My friend Emily turned me onto Warby Parker, the makers of affordable and super stylish eyewear and sunglasses. Since I don’t personally wear glasses (but may, ahem, own 20+ pairs of sunnies) of course I’m drawn more to these babies. But, it’s worth having a look at the entire new collection — 8 optical frames and 14 sunglasses with awesome names — which is inspired by the Coney Island boardwalk and summer fun. Plus, for every pair sold, a pair is given to someone in need.
Side note: Their frames would make a great Father’s Day gift as well (think Don Draper on vacation in Hawaii).
Since we are moving during Mother’s Day weekend, I am celebrating with my Mom early and taking her to see Kathy Griffin at the Dolby Theatre (where the Oscars are held). Here are some great gift ideas for all kinds of mamas.

A little fact about me: I never wear a watch. Even before iPhones became the new timepiece, I just never liked the way they felt or knocked against my desk while typing. The few times I do wear one in a year it’s always my Nixon Kensington watch, but seeing the new hues in the Kate Spade watch collection makes me think I need to get with the times (pun intended.)
One time I was crossing the street somewhere in Midtown Manhattan and this guy stopped me in the crosswalk to ask me the time. I apologetically explained that I didn’t wear a watch and he said, “Nah girl. The time to talk!” The pickup line make me laugh, especially since we were crossing a busy street.
This week flew by like no other. Last night I co-taught a Digital Marketing Workshop with my pal Margaret and today I’m going with my god son, his sister and mama to see the Space Shuttle at the California Science Center.
Our little desert trip got me thinking about stylish cover ups for spring and summer. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Easter!

Nothing says spring like a striped colorful wedge. The new Marseille Picnic Collection from Marais USA is French girl perfection — all under $175. Also, their gladiator sandals, espadrille wedges and velvet weave sandals are le bomb.
I just ordered myself a set of these SoLA pencils, which would make cute party favors or welcome gifts for LA visitors. Sisters of Los Angeles now has an entire New York product range as well.
I’ve learned a lot of things from my parents over the years. One of my favorite lessons is the value of a good eye mask. Whether you’re traveling or simply trying to sleep past 7am on the weekends, a small piece of fabric (preferably silk) can help you snooze like a pro by blocking out light.
