Everything You Need To Throw The Perfect Party

IMG_0614.jpg

Two Sundays ago, my closest friend and podcast co-host, Ali Levine had a co-ed baby shower at The Rockwell in Los Angeles. It was such a beautiful party and I can't wait for Baby J, as we are calling her right now. After the party, I was thinking about why it was so good and I realized it's because it had every element of a perfect party.  So whether you are throwing a baby shower or any kind of event, here is a checklist of all the inspo you need. 

Great Invitations

Screen-Shot-2018-02-26-at-7.54.19-PM-2.png

Start things right with the invite. I loved Ali's, which were designed by Paper and Poise. Even if you are sending electronically and not a paper invite, you need to make it pretty. Protip: If you can't use Paper and Poise, make your own with Canva.

Location Location Location

Location is everything. The Rockwell in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles was the perfect location because it's outdoors but also shaded over, so the temperature doesn't get too hot or cold. You also didn't feel claustrophobic. The party was also on its own floor and there was a sign that showed everyone where to go. They also had a parking lot in the back and a fairly good amount of street parking. If you live in a driving city, you need good parking or everyone will be annoyed with you even before the party begins.

A Pretty Cake

I heart cake so hard. Nothing could have been prettier than Ali's cake from Rockiies Cakes.  And yes, it was just as yummy as it looked. Also, there is no such thing as too much fondant. The cake pops from Peach Tree & Belle were also a nice touch. 

Beautiful Decor

Screen-Shot-2018-02-26-at-2.42.13-PM.png

Flowers always look beautiful and appropriate for any occasion. Ali's boxed roses from L'Amour Toujours were a dream. The box is such an interesting way to not only display the flowers but it makes transporting them so much easier. 

Swag

Dressing Like The Stars: SAG Awards 2018

26224351_151552808967657_3807688863833391104_n.jpg

Welcome to Dressing Like The Stars, my awards season series where I show you how to replicate the best celeb styles on the red carpet! 

Although the spirit of #Metoo and #TimesUp were prevalent throughout the 2018 SAG Awards, it wasn't necessarily reflected in the fashion. Black was big, but it wasn't the uniform. However, if there was an overall theme that described most of the looks from the red carpet, it would be accessibility. Although the stars still looked like stars, it doesn't mean that regular people can't also achieve these looks. Here are a few of my favorites from the evening as well as dresses (and jumpsuits) that you can rock no matter your size, style or budget.

Yara Shahidi in Ralph Lauren Collection

As a jumpsuit/romper enthusiast, obsessed doesn't even begin to cover how I feel about this outfit. While there isn't an exact dupe for this overlayed jumpsuit, I found a few similar looks. My fingers are crossed we see more outfits like this all season long.

Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen

Photo credit: Instagram

While everyone wants to be like Reese, you don’t need to be green with envy. From the color to the style, I hunted down several dresses that have the same vibe. Okay, I'll stop punning terribly now. 

Kate Hudson in Valentino

Photo credit: Instagram

To be honest, I'm entirely sure how I feel about this dress. I haven't made up my mind yet, but I really heart the heart print. It's also a nice compliment to the star print trend that's been really big this year. 

Millie Bobbie Brown in Calvin Klein

Photo credit: Instagram

Millie Bobbie Brown always stands out and this outfit was no exception. For the most part, I've never really been into sneakers, but I like the way she rocked her Converse with a formal dress. I think this is perhaps the most accessible look of the evening. I feel like sneakers with formal dresses are going to be everywhere for the next year and then we will be sick of it. But until we are, enjoy...

Diane Guerrero in Christian Siriano

26866705_1535984749842486_7195191993243271168_n.jpg

I feel like Diane Gurrero's two-piece look didn't get enough credit. She was absolutely stunning! To re-create this look yourself, just get one of the tulle skirts below from ASOS (they have lots more, by the way) and add a mock turtle. But you could also go badass ballerina and wear one with a t-shirt. To make the look even more casual, Millie Bobby Brown it with Converse sneakers. 

Amanda Salas

26224351_151552808967657_3807688863833391104_n.jpg

Styled by my girl, Ali Levine, Amanda Salas looked classic old-school Hollywood in a black off the shoulder dress by Faviana. Check out these affordable dress dupes, but don't tell Ali I jacked her idea, please.

