marshalls_1_2

While traveling through Palm Springs last weekend I accepted the Marshalls blogger challenge to head to one of their stores (ironically there were 5 locations in the area) and surprise myself by trying something new. For some that could mean an accent pillow, a kitchen items to test out a new recipe, or a yoga matte to get back into shape. For me, I gave myself a style challenge to create a desert look inspired by the nature I was surrounded in for my trip to Joshua Tree for $100 or less! And let me tell you, I’m excited with the result! UGG sandals, a Cynthia Rowley top, plus a Max Jeans jacket and Jessica Simpson floral pants for under $100 total (the retail is well over $400!). I majorly scored!

furla store invite nycThis weekend, Saturday April 30th and Sunday May 1st, Furla is celebrating the launch of the My PlayFurla collection at their Flagship store at 645 5th Avenue in NYC. Details in the above invite. They have a mini-mani station for some custom nail art with any purchase and photobooth to document the fun. img_4697.jpg
I’ve been rocking Furla non-stop this month and at Coachella and am going through a Furla phase. Their bags are so fun and their recent collections are so off the charts! Can you handle the amazingness?

Everyone in the beauty world knows that the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is like the Holy Grail or rather ‘holy water’ of the skin care industry. It’s their bestseller and most awarded product and with good reason — it’s amazing!

With the growing trend of Asian beauty products, we’ve seen a lot of talk about essences and their growth in popularity, SK-II being a fan favorite and one of the first ever created — paving the way for the category. With the consistency of a toner and many benefits of a serum, essences are their own category of skin care.

SK-II-New-image-5

Focused around skin renewal, the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence contains over 90% Pitera, an ingredient developed over 30 years ago when a scientist noticed the hands of the workers at a Japanese sake brewery were looking youthful. Convinced the secret lay in the fermentation process, this sparked 5 years of research and a team of scientists that screened over 350 types of yeast to develop what we now know as Pitera. It’s a focal ingredient throughout the SK-II line with the essence featuring the highest concentration of it. Pitera promotes skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process and balances the skin’s moisture barrier for overall hydration and elasticity.

Thank you TracFone for sponsoring this post and for the difference you’re making.

A few weeks ago I shared my memorable afternoon at the Dress for Success empowerment luncheon celebrating the Success is Calling program created in partnership with TracFone. Check out the post or watch the video above to see the difference they are making!

The Success is Calling program is designed to help women with employment and achieving economic independence. In addition to the program, which teaches interview skills and job placement support, TracFone empowers women with a new smartphone and a year of service. That is an amazing gift and tool to help these women prepare to enter the workforce and conquer the phone interview.

Don’t underestimate the importance of a phone or the phone interview! According to a recent survey conducted by TracFone, an interview candidate’s phone etiquette is increasingly critical to advancement in the interview process:*

  • First Impressions Stick: 85% of hiring managers and working professionals say that first impressions made via phone interviews follow the applicant through the entire interview process.
  • Confidence Counts: 82% of hiring managers use phone interviews to gauge a candidate’s confidence in their professional capabilities.
  • Phone Skills Are Essential: 82% of hiring managers say phone skills are key to landing and maintaining a job.

As one of America’s leading no-contract cellphone service providers, TracFone has not only raised funds, donated phones and service, this year they are expanding the program by offering it to twice as many women across the country.

I have a big announcement, today we’ve added a new member to our family, Charlie King! He’s a 10 year old Pomeranian that was found in a kill shelter before being rescued by Animal Samaritans — who I like to call Charlie’s Angels. And yes, he already has a profile on Instagram @PopPomCharlie (you know I had to!).

charlie3charlie2
Instead of heading to LA in between both weekends of Coachella, James and I decided to stay in Palm Springs at The Westin Mission Hills to explore all of the amazing sites in the area before heading into weekend two of the music festival.  The Westin has a partnership with Animal Samaritans and had Charlie living in their lobby allowing guests to play with him and take him for walks. I walked him everyday.

It can be really hard for older dogs to get adopted and I just fell so in love with him so after some nudging, James agreed that we needed to give this little guy a home! The Westin is an incredible property, set on a golf course with multiple restaurants and pools on the property. Our favorite part was all of the activities they offered and the amount of animals on the property. Walking the grounds they have giant bunnies, tortoises, black and white swans, ducks, iguanas and a bee tour! They have a whole bee keeping program where they make the honey used on the property. And as some of you know bees are crucial to our survival and have been on the decline since 2006. On Sundays they even offer bee tours, which of course we had to do!

