I have put together several of my Christmas “Do It Yourself” projects in to one video. In the video I show you how to repurpose old Christmas decorations, change ordinary candles into something special and several other projects.
I had a great interview today with Camille Clark, Beauty Editor of Genlux Magazine. We met at the Nordstroms Store in the Americana shopping plaza in Glendale, CA. Please check out their amazing website at www.genluxmagazine.com .
Every Monday evening for the last several years I play Pinochle … yep, that’s right Pinochle! Most of the time, our card games are held in Long Beach, CA (that’s where most of the card club members live), and so I find myself in that part of Southern California often. Last Monday evening, December 9th, 2013 was no exception, however I desperately needed to pick-up a few Christmas gifts for a dinner that I was attending on Wednesday. I remembered seeing this cute little women’s clothing store on Atlantic Ave., so I decided to stop by and see if they had what I needed.
The store is absolutely adorable and the staff extremely helpful, especially Kristen who helped me find my gifts. They have a large collection of women’s clothing, hand bags, and jewelry at very reasonable prices. In addition, they carry some wonderful candles and interesting perfumes. The store is located at 3803-B Atlantic Ave., Long Beach, California, 90807. You can also contact them at (562) 426-1777. Here are a few pictures from my visit. Please check out their website at www.cloverlongbeach.com.
On Thursday, December 5th, Steve left early in the morning and caught a flight to Chicago, IL. He will be making two appearances, December 6th and 7th at the brand new SK-II Skin Care counter in Bloomingdales on Michigan Ave. As most of you know, Steve is the National Skin Care Ambassador for the SK-II brand here in the United States. As you can see in the photo below, it is crazy cold in Chicago this weekend, so Steve is staying bundled up and warm.
