The Lucky Elephant

I recently returned from a beautiful vacation at Pukhet, Thailand.  We stayed in a villa on the west coast of Phuket, Thailand called  I believe it is the newest resort and I can vouch for the fact that it is absolutely gorgeous.

I believe it was our second night in Phuket when we decided to see a popular elephant show called Fantasea

As we were coming into Thailand we did run into Beyonce & Jay-Z in the airport and apparently they had visited Fantasea as well and I'm sure they were unaware at the time of the horrible abuse that these animals endure but I'm sure they know now.  And I really hope that they have a heart to do something about this. 
 Here is the article.

When I arrived to Nakaphuket, Thailand all I wanted to do was ride the elephants.  I wanted to go to the shows and be apart of their lives. But when I arrived to see the elephants I realized how hard their lives were and how horribly abused they are at the cost of people just like me who come there on vacation and are sold on glitz and glamour of seeing an elephant show or being able to ride them.  

This boy in the photo opened a jar to show me he was selling bracelets. The baby elephant opened his little trunk I think because he thought he was being fed and I couldn't believe what I saw. The boy pulled out something that looks like a horse shoe with daggers on both ends. He began to slam it into the baby elephants mouth to shut him up. I was in complete shock and just disgusted. 
As I looked further I realized the baby elephant was chained to the ground and ever so often the boy would repeatedly kick the elephant. It made me so sick to see this so I began to read more online and I feel terrible that I ever supported this type of treatment. Had I known I would not have.  Silly Americans, we don't think of these things.  I had no idea. The experience weighed on me so after doing some research I found that there is an elephant rescue in Thailand and you can pay to see them. 


 However they say that some of these elephants are so badly broken in their hearts that they will never be ok. I read that they start by breaking the baby elephants spirit when they are young so that they can be socialized with common people. I did in fact write a letter to Peta and I will follow up.  If you would like to contact Peta on this matter you are welcome to as well.

 I wanted to share this photo with you all in hopes that someone sees it and can pass along this experience so maybe we can help in some way.  

If you are interested in helping to save the elephants you can donate to this non-profit organization.

There were parts of Thailand that were just beautiful and I do hope to return someday.  
It's important to understand how the decisions we make affect ourselves and others around us.  This is a year in a time where I'm proud to be an American because although we're not perfect we have made great accomplishments in helping in situations like these.  Our little voices have helped to break some of these barriers.  So I do hope that you share this link and hope that great things will be in store for our friends, the elephants.

The Perfect Christmas Gifts For Her!

1.  Chanel Clutch

Nothing and I mean NOTHING says "I Love You" like a Chanel Clutch.  I change my mind constantly about which color I prefer.  So I've made up my mind that I need them all.  No Joke..

2.  Cartier Watch with "Diamonds"

I say diamonds for every man out there that hasn't gotten the memo that "diamonds are a girls best friend."  And the bigger the better.  That being said I think Cartier is the classiest of watches for a women.  


3.  Christian Louboutin 

My two favorite styles right now are the daffodile and the pigalle.  I tend to go for the highest heel imaginable.

Here shown is the Daffodile
Here shown is the Pigalle

Every woman needs that signature piece to bring a casual look to a whole different left.  Cute shoes, cute belts.  Louis Vuitton can make a gorgeous belt!

My Top 3 Favorite Bloggers making Millions!

Fashion Bloggers are taking over the scene and making the big bucks!  It used to be that the top Supermodels made about $10k a day.  But these lovely ladies are smoking those averages with the help of Instagram, Facebook and other social media outlets.  Song of Style's Aimee Song can command close to $50k an appearance.  Instagram and Facebook have made it easy for bloggers to link up with major brands to monetize sales.  This beats the hell out of a dingy bottle service career.

 I personally follow other bloggers for inspiration in my personal life and in my online boutique  A year ago I had no idea how much I would love being in the  fashion industry.  When I started my store it was designed to sell jewelry.  That got boring real quick.  Playing dress up with women from all around the world is exciting.  I dress the most beautiful women for weddings, birthdays, first dates, red carpet events etc. You name it, they call me for the job!  And there's no greater feeling than making women feel fabulous!  My store has been doing really well and the future is bright for  Here are my top inspirational Fashion Blogger picks!

