The Headshot Truck Launch Party was held on Friday, July 25, 2014 at the Doheny Plaza Writers Guild Theatre in Beverly Hills. The event was hosted by Blue Eye Entertainment and included yummy tastings, delicious drinks and some good old music. And the gift bag was pretty awesome too.

The Headshot Truck has become the most sought after cutting-edge mobile photography studio tailored to serve the entertainment industry. The glitzy red carpet event had a Hollywood guest list that included top talent agents, managers, and their celebrity clients, and has the whole town buzzing about a new era in photography and mobile business.

The Headshot Truck is an all-inclusive, mobile photography studio where actors can get their headshots done. Every detail of The Headshot Truck experience, from start to finish, has been tailored to the needs of the actors they are there to serve. Their team of experts aboard each truck includes a makeup artist, wardrobe consultant and a photographer. Rain or shine, come hell or high water, their goal is to enable and empower every actor to produce a solid set of headshots, without breaking the bank or wasting time, so they can move on to other things, like say, focusing on auditions, acting classes and agent meetings. Fast. Fun. Affordable. It’s the best way to get shot in LA.

Congratulations The Headshot Truck on your success and thank you for having me at your fancy event. Oh and a big shout out to all the sponsors involved. Great event!

Veuve ClicquotHappy Friday Everyone! The weekend is finally here and it’s time to celebrate. So let’s pop open a bottle champagne to get this party started. But wait, not just any champagne, my love is the luxury champagne Veuve Clicquot Rosé. The Veuve Clicquot Rosé is a blend of red wines sourced from selected black grapes that ensure the marvelous balance of this unique Rosé wine. And to finish it off, add the Rosé Collection: the Haute Couture of champagne. Rosé Collection is a line of decorative gift boxes enclosing a bottle of non-vintage pink champagne, alone or with two flutes. The boxes open in an unfolding of pink pleats, like a delicate dress, to reveal the effervescent creation sheltered within. Trimmed in a motif that appears hand-stitched, these containers – in addition to keeping the champagne chilled for up to two hours – add a touch of elegance to any setting and occasion. Simple Gorgeous! Now how’s that for luxurious weekend? Enjoy!

Hello My Lovelies! Thank you for stopping by. Today’s blog post will reveal one of Beverly Hills best kept secrets for skincare. Visiting Kelly Reynolds Skin Studio was quite refreshing. It’s wasn’t the usual large overpopulated office, where you sit in a lobby waiting on someone to call your name. No, Kelly personally greets you me with a smile. The studio has such a homey feel. You feel special, as you should feel! I don’t know about you, but I love personal attention. Kelly sits with you to discuss your current skincare routine and maybe even a little girl chatter. (HeeHeeHee!)

Kelly’s studio is quite charming. When I arrived at the studio, she asked me to complete a skincare questionnaire. It was quick, precise and to the point (just the way I like questionnaires). After completing the questionnaire, Kelly went over the questionnaire with me. Unbelievably there were questions she asked about my skin that I couldn’t answer. (I’m thinking to myself, uh, I don’t know! LOL!)

Kelly Reynolds Skin Studio

Finally the time had come for the main attraction, the AH-MAZING Silkpeel and Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial!! Okay, you’re probably wondering what the heck are a Silkpeel and Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial.

The SilkPeel Dermalinfusion System combines non-invasive exfoliation with deep delivery of patient-specific solutions directly to the skin without the use of crystal or other chemical exfoliants. The procedure is non-invasive and even soothing; delivering the results you want without harsh chemicals or uncomfortable treatments!

Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion treatment simultaneously infuses moisture, vitamins and other active ingredients in the skin via cooling, calming topical hyperbaric oxygen resulting in luminous, unparalleled hydration and visible, age defying results. Re-hydrated, plumped up skin in less than an hour has garnered some of Hollywood’s most famous and beautiful devotees.

Now I’m not familiar with all the terminology and what order things should be done, but one thing I do know for sure is when my treatments were over, I was able to see and feel the difference right away. My skin felt as smooth as a baby’s bottom.  I told Kelly that my face felt ALIVE!

Kelly’s philosophy is this…”First impressions are everything. Your skin is the very first thing people notice about you!

Unfortunately too many people neglect their skin, fail to properly maintain and protect it, and use inferior products that can lead to even more damage. My goal is to become your skincare partner and develop a treatment plan for you that will keep your skin clear, beautiful and glowing all year around.

My approach to skincare is a personal one. Most large high end spas and doctor’s offices offer over-priced and impersonal services. I will take the time to get to know YOU and your skin, and form a long and lasting friendship where we work together to keep your skin healthy and AMAZING!!!”

Right now if you book online you can receive 25% off any regular priced treatment. Or if you have questions before you decide to book online, you can contacat Kelly at 310.962.7303. Enjoy!

