Cole Haan; Angel On My Shoulder

Well what a heartwarming experience and personal story I would like to share with you. These are my Cole Haan Sunglasses. I had the same pair when I traveled to Massachusetts when my mother died. I often kept my former pair in my mother’s car and I had forgotten them in her car when I left for Los Angeles. When I returned a week later, I made a written note, not to forget them.

Once I got back to Los Angeles, I had lost them. I don’t know where they are still to this day. Deep down inside I wanted to same ones because my mother loved them on me. However, these are a bit of a hefty price tag at regular price. They retail for around $80 dollars.

I asked my Husband to take me to T.J. Maxx to see if I could find a pair of new ones. Low and behold, I met a woman who reminded me of my mother. She was also sick like my mother. I then went to find my hubby in the Home section and I was balling. He comforted me and I told him I saw my mother in spirit form. I then went back to the Accessories area, and there the woman appeared again and so did the glasses. I just was crying and having anxiety. Needless to say, I grabbed the last pair of these, in which my Husband bought me.

Everytime I put these glasses on I feel as if, there is an angel peaking right into my eyes; right into my soul. She knew that I’ve been wearing the Cole Haan brand since 2008, so I feel as though she hand picked these especially for me.

Im still waiting for my angel to find my other pair.

Erin Condren Life Planner

Good Morning, hope everyone is having a great start to your day! I’m in bed today, due to a sore throat (all of the singing) and relaxing just a bit. With that being said, I wanted to share with you my organizational tips for staying uniformly organized.

Back in 1999, two years out of College, I got my first Corporate job in Boston. They supplied us with Franklin Covey planners and it was so helpful. I have always been a planner gal, starting my High School days with them. Fast forward to 2015, Erin has included visual color images, calendar space that systematizes blocks for morning, noon and night. This is one of the very many reasons I decided to invest in this planner. I need blocking for the 3 parts of everyday.

Because this planner was expensive, I decided to customize it with my own pictures from our beautiful wedding day, with the people that I love the most; my family!

Please watch the video below for a more detailed overview. Ha, in the video I said my parents got married in 1967, but it was 1964! I know that their laughing from Heaven:)

Thanks for watching!

 

Special Olympics Celebrity Basketball Game Red Carpet Performance

Yesterday, Our Love IS Foundation was one of the Sponsors for The Special Olympics Celebrity Basketball Game Los Angeles 2015. It was the first of many fundraisers to help send an athlete to these Olympics!

I performed my song Phoenix Rising Up at the Celebrity Basketball Game which brought Celebrities, DJ’s, and so much more out to the game. From the Wayans Family, So You Think You Can Dance Finalists, Power Rangers and a host of Actors, it was a fun filled afternoon.

I wore top to bottom H&M. I wanted to wear bright colors, since it was an afternoon Red Carpet and originally the carpet was supposed to be set up outside. But pouring rain prevented that from happening and we got a phone call before we arrived about everything being held inside. Nonetheless, I loved this sleek look, in which I paired with Pink Pepper glittered, open toe sling backs. I got so many compliments on my pink glitter earrings and it took about 12 pairs to finally settle on these. And my husband liked these the best, so these won!!

My makeup palette consisted of cool undertones, with hints of pink & peach! Erica, my incredible friend and makeup artist created a look for me based off of MAC Cosmetics In Anticipation Pro Longwear Lipliner. Again, since this was a daytime look I wanted to keep this look fairly natural, with a pop of color on the cheeks. Most of the products are from 100 Percent Pure and a few from Alima Pure and Physicians Formula. Very natural, very clean.

I really went out of my comfort zone with this outfit, wearing white and a bright washed denim. It’s such a departure, so hope you like it!

##ootd Outfit of The Day; Community Meeting Edition

Creating what to wear for Community Meetings allows me to explore my fashion esthetic, which I love. But for this meeting, it was incredibly hot in Los Angeles and didn’t know if these gray tights by George Brand from Walmart, would be too hot. I chose a tussled gray over black for this very reason. I wanted to wear a scarf as well, just in case it was cold inside. This one is by Betsey Johnson.

I paired these tights with this very fashion forward Chevron patterned dress from Espresso, which I got for a budget friendly $12.99 at Ross! Capped this off with black wedge booties from Cathy Jean, which were $90 regular price. I got them on sale for $34.

Once we went inside for the meeting, I realized this was the perfect outfit for the day!

Enjoy!
