Literally every season during the fall shows I look forward to the Go Red for Women Heart’s Red Truth fashion show. Considering heart disease is the #1 killer of women it’s so great that so many celebrities, designers and women come together to team up with Go Red For Women and raise awareness for this great cause.

Are You Ready for New York Fashion Week?
I am, I am! Ehhhhhh! The Spring 2012 shows are upon us, and I just got my official press pass to Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week! Joining all the big-wigs of the fashion industry, I’ll be covering the makeup backstage and the fashion shows. IMG has posted the official schedule for Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park for September 8th-15th, and announced some exciting first timers to the venue including J. Crew (are you as excited as I am?), Honor, Candela,
Congratulations Erika and Bryan!
Okay future weddings I will attend, the bar has been set high! Congratulations to Bryan Yates and Erika Mercado, in what could be the most amazing, beautiful, fun, wedding I may ever witness (until I have my own). The bride planned the perfect destination wedding single handed! Although that should be no shock to any of her friends and family, she professionally produces events and photo shoots for a living.
Watching Erika and being apart of the process (even if it was just hearing about it during our regular lunches), and the big day made me believe in magic. It was refreshing to see someone enjoy all the parts of her wedding and not turn into a bridezilla or give into the stress and politics so many do. Instead, it was a everything it should be. A special day when two people unite in holy matrimony in front of their dearest friends and family.
And seriously, how beautiful does she look? Drool over the details…

How did she amp up for her big day? Erika cut out cheese, regimented herself at David Barton Gym and drank a lot of Kusmi “Detox” Tea (ahem, I got her hooked on it!).
Like a true Mexicana wedding, we started the night refreshed, then the lovebirds got hitched and the tequila came out, the jackets came off and next thing I know my date is licking my face. Chalk it up to puppy love.