We owe a huge debt of gratitude for this property for all that they do with Animal Samaritans and for bringing Charlie into our lives!

neutrogena-tree-huggerHappy Earth Day! While we should appreciate and take care of our planet everyday I hope everyone takes a moment today to be outside or do an activity in nature to really appreciate what an incredible world we live in.

I’ve been doing just that this week. I had a 2 day break in between Coachella weekend 1 and weekend 2 and instead of hightailing it back to LA, I’m partnering with Neutrogena Naturals to explore all of the amazing wonders that Palm Springs has to offer and set off on an outdoor adventure.

neutrogena-naturals

Neutrogena is the #1 dermatologist recommended skincare brand and for anyone not familiar with Neutrogena Naturals collection, it includes the Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser, Purifying Pore Scrub, Purifying Cream Cleanser, Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, Muti-Vitamin Nourishing Moistuizer, Acne Cream Cleanser, Acne Spot Treatment, Muti-Vitamin Nourishing Night Cream, Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover, Acne Foaming Scrub.

The products embrace the brand’s rich heritage in dermatology and clinically proven results; combined with advanced technology to harness natural ingredients and bionutrients to offer efficacious products that are the perfect balance of science and nature. Packaged in recycled paper, they even power the brands website on a green server, the first of its kind to reduce their carbon footprint that is self-sustainable, sun-fueled and wind-powered – how cool is that?!? I wish all brands and sites would follow suit.

Neutrogena Naturals has also partnered with the Nature Conservancy on programming that will ensure clean water is available to those who need it, animals and people where sources of fresh water are vulnerable or contaminated. For Earth Day (and everyday) they want to know how you connect with nature so use the hashtag #LiveNature or you can upload your photos to their site HERE.

neutrogena-naturals-purifying-face-wash neutrogena-naturals-purifying-collection

For my Palm Springs #LiveNature adventure I packed my three essentials, the Purifying Facial Cleanser, Muti-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer and Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. I’m really into the cleanser, it’s so gentle and effortlessly washes away makeup and dirt without stripping or drying out my skin and leaves it so soft. They nailed the whole experience of washing your face, this cleanser feels amazing on! Everything is dry out in the desert, so I’ve been bathing in the Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer. It replenishes essential skin nutrients and is formulated with vitamins B, C, E and anti-oxidant omega bionutrients to provide continuous moisture and is clinically proven to boost skin’s defense against dullness and roughness. I’ve actually been using extra on my hands as well to moisturize and it smells so good.

neutrogena-face-wipes

Don’t even get me started on Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes – I’m currently residing in the desert and have been playing with animals. My intake of hay, fur, dust, sand, dirt has been at an all time high and I have makeup remover wipes with me at all time. Virtually every ounce of exposed skin to the elements from my feet (sandals are not my friend, so much sand!), hands to face have been constantly wiped down. Formulated with unique emollients to help dissolve oil and makeup and made from 97% naturally-derived cleansing ingredients without any harsh chemicals, sulfates or parabens I feel good about using them all over my face and body. They are also so refreshing behind my neck for some relief from the 100 degree weather.neutrogena-aerial-tram-palm-springs

The view from Mt. San Jacinto State Park

Palm Springs isn’t short on natural wonders. Living in the desert surrounded by mountains, with natural hot springs and Joshua Tree just an easy drive away I’ve never felt so connected to the Earth. Day one we took the Aerial tram up 8,516 feet to hike Mt. San Jacinto State Park and take in the views and sunset. We visited the Living Desert, which is committed to conservation through preservation of desert plants, animals, and desert ecosystems and played in their butterfly garden (which is not enclosed) and fed the goats. We then drove to Joshua Tree the next day to bask in it’s magic – it’s one of the most breathtaking sites. I’ll have a full guide to Palm Springs up soon for anyone planning a visit.

