A non-invasive beauty treatment that exfoliates, extracts, hydrates, and protects skin-giving you the most gorgeous after facial glow, the HydraFacial treatment is now my go to for a quick skin pick me up!  It’s a 30-40 minute facial treatment that leaves your pores thoroughly cleansed, skin absolutely glowing, and you- feeling refreshed. 

I’m a sucker for facial treatments, and will try every beauty treatment out there.  As I’ve hit my late 20’s, it takes more than a basic at home skincare regimen to get that youthful glow.  I’ve been on the search for a facial that complements my at home skincare schedule and had the pleasure of trying the HydraFacial treatment with Dr. Gina Danesh at Danesh Dermotology in her Beverly Hills office. 

The treatment is for everyone, and caters to all skin types addressing concerns like acne, congestion, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, hyper-pigmentation, and sun damage.

various tips that accompany each step

Gina cleaned my skin with a wipe, then began the multi step treatment:


1.     Vortex Cleansing:
What it does>>  Gently exfoliates the skin-removing dead skin cells and sebum
Personal Experience>> Felt like a cool, wet, gentle microdermabrasion with long fast strokes

2.     Acid Peel: 
What it does>>  Salicylic and Glycolic acid mixture (GlySal) loosen pore debries and dirt – essentially prevents formation of acne
Personal Experience>> Felt like light wet dabs with suction.  Painless, and rather comfortable



3.     Vortex Extraction
What it does>>  suction extracts blackheads and impurities from your pores
Personal Experience >>  Stronger suction is felt, but still painless.  Gina went over my chin and forehead a few times as I had more congestion there.

4.     Vortex Fusion
What it does>>  Detoxes, rejuvenates, and restores skin by infusing antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acids into the skin
Personal Experience>>  Personally my favorite step!  After the vortex extraction, my skin felt lighter and cleaner.  Gina went over my freshly cleansed skin with feather like strokes.  I could feel the cool antioxidants permeate my skin


Upon finishing, Gina showed me the bottle containing my impurities.  Floating in the tube was dead skin, debris, and congestion of sorts.  Disgusting knowing that much gunk was in my pores, but satisfying seeing it all extracted!



As an add on, Gina did an LED treatment with red and blue light.  Red to treat fine lines & blue for congestion and acne. 

The treatment was complete in less than an hour, and my skin felt amazing!  I could feel it breathing as I stepped out of the clinic.  My pores and blackheads were visibly diminished, skin left tighter, and overall, everything felt smooth, supple, and moist.  I attended an event later that night, and had even more of a glow the next day as my makeup effortlessly glided on.


Thank you Dr. Gina Danesh for such a pleasant experience!  You can book your facial at Danesh Dermatology by calling (310) 850-5441.

Fur vests are one of my favorite cold weather staples, and perfect for LA’s mild winters.  They add a touch of elegance to every outfit; and are luxurious layering pieces that keep you warm without the bulk.  

Since fur is a statement piece- adding texture and extravagance to the outfit, I try to keep the rest of my ensemble clean and simple.  I paired this piece from BCBG with a cropped sweater top and an A-line skirt to add a hint of feminine flair.  To complete the outfit, I slipped into Alexander Wangs Sigrid leather over the knee boots and headed off to Temecula for an afternoon of wine & tapas.  The outfit was perfect and transitioned seamlessly from a day out and about to a classy dinner in wine country without looking either over, or under dressed!

For our day trip to Temecula valley, we chose Leoness Cellars, a hilltop vineyard surrounded by breathtaking mountains, acers of greenery, and a cool breeze so fresh your pores tingle as you work your way through the estate sipping on a glass of Cabernet.  There’s a place for everyone here.  The tasting room is warm and cozy –filled with friendly wine club veterans, while the outdoor patio offers soft live music and scenery so picturesque, it’s something you’d find in paintings.

Amongst the vast selection of wines, my favorite pours were the Syrah & Cabernet – sweet & smoky with a hint of oak.

Christian Dior’s Lady Dior is one of the most iconic, feminine, and recognizable handbags of the century and deserves a space in every fashionistas closet.  With its elegant design, detailed stitching, and structured silhouette…  It’s truly a bag fit for a princess.  Lady Dior has graced the arms of modern royalty and countless celebrities alike from its launch in ’94 until today.  

As Princess Diana’s favorite purse, the bag was crowned/re-named “Lady Dior” and from then on experienced unparalleled success.  It goes down in bag history (at least in my book), as one of fashions most renowned and elegant pieces of accessory. 

Like Chanel’s classic flap bag, the Lady Dior is essentially timeless, but with each passing year, has more to offer its customers.  It’s now available in 4 different sizes ranging from Micro till Large, launched in all colors of the rainbow and more, and comes in everything from classic leather, extravagant exotics, to seasonal hits like sequins, tweed, and beads to name a few… 

The classic bags feature Dior’s signature “cannage” stitching, a smooth, sturdy arched handle, and a “D.i.o.r” jewelry charm offered most traditionally in gold and silver.  Each masterpiece is handcrafted, and takes nearly 8 hours to complete- so you are, essentially purchasing a piece of art! 

With such a selection of sizes, leather, and hardware to choose from, which will you get?  Please refer to below as a quick reference.  Enjoy!
