I’m an old school Rodial fan, so much so that I checked the blog and saw I’ve been talking about the brand since 2013 thanks to one of my favorite retailers, SpaceNK, who always curates the best products, especially out of the UK where both brands originated! I had the pleasure of meeting their founder, Maria Hatzistefanis aka @mrsrodial when they launched makeup in the US in 2015! The throwback photo of us is worth the click for that blog post. Over the past few years, I’ve watched this brand explode and Maria take her Boss status next level. She’s the definition of a beauty boss, and earlier this year launched a book, How to be an Overnight Success.
Maria: We launched it in the US in the beginning of the year, How to be an Overnight Success and the message of the book is you can be a success, it just won’t be overnight. It took me 18 years to be where I am today. And the book is all about inspiring and motivating people, entrepreneurs and freelancers to keep doing what they are doing and work hard and to not get disappointed if things don’t happen immediately. It takes time and it’s a positive message to keep going and keep on being the best you can be!
It’s been an exciting week with my Cosmoprof family! As some of you know, Cosmoprof is the largest and most awarded B2B beauty event in the US, they have shows around the world but their Vegas show, which is coming up July 29-31st is not to be missed if you’re based here or looking to launch your beauty brand in the US. I’m so honored to be their on-air personality this season and can’t wait to interview the brands coming out to the show in Vegas.
I’ll be available Sunday, July 29th and Monday, July 30th from 1-3pm interviewing brands on their star items. I’ll also be on the :How Influencers are Shaping the Beauty Industry” Panel on Tuesday, July 31st from 11-12:30pm.
What a night, as many of you know Cynthia Nixon is running for NY Governor and she needs our help! The Sex and the City star co-hosted an event with Sex and the City award winning costume designer aka our favorite person, Patricia Field. This week kicks off the 20th anniversary of the show so to see the two reunited with a Carrie necklace in hand (and ahem, PATRICIA FIELD IS WEARING MY BOSS RINGS!!! Actually two of them stacked because shes a major boss). Fun fact, Patricia Field created the original Carrie necklace and it’s available on her website and yes, you can get it personalized to your name.
Back to the real reason for last nights event, Cynthia Nixon is running for NY Governor! Her platform is around improving and reforming public education, clean energy, fixing our subways and equality. Read more about why she’s running HERE.
