Jewel Mint...stylish, trendy, affordable

Little did I know that a friendly visit to my friends office at Jewel Mint would turn into an early Christmas. I love getting a sneak peek behind the scenes for cool lines. Like a kid in a candy store I want everything. I already had to part with a couple pieces for a stylist who stopped this morning. Aside from a handful of Smitten with Luxe bracelets she was collecting, she loved my Jewel Mint goodies.

Until Monday I'll just have to make due with the bracelet pictured below. I absolutely love this because it's very vintage looking, my favorite style. The chunky necklace and deco ring are fabulous as well.

Jewel Mint has some great new pieces coming soon so be sure to check out their website

Eco-Luxury designs: Three designers you should know

Janna Phillips, Eric Doolin and Jenda Michl
Three talented and creative designers on the eco-luxe scene

The ALIVE! Expo Green Pavilion/Mix Media Emmy lounge brought out a lot more than beauty and fashion this year. Janna Phillips owner/designer of Bohmod, Eric Doolin, owner/designer/artist of The Fractal Gallery, and Jenda Michl (Vertu Studio Inc) impressed guests with their unique and brilliant furniture designs made from all  eco-friendly materials. Janna Phillips, who often works together with partner Eric Doolin definitely knows how to create an eco-luxurious environment. As incredibly talented designers these two design for comfort and healthy living. On a moments notice they combined several pieces from Bohmod and The Fractal Gallery providing guests with all the comforts on home so they could get a little R & R from all the gifting and gabbing. One of my favorite things about Janna's pieces is that you can move them around easily and they're very functional. Eric's end tables and benches had mini planters built in. It was a nice indoor/outdoor touch.

Outside Jenda Michl's Flexist Bench offered guests a place to sit back and enjoy the 360 degree view from the roof top of the museum. Looks can be deceiving but this cool and unusual bench is extremely comfortable. It's perfect for anyone with eclectic taste and a large patio area. It can be designed more specific to meet your personal needs, or even made as a chaise lounge; add some pillows and you're set.

It was like a “Three Ring Circus”!!!!!
Hollywood, Ca. (Hollywood Today) 9/16/11—The event was held at the Peterson Automotive Museum in the Penthouse. At the entrance of the Peterson Automotive Museum, was the exhibit of the Spyker 2012 luxury top-flight custom racing car.  Nothing to say about it but WOW!!  As we entered the Museum we just had to take a quick peek at the vintage cars on display.  Definitely worth a trip to Mid-Wilshire to have a look, for sure!
As we exited the elevator to the Penthouse we were met with a breathtaking 360 degree view of Los Angeles. The Alive Expo Green Pavilion which was a Mix Media event was litteraly like a “Three Ring Circus” with VIP guests introducing their eco-friendly and luxury brands.
Smart Media a Green Technology  publication was on board promoting their slogan ” ONLY YOU..Can Save Energy!”  Their goal is to conquer one city at a time by educating people on how to save energy.  They were giving out a CD Video Magazine published by the non-profit Green Technology with funding and support in part from the American Re-investment and Recovery Act (ARR) along with many other supporters invovled in the energy world.
I spoke with Janna Phillips creator of “Bohmod” which is bohemian modern furniture.  I must say that she really raised my awareness about how important it is to buy furniture that not only lasts a long time but that can be recycled after you are done with it.  Her furniture is covered with hemp fabric which is made of a natural fiber.  The furniture’s foundation is made of foam.—–  Totally of foam with no metal or frame at all.  It is very comfortable as well as durable and easy to recover.  Once you are done with it—it can be shredded and used for other things as a recycled product.  I loved the furniture.  Very good find.
Clothing has been finding its way into the Green Market by using natural fibers as well as returning to hand knitting and sewing,  I stopped to speak with Adam Shaffer who has a store named “Undercover Fashion” in Santa Monica on the Third Street Promenade. He has been there  ten years plus. in the past he bought other lines to fill his store.  In recent years, he has become an eco- designer of his own line of clothing creating his own label for the store.  The label is, nothing else but ”Undercover.”  All of his knits and fabrics are of an eco friendly vibe.  I love the feel of the fabrics.  They are so soft and light seeming almost weight less. Next to the clothing were the spectacular “Spectacles for Humans.”  Great sunglasses. He can be found at
I met a lovely girl who is a jewelry designer.  Her name is Farrah Karina and her line of jewelry is named after her and called “Farrah Karina.”  She makes all kinds of jewelry that is spritual and happy in nature just like her.  She was delightful and is an over night success.  Many celebrities wear her jewelry.  She was gifting with her beautiful wrap bracelets that can be worn in the hair or wrapped around the wrist.  It is no wonder she is a success.  She is a happy spirit.  Check her jewelry out at FARRAHKARINA.COM Peggy Kotsopoulos was promoting  her book called “Must Have Been Something I Ate.  She served me a Vegan drink that was great.  She says that it is the answer to making you look and feel great too. She says that the Vegan drink is a great way to neutralize yourself after a heavy night of drinking the bubbly.
Speaking of drinking, I met Lindsey Tauer of Phillips Distilling Company who was serving a delicious Organic Vodka made into a Prairie Appletini which was fantastic!!!  I highly recommend their Vodka.  It was so smooth.  I am not the only one liking it, as they are a two-time winner of the Double Gold 2009 & 2011 San Fancisco World Spirits Competition.  Congratulations to Ed Phillips & Sons PRAIRIE ORGANIC VODKA!!!
Oh yes, what is an Emmy Party for the guys without a “Cigar.”  From Jerry Vazguer of 3LM Cigars they were rolling away and giving away one Cigar after another to the men in the crowd.
I had some regular water from the bar and then I had “Blackwater” from one of the vendors. Blackwater is a pure spring water enriched with a formula of Fulvic and Humic Acid which contains 77 plus trace minerals.
There is a huge list of things that Fulvic Acid does to improve your health and performance.  The one I liked is that it helps to remove toxins and metals from the body.  Check it out—www.blackwaterus,com  I am always looking for new and innovative ways to improve my health and after reading about it.  I am going to give it a try.
Several talent were walking around the event.  Kristen Aldridge. Stephen Bishiop (Mondey Ball w/Brad Pitt) Drew Powel (Straw Dogs) Scott Krinsky (series regular on Chuck).  Charlotte Ross (Glee) just to name a few. Then there was  Meeghan Henry— Miss Teen Asia USA.  She recently won her title.  Her platform was all about going “GREEN.”   GREEN is in the air and I’m not talking about money.  It was refreshing to me see so many joining together to make our world a better place.  I truly think that this wave of awareness to save our planet and clean up is a movement that will continue to grow.  Many more will join in the effort to heal the wounds of our own ignorance.  It is about creating awareness.  That they did in a very High Profile Emmy Award Winning Style.
