@Miu Miu

 Ever since I came across a blog post in The Sartorialist asking Photographer, Camilla Alibrandi, if by wearing a backless dress while shooting a men's show makes her feel more powerful...(???). Her answer made me feel like she must have been the coolest person in the room. 
"It makes me feel safe and secure to think others may understand me better through the image I put forth."
I was all smiles when Camilla gave me permission to post about her style on my blog. I feel the photos speak for themselves. It's not so much "what" she wears that I admire so much, but how she wears it. She seems to wear a backless dress with the same comfort and confidence as if it were equivalent to a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. I find her very inspiring. I would forever like to channel my inner "Camilla" and express that sense of confidence in my own personal way :) ....xoxo

This was our segue into the Luxury Resort and Spa market and it was such a great experience. Thanks to CEO & Founder of Live Love Spa, Lisa Michaelis, and  VP of Business Solutions, Tracie Wertz, along with the entire Live Love Spa team for putting on a launch event for spa executives that exceeded everyone's expectations. 

My favorite part: Meeting the other vendors and all of the amazing guests in a relaxed, spa-day setting at a luxury resort...not a bad way to get work done, right? :)

The next Live Love Spa event will be held in Vegas at the end of March. Please visit www.livelovespa.com.

Designer Abigail Ahern's London Home

I've always been fascinated by how creative people live....especially those who are known for their imaginative style and impeccable but quirky sense of taste, like London-based Interior and Product Designer, Abigail Ahern. I was excited to come across a photo editorial of her in her London home by The Selby. She seems to seamlessly know how to mix different styles and eras that would work in the city, suburbs, or the country. I love how her style reflects how she doesn't take herself too seriously. It's no wonder she's so highly sought after for her expertise. To see more of her work visit www.atelierabigailahern.com.

Bono and Ali Hewson's Label: Edun 2012

Edun Spring 2012 Campaign
 Photographer: Ryan McGinley

Ryan McGinley shot the Spring 2012 Campaign for the famous eco-friendly label, Edun. The beautiful species of African butterflies were used to promote awareness and trade with Africa. Not a coincidence, I suppose, to see it remain in line with Bono's philanthropic work with Live 8. The campaign is set to be released in March to magazines.
