3 Years of LuxLyfe + A Giveaway! Mon, 25 Aug 2014 17:32:15 +0000 I truly can’t believe it’s been three years since I started my online journey! When I began my blog my makeup career was in a transitional place and I knew I no longer wanted to do it professionally.  I longed for something more exciting….but I wasn’t sure what or how or when. In high school I wanted to host a show (specifically one like Wild on E!) and somehow along the way that dream seemed like it would never come to fruition.  Doing makeup allowed me to be part of the exciting world of entertainment without really putting myself out there… but it wasn’t my true passion.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the beauty industry, but I wanted to be on camera! It took me a really long time to admit that to myself.  Screen Shot 2014-08-25 at 10.44.08 AM

I am so thankful EVERYDAY that I started chasing my dreams when I did. I can’t imagine not doing what I do. It’s opened up doors and opportunities I truly only dreamed about. I’m not trying to toot my own horn, I’m trying to encourage people to go after what they want. There is a saying in farsi “Whenever you get the fish out of the water, it’s fresh” basically to me that means that no matter where you are in your life, it’s not to late to start something new and go after what you want. Sharzad Kiadeh

I love my job and have worked harder than ever. I have no clue where I will be next year or in five years and that’s what is so exciting about what I do. There are endless possibilities and the sky truly is the limit. Sharzad Kiadeh

I want to take a minute to say a sincere THANK YOU to everyone who has followed my online journey with me. Without your support I wouldn’t be able to do what I do.

Sharzad KiadehLast thing before I end my rant- I am giving away ONE ticket to come hear me speak on October 7th in LA with a ton of other major movers and shakers online. To qualify, just send me an email telling me what your dream job is and why you want the ticket.  It’s that simple. I will pick a winner by Friday!

Gotta Go!

The NICE GUY LA Fri, 22 Aug 2014 21:01:57 +0000 Last night I was invited to a press preview dinner at The NICE GUY LA, which officially opens to the public today. Woohoo! This sexy new spot has a total modern 60’s vibe… I know that sounds like it wouldn’t make sense, but just trust me on it. It’s the newest spot from the H.Wood group, who also own Bootsy Bellows and Shore Bar to name a few. The NICE GUY, located on La Cienega in the center of West Hollywood, serves up fantastic food like pizza topped with figs, caramelized onions, gorgonzola and thyme.  In addition to their killer food they have TONS of specialty cocktails and live music on most nights.  It’s reservation only, even for the bar (which I love) so it won’t ever feel packed or too crowded.  Enjoy the photos below and make a ressie ASAP for a ritzy night out. Sharzad Kiadeh

Golden Bronze Thu, 21 Aug 2014 16:16:24 +0000 After a recent selfie many of you asked about my makeup so I figured I would share my “Face of the day” and what I used to create it. Today’s look is all about summery golden bronze. I want my eyes to stand out so I used a bold copper shade on my lid followed by a pop of gold right in the center. I rimmed under my eyes with one of my all time favorite liners, Golden Bronze from Nyx, applied several coats of my fav mascara (Voluminous #duh) and kept everything else pretty neutral. All the products are below and you can purchase them straight from my site! Yippee! Happy Thursday kitties. Meow.

Bare Minerals Haul Wed, 20 Aug 2014 18:09:11 +0000 When I was in San Francisco a few weeks ago I got to visit the Bare Minerals headquarters (I share some of my trip on a recent vlog). In addition to my tour of the headquarters and getting my makeup done, I got gifted with a pretty awesome goodie bag. I wanted to share some of my favorite products with you guys. I hope you enjoy the haul!

BeautyCon Mon, 18 Aug 2014 18:07:39 +0000 Last weekend was BeautyCon. For those that don’t know BeautyCon is a beauty and style summit where influencers share their tips, secrets and stories about all things blogging, vlogging, makeup and fashion. It’s a great way to hear from and meet some of your favorite cyberlebrities. It’s fun to see how much it’s grown since last year too. I heard there were over 4,000 people at the LA Mart this year. So cray! Friday was the annual Platform pool party and Saturday was the big show. Hope you enjoy a snapshot of my weekend and my “get ready with me” video. THANK YOU to everyone that came up to me and said hi! Love my beautiful subscribers! BeautyconScreen Shot 2014-08-17 at 9.30.31 PM Screen Shot 2014-08-17 at 9.31.37 PM Screen Shot 2014-08-17 at 9.31.51 PM Screen Shot 2014-08-17 at 9.32.15 PM Screen Shot 2014-08-17 at 9.32.44 PM Screen Shot 2014-08-17 at 9.33.00 PM

Mommy & Me Thu, 14 Aug 2014 18:27:38 +0000 Happy Thursday! I’m excited to share the very first episode of Mommy & Me with you guys. Luckily for me I’m working with veteran mamas Colette Butler, who has 5 kids, and Kayli Butler who just had her third.

Baby’s First Road Trip Mon, 11 Aug 2014 20:07:24 +0000 A few weeks back Michael, Idris and I hopped in the car and headed up to the good’ol Bay Area. It was the baby’s first road trip and we had a blast. I will say that breast feeding on the side of the road off highway 5 in the sweltering heat is not my idea of fun, but luckily we only had to do it once during the 7ish hours it took to get up there. We got to spend two glorious weeks frolicking around the Bay from SF to Carmel and everywhere in between… and I gotta say, The Bay is BOOMING. Dang. One of the highlights of the trip included Idris meeting his Iranian great grandma. Enjoy the pics and video below!

As I mentioned, I grew up in the Bay Area, but every time I go back I try and squeeze in some new restaurants. On this last trip some of my favorite dining experiences include La Mar in SF for amazing ceviche and a killer view. I suggest going during the day so you can really soak in the scene. The Paragon Restaurant and Bar in The Claremont Hotel in Berkeley was awesome. They serve delish upscale California cuisine in a historic hotel with an amazing view of SF. Dametra Cafe in Carmel has the best dolma EVER and the owner always plays the guitar and sings for his customers. It’s so fun!

Gotta Go!
