Freebie Friday

It brings me so much joy to see Freebie Friday goodies being shared!  Practicing generosity with friends and total strangers has made me feel connected in ways I never anticipated.  I find myself looking for opportunities where I can be giving, generous and helpful to others, all week long.  🙂

This week:  I'm giving away two luxurious lipstick trios from Terre Mere.  Vegan, and organic, which I LOVE, these matte lipsticks are creamy, super smooth and don't dry your lips out.  A perfect statement lip, the shades are highly pigmented, yet wearable and long-lasting.   6 lipsticks total, retailing for $39 each, in a shades of natural pinks to deep reds, this is the perfect opportunity to win them and share with friends!  Plus, I'm throwing in 3 adorable heart-shaped Robin McGraw Lippy Lovey lip balms- a Freebie Friday worth over $200!

I shared mine with Natalie and Allison, two friends I adore.  Natalie is the woman behind @goglobaljewelry on Instagram, she is a brand ambassador for Ash + Ames, a jewelry company that empowers women artisans around the world.  The jewelry is beautiful, original and does good by giving back to developing countries and allowing women to own their own businesses.  I'm a fan!

Allison and I have known each other for a lifetime.  We met while we training to be professional dancers and attending UCLA.  Most recently, she's been an integral part of the worldwide Broadway smash Wicked and continues to perform and travel the world with the show.  A talented, beautiful and hilarious gypsy to the core.

To share Freebie Friday goodies with your friends, like the pic on my Instagram, tag a friend, or many, and a winner will be picked at random on Monday.  Be sure you are following me to win.

Special thanks to MyHabit for the Terre Mere lipsticks- and just in case you don't win, you can always buy them here- AND if you'd like a 20% off code good for anything on MyHabit leave a comment below and 10 lucky followers chosen at random will receive promo codes!  Happy Freebie Friday everyone!

Freebie Friday

Meet Dawn McCoy.  Blogger, influencer, actor, host, connector, creator of delicious lifestyle blog, Beauty Frosting and social media rock star.  When I met Dawn, I knew we were going to be friends, not in a stalker-y way (says me), but I could just tell she's my people.  I saw her speak, and ever since, she has inspired me daily to hustle more, ask for more, push more, connect more, and most importantly of all, give back more.  A woman who supports other women and lifts them up isn't the easiest thing to find in Hollywood, and Dawn's talents and drive are only surpassed by her generosity of heart.  I am so grateful to have her in my corner and thrilled that she's helping me #PracticeGenerosity and pay it forward this Freebie Friday!

We caught up this week over brunch for Purlisse's launch of their Blue Lotus collection, skincare that's free of parabens, petrochemicals, propylene glycol, synthetic color/fragrance, phthalates, and animal by-products, and is loaded with anti-oxidants, anti-agers and hydration.  I just tried the face mask and my skin is glowing!


This #FreebieFriday we are giving away a Purlisse gift set valued at over $300- including the Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum and Blue Lotus Brightening Serum! To enter, just like the picture on my Instagram, and tag a friend you'd like to share the prize with.  You can tag as many friends as you like, and be sure you are following me to win.   Paying it forward has never been easier!

Purlisse is a safe and natural skin care line started by my friend, Jennifer Yen.  As CEO and founder, her mission is all about creating pure beauty products using Asian skincare secrets, passed down from her Grandmother.  We met back in the day as 2 actors auditioning for commercials, and I am so thrilled to see how her company has grown and how truly wonderful the products are, especially for sensitive skin.  She is a fellow "mompreneur" and has built this company for the past 8 years!


Nothing I love more than a beauty-ful brunch with women who inspire!!!  Thank you Dawn, Jen and Purlisse!  Happy Freebie Friday everyone!

Freebie Friday

Everyone has a friend that when you meet for lunch, you find you are wearing the same outfit.  Me too.  Twinning!  Although mine's a guy.  Which tells you a lot about how I dress in my down time.   Anyhoo, although we maybe a tad too "mature" to twin it out identically, we are the perfect age to twin in out in rose gold and diamonds!   This Freebie Friday, I'm giving away 2 gorgeous watches for you and a friend.


On the left, is a JBW watch with real diamonds on the face and a mixed metal finish of rose gold and silver, which retails for $450.  On the right, is a $595 18K gold-plated stainless steel Invicta Angel watch in rose gold finish with a mother of pearl face, also available in this week's MyHabit #MyStyleFinds in case you don't win it here.   Two classic, chic watches you can wear like jewelry, worth over $1000- completely free!

Head over to my Instagram, like the pic, follow me and leave a comment tagging a friend you'd like to share this #FreebieFriday with.   Tag as many friends as you like, and the winner will be chosen at random by Monday.  Easy!

I love paying it forward Friday...

...and I love collaborating with like-minded women.  Meet this week's Freebie Friday collaborators:  Steph Farrar and Sierra French, creators of the delectable food blog, French and Farrar.

