A lot has changed since 2013, except consumer rights. Get to know yours—it could be crucial this holiday season!
In March of 2016 I had the insanely awesome opportunity to address the esteemed members of the Women's Jewelry Association's "In the Know" at their annual meeting. In my keynote speech, I discussed the state of the economy when it comes to making luxury purchases. Check out my predictions.
I live on the island of Manhattan, but that doesn't mean I harbor a secret love for Williamsburg, Brooklyn. YES it's hipster haven, and most of my friends who live there are parents with 2.5 kids but new, cute restaurants sprouting up every 3 seconds, I make a trip there every weekend. Check it:
Actually, no there aren't any guitars involved or The Clash, but the information is still valid. In this #TBT to 2013, I talk about what happens when your packages aren't delivered on time. Did you know it is a federal mandate that if a USPS, UPS or Fed Ex specify an arrival date and it DOESN'T get to it's destination on time, you can ask for your money back? Yep.

Honest hour: The month of September was horrible for me. Not sure if it was mercury in retrograde (or what that means), an overwhelming sense of being 10 steps behind on literally everything, or if my beloved Ferocious the cat was diagnosted with a terminal illness. One highlight: #NYFW SS17 shows and presentations. The week is always hectic, but it reminded me what I do what I do in the first place: this stuff is dope.
Last weekend, we all braced ourselves for the impact of Hermine—an impact that turned out to be, well, beautiful skies and incredible weather here in New York! Before it hit, I was invited to Fox News to discuss the potential economic impact the storm would have on Labor Day Weekend.

On the flip side, in regions around Florida, companies like Home Depot and grocery stores would experience a boom of spending by people looking to batten down the hatches.
When you have to do your own makeup because the KNME studios in Albuquerque doesn't have it's own hair and makeup crew. All good, I learned from the best (shout out to Today Show, MSNBC and Fox News makeup artists/geniuses).
It's the freakin' weekend, baby I'm about to have me some fun!
Fun fact: The best time to purchase a refridgerator AND office supplies are in May. Want to know why? Check out the segment below!
Right before we took the stage, we got... stage direction.
A week after I got married in October, I went to Germany to tape a show called Hiring America. This show focusing on getting Veterans jobs as they transition out of the military. I learned a lot that week- mostly how much the amazing women and men who serve our country sacrifice for our freedom. I saw it first hand and was in awe.
My dear friend throws the most incredible Gala for her family's foundation, the Desai Foundation. The organization funds educational programs in India, as well as cultural events in the Boston area. Was so thrilled to be a part of it!
