” I’m obsessed with the Laura Mercier under eye secret concealer and the secret brightening powder because it works wonders on the dark circles under my eyes. It makes me look like I have actually had a full nights sleep when in fact it’s been a good three years since I have, it’s one of my make-up must haves!”

“Legacies live forever, they just get littler” or so states Jolie, a self-professed Michael Stars fanatic for many years now.   This is what she writes….

Michael Stars launched Mikey Stars on 5/10 at The Americana at Brand (that Rick Caruso marriage between The Grove and Main Street USA).  I haven’t seen it yet (Americana or the shirts), but if the tees at all resemble Big Brother Michael Stars, brace yourself for an addiction in the making.  Mikey Stars…as if your didn’t twinkle enough already…

Crazy for Crocs

see more by

I have to admit, I didn’t used to get the Croc craze. They were kind of weird looking to me, and I was always surprised at how it seemed like EVERY kid at the mall or park were sporting a pair. Then, my daughter started toddling around and I realized how much time it took to take her tennies off and on when she just wanted to run outside for a minute. I thought, maybe these parents are onto something, and I bit the bullet and bought her a pair.  We opted for a light pink pair, and after the first day, we both were HOOKED.  They are easy for them to get on and off, they are waterproof (great for summer) and easy to clean.  I love the Croc Kiosk at the Irvine Spectrum (by Nordstrom’s and Anthropologie) under the big ferris wheel.  Great selection to pick up some “flare” AKA. Jibbetz! 71 Fortune Dr. Irvine 92618 – 949.450.9218

Crocs is sponsoring an awesome program called Soles United , which takes used pairs of donated Crocs and recycles them for distribution to people in need around the globe.  Check out the website for participating locations for drop off or instructions on how to mail them. The Irvine Spectrum has a collection bag. What a beautiful way to spread the love, one croc at a time!

“My all-time favorite diaper cream is Mustela Vitamin Barrier Cream. It’s a miracle! My daughter always seems to have a diaper rash or at least irritation. NOTHING worked… finally I splurged and bought this and it has been well worth it. If a rash is starting, I put this on and by the time she wakes up in the morning it’s all cleared up. Now I use it daily as a preventative and the difference in her diaper area is amazing. I can’t recommend it enough!”

Note from the peanut gallery: I can’t help but add my own favorite Mustela product!   I love the Foam Shampoo for Newborns.  My newborn had pretty bad cradle cap, and this shampoo TOTALLY took it away! You can put it on and use a gentle toothbrush to massage the scalp.  It was amazing how quickly it cleared up.

Bluebird Park Laguna Beach

see more by


To describe this park in one word would be LOVELY.  It is just lovely.

In a peaceful, gated area off Cress Street in Laguna Beach, this is truly a park that has it all.   Toddler play areas, older kid areas, tricycle/bicycle trails, a little bridge, trees for shade, gorgeous green grass, picnic tables, and my favorite, a CLEAN bathroom complete with kid’s size sink and potty.   What more could you need?

To get there, take Cress Street off PCH away from the ocean (it’s a light), and it will be on your right hand side before you hit Bluebird Canyon Road.  Mapquest address is: 798 Blue Bird Canyon Drive, Laguna Beach.  You can also turn right on Temple St., and there are a handful of parking spaces above the park.   I found this one on OC Family, and this park was # 1 on the 10 Best Playgrounds in OC list.  I plan to visit each one.  Stay tuned.
