Miss Kris Thanksglamming 1Thanksgiving is here! My favorite Holiday of the entire year. I love thanksgiving because it’s less about the hoopla and more about taking a second to be truly thankful, spend time with family and friends, eat and watch a lil football! Although, if you’re playing hostess this Thanksgiving you might be stressing a little to make sure everything is perfect for your guest. Well allow me to take a little stress off your shoulders and remove “decor” off your list.

Setting the Thanksgiving table is my favorite thing to do (prob because I don’t really cook). I just love the look of a well put together table. So classy. This year think about setting your table with fresh produce from the grocery store. It’s simply beautiful, evokes that farm fresh vibe (even if you’re eating canned goods) and you can pick everything up while you’re shopping at the market!

Here’s a little Youtube video to show you how:

Miss Kris Beverly Hills 3.3

Beverly Hills, CA – It’s a dress?! It’s a shirt?! I’m not really sure but when I saw this fabulous fringe piece squeezed between pieces on a rack in H&M I just knew I had to have it. When it comes to fashion, I’ve put a freeze on the purchase of black. Anything black …besides shoes _ accessories. I have WAY too many black pieces in my closet so for the next few months I’ll only be adding pieces of true value to the mix and not just another black dress.

Olive is the color of the Fall (along with my other favorite burgundy), is a great alternative to black and looks great on almost everyone. A nice, rich and warm jewel-tone that’s perfect for the season. This outfit has me feeling like a West Coast Carrie Bradshaw mixed with a hint of Troop Beverly Hills. A special thanks to the 4 way crosswalk on Rodeo for helping us achieve this shot. Have you make any olive purchases this season?

Miss Kris and Coffee 1

West Hollywood, CA – Bur first, coffee! No seriously… coffee! My day does not start with out a cup of that warm and delicious caffeine. My addiction to that early morning cup of joe actually started at a very young age when my Grandmother and Great-Grandmother with way up early, around 6 am and sit on the porch together to share a cup before their day started. I was the kinda kid that never wanted to miss out on anything, so there I was at 6 am sitting on the porch with those two beauties, sippin’ away. Although at the time they substituted hot cocoa for coffee in my cup, it was then and there in the early mornings on that simple front porch in Houston, Texas that the “but first, coffee!” tradition started for me.

Recently a new coffee shop opened in my neighborhood, Verve. I rushed down to try a cup and of course celebrated with a obligatory blogger photo shoot. Duh! Does anyone else associate any fond memories with coffee? When did coffee become such a thing? Adulting, I guess.

  • Evelyn - YES! I have a VERY similar tradition with my mother! I have been a coffee drinker as far back as I can remember. I used to steal my mom’s coffee when she wasn’t looking until she gave up and bought me a mini coffee mug from Chuck E Cheese. I used to feel so special sitting at the kitchen table every Saturday morning drinking coffee with her. We still do this every week! =DReplyCancel

    • MissKris - Awwwwww I love this! Thanks for sharing!!! xoReplyCancel

  • tiffany g - Yes! i so love coffee so much! but lately it has been contributing to my anxiety.im hoping i can start drinking it again though.i also like iced cappuccinos and iced lattesReplyCancel

  • Michelle - I cannot start a day without my cup of coffee, but although I love it I cannot drink another one after 12 or I cannot sleep at night. Funny that it has such an influence on me!

  • Nomads By Nature - Never could get the coffee thing. Lived in a very famous coffee producing country and everyone said I would be a coffee drinker then for sure. Nope. But tea!!! oh, yeah!!!! For me it is hot tea, in early morning, on the back porch now where we are. And in that quiet hour before day I feel like I’m sitting with my dad, who when he was alive sat outside – with his coffee – watching the day get started.ReplyCancel

  • Paulina - I can relate to the waking up at 6 in the morning with my grandmother just to take a cup of coffee to begin our day.ReplyCancel

  • Amanda - Love love love everything about this!ReplyCancel

  • Nolane - Love it ! You’re so cuuuuuuuuuuteReplyCancel

Miss Kris Office Space The Glam Factory Exciting news ladies and gents… I AN OFFICE SPACE!!!! Say what?!?!? Yes, me! Miss Kris presents The Glam Factory. The day I signed my lease I was full of emotions. Keys?! To an office?! For my business?! This has been a long and exciting adventure and the longer I stick to this entrepreneur game, the more I feel like I’m making headway. Building a business and a brand ain’t easy. It has really forced me to grow up and make some tough adult like decisions. As I start to make money from my business I had to decided if I was going to blow the money on hair and nails (’cause yassssss) or invest back into my business. I chose to invest! I signed the lease in the hopes that this spaces will give me more room to be creative, leading to more growth. Fingers crossed! xx xx

Of course, not of this would have been possible with out the support from you guys! Take a look inside my new space (click here to watch the video) and peep the desk we made with galvanized pipe from the hardware store. I’m hoping we’ll all have a lot of fun in this new office space.

  • Michelle - That’s exciting news, congratulations! I am curious about how everything will go from there!

  • Jo - I just found your blog and this was the first post I read… I want to say congrats. Not many can invest back into their business. Its very easy to say let me buy something for all the hard work i’ve done, so good job and good decision! <3ReplyCancel

  • Lei Montejo - Your blog is just inspiring! I love it :)ReplyCancel

  • Angela - Lovely space!ReplyCancel

Miss Kris Endless Summer 1Los Angeles, CA – September is here! Can you believe it? And with approach of the Labor Day weekend I guess that means Summer has officially coming to an end. Although, I live in sunny Southern California so is Summer ever really over?  I always consider the month of September Summer’s long kiss good-bye. The kids are back in school and folks are back to their regular work schedule, but for us here in L.A. we’re hit with some of our hottest days of the entire year. I’m talking heatwaves in the triple digits and the true meaning of the term endless Summer.

September is mix of sadness, while we say good-bye to the carefree months of June, July, August and excitement as we get back into the swing of our routine and prepare the change of seasons. I like to look at the month of September as my second start. Of course in January, we’re all pumped and excited to start a brand new year. As an entrepreneur, I find that I meet September with the same sort of January 1st excitement. I’ve had all Summer to plot and plan and now I’m ready to execute!

We have so many dreams and goals. So much to accomplish. Let’s start fresh this September and make the second half of the year a success. Think about it… in the fashion industry we all sit around waiting for the September issues to hit the shelves. By far the biggest and most thrilling issue of the entire year. The issue that ushers in the change of season and gets us all inspired for a new Fall wardrobe. Summers over, yes and we’re so sad to see it go, but a new season is here and we’re excited! A season of change and endless possibilities. Who’s ready for a fresh start?
