If you're a fan of Sex and The City you'll remember a series of episodes that followed Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte going west for a big LA weekend.Remember how Carrie met the Vince Vaughn character and it turns out he wasn't a big Hollywood executive but rather a house sitter for Carrie Fisher from Star Wars? Ok, imagine that but with guys and that just about tells the tale of my Seattle adventure with my friend's Erwin Gomez, Brian Fekrat and the person we were visiting, our Seattle based buddy Marko Thomas!
We had the most amazing time, all topped off by hooking up with one of the first friends that I made when I moved to NYC at 19 years old. Kendall Gelfand was in my step class at New York Sports Club on 7th Avenue South & 10th Street in the village. After class, we would run over to 3rd floor walk up with an amazing roof deck and get sun. Can you imagine the free radicals that I took in! Thank goodness I've using SPF ever since 😀. On Sunday night we hooked up with Kendall and she took us to some of her favorite dance spots in Seattle. Oh and you know we hit up the original Starbucks Coffee shop, yum! I can't wait to go back!

Having a nice cocktail with friends is a great way to celebrate, socialize and decompress. But most traditional cocktails tend to have a high caloric content and contain an excessive amount of sugar which promotes yeast growth within our bodies. In this The Secret To… with Paul Wharton episode, we explored the art of Organic Craft Cocktails which taste amazing, have fewer calories and are made with organic spirits and all natural juices. Bottom’s up!
A few weeks ago I was in NYC appearing on The Today Show and as luck would have it, I also had a meeting at O, The Oprah Magazine the following day. I really do love that so many things in my life still excite me like a teenager and let me tell you, going to The Hearst Tower to visit "O", The Oprah Magazine is definitely one of those things! Now that I've launched my own modeling agency PWM2, my first order of business was to see where I could plug my models into their magazine. I also was personally tasked with coming up with some ideas about content that I could contribute to the powerhouse magazine. I am still excited about the boundless possibilities and let me tell you, the visit did not disappoint.
First of all, the lovely lady leaning over my shoulder in the picture above is Alicia Bridgewater, The Bookings Editor at O Magazine. Alicia was my roommate in NYC about 13 years ago when we lived in The Gramercy Park area of Manhattan in a little 2 bedroom apartment that had the bathroom the size of a changing room at a department store and oh yeah, it was a 6th floor walk up! Once you were in the house for the night, it took a lot to get you back out! And don't get me started on the food delivery guys... We used to have to negotiate a $2 per floor tip incentive for them to bring us our food! And in those days, the delivery budget was tight! We could only afford $6 bucks worth of bribery so we had to meet them half way and use the other $3 bucks on lottery tickets or subway cards! When Alicia and I were roommates, she was the Assistant Bookings Editor at Cosmopolitan Magazine and now she's the main chick running the model bookings over at O Magazine. She earned it.
Alicia took me around to meet everyone. What a pleasure it was to meet so many people that I see listed each month in the masthead of a magazine that is a mainstay in my home. Checking out the fashion closet was my modern day "The Devil Wears Prada" moment and I was there on the day that all of the packages were being prepared for the readers that won Oprah's favorite things for the holiday season! Seeing the very talented and charming Adam Glassman in his work element was a major treat for me as well.
I'm not alone when I say I absolutely adore Oprah and being there at O Magazine and planting seeds with people that I've known and or admired for so many years was a very powerful moment for me. My bucket list is getting checked more than the women on the Real Housewives of Atlanta!
