Since we are smack-dab in the middle of November and I know things are going to start getting crazy with the holidays, I thought I would share with you some of my recent favorite finds. Please share with all your gal pals and and spread the word on all my little discoveries.
1.) It’s All Greek to Me Cookbook by Debbie Matenopoulos
When I first moved to Los Angeles many moons ago, I started working at the celebrity news show, E! News. During my first few weeks on the job, I got to know television host, Debbie Matenopoulos. Debbie was co-hosting the newest show on E! at the time called, The Daily 10. What I loved about Debbie from the very beginning is her down to Earth personality and blunt sense of humor. Debbie is a real girls-girl as she tells it like it is and treats everyone with respect and kindness. Furthermore, she always believed in me and would tell me time and time again to never give up on my dreams. These days you will find Debbie launching her new cookbook, It’s All Greek to Me: Transform Your Health the Mediterranean Way with My Family’s Century-Old Recipes, where she shares her family’s authentic Greek recipes and adds her own special touch to make them even healthier. I could not be more proud of her. Thank you for being a friend.
2.) Sur La Table Pizza Stone
Last weekend, my friends made me home-made wood fired pizza with a gluten free crust, truffle oil, truffles, mushrooms and goat cheese. I lost my mind it was so damn good. You can create your very own pizza pie too by purchasing a “Pizza Stone” from Sur La Table! It gives you that mouth watering flavor and crispy texture of a brick oven pizza!
3.) Mayron’s Goods
I have had baby brains recently since I was asked to be the Godfather to a dear friend of mine. I came across these fabulous products by actress Melanie Mayron, most known for her role
as Melissa Steadman in “thirtysomething.” I was super impressed by her line of natural baby skin care products! A basket full of all her brilliantly clean products would be perfect for a baby shower!
4.) Creative Recreation “The Lazia” Sneakers
I am obsessed with Creative Recreation shoes for men! This new style is just too cute! I love that they are low top and totally versatile so you can wear them with jeans or a nice pair of slacks.
5.) El Leon Spa in Los Angeles
If you have not figured it out by now, I am a huge fan of spas! Nothing appeals to me more than a relaxing environment where you can calm your brain and be pampered. If you are in the Los Angeles area than please stop by El Leon on Beverly Blvd! Their body massages are insanely good! Their special therapists combine a wide variety of techniques and styles designed to meet your body and spirit’s needs. Please check it out, I love it there!
6.) Aveda Caribbean Therapy Soy Wax Candle
This candle is so heavenly! I love the plant based aroma that makes you feel like you are on a soothing vacation on a tropical island. I have always loved Aveda products but I find their candles oh-so-soothing!
7.) Whole Food’s Guacamole
I have a major crush on guacamole and when I discovered that Whole Foods rocked it with my favorite dip I was in hog heaven. Fresh avocado, lime, cilantro, onion, hot peppers, garlic, salt and pepper all blended together in one clear plastic container. You must try it!!
8.) Survival Of The Hippest Necklaces
