Throwback to working with the legendary Stella McCartney in Berlin!
Most people think of Winter fashion being all about the thick coats, tights, gloves and scarves. But for people who live in places like LA and Miami, Winter isn’t really freezing enough to wear so many layers. So I’ve hand-picked a few of my favorite beauty, fashion and jewelry brands to try out during this sunny holiday season for those who can’t enjoy the snow and below-freezing temps!
LA is a buzzing, bustling metropolis, and sometimes, you just need to get away. In search of fresh air and tranquility, I checked into Santa Monica’s beautiful beachside hotel, Casa Del Mar, last weekend.

Staff are super friendly here – the vibe is mellow – but the hotel still carries a very five-star air to it, and security is tight against non-guests wandering in from the beach. Speaking of which, surf lessons and paddle-boarding lessons are offered right outside, and I’d highly recommend both (just make sure you wear a full-length wetsuit, the Pacific is somewhat freezing all year round).
