What Do the New Kids on the Block, Beauty Secrets Shared On National TV and the Real Housewives of OC Have in Common? They are All Part of My Very Busy Week Last Week!
The week started off with a segment at one of my favorite places to be – NBC’s Today Show, where I shared ways to refresh your spring beauty routine in 2 minutes or less! Much to my glee, the New Kids on the Block were also appearing on the show that day! Call me a dork, but I’m a HUGE fan and believe it or not, have seen them in concert SEVEN times! I don’t typically get star-struck as I’m pretty lucky to have met an amazing array of people, but this time I think I may have been, just a little bit!!! We had some fun convo backstage in the green room and the guys were truly sweethearts! And in case you’re wondering, I was a Joey girl ☺ Somehow they still manage to bring out that pimpley-faced, curly haired, braces wearing, chubby 12 year old girl in me! :-p
Following The Today Show, I received a phone call from Slade Smiley and Gretchen Rossi of Bravo’s Real Housewives of OC, whom I know through my friend and stylist Nathan VanSchaik. Gretchen was in desperate need of a dress for Bravo’s big up-fronts celebration, so Nathan and I came up with a fabulous Sue Wong number that was sure to land her on the Best Dressed list! I had just worn Sue Wong for the Today Show spot and got rave reviews on it – her stuff truly is amazing!
Following her big night, we went out to lunch at the Paramount Hotel in New York City, and were spotted by the paparazzi. I was sporting a graphic print t-shirt dress from Vivienne Tam’s spring 2013 collection, with Pretty Polly garter-belt style tights. Here are some fun pics from that afternoon, courtesy of Getty Images!
The Paramount Hotel – this chic hotel conveniently located in Midtown Manhattan in the heart of Times Square – was really fab by the way. I loved the atmosphere and overall look, and the restaurant was delicious. We enjoyed tasting almost every small bite on the menu, plus some great salads and of course really fab bellini’s. Afterward, we hit up the hotel’s boutique and I got some cute items!
