{Music Mondays | Instrumentals by Quantic}

Quantic is an umbrella name for UK-born, Will Holland: acclaimed Producer, Musician and DJ for over 15 years evolving and involving styles like Funk & Jazz to Electronic & Folk music through to Latin, Reggae, Dub & Cumbia. This instrumental is perfect for lounging at a dinner party or background while you work. As a huge musical fan, I’ve realized sometimes the vocals are not necessary and one can get lost instrumentals! Here is one case.

{Backstage Pass | Glamhouse Opening Soiree}

Last Thursday evening, I had the opportunity to attend the launch party of Glamhouse, in West Hollywood. The event showcased pieces from coveted celebrity-designed jewelry brands which were made in collaboration with famous jeweler, Pascal Mouawad. For years, Pascal has been forging strong links between celebrities and the world of fashion jewelry, including collections such as House of Harlow by Nicole Ritchie, Belle Noel by Kim Kardashian, and Low Luv by Erin Wasson.

Celebrities graced the red carpet to celebrate the launch of his online store, and the adored lines they’ve coveted for sometime. A few in attendance were Nikki Reed looking gorgeous in a tribal scarf, Jenny McCarthy, Serinda Swan (TRON) in a beautiful bright orange number, the adorable Louise Roe, and many more. The showroom was bustling as I made my way through the blue dimmed lit space under elaborate white chandeliers. It wasn’t hard to find the decadent style at this event, and many dressed to their own beat, as I like best. Many rocked head pieces (below is one of Kim Kardashian’s – WANT), seems to be the latest trend of the season, and I only wished I could be as funky as the girl with the adorable yellow/orange scarf.   Nikki Reed’s donned a tribal scarf, and many of you know how I feel about tribal.
