Music: While everyone is making babies and getting rich off of working with Miguel, Mariah Carey surely wasn’t going to be the one left behind. I have always been a huge fan of Mariah and probably the only person who liked the movie Glitter. I was actually obsessed with her Glitter album. Don’t judge me. “Beautiful” is really sticking with me. The first time I heard it, I didn’t think it was Mariah Carey but my radio dashboard told me otherwise. Check it out.
For all my girly girls that are tomboys at heart pay attention to this one. I really do love to play dress up and feel feminine and sexy at times but most of the time, I am in sneakers and jeans. Check out these fun sneaks from my personal list on Lyst.com

Gatsby fans, fake social media fans, Leonardo fans, and your 12th grade English teacher are going to go nuts when ‘The Great Gatsby’ premieres in theaters May 10th. What is almost equally exciting? The soundtrack. I personally haven’t loved a movie soundtrack this much since Romeo + Juliet. Do movies even make soundtracks anymore? Forget it.
The anticipated flick features Leonardo DiCaprio, Carie Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire and has Jay-Z as the executive producer for the soundtrack. As if rapping, making babies, being a sports agent, and hanging with Justin wasn’t baller enough. The one song on the album that I am a tad bit weary of is “Back to Black” by Beyonce & Andre 3000. No one can do it like Amy Winehouse, and this version unfortunately doesn’t even come close.
Full Track List:
1. 100$ Bill – Jay-Z
2. Back To Black – Beyoncé x André 3000
3. Bang Bang – will.i.am
4. A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got) – Fergie + Q Tip + GoonRock
5. Young And Beautiful – Lana Del Rey
6. Love Is The Drug – Bryan Ferry with The Bryan Ferry Orchestra
7. Over The Love – Florence + The Machine
8. Where The Wind Blows – Coco O. of Quadron
9. Crazy in Love – Emeli Sandé and The Bryan Ferry Orchestra
10. Together – The xx
11. Hearts A Mess – Gotye
12. Love Is Blindness – Jack White
13. Into the Past – Nero
14. Kill and Run – Sia
Music: By the looks of it, ‘The Great Gatsby’ soundtrack is going to be a magnificent success. Artists like Beyonce, Lana Del Rey, Andre 3000 and Jay-Z himself have laid their magical talent on one of the most anticipated movie releases of the year. One of my dearest tracks has to be “Together” by English Indie band, The XX. Nothing too out of the ordinary for them but why fix somethin’ if it ain’t broken ey?
Fashion: The Glendale Galleria is getting a clear full body make over this year. Stores like American Eagle have moved out, new stores are moving in, the place is getting spiffy. Nordstrom will be relocating to The Americana in the fall of this year. Three stories of greatness is expected. The odd space which used to be occupied by Mervyn’s will be transformed into a beautiful Bloomingdales projected by the Glendale Galleria. The Grove is experiencing a mini face lift as well. A bigger Barney’s I heard. Caruso is just going to work isn’t he.
Beauty: Sachauan Oil Treatment is a new product I am using for my dull looking hair. It can be used as a styling boost or a leave-in conditioner. The price tag is tad hefty but a little goes a long way.
Lifestyle: Flywheel Spinning Studios has come to Los Angeles. Arch enemy of Soul Cycle has two new locations in West Hollywood and Larchmont Village. I have attended 2 classes already and can’t get enough. The music is vibin’, the place is spectacular, and the service is off the hook. For starters, Flywheel offers 1 complimentary class, shoes, water, and towels. It is a great 45 minute work out sure to get you sweating. Visit their website at www.flywheelsports.com
Music: Dj Drama- So Many Girls
Random: I can successfully cross of Synergy Organic & Raw drinks off my list. How do people drink this stuff?
Over the past couple weeks, I was lucky enough to style Yerevan Magazine’s fashion feature shoot featuring Los Angeles local designer Sarine Marie. Sarine Marie has been designing since she itty bitty and her line is a fresh take on sophisticated California living. Here are a few unedited pictures from the shoot.
Kitson has opened up a new outlet space at the Camarillo Outlets. If only it was 2008 again.
Beauty: I have done it. The world will have softer hands due to this amazing product from Archipelago Botanicals. I hate hand cream. I hate the way it makes my hands greasy and cannot stand smelling like flowers or chocolate for that matter. The “Soy Creme Milk No/3″ is probably the best hand creme I have used in my life. That is a bold statement readers. It truly keeps your hands moisturized through numerous hand washings and smells delightful. Find it at your local beauty supply store.
Lifestyle: Tomorrow I start my first Fly Wheel Spinning Class. I am not going to lie, I am nervous and excited at the same time. I used to spin for a good year straight but since have fallen off the bandwagon. Fly Wheel Sports is a new swanky spinning studio from New York setting its mark on West Coast Territory. Check them out here.
Music: Drake- Girls Like Beyonce
Random: I tried Coconut Water for the first time. Um, Bad idea. I want my $7.00 back.
Music: Oh Justin, I admire your comeback. Not so much your choice in women but you can’t be perfect. This song is a classic JT song in my opinion. It features Timberland, has a sexy beat, and an edgy Justin take. Nice change from the rest of the album.
Being the second designer collaborating with Kohl’s, Derek Lam has his eyes set on a different target market. His entire collection is inspired by Rio De Janeiro with bold colors, prints, and designs. While most designers usually mimic their higher price lines, Derek Lam took a different venture and his Kohl’s line is quite a departure. The pieces range from $36-$98 and are available online as well at Kohl’s. I think you even get a %25 discount. I really like the pink linen skirt, the black jumper, and the jungle printed dress.
When rompers first became trendy I was so skeptical of them. How would my butt look? Will I be channeling an overgrown baby? I wasn’t sure about it all. The trend luckily for me expanded into many different silhouettes which gave me a lot more options. Now, I love it all!

Music: The Weekend must be one of the coolest Canadians (other than Drake) making music right now. Oh, and how can I forget the lovely Celine Dion. She totally should have been mentioned first woof, shame on me. Born as Abel Tesfaye, he is of Ethiopian descent. Allow the raunchy lyrics to fool you this guy believe it or not is only 23 years old. He has collaborated with Drake and Wiz Khalifa and now Juicy J is in the mix. I am sure everyone is familiar with Juicy J from Three 6 Mafia. He needs no further introduction.
