Shoe-speak: A universal language among women

shoe speak

Shoe lovers everywhere know that “perfect” shoes say a lot about themselves — they’re the ones that best reflect the wearers’ personalities and relay a great story without words.


In “If Not 4 U and Some Shoes,” author Laurie Nenson tells the quirky story of Francie Lanoo, an aspiring fashion designer and footwear enthusiast who embarks on a quest to find her ideal pair of shoes.

Francie’s ongoing shoe hunt eventually morphs into something soul-searching and metaphoric, leading her to realize that by stepping out of her comfort zone, she opens herself up to a world of endless possibilities in life, love and fashion.



Jetsetter’s Must Have: Instant Energy Boost with The I.V. Doc

I recently relocated to Las Vegas and was so excited to check out this media meet and greet at the MGM Skyloft for the I.V. Doc.  What is The I.V. Doc? The premium on-call I.V. hydration therapies which provide recovery from hangover, flu, jet lag, fatigue and food poisoning!  Similar to a concierge doctor, the I.V. Doc comes to where you are, your home, hotel or resort!

The I.V. Doc has recently expanded to offer services in Las Vegas and I got to meet with the team. Las Vegas is now the I.V Doc’s fifth market having seen past popularity in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco since launching in 2014.

During the media preview of the service in Las Vegas at the Sky Lofts, I got the chance to sample the service. It was definitely much needed after our move from New York and full week of unpacking.  The I.V. was easy to put in and the B12 boost was amazing.

Dr. Adam Nadelson Founder and CEO of The I.V. Doc onsite to discuss the service and this new trend of mobile wellness. Using screened health care professionals, The I.V. Doc™ provides clients with a discrete luxury service of energizing, 30-minute I.V. hydration therapies in the comfort of their home, hotel, or private office. Treatments include Cleanse, Detox, Refresh and Revive, which allow clients to choose unique, individual vitamin combinations for specific health symptoms – not just hangovers.

The professional and registered nurses took great care in checking my blood pressure and asking relevant medical questions before administrating the I.V.  The entire procedure took less than 30 mins and really gave me a huge boost of energy.

“Most people across the globe see Vegas as a destination for a crazy weekend getaway but there is a huge group of individuals who work and live in this environment every day,” explains founder Dr. Adam Nadelson. “There is much more to this city than a bachelor party-induced hangover and we are pleased to be able to serve the community with a range of customized wellness treatments.”

Widely known in the medical field, the oral intake of fluids and vitamins has an absorption rate of 50%-60% at most, while I.V. hydration is 100% absorbed. I.V. hydration offers the fastest way to replenish needed fluids and electrolytes. The therapies proven in hospital emergency rooms are now made more easily accessible by The I.V. Doc™, by fully accredited, licensed and experienced physicians and medical professionals – and at a lower cost!

Scheduling is easy via phone or online, where clients can select from an assortment of hydration services. The I.V. Doc™ will also offer a selection of supplemental vitamins (available to order after the selected I.V. hydration treatment,) as well as Super Vitamin B Complex shots for quick, natural energy.

Next time you need a boost, be sure to follow and request The I.V. Doc.


Brow Trends 2016 with IT Cosmetics

Every make up artist will tell you the same thing about the importance of brows. They frame your face and can drastically change your look! 2015 was surely the year of the #browsonfleek movement but what’s in store for 2016?


IT Cosmetics now offers a super skinny brow pencil that is affordable and comes in various shades. It is packed with beneficial ingredients to help you foster healthy brows while creating a fill look.


This is the best dupe you will find for the overpriced Anastasia Beverly Hills equivalent. PLUS the IT Cosmetics one comes in a pretty gift set for the holidays!

I can tell you that I definitely did NOT wake up like this :) with the IT Cosmetics brow pencil's help, I pulled it together.

H&M Newest Collaboration Frenzy

I know I am not the only one on the West Coast that set their alarms for 5am to logon to H&M for the newest Balmain collection!  Like many others, the site crashed was disappointing and now I will be driving to the nearest location to see what scraps I am left with.

IMG_5340669046797H&M has been so successful with their many collaborations like Jimmy Choo, Lanvin and Alexander Wang.  I personally got an amazing score of a bracelet from the Jimmy Choo collab and it is still one of my very favorite pieces. It is really nice to get a piece of Vogue in your closet for H&M prices right?

A lot of people are betting on who the next one will be in this article and I am hoping it will be Marc Jacobs!  I love their pop culture colors, NYC look and cool, wearable designs. But it might be a stretch since Marc by Marc Jacobs is already kind of like H&M pricing anyway.   This is a really great way to bring the high brow fashion brands into the masses so we can all enjoy fashion for fashion sake.

After seeing the preview on, I am obsessed!!

So off I go to Caesar’s Forum! I have my eye on this dress. Wish me luck.
