About This Week’s Prize Package
With a Sunset Strip address, there can be a lot of pressure to measure up to the expected standards of excitement, glamour, and youth. Luckily, the Mondrian hotel achieves this delicate balance. Upon entering the hotel’s signature thirty-foot mahogany doors, you’ll discover warm yellows and creamy whites, reminiscent of a summer day. As you progress into the hotel, day becomes night and deep blues and purples, a Lucite indoor swing and a mushroom-inspired concierge center will make you feel like a real-life Alice in Wonderland. Visit the 24-hour fitness center to stay in shape after a delicious meal at Asia de Cuba, Mondrian’s innovative Asian-Cuban fusion restaurant, complete with oversized terra cotta pots. Sip on a drink at ADCB in the lobby, or venture outside to Skybar, one of West Hollywood’s most luxurious and exclusive lounges. The bar overlooks the pool and outdoor living room, and you won’t be able to get over the amazing views of the Los Angeles skyline.
With such legendary rock’n’roll clientele as Cher, Prince, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Tina Turner, Patti Smith and the B-52’s, along with celebrity fans Angelina Jolie, Heidi Klum and Whoopi Goldberg, Lady “J” Gerard is a true rebel with a cause. Her designs seamlessly mix rock’n’roll with a flower-child mentality. All of the items in Lady “J’s” Peace Gallery line come with an original peace sign, and her Melrose store window advertises her favorite quote: “Don’t ever waste your days not doing what you dream to do.” You’ll discover t-shirts, jeans, couture gowns, art, furniture and home accessories and jewelry, all designed with the purpose of increasing global peace. And you’ll definitely feel at peace with the price- a $100 gift card.
Recently named one of the top 40 haircolorists in 2012 by BE! Beauty Entertainment Magazine, Marco Pelusi has truly earned his reputation of haircolorist to the stars. After training in his family’s upscale East Coast chain of salons and working as a top educator in Milan, you can be sure that Pelusi’s knowledge and talent will make you (or at least your hair) the talk of the town. If you’re this week’s lucky winner, you’ll receive a $100 gift card to Marco Pelusi Hair Studio, redeemable on any service, located in the trendy Avenues of Arts, Fashion and Design district of West Hollywood.
You may know Makeup Mandy as the “Eyelash Bar to the Stars,” but the Melrose salon also offers many other services as well. With your $100 gift card, you can choose from such luxurious services as eyelash extensions (including from owner Amanda Jacobellis’ innovative LAshX Mink or synthetic lines), red carpet prep, eyebrow threading, waxing, makeup, hair coloring and styling, tanning, facials and more. Amanda’s celebrity clientele include such big names as Eva Longoria, Ke$ha, Stacy Keibler, Leighton Meester and Adrien Brody. Make an appointment before a big party, wedding, or red carpet appearance, or if you just want to be pampered like a star!
