Napa Valley Wine Tasting Event

In a shout out to all the L.A. natives, the Napa Valley E-Auction Launch event took place at the Sofitel Hotel yesterday afternoon, just steps from the most well-known zip code in the world: Beverly Hills 90210. One’s first impression when arriving at the hotel is of the wonderful rustic ambiance, lots of elegant mirrors spaced throughout and beautifully placed flowers bringing out the simplicity of a fast-paced city like Los Angeles. The Sofitel Hotel’s Estérel Garden has the perfect setting for an afternoon brunch, bridal shower or a wedding reception.

Chokers by Myra

Good Evening Beauties, Summer is around the corner, so that means cute accessories! I partnered up with Myra Castillo, a self-taught makeup artist, to help showcase her lovely work of art with the world. Now, who’s has gone to their favorite store and found the perfect choker, but it was WAY too expensive? I know I have, so when Myra told me she was creating unique/handmade chokers I was super excited. They are affordable and a lot cuter than the ones I’ve seen. She has always been very crafty, so I knew her chokers would be stylish! There is only one of each, but she can certainly make more if requested. If you are interested in purchasing any of the items above, please contact me or visit her Instagram page @myrapinkshairandmakeup for more information. Meet the Creator Behind the Chokers! Hurry, these babies won’t last too long. -Dawn
