Destination Pretty: The Ranch at Live Oak Fitness Camp

Ranch Malibu Photo 4

I have read about The Ranch at Live Oak for a few years. It’s a hard core, kick your butt, and sweat so hard fitness regime you go to bed thinking you are Rocky or what the hell did I get myself into. Of course after going to Rancho La Puerta a few years ago [...]

Destination Pretty: Carneros Inn and Spa – Napa Valley, California

Carneros Inn

I have Napa on the brain and weighing heavily on my mind. I recently had lunch with my friend Marty and she reinforced that we need to visit soon. I was watching the Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten) cook for her beloved Jeffrey in Napa Valley and San Francisco I got a little jealous. That needs [...]

Destination Pretty: Stephanie Johnson Travel Essentials

Stephanie Johnson Mini Pouches

I remember when travel was easy. Security was a breeze to pass through, you didn’t have to put your liquids in Ziploc bags, and the majority of people didn’t dress as if they just rolled out of bed. Times have changed. Travel today is hard, even I will admit that. But, there are ways to [...]

Destination Pretty: I’m Leading My First Beauty Tour of Paris

Arc de Triomphe

Partner Spotlight: London Beauty Finds

London Beauty Fidns

Are you watching the Olympics as much as I am? I spend any extra time watching them. It’s very motivating to see dedication and hard work at it’s best. But, it’s not why London is on my mind. It’s on my mind because I am going there in November. I know what you are thinking. [...]

Destination Pretty: Claire Vivier Weekender

Clare Vivier Weekender

I haven’t met a weekender I didn’t like, but this Clare Vivier Weekender in Camel has my name written all over it. I am in love with the lightweight leather and the chic look of the bag. I can already see it sitting on top of my Tumi carry-on holding my beloved Kindle, MacAir, and [...]

Destination Pretty: Parisian Beauty Find – Bioderma Cleansing Water


It is no secret I love me some Paris. But, one of the things I love is finding all these amazing beauty products that I can’t find in the U.S. I read tons of magazines (domestic & international) and the one thing I always ask is “what is the beauty editor buying.” I have been [...]
