Birchbox All-Stars

Birchbox All-Stars! My top 10 favorite new products thanks to #Birchbox: #bbloggers #fbloggers #lbloggers #beauty

Birchbox All-Stars Final

I’ve reviewed over 70 beauty and lifestyle products since joining the Birchbox family just over a year ago. Aside from the alluring monthly surprise to myself – I really have discovered and incorporated many new finds into my routine because of Birchbox’s rather genius, yet simple idea: sending high-quality samples, from high-profile brands to experiment with before taking your next big beauty…

Where Bookworms Go To Party

Where Bookworms Go To Party #bookfestival #idesia #USC #books


What: The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

Where: University of Southern California

While it seems nearly everyone left the city over the weekend and migrated to the scorching Indio desert for the annual Coachella music festival, I stayed in town and partied at the other one…the festival where bookworms go. Yes, I’m a total nerd (and proud of it).


The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books is…

Happy Friday! This week’s Highlights #100happydays #farmersmarket


{ #1 - Day 13: Farmers’ market happy.}

One of the things that I love about this time of year, is how much I look forward to being outdoors. One of my favorite ways to spend a weekend afternoon is a walk along the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica (frozen yogurt in hand, of course) while window shopping, people watching, and gazing at the ocean in the distance.

And when I can muster up the…

What I’m Lovin’ Right Now

Here’s What I’m Lovin’ Right Now #Spring #Fashion #Food #lbloggers, #fbloggers

It’s 87 degrees outside as I write this. My home air-conditioning unit has gotten light usage as of late. The birds are chirping in full effect, leaving “bodily surprises” all over my car once again (boy, do I miss parking in a garage!). And trips to Yogurtland are happening with more regularity. On more than one occasion, I’ve stepped outside, greeted by our trademark LA sunshine and smiled to…

{Day 8: The sun, the clouds, blue skies, and fresh clean air after an unexpected overnight rainfall.}

I can’t believe I’m already penning another Highlights post – this week flew by! And what a week it was. Knock on wood, things are going well in life. I can’t complain (well, I can always find something to complain about – ha!).

I think what has been a fun addition to life lately, is partaking…

Birchbox Review | March

My March #Birchbox review is up and I’m not too happy. I’m not affiliated with any of these brands, so let’s just say you’ll get the truth. #beauty #make-up #review


Heads up, we’re heading into slightly darker territory today on All That Glitters. My Birchbox review for March won’t be so positive. In fact, I can describe it in three words: pretty darn disappointing. I think this is one of the worst Birchboxes I’ve ever gotten. While there are products that rate well individually (and really only 2), the fact that I’m seeing near duplicate samples month…

The End

Originally posted on All That Glitters:

Today will be my final All That Glittersblog entry. I find that I’m just not passionate about writing anymore and feel my talents could be best used elsewhere. As they say, all good things must come to an end and I’m ready to move on to the next creative chapter in my life. It’s been a blast opening up and sharing my life and love of Los Angeles with you.…

{Screenshot from my phone of when I hit my Twitter milestone.}

I started blogging August 1st, 2012 and it’s been quite a journey. I won’t go into much detail today about what I’ve learned thus far, that’s a post for another day, but I do want to talk about milestones. Suffice to say that for reasons mentioned here, I spent the bulk of my start doubting myself – a really nasty side effect when…