Happy Earth day everyone! And don’t forget to tag #LiveNature and @Neutrogena and tell us how you’re connecting with nature today.

people style watch lara eurdolian jessica simpson bathing suit shoot

I’m so excited that my bathing suit shoot (words I never thought I’d say!) for Style Watch magazine is finally out! Some of you saw the sneak peek I posted a few months ago and know I worked extra hard on getting bikini shoot ready. I’ve always been terribly self-conscious about my bust size. I’m a legit 34D/32DD which translates into an XL top if I’m lucky — and my rib cage is too small to cross over into the plus size arena unless the suit is a string tie in which case I have hope but the fit is usually still off. This bikini from Jessica Simpson fits all my requirements and gives me shape without making me look like I’m trying out for Playboy or worse, falling out of my suit. I think I can even pass for a “C” cup to the untrained eye.

I’ve been in my fair share of photoshoots but this one was a personal challenge since it’s a whole other ballgame when the clothes come off! Style Watch is one of my favorite magazines and this shoot helped me persevere with my fitness and health resolutions for the new year. I actually feel really grateful for the opportunity since it gave me the motivation I needed to take care of myself. It’s very easy when you’re constantly busy and people are asking favors from you non-stop to prioritize everyone but yourself. This forced me to put me first. Many have asked how I did it and the short answer (I’ll do a more involved post soon!) is I quit drinking for 2 months, started cycling at Cyc fitness 2-3 times a week, took HUM Cleanse to the Rescue 21 Day Cleanse supplements and started my day eating a banana (prior to this I could not get in the habit of eating breakfast).

The issue is now on stands through May 13th. Check me out on page 104!

coachella-ferris-wheel-2016

coachella-2016-lara-eurdolian-furl-perverse-sunglasses
Coachella weekend 1 is always the hot ticket. It’s when all the brands are out and the parties are off the hook. So much in fact that we only made it to the music festival for one day! We were prepared for this going in, so we also picked up weekend 2 passes to Coachella so we could make weekend 1 all about the parties and plan on spending this weekend glued to the music festival. While we didn’t make it everything (we tried! we gave it a pretty solid effort! Here’s the party round up:

NEON CARNIVAL

For the past three years, James and I have loved going to Neon Carnival, the late night ‘it’ party of weekend 1 and famed outdoor dance party created by Brent Bolthouse. Hosted at an airplane hangar, the space is one big dance floor surrounded by amusement park rides, games and more. Drawing guests like Leonardo DiCaprio, Rihanna, Jared Leto, Scott Eastwood, Nina Dobrev, Aaron Paul, Alexander Skarsgard, Joe Jonas and so many more we had a blast! Hosted by The Levi’s® Brand, RE/DONE and Tequila Don Julio we went crazy on the rides, ferris wheel, bumper cars… it was a blast! Quick video above for the ferris wheel experience.

Calvin Klein #MyCalvins Desert Warehouse Party

calvin-klein-coachella-party-#mycalvins#mycalvins-coachella-partyAlso holding down the late night party game was Calvin Klein who threw a legit warehouse rave filled with lights and DJs that knew how to pump the base and get the crowd moving. Outside the venue there was a magic marker wall where guests could fill out “I ______ in #mycalvins”. They were also serving In-N-Out Burger which was pretty genius.

POPSUGAR Sunset Kickoff + SHOPSTYLE CABANA CLUB

hannah-bronfman-popsugar-dj henri-bendel-canvas-bag-popsugar-coachellateva-dsw-popsugar-diy-station-coachellaPOPSUGAR hosted a sunset kickoff party, hosted by Emily Ratajkowski at the Avalon Hotel. Hannah Bronfman DJ’ed the party and DSW hooked up the shoes! Guests were gifted indigo rd or Teva sandals and hosted a DIY station to personalize the shoes while Henri Bendel provided the cutest gift bags. POPSUGAR + SHOPSTYLE sure know how to make a girl feel chic poolside.

Ben Sherman #RideWithBenSherman London Taxi

Ben-Sherman-london-taxi-#ridewithbenshermanben-sherman-coachella-london-cab
For the festival weekend Ben Sherman had a branded London Taxi driving festival goers around. James and I had a blast in the back of the cab, dressing up in our matching Ben Sherman hats and having our own personal dance party!

VESTAL VILLIAGE

Vestal-Villiage-camping vestal-villiage-poolside

Divided in two parts, Vestal Village is one part a glamping station where two of my blogger friends actually camped overlooking a serene lake and the other half is a raging pool party complete with music and venders selling everything from bathing suits to jewelry. The three day festival and camping grounds is a one stop party!

