New Friends, New Finds in Los Angeles


I've always loved Los Angeles, in fact it's where I fell in love with Mr. Momtrends (but that's another story for another day). The weather is so good it's ridiculous, plus everyone is gorgeous and relaxed. I just love the West Coast vibe.

New Finds in Los Angeles

We've been cultivating our community "out West" since we launched Momtrends in 2007. Because trends start in two places--New York and LA. A LA stop on the Mom Boss Book Tour was essential. I found the perfect partner in Rachel Pitzel of XORachelPitzel. Rachel is the type of trendsetter I need in my life. She's a connector of people and a mom who celebrates life.

Rachel helped me gather friends at Blushington--the premiere beauty spot on both coasts. We gathered Los Angeles influencers for a afternoon of connecting and pampering. Blushington has two Los Angeles locations, we gathered at the West Hollywood spot. It's a gorgeous spot, flooded with light and gorgeously decorated.


Before the guests arrived I sat down with Bailey to get a professional makeup application. Moms, if you need a little boost for date night, head here! The Blushington artists are there seven days a week BONUS--they can come to you!

Rachel set up a wonderful spread for my new-to-me friends. The party was styled by Pamela from BasheryandCo (they have amazing party rentals too). I love the pineapple backdrop!


We always love treating out moms at our events. Our influential friends get invited to lots of things, we always want to leave them inspired. In addition to the pampering, I gave them my best business advice.

Mom Boss Success tips:

  1. Figure out where your profits will come from
  2. Set clear boundaries for work and family.
  3. Your business MUST solve a problem
  4. Always listen to your community and give them more of what they want--never stop analyzing your business.

I was also turned on to yummy pressed juices by Suja--a new brand to me. We also sipped wine from One Hope Winery and tea by Honest Tea. These girls know how to spend an afternoon.


Since we were talking trends, it's only fitting that we had Starling jewelry there. These delicate pieces work for tots to grown-ups. I picked up a gorgeous pair of black diamond earrings set in rose gold.


Not only did we send our guests off pretty & pampered, they also got goody bags with signed copies of Mom Boss and goodies from Clorox.
