Back to life. Back to reality. I find it crazy how one day I am in one part of the world and the next day I’m on the opposite side. The minute I arrived in Dubai last week, I knew it was going to be a trip of a lifetime. I mentioned in this morning’s newsletter that this trip was so memorable and for so many reasons. I was there for the FIRST Simply Stylist Dubai conference which gave me the opportunity to speak to a room filled with young women about my career in digital and even some personal …

1. Honesty is the best policy – I used to think telling a little white lie here and there was okay, but the older I’m getting the more I’ve learned that honesty is the best policy. I kept Steve a secret from my parents for years …

I just dropped Sweetie off at the vet and as ridiculous as this might sound – I am emotional about it. She’s getting spayed today and it’s a decision we’ve been dreading for months.

I realized there’s pros and cons to every decision in life. I did tons of research and called her breeder for advice, and finally came to the conclusion that we need to get her fixed. Our vet said that in Sweetie’s case it’s better to do it now at 7 months instead of waiting because she’s such a big girl and soon entering her heat phase. …

Kicking off Freebie Friday with love from NYFW! Yesterday was seriously one of those no-time-to-stop-and-chill days. It was so busy.. but busy is good, right? I had a couple of exciting press meetings (one at Glamour Mag’s offices!!!) which took up most of the afternoon. Stevie and I had about 30 minutes to shoot this outfit you’ll see below + grab a quick bite (which we ended up eating in our Uber LOL).

When we got back to the hotel, we both wanted to collapse from heat exhaustion, but there was no time for sleep. We had to change and …
