WEST THIRD STREET—We know our readers are fabulous, hawt, talented, brilliant women (and dudes), but still we get that you probably have days when you just want to change your entire life. Plan on being at EM & Co on Thursday night for an event that could help you change everything, starting with your attitude. Get some life coaching, fashion help from Racked friend Kallah Maguire (a.k.a the Emerald Scarab), hair and makeup makeovers from Paint Shop Beverly Hills?and you'll be plied with cocktails, appetizers, and giftbags. The event is from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm. RSVP here. 7940 West 3rd Street [Racked Inbox]
ROBERTSON BLVD—Kiehl's is holding a pet adoption this weekend, but we wanted to give you a head's up so you can use the next two days to pet-proof your pad. If you adopt a pet, you're getting more than a cuddly friend for life: Each customer who adopts leaves with a Kiehl’s gift box. Kiehl’s customers are invited to donate to Voice For The Animals Foundation, a Santa Monica-based animal advocacy organization. (And you'll get a gift, so it's a total win/win). The event is Saturday, from noon to 3pm. 100 North Robertson Blvd. (310-860-0028) [Racked Inbox]
