This week, I sat down with the delightful Valerie Star, who is a makeup artist extraordinaire. We met during Fashion Week at Caravan Stylist Studio, located in the Carlton hotel in New York City. She is like a magician with her mascara wand, so I naturally had to ask her for the 411 on beauty! I took plenty of notes because Ms. Star had plenty of sage advice to give. I’ll be sharing all her best tips in the weeks to come, so please stop by and feel free to post any questions you may have for her in the Comments section.
Hello, my lovelies! Do you believe that dreams can come true? I most certainly do! In fact, one of my earliest recollections is when Popeye helped to fulfill one of mine. We were babies back then — literally! I had never seen the sea before, so Baby Popeye decided to prepare a big surprise for me. I don’t want to spoil all the fun by giving away too many details. But once you read this dreamy tale, you’ll see why I fell in love with him! To get the full story, you’ll have to enter our cool giveaway for a chance to be among the first to get the brand-new Baby Popeye eBook* from PlayTales.
For the past several weeks, I have been talking to Marci Zaroff about yoga. Since this conversation, my yoga routine and philosophy toward living green and clean has blossomed like a spring flower. I have more energy, less stress and an overall sense of calm and promise about my future has taken root in my everyday life.
Without further delay, I would like to share the yoga pose that I have been practicing this week and share snippets from the glorious conversation I had with Marci.
For those of you who are just getting to know me, I am an avid traveler who has been all around the world. From 2011 to 2012, I lived in California but I recently moved to New York City. During New York Fashion Week, I had the pleasure of meeting New York-based designer Denise Gertmenian. I discovered that she has California roots and now lives in New York too. We had a delightful conversation about the differences between living on both coasts, and I thought I would share her thoughts on West Coast vs. East Coast fashion styles. She was a breath of fresh air, and dare I say, a “rae” of light in New York’s fashion world!
