The following is a love letter to my favorite LA fashion…

Until then, I’ll be running around like a mad woman trying to tie up all loose ends, work and personal, before we head off, since this departure will kick off 8 weeks of travel for the…

Founder and CEO of Ringly, Christina Mercando d’Avignon, is leading the way in fashionable tech by creating smart jewelry and accessories.

Following the launch…
