Tonight, the Chamber will honor some of the most creative business in West Hollywood. Some of our faves have been nominated. Last year, Vanity Girl was nominated for Creative Communications, for the way that I’ve been able to put my brand on the map — with a little bit of Online Fame plus a little bit of Offline elbow grease. I lost out to a little known company called HBO (hello!), but honestly! That was truly a case of, “I’m just happy to be nominated!”
At any rate, this year I found myself behind the camera, producing some of the pre-event pieces and even working on capturing the night. More of that to come – but in the meantime make sure to click on the link above to see if one of your favorite WeHo Businesses have been nominated!

So, a couple of weeks ago the ladies of FourPlayGo (@mrsoaround the world @lolastravels and @jetsetextra) and I did a whole glam makeover and photo shoot with some of my favorite West Hollywood Glam Makers. Maleeza of Fragola Showroom supplied venue, clothes, shoes and campagne; Charles Hopkins did the photography; Cat did the syling; and Lyric did hair & makeup. Celebrity jeweler David outfitted us in jewels. Photos from that shoot are coming … and here are some from the entire trip.
I really wanted them to feel MY West Hollywood … i.e. Vanity Girl For the Day!
If you want in on the action, Maleeza is having an IN-SANE sale this weekend. Designer names … low low prices. Tell her VanityGirl sent you and Happy Shopping! Make sure to Instagram me if you pick anything up @VanityGirlHollywood.
One of my favorite things to do EVER is travel and blog/host about it. Soooo fun. This weekend, I will be doing a full-on staycation with the ladies of @FourPlayGo, a collective of Travel Content Creators. I am going to be showing them MY LA, especially in around WeHo (natch) and beyond.
Here’s the first of the our posts as Ms. Lola lands in LA. Make sure to follow us on Twitter to keep up with the festivities. I’ve never used that word before, but it seemed appropriate.
Join me as I chat with globally recognized celebrity colorist Marco Pelusi. His salon is smack dab in the heart of ultra chic Robertson Blvd, right near Lisa Vanderpump’s SUR Restaurant (having dinner there this Saturday with my travel blogger gal pals of FourPlayGo), Christian Loubitan and the ultra glam Phyllis Morris showroom. This street might be my fave in the West Hollywood Design District.
On the vanity side, we talk Fall Hair Trends and the evolution of ombre and Emmy Hair! Of course – I had to sneak a little bit of Breaking Bad since I binge watched the entire series in two weeks, thanks to my BFF and TV curator Julie. Don’t judge me.
On the business side, Marco talks about how he got his start, how he garnered his celebrity clientele and how Facebook and Twitter factor into his marketing mix. He grew up in the upscale salon business and then was recruited by Italian and Los Angeles companies to train on his techniques and he generously gives some advice to up and coming hairdressers in this podcast.
Click here to drop in on my chat with Marco!
Hey guys! So excited. Here’s my very first Podcast, Vanity Girl Radio, and I chatted with one of my favorite business chicks, Patty Rappa. I promised at least 5 Sales Secrets, but as I thought … she overdelivered
She and Beverly Macy encouraged me to start my own radio show after they interviewed me on theirs, so here I am!
TIP: Hang out with other business people who encourage you to “shine your light” too. There’s enough to go around
