This Spring marks the 10-year anniversary since Jelly Belly discontinued one of my favorite-ever candies – a seasonal sour Easter Bunny. I’ve always been a candy-lover (especially sour). I thought I’d outgrow it in my 20’s, but it didn’t happen.

Eating In San Francisco with Baby

If you’ve been to San Francisco, you know it’s home to some of the best restaurants in the world. Feel free to name a few of your faves below. You’ve got your appetite, your wallet, your recommendation for the hot new place to try, but what if you have a baby with you? A baby spinach salad with goat cheese and some fancy vinaigrette? Yum. An actual baby by your side? Um, not so fun.

I LOVE San Francisco, but it’s not exactly a baby-friendly city, so here’s my guide to eating out in any city that should help you to avoid eye-rolls, enjoy your meal and not disturb other patrons. We’ve eaten in restaurants countless times with Wilhelmina in Switzerland, Dallas and San Francisco with a 90% success rate. There have been a couple absolute fails, but I have some tips to help new parents looking to sneak out for a quick date night or a romantic lunch with a drooling, giggling, plus one. Here’s 5 Tips from an afternoon lunch with my husband in my boring new mom uniform at one of my favorite restaurants in SOMA – Marlowe… [Read more…]

Ever feel like the best way to describe your week as feeling ‘completely frazzled?’ We were moving  out of our temporary apartment complex in Dallas last week that happened to be filled with SMU college coeds cruising in and out all day. Moving is soo not fun with an 8-month-old bouncing between cardboard boxes, so we decided to take a breakfast break. I ran to the car for Wilhelmina’s blanket, duckie toy, etc etc. With my arms full in a hoodie and yoga pants, I maneuvered through the underground parking lot with my sunglasses nearly sliding off my tired eyes. Suddenly, she appeared. [Read more…]

Sephora careers Sara in San Francisco 2

Have you ever thought of making a career change or found yourself quasi-mentoring a neice, nephew or younger sibling trying to decide on a college or career path? I just started a new Interview Series this year called Tru Stories about real people I’ve met throughout the years sharing beauty confessions, one-of-a-kind career advice, or valuable life secrets!

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average worker currently holds ten different jobs before age forty, and this number is projected to grow! Today I want you to introduce you to Sara Bachis. I met her nearly 5 years ago in SF and she was talking about how she wanted to get a job at Sephora headquarters. Fast forward a few months and not only did she actually land the job, she LOVES her career and has some amazing advice if you’re looking to get your foot in the door at a new company. Meet Sara… [Read more…]

DIY Glam Versace Amaretto Sours

‘I need like 5 hours alone tonight. Can you watch the baby?’ I asked my husband today. He has no clue what’s going on, but I am SO excited that I can watch the Academy Awards (live red carpet and all) for the first time in 3 years! Let’s just say Awards season was a snooze living in Switzerland unless I wanted to stay up until 4 am Swiss time and watch the excitement online.

Whether you’re having an Oscar party tonight or watching solo, I wanted to share my new favorite cocktail with a romantic twist. Last year was Martini Bianco on ice and this year is Amaretto Sours with Dissarono and pink Maraschino cherries! [Read more…]

Can You Buy Michael Kors & Burberry Handbags at Costco?

Does Costco sell Michael Kors purses

I love a bargain and the excitement of seeing my favorite brands during NYFW, but after I saw Blake Lively slammed by Page-6 for keeping her legs crossed as she sat in the front row of the Michael Kors fashion show in NY earlier this week, I couldn’t help but roll my eyes after an experience I had at Costco two days before. Let me explain.

During the 3 years I lived in Europe, I saw Michael Kors stores pop up everywhere on streets lined with luxury designers like Prada, Louis Vuitton & Jimmy Choo. I almost bought a Michael Kors mini-bag last Spring, until I saw the price tags at department stores in Zürich. I decided to hold off until I was back in the States where I constantly saw them at Macy’s on sale and TJ Maxx. [Read more…]
