As the Creator & Editor of INSPIRATIONS & CELEBRATIONS, my mission is to share inspirational and informational guides and articles about a range of lifestyle topics, including Fashion & Style, Health & Beauty tips, Home Decorating & Entertaining how-to’s, Travel Guides & Special Events.
In addition to creating content for INSPIRATIONS & CELEBRATIONS, I’m currently a Contributing Writer for Carmel Magazine (the premiere lifestyle magazine of the Central Coast in California), Shakers Magazine (a quarterly publication focused on wine & spirits), and SeeMonterey.com (the travel destination website powered by the Monterey County Convention & Visitors Bureau).
I have also been a Contributing Writer for The Los Angeles Fashion Magazine (which publishes news about fashion designers, style trends, and events), an EHow.com Style Presenter (hosting and appearing in a series of style how-to videos), and a Contributor to the HuffingtonPost.com.
Fashion & Style
The INSPIRATIONS & CELEBRATIONS‘ Fashion & Style Section educates readers about how to easily coordinate trendy pieces with timeless classics in an eye-catching, chic, and sophisticated way. In addition, this section features “Fabulous Finds“, which are easy-to-navigate Shopping Guides highlighting currently available products from top brands and designers. This section also includes Designer Spotlights, featuring exclusive interviews with celebrity fashion designers, up-and-coming designers, and announcements about new collection launches.
Health & Beauty
Having tested hundreds of beauty products, I’ve learned which treatments and products work best when it comes to beauty and personal maintenance. I regularly share my secrets and discoveries about fabulous health and beauty products, ranging from natural treatments to innovative devices and solutions that are truly effective.
As I regularly consult with Dermatologists, Aestheticians, Hair Stylists, Makeup Artists, Fitness Trainers, Doctors, Beauty Experts, and Healthcare Providers about techniques, treatments, and products, I often include their expert advice and findings in my health and beauty articles.
The INSPIRATIONS & CELEBRATIONS‘ Health & Beauty Section shares tips, tutorials, and advice about a variety of health and beauty topics, including makeup, skincare, hair, nails, diet & nutrition, and fitness.
Home & Garden
Living a quality life starts with your home environment, which should be a reflection of our personal style and a place that brings us tranquility, joy, and comfort.
Being educated by my mom (who has an interior design degree) about home decorating, I’ve always enjoyed delving into home and garden projects, ranging from home organizing to home decorating. As a result, I enjoy sharing home decorating and gardening tips and ideas with readers.
From the “Interior Inspirations” Series (which shares interior design ideas and home decor trends) to articles featuring simple solutions to common household problems (like storage, organization, and cleaning), the INSPIRATIONS & CELEBRATIONS’ Home & Garden Section features helpful tips (including expert advice from celebrity interior designers) to help make your home environment fabulous and functional.
Entertaining & Party Planning
In addition to managing my family’s award-winning party supply manufacturing company (Creative Balloons Mfg. Inc.), I am also the past President of the Monterey County Young Professional Group and a previous Co-Chair of a large fundraiser for The Junior League of Monterey County. Throughout my experiences helping to lead these organizations, I’ve learned a considerable amount about event planning and entertaining.
Whether you’re hosting a casual get-together at the beach or you’re planning a gala event for a major celebration (like a wedding or anniversary), I often share tips and how-to guides that assist readers in making their special occasion a memorable and fabulous affair. Plus, I love to include expert tips from celebrity event planners as well.
To help readers entertain with ease, the INSPIRATIONS & CELEBRATIONS’ Entertaining Section shares simple solutions, easy party-planning tips, and fun ideas for celebrating life’s special moments.
Travel & Special Events
Being based on The Monterey Peninsula (in Northern California), I’m lucky to experience and share my coverage of world-class events, a fabulous lifestyle, renowned hotspots, and an internationally-recognized community. Since the Monterey Peninsula is my home, I often love sharing my favorite places to go and things to do on the Monterey Peninsula.
Whenever I travel to world-renowned luxury destinations, do fun activities (like golf, wine tasting, spa treatments, and more), and attend special events, I share my discoveries and experiences with my readers.
The mission of this lifestyle guide is to “Inspire Style and Celebrate Life“. To discuss potential collaborations, special projects, sponsorships or advertising campaigns, feel free to contact me. Cheers!
