Friday Rewind: The Jet-Set Family Week in Review

I can’t believe it’s time for Friday Rewind here at The Jet Set Family all over again. Ready to recap? As warned, we were heavy on Hawaii this week, but what else did you expect after such a wonderful family vacation at Disney Aulani? I tried to stick to the basics, and highlighted our meals, but you know darn well I have many more posts coming up about the resort. 

And here is all the other awesome stuff that happened this week!

Hugs & passports,

Happy Hour at The ‘Olelo Room



Andrea of SavvySassyMoms and I had a really wonderful time Tuesday night at Oscar de la Renta on Melrose Place to celebrate Kelly Florio Kasouf’s Super Adventures of Sophie and the City series. The turnout was fabulous with guests like our fave Julie Bowen, Tiffani Theissen, and Nia Vardalos, there was an incredible balloon artist, and we had the chance to mix, mingle and shop in support of the charity, BabyBuggy. I can’t stop thinking of which dress would be the most perfect for Jet Set Tot’s upcoming Kindergarten promotion. Le. Sigh. [More on this fab event next week!]

BLACK CELEBRATION. Tonight I will be going to a very special invite-only KROQ sponsored show by the one and only DEPECHE MODE! This is not only a dream come true, but it is at the legendary Troubadour in West Hollywood. Anyone who is even vaguely familiar with the venue knows what a huge deal this is because it only holds 400 people. This is the smallest venue that Depeche Mode has ever played in Los Angeles. And I / Me / Moi will be there.

♫ Don’t act like you didn’t know what this week’s MIX TAPE was going to be!  We’re going to see Dave Gahan tomorrow night, not ABBA!  ♫ MIX TAPE | Depeche Mode

Mom2.0 Summit is next week! This is the first time I will be attending #Mom2Summit and I was not sure what to expect, but as I study the speakers and panelists, and find out I will be amongst the most talented writers, and bloggers I’ve come to respect over the last few years, I’m starting to realize how important this weekend really is. Please take a moment to check out my Mom2.013 Attendee “introduction” pin on Pinterest and let’s be friends!

Sounds about right. I also love lunch on the patio of Chateau Marmont and Stella McCartney handbags.


Check out my latest post for Burke Williams Day Spa and Massage Center where I am a brand ambassador. I’ve learned the hard way this year how vital drinking water is to the appearance of our skin. My first reaction was to instantly think of how I needed to change-up my moisturizer, but then I was reminded that I have been slacking in the ’8 glasses a day’ department. #spon

Tweet of the week? I didn’t have the heart to reply that I named him ‘SUSHI’.

SUSHI 101 :: I stumbled upon this Los Angeles Magazine article and never realized there were so many sushi faux pas. So I had to share with you this gem by Tomoko Kurokawa:
