Stars on Ice :: The Skating Show You Have to See

It may come as no surprise Johnny and I are huge figure skating fans. After all, my first real international trip was the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea! I’m excited to share in addition to a lot of work meetings, Johnny and I are heading to New York City to watch Stars on Ice! The United States tour kicks off tonight in Ft. Meyers, Florida and we are very excited to watch the second stop in Long Island. It’s crazy how life works, sometimes. I’ve had a NY trip planned to meet with brands about projects I’m working on. Fortunately, the Stars on Ice tour happens to be in New York the same weekend! To say we are ecstatic would be an understatement.

Four Ways to To Be More Confident

Confidence is key. We’ve heard these saying many times before. “Oh, just be confident and it’ll work out.” Or perhaps something like, “My confidence got me through it.” But where does that confidence come from? How do we get it? This might come as a surprise but I used to be an incredibly shy young girl. But if I did something, I was confident in my abilities. I want to share four ways to be more confident and I hope this helps you hold your head up high and put some pep in your step. Some of these came to me from more than a decade of figure skating, my time competing in pageants and of course, the time I’ve been working as an adult. I’m still young and have a lot to learn but I hope these will help you.

The Five Books Everyone Should Read

“The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.” -Mark TwainGrowing up, I was a huge bookworm. My family instilled the love and power of reading in me since I was a child. Going to the library was equivalent to getting an ice cream cone for me! I would speed through the library’s summer reading list for my age or grade and enjoy every moment. That love grew every year and as an adult I still love to read. Nowadays, I do a lot of audiobooks just so I can get things done around the house or get through a book when I’m driving. There are countless books out there but I want to recommend five books every woman should read. Not only will these inspire you, but help you grow, become a better person and lead you down a path toward success. Some are more practical and full of knowledge you can apply. Some will take you to another world and get your creative juices flowing.

Designing A Top for Gibson x International Women’s Day Collection

Happy FriYay! I have some huge news to share with y’all and I’m beyond excited! A dream of mine for years is coming true: designing a top for Gibson x International Women’s Day collection! The collection launches March 8 on International Women’s Day and is available at Nordstrom. The top I’m designing is versatile so it’ll be great for both work and the weekend. I can easily see myself restyling it multiple times for different settings and I know you will, too! It comes in two colors and I can’t wait to share a sneak peek with you once the final samples are complete! Being able to share the process with y’all is very exciting and I can’t wait to share what’s next. One reason I love the top I’m designing in particular is its versatility. You’ll be flattering on so many different women. Plus, Gibson offers sizes XXS Petite to XXXL.
