Here we have an incomplete but growing list of resources we would love to share with you. Nothing here is sponsored, none of your clicks make us any money, and no one can buy their way onto this page.


Breville Tea Maker: This makes the perfect cup of tea each and every time. We bought from Smith Tea Maker and didn’t pay sales tax or shipping.

Breville Espresso Machine: the dual boiler allows users to steam their milk while the espresso is being made.

Samovar Tea’s Earl Grey is Jessica’s obsession.

Klurskin this oil is great for your face (even if you have oily skin)

FAB Face Cleanser

Arcona: we love the whole line but the toner is our favorite. You can get it as a liquid, pre-soaked pads, or individually packed for travelers and gym goers. The PM Serum gives us overnight results.


Benefit Roller Lash Mascara proof it works 

Maybelline Brow Mascara


We emphatically encourage you to visit Emphatic. The Studio City location is staffed by some of the loveliest ladies in town.

The Taschen bookstore and gallery in Beverly Hills is where we pick up great art books for gifts and in the back there is artwork for sale. It is almost always photographs and always stunning.

Jenette Bras is the best bra boutique for women with a D cup or larger.

Sarah’s Lingerie for all sizes and for expert alterations (yes, you can alter your bras if you’ve lost weight!)


Thermos: Still the best water bottle out there.
