Gold Medal Hair and Winter Skin Care on Let’s Talk Live

Share Button

Yesterday morning I went on Let’s Talk Live, a local Washington, D.C. area news show that is part of the ABC network to talk about gold medal worthy hairstyles and winter skin care tips in the lead up to the Winter Olympics.

Doing PR for so many years, I’m usually the one accompanying my clients on set, media training them and making sure they stay on topic and well…smile (that’s important!)

This time, it was just me in front of the camera, no one to guide me and certainly no one to take those cool snaps of you LIVE on the air.

But no matter, I worked it out and had my cousin take pictures from home on the TV, I took a few selfies (of course!) and I asked someone to take a full-body shot before going on.

HOW they managed to mess it up, I don’t know! It’s blurry, but at least you get the idea.

For my outfit, color was important so that I didn’t get lost on screen and the red lips gave me a sense of fearlessness! I don’t want to give it all away, so please do check out the segment here.  I promise you there is humor — “sock hands” anyone?

Watch it and you’ll know what Natasha and I were talking about — we certainly had a good laugh about it!

Cheers from the UK! We are still in London and believe it or not, it is the only major city in the world that is occupied by 40% of open spaces and parks. Everyone imagines a city similar to NYC, but the fact is there are lush green parks everywhere. It is absolutely LOVELY! Picnics, walks, strolls along the river — it’s truly incredible and one of the things we most miss about living here. When there is nothing else {Read More}

This is a video recorded in a plane bathroom on my way to London. I needed a break from the kids who were screaming and jumping in their seats. I handed them over to my  husband, grabbed my travel kit/bag and headed to the lavatory for a bit of alone time. There I tell you what essentials I ALWAYS take with me when flying — including a surprise or two! And?? Good stuff in there, RIGHT?! What essentials are in {Read More}

This weekend it rained both days — and not just any kind of rain, but the cold and windy kind that gets you from all angles. Sunday we had a photo shoot lined up for Domicile Magazine — it’s a local Washington, D.C. online publication and the family and I are going to be on the cover of the summer edition. I went with a rainy day chic look making my Gap pink wellies the main attraction. I had selected {Read More}