1.  Meet Sydney Fashion Blogger

11:44AM, May 20, 2013
Cosmo talks fame, gowns and chickens with SFB, and finds out what it’s like to be a powerful blogger in her spare time…
Sydney Fashion Blogger is just a girl, standing in front of her iPhone, asking you to love her outfit. Although SFB – whose real name is Antoinette Marie – is a stylist and full-time creative producer by day, at the time of this interview she had over 200,000 followers on photo-sharing app Instagram. Companies dream of that kind of social media following; this is just one girl with an iPhone and a killer wardrobe.
Designers send her free clothes, hairdressers love to do her hair, and she’s on every guest list in the country. Girls chase her down the street, and even construction workers yell, “Hey, Sydney Fashion Blogger! I follow you on Insta,” when she walks past.
She also gets hundreds of emails every week from fans in Paris, Dubai, Cairo, Saudi Arabia, Rome, Beijing and London. When Cosmo got a look at her staggering social media stats, we really wanted to know one thing – how did she do it?
SFB may be ├╝ber-glam, but she’s also private and humble. For the record, we’ve seen inside her Facebook and blog records, and every follower is legit – she hasn’t bought a single one. She’s an honest-to-Zuckerberg social media success story.
If you follow her, you’ll know a few things: she’s crazy-beautiful, her handbag collection is amaze, she likes a good quote and goes out a lot. But what nobody knows – until now – is how she’s achieved worldwide fame.
How have you gone from 4000 followers in 2011 to over 200,000 today? You’re basically a social media wizard. It started casually! I was working in advertising, and I’d send my boss a photo every day for inspiration. When she got too busy and stopped reading my emails, I posted them on Facebook, and people begged me to start a blog. So I did.
That must have been early 2011. It was. Then I was invited to that year’s Mercedes-Benz Sydney Fashion Week. I went to the Alex Perry and Rachel Gilbert shows, then stayed the whole week, just meeting people. It was only two years ago, but nobody really knew what a blog was! They kept asking me “What’s a blogger?”
Who did you meet at Fashion Week? I don’t like name-dropping, but a lot of cool people, like designers and buyers. Especially this street-style photographer who shoots for Gucci and other fashion houses. He followed me and so did his friends. My followers grew that way. So simple! Meet a cool person, get them to follow you, repeat.
So what happened next? I was approached by a magazine in Italy to do styling. That’s how I broke into Europe, and that’s why I have a lot of Italian followers. They actually found me just by Googling “Sydney fashion bloggers” and my name came up first. Literally, because I own that name, when people say “I want a fashion blogger in Sydney,” I’m the top of the search. So it’s about friendships, search engine optimisation [SEO], and tagging things properly.
There are always going to be haters who say “she must have bought her followers.” What would you say to them? A lot of people buy their followers, but you can tell the difference. If you bought your followers, they’re just empty accounts, so when you post a photo you don’t  get any likes. You can only legitimately increase your reach if people like your photo, their friends see it, and there’s a knock-on effect like that. I’ve got proof that all of the stuff I’ve done is 100 percent viral. I’ve done no paid advertising on Facebook, and everything has just grown organically.
For most people, something goes viral once in their life. But every single post of yours goes viral. Yes! I almost always make the popular page on Instagram, which means I could get 2000 new followers with every new picture I post. That’s how it jumped up from 5000 to 99,000 in January, then 170,000 in March, 200,000 now – and who knows what next.
So, it’s 8.30pm on a Tuesday and you post a photo of you in a full-
length gown. Are you actually going out somewhere, or do you sometimes just dress up for fun? I’m always going out! I go to a lot of charity galas and functions. Plus, I’m from a big European family, so there’s always a wedding or an engagement party to go to! If I’m at a fitting, then I’ll always say so.
Why don’t you show your face? It’s a good face. Because I want the clothes to be the focus, I don’t want it to be about me personally. That way, people can imagine themselves wearing the outfit, even if they don’t look like me. It’s all about the fashion; I’m just a mannequin. 
SBF’s life on Insta:
*Swoon* SFB in one of her many ball gowns.
Katniss braids and BLING!
A dress fit for fashion royalty.
Selfie, with Chanel of course.
In the lifts at her office job: work wear with a twist.

I've had the privilege of corresponding with Antoinette Marie's (Sydney Fashion Blogger's) personal assistant and I've shipped dresses to her from my store  I am such a fan of hers.  I just love the old Hollywood Glam look.  Dare to be fabulous.  I started my store almost a year ago and most of the things I sell are gorgeous dinner or party dresses.  I've just started to add some beautiful evening gowns.  Since I've fallen into fashion I have the greatest feeling of pride in my heart.  I'm so proud of my store and I'm looking forward to eventually taking fashion classes and designing my own pieces.  Sydney Fashion Blogger is a huge influence to me and Shop Carley Glam.

