Riller & Fount

I’m constantly on the hunt for the softest, comfy, yet stylish tees, tunics and dresses. While I still live for Kain and Mark and Estel, Riller & Fount is my latest love. Co-founder of J Brand Jeans (which I love!), Susie Crippen, along with her BFF Marlena Ruiz teamed up to form […]

Parmesan Tilapia with Nutty Brussel Sprouts



Preheat oven to 375.

Blot your fillets to remove any excess water.  Combine parm, salt and pepper on a large plate.

Spread your fillets with Laughing Cow and coat in parmesan.

Coat a large casserole with non-stick spray, add fillets and cook about 7 minutes.

Remove from the oven and set it to broil.  Place the fillets back in for about 3 minutes or until nice and browned on top.  Keep an eye on them though so they don’t burn!

Brussel Sprouts

Steam brussel sprouts according to Glad bag instructions.

Meanwhile, toast walnuts over medium heat in a small skillet for about 8 minutes or until you begin to smell their toasty goodness.  Don’t walk away though, nuts can burn very easily due to the high oil content.

Toss warm sprouts with lemon zest, juice, thyme, salt and pepper.  Top with walnuts to serve.

Wishlist Items

This list is ever growing.  In fact, there are multiple lists, every growing…. Here are just a few of the items I’m currently drooling over: Love, love, love Siwy jeans.  The fit is ahhhmazing and for shorties like me, the crop length is perfect!  The […]

Tex-Mex Chicken Salad

I’m loving those store bought rotisserie chickens lately.  They yield so much meat and are super moist and tender.  The leftover possibilities are endless! 4 cups leftover chicken, chopped 1 15 oz. can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained 1 15 oz can of black beans, […]

Hollywood Intuition for Target


Jaye Hersh’s baby, Shop Intuition has been a long time favorite of pretty much every “It” girl in Hollywood.  Pick up any trash rag these days and you’re sure to see Paris or Lindsay coming out of the store with an Intuition bag (or several) in their hands.  It is truly a one stop shop for all the latest trends.  Jaye somehow always seems to be one step ahead in knowing what’s hot right now or what will be a month from now.

Well as if she’s not awesome enough already, Hersh has teamed up with the uber retail chain, Target to launch a line of accessories to include sunglasses, handbags, jewelry, scarves, headbands and hats all priced from $2.99 to $29.99.  The line hits Target stores this Sunday, July 12th and will be available through November 1st.

As is evident above, the pieces are very fashion forward, yet still classic enough to take you through a few seasons.  Although, at prices points like these, you needn’t feel guilty for indulging.

Says Hersh, “We took the trends coming to the market and tried to make them accessible to the Target audience based on the celebrities that come into my shop.  I build my relationships with my customers and they keep coming back because they like my taste. I’m very approachable; I’m a working mom. That’s the Target customer. I’m not a designer; I’m actually a shopkeeper.”  So modest!

I smell a Target trip coming….. on Sunday!!!
