I love any opportunity to try something new and fun. Grape stomping at the Pittsburgh Winery in the Strip? Count me in! In this week's show, Sara and I check out the upcoming Grape Stomp event, and we get into the spirit of things with glamorous retro hair and makeup from Izzazu Salon Spa and Serata.

And until next time, we'll be seeing you!

Beneath sunny skies on Saturday afternoon, Style Week Pittsburgh Day 4 (co-presented by the Pittsburgh Downtown Community Development Corp.) brought a variety of art and fashion vendors to Market Square.

Stylebook was on the scene taking in the sights. Below is a few of my favorite things (in no particular order) ...

The ladies wearing these vibrant colors by Younique (the same brand known for its 3D mascara) today drank coffee and bottled water without a single smudge! Learn more at www.YouniqueProducts.com.
