Welcome Home, Fiona!

After 2 1/2 months in Hong Kong, and occasionally mainland China, my sissy is finally home!  I’m sure she had a fabulous time, but overall her impression about China is not so good.  I wonder if she’ll ever go back.   I’m looking forward to hearing about it, even though we did video chat like every day.  She had so many amazing photo shoots, I am so proud of her!  Get it girrfrien!!! I, on the other hand, spent the summer refurbishing and redecorating her room because a) it needed it and b) it was fun!  It looks awesome and I hope she likes it because I didn’t send her any pics while she was there! haha

Be sure to follow her fashion blog, its a good one!!! http://fionapitt.blogspot.com/


“The Closer” Charity Event

On our way to Ojai Michael had to do a photography job for “The Closer.”  The stars were doing a Q&A charity event at the Television and Motion Picture Fund.  The cast toured the grounds and then told funny stories about their experiences on the show.  The whole cast was present which was pretty cool and they were super nice.  Michael took tons of photos, but here is one snapshot of the evening! Me, Kyra Sedgwick, and Robert Gossett.


Ojai Valley Inn and Spa

This weekend I went with my boyfriend’s family to Ojai Valley Inn and Spa.  The resort is gorgeous and Ojai has perfect weather and sprawling mountain views.  The atmosphere is so relaxing and all I wanted to do was lay by the pool all day!  Took lots of pictures so here are a few highlights!

White Converse Sneaks

Another fabulous sunny day in OC! Michael and I went to lunch at BJ’s on Main St. and it was quite lovely!  We had fun people watching and sitting on the patio.


Some New Things

Did a bit of shopping this week and here is what I got:

Victoria’s Secret Beach Sexy Self Tan. $12.00.  A friend recommended I get it because it is so awesome.  So I tried it, and I do like it.  I think I put too much on every time though because it starts to smell nasty like how self tanning lotion usually smells.  In the bottle, however, it does smell nice, like a crisp lemonade on the beach with a waft of coconut oil.  I would recommend it because it’s not a gradual tanner.  You can see the results right away which I like.  I mean c’mon I got stuff to do!  Only $12.00 and the bottle is beautiful!  It doesn’t look like it’s available online.  I got mine in the store.

Essie “Fiji” Nail Polish.  $8.00.  Michael and I are avid viewers of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” to almost an unhealthy degree.  So when I saw last season’s “Bachelor” “winner” Emily wearing this color, I had to get it.  This color is so pretty and I really like it.  I think it brings out my tan, but maybe it’s in my imagination.  😉

OH! P.S:  I never did an update on my CND pink shellack nails.  I would not get it again.  YES it does work.  The polish stayed gorgeously perfect on the tips of my nails the entire 2 weeks.  Not a single chip or scratch or dent.  However, around the bed of the nail was the disaster area: All the edges started pealing up and I could see a good bit of space where my nails grew so they just looked bad.  I started scratching off the polish and it was not a pretty sight let me tell you.  Plus, it is really thick gel so you can’t just paint over the growth area with new polish like I would usually do.  Don’t waste your $40.00.  I got sick of the color real fast and just wanted to acetone it off but I wanted to get my monies worth!  Just buy a bottle of your fav polish and paint away!














Forever 21 gold leaf necklaces. $5.80 and $4.80.  Since I just bought the new Michael Kors chronograph gold watch, I needed some cute gold jewelry to match.  I thought these would be some fun summery pieces to add to my outfits.  The leaves in the necklace on the left are so delicate they don’t look cheap and tarnished.  (yet).  :p

What are some late summer must have items on your list?
