Hello again everyone! I wanted to share some photos of a very special weekend I had. Mario and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary! I did not have to think twice at where I wanted to spend the weekend with my husband. We booked a stunning suite at the Pierre Hotel in New York City.   Some of you may remember this as the very same hotel where we renewed our vows last year.


The staff at the Pierre was as welcoming as ever leaving a cute anniversary dessert and bottle of champagne to welcome us.



We enjoyed brunches, couples massages, and alone time on our private veranda! I could not have painted a more perfect weekend if I tried!




















Mario and I were asked by a brand new bride what our secrets to a good marriage are and I answered, “Trust, communication, and keeping the romance!”. Mario piped in with, “And not necessarily in that order!”. It was exactly what we had at the Pierre Hotel.

Always remember to set aside time to have special moments with your loved ones! Please share your own romantic stories as well!







Fashion Week is over and it was exhausting but incredible!!  I wanted to share my experience with you and show some photos from the crazy week! My first stop was the Rebecca Taylor show. I was so excited to get to go backstage and see all of the action prepping for the show! It was amazing to be able to see all of the designs and fabrics up close and personal.  There was organized chaos all around me and I took it all in! I even got to do a mini interview with the designer herselfhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4_-vefXfrI) ! The show was great!

My next stop was Pamella Roland who never disappoints! I admire and appreciate her fashions each and every season! It was then off to Zang Toi with my lovely daughter, Avery!  It was so much fun to get to experience fashion week with Avery.  We even went backstage and Avery interviewed Zang Toi himself! (http://www.teen.com/avery-singer-fashion-week/ ) My fellow cast mate, Jill, walked the runway and I was so proud of her and happy I was there to support her!

I then went to Sachika’s show, a part of Elle 360’s Fashion Week event.   My gold jewelry from my new line “Uptown Meets Downtown” was featured and it looked beautiful  (http://tinyurl.com/48qk4k2) ! The runway designs were very fun and funky with lots of feathers! After the finale, Kat Deluna came out and performed and she was amazing!!   I couldn’t help but dance in my seat!  Below is a photo of one of the Sachika models wearing my Eight Ring Necklace.  Also, there’s me standing with the twin designers, Ton-ya and To-tam!

My jewelry was also featured in the White Trash Beautiful by Nikki Lund and Richie Sambora show.  In this show, the black and white crystal jewelry was used from my new line and it worked perfectly (http://tinyurl.com/4k668au)! They used necklaces, earrings and rings and one of the necklaces was even featured on the finale dress! I was honored!  Here are some photos of the models wearing my pieces.

Besides these shows, I also was lucky enough to sit front row at Dennis Basso and Boy Meets Girl. Everyone did such spectacular shows this season! Here are some of the looks I sported throughout the week. I can’t wait for Fall!
