I have known The Office Stylist, Sayeh for a long time now. She has impeccible taste and can make event the tiniest office look like a dream. Her makeovers are a must see. This week she provides style tips to add bold color to your office. Sayeh Says: If you are ever hesitant to use a bold color in your office space, try testing the color in little doses.

Beachcomber in Newport

For the ambiance alone The Beachcomber, Crystal Cove in Newport Beach is a must for a step back into time. As you walk up the sweet little bungalows are reminiscent of photos from the 1950's of people partying on the beach. The restaurant literally on the beach serves up fresh cocktails and classic American fair. To avoid the hour and a half wait we decided to sit at the bar facing the beach and have a few appetizers. A delicious grilled artichoke with lemon aioli, chicken skewers with peanut sauce, and breadsticks as you can see by the photo that were less like a stick and more like a bread stack. Frank Sinatra played in the background as we indulged. My next trip back to Newport, you know

Wisdom 2.0

The other day I attended my first (and definitely not my last) Wisdom 2.0 conference on Mindfulness and Leadership in Business, and the only word that can describe how I felt after the day was over is enlightened.

Tap Your Way To Wellness

I recently started "tapping" or the proper term EFT. Emotional Freedom Technique, in essence it is a way to re-wire your brain as Nick Ortner from the Tapping Solution puts it. Tapping simply allows you to take anything like feelings of anxiety, troubles with weight, physical pains or deep emotions from the past and move them out of the body. This is done by using a simple series of taps on the body's energy meridians. Tapping is a method rooted from Chinese acupuncture. It really gets to the core of our beliefs. It takes things that might be holding us back or troubling us and moves them out of our body and mind. We are able to create a new reality without all the old emotions and broken

Fall Beauty Must : Berry Lips

This fall add some color to your beautiful face by applying your favorite berry shade. Berry shades are great because they can be very versatile. For fair skin, choose a shade that is slightly darker but sheer and dab into lips with your finger. Medium or olive skin tones should choose a truer berry or cranberry. For dark skin, pick a deep wine color that doesn’t blend in with skin tone. Choose one that stand out a bit, be bold! To go with your new lip shade keep your skin flawless with some concealer and tinted moisturizer or a sheer foundation. In health & happiness, Denise #beauty #denise
