Classic Black and White

More from the DC Goodwill Runway Show: Scene 3 is the sharp contrast of black and white.  This scene makes a bold statement and shows that the absence of color can still be just as fun and sexy as the vibrant reds and stunning neutrals I showed you in the other two scenes. As you can see below, the combination of black and white - or just black or just…

Neutrals Can Be Exciting, too!

Here is another collection from the DC Goodwill Fashion Show that surprised the audience with excitement from all three sides of the runway (and even from the balcony!), which just goes to show that wearing neutrals does not have to be boring.

Could You Use More Or Less White In Your Life?

My holiday stay at Myconian Luxury Villa Many people often think that white is the absence of color and can be boring.  But it is actually the opposite: white is the blending of all of the colors of the spectrum.  It represents a fresh start, a new beginning.  As a designer and an artist, I get excited when thinking of a blank white canvas.  To me, it means play time,…

Balance is Key: Heavy Lunch, Walk it Off, Then Light on the Dinner.

Yesterday I shared about the importance of starting each day with a healthy and hearty breakfast, even while on holiday.  It might seem tempting to "cheat" on your diet while travelling, but you will feel better and enjoy your travels more when you fuel your body properly. To that end, I wanted to share with you a few of the tasty meals I have been enjoying so far, like the spinach…
