The Age of Aquarius

I've always been drawn to astrology and am a firm believer that likeminded signs are not-coincidentally drawn to one another. The sun, moon, and stars were aligned in one unique way the date of my birth. To top it off, I was born on Valentine's Day...I am a true lover at heart.

Aquarians born on February 14 are high-strung, interesting people who possess analytical intelligence that allows them to tackle complex problems without losing sight of the practical side issues. Their verbal skills are considerable. They have an edgy charm that makes them irresistible.

People born on February 14 attract the spotlight. Friendship is easy for them, and so they may not work at it diligently. Romance is another area of life where they shine. They are more likely to fall passionately in love than others of their sign.

People born on February 14 are interested in careers that don't demand too much time and effort. Money is another matter. Even those who don't have financial resources behave as though they were born to the silk.

February 14 natives are not especially goal-oriented but do have a passion for pursuing their dreams. Their optimism makes them believe that anything worthwhile can -- and eventually will -- happen. If a cherished wish is not fulfilled, they refuse to look at it as a failure or setback; they find another dream to chase.

Music is the soundtrack to my life...

Hotel Costes compilations are the perfect background music to your next dinner party. The 11 album collection, released by the Paris based hotel are mixed with DJ Stephane Pompougnac's own music. Etage 3 is the 75 minute long downtempo/lounge album mixed by Stephane. The continuous mix takes the listener on a journey beginning with 007 movie singer Shirley Bassey passionately singing "Where Do I Begin." Sip the cuvee, swap stories of your latest dates, and meet new friends in the company of this international blend of musky lounge tracks.

I am a very stylish girl...

I got a job! Yes, my 3 month stay-cation is nearing an end. It feels great to return to work, but oh my, what am I going to wear? I was lucky enough to formerly work at a laid back LA ad agency where jeans were the daily uniform.

Now, I don't think that's going to quite cut it at this buttoned up Downtown LA firm. So, I look to Gwyneth Paltrow for some wardrobe updates. A crisp white blazer over a grey tank paired with a black pencil skirt over leggings and booties with a beautiful gold bracelet is my answer to buttoned up work wear. No stuffy black suits for me!
