Filming From The Top


So, this is what it looks like. Lights, camera, and lots of action. Filming for  tv is so much fun especially when you get to talk about what you love. For this  show, ( to be mentioned soon) I was able to show how to decorate with what you  love, and how to make something inexpensive look priceless. My talking points: be a hoarder (collect what you love), change your apt/ house regularly, add paint, wallpaper, a new mirror to inspire yourself, and decorate with what you love. Show off your fav books and items, and NEVER be afraid to be proud of where you have been and what you’ve learned.

Stay tuned!

Terrific Tinys

I don’t care what anyone says about “Toddlers and Tiaras” .  These girls are cute, sweet, and having fun with the assets God gave them, and of course makeup enhancement. Don’t hate the player, hate the game. One little girl even gave me a bead from her hat as a “I like you” present. I went there to be the MC, and I left with seven friends who felt so good about themselves. I couldn’t have had more fun today.

Thank you Ciccabella for the opportunity to meet the girls and see your cozy cowgirl slippers.

Remembering 9/11 – 10th Anniversary


9/11 made a huge impact on me!  As a young mom of two babies, I was downtown in my apartment, blocks away from the Twin Towers. I took my daughter outside to walk the dogs and found us both confronted by people running from downtown covered in white. I told my daughter who was 2 at the time, that it was snow.

That night we had dinner in a neighborhood restaurant, as I had no kitchen at the time. We paid for the dinners of all the Firefighters who dined next to us. Some didn’t come back the next night, or the night after.

Thank you, New York City for the amazing work our Police and Firefighters performed then and continue to perform. My heart goes out to all the families who have suffered a loss due to 9/11.

I will not be tweeting on Twitter or posting on Facebook in rememberance of 9/11.

We all need to take a moment to reflect and be grateful for all we have everyday!

Labor Day “Give Day”


Happy Saturday, I took the girls to support my great friend Diana Di Menna who took a lemonade stand to a new level. This year, we sold cookies, lemonade, and designed t-shirts. It was a fun way to encourage my girls to help those who need help. The Robin Hood Foundation helps target poverty in NYC. I’ll cut tees and sell lemonade all day and night to support the children in NYC.

Thank you Nacho Figueras for being my supermodelpoloplayergiveman!

Happy Saturday. Love hard, give  harder!

Am New York : Kelly Killoren Bensimon Causes A Chic ‘Racquet’ At The Open

Hurricane Irene came and went, and so did my own hurricane of traveling — from Sag Harbor with two kids and three dogs, to Manhattan for a night, to Canyon Ranch in Lenox,Mass., and finally back to NYC this week.

That’s when I got a call: Hairstylist Julien Farel was once again having a salon at the U.S. Open. I definitely wanted to see Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer play tennis, but I also needed to meet the man who coifs their great-looking hair.

On the day I visited the Open, a car pulled up in front of my SoHo building to take me to Queens. Julien Farel himself — chicly dressed in a U.S. Open Polo shirt and equestrian-style pants — accompanied me on the ride. We chatted about the summer, his upcoming project (a secret wedding!) and, ofcourse, hair.

Farel, who has two salons in Manhattan,even gave me some tips for my dry hair,which oftengets blown out six times a week.

Another cool revelation: Farel said that even athletes are grooming- and beauty obsessed. I saw that for myself at the Open — everyone looked so good, on and off the court. Where was all the sweat, grime and grunting? I was impressed by all the neat short nails, cool haircuts and U.S. Open paraphernalia.

When I sat next to a player while getting my nails done at Farel’s salon, she had just finished working out in the gym, and she looked as though she had stepped right out of a Nike ad.

I, meanwhile, wore gold Prada shorts, J.Crew sandals,an easy top, a woven bag — which supports Wayuu Taya Charity — and Ray Ban sunglasses.

A few tips for hot Open attire: Sport a Lacoste or Polo shirt and a fun mini or hot shorts. Wear flats— it’s a sports match. Stay far away from fall colors and black — it’s too hot and you’ll fry like piece of bacon. Sport a cute Open baseball hat — guys like girls in baseball caps.

Keep your shoulders exposed but slather on the sunscreen. Channel a “hot athlete” — not a “fall fashion victim.”