The Music Lounge #WHHSH Party

#whhsh-party-coachella las-vegas-#whhsh-party-coachella v-moda-headphones-#whhsh-party-coachellaWe had an absolute blast at the The Music Lounge, produced by BMF Media, for the the unveiling of #WHHSH Beer, an exclusive Las Vegas product. Guests enjoyed a highly curated Las Vegas experience coming to life in Palm Springs for one weekend only, featuring performances by G-Eazy and DNCE. Splat offered a hair coloring station — I was all about getting a spruce up and Batiste did a dry shampoo station braid bar. The hot award went to V-Moda for their total bombshell headphones and Related Garments for the cutest socks and undies combos I ever did see.

The dFm House

dfm-house

One party we always look forward to is The dFm house with the ONE Managment BBQ + pool party hosted by chefs Ari Taymor + Chris Kronner of KronnerBurger and The WEDIDIT + Niki Takesh pool party! Shuttled to a private location nestled in the mountains surrounding Palm Springs, we relaxed poolside, eating burgers and exploring the expansive and beautiful grounds.

The Retreat

glamsquad-elf-cosmetics-the-retreat-coachella salt-and-straw-ice-cream-the-retreat-coachella the-retreat-coachella-partycaudalie-the-retreat-coachellaThe Retreat is the most peaceful oasis where everything you could ever wish for comes alive in one location, it’s like rehab for the soul. Homemade ice cream by Salt & Straw, healthy catering and drinks for days (kombucha, Perrier, fresh juices and ones a bit stiffer). Then there’s the pampering which included a barbershop (where they actually offered hair cuts), braid bar by Glamsquad and makeovers by e.l.f. cosmetics. Facials and massages by Caudalie who gave Coachella goers a supercharged boost of hydration with their detoxifying + firming body treatments. I love everything Caudalie but if you haven’t tried their Grape Water and Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet, you’re missing out!

Amazon Style Code Live Soiree

amazon-style-code-coachella-partyAmazon & Suki Waterhouse hosted the Style Code Live Soiree at the Korakia Pensione. For any of you unaware, Style Code Live is Amazon’s new live stream fashion and beauty show hosted by Lyndsey Rodrigues, Rachel Smith and Frankie Grande. I need no excuse to drink Moet and hang out with the Style Code crew, they are my favorites! We even shot a little style segment for the show while poolside that you’ll hopefully be seeing soon!

Coming from the New York cold to the LA sun, I wanted one thing: a tan (okay, more than one thing), but with my SPF regimen, that’s not happening anytime soon. Truth be told the only way you’ll see this body with color is if it’s a spray tan or body bronzer. With Coachella, pools and the excessive amount of white clothing I brought I don’t have the energy for body bronzer or the patience with it sweating all over my clothes. The easy solution, Palm Beach Tan. They are my jam, and literally have locations everywhere but NYC (they are the largest indoor tanning company nationwide, and my go-to when I’m in LA!)! In literally 2 minutes they can customize my bronze to any level of golden with their state of the art machines and products. I mean how tan am I from these photos I took yesterday?

In celebration of being in reach of the beach, we’re partnering to giveaway tan packages and a $150 Nordstrom gift certificate to help with that summer outfit!nordstrom-giveaway-reef-sandals-kate-spade-orchard-bag

alice-+-olivia-grateful-dead-music-festival-collection-neiman-marcus

It was a star studded front row at the alice + olivia x Grateful Dead runway show on Wednesday night. Hosted in partnership with Neiman Marcus, at the Neuehouse Hollywood in LA it was so fun to be out for the event! We have great events in NYC, but LA — or rather Stacy Bendet knows how to throw a party. Her show is always a highlight for me during New York Fashion Week so it was so exciting attend her See-Now Buy-Now Runway show. Stacey Bendet has that rare ability to mix fantasy with fashion, where everything she creates is completely wearable (and drool worthy) and you want to live in the world — or rather scenes she creates.

