a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

My "sanity" day

Last Friday I had a great day! It was all girly and all to myself.  My boss gave our office tickets to go to a Mothers Day Luncheon at the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel.  It was a charity event with the guest "Mother" being Amy Brenneman (from NYPD Blue, Judging Amy, Private Practice).  The lunch was yummy  (esp. the dessert and coffee) and it was followed by a fun flirty fashion show.

 We got goody bags with makeup, a book, candies and a beanie baby - which Emerson loved

this salad was great - strawberries and goat cheese! Yes please! 

 Ice tea is always fancier in a wine glass and a wedge of orange - I am going to start doing this at home!

the fashion show was fun and light!

The material of my Trina Turk dress that I wore - I love the colors and pattern! Would be great for pillows

 Hard to see but this was a "Pretty Woman" look ( the polo show dress with hat?!)

I had two amazing celebrity sightings!!!! the best being RACHEL ZOE, her hubby and new baby!!!!

 and the other, equally as yummy, Simon Baker (aka the Mentalist) 

After the fashion show I stopped by my favorite coffee shop, Caffe Luxxe, in Brentwood and picked up a coffee and window shopped some amazing home stores!  Also stopped off at Mr.Hotpants office and gave him an afternoon coffee and a kiss!!! So nice to see his face in the middle of the day.

Cisco Home has amazing sustainable furniture!

Hillary Thomas', Chic Shop - so many one-of-a-kind baubles . . . . 

I think my mum had one exactly like this!  --- "Mum - where is it? I need it!!!!"

Love these wall sconces -  they would look great in a dining room

Next I stopped in to, Haven & Company!  I love this little store.  I bought my mum the most beautfil white ceramic ginger jar for Mothers day a few years ago from here!

 New Voluspa ceramic candles

 Cute crisp-cotton summer jammies!

 I loved these coral napkin rings!

Barclay Butera  home candles - they smell amazing and are huge!

 Seda France - candles - love the scents and the packaging!

I finished off my day with an impromptu pregnancy massage that was OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD good!!! It was perfect; I was able to fully relax and let all the to-do-lists in my head fade away AND my therapist was amazing. Thank you Bill!

Oh and then I had the ultimate pleasure of having my dad up for the weekend and indulging in our favorite . . . . Indian food!!! Vegetable korma, naan bread and samosas!!!
