New Faves From Jeffrey Campbell

Lets face it, I love shoes! What girl doesn’t?  I have them stashed everywhere…in my closet, above my washer/dryer, and under the bed. I am always super excited to find a new pair that is fun, fits well and is comfortable. I love Jeffrey Campbell because his shoes are always on point and can be all over the shoe map from practical to totally wild! Remember these “Lady Gaga” shoes I got myself for Xmas a few years ago? Well, here are some of my new faves from his latest collection!

In the meantime, November is here which means the holiday season is about to be in full swing! There are a ton of fun things to do starting today so don’t get left behind! Have a magical weekend!

* Fashionista Superhero Comics? Yes please! Checkout Chapters 1-5 here!

* On Nov 7th at 10pm at The Ace Hotel LA  catch Ira Glass doing Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host. It looks quirky and amazing. Just what you would expect from Ira.

* You can spend An Evening with David Spade at The Bootleg on Sunday Nov.8th. I have always loved him and find him hilarious.

* There is a tribute to George Carlin going on at The Grammy Museum until March 31st 2016. That place is so much fun! I highly recommend it.

Shop
* CMC Sample Sale every Friday from Nov. 6th-Dec. 18th (except Nov. 27th). Get your shop on!

* Each year, dreams are made and soon-to-be-international-pop-stars are discovered on the Citadel Outlets stage during the center’s Annual Tree Lighting Concert. The free family-friendly event runs from 4PM-7PM on Saturday, Nov. 7, leading up to the grand finale lighting of the World’s Tallest Live-Cut Tree. This year’s concert will be co-headlined by Sabrina Carpenter and Laura Marano, joined by opening act Madison Beer.

* Freshly Picked is having a warehouse sale Sat. Nov. 7th from 10-12pm in Lake Forest. Definitely worth The drive!

Eat
* The Big Sur Foragers Festival is going on January 15th-17th 2016 and looks awesome!

Try
* L’Anza Combing Cream is the perfect blowout cream for thick, frizzy hair. This cream leaves the hair shiny, smooth and frizz free!

* Miracle Skin Transformer Night Treatment is a really wonderful night cream that almost acts like an overnight mask. It hydrates, resurfaces, and smoothes with minimal fragrance and is under $100. I have loved everything I have tried from this brand.

* RxQ Vitamins were developed in San Pedro, CA which is near me in Long Beach and has highly polluted air due to it being the home of the LA port. I can’t see any effects from taking these but I feel good thinking that they could be helping to reduce the effects of ozone pollution on my lungs and body health.

* Colon Cleanse Tea by Teami purifies the body from the inside out, cleansing the organs and clearing the digestive track of toxins. Teami is a Florida based company and their teas taste amazing and are free of gluten, dairy,sugar and GMO’s!

 

Lola 76 Made in LA

Happy Monday! Last night was a beautiful night to be at the Long Beach Marina watching the sunset. It is finally cooling off enough to wear this long sleeve chambray dress and my Sam Edelman booties. I also couldn’t wait to show off this gorgeous bag that was made for me by the lovely and talented Gabriela from Lola 76. It is the softest suede on the outside with an even softer purple leather lining the inside. There is a gold chain strap that is detachable and there are 3 magnetic closures so its really secure and it’s made in LA. I absolutely love it! IMG_3945

Along with the bag Gabriela included the sweetest handwritten note on Maya Angelou stationary. I could feel her passion. It is something of beauty. The note says, “Brittany I hope you enjoy your Lola. “The Met” was inspired by my first trip to NYC. With all the electricity in the air, the history of the punk rock scene, the elegance of the Met and Lincoln Center, I wanted to give todays kickass contemporary woman that feel and versatility. Rock it with your favorite band T and jeans or perfect for an evening at the Opera!”