Front row guests included Emily Ratajkowski, Kourtney Kardashian, Lindsey Vonn, Anna Paquin, Lydia Herst, Moby, Misha Barton and more, with music super duo Mia Moretti and Margot behind the DJ booth providing the music and violin combo as the models strutted down the runway.

coachella_style_2

I’m in a complete music festival state of mind. I’ve been zipping around LA this past week getting ready. and this is the first year that I feel like I’m doing it completely proper! I’ll be in Palm Springs for both weekends to really enjoy all of the fun parties without feeling like I’m missing most of Coachella. And then weekend 2, I’ll be all about the music festival (and in between the two weeks I’ll be touring the Palm Springs area and Joshua Tree. You should follow me all weekend on instagram/snapchat: @prettyconnected and on Saturday I’m so excited to be taking over Bloglovin’ snapchat!coachella_style_5

Of all the days I’m most looking forward to Saturday! If any of you will be there (if all goes to plan), here’s what to expect on Bloglovin’ snapchat: I’ll be hitting up Vestal Village in the morning, then heading to the #WHHSH party (where Splat is going to pimp out my hair) before being picked up by the Ben Sherman London cab — sounds amazing right?. After that theirs a a DFM House party and one for Basecamp and then I’m power napping in preparation of the most exciting late night party of Palm Springs, Neon Carnival!

 

coachella-beauty-must-haves-5As far as I’m concerned, the only person that can pack light and still look beyond on point everyday for Coachella, is Patricia Field. I could definitely take a cue from her organizational skills from our trip together last year. At least I’ve picked up a few tricks of my own when it comes to packing my makeup — I finally found the winning combination between LeSportsac travel pouches and this Caboodle traincase.

aveeno-face-products-review

Before I left for LA, I went to one of the most beautiful events for Aveeno. Hosted at the Lowline Lab in NYC, and walked out of the urban jungle and into the rainforest. The event highlighted three of their face collections, Ultra-Calming, Positively Radiant and their new range, Absolutely Ageless and they planned activities around the active ingredient in each.

aveeno-positively-radiant-collection-soy-candle

For the Positively Radiant collection we made soy candles – since the range harnesses the power for soy to help with dullness and discoloration. This has longtime been my favorite collection from Aveeno since brown spots and uneven texture are my primary skincare concern.

roc-skincare-review

What do you think? Does my neck look younger? My acupuncturist likes to point out, I have a long neck which incidentally has led James to think that’s my nickname — I’m now reduced to a character from The Land Before Time. While I choose to not be insecure about it, you better believe I’m all about protecting my neck. A long neck I can deal with, a saggy, unkept long neck on the other hand… I think I’ll pass.

Before I talk about RoC’s new Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30 here’s some intel you should all be aware of. For starters UV exposure is the fastest way to age so in addition to SPF on your face, please make sure it’s on your neck, chest, hands and anywhere else that’s exposed to sun. Next, your neck and chest are the most sensitive and susceptible parts of your body because the skin is thinner (more so then your face!). We have less fat underneath those areas so it can show your age faster. Case and point, wear SPF and extend your skincare regimen to your neck and chest. (Or pick a product like this one from RoC that is designed for them and has an SPF 30). roc-neck-cream-Lizzie-Fortunato-roc-necklace

Now I’m ready to talk about RoC’s new Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30 ($27.99) beginning with this lovely necklace I’m wearing designed by Lizzie Fortunato. This long neck deserves something pretty around it — as do all necks! So RoC partnered with Lizzie Fortunato to create a custom LF x RoC Onyx Collar. Gold-plated brass with onyx semi-precious stones it’s available for purchase HEREroc-x-Lizzie-Fortunato-necklace

Now, back to the cream, I’m going to confess that I only use it on my neck and check, mainly because I think those parts of our bodies have different needs then our faces. I have a whole face regimen I like to do depending on what my skin needs. I’m more into customizing my face products and layering the different benefits then using an all-in-one. That said, this cream is designed for all three and for all you guys and gals who don’t have patience for more then a few steps, this is a great alternative. Now when it comes to my face and neck I’m good with cleansing and then going straight to a moisturizer (with maybe an added essence or toner step in between).

The RoC’s new Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30 is clinically proven to visibly smooth fine lines on the chest and neck after 4 weeks of use. I’ve been using it for almost a month and love it. It absorbs beautifully and isn’t chalky or have any weird SPF after-effects that some products do. It’s hydrating and I’m so excited that has an SPF 30 in it! It’s formulated with HEXINOL Technology and Vitamin E to help treat the signs of aging in one step as well as restore elasticity and firmness. Your neck and chest are just as prone to changes in pigment, elasticity, wrinkles and texture as your face — maybe even more so — so I hope I’ve inspired you to take better care of it!

Sidebar:  I’m in love with my new perforated Keds! I’ve been on a bit of a Keds kick lately (see my post on how you can now customize and monogram them). There’s something about their girl power attitude — they were the first brand to design sneakers for woman!
