Happy Valentine’s Day, beauties. A consumer driven Hallmark holiday to some, just another reason to celebrate and indulge in all things love to others (like me). Give me a “holiday” involving chocolate, loads of affection, pretty lingerie and possibly something shiny and I’m in. How can one day encompass so many things that I adore? Who cares if cupid is a crock of… ? I’m celebrating.
In case you missed the G, PG-13, and R rated renditions, there’s still time to drop some hints or some dollars on something sweet and special. Never forget that the best gifts are those that are thoughtful. Whether you tuck a handwritten love note behind the pillow or make a favorite meal (in lingerie and heels, of course), it’s the little things that count… but a pair of Louboutins never hurt.

Mark Twain once said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” Well, he certainly wasn’t kidding. One would think living in California is all palm trees and sunshine… well, not so much.
After returning from the east coast this week, I realized how much I miss a real summer. You know, the almost unbearable heat that lingers long past sunset and the humidity that can curl even the most perfectly coifed ‘do. While it rarely dips below forty in California, the summers are never as warm as those of the east coast. It never, ever feels like summer. “They” tell me it gets warm starting in September, but I don’t buy it.
These bright brights are just going to have to get me through the mild California summer. Perhaps wearing something bright will radiate its own heat.

My what big eyes you have… I’ve loved Amanda Seyfried since she played the dopey Karen Smith in Mean Girls alongside Lady Lohan, herself. So what a perfect choice she was for the storybook turned mega movie, Red Riding Hood, released earlier this month. With classic fairytale features, they couldn’t have cast a better beauty for little Ms. Hood.
It doesn’t take much for Amanda to look lovely. With gigantic green eyes, perfectly porcelain skin, and hair that dreams were made of, it would really be hard for this stunning starlet to look bad. Her red carpet style is simple, understated, and very sexy. She knows her legs are her best feature and she isn’t afraid to show them off (smart girl). During her downtime, Ms. Seyfried can be spotted around town with dog, Finn and her signature sunglasses. Her style is always effortlessly chic.
