“Everything goes with anything,” seems to be the mission statement and mantra of style extraordinaire, Lori Goldstein. Lori is one of the most influential stylists in the fashion industry today, having worked with a number of iconic celebrities and photographers over the last twenty years. In fact, the last time I visited Lori in New York City she casually mentioned her upcoming shoot with Katy Perry.
To think… Katy Perry and I have something in common!! That’s pretty amazing don’t you think? Lori Goldstein balances a full plate of artistic, extravagant,... Continue Reading

Back in December I spent some time in New York City shooting a couple of fun things for Inspired Style. Since we wouldn’t have access to the “full salon” treatment we have here at Studio Park, we decided to call up some of our favorite New York beauty friends. One of those special ladies happened to be Emmy Award winning makeup artist, Eve Pearl.
While I was bummed she didn’t bring her Emmy for me to touch lol, she did bring her a whole lot of fabulous make up!
Not only is Eve a highly respected individual in the beauty industry, she’s also a really great ga... Continue Reading

This week’s episode of Project Runway All Stars is EXTRA special! Before our friend Lisa Robertson’s departure from QVC, she had the chance to guest judge an episode of Project Runway All Stars! In this episode, the designers were challenged to create a piece for the sophisticated, yet totally wearable, G.I.L.I collection to be sold on QVC. I know --- How cool?!?
Because we all got it and we all LOVE IT. I reached out you, to my loyal FB girls, to share photos of your favorite GILI item in your closet. I am never surprised by your amazing fashion sense, but I’ve got to tell ... Continue Reading

Hey Ladies!! WOW, what an exciting year. Today someone asked me to describe my year in 3 words and I was stumped. How could I possibly consolidate all of the amazing memories, events, and milestones we've experienced over the last year into just three words.
Well it was a question and every question deserves an answer... So this is what I came up with.
3 words I would use to describe 2014:
Life-Changing. Happy. Wonderful.
Because not everyone has a Facebook, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories throughout the year that I've posted on my page. Starting with the g... Continue Reading

First, I want to wish you a Happy Holiday? Don't you just love this time of the year? The other night me and Steve were thinking about how we never want the holidays to end. The home is cozier, the food is tastier, and the memories are that much sweeter. ANYWHO! The reason I am writing this blog (other than to chat with you!) is to thank you for all of the kind words you have shared about our Christmas special featured on the Q. We had such a blast shooting it and we were able take some really great professional photos (something I haven't been able to pull together just yet-- I p... Continue Reading

This episode of Project Runway All Stars is called “Match.com.” The designers are teaming up to create an elegant outfit for either a man or a woman getting ready for a romantic first date.
So how will I “Amy-ify” (yes, that is a verb I just made up) this week’s challenge? Funny you should ask! When hearing about this challenge I couldn’t help but laugh. The idea of wearing a polished and elegant outfit for a romantic first date is just so ironic when thinking about my “first date” with Steve.
Have I ever told you how Steve and I met? If so, be... Continue Reading

In the beginning of December I went up to NYC with our Inspired Style team to shoot a couple of fun segments coming up for our next season! (YAY, I CAN HARDLY WAIT!)
While I was there, I had the pleasure of hanging out with Erin, one of the fabulous makeup artists from tarte! She prepped me for a full day of shooting and I asked her to share exactly what she used on me so that I could then share with you!
So here is the exact formula on how to create a camera ready look for your upcoming holiday parties:
1. Start with tarte's Flawless Primer
2. Apply the CC-brightener under ... Continue Reading

Cookies, cakes, brownies, tarts, YOU NAME IT and I am all ears. While my sweet tooth is hard to tame all year around, it gets a mind of its own around the holidays. This is the time of the year when I surrender the will power and splurge on sweets.
This year the QVC hosts are having a “virtual” cookie exchange where we can swap recipes and share them with you along the way. Shout out to Sandra Bennett for nominating me next on the list of cookie recipes… Now… I really mean it when I say you can’t judge these cookies by the way they look. They are dark (from the...

What does everyone want to wear to Thanksgiving dinner…. Sweatpants or perhaps anything with an extremely elastic waistband! But since so many of us would never, I decided to put together a fashion guide for Turkey Day! Thanksgiving is the kickoff for holiday fashion, but it’s also really the last hoorah, for all of our fall favorites. This is the time to go big on the cozy sweaters, warm fall tones, and the latest trends you saw this season – plaids, fringe, and boyfriend style (just to name a few). Here are some of my rules for picking out your Thanksgiving outfit:1. ... Continue Reading