Happy Monday My Lovelies! I hope your weekend was as wonderful as mine. As a Beverly Hills wedding planner, I’m always looking at luxury venues to share with my clients. I often revisit venues where I’ve previously worked to keep updated on changes made with staff and the venue. So here I am at the beautiful Beverly Hills Hotel.  I had the pleasure of brunching at the Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel with two fabulous young ladies, on your left Catering Manager Catherine Johnson and on your right Catering & Events Manager Kym Evets and yours truly in the middle. Beverly Hills Hotel Normally when I attend a business meeting and it’s over a meal, I order something light, like a salad. However I couldn’t hold back on ordering the Challuh French Toast, it sounded so yummy. It was calling my name, like “Beverly pick me, pick me“. Look at it! Would you turn it down? If I had, I would’ve been thinking about it the rest of the day. So why deprive myself. :) And trust me, it didn’t disappoint. Yum! Beverly Hills Hotel Now as if being treated to brunch was not enough, I was gifted with a gorgeous latte cup and saucer. However, it wasn’t your normal size latte cup and saucer. See for yourself. I love it! I also picked up a pen on the way out. Again, I couldn’t help myself. (Wink! Wink!) Beverly Hills Hotel Alright although the food was delicious and my latte cup and saucer was adorable, I was really there to see the updated ballrooms and hear about all the changes the hotel has recently undergone. A couple of years ago, I had the pleasure of coordinating a wedding at The Beverly Hills Hotel before the renovations so I was very excited to see all the GORGEOUSNESS and hear about the changes. (I’d love to share the wedding photos, but at the request of  the couple, I was asked not to.)  :(  I can’t wait to work at this venue again.

Kept in its original art deco style, the historic Crystal Ballroom is the hotel’s largest event room accommodating a maximum of 800 guests with private foyer, built-in stage and dance floor accented by a stunning Venetian crystal chandelier.  The ballroom’s French doors look out onto the beautiful lush Crystal Garden staged with a lovely white wedding gazebo. See more ballroom options here.

The Beverly Hills Hotel Contact Catherine at (310) 887-2459 for wedding inquiries or Kym at (310) 887-2520 for social and corporate inquires to schedule a tour of this Ah-Mazing venue. Trust me, you’re in for a real treat. And I don’t mean the food, although that’s good too. (hahaha) Enjoy!

Happy Monday My Lovelies! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I certainly did. Today’s blog post will take you to a place of calmness, peace and relaxation. (Just what you need on a Monday, right?) Hopefully you’ve been to this place before, but just in case you haven’t you’re in for a treat. When I think of calmness, peace and relaxation, I think of indulging in a nice warm bubble bath with a bath pillow, reading a good motivational book, sipping delicious wine in a sparkly wine glass, enjoying the aroma of a  scented candle all while taking tiny bites from beautifully created lemon tea cakes.

If this is you, here are the perfect scented candles from Beverly Hills Candles Boutique: Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills Mimosa candles. I absolutely love both candles and not just because of the names. LOL! I love the fragrances. And okay I must admit, they do put me in the spirit of Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive. After all, what do you expect from a Beverly Hills Insider? (Hahaha) Yes, this is one of the ways I was inspired to write all those fabulous articles.

Candles

Rodeo Drive – The most famous and fabulous place in Beverly Hills. The fresh floral scent of shopping down Rodeo Drive. Blossoms of magnolia, orange and citronella.

CandlesBeverly Hills Mimosa – The favorite brunch cocktail of the rich and famous. Pineapple, mimosa blossom, peach, plum, jasmine, lavender and orange.

Now I’ve selected my two favorites to share with you, but Beverly Hills Candles Boutique Collection offers so many more options. You can go here or http://www.BeverlyHillsCandleBoutiqueLLC.com to see the collection. I’m curious to know your favorite candle or shall I say favorites.

I have to share how they make their candles, so impressive. The candles contain the highest quality of soy wax to ensure an even and enduring burn with a powerful fragrant atmosphere.  Each candle is hand poured and wicked to create a spectacular candle experience.  The candles are 100% certified vegan which means they DO NOT contain animal by-products or animal origins.  They believe in no testing on animals and keeping our environment clean and healthy! That is awesome! Their mission is to make woman feel relaxed, sensual, beautiful, and confident.  When you light this candle they want the fragrances to enlighten you and take you on a whimsical journey while breathing in the scents of the striking themes.

JUST FOR YOU! When you call customer service to place your order, give them the promo code BHINSIDER and when you buy one, you’ll get one FREE. This offer is good from July 1, 2014 – July 14, 2014. Enjoy Beverly Hills Candles Boutique version of soy, vegan, and no animal cruelty candles. Oh and please come back and share your candle of choice. Can’t wait to hear from you.
