Happy Holidays!


Happy Holidays – From my family to yours!

This past year has brought so much good into my life and I’m thankful for everyone (including my fans) who have shared it with me. Although I’m sad to let go of another wonderful year, 2012 has so much in store. My book “ICANMAKEUHOT“, will hit bookshelves in Spring 2012 and my philanthropic ballet flats, which will raise money for Breast Cancer research, will be available in-stores in Fall 2012. Also, look out for the January and February issues of AVENUE Magazine, where I have recently began working as the guest Editor. In between these new projects, there will be a couple more surprises, but I can’t reveal too much right now! Just keep your eyes open for another amazing adventure with my girls and I.

Thanks for all your love and support this year!

The New York Food Bank – The Spirit Of Giving

In the spirit of giving, I took my tween girls to Food Bank of New York City to help in the pantry and distribute food. It was amazing to share this experience with my girls. The enjoyed meeting the New Yorkers and helping them with their grocery list the Food Bank of New York City provides. I was grateful to help, and proud of my girls, too.

Happy Holidays to everyone!

Back In The Saddle

As the guest Editor of AVENUE Magazine for the January and February issue, I’m back to doing what I love: celebrating the mavericks. I don’t think of editing as picking and choosing, I see it as a way to show New Yorkers who’s doing what and why they are so highly regarded. I like talent. No smoke and mirrors, just raw talent. If you know someone who’s doing something unique and interesting, tell me. I want the world to see what great looks like. Its raw, real, filled with integrity, and definitely not packaged or imaged. Welcome to AVENUE Magazine.

Am New York – A perfect Pair: Fashion & Philanthropy

The one thing I’m reminded of throughout the holiday season is to stand up for those who are less fortunate.

Since the age of 15, I’ve volunteered at the Salvation Army, and today, I’m lucky enough to work with organizations like the Food Bank for New York City, Generosity Water and MSG’s Garden of Dreams Foundation.

Which is why, this holiday season, I find myself dressing in an understated yet chic way. I do this to show thanks to all of the local heroes who go beyond their comfort zone to do something special for those less fortunate. Like Angelina Jolie, I’ve recently opted for suits because they embody sophistication. I’m loving dark blue and white versions by Rogan, chic Chloe tops and ’50s-inspired Marc Jacobs sweaters.

For this year’s Holiday Rock & Roll Bash, hosted by James Dolan of Cablevision (amNewYork’s parent company), not only was $1.7 million raised for the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, but the party drew an amazing crowd with Jim at the helm of his band, JD & the Straight Shot. This week, I also took a group of children from the Garden of Dreams Foundation to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, and it was a delight to watch them enjoy the show.

And for those who love fashion and philanthropy (my favorite combo), I recently put a pair of worn-once Jimmy Choos up for auction on eBay, with 100% of the profits being donated to Generosity Water  to provide clean water wells in Ghana.
