When I first learned about WELL WITHIN skincare, I was impressed, simply because it was so clean. Then, I had the pleasure of meeting Co-founders, Lynne Florio and Renee Tavoularis, and fell in love with their mission. As beauty industry veterans (they both worked for La Prairie for over 20 years), their wellness journeys lead them to take a leap of faith and run with a vision. As an entrepreneur myself, I understand what it takes to bring a passion to life. Here, Lynne (LF) and Renee (RT) talk about starting the company, the best advice they've ever gotten and their definitions of beauty.
I love having the ability to interview people who inspire me. Today, I'm excited to share my latest with Maria Menounos, host of E! News and SIRIUS XM’s “Conversations with Maria Menounos." From her impressive hosting career to fit bod, she's someone I've always admired. Here, she talks about her new partnership with Rally Health, her eating and workout habits (you know you're dying to know) and the business advice from her husband that's kept her going.
I recently became familiar with the work of Sophia Gushee and instantly wanted to know more about her. As a healthy living expert, she helps people detox their homes! Cool, right? In her new book, The A to Z of D-Toxing, she proves that a healthy lifestyle goes beyond eating right and exercising. Here, she talks detoxing steps, her favorite clean beauty buys and how toxic exposure in the home can lead to hormone disruption.
When I picked up Kathryn Budig's new book, Aim True, I immediately wanted to be friends with her. As a yoga teacher and author, she's taking the wellness scene by storm by inspiring her followers to be honest with themselves and live a life of fulfillment by "nourishing their spirit." Kathryn recently partnered with Vapour Organic, to create a signature multi-use product. Here' she talks about what drew her to yoga, her favorite beauty buys and favorite LA hot spots.
I first met Chrissy Carter at a YogaWorks teacher training information night back in the fall and knew from her energy and passion for the craft, that I had to learn from her. Now, a graduate of the intensive teaching program she lead in January (see post), I can tell you that she truly is a beautiful soul. As someone who inspires and mentors me, I'm excited to introduce you her.
Ten years ago, I sat in Harry Josh's chair at the Gansevoort Hotel in the Meat Packing District and had the please having him styling my hair right before he had to get Lindsay Lohan ready for a party in the room next door. I'll never forget how my hair looked when he was done as the wave pattern was one I'd never be able to create myself and it was the first time a celeb stylist ever touched my hair. Since, I've worked with him and watched his career flourish. As someone in the industry that I truly admire, I'm excited to share more so you too, can get to know the man behind Giselle Bundchen's bombshell waves.
Interviewing people is one of my favorite things about being a journalist. I love giving people a platform to share their expertise and messages. Recently, I interviewed Gabby Bernstein, my idol and as a fellow 'spirit junkie,' it's safe to say, mentor. If you follow my work, then you already know that meeting Gabby about two years ago over breakfast changed my life and sparked a personal spiritual journey. Here, she shares her message.
