Date Night

Whether single or married, date night is a must!  It gets you out of the routine of  waking up, going to work, going to the gym, going to bed.  It also gives us ladies a reason to trade in our business casual attire for something fun and flirty.  After all, this is date night! You want him to forget about everything but you and you want to forget everything but you too! From dinner and a movie to dancing till dawn, embrace the party girl inside, and make it a night so good,  you’ll want to do it again and again. However, before you make your reservation on Open Table, let’s go through a list of Date Night must haves!


The Look-Part 1:

Choose a dress or this season’s on trend romper that shows a little more skin or a top that that would never ever be appropriate for a business affair. Heels are a non-negotiable. Find ones that are comfortable so you can call it a night when you are ready, not because your feet are! These YSL heels which you can find at Nordstrom are my fave and I swear I could run a marathon in them!

The Look-Part 2:

You take time doing your hair and makeup, and even more time choosing the perfect outfit, and all for one reason. You want your guy to see you then gasp and smile like it is the very first time he laid eyes on you. If the first time he saw you was on your Tinder profile, then rest assured the look you get when you approach him in person, is the look he had when he right swiped. Take a moment and take it all in, and know that he is doing the same.  Also, when it comes to “the look”, the one you give him is equally important…across the table, during a giggle, on the dance floor etc. Confidence is the key to sexiness. Master your look, make it your own, and you will be enjoying many date nights to come.

Make it Last:

If everything goes according to plan, date night will involve activities that can ruin your perfect pout. I am referring to eating, sipping on your fave beverage (champagne of course!), and if all goes well, a kiss or two! I used to reapply lip gloss, on average, 28 times a night. I prefer the feel of gloss to its drier lipstick counterpart but it has zero staying power.  This is not a good quality for your date, OR your lip gloss! Recently while playing around at the Chanel counter in Nordstrom,  I was introduced to their long lasting lip color that feels like a gloss! For a mere $36, I have officially kicked my gloss habit! Way cheaper than gloss rehab!


You’ve got your outfit, your look, and your makeup perfected. You are ready! Now grab your date, enjoy your night, and remember it is always more fun being Glam & Sassy!

I was just in South Beach checking out Swim Week. It was so much fun! I love Miami and did not want to come home…and coming home is usually very nice since I live in San Diego! When asked where I was visiting from, most people were surprised to hear that I left one ocean to come hang out at another. Even more surprising because it is July…a very steamy time of year in Miami. The few days I spent there were no exception and while it was definitely hot and humid, it was also the fashion that was responsible for the heat. As the sun goes down, the MIA really starts to get hot! It is time to get off the beach and into the clubs! Read on to see how to dress for both!

Grin and Bare It:

When the temps are spiking, you want two things. One, to wear as little as possible, and two, to get in the water. You have to show up in Miami, Vegas, or even your friend’s pool party, looking as hot as the weather. Bikini’s are a great way to get some sun and show off some skin all at the same time. I love a halter top style and am convinced it is flattering on everyone. It holds up the girls nicely and you can bare sexy shoulders later that night sans strappy tan lines. To find the proper fit, measure around the fullest part of you bust and your natural waist. Once you find a style that “suits” you, I suggest getting it in more than one color to avoid having to repeat the process every time you realize you need, or want, a new bikini. Babajaan showed their 2016 Collection at Swim Week, but lucky for us, we can shop the current collection right now and I just love this Jackie Bamboo Bikini! It comes in lots of gorgeous colors too! Decisions, decisions…

Show Time:

Later in the evening, the Fashion Shows began. I had the absolute pleasure to stay at the W South Beach which was Swim Week central, and there was a lot of fashion eye candy. The runway was full of it too! In San Diego, you can wear flip flops almost year round and just about anywhere, but in Miami, heels are the footwear of choice and I had a great time checking out all of the stylish shoes. Even the models strutting in the amazing swimwear, wore them and looked six feet tall (and probably were!). The extra height a sexy pair of heels gives will also boost your confidence since they force you into having better posture and did I mention the bonus booty lift?!?

Dinner at 10 means Dancing by 12:

Much like its West Coast counterpart, Las Vegas, the night only ends in Miami when the sun comes up or when you do. My advice, stick it out till last call. Clubs like Liv and Story don’t even get going until after midnight, leaving you plenty of time to change into your killer outfit that will take you from dinner to dancing. A fun dress accessorized with the lots of bling and a cute clutch is the perfect look for an exciting night out . Wearing a hot little dress to dinner while noshing at Nobu (the yellowtail sashimi is to die for!) will keep you from eating yourself into food coma and being tempted to just call it a night with an in room movie and eye mask. Don’t do it! You can sleep when you get home, ladies! Keep the eye mask handy though. You will need it when you crawl into the comfy bed in your cool room at 5am and don’t forget to take off your dress first.
