David Yurman is offering up something special: their Aluminum Renaissance Cable bracelets in a variety of vibrant colors, each inspired by a different cultural and historical experience. I'm wearing the yellow celadon which was inspired by "knotted ropes of yellow-green jade. Worn by the ancient Chinese as symbols of grace and status, now reborn as our Celadon Aluminum bracelet." Check out the other colors and see which power bracelet is perfect for you.

There's something better than breakfast at Tiffany's, and that is lunch at Cartier. Last week, I went on a little lunch break to Cartier and had the most wonderful and decadent experience. I tried on gold Love bracelets, a diamond Juste un Clou, pink and yellow diamond trinity rings, a triple mixed metal diamond solitaire, rose gold Love diamond rings; I drank Cartier water and ate Cartier mints. It was basically the most perfect day. As I was sitting in the chair with jewels brought to me, I remembered the last time I was at Cartier, and then I remembered that the last time I was at Cartier, I was snubbed! The last time I was there a few years ago, I was not yet a card carrying Cartier client and I asked to try on a gold Love bracelet. Instead of all the Cartier waters, diamonds and Cartier mints, I was Cartier rejected! First she told me, she didn't have my size. Then I said, I'll try on any size. Then she said that she couldn't let me. Then I asked her why. Then she looked dead into my eyes, lied, and said that it was Cartier's policy to not let anybody try them on. Scratches you see. Then I stormed out. Then the Cartier lady didn't do anything because she was happy to be rid of me. Sure, I was mad, but then, it's the price you pay to be an elitist. So now I just always remember to wear my Cartier when entering the store so that I can be an elitist too. How does that saying go? Cartier is always a good idea, unless you don't own any. #dontleavehomewithoutit

First birthday parties can be so tiring and so boring. I mean what 36 year old wants to watch a tiny baby ruin a perfectly good cake and then throw a huge tantrum because she can't nap in her luxurious mobile stroller bed? But I discovered how to make baby birthday parties WAY more fun. My tip: wear whatever the baby is wearing! For example, my baby's party was a Princess Party so I wore my own ridiculous giant tulle Princess Dress and immediately drank three champagnes. Major success for me and the baby. I'm ready for next year! Onesie party? Superhero party? Hopefully I can convince her to do a ballerina birthday party, I have a great Black Swan tutu that needs to be worn somewhere. #WhyNotAtABabysBirthdayParty

Having the perfect bob and maintaining the perfect bob is a pretty difficult feat that most people don't understand. Everyone is always assuming "you probably just wake up and go!" Actually no, I wake up, wash my hair, blow dry it, straighten it, and then wax down my bangs so that it looks like a forehead wall because the wind is my enemy. Finding the right stylist is even more trying. "I can't go that high in the back" "I can't go that tight in the back." "The cowlick prevents you from shaving the back so high and tight." I've heard it all and have endured numerous bad bobs to finally meet my Sassoon Stylist Soulmate Michael Forrey.  He's incredible. Ever since we met four months ago, it has been a whirlwind of monthly kikis where we dish, we laugh and he seamlessly and masterfully snips and snaps my fringe and A-line. Thank you Sassoon Salon for introducing me to my hairstylist soulmate. Husbands may come and go, but my bob haircut is forever...and so is my stylist. #myforeverhair
