Each week I love to bring to you some of my favorite fashion finds and home decor ideas. I love to bounce my love for fashion off of Dr. Joy Jacobs, former Vogue editor turned shrink and also a personal friend of mine.  According to Jacobs, “spirituality is the new black.” I couldn’t agree with her more. I am at a point in my life where I am temporarily living in a home (still not sure how) that over looks the sea and I am level with the clouds. The experience has changed me profoundly. I have never felt so peaceful and in tune with my own spirituality living here that even my friend, the Fashion Shrink would be so proud. We are all accountable for what we put out there and the feisty New Yorker that I am has gone missing since I realized that “peace begins with me.”  It’s truly amazing feeling so relaxed while bringing a new life into this world.

Despite being in a good place, one thing that stands strong and will never change is my obsession with all the finer things in life, especially haute couture!  So here my friends I present to you some of the coolest dream boards featuring some of the trendiest looks as well as my favorite books this month!  Enjoy! And have a fabulous holiday weekend!

Martini Wonderland is an awesome tale about a local San Diego resident who took the “Holy Grail” of legal jobs,  as staff attorney for the creator of Grey Goose Vodka.  In his book he writes about his wild experience working for the man who created one of the hottest brands in the nation! Seth Schechter takes you on his wild journey in such a way that makes me think this could be Leonardo DiCaprio’s next role.

  1. The cool thing about spirituality being “the new black” is that it is timeless. Having a connection with source leads to greater abundance and joy in life. Choose love folks! The universe supports you.
