I've had a lot of energy the past few days and it's been hard to sit on the computer. I feel the need to be busy with a project or something. When I get that itch, and I'm not sure what to do, I head to the closet. It's always very calming to declutter and purge and take stock. I noticed I have added a lot of pink to the closet in the past year, in shoes and in clothing. Pink makes me happy and well why not have it in the house as well?

I'm ready for a change when spring arrives. You know I feel so done with winter and all that. So when I got an opportunity to have a makeover at the new, Halo-A Blow Dry Bar, I jumped at the chance! Last week I headed over to the bright and chic Los Altos location.
Even better, my friend Adrienne Shubin, blogess of The Rich Life(on a budget), did it with me!
We both needed to get pretty for an evening event so it was a perfect timing.

Hello! Hope you all had a happy weekend. We have apparently moved in summer here in California and spring just got bypassed. I had a very exciting last week (coming next), so I spent some down time this weekend working on my home. I noticed I've gotten this thing where I keep adding teal or yellow pieces and they look quite good together. Bright and cheering you know?
Succulents cannot be beat for houseplants. They pretty much grow themselves.

Whole Food's Beauty Week starts today -March 18-24. It's a super time to stop into to your local and check out all the beauty products and learn about new ones. I am loyal to many of the wonderful products they sell including Weleda, Giovanni, Dr Hauschka, and many others. I think it's terrific that Whole Foods has high standards for all their beauty products and does not allow animal testing as well as 50 questionable ingredients that are commonly used in the industry.
This Saturday for the first time ever, Whole Foods will be offering a special 'Hello Beauty' bag for $18 (a $60 value.) This very cute organic bag made by RIJIGreen, a inspiring company dedicated to ending human trafficking. The bags are made by survivors.

There are a lot of choices in this world, especially when it comes to clothes. That's why I appreciate designers like California's Trina Turk. As I try to buy less in this world, I want to buy unique and special as well as good quality. That is the hallmark of a Trina Turk garment- beautiful details you won't find in mass produced clothes, unique colors and fabrics, and above all- superior workmanship. That is why I loved our event on Thursday. It made me proud to partner with such a wonderful company. It didn't hurt that the clothing was beyond gorgeous!

Today I got the opportunity to see the gorgeous Spring II collection from Trina Turk at the beautiful Northern California flagship store in Burlingame. Next Thursday I'm hosting a special style event there from 1-4. You can see the new collection and get 20% off any full priced items in store, including swim! It's a perfect time to get a frock for that special event coming up or just see what Trina's clothes are all about and try on a few looks.