Dressing Like The Stars: Emmy Awards 2017

m sull.jpg

The big winner this year at the 2017 Emmys was fashion. The red carpet was filled with so many beautiful dresses, you know that every stylist was not only on their A-Game, but their clients actually listened. Everyone was so fabulous that I'm not sure I even saw one thing that could have inspired any of the following thoughts—

What were there thinking?

Were they even thinking?

Do they have a brain?

WTF is wrong with this person?

Do they not own a mirror?

Someone call an ambulance!

Nope, it was a night for spectacular fashion, funny jokes and minimal regrets. Here are some of my favorite looks and a few suggestions on how to steal the best styles without getting arrested by the fashion police. (Too much?)

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman reserved her time on the red carpet in a gown from Calvin Klein By Appointment. Book your own style in either a satin and chiffon gown by After Six or this Morgan & Co lace and jersey dress. Both are from Nordstrom.

_100406241-2.jpg

Samantha Bee

Style made a b-line for Samantha Bee in a Rubin Singer gown. Go for green in a chic long sleeved cutout dress from Cavalli or a slightly more casual frock from Misguided.

Marisa Sullivan

Marisa Sullivan rocked the red carpet in a Mac Dugal dress styled by Ali Levine. While it's hard to find a dupe, this burgundy Alfred Sung Strapless High/Low Sateen Twill Gown puts a slightly more classic spin on her look, while the Fernanda dress by Amanda Uprichard captures the fun . 

_101399706-2.jpg

AMAN-WD795_V1.jpg

Millie Bobby Brown

Millie Bobby Brown's Calvin Klein By Appointment dress did pirouettes around everyone else on the red carpet. ASOS' Mini Tulle Dress is a different spin on the same idea. If you want to be a ballerina but maybe in sneakers or boots, this  J. Crew tulle skirt  is everything!

Amanda Salas

If I had to choose my favorite look of the night, it would be Amanda Salas' one-of-a-kind red lace sheath gown. Styled by Ali Levine, this also happens to be, in my opinion, one of the best looks she's ever styled. Aijek Millie's Lace Gown gets the look pretty close, while the Marie Lace Midi Dress is a little more appropriate for an extra sexy date night.

AIJR-WD38_V1.jpg

Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley looked almost unrecognizable, but in a good way (obvs) at the Emmys. Her green Ralph Lauren dress had jaws dropping. Create a similar look in a green velvet mermaid gown from Jovani or basically steal it in this Aidan by Aidan Mattox Velvet V-Neck Wrap Evening Gown.

Here are the show notes for the latest episode of Things We're Too Lazy To Blog About with guest Abby Stern. Listen on Listen on iTunesGoogle PlayStitcherAudioBoom, or stream/download.

Strap on your stilettos and grab your rosé because this episode is a party! We were so lucky to have Abby Stern, whose novel According To A Source, is on its way to classic beach read status. Abby reveals all about her book and the writing process. We also talk about Barefoot Blonde Hair (no relation to the cheap wine), Vegas, bad roommates, Temecula, hardware stores, the importance of not taking no for an answer, New Orleans, New York, Kiryas Joel, reverse happy hour, celeb(ish) crushes, Chateau Marmont, Nico Tortorella, meeting your heroes, the nightmare of dating in Los Angeles, proofreading problems, our moms, plural names, Heather Dubrow, Bethenny Frankel and so much more. 

Amanda would not STFU at the beginning of the episode. She feels like a jerk.
If you live in Vegas or Temecula, please don’t hate us. Also, if you are a hair extension person, please reach out. 

As the Countess would say, “Be cool, don't be all, like, uncool.” Buy Abby’s Book on Amazon. And totally judge this book by its beautiful cover.

Let’s cut to the chase. Listen on iTunesGoogle PlayStitcherAudioBoom, or stream/download below.

Live(ish) from Beautycon 2017. We came. We saw. We Contoured. If you missed the event, don’t worry because this is the next best thing.

We interviewed reps from a handful of amazing brands including Kopari, Morphe, Tammy Taylor Nails, Pinkie Swear, Carol’s Daughter, Kate Somerville, Jergens, NYX and Beauty Blender (finally, a definitive answer on how to use those spongy things!).

