Last night I attended a fashion show to benefit the Children’s Home Society at Touch Dolls boutique in (MiMo neighborhood) Miami. My gorgeous friend Constances Jones of WPLG was the host for the evening… and the owner of Touch Dolls was showing off her new Deliano designs collection!
Here are a couple more pics from the event of me and the girls hanging out!

A couple of my friends made the 2013 list for OPRAH’S FAVORITE THINGS! How exciting is that? I am so proud to say I know these people and it’s wonderful to see their grind and hard work getting some much-deserved attention after some years of keeping with it.
So, first up is Logan Real. He is a Miami-native that I met while doing a custom shoe story for Deco Drive. These days he is doing “big things” working with designers like Rebecca Minkoff adding his personal touch to her beautiful bags, with hand-painted custom monograms! Now, Oprah gives him the shout out for his signature on Monogram Gloves!
Second is Susan Hanover Designs. Oprah chose her stone drop earrings to feature on the list! I also met Susan years ago while pitching story ideas and she is a sweetheart! I’m very excited for both my friends… On that note, is it really time for HOLIDAY SHOPPING!?!?!
Fall is here and the NFL football season is in full swing, MLB playoffs are upon us and another NBA season is just around the corner. So if you’re looking to get some gear that’s not your typical “sports” t-shirts and sayings, check out www.tonypsd.bigcartel.com
I’m working with Tony on some new graphics for my newest passion project – look out for that, but in the meantime I wanted to share some of his fun designs reppin’ the Bay! 🙂 I know Oakland A’s fans (old and new) need some fresh gear for the playoffs & SF Giants fans represent for the Sucka Free regardless.
And — some examples of the designs for the Raider Nation and 49er Faithful…
Let’s not forget the Golden State Warriors who are poised for another incredible season or the San Jose Sharks!!
I made my NFL Network debut yesterday on their morning show, “NFL AM,” with a countdown style segment on NFL’s Pop Culture Crossovers. It was a fun segment and I got plenty of great feedback, so hopefully I’ll be bringing more “pop culture” to the show very soon!
Check out my 5 for the week…. From Colin Kaepernick’s kicks to Kurt Warner’s life story.
At any rate, here’s my clip from the show…press play!
And — thanks to Touch Dolls boutique for helping me select my yellow dress for the segment!
The 2012 Olympics kick off today in London with the opening ceremonies…I will definitely be tuned in. I’m very excited to watch the games, and I feel like I was just in London… 🙂 Actually, I “crossed the pond” last October to watch the NFL game being played there at Wembley, which was a great time. Every 4 years I say I’m going to attend the next Olypmics…I’m missing out on London, but BRAZIL is the summer games next stop, I may really need to make that happen!! hehe
Team USA Basketball is on my MUST SEE list for this years Olympics, always great to see guys from the different NBA teams come together for some international play! Also I read a stat this morning that this year, a record 38 current NBA players will be playing in the summer games, very cool. Spain and Argentina may be the two teams giving the USA the biggest challenge…
As a little girl, I loved watching women’s gymnastics – I think it was the whole “Nadia” story…anyway, gymnastics was my thing in elementary, the nuns would always get mad at me for cartwheeling all around the playground!! Well, this year the USA women are favored for the team GOLD, so I’ll be cheering them on too!!
Track and field events are also always exciting to watch…especially the sprints, hurdles and relays!! Nike will have them sporting these flashy RED numbers. BTW… in 2008, I actually sampled some of the Olympic fashion…you can watch the flashback below –
And — of course I can’t leave out Michael Phelps…all eyes will surely be on him for swimming events as he goes for the gold AND has his sights set on amassing the most Olympic medals EVER! Good luck to him.