I love their healthy, flavorful recipes, gorgeous photos, and most of all their perspective.  Passionate and driven, we are cut from the same cloth. ☺️  We met about collaborating on future video projects and hit it off immediately.  Look out for big things to come from this duo in the near future, their upcoming projects are super exciting!  Thanks Steph and Sierra for being fabulous models and helping me grow my practice generosity.  xoxo

Freebie Friday

Thanks everyone for last week's #FreebieFriday turnout!  It's such a blast giving goodies away and watching women pay it forward, thank you for joining me in practicing generosity.  You guys rock!

This week- who likes CASHMERE?  While it feels far from winter in LA, this #FreebieFriday will take the chill out of the season for you AND a friend.

Speaking of friends, you know you've got a good one when you ask, "Hey after lunch would you mind being a beanie model with me in the parking lot?" and she doesn't even blink an eye.  Thanks Steph!!   I am blessed to have an amazing tribe of women in LA that I met when we were professional dancers, and we support one another unconditionally in all our endeavors, beanie modeling and beyond.   Steph is an amazing actor, producer, dancer, mother and former Miss Georgia, thank you very much!

She's helping me give away 2 Portolano 100% cashmere beanies which retail for $125 and $130.  One textured honeycomb in ivory and one classic ribbed in red.  They are soft, luxurious and warm and my favorite go-to on a not-so-great hair day.

Share this Valentine's weekend with someone special and I'm not talking about your man!   Send a little love to your tribe, your BFF, your rock, let her know you're thinking of her even in all the busyness of our daily lives.   Head over to my Instagram, like the pic and tag a friend you want to share the #FreebieFriday with!  Tag as many friends as you like and make sure you are following me.  Winner will be picked at random on Monday and it could be you and your bestie!

I hope you guys laugh as much as we do!

Special thanks to MyHabit for providing this week's #FreebieFriday goodies, to Stephanie Michels for being America's Next Top Beanie Model, and to Laurie for snapping the pics.  It takes a village, or in our case, a tribe.  Love you.

Freebie Friday

The right sunglasses can make your entire look, upping the cool factor exponentially. 

TGIFF!  It's #FreebieFriday peeps!  This week, I'm giving away TWO pairs of Covry Sunglasses.  One for you and one for a friend- c'mon the whole reason I started #FreebieFriday here was to pass good fortune along, so why not share the wealth?   Covry sunglasses feature an "elevated fit" which means they are perfect for faces with lower nose bridges and higher cheekbones (hello, my Asian sisters and brothers) but anyone can wear them comfortably.  They just sit a touch higher from your face, which is a good thing.

One winner will receive the White Lynx frames with pink lenses, shown above, AND the Vega with mirrored lenses in blue.  You can see how the Vega looks in black below or in my last post.  Each retails for $95.

To enter, follow me on Instagram, like the #FreebieFriday picture and leave a comment tagging a friend you'd like to share your new sunnies with.  Leave as many comments as you like, and this week's winner will be notified by Monday.   Thanks!

Dress: Red Valentino

Lipstick: Treat Collection

*Covry Sunglasses were given gratis, but opinions expressed are all my own.

Ladylike Chic


I was born in the wrong era.  I love 60's silhouettes, and this swingy little sheath from Red Valentino reminds me of everything I love about mod fashion.  Clean, crisp and ladylike, this combo is made modern with a bright yellow satchel, (consider yellow a neutral- just trust me), mirrored sunglasses and a bright orange lip.


Add in pearl accessories, a rose gold watch, and I am ready for lunchtime cocktails.  You know, just to be period appropriate...;-)


Can you guess what item in this post I'll be giving away this #FreebieFriday?   If you're new to #FreebieFriday,  I'm giving away goodies from my style closet to my loyal fans, followers and friends.  Stay tuned for more details and you could have something from this post land right at your doorstep.

Freebie Friday!


In my building my practice of generosity, every Friday, I'm giving away one item from my style closet to YOU- completely free!   This is the good stuff I want to share with my friends, fans and followers, and I will ship right to your door.  It's my little way of saying thank you for following and supporting my crazy adventures, some of you for years!  I am truly grateful and humbled by your support and encouragement.

To win the #FreebieFriday giveaway, follow me on Instagram, and tag at least 2 friends you think might be interested.   A winner will be picked at random by Monday.  Super simple!

This week, we're starting off with a, glow?  I'm a huge fan of non-invasive beauty, especially when it delivers results.  I love chemical-free, paraben-free, natural ways to stave off wrinkles and keep my skin looking fresh.  When I first met the folks at LightStim, I was skeptical...  Really, keeping this light on my face will increase collagen production and improve my wrinkles?  But then I tried it... and it works!  I've noticed a difference in my laugh lines and my skin looks radiant, clear and plumper, all without Botox, or chemicals.  There's good reason every high end spa has an LED light therapy facial on their menu.  It is FDA approved and has no contraindications.

I'm shipping a LightStim for Wrinkles, including serum and travel case, (valued at $250) to one lucky winner of the my first #FreebieFriday.  Good Luck! 🙂
