Olive Goils: Meet the Designers of stella valle Jewelry

As graduates of the United States Military Academy at West Point, Ashley Jung and Paige Dellavalle were educated in the value of sacrifice, dedication, tenacity and persistence. Related by blood and not afraid to break a sweat, long days and late nights are nothing new for these two sisters who dreamed of careers in fashion while growing up in a small country town in Ringoes, New Jersey. Their education and military training were put to good use when they hung up their combat fatigues and co-founded their jewelry line, stella valle, in 2009. This fashion-forward line of bold statement jewelry, with its strong lines and geometric metalwork, is inspired by and designed for strong, creative women who chart their own path, lead their own lives and create their own story.

Olive Loves: Kusmi Tea

My name is Olive and I am a tea snob. Since moving to New York, I have been burning the candle at both ends. Making your dreams come true in this town requires non-stop doing! Since this is truly the city that never sleeps, it is taking my sleep deprivation to an entirely different level. To combat fatigue, I cherish my morning cup of tea like an overboard non-swimmer clings to a life raft. Brewing a cup of tea and eagerly waiting as it steeps to delicious perfection is my non-negotiable start to every day.

Recently, I made a very serendipitous find while walking through The Plaza Hotel’s mouth-watering Food Hall at One West 59th Street in Manhattan. I discovered the Kusmi Tea retail store. Cue the soundtrack music from the choir of heavenly angels here!

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?
