  11. It’s up!  And I couldn’t be more excited about Cosmo Body’s new site which I’m part of.  The site just launched today, the body focused platform allows you to take part in some new-style, engaging work-outs at home, and if you’re like me and don’t like group exercise this is the jam.  It also has yoga, zen focused meditation, sex advise, cool work-out gear on the market and loads of other nuggets to empower.  I’ll have healthy-ish recipes to go along with any fit focused lifestyle.

    The first of 2o vids in my video-column series is now up… get inspired to make haute midday snacks in salty or sweet combos.  Stash them in your desk drawer for when you need that pick me up because empowered women need beautiful snacks. 

    All videos shot by Tara Sgroi :)

    Head here to get the goods…


  12. Sous Style + me = hearts

    Get the full love affair here…

  13. When I was approached with the potential of doing a beauty/food story for the Queen Mother of beauty Estée Lauder, I knew it had to be decadent and glamourous.  Estée Lauder created an empire by empowering woman with the simple approach that every woman is beautiful, that with the knowledge that your skin requires a certain set of skin care and colors appropriate for your make up then you will undoubtedly be comfortable in your skin.  

    Link to The Estée Edit, the new editorial venue on their site and watch the video by Tara Sgroi of me making chocolate covered marshmallows, Estée Lauder’s favorite sweet treat and read the accompanying beauty story written by another of my heros Fiorella Valdesolo.  Music by Kudu, one of my all time favorite groups.

  15. I forever run the risk of singing the praises of dynamic duo Gentl and Hyers.  This master photog team deserves a whole essay about them, they are out of this atmosphere brilliant and talented but its how they are so down to earth and ever loving that makes them true gifts to all who know them.  Working on this Kinfolk shoot with them was our first real job together and I’ll forever cherish these photos.
