Book Club

Since as long as I can remember I have been a member of the Oprah Book Club. I love when the new book is announced and look forward to diving in! Since I can remember, my Mom has been involved in a book club and always has awesome suggestions for me to read. Summertime is the best time of year to sit back, relax, curl up on the beach and get transported away into another land while reading! Reese Witherspoon (Hello Sunshine) and Emma Roberts (Belletrist) have also started book clubs and they are fabulous!  Here are some of the books that I recently read and just couldn’t put down!

Paris is Calling

Paris was calling! So, of course, I answered and bought a round trip plane ticket from NYC to Paris! In my early twenties I lived in Paris for about three years while modeling across Europe. I have such beautiful and fond memories of my time there and I have been itching to go back ever since. But as we all know, life just gets in the way and I hadn’t been able to make it back until recently.

I decided to venture back to Paris on a girls trip with the purpose of rediscovering the city in a whole different light. There is nothing like springtime in Paris and I was so excited to revisit my old neighborhood and retrace my 20yr old footsteps. Continue Reading

Mother’s Day Gift Guide- Dot Luxury

 

Mother’s day is that wonderful day that falls right after spring has shown its’ vibrant colors. We are all in a fantastic mood, ready for summer, our spring-cleaning is done and we feel fresh and rejuvenated. Overall, it’s just a fabulous time of year (and day) to honor the woman who gave you life! Whether she is by your side, across the country or looking down on you from above, she is with you on this special day. I have to admit that before becoming a mother, I didn’t really understand the significance behind Mother’s Day. Of course I knew how much I loved my Mom and the time we spent together but when I was younger, Mother’s Day meant flowers and a card. Today it means so much more and I now realize the sentimental meaning behind this special day. I wrote an article with my favorite gifts for a successful Mother’s Day! Read the full article on Dot Luxury!
