A bad decision of a quick trip to a local salon for a brow wax in the eighth grade, would have me paying for it for years to come. Pencil thin wouldn’t even begin to describe the horror that I experienced that day. Thanks to amazing products like serums and pencils I’ve had a little help in the growth process. But after ten long years they are finally almost there. Being where I wanted them to be, I decided it was finally time to get them in shape. Being in LA, I went to the place where I’ve only always heard phenomemal things about, and let me tell you.. they’re all true. This is the place where dreams come true, I’m talking Anne Hathaway in the Princess Dairies type of transformation. They truly work magic.
Thinking I would be impressed, but never to the level of which I turned out to be, Anita was nothing short of fabulous. I fell in love with the brow wiz. It fills in in the most subtle way, looking completely natural. Anastasia Beverly Hills is worth a change to a LA zip code.
I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely, Alyssa from EFG PR at Lucky FABB West. I was really excited when she asked to feature me as this week’s Fashion Blogger in their weekly post, “Fashion Bloggers Friday.” Check out the fun interview here!
Since a young age, I have had a strong relationship with shoes. My style is such a mixture of classic separates with a trendy infusion, and depending on my mood a little boho flair. This calls for a variety of footwear to fit my day-to-day ensembles. When it comes to shoes, I definitely don’t discriminate. Whether it’s a pair of Christian Louboutins or a great bargain find at TJ Maxx, I want to make them last. Whether they’re brand new, or ten years old, I take my favorite footwear to a cobbler to get resoled. The $20-25 price tag is well worth extending the life of your shoes. If I’m out of town, I will usually call or visit Saks for a recommendation of the cobbler or repair shop they use. I also search websites like Yelp.com to read reviews from previous customers. If you’re short on time, it’s a good idea to call the shop ahead of time to make sure they will be done in time. The cobbler will simple attach a rubber sole to the ball of foot of the shoe. It helps to prevent scuffs, scratches, and gives the shoe traction. Some cobblers specialize in resoling Christian Louboutins. The lipstick red rubber sole matches perfectly, without taking away the shoes’ signature touch. This was the work of Progressive Shoe Repair in Beverly Hills, they did a fabulous job and were done the next day. These Prada pumps are my favorite shoes that I own. They are so comfortable, I can run in them. So naturally, wearing them pretty often, takes a toll. Resoling these pumps was an essential, but my next move is adding a rubber tip to the heel or added protection. When traveling, a shoe bag is essential for protecting your shoes, as well the clothes in your suitcase. Lingerie bags work just as well.
