Valentine’s Day may have come and gone but I am still drunk on all the love I had on #GalentinesDay thanks to the best host @iamdawnmccoy! There is nothing better than being surrounded by women that are beautiful in every way! It also doesn’t hurt when your time with them is enhanced thanks to @gearysbeverlyhills! We were treated to the most lovely lunch at @georgie_bh and the details were EVERYTHING! From the stunning linens from @luxe_linen gorgeous florals from @sonnyalexanderflowers and incredible tablescape by @vistaalegreofficial! And a very special thank you to the ultimate woman @carakleinhaut who owns @weareagenc. You are beyond in every sense of the word!! You really are remarkable! So cheers to celebrating the gals in your life...today...and always! ~C💋 #wewonderandwander#GiftGearys#HowToGeorgie#SonnyAlexanderFlowers#beverlyhills#womensupportingwomen
I couldn’t be more grateful for the gift of great friends in this industry. LA has a way of throwing curveballs and keeping you on your toes, but I believe that life is about going for it, keeping your faith strong, improving everyday, working hard, designing a life you love, and most importantly...finding the RIGHT people to share it with!! Thank you sooo much to all the amazing people who made this FABULOUS day happen! ❤️❤️

Now this is how you #galentines ! 😍 What an elegant event hosted by @iamdawnmccoy and @gearysBeverlyHills. I spent a lovely afternoon with some inspiring women who are all about supporting other women. 💪🏻 Isn’t that what a Galentines should be about? 😜 Swipe left to see more of the gorgeous tablescape created by #gearys , @luxe_linen, @sonnyalexanderflowers, and @vistaalegreofficial. I’m so glad they didn’t check my fancy card at the door because I don’t think I would have been let in! 🤣
Thank you to @georgie_BH for the amazing meal (menu cookie you guys!) and @wearagenc for putting together another beautiful event. 🙌 If you need some elegant #valentinesday gift ideas check out Gearys! Then tell me who would sit at your Galentines table?
I just stayed up all night in Paris just so I could send a love note to all of these lovely ladies from my #GalentinesDay luncheon with @GearysBeverlyHills this past Friday.
At the luncheon with an iconic black and white tablescape that would make @OfficialAgathaChristie jealous, I asked all 23 of my guests to share their answers to the following question:
What do you love most about the way you look?
And, what do you love most about the way you live?
I asked the first question not from a vapid place but because every day I hear women vent what they wish they could change physically about themselves:
What cream will fix a perceived flaw...
The number on the scale that haunts them...
The gray hair that just can't be colored over enough...
The body that is never enough even though it carried and fed their children.
I asked them this because I wanted to them to see themselves the way that I see them, acknowledging that each one of them is perfectly beautiful in their own imperfection.
We all are perfect in this single way.
Across a beautiful tablescape with linens by @luxe_linen, place settings by @VistaAlegteOfficial, flowers by @SonnyAlexanderFlowers and delicious fare by @Georgie_BH, we shared the things we loved about ourselves for a few hours in a world that doesn't always encourage us to love on ourselves.
On this eve of Valentine's Day, I celebrate each and every one of these women, and toast to what each one of these inspiring women brought to the table...literally.
I am a big believer in - and, proponent of - women supporting women, and it fills my heart and delights my soul that bringing all of these women together might foster new friendships, business opportunities, collaboration and support systems.
May we love on ourselves - and, each other - a little more every day.

Laying in bed enjoying a lazy Saturday - our youngest son is making his 3 friends that slept over breakfast 🍳 and Devan is at his new job for orientation this am 💕- and I am lying here dreaming of this gorgeousssssss luncheon hosted by one of my best friends @iamdawnmccoy x @gearysbeverlyhills at @georgie_bh yesterday. As we sat around the most beautifully decorated table, sipping a cocktail at 12:30p all dressed up and so happy to be part of the day, I felt such a sense of awe. Awe of the friendships I have made over the last decade, living in this city that is not always full of angels 😉 and how they are such magikal, KIND (thank you for the reminder of how important this one is, Dawn!), supportive and loving people. Some of them I’ve known since shortly after I moved here in November 2007, some I’ve met over the years, some left, some became like family, some disappeared, some I let go of, some were at my wedding (registry was at @gearysbeverlyhills 💛) and the list goes on. But more than ever, I have an acute awareness of how truly important it is to have quality in a friendship or any relationship or thing vs quantity. Similar to any moment in life, it’s so important for me to constantly ask myself does this lift and fill up my energy, my heart and my space? I spent so many years not paying attention to what was surrounding me and this place of content and joy and quality of love is something we all get access to in life, so I hope you’ll choose to find yours too 💛🙌💕#GiftGEARYS#HowToGeorgie

What do you drink in the mornings? I’ve been loving hot water with lemon to start and alternating my coffee and tea every other day. I typically do a black coffee with a splash of coconut milk and a pump of vanilla flavor, but can’t resist an almond milk vanilla latte every once and a while! Even though I have been hearing great things about matcha, I’m not sure where to start, any suggestions? | more LA coffee spots on GiseleChic.com ☕️
