Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This is an important month to promote awareness and support for women around the world – Its Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Most people have had their lives, or the lives of those around them, impacted by this disease, and the more you can promote awareness, the better.

In addition to making direct donations to the American Breast Cancer Foundation, you can also do a little fun shopping to show your support. Below are some of my favorite picks to make sure that your dollars are going to a great cause!

Living in San Francisco is all about embracing labels. When you reside in a city where it can go from pouring rain to sunshine in a few hours time and fog is a near-constant, you learn the value of carrying scarves and umbrellas on a daily basis.

Taking a great printed dress like this beauty from a sunny Summer day in the park to a fun Fall brunch is simply a matter of the perfect blazer.

This crisp cropped Mod Cloth blazer in the perfect shade of white was the obvious choice – It adds the perfect amount of polish without detracting from the eye-catching print.

Project Juice Cleanse

During the recent Juice And Spruce event with Lululemon and Project Juice, I was excited to hear all about nutrition and juicing from the founder of Project Juice.

I’m a long-time green juice fan and have loved Project Juice since they came to San Francisco – There are two locations walking distance from my office.

Project Juice Cleanse Green Juice Vegan Gluten-Free Paleo

Her passionate & enthusiastic words reignited my excitement so I decided to try another their one-day cleanse {You can read about my first foray into juice cleansing here.}

There are three levels and I chose the one with the least amount of sugar which included six juices ranging from basic greens to heavenly almond milk.

This Forever Young cleanse includes the following juices:

  • Dr. Green
  • EZ Green w/ Lemon & Ginger

London Fashion Week: CCUOCO

The door opened and a warm cloud smelling of hair spray wafted out. The high ceilinged back room of Freemasons Hall is roughly 15 degrees warmer than anywhere else in the building. Blow dryers, hair straighteners, curling irons – They’re all on high as models, make-up artists, hair stylists, and helpers bustle about backstage.

The elegant women lounging about the room have their hair slicked back into thick ridges at the crown. The expert make-up artists are crafting smokey, dramatic eyes that meld perfectly with the lush fabrics they wore. Textures and colors so eye-catching that you just wanted to reach out and touch them.

Down the crisp white Fashion Scout runway slinked some of London’s finest in belted metallic sheath dresses, scuba skater skirts, bold corsets, crop tops, two-toned pencil skirts, harnesses, and more from the CCUOCO Spring/Summer 2015 collection.

The finale look, worn by the collection’s face Kerstyn Inouye, featured a divine white leather maxi skirt, corseted halter, and dramatic headpiece from Spoiled Cherry.

The designer joined her muse for a second lap around the runway and when the two paused to snap a selfie at the end of the runway the crowd went WILD.
