Does Anyone See “A Pattern” Here?

I love turquoise and stripes! I never knew myself to be so predictable!  At least these are two things that I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that I will always love.  Now, if I could only figure out how to budget a checkbook!

So, my good friend Andrea Smith, who I met while living in Nashville, TN, announced her engagement today via Facebook! I just want to say how happy I am for her, because I know the countless blind dates, terrible parties, and frogs she had to go through to find her prince. I know, because I was there! Joshua, I know I have not gotten to meet you yet, but I am so thankful Andi has fallen in love with you and you with her as I know how happy you have made her over the years.  When Andrea came to visit me in Los Angeles, and we set out for our last day’s adventure (surfing), she had mentioned a special young man she had started to date.  I am not saying I am a psychic or anything, but Andi just had that sparkle in her eyes when she talked about her now fiance, Joshua.  I had a feeling he would be “the one.”


To the single ladies out there, it’s all good.  Good things come in time, and a lifetime is a very very longtime so do not settle and do not rush into a relationship heading towards marriage just so you can “be married.”  I know L.A. puts a lot of pressure on us women to be skinny, young, and beautiful forever and the expectations can sometimes be even harder as you get “older,” and by “older” I mean anything over 25, but I promise, just like Andrea and Joshua, you too will find our prince charming! So, let’s raise a glass to the happy couple!!!

WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!

Love you Andi!

Is Blood The Fountain of Youth? Hmmmm?

According to a company Selphyl, it is, sort of with a little help from your doctor. Selphyl has developed a new treatment for wrinkles, scars, and general skin impressions using your own blood. Results last up to a year and a half and there have been no reports of allergic reactions because the treatment magic formula comes from your own body. In particular, it is used to treat acne scars and damaged areas around knees and ankles using PRP- platelet rich plasma technology which has been around at least a decade. The results are evident immediately, but continue to enhance over a three week period. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and the Dr. draws a small amount of your own blood and separates the platelets from the fibrin, then places them into a concentrate known as the matrix. This is then injected into skin impressions, acne scars, wrinkles, and folds. Results last up to a year and a half!
The treatment is FDA approved and currently available. For more information, visit Selphly.com