2.  Amrezy

Blazer craze

If you haven't already noticed I am blazer junkie. I love love loveeeeeeeee them! I have so many in my closet and always get excited for more. Personally its my favorite accessories besides actual "accessories". It can dress up any outfit, from pants with a dressy shirt to jeans and a tee shirt. I wear blazers with pretty much everything, casual/dressy, flats/heels. It spices up all my outfits and looks so chic. I have blazers from Topshop, Zara, H&M, Forever21, Bebe. Topshop and Zara are generally my go to shopping stores, but especially for blazers. They're great quality and last really long. I especially love blazers with big shoulder pads!!!! The bigger the better! Always been my motto. How do you guys feel about blazers? Yay or nay?

I have to admit, when I heard Amrezy was moving to Los Angeles I almost packed my bags and moved back:)  I'm so over women that starve themselves to be a size 0.  Amrezy let's the world know that she loves every second of being a woman and is proud of the way God made her!  And let's face it, men love a great booty! 

3.  Song of Style


Hi guys! It’s been about 2 weeks since I left South Africa but since then I was in New York for a week and now just got back home to L.A. so I’m finally getting around to share my South Africa trip with you all! My sister Dani and I were invited by Sunglass Hut to attend Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Africa in Johannesburg. It wasn’t our first trip to South Africa (we went earlier this year) but it was our first time in Johannesburg and it was so different from Cape Town or Kynsna. It was definitely fancier than the other cities in South Africa I’ve been to with less scenery than you’d expect but more people who were aware of fashion.
The first day I got to South Africa, unfortunately Dani and my luggage didn’t make it so we went on a last minute shopping spree at Zara and thankfully also at Sunglass Hut. One of my favorite pair of mirrored Ray Bans (the one with the green mirror lens that I wore all the time in South Africa) were in transit somewhere in my luggage so I picked up these blue ones from Sunglass Hut instead. 

Beating Cancer

Hi Lovs, 

I received a call yesterday from my dear friend letting me know that that he has terminal, stage 4 lung cancer.  The doctors are giving him 2 months to a year to live. He's a person that I talk to all the time. We've talked for hours about my business and all the wonderful things I can do to build it.  He's been supportive and a great resource in helping me with the best intentions.  Here I am talking about the silly struggles in my life for hours to him on the phone over a pot of coffee and he never once let me know about this. He's a new friend, not someone I've had my whole life but he's been a better friend in a short amount of time than most. We had been planning to celebrate his birthday in las vegas with me this week and he disappeared.  A few  days later he calls to tell me that there is something happening in his life that he needs to share. So he sends me an article about him. The article came out in a press release so I'm glad he let me know before I stumbled upon it. I just felt completely blown away and touched. What a selfless person to put everyones petty pathetic troubles before his.  I read the most touching story of how they put a rush on his daughters wedding so that he could walk her down the isle.  Monty Brinson has the most beautiful heart.  I really believe that people come into your life for a reason and I feel completely blessed to have made such selfless, loving friend.

Here is an article on my buddy Monty Brinson.

 I'm really grateful that he did share this with me because my father is actually a lung cancer survivor.  He was given 6 weeks to live many years ago however,  my father didn't rely solely on doctors. He took herbs to shrink the tumors. Jerry Corbin knows an awful lot about curing cancer so we're all over this. If any of you are going through this as well I urge you to get into contact with my father and he will be very happy to help.  Here is an article with the herbs that my father took.  And here is my fathers contact:


Synertek Colostrum is a great product for building the immune system that the cancer is attacking. 
Take it on an empty stomach a half hour before eating. Make sure to take at least 1,000 mg, 3 times a day.

The best thing for fighting cancer is number one FIGHT! The second thing is Essiac Tea. I believe the best comes from Kevin Maloney. You can buy it online.
I buy the capsules. They are easiest to take and carry.

Subject: ESSIAC INFORMATION  From Kevin T Maloney

Jerry Corbin:

This is a follow up to our conversation on the original priority ESSIAC Formula from Rene M. Caisse RN. Hopefully this information
will be of some assistance to you. I will mail you the book “Bridge of Hope” along with an information package.

Feel free to contact me for further information.

This is some information that you can share with your friends. I added some more information to it today.

This is the information on the 3 ESSIAC products that I would send to the Medical and Health Care Practitioners including  MD's, DO's,
Naturopathic Doctors, Nutritionists, etc.       
Thank you for your interest in the original proprietary formula  ESSIAC® Products.

We have written testimonials which many people have sent to us and they would be put in your package with your order.
How long does it take to see any results from using essiac? 
I would need to know if you are using ESSIAC for Prevention & Detox or for a Major Illness including Cancer and if you are following  Protocol # 1 or # 2.
To help determine where your immune system is at and if it is coming back into balance, we need a guideline or pattern to see some results.

Blood tests are very helpful and in addition to your regular bllod work there are 3 extra blood tests to have included when you have your regular 
blood work done which are below in this email. Make sure that they have your Thyroid checked at the same time.
This will help to give you a good guide line on your immune system.

