Eat, Drink & Be Classy: Vanderpump Housewares

Life isn’t all diamonds and Rosé… but it should be. At least, that’s how Lisa Vanderpump and I feel. Lisa’s resume isn’t limited to restauranteur and RHOBH unprecedented-slap recipient; she’s also a lovely interior decorator, as demonstrated by SUR, Pump and Villa Blanca.

I have a major girl-crush on Lisa, so when I found out she had a housewares line, I got giddier than Giggy in a new pair of bedazzled suspenders.

Lisa Vanderpump Housewares Review Bristol CandleI fell in love with the entire line, but a few distinct pieces really bewitched me: the Bristol candles (pictured right), with hammered aluminum, really had an elegant look.

I also really adored the Anastasia Tray (pictured below), which adds the perfect touch of bling to any setting: Continue reading “Eat, Drink & Be Classy: Vanderpump Housewares” »

Sassy Dove is on Vine!

I know the rest of the free world is already filled with Vine users, but up until recently I wasn’t one of them. Now I’m a bit of an addict… But it took some force to get me there.

Wanna hear some of the best news so far in 2015? I am, as of this very moment, enjoying my first actual Spring Break in a very, very long time.

Of course, I’ve matured beyond the Cancun days of my youth (although let’s be real, on my budget it was Crystal Beach on the Bolivar Peninsula south of Houston). Continue reading “Gimme That Hair: Styling The Perfectly (un)Done Beach Wave” »

#OOTD: On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink. #GoCommando

If you watched the Oscars and saw any of the afterparty fashion, you noticed a trend. Our gals were, uh, naked. And good for them, because they can pull it off better than I can – but the cutout sheer panels that took over the red carpet left little to the imagination and zero room for undies. And that’s an even scarier thought for many of us than showing our bodies.

Still, I’ve experimented with a little commando-ness here lately (mostly for utility purposes – underwear is not optimal post-spray tan), and it’s very freeing. I wondered: could I take this idea to a real outfit? Like one you wear outside, at night?

Oh yes I could. On Wednesdays, we wear pink. Continue reading “#OOTD: On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink. #GoCommando” »

Fur-Cuffed Creme Gloves From Moon Cats

Luna Diana Artemis from Sailor Moon say qu
If you’re like me, when you read the title of the post you thought, “WHOA. Are you seriously exploiting those poor endangered cats on the moon for their fur? Cailin, how could you?”

Luna, Diana and Artemis want you to quit exploiting mooncats for their fur! (And people probably harvest those little crescent things on their heads too. Also NOT cool.)

Simmer down there, doves – Moon Cats is a fashion accessories brand, and the fur is faux, tee why vee em. I would never wear real fur and Luna is my homekitten. Continue reading “Fur-Cuffed Creme Gloves From Moon Cats” »
