What is Beauty?

One of the questions they asked for the interview was what do I think “beauty” is. I had to think about it for a second, but it comes down to this.

To me, beauty is about expressing your interior on the exterior. So whether it’s clothes, makeup, hair, your words, or your actions, beauty is ultimately about creativity and expressing your inner voice. That’s why fashion is so much fun. It’s an opportunity to show the world the essence of YOU.

The Nature of Energy

Calmer than You?

I’ve been thinking a lot about the nature of energy. There are different kinds. Calm energy. Hyper energy. Stressed energy. Aggressive energy. Lustful energy. I see a lot of people – friends, patients, people on the street – in NYC who have tons of energy, but they don’t have calm energy.

I also see a lot of people who have to exhaust and deplete themselves to find a sense of calm.

It’s so important to find something that energizes you AND makes you feel calm at the same time. For me it’s yoga, meditation and cooking. All three make me feel alive, without revving me up into a state of stress.

Where do you find your calm energy? If you’re not sure, explore. It’s so important for your body, your mind, and your health.
