Straw anyone?

When my friend Sami and I were heading out to the beach this morning, we realized that we collectively had enough straw accessories to source a small Summer boutique.

With love from Paraggi

Monday, June 28, 2010

Good morning! Just wanted to send you a quick hello. School's out for my most beloved creature/almost three-year-old, and thus, our summer journey of bite size proportion is underway. Our first stop this season is Paraggi to visit our very dear friends. We arrived yesterday afternoon, hit the beach right away, indulged in tons of focaccia, and stayed up really late (9:30p.m.) giggling. What love! Well my time's up, as the biggest little eyes have just opened and the brightest smile is beaming from across our room. Bite size kisses for everyone.

Eye Love You, Clarisonic Opal

If eyes are the windows to the soul then I want mine to look good, and fortunately, the new Clarisonic Opal can help me do just that. Using sonic infusion technology the Opal uses a special Anti–Aging (and Paraben-free) Sea Serum to provide a noticeable reduction of fine lines and wrinkles that lasts for hours and the results build over time.

The system combines a soft applicator tip, precision tuned sonic frequency and a gentle kneading motion to maximize the transfer of serum into the skin. "Think of it as a delivery system,"said Jen, the Seattle Clarisonic Rep. The gentle "eye massage" feels amazing first thing in the morning to brighten the eye area, and of course, feels refreshing after a long day's work as part of my evening skincare routine.

Benefits of the Opal (as reported in clinical studies) include:
  • An immediate reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Younger looking skin
  • Skin appears refreshed and energized
  • Skin appears brighter and healthier
  • Improved skin tone
  • Increased skin hydration
The Clarisonic Opal kit includes the Sonic Infuser, 2 Anti-aging Sea Serum dispenser caps, an extra applicator tip, a stylish charger that looks more like a mouse for a Mac computer than a charger for a beauty device, and for a limited time the kit also includes a zippered white travel bag.

Get the Clarisonic Opal in Seattle at Spa Scotta or visit Clarisonic online to check out the Opal and the rest of the Clarisonic line including their famous Clarisonic Classic skincare brush.

I knew it had to be something good when Tommy signaled me from across the street outside the John Varvatos men's Spring 2011 runway show. But I had no idea that it would be Frida Gustavsson good. Taking her picture was a lovely treat at the end of a long, cold and wet day.

Obama dan Mimpi Perdamaian di Afghanistan

KANTOR Berita British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) baru-baru ini memberitakan bahwa panglima militer tertinggi AS di Afghanistan, Jenderal Stanley McChrystal, dicopot dari jabatannya setelah mengecam pejabat senior pemerintah Presiden Obama.

Jenderal McChrystal digantikan oleh Jenderal David Petraeus, yang memimpin strategi penambahan pasukan di Irak.

Dalam profil yang dimuat di majalah Rolling Stone, Jenderal McChrystal dan stafnya melontarkan komentar yang merendahkan Obama dan sejumlah pejabat senior lain, termasuk Wakil Presiden Joe Biden.

Barack Obama sendiri mengatakan, strategi Amerika di Afghanistan akan tetap sama meskipun ia memutuskan untuk mengganti jenderal tertinggi yang memimpin perang di sana. Obama bersikeras adanya persatuan tujuan di Afghanistan. Ia yakin Jendral Petraeus memahami strategi Amerika di Afghanistan karena ia ikut membentuknya.

Sebelumnya, dalam kunjungan perdananya ke Afghanistan, Barack Obama menjelaskan keberadaan pasukan Amerika di negeri itu adalah untuk menciptakan perdamaian di negeri itu.

Saat berpidato di hadapan pasukan militer dan warga sipil di Pangkalan Udara Bagram, Kabul, Obama mengucapkan penghargaan dan rasa terima kasihnya kepada seluruh pasukan yang bertugas dan menegaskan mereka akan mencapai kemenangan di Afghanistan.

"Kalian di sini adalah untuk menjamin keselamatan dan keamanan Amerika," kata Obama.

Dalam kunjungan yang hanya beberapa jam itu, Obama sempat bertemu Presiden Hamid Karzai. Obama mengatakan, dia ingin melihat kemajuan dalam upaya Afghanistan mengatasi korupsi dan penyelundupan obat-obatan terlarang.

Sejalan dengan kebijakan Barack Obama, Perdana Menteri baru Australia, Julia Gillard, secara tegas mendukung aksi militer di Afghanistan. Sebelumnya, Australia telah mengirim 1.550 tentara di Afghanistan. Kebanyakan dari mereka melatih anggota baru Tentara Nasional Afghanistan.

Sementara, seperti yang di lansir Kantor Berita Voice of America (VoC), bulan Juni ini menjadi bulan yang paling banyak jatuh korban pasukan Amerika Serikat dan internasional di Afghanistan sejak konflik itu mulai.Sedikit 79 tentara telah tewas bulan ini.(*)

Nail Biters Unite!

It will come as a shock to no one that I was never the star pupil in my science class. In fact it wasn't until recently that I even remotely liked science. When I realized that good old science could help maximize a great manicure, I was instantly interested. "NOW we're talking!", I thought to myself. A great manicure that lasts for up to 14-days is like gold for me because as a mindless nail biter I always chip off the polish of what would otherwise be a fabulous set of nails way too soon. Needless to say I was instantly in love when I was introduced to Shellac UV3 Technology last night while attending the Clarisonic Blog Launch party at Spa Scotta.
It goes on like a polish, feels like a gel, maintains high shine and is UV cured so there's zero dry time. I didn't have to worry about reaching in my handbag to grab my keys or check my cell phone. Untimely smudges, be gone! Finally- a stylish way to grow out my seemingly short nails. And for all those eco-beauty fans out there, don't worry, Shellac is 3-free, no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP. Trust me, if you're due for a manicure you need to get "Shellacked!" I'm already addicted.....

Camouflage is the new black. O.k., maybe not the new black, but definitely a favorite among stylish men like Josh Peskowitz (above) and Nickelson Wooster (below). Mr. Peskowitz is the Style Editor at and Mr. Wooster is the Men's Fashion Director at Neiman Marcus. Mr. Wooster is wearing Michael Bastian. Black or camouflage, I'm a fan of both looks.

All you need

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

All you need is a few basic looks in your closet that you can dress up or down depending on the occasion. Milanese stylist Alessia Fagioli Galeone's look is exemplary of this fashion principle. Here she takes a favorite basic look of mine, the denim button down and olive trousers, and adapts the look based on the requirements of the day.

When I met her at the Albino Deuxiem show, she had just stepped in from the rain in a super -envious windbreaker and eye catching earrings. One, you might remember that I love to observe how the fashionable brave the rain- it's because their weather friendly approaches always bring a smile to my face and brighten my day. With that said, you can totally understand my appreciation for that windbreaker. And two, how ridiculously cool are those earrings?? They are by an emerging talent whose name I will provide really soon.

Later that day, when showers had calmed, I spotted her again in the same basic look but dressed up with this lovely sequins jacket, and which because of its embellishment, she accessorized with a more sober pair of earrings.

Thanks Alessia for showing us how a basic look can take you a long way.

Last week I have bought the YSL Arty ring which I had received in less than 24 hours!
The packaging was so adorable! But unfortunately the ring is just a little too small for my middle finger and too big for my ring finger :(
Also the color is just too pink for me.. So i decided to sell the ring!
I still think that the ring is amazing so maybe I'm going to buy a different color!
