handmade earrings by gypsyposh by tosh

GypsyPosh by TOSH jewelry https://www.gypsyposh.com/  is earthy, eclectic, and simply beautiful. The pieces caught my eye at a launch party for https://www.trnstylist.com/. GypsyPosh by TOSH pieces are both delicate and whimsy, and strong statement pieces are part of the collection as well. They cater to both men and women. I was immediately intrigued… I recently caught up with owner/designer Natashia Blach. This lady is beautiful inside and out! She is so passionate about every piece that she creates, which makes you fall in love with the brand even more. I wanted to know how she got started? Where did the name…

Often in life, the best experiences are often unplanned and unexpected. When you just live your life, let go of the rules and expectations, that is when life is at its best. This past October was no exception to the rule. As my 48th birthday was rapidly approaching, I made a conscious decision to just live and let go. I was asked if I wanted a dinner party, did I want to go out to a club, and I declined pretty much everything that was offered to me. I just wanted to live and let go, and see what happens……

To see Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet as Best Friends and Co-Parents today is inspiring! I loved them as a married couple, simply organically beautiful. “They have so much love for each other,” Zoë Kravitz said of Lenny Kravitz, Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa (Lisa Bonet’s husband), “It makes things so easy that my parents are still very close. My dad and my step-dad get along really well, and my dad loves and is close with my brother [Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa] and sister [Lola Iolani Momoa].” I have a 16 year old daughter and maintain a close relationship with…

Last month, here in Los Angeles, we had the Pan African Film Festival.  One of the films featured was the documentary “City of God- 10 Years Later.”  First of all, if you haven’t seen the film “City of God” I highly recommend that you do.  Released in 2002, it was a little independent film from Brazil that took the world by storm!  It’s about 2 boys growing up in the slums of Rio de Jeneiro in the 1970’s.  One becomes a photographer the other becomes a drug dealer.  It is based on a true story. “City of God- 10 years…

Skimming through the archives of online magazine “Who What Wear”, I came across a very intriguing article. “How much should you really be spending on clothing every month?”  If saving money was one of your New Year’s resolutions, take notes!  According to financial planner Peete Dunn, we should spend 5% of our take home pay. Here is an example of the breakdown.  If you bring home $3000 a month, after taxes, you should spend $150 a month on clothes. So take what you bring home monthly, multiply that by .05, and there is your budget. Now this is simply a…

Let me start by saying, Bubba Gump Shrimp is just not the place for a first date. There are so many inexpensive, unique places here to dine here in Los Angeles.  Bubba Gump Shrimp is just a no! I recently had the pleasure of catching up with my dear friend Stacey.  She couldn’t wait to tell me about a recent first date she had at Bubba Gump Shrimp.  Like many people, Stacey is an online dater, and met a man with whom she found interesting.  She actually reached out to him and they had a meet and greet over coffee.…
