I burst into tears when walking into my beautiful ‘Tea by the Sea’ bridal shower hosted by my mom and one of my closest girlfriends, Erin Falconer.  When people go out of their way to do such lovely things for you to make sure you feel incredibly special, it is an indescribable feeling of gratitude.

Set at Erin’s home in Venice, tea for 20 of my nearest and dearest was served on one hundred year old tea sets borrowed from my moms chic British friend. We ate little tea sandwiches and ‘GH’ cupcakes, sipped champagne, played a few bridal shower games, opened presents and just enjoyed being together.

As a thank you to my gracious hosts I gifted them Simone LeBlanc Staycation Spa boxes, which include a Tatine moonlight mile candle, Herbivore Botanicals Dead Sea salts, a pink clay cleansing bar soap, and a Fog Linen Work wash cloth, among other at-home luxuries.

It was so so beautiful and was even good enough for Martha Stewart! It’s featured on Martha Stewart Weddings here (!!!!!). A special thank you again mom and Erin for the unforgettable shower. You truly outdid yourselves.

I can’t believe that my wedding is THIS weekend! Ahhhh! I’m documenting quite a bit of it on SnapChat.  If you want to come on my exciting journey my username is GeriHirsch. xx

A Super Sexy, Fashion-Forward Swimsuit Line

Mikoh Mikoh Mikoh
If you’re looking for a super sexy, fashion-forward swimsuit to take on your spring break then MIKOH is it!

The line was created by sisters Oleema and Kalani Miller who were born and bred in the small beach town of San Clemente in Orange County, California with the ocean in their backyard.  The duo lived the quintessential Southern California lifestyle and hit the beach every single day in a bikini, of course!

After Oleema wrapped her pro-surfing career and Kalani finished studying business at the University of California Santa Barbara the two created the MIKOH brand. Its name derives from the girls’ last name, Miller, as well as the first initial of Kalani and Oleema and their younger sister’s name, Hana. In Japanese, miko is a term that once meant “female shaman” or “female prophecy.”

The line fuses statement prints and colors from around the world with luxurious fabrics and modern fits. Each bikini is seamless and hardware-free, designed to easily mix and match for one-of-a-kind styles.

Cute, right? Shop their sexy suits here or here.

In the context of diet and health, it’s smart to be wary of terms like “miracle” and “instant”—because 99.9% of the time, these claims really are too good to be true. “It’s a little tough to get foods to work on a physical level immediately, because they start on a cellular level and then show up physically,” confirms Dana James, New York-based nutritionist, to ELLE. But while we can’t expect our bodies to completely transform overnight, there actually are certain things we can eat that can make us look and feel better in a matter of hours.

De-bloat your gut, brighten up your complexion, and boost your immunity in a matter of hours with these 5 tips:

Wild Salmon or Arctic Char: Wild salmon and arctic char are both rich in Omega-3s, which help hydrate the skin and create a luminous glow. But to get this benefit you’ll need to get the dose right: six ounces, twice a day. Farmed salmon will not bring this benefit as it contains less than 1/10th of the Omega-3s that wild salmon contains.”

Chlorophyll Shot: Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants. It helps to oxygenate your cells, leading to more vitality and peachy cheeks. It also removes toxins like pesticides and mercury, which can make your skin look sallow and cause your energy to drag. Take a shot of chlorophyll each morning.”

Coconut Oil: Constipation happens—and more than you’re willing to publicly admit! But there is a very simple trick: Take a teaspoon of coconut oil in the morning and you’ll be ready to go. I recommend it blended in a cup of coffee à la Bulletproof-style or in a green smoothie. Hello flat stomach!
