The kings and queens of the bob are back with a new hair collection called Urbane at Sassoon Salon. These cool cuts are inspired by the modern day architecture and style of the 1970's. The stylists describe the Urbane collection as conjuring "a sky-city where light floods through the clouds into the concrete space of a high rise penthouse. Shapes are abstract, simple and pure with styling in shades of robin’s egg and cerulean blue inspired by the minimalism of fashion designer Helmut Lang." I could not have said it better myself. The hair is simple and chic and has all the right angles you want in a bob. I get my bob cut by my amazing Michael Forrey at SF's Sassoon Salon--also known as my forever bob stylist.

Naturalizer

I live and work in San Francisco, so I pound the pavement everyday to get to work, to get to the grocery store, to get the coffeehouse, to get to the mall. Which means, comfortable shoes that are cute and don’t also cut all your toes and the back of your heels is absolutely essential.  These Naturalizer Faith sandals fit the bill perfectly.  I know this because last weekend our cable and television were both out, which in the modern world basically means I was living in a post-apocalyptic world. What does this have to do with shoes? Well, when there’s no tv or internet to entertain you and your needy toddler, you end up going out and walking…a lot. These sandals walked from home to the playground, the sandbox, the bowling alley, the dinner restaurant, the park, chasing bubbles, and finally all the way back home which culminated in about 5 hours of walking while pushing a twenty five pound baby in a mobile bed. Needless to say, I was incredibly happy an thankful to have worn my Naturalizer sandals.  Best part, these sandals come in three different colors so they’ll match everything in your closet.  You can get them here and happy walking!

Most people don't know this but, I'm also an actress/model on the side. Yes, I have an actual modeling contract and yes I've been on castings and I've booked jobs. I have an agent who takes 20% and I've spent time on set in a trailer for "talent only." However, admittedly, my star seems to be stuck on an F-List trajectory. I only say this because the last job I was booked on was for a public service announcement about soda, where I had to audition by playing phantom tag with a motely crew that included two elderly people, a douchebag 20-something F-list audition pro that had been on "hundreds of these", and a girl who didn't know how to play tag. Needless to say, I was the Gigi Hadid of that casting. My other job was for a Microsoft internal office video that nobody would ever see and nobody would ever care about because when I asked for the reel, the production company said "I don't know." You think there's going to be a happy ending to this post, that ultimately I'm getting my big break in a national commercial and I've moved up to the D-list along with countless other movie extras. But it's not looking like that's going to be my happy ending.  Especially in light of the audition call I got from my agent today for a solar panels shoot--which is always so sexy--and hey, to bring my husband too! So, I'm going to auditions where they are literally begging people to audition for them because even the real struggling actors with no money or food are like, this shit is lame. It's on Friday, and we'll be going because I don't turn my nose up at $$$ and somebody there might know somebody who knows somebody who knows a powerful person that can get me into a Monistat commercial. You know the big leagues. #playingthegame #stickingtofashion #imnevergoingtomakeitbigami
