This & That

Yesterday I spent 4 hours in a salon chair (and no, not getting a weave, that’s next month) for cut and color.  When I walked in to my colorist, she was like, “what happened?” Exactly. Nothing like your hairdresser referring to you as “zipper head” because your roots are that dark, but I have to say, I feel like a new woman.  Something about highlights makes me feel refreshed, like I can take on the world (but I’m doing it in slow motion, tossing my head this way and that, kinda like I’m in Charlie’s Angels or a tampon commercial).

Here’s what’s cool this week (or what I think is cool):

Can’t wait to see “Blue Jasmine,” the latest from Woody Allen.  C’mon.  Cate Blanchett in designer clothes falling apart in San Francisco? What could be better?

Nadri’s thin crystal bangle from Nordstrom ($65).  They’re thin, beautiful and look great stacked.

Wilderness Firepan from TyeWorks on Etsy ($175).  A perfect Father’s Day gift and can be used for grilling or for an impromptu bonfire on the beach (and you don’t need tools to assemble it).

Love the black and white stripes of this outdoor chair from Terrain ($228).  Would look great with the green backdrop of an outdoor space.

I love how New York socialite Olivia Palermo always looks perfectly polished and put together.

The honeysuckle soap from Barr-Co. ($8) smells like you’ve been to a tropical island paradise.

Dig the jute glitter bag ($98) from Jayson Home.  You’ll be feeling very French when toting this to the Farmer’s market.

Always worth checking out SF interior designer Grant K. Gibson’s Instagram and cool blog.  Would love him to remake my house!

This photo of Anna Wintour is great.  The camera angle, the detail on the jacket. The stance.  The hair.  It says so much.

Can’t beat the price ($36) on this mint sun bloom necklace from Bauble Bar.

I think “make your own” prints from Artifact Uprising are soo cool ($21.99).   They come in packs of 25 and you can have iPhone photos printed.  Great to use for notecards.

With “The Bling Ring” opening this weekend, writer Amy Ephron talks about the reality of raising kids in L.A.

Fun to serve cocktails in mason jars for your next soiree.

Straw still doesn’t have full motion of his neck (poor dude) but brought Master P to his first baseball game today.  Beyonce, Bodie and I are hanging out and enjoying the sunshine and cleaning the house (well, one of us is cleaning).  

Enjoy your day! C
