Last night my hubby and I were invited to see a preview performance of The Scottsboro Boys at the Ahmanson Theatre. This bold new musical which has been nominated for 12 Tony Awards, was created by the masterminds behind Chicago and Caberet. The Scottsboro Boys centers around one of the most infamous events in American history: the case of nine African American men wrongly accused of a crime that they did not commit.

Last week, I was delighted to attend the opening night of End of the Rainbow with my close girlfriend Monique. It was a gorgeous Los Angeles night at the Music Center, we began the evening by dining al fresco and enjoying a lovely glass of wine and light bites before the Red Carpet Arrivals.
Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved movies and growing up in Los Angeles and being around the biz makes it even more exciting. And things get to a fevered pitch when the Awards Season rolls around! Parties, events and glamming is in full force and as media, I am fortunate enough to partake in many of the Awards Season festivities. Although, I rarely get invited to the actual awards shows, this year my Oscars dance card was rather full, let me tell you what I’ve been up to:
For years, beauty mavens have raved about the amazing facials and products from ARCONA, but I had never had a chance to visit until now. I was invited to ARCONA’s Santa Monica Studio for the Red-Carpet Radiance Treatment, a decadent service with everything you need to get your face glowing for award’s season. This loaded treatment includes a Brightening Facial Peel, ARCONA’s Signature Facial Contouring to lift and tone, a hand peel, oxygen spray to plump and hydrate your skin and an LED treatment to rejuvenate your face. This wonderful treatment is designed to boost radiance, improve collagen production, and smooth fine lines. I LOVED this facial! It was active and results oriented without being invasive or overly aggressive and my skin GLOWED!
Joico invited me to the swanky SLS Hotel to enjoy yummy nibbles, a micro mixology lesson and to learn all about the latest and greatest from Joico. First, we were introduced to Joico’s exciting new proprietary innovation called Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex, a peptide chain that repairs hair at the exact site of damage and prevents future damage by creating a shield of protection around the hair that lasts up to 25 shampoos (very exciting news)! Then we met the uber fab Damien Carney (pictured with me above), International Artistic Director for Joico, who walked us through the new styling products and showed us how to create the red-carpet looks at home with Joico’s reformulated styling products.
