Mario, Avery and I all went to Newport Rhode Island for a week-long family vacation recently.
I had never been to Newport before and didn’t know what to expect. Upon arriving we were all staggered by the remarkable beauty and rich history of the town!
We joined my great friend and her family on her 150ft yacht for our 6 day trip. We were docked at 41N, which has a great hotel and restaurants inside and out. The outside restaurant played fabulous music and had an incredible almost life-size chess set which Avery and Mario enjoyed.
The best experience for us was doing the Cliff Walk. In fact it was so much fun we did it twice! We would start out on the very top by the ocean and huge cliffs, which was actually similar to hiking in Aspen. The views were so spectacular and so were the homes!!
We had the opportunity to tour a local landmark – The breathtaking Breaker’s Mansion. Would you believe i was still furnished in the same manner as the 1800’s when the Vanderbilt family resided there?
I have never seen such opulence and decor. The house was larger than life with gilding and rooms upon rooms. Personally I would have been nervous to ever sit on a chair if I lived there!!
We also got the chance to play tennis twice at the Tennis Hall of Fame. They have beautiful grass courts. Mario and I played against Avery and a pro which was so much fun and so different from playing on clay.
We really enjoyed being on the water. Avery would water ski and do wave boarding and we all went jet skiing. We would take the boat out for short day trips as the water was rough and even though one day it rained we still had the time of our lives!
Oh and did I mention the food on the yacht?!! The food the chef would prepare for us was so amazing that we only dined out twice locally! But we enjoyed our visits to the town because everyone was so nice and the stores and restaurants were all fabulous.
There’s nothing like eating el fresco and watching the sunset with family and great friends.
It was really one of our best vacations ever!!
p.s. – I will be posting many more pics from my trip and other summer events to my Facebook Fan page in the upcoming weeks. Become a member so you can view them!!

We are in Zambia at camp Toka Leya. Check out these amazing photos of where I am staying. The Wilderness Safaris and &Beyond camps have been nothing short of phenomenal!! I feel so lucky to be here! I saw some amazing landscapes and experienced nature like you only see in the movies.
It is truly a blessing to experience ALL sides of Africa. It is a wonderful country and the girls and I are getting the opportunity to do and see things that we could have only dreamt of, including the chance to visit with persons/communities who’s lives have been touched by The Africa Foundation.
Please check back tomorrow for more photos and information!

My dear friend Nina Wexler started this collection of these super cute fingerless gloves to benefit breast cancer. Check out this article about her and Free Fingers on Styelist.com by clicking the image below. The part about her son writing the song put a tear in my eye!

I am so happy to have started this blog so I have a place to connect with my fans and discuss the on-goings of my business and the fun publicity I receive. But most importantly, I really like that I have a place to talk about something very close to my heart.
Africa Foundation facilitates the empowerment and development of people living in or adjacent to protected areas in Africa, by forging unique partnerships between conservation initiatives and communities. The Foundation funds projects based on the needs within the communities surrounding conservation areas, specifically in the following three areas:
- Education – school improvement, bursary schemes, conservation lessons
- Healthcare – primary healthcare centres, HIV/AIDs awareness programmes, access to water, sanitation
- Income Generating Activities – agricultural projects, skills centres, entrepreneurial support
A key Africa Foundation aim is to help break the cycle of poverty. They therefore seek to support projects that combine to provide a ‘conveyor belt’ of resources from pre-natal care, right the way through to university bursaries.
This May I am a part of a group of women on a trip to South AFrica, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia to participate in extremely vital community development projects involving education, medical and health care improvements in rural Africa. The major focus of the trip is to expose us to the work of Africa Foundation and to continue to the work of the foundation. Our group will be touring the creche, primary and high schools; visiting health care clinics and learning about HIV/AIDs initiatives. Africa Foundation’s work involves communities that border on conservation areas. A special thank you to Wilderness Safaris and &Beyond for making all of this possible!!

I am always being asked about what my eating habits are since I started “renewing” myself. I thought this was a great piece in Life & Style and I was really happy to get a 3 1/2 star rating!
Do you have any tips for me? I’d love to hear from you!
Also – I wanted to let everyone know since kicking coffee out of my diet I have been drinking a lot of green tea and recently I found THE BEST Green Tea EVER! My friends Shane and Joel from Talbott Teas gave me a sampler of their Green Tea Heaven and honestly it’s the best tea I’ve ever had. It has all-natural ingredients like raspberry, strawberry and rhubarb which bring out the incredible flavor of the Japanese Sencha green tea and then on top of that there are more blueberries – And I love blueberries for the taste and how they are so antioxidant-rich.
You have to try this http://www.TalbottTeas.com and let me know what you think!
All my best to a happy and healthy you!
