Lulu’s Crushworthy Secrets:
Crushworthy Makeup Bag: I was introduced to Porthault from my mother (who was obsessed by their amazingly beautiful and elegant prints…Every time I run my cosmetic bag to its last string I love going to Parthault to pick a new beautiful print. I have taken pride and joy in this act since I was about 10 years old.
Crushworthy Hair Secrets: I take hydrogen peroxide and run it through my hair before going into the sun..it gives me the perfect sun-bleached beach hair. (only need a VERY little and only do if your hair is light.)
Crushworthy Routines: Green juice with apple and ginger and your skin will sparkle. (*Crushworthymom all-star)
Crushworthy Uniform: My white silk embroidered Indian shirts that I wear always. My fabulously messed-up straw hat. Always blue jeans and gold sandles, My “M” and “F” initial necklaces my husband custom made for the birth of our twins.
Crushworthy Night Out: A few sunset cocktails with friends and in bed by 9.
Crushworthy Book: I couldn’t get enough of the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy (like everyone else in the World)…A great other book about family and children is The Competent Child.
Crushworthy Cocktail: Prisoner Red Wine
Crushworthy Motto: don’t take everything so seriously…live, love, shine and give back.
Crushworthy Lesson: To appreciate and be grateful for the beauties (and struggles) of life.
