Oh no! UGG Met Jimmy Choo!


No matter what you do to an UGG, they’re still the ugliest boots known to man. And why, UGG partnered with the polar opposite in style, Jimmy Choo to come out with limited edition boots, I’ll never know. UGG meets Jimmy Choo are available here. If you must, pre-order now. You’re going to have to be satisfied with images; you can’t actually see the real deal until Wednesday, Oct. 6. 

That’s when Jimmy Choo at South Coast Plaza will receive sample boots to try on and pre-order (boots should arrive to pick up Oct. 12). Problem is by Oct. 6 they could already be sold out. It’s your call.

Prices range from $495 to $795. Choose from five styles with decorative Jimmy Choo studding, stars, grommets, leopard, zebra and hobo fringing detail. I predict a sell-out, and sadly knock-offs everywhere.

One World, One Goal, One Cure


UCI is working tirelessly on diabetes research. And I am beyond thankful for that! Sadly, both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are on the rise, and we need continued research to find a cure. Please join the annual Celebrate the Center: The Allure of India, a cocktail party at the Island Hotel & Resort in Newport Beach on Thursday, Sept. 16 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

It will be an incredible evening of wine pairing, hors d’ouevres, entertainment and most importantly a research update from Dr. George Chandy, whose research could result in a treatment to eliminate insulin dependence in type 1 diabetes. Tickets cost $100 each.
The UC Irvine Center for Diabetes Treatment and Research, and its team of scientists are dedicated to advancing research to prevent and cure type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Marche Noir Pasta in WSJ!


Three cheers for Chef Rachel Marie Klemek at Blackmarket Bakery in Irvine and creator of Marche Noir foods, an innovative line of nutritious and tasty wine flour based pastas, brownies and other baked goods. Marche Noir’s Pasta Caberneti, a purple-hued black penne pasta was just featured in the Wall Street Journal (seen above). 

Looks like Fireside’s chefs at the Omni Berkshire Place Hotel in Midtown Manhattan are also fans of Marche Noir and follow Chef Rachel Marie’s motto “Eat Your Wine!” You can buy their products online, or better yet stop in Blackmarket Bakery.

17941 Sky Park Circle in Irvine. 949.852.4609.
