One of my favorite things about the warmer weather months are all of the events that surround them and the places they are held. Beach weddings, outdoor BBQ’s, family reunions in park settings – no matter which way you go, Mother Nature has set a perfect backdrop for all of our gatherings. I love entertaining outdoors and that’s why I was so excited to help host a tent party at the Radnor Hunt Races this year! This event brings thousands of people together to raise money for various charities, and in the process, you get to dress up, watch the races and enjo... Continue Reading

I love to eat! Even more so, I love to eat meals that look great and that are easy to make! When I started watching QVC, one of my early purchases was a set of Temptations bakeware, because I felt that I needed something to help my “OK” kitchen skills look like “great chef” accomplishments! For example, the picture below with Lisa Gleason and how a beautiful Temptations plate made a simple salad look delish!
I’d love to share some of my favorite recipes that I use for both entertaining and just any old Monday night!
What better place to start... Continue Reading

Of all things in life, there is nothing I can appreciate more than a good night’s rest! Since I started working at the Q, you can imagine that sleeping has become a true LUXURY. Every minute (actually every second) of sleep that I can get counts BIG TIME when your schedule is all over the place like mine!
Although I always thought that I was purchasing quality mattresses in the past, I have perpetually had sleep issues. Insomnia… Check! Tossing and turning… CHECK! Restless leg, knots in my shoulder; and even as early as my twenties, the ever so com... Continue Reading

After a looooooooong winter, I have decided that I am going to spend as much time outdoors as possible this spring and summer! I've been working on my deck and patio and can't wait to share it with you!! Here is a sneak peek of what I've done so far and how the addition of accent lighting can create an inviting atmosphere at night.
When using solar powered lights the possibilities are endless!! They are not only affordable, but now you can place lights in your deck planters so that you can enjoy the color and add a bit of drama at night!
I really love the starburst effect that thes... Continue Reading

I know what you’re thinking – “Lip Gloss can’t change your life!” – well stick around with me for the next minute or so and I’ll tell you just how impactful it can be!
About three years ago, I had the opportunity to participate in the first ever Beauty with Benefits event at QVC. The event brought together vendors, products and that night we raised money for an organization called Cancer and Careers. That night lip gloss….and a LOT of them…helped change the lives of women who were living and recovering from cancer.

Easter has such a special place in my heart. It has a religious meaning for me, and is also metaphorically a symbol of new life and new opportunities! Bunnies, chicks, eggs, and blossoms are the ways we see new life in nature this time of year, and it just so happens that they bring smiles to the faces of children and adults! So this year, when I decided to decorate my home for the Easter holiday, I was on a mission to incorporate all of the things that make me happy!! I took lots of photos and below are some of my tips on how to elevate your Easter table to a whole new... Continue Reading

I like winter…but after one too many snowfalls, I’m happy to say goodbye to it for about 9 months! :) For me, Spring is exciting because of nature’s vibrant colors, the sounds of birds chirping in the morning and all of the fresh flavors I want to taste in my food. Well, to get myself and some friends in the “spring” of things, I decided to host an easy, yet elegant, brunch this weekend and you’re invited to join!! This is a view of the finished table, with help from lovely product by Valerie Parr Hill, but keep reading to see how easily it all ... Continue Reading

Growing up in New York City, it has always been a dream of mine to attend New York Fashion Week!! It’s the time of year when all of the fashion trends are set, the color stories become apparent, and when all of the “fashionistas” strut their stuff to watch what’s coming down the runway! Well, I was STOKED to find out that I had a seat at the Dennis Basso Runway show!
Being that it was going to be a long day trip, and I wanted to take a lot of great pictures in crowded places, I knew I needed juice for my phone and something to help me take great photos. Tha... Continue Reading

As you may have guessed, I LOVE VALENTINE’S DAY ! The opportunity to tell people how much you love them….you get to wear red….and, yes, an excuse to eat tons of chocolate – could there be a better day??? Oh and lets not forget CUPID…
HUBBA HUBBA!! ;)

If you followed my Holiday Decorating Blogs, you’ll know that it was my first year of celebrating the holidays in an “all out” fashion!! From garland to glitter bows and ornaments, I wanted to bring it all into the house, and BOY DID I DO THAT!! It was fun, it was magical…and then came January 5th (I keep my tree up until my birthday) and all I wanted to do was get it all ooooouuuuut! But that same sparkly, beautiful glitter was now in my carpets and hardwoods, my throws, sofas and pillows – even the dogs were carrying it from room to room!
