Fragola Showroom: Upscale clothing … discount prices

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.

i spy eye candy! – Los Angeles | where in the world is lola?.

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.

I just wanted to wish my jetset bestie, MaryAnne Been, a quick congrats for being selected by this prestigous resort as a Travel Influencer.  If you have ever seen this resort (I’ve only ever had dinner there) … it is GORGEOUS.  Dramatic cliffside views make for a VERY romantic dinner.

How to cook Thai food

Mandarin Oriental Thai Cooking School with Chef Narain – Jetset Extra.

Check out the video and yummy recipes from our trip to Thailand.  Mary Anne, with her culinary school background was a natural.  I might have struggled a little bit, but I still had a lot of fun making (and tasting) these traditional Thai recipes.

Medical Tourism in Thailand

Throwback Thursday:  Travel Edition

Here is a video I hosted and helped produce with my JetsetExtra family while we were in Thailand last year.  We met Kiana over lunch on our second day, and I was so surprised by the amount of medical tourists that choose Thailand so we were able to get in a piece about it!

Your Worldwide Vanity Hunter,

Maxine @VanityGirl 

P.S.  What about you?  Would you consider going to another country to get medical work done?  Why or why not?
