The Girls of Napa!!!!!

We left our mark in Napa!!!!
So, my Angels and I recently took a much needed getaway to San Francisco and Napa!!! There were many highlights on the trip to be mentioned, but I will let the pictures speak for themselves. If you want some specifics on great places to see; check out my Angel/friend's post-Lovely, Little Napa. If you are looking for a romantic, relaxing, wine-filled getaway...Try Napa and make sure you check out Lauren at Brown Estate, Blake & Jerry at Ma(i)sonry, and the Spice King(can't remember his name, but so nice) at OxBow Market!!!!

Row, Row, Row, Your Bow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bing Bang
The Bow is back!!!! Bow details are popping up in just about every place, fashion wise, you can think of...I was working my way through my Real Simple November Edition (packed with lots of Holiday tips and tidbits) and there they were...Oh, how trends repeat themselves (see here). From dresses to skirts to shoes, a little bow can truly go a long way!!! I must admit that I did own a few bow hair clips back in the day, however as I said before, this is one trend I will not be revisiting! But, a little bow on my blouse or dress, may just do the trick! I'm in love with the looks found here and here ! And the bow necklace by Bing Bang, has to be my ultimate, fav! Don't you just love it????

You're A Shining Star!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How will you ring in the holiday's??? I will be Shining!!!! Sparkles, glitters, glow...make your mark in some dazzling sequin this holiday season!!!! Cusp is on top of this trend for sure! Packed with glowing looks from LaRok to Tibi to Tory Burch! Don't let your jewels be the only thing shining at the holiday functions; try on some sequined shorts by 6126 or a metallic pair(which I love) by Madison Marcus. Pair them with a super black opaque tight, a platform shoe or a flat and a muted top, like this one and you're set to shine!!!! Bring a little bling to your wardrobe and make your mark!!!! Whether its totally jazzed up or a subtle shine, whatever you do, make it Shine!!!!

Live Long and Shine Like The Star You Are!!!!!!!!!!!
