Behind the Scenes with Olive Oyl at Licensing Expo 2013

This week, I had the pleasure of joining King Features at Licensing Expo 2013 in Las Vegas. There, I got to see world-renowned actress, fashion icon and entrepreneur, Gwyneth Paltrow, as well as celebrity trainer and innovative fitness pioneer Tracy Anderson, when the positively radiant Gwyneth gave this year’s keynote address titled “Brands on the Brink of Global Expansion.”

Here I am larger than life! My sincere apologies for the over-lit photo. Why is it that you can never find a good Lighting Director when you need one?

Living the Suite Life at the Carlton Hotel

Since I moved to New York, I have made my home away from home at the Carlton Hotel. It’s been my dream palace for the past few months. It is where I work, play, eat and live life to the fullest! Since moving into the Broadway Diva Suite (how appropriate, I know!), I have come to rely on the professional expertise of Mr. Carlton, the hotel’s butler, concierge, host, manager…and my new best friend. He knows New York City like the back of his hand. In fact, when I ask him a question, he literally says, “Talk to my hand!” I honestly don’t know what that’s all about, but he really has been a gem to me. I wanted to publicly thank him for the kindness he has shown to me as I adapt to life in the big, bright city and introduce him to all my online friends. Without further adieu, meet Carlton!
