day look- night look extremely different!!!

its extremely different-at least in my life

I always envy those who manage to look perfect- equally fabulous; when going to the grocery store and going to a party...

Go Ladies! I loveee it!


I am most certainly not one of those Ladies...

no matter how much I enjoy Glamour- i can only apply it to my life at a certain dose...

in other words: 

a lot of the times... during the day...i am just me- CASUAL :)))

heres is an example of a typical saturday:

I have to work out- I have run some errands- I have to pick up my fresh veggie juice at Whole Foods...etc...etc...etc...
long story short- just casual

BTW-I love the Burberry schal that i have in my hand- its one of my lifesavers...don't know why but wrapping something around my neck and shoulder makes me feel like it lifts the outfit...i am addicted to schals...this black one is one of the best! have so many pics with it on:))

me and the black schal in NYC

me and the black schal, about to go on the helicopter, to go to CATALINA


back to the subject:

yes, that was me in the morning

than- i had to go to a classical music concert by the Pacific Symphony, and dinner with the girls before the concert that saturday night so I glammed my self up...

Well, because it is a classical music concert- i try to keep it very formal- smart chic

-its almost a custom for the ladies to wear their fur coats to the Symphony so i wore my new chinchilla

the trick with wearing a chinchilla jacket, is to keep it solid black underneath- that way it looks so amazing!!!

one of these days i will try it with white underneath- not sure but we will see...definitely keep you posted...

the finished look

on a Different note:

i am obsessed with guacamole

well, i am obsessed with avocado- its like the best thing ever!

and said to be very healthy right... so why not eat it every single day(:

could be a little fattening because of the oil- but i believe that avocado oil is actually very good for our system...

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Scientific classification
Species:P. americana
Binomial name
Persea americana
Persea gratissima
The avocado (Persea americana) is a tree native to Central Mexico,[1] classified in the flowering plant family Lauraceae along with cinnamoncamphor and bay laurelAvocado or alligator pear also refers to the fruit (botanically a large berry that contains a single seed[2]) of the tree.
Avocados are commercially valuable and are cultivated in tropical and Mediterranean climates throughout the world. They have a green-skinned, fleshy body that may be pear-shaped, egg-shaped, or spherical. Commercially, it ripens after harvesting. Trees are partially self-pollinating and often are propagated through graftingto maintain a predictable quality and quantity of the fruit.

Avocado Oil Could 'Beat Heart Disease, Cancer And Signs Of Ageing'

Avocado oil may have anti-ageing properties like those attributed to olive oil, say researchers.
Fat pressed from the exotic fruit could be a potent weapon against conditions such as heart disease and cancer, it is claimed.
Avocado oil is similar in composition to olive oil, consumption of which is associated with unusually low levels of chronic disease in some Mediterranean countries.
New research conducted in Mexico, the world's largest avocado producer, has now demonstrated its power to combat destructive rogue oxygen molecules.
These unstable "free radicals" wreak havoc in the body, triggering chain reactions that destroy cell membranes, proteins and even DNA.
The phenomenon is one of the prime drivers of ageing and believed to play a major role in damage to arteries and cancer.
Oxygen free radicals, or "reactive oxygen species", are natural waste products of metabolism but may be generated in greater numbers due to factors such as pollution, tobacco smoke and radiation.
One hotspot for free radicals is mitochondria, rod-like bodies in cells that act as energy powerplants.
Many "antioxidant" chemicals in vegetables and fruits such as carrots and tomatoes are known to neutralise free radicals. But according to Christopher Cortes-Rojo, who led the new research on avocado oil, they cannot reach the free radicals in mitochondria.
"The problem is that the antioxidants in those substances are unable to enter mitochondria," said Mr Cortes-Rojo, from the University Michoacana de San Nicolas de Hidalgo in Morelia, Mexico.
"So free radicals go on damaging mitochondria, causing energy production to stop and the cell to collapse and die. An analogy would be that, during an oil spill, if we cleaned only the spilled oil instead of fixing the perforation where oil is escaping, then the oil would go on spilling, and fish would die anyway."
Experiments on yeast showed that avocado oil was effective against mitochondrial free radicals. Yeast cells treated with the oil were able to survive high exposure to iron, which triggers production of huge numbers of the molecules.
"These results could be attributed to the fact that avocado oil caused accelerated respiration in mitochondria, which indicate that the use of nutrients for producing energy for cell functions remains effective even in cells attacked by free radicals," said Mr Cortes-Rojo.
The findings were presented today at the annual meeting of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in San Diego, California.
Previous research conducted at Morelia General Hospital had shown that avocado lowers blood levels of cholesterol, and certain fats linked to diabetes.
"Our results are promising because they indicate that avocado consumption could improve the health status of diabetic and other patients through an additional mechanism to the improvement of blood lipids (fats)," said Mr Cortes-Rojo.
"We'll need to confirm that what has been observed in yeasts could occur in higher organisms, such as humans. We hope this will be the case, because there are many vital processes conserved in organisms that seem very dissimilar to humans."
He added: "In some Mediterranean countries, low or almost no appearance of these kinds of diseases has been associated with the high olive oil consumption. Olive oil has a fat composition similar to that found in avocado oil. Therefore, avocado oil could eventually be referred to as the olive oil of the Americas."

this is the guacamole from one of my fav. Mexican restaurant- Javier's

their Guacamole is the best, because i don't like raw onions that much...not my thing... and mostly guacamole is filled with onions...

the one they make at Javier's is not like that tough- can barely taste the onions...

it is extremely delicious!

Bon Appétit!!!
