  • Cocktail Party Etiquette for the Host and Guest

    For this week’s blog, I’m getting some help from my friend, Modern Etiquette Coach, Maggie Oldham. My husband and I attended one of Maggie’s dining etiquette classes last year and learned so much. She really has a great knack for making etiquette modern and relevant in today’s world. That’s why I asked for her help when I had some etiquette questions for my cocktail party that I had last month.  We chatted on the phone about some of my questions and I thought it would be a great idea for an upcoming blog post.  So here are the Maggie’s Modern Cocktail Party Etiquette Tips for the Host and Guest:   Cocktail Party Etiquette for the Host: How do you gently ask people to leave? A great way to signal that the party is coming to a close without having to directly and verbally ask guests to leave is to gradually start… Read More

  • Anti Aging / Anti Acne Dermatology Secrets

    Today I’m sharing a video with tips on how to tackle anti-aging while you’re also struggling with acne.  I’ve had acne most of my life in some degree or another, and I want to make sure I’m doing all I can to also tackle anti-aging.  That’s why I asked Dr. Corey Frucht to sit down with me and answer some tough questions.  Dr. Frucht is a cosmetic dermatologist at Santa Barbara Skin Care and he has to answer these same questions from his patients.  A little back story and how I met Corey, he and his wife Jesse are members of Sanford Winery, just like me and my husband.  We attended Sanford’s Annual Pinot Blending and Lobster Feast in May, and were sitting at the same table.  I love meeting new people! Ok, now let’s get to it….here’s my latest video Anti Aging / Anti Acne Secrets from a Dermatologist, learn a… Read More

  • Bubbles and Berries Cocktail

    Today on the blog I’m sharing a recipe for a drink called Bubbles and Berries. It’s inspired by the Bubbles and Berries cocktail at the restaurant Beauty and Essex in Los Angeles. If you follow me on Instagram and see my Instastories, you know that I thoroughly love Beauty and Essex. I’ve been in contact with their PR group and they were so gracious to give me the recipes to several of their cocktails, which I’ll be doing in a future post.  Unfortunately, they did not give me the recipe to this one, so I watched the bartender carefully and made a few tweaks to come up with this recipe. Specifically I don’t have sweet-and-sour at home so I make my own.  It’s actually a lot easier than you’d think, all you need is simple syrup and lemon juice. I must add that I haven’t always been a fan of… Read More
