Garden Party Necklace in Oct. Issue of Cosmo

This necklace is simply an amazing statement piece. Everyone I put it on falls in love with it instantly....even the ones that think "no's not for me!" It will dress up your basic t-shirt/tank with denim. A piece that will have you stopped by all other fashionistas because it's so easy to admire. Not to mention how it makes you feel.

BAD Lash Extension Vendors at the Long Beach Esthetician Show

I was so disappointed to see one of my vendors sell their products at the Long Beach Trade Show to people that are not even certified to use their product. People need to be educated in using their products. So many people just want their glue and they are the people that give Lash Extensions a bad name. This just proves to me that I chose the right lash extension company back in 2005 AND there's a reason why they are named the Global Leader in the industry!!! Xtreme Lashes is the best!!!

Looking for an Xtreme Lash Stylist near Ventura

I had Xtreme lashes put on during my 2 day class. I'd like to admit that after doing lash extensions for 3 years, I've never had them done on me. Now that I have them on, I'M ADDICTED. There isn't an Xtreme Lash Stylist near me - I have to drive an hour-ish to have them done. I need more - longer fuller lashes.

Fall '09 Jewelry Trends and Stella & Dot Style Tips - Part 1

MULTI-CHAIN NECKLACES in gleaming gold, brushed gold, chrome and silver with touches of gem stones.

What Stella & Dot has to offer:

  • Avery Chains and Pearls Necklace - looks great layered with the 30" silver chain and the New Crest Pendent. Add the Alana Embroidered Cuff in shades of black and gray with hand embroidered silk a tulle with Swarovsky stones. This collection will add chic rocker styling when paired with a T-shirt and vest along with your favorite jeans. For another option, try this combination with a long sleeve fitted T-shirt, a fitted pencil skirt and rock this look with some heels.
  • Adrienne Mixed chain necklace a GREAT PIECE and a MUST HAVE! It is such a versatile piece that can be worn in a variety of ways. IT can be worn around the neck and tied low, for another look wrapped it all the way around the neck and then tie it .Try looping the necklace almost in half, put it around your neck and then slide the tassels through the loop for a lariat look. This piece can be wrapped around the wrist several times then tied with the tassels hanging down for a fabulous bracelet. You can get so many looks from just one piece!
  • La Coco chain necklace in gold and silver - is my first S&D love. It's our most versatile piece can be worn as a necklace, bracelet and a brooch separately or combined for a more dramatic look. Wearing just the short necklace chain in gold layered with our SOFIA PEARL SINGLE STRAND NECKLACE is a simply stunning combination. Then try adding the Olivia mixed charms to the gold chain bracelet for just the right detail. There are also additional brooches that can be mixed and matched to change your look. An additional silk organza brooch in a rich pewter can be mixed with both gold and silver La Coco necklaces at $39 can change up your look. The Ivory Bloom enamel Brooch is a fabulous addition to the gold La Coco at $34.
These secrets have been shared by other Stella and Dot stylists and now it's time to share it with you. To view these fabulous pieces visit my

Stay tuned for more.

Today was a GREAT day! A day full of lashes and compliments on Stella & Dot. I brought a few Stella & Dot fall/winter look books to the skincare studio and clients are saying amazing things about the this season's line.

Kelly Necklace from Stella & Dot

Wore my kelly necklace, with my geometric bangle and my bloom ivory flower ring - soooo many compliments. I love it because you can dress it up with a nice dress or you can dress it down with jeans and a tank. I love it when style is easy!