ESSIAC is all Natural - Safe - Effective - Drug Free  - Gluten Free - MSG Free with no side effects.  ESSIAC can be taken in conjunction with  any other  
 vitamin or supplement, any prescription and especially those who are  on   Chemo or Radiation. We suggest that those who are or  have been on  
 Chemo or Radiation should get started right away on the program to get the benefits of ESSIAC.    

  All 3 ESSIAC Products are the same formula, same potency and same strength and also Gluten Free so it is a matter of choice which one that you feel comfortable with.   
 The Powder Formula needs to be prepared and the preparation instructions  are at the end of this email.   

Information on Chemotherapy & Radiation:

    1. Ask what the strength that is going into the immune system
    2. Find out what the side effects are in writing
    3. What is the success rate ... 10-20-30 %  or is it 60-70-80 %
    4. What is your success rate Doctor in dealing with an illness like mine
    5. If the success rate is low, then does it make sense to destroy the live cells in the immune system for a low percentage success rate?
    6. It is important to have a strong immune system and a white blood count before going on the program.   

How can I be sure this website sells the real  ESSIAC and not a counterfeit? 

Things to remember when purchasing the original proprietary formula ESSIAC from Rene M Caisse RN. 
1.  Quality of Herbs   … COUNTERFEITERS substitute herbs when they can not get the original herbs.

2.  How the Herbs are processed for quality control.

3.  Who it is approved by; Health Canada has stricter conditions than the FDA, but the original ESSIAC formula is also approved by the FDA.

4. Must have a Notarized Trust Agreement signed by Rene M Caisse RN and witnessed stating that Rene M Caisse RN gave her formula to them.  

 5. The Label must have Rene M Caisse's Picture, her Signature, Made Only On Canada and the Canadian Maple LeafFlag   

These are some questions to ask your doctor.   

1. Do you include Preventative Medicine in your practice.  If answer is NO, that is fine 
 2. What are your personal thoughts to Vitamins and Suppplements.   If answer is NO, that is fine 
3. If the Doctor is strictly Conventional Medicine and does not have an open mind, then 
people will not tell their Doctor what they are taking as they have little or no knowledge of ESSIAC.  

4.  You never lose your options in life... so you ask your Doctor, what other options are available to me.
 If the Doctor say that they have no other options, then you ask the Doctor what is your success rate and 
I am not talking 1, 2, or 3 successes, I am talking many success rates. Then you make a decision from there 
 if you want to get another opinion    
 The blood tests follow the book "Bridge of Hope" half way down this email.   

 ESSIAC is all Natural - Safe - Effective - Drug Free  - Gluten Free - MSG Free with no side effects.  ESSIAC can be taken in conjunction
with  any other vitamin or supplement, any prescription and especially those who are  on   Chemo or Radiation. We suggest that those
who are or  have been on Chemo or Radiation should get started right away on the program to get the benefits of ESSIAC.   

 All 3 ESSIAC Products are the same formula, same potency and same strength and also Gluten Free so it is a matter of choice which
one that you feel comfortable with.  The Powder Formula needs to be prepared and the preparation instructions  are at the end of this email. 
The Vegetable Capsule formula are an all pure Vegetable Capsule with no animal products.

 ESSIAC has helped thousands of people with various illnesses including cancer for over 90 years since 1922. 


There are many different types of Cancer but the National Cancer Institute breaks them down namely:

1.  Carcinoma:   is cancers that begin in the skin or in tissues lining several internal organs.

2.  Sarcoma:  is cancer that generally starts in the bone, cartilage, fat, muscle or blood vessels.

3.    Leukemia:  is cancer that starts in blood-forming tissue and causes cancerous cells to enter the blood.

4.    Lymphoma:  and Myeloma begin in the immune system.

5.    Central Nervous System Cancers start in the brain orn spinal cord

Cancers are then named after the part of the body that it originates in (i.e. lung cancer, bladder cancer, etc.)

Malignant or cancerous tumors can spread to other parts of the body by invading the surrounding tissue. The
Cancer cells that spread to other parts of the body are “Metastases” Often times when a malignant tumor has
spread, the Lymph Nodes of that area will start to swell however almost any part of the body can be hit by cancerous
cells and it may not always be obvious.

The Canadian Cancer Society says that about 52% of all new cancer cases will be either lung, breast, colorectal or
prostate cancers. In general, 63% of those diagnosed with cancer will survive at least five years after their diagnosis.
It is estimated that prostate cancer will be the most frequently diagnosed cancer for men while for women it will be breast cancer.

For men the leading types of cancers causing death are lung and colorectal and for women it is lung and breast cancer.

Virtually everyone will in some way be touched by cancer and it is important a variety of treatments be offered and we never lose hope.
