I can’t talk about the Onerta Plant Stem Cell Peptide Serum without talking about the creator first.  Biba is hands down the best esthetician I’ve had!  I have followed her from location to location for years and years, until she created her permanent home at BIBA Los Angeles.  Her profound love for her craft and deep understanding of skincare has made her a one-of-a-kind. There is no one-size-fits-all approach here.  Everything is customized for your skin and what it needs. And with celebrity clients like Emily Blunt, Miley Cyrus, Emma Roberts and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the secret is out!

Biba’s passion and knowledge are also embedded in her product line!  My favorite is the firming and nourishing Onerta Plant Stem Cell Peptide Serum.  This sophisticated cocktail is rich with cell-communicating Palmitoyl Tripeptides-5, 38 and cell-protecting Echinacea Plant Stem Cells that help stimulate collagen. And when you add hydration-boosting Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol and skin rejuvenating CoQ10 to the mix, you have perfect skin nutrition.  Such a highly effective, multi-tasking warrior product!  Skin feels and looks smoother, strengthened and revitalized.

Most Stem Cell and Peptide loaded products tend to be very expensive. Comparatively, Biba’s Serum is reasonable at $80. And like all her products,  it’s organic, vegan, cruelty free, non comedogenic, phthalates and sulfate free. This is a winner for all skin types.

Inspired by London, button me up in these beauties.

I arrived in London about a week ago and although I live in Los Angeles the cold weather has brought out coat and jacket envy. I’ve kept myself in check, mostly, as I live in Los Angeles and it’s hard to justify with the mild climate. But,  I can’t stop admiring this seasons fashionable Brits. No matter what you’ve got on underneath, a stylish coat can put a strut in your step!

ALL SAINTS SPITALFIELDS Check Gaboury Parka $650.00 Truly inspired by London style combining a traditional Italian wool blend check cloth with contrasting black biker leather sleeves.

TOPSHOP Textured Wool Biker Jacket $150.00 This grey textured wool biker jacket with cream borg lining is actually a winner for milder climates like Los Angeles where a truly heavy coat isn’t really needed. Or, you can layer it under a heavier coat and pull out the cool cream collar for a different look.  100% wool and machine washable.

Etoile Isabel Marant Kady quilted leather jacket $1,160.00. My personal favorite and a truly worthy Fall Splurge. Isabel Marant is the Paris designer of the moment and this washed leather biker jacket truly captures the cool, carefree spirit of her second label Étoile. Silver hardware, shoulder epaulettes, and quilted detailing make this a edgy and sophisticated.

H & M Faux Fur Jacket $99.00 If you can rock this look, do it! It’s harder to pull of in LA with so much faux fur going on but it’s a great price and cruelty free. It’ll make you feel sexy and glamorous and will certainly turn heads!
