So Very Vida interviewed by Amber Lynn on Rock N’ SeXXXy Show

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by the stunning Amber Lynn on her popular Rock N’ SeXXXy show on LA Talk Radio alongside cool guests like Playboy Playmate, actress and comedienne Julie McCullough and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ricky Byrd. As it turns out, Amber is acting in a film called Who’s Jenna with Ronnie Marmo, a friend of mine. We will also be acting together in multi award-winning filmmaker Thomas J. Churchill’s much buzzed about film, Blood & Iron. I am always astounded by how small our community is. I learned a lot of beauty tips […]

A Day of Beauty, Magic, Transformation

Yesterday was truly an amazing day of Beauty, Magic and Transformation when my good friend, Faith Boutin and myself went to visit legendary fashion designer Sue Wong, who I am blessed to have as friend as well. Faith is the managing editor of FVM Global Magazine, which I was honored to be on the cover of, so it was truly a fashion filled day! We had a great tour of her immense showroom ranging from her beautiful swatches that date back to over 15 years. Sue is so on point that she has kept every single one. And then we […]

Michael Christopher Jones of Horror Society

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by noted horror journalist Michael Christopher Jones aka the Dedman for the noted Horror Society Radio show right before Halloween no less! He was a great interviewer and as it turns out he’s from Woodbridge, Virginia, which is near where I’m from, so I just had to blog about him. I spent so much time in his hometown as they had the biggest outlet mall in the area, Potomac Mills. While Michael was exploring all things horror, I was exploring all things bargain priced! Like many in this business, Michael wears many […]

Rachel McCord Strikes A Cord!

I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely stunning, sweet and bubbly Rachel McCord at her launch event for her self-titled blog, The McCord list, that a friend invited me to. That night a few years back I expressed to her that I wanted to start a blog and she really inspired me that night with her contagious optimism and peppy attitude. I can tell that she really wants to empower other women and forgive the pun, but her kindness and can do attitude strikes a cord with me! McCord is a socialite and on-camera personality that serves other influencers […]

Seeing Double…The Sartorial Elegance of the Harris Brothers

I formally met the Harris brothers probably around a year or so ago at noted designer Sue Wong’s estate, but I had seen them at various events over the years. Though I see a lot of dressy people at events around town, I am constantly struck by how they can both be such great dressers, but also hold on to their individual style, which I’m sure is hard to do as identical twins, especially in a casual blue jeans and a T-shirt town like LA. Mark has more of a classic look to his style and Matt is more rock […]

Maryam Morrison of The Eden Magazine Creates her Own Garden of Eden

At a party a few months ago that legendary fashion designer Sue Wong held at her historic hillside estate, the Cedars, I had the immense pleasure of meeting Maryam Morrison, the lively and personable founder and illustrator of the wonderful “The Eden Magazine.” This popular magazine is a free online magazine that focuses on spreading compassion to all sentient beings living in a healing and peaceful world. I felt an immediate bond with Maryam and though it’s been a short while, I feel like we’ve become good friends. We are of the same ethnicity and are in the media, so […]

Delphi Greek’s 30th Anniversary!

Opa! On October 18, 2015, I had the pleasure of attending Delphi Greek Restaurant’s 30th anniversary. This Westwood-based restaurant was honored with an impressive nine commendations from government officials. There was even a festive blue carpet and ribbon cutting ceremony.

Accomplished Hosts are inDspotlight!

Once in a blue moon, you meet incredible, like-minded people that you know you’ll have an amazing synergy with. This is the case with two stellar journalists, H.R. Cole and Jesse Mogle, that I have met recently. As it turns out, this past spring, I was awarded for my journalism endeavors by designer Eugene Sidney and so was H.R., but alas we didn’t get to meet at the event as it was packed to the gills. We were both members of the same organization for media people, but didn’t really get to cross paths until the film I made my […]

Joyce Chow is an Absolute Joy!

This past summer I ended up covering Comic Con at the last minute and I feel like one of the few people watching out for me that actually meant it was the lovely and amazing Joyce Chow. Joyce is an amazing photojournalist and a good friend. She has vast media experience writing and shooting for her own outlet Montebubbles, named after her beloved dog Monte as well as freelancing for CNN’s ireport, Global Auto News and The Georgetowner. Joyce has a great attitude and no matter what the conditions in the press line, she’s always smiling. It’s hard to believe […]
