This week was definitely a great one since I had two photoshoots that went live with the Ben Jordan shoot on Mon and then yesterday, Isaac Weber on The Fashionisto. The recent shoot with Isaac Weber (NY Model Management) was such a great one as via my Co-Founded styling agency, Accessory2, I styled him in Victorinox Swiss Army, Frank & Eileen, Eddie Bauer and Marchon Eyewear (Lacoste and Salvatore Ferragamo). The shoot was shot by Jeff Rojas with hair and makeup by Mirna Jose.
As you know, I am an Office Champion which allows me to use and share how I integrate Microsoft's Office365 and its suite of programs within my daily needs! As someone who is constantly styling items whether it's for a red carpet for celebs, runway shows, photoshoots and more, this is the best way to stay organized between multiple parties, vendors etc. I use it prior to any project to store items that I am pulling and to maintain the status on tracking for packages and more. Post events or projects, I love using services such as OneDrive as a means to collect press clips, imagery and so much more. Over the past few weeks, I've enjoyed creating new folders to store images not only to showcase the portfolio of work that I have participated in but also to share with brands to see how their pieces were used.
Via OneDrive, I can choose how people see information that I wish to link them to. Whether I give them access to an entire folder such as The Fashionisto (showing all the shoots that have went live) or individual ones within this folder - it's a click away. In addition, I can share links by allowing people to edit or to view only. This is such a great feature and one that can come in handy when sharing your files.

Earlier this week, Paul and I made our way to Barclays Center in Brooklyn to see Demi Lovato's last show for her Demi World Tour with Tampax being her sponsor! Demi partnered with theory Be Radiant Collection which is all about empowering her fans, especially those that are girls to encourage them to have the confidence to wear whatever they want at anytime during the month! You can see some behind the scenes footage from The Radiant Collection and Demi on YouTube.
Prior to the concert starting, Paul and I had the chance to meet with Demi before she went on stage! To see her fans embrace her and to see how she wove the need for self confidence throughout her show was definitely great to see. I also loved that Christina Perri was one of her opening acts. I have loved this artist's music and like that for as large as the venue was, she happened to make you feel like you were watching within an intimate one!
To give everyone the chance to join in the fun, girls can enter the Be Radiant Sweepstakes through November 2014 for a chance to win weekly prizes. Entering the sweepstakes is simple and social, girls can post a solo selfie showing off their Radiant-inspired look on Twitter or Instagram tagging @Tampax, using the hashtag #BeRadiantSweeps and including the link www.BeRadiant.com. Or girls can enter at www.BeRadiant.com.

Tuesday night, Tom Ford hosted Lisa Eisner at his LA flagship store. Lisa is not only Tom's friend but is a photographer and artist. Lisa's jewelry line is bold, organic and is made of bronze. As someone who enjoys statement pieces and the idea of maximalism (more is more) - it was such a fit to include her within this site as each piece is definitely embodying of her own personal style. She hand makes these pieces in California with her bohemian point of view which ensures that each person rocking her statement jewelry will not go unnoticed.
