for camping, backpacking, traveling light ( no suitcases) , or used for long hikes. REI has a wide variety of awesome packs ranging in affordable prices. Hurry and take advantage of the free shipping!

NFL Sunday ticket is mos def on most guys wish list. C’mon, obvious. He will freak if you surprise him with this gift. A football lovers dream. Something to think about ladies!

Looking for a great stocking stuffer? STANCE socks are it!
STANCE is dedicated to the spirit of individuality with a design philosophy that believes in expression and function. Super unique and creative, with the best fit. Made with the highest quality materials. Check them out! They’ve got some great looks for the Betty’s too!

I’ve got news for you ladies…guys secretly, are soooo into their hair. They tend to just used whatever we’ve got in the shower, mostly because they just never know what brand to purchase. They don’t know what is good or what suits their hair type best.Honestly I think some guys are just a ill embarrassed to buy hair products for themselves. With the new Kerastase Homme mens line you can’t go wrong. These products provide strength and density for the specific needs of men’s hair. Maintaining hair mass is the concern of 70% men. * The first dual action hair maintenance system designed to leave hair feeling and looking stronger, thicker and refreshed.

I’ve never seen a NIXON watch I didn’t love. For men and women. These watches are of the highest quality, and come in so many different styles. This is the gift.

Last but not least…if your guy is into camping…this is the coolest ! A portable burner by JINYU. Small, compact , and with a sup sleep design. Something different and will definitely show that you were thinking outside the box!

Happy shopping beauties! I gotta get to it myself! We only have a week left! Ahhhhhhhh
