Sue Wong’s Epic Fashion Show at the Avant Garde Masquerade Ball


I had a blast at internationally renowned designer Sue Wong’s EPIC fashion show at the Avant Garde Masquerade Ball. This phenomenal event was held at the Majestic downtown, which was an apropos location as it dates back to 1921 as the original LA headquarters of Bank of America, which is an era that Sue’s designs often harken to!  Many of the vintage design features of this location are similar to The Cedars, Sue historic estate. This enchanted evening was the second annual Masquerade Ball for Michelle Long’s Avant Garde Magazine. Her runway included celebrity guest models Eugenia Kuzmina and Ava […]

Lifecell Launch at the London Hotel

Lifecell's new line

I had a blast at the launch of amazing skincare line, Lifecell’s launch of their new retail collection. This event was held at the luxurious Vivienne Westwood penthouse suite of the super swanky London Hotel. First of all, I LOVE Lifecell’s products, especially the All-in-one anti-aging cooling under eye treatment. Even this insomniac blogger swears by it. I apply it every night and wake up looking rested and restored. Being that I have rosacea and the most sensitive skin in the world (!), no joke, Lifecell is one of the few products I can use without having a bad reaction […]

LA Fashion Week’s Opening Night Gala

With renowned artist Risk, Laura, and Natily

I had the pleasure of attending the LA Fashion Week opening night event thanks to the lovely Laura Sharpe, Founder and CEO of Artists for Trauma (AFT). This event was held at the historic Hollywood Athletic Club right on Sunset Boulevard. I’ve been collaborating with Laura on projects, so it was nice to have a night out and take a break or in my case, eat too many tasty treats from Sugah Rush Bar and drink too many sugary drinks. Bad Vida! I will say that I really enjoyed the Bai drinks especially the Bolivian black cherry flavor and the […]