One week later, we discuss our reflections from the event and what we realized is the easiest way to learn the best tips and tricks from all of your favorite brands. This is probably our most informative episode yet.

And yes, we recorded all of this in the VIP Room. Who do you think we are?

Still Exhausted: Best Of Beautycon 2017 Part I

Beautycon 2017 was such an incredible event. I still can’t believe how much fun it was and how many new products and brands I discovered. In fact, it’s way too much to cover one post, so I’ve decided to do this as a three part series including a podcast, which will go live on August 21st.

So many different brands came out to the event. I was familiar with many of them and there were others that I had literally never heard of. (I don’t know EVERYTHING). I spoke with so many experts who shared their best tips and tricks with me. Here are some of my fav products from the event and insider info that I just can't keep to myself. But then again, do I ever keep anything to myself? 

Smashbox

I tried Smashbox’s Always On liquid lipstick in Shockaholic (I know, shut up). The color was so bold and really stayed on. It’s perfect for those nights when you are going to drink a lot and take selfies. You will be totally covered. No need to put down your cocktail to reapply.

Kate Somerville

I finally tried their Holy Grail product, ExfoliKate and it was exactly what I was missing in my skincare routine. As many of you know, I’m all about the retinol, but it’s made my skin peel like crazy. My face has needed some serious sloughing for weeks now. (Why do you think I haven’t posted that much on Instagram?)

ExfoliKate is a physical and chemical exfoliator in one. All you have to do is rub it in for 30 seconds and leave it on for two minutes. It’s way less of a commitment than a facial mask and actually works instantly. Seriously, I don’t want to say it’s magic but close enough. Also, I’m super sensitive and it wasn’t irritating at all.

I also tried UncompliKated Soft Focus Makeup Setting Spray SPF 50. We all know how important sunscreen is. Blah, blah, blah, etc. This is a dream multitasker because it sets your makeup and gives you sun protection. It also takes seconds to apply. You can use it and stop complaining about how sunscreen messes up your foundation because this spray actually enhances your face. 

Laneige

Laneige is a K-Beauty brand that is currently available from Sephora’s website and will be available at retail locations in the upcoming weeks. They are owned by fancy pants cosmetics company Amore Pacific. The brand has been around since 1994, which was way before K-Beauty was a thing, so you know it’s got to be good.

They gave me a sample of their Water Sleeping Mask, which I almost don’t want to use because the packaging is too pretty. Apparently, they also have a Lip Sleeping Mask and I’m kind of dying to try it. My. Lips. Are. So. Dry. Too many matte lipsticks.

Morphe

I first discovered this brand in Ali’s bathroom (not even a joke) and I am now obsessed. Morphe makes the most gorgeous eyeshadow palettes I’ve ever seen. They have multiple textures including shimmery and matte in one palette, which is not the norm for most palettes. The entire line is very affordable, but also lux, which we all know never happens.

Morphe gifted me an entire kit and I can’t wait to try everything. Trust me when I tell you to keep this brand on your radar and when they are everywhere like rompers at a BBQ, you can take credit for knowing about Morphe before it was a thing.

Carol’s Daughter

I was under the wrong impression about this brand. I thought their products were only for black skin and hair. BIG MISTAKE! As someone with painfully dry, curly hair, I regret not investigating Carol’s Daughter earlier.

At the event, I was able to try their Almond Cookie Shea Soufflé. It has the nicest creamy texture and smells like heaven. But I was hankering to try their hair products, so I actually went to the drugstore and picked up the Almond Milk Ultra Nourishing Hair Mask. It made my hair so soft and smelled amazing.

Usually, quality hair products don’t smell good. Why is that? Can someone please explain why the shampoo from the 99 Cents Store smells like Heaven and $99 shampoo smells like car exhaust combined with rotting fruit? But seriously, this hair mask smells like sugared almonds from a candy store. I really want to try the entire Carol’s Daughter line.

Croc

Not the shoes. Also, ew. Croc flat irons are awesome. They gifted me their Plug Iron, which has a detachable cord. I love the idea of a detachable cord because I can’t tell you how many times I’ve melted my hair tool cords. (My fault!) Although the Croc is small, it’s mighty and heats up to 410°. I used it at home and I actually prefer it to my larger flat iron. That being said, I really want to try their Infrared flat iron.

 

Stay tuned for the podcast and Part II next week!
