Ahhh the season of Fall!  Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes come back, we pull out our coats and jackets, and then there’s that little thing called football ;)

Being a San Francisco girl, the 49ers are obviously my team and its fun to dress up a bit to celebrate the games.  It’s such a fun feeling to get together with friends and huddle around the TV–at home, at a bar, or ideally at the new stadium (I’ve been and its amazing!)–and even better to serve up football with a little style!  For game day, I like the idea of incorporating my team’s apparel and then giving it a touch of glam and girly so that it’s ‘me’.  I actually didn’t realize this top was sequinned when I ordered it online but it definitely gives it an extra dose of sparkle, and is a nice addition to my Burberry trench.  Dressing sporty and supporting your team doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your own personal style, and I love that!

I’m honored to announce that I’ve been inducted into the NFL Hall of Fashion (…um, pinch me?) representing the San Francisco 49ers alongside other fans and their respective teams like Jordin Sparks, Erin Heatherton, Gino Smith, and the list goes on.  Pretty cool!

You can follow along all season across social media by checking out @NFLFanStyle and join in on the conversation and share your look too with #NFLFanStyle.

Colin Kaepernick…I’m waiting for you! ;)

what i’m loving lately

Avec Mallory Cheese Plate Continue reading

Hey guys…my latest roundup of fun things that I’m loving as of late…enjoy!

I’m hosting a ‘friendsgiving’ this year (Thanksgiving celebration with friends, before seeing my family) and I’m already on the hunt for creative and new food ideas to share with my guests.  I like the idea of going less traditional and doing small bites instead of a full sit-down dinner and I’ve been getting so much inspiration from the new blog Avec Mallory–especially this amazing cheese plate!  Mallory’s photography is just too good.

Calypso St Barth Home

This past weekend I checked out the Calypso St. Barth boutique in Larkspur, CA and it is one of the most beautifully curated stores I’ve ever seen.  I didn’t realize they had home goods (in addition to the wonderful clothes) and there are so many pieces that I want to bring into my home.  Their creamy neutral palette is so pretty, it makes me turn all heart-eye-emoji…haha!

UCSF benefit

I love fashion that gives back and I’m excited to be attending the upcoming charity gala The Taste of Stars benefiting the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Cancer Program on Thursday September 25th, 2014.  Some of the best San Francisco couturiers will be showcasing their latest designs, delicious food and drink, and live music!  It’s going to be a great event to support local designers and help children in need.  If you’re in the bay area, would love for you to join me at the event!  You can get your ticket here..but now I need to figure out what to wear..Hmmm.

Le Tote

Have you guys heard of / tried Le Tote?  I recently signed up for the subscription service and I’m pleasantly surprised!  Being a native San Franciscian, I love trying out and supporting local startups and I’m glad I tried Le Tote.  I’ve been really impressed with the perfectly curated boxes of clothing and love the concept of “Netflix for women’s fashion”.  You’ll definitely be seeing more from Le Tote on Just Add Glam soon!

Toni & Guy

New York Fashion Week has come and gone (did you see my NYFW post?) and now its time for London Fashion Week!  Naturally, London Fashion Week runway hair is being covered by none other than London-based TONI&GUY and I’m already seeing some amazing styles come out.  Since I’m having major FOMO from not being in London, I stopped by ULTA and picked up the three TONI&GUY styling collections that they are using backstage so I can try my hand at runway styles too (so so so many braids…you’ll see soon enough!)  The collections include casual, classic, and glamour and help make runway style more achievable!  A perfect addition to any stylish wardrobe, I say!

Okay guys, I can’t hold it in any longer…to celebrate London Fashion Week and TONI&GUY rocking runway hair, my friends over at ULTA are hooking up a lucky Just Add Glam reader with a $50 ULTA giftcard and TONI&GUY products!  What can I say…fashion month gets me so excited so I figured we needed to celebrate!  Entry is easy via the rafflecopter widget below…good luck!

Even though I’m no longer attending university, I love the concept of back to school.  I was one of those nerdy kids that liked new notebooks and pens to start off the school year.  But now I can celebrate September and back to school by dusting off my backpack (last seen in this post) and getting into collegiate vibe with my outfit.  A classic pencil dress with a buttoned up blouse and an extra collar of sparkle makes feel like I should be headed to the library for a study session.  Good luck to everyone heading back to school!

