I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Porter Gale of Virgin America Airlines. If you haven't flown their airline yet book your ticket today and take advantage of their Fabulous Fares Promotions. Virgin is the chicest airline out there and offers services like in-seat chatting, in flight WiFi and gourmet treats, not to mention their planes should be on an episode of "life styles of the rich and famous!" They also have a new show on the CW called "Fly Girls" which follows the lives of young attendants travelling from city to city in pursuit of parties and good times. Click for more info.

It's March Movie Madness for me this year as I've attended several VIP screenings of new releases. One of my favorites, clever enough I felt the need to blog about was The Joneses. Opening April 16th at select theaters The Joneses takes a clever spin on marketing and the lengths brands will go to get their products into the hands of influencers. Without giving too much away the premise is a marketing firm places faux families in affluent neighborhoods and have them sport the coolest products and brands out to influence their community. The marketing landscape has changed so much with the birth of social media and TIVO and it's really not that far fetched. It is interesting to see marketers come up with new innovative ideas, the movie of course show the EXTREME of that. If your career is in marketing you should go check this film out! Other movies I enjoyed, "City Island" w/ Andy Garcia AND "El Secreto De Sus Ojos," Argentian film, subtitled and won best foreign film at the Academy Awards.

These adorable little cards made My Style.com's hot list this month. Absolutely hilarious these "office slang flash cards for dummies" are a great tool to help educate the Michael Scott's of the business world with office terminology.
It's a very simple and clever product idea that can be used and customized to any industry. It would be very simple to make flash cards for a fashion line and highlight the newest season. You could also add flash card-esq style-tips on "how to wear" this fashion for this season. Click the image to browse MyStyle's Shop It List!

It was a beautiful but rainy evening overlooking the historical pool at The Beverly Hills Hotel. Guests mixed and mingled in honor of Urban Oasis a mentoring program that takes at risk youth and partners them with mentors in the community. Chanel 2's News Anchor Woman Suzanne Rico moderated a panel of AMAZING woman like Giselle Fernandez, Nancy Daniels and Caroline Styne. The Swag you ask Joico hair product, Harry Potter Movie and Frederick's of Hollywood VIP passes. No surprise to find great movie swag in this bag as One of Urban Oasis's mentoring programs partners with corporations like Warner Brothers and SONY studios. Mentees have the opportunity to visit their mentor on the job...Very cool! Click the pic for more info about Urban Oasis.
