A good relationship requires effort, patience and loving care and this hair of mine and I are constantly improving ours. I love to change up my look with curly and straight hair (you never know what style I’m going to be rockin from my Instagram feed), however, I’ve been experimenting with different styles and products using my curly texture.
I’m always looking for versatility in the items I wear and that’s what I found in this cargo jacket. When I lived in San Francisco, it seemed as though every girl had one and when I caved and bought one for myself, I had a “now, I get it” moment.
Yesterday I styled a Good Day Sacramento segment for Macy’s in honor of the Go Red Movement, with each model being affected by heart disease in some way. Tomorrow is National Wear Red Day, and I’m doing my part in this LRD: little red dress.
I’ve been blessed with really good genes, but even those with good genes need to do a little bit of maintenance, especially during the winter months. That’s where my esthetician Melissa comes in. She’s the face behind Ritual Skin here in Sacramento and she’s been doing my facials since summer when she opened up her space. Because we’re all trying to preserve the sexy, I asked her what her top five tips for winter skin care were to share with all of you.
One day I was perusing the sale racks at Macy’s (one of my secret spots for savings – no secret now!), and all of a sudden I gasped. A little leopard dress was sprawled across the ground and it was my size, and only $20. TLG to the rescue!
When I was invited by the Downtown Sacramento Partnership and the Delta King to do a tasting of the Pilothouse Restaurant’s Dine Downtown menu, I couldn’t refuse. Last year, I had a chance to go to the Pilothouse with a couple of friends and I was blown away by the quality and creativity of the menu. This year, I was blown away again!
Testing, testing – is this thing on? Hey y’all!
Yes, I am still here, alive and well.
I was taking a “holiday hiatus” if you will, focused on spending time with loved ones and doing lots of self care. Despite a couple of detours, 2014 was a good year for me, and an even better one for The Lipstick Giraffe. As I put this post together, I couldn’t believe all that I accomplished, all while working full time and doing my best to be a good daughter and friend. But I did it! Here are some highlights of my 2014 as The Lipstick Giraffe:
I had the pleasure of doing a fashion segment on Good Day Sacramento this morning with the lovely Courtney Dempsey. The theme: From Office to Party – Holiday Edition. Courtney is a fashionista in her own right, so I was thrilled at the chance of collaborating this holiday season.
Brr! It’s cold out here. In comes the sweater coat to the rescue.