Happy New York Fashion Week!  Have you guys been keeping up with the shows either via live streaming or Instagram?  I unfortunately had some projects keeping me in San Francisco this year but with social media…its like you’re sitting front row!  All the fashion–without the jetlag, right?

Aside from seeing all of the designer’s new collections coming out, its also so fun to see what everyone is wearing outside of the shows.  I’ll admit it…my Instagram scrolling has increased by a huge amount the past week because its fun to soak in what everyone is wearing!  When I wasn’t glued to my phone, I met up with my blogger pals in San Francisco and opted for a look that was half casual, half glam.  There is nothing like a oversized, worn in chambray shirt paired with great accessories.

Another thing I’ve been obsessing about on Instagram?  How gorgeous everyone’s hair is after being transformed by TRESemmé at their Mercedes Benz Fashion Week salon.  To join in on the fun, I opted for some long, loose waves to keep in line with my casual / glam look.  I added a bit of TRESemmé’s Cashmere Touch Hydrating Serum to give a little extra pop and shine to my ombré color.

TRESemmé, the official hair care sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, shows women how they can achieve ready-to-wear hair at home by giving them access to the latest stylist secrets and hair trends straight from the runway.  Check out these how-to videos to see how you can get a runway-inspired look, and watch exclusive behind the scenes footage from the Fall 2014 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York!  It’s like we are right there with ‘em, enjoy!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…the best accessory you can wear is a great head of hair!

My friends at TRESemmé want you to get your own runway hair and are graciously providing a lucky Just Add Glam reader with a fabulous runway-ready hair package containing Tres Two Extra Firm Control Hair SprayTRESemme Keratin Smooth Infusing Smoothing Serum, a Cara ‘Desert Jewel’ head wrap, and a $10 Walgreens giftcard!  Entering is easy using the Rafflecopter widget below…good luck!

And one more thing…Go to your local Walgreens on Saturday October 4th, 2014 from 10am-5pm for a TRESemmé coupon and expert advice from Walgreens’ beauty advisors!

home office essentials

home office essentials Continue reading

Hey guys!  I thought it would be fun to share a behind the scenes look of my home office where I work on all things blogging related.  I often like to pop into coffee shops and cafes to work on blog posts since its fun to get outside and I love the ambient noise of coffee machines and customer chatter–but for when I have meetings and phone calls, its best to stay at my desk.  Keep on reading through to see what essentials I have at my desk!home office essentialsEven though I’m tech obsessed, I still love putting pen to paper.  For my day to day schedule and to-do lists, I use various notebooks and colored pens to keep myself organized.  This ‘run the world’ notebook from GiGi New York is especially fun for goal setting and brainstorming new ideas.

I rotate coffee table books around on my desk as well.  Right now I have The World in Vogue: People, Parties, Places at my fingertips.  It’s a gorgeous book and is great to flip through for inspiration!
home office essentialsI use a Canon camera with various lenses for my blog photos but I got this smaller Samsung NX300 earlier this summer for a more compact camera to travel with.  It’s great to keep in my bag and capture shots that inspire me…not to mention the automatic wifi is perfect to send images to my phone for Instagram on the go!

I’ve been using the HP Intel hybrid this summer and its been great for both travel fun (I brought in on vacation in this post) and blog business.  When I’m putting together a post, I like to stream music–from jazz, hip hop, classical, top 40, etc–it’s such great inspiration to let music into your mind (I’m actually listening to John Legend while I’m writing this post…).  Streaming music is a lot of fun when using the hybrid’s built in Beats by Dre sound system, it definitely packs a punch with the bass!home office essentialsMy hybrid laptop is also great for video chatting with my fabulous social media intern Tedi!  She’s the cutest ever and a critical part of the JAG team…can’t live without her! :)home office essentials More notebooks, a lipstick for stepping out to shoot blog photos, and my iPhone always within an arms reach!home office essentialsI love to have fresh flowers around and usually pick up a bouquet from the farmer’s market weekly.  The fresh scent keeps me motivated when tackling my inbox seems like a never ending task.

Thanks for coming to work with me today!
