Getting Together for a Cause/ MS Fundraiser

According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, approximately 2.1 million people worldwide are diagnosed with MS. I suffered my own personal scare with the disease about ten years ago. Thankfully, I did not develop MS, but I now know how debilitating the disease can be. A friend of mine is fighting her own battle MS and she is winning! I was so happy to support this friend at her 2nd annual Multiple Sclerosis Fundraiser. It was a great evening filled with great friends and great food for a great cause! I want to send a shout out to my friend Mary Moulds, keep fighting the great fight..You are an inspiration!

Miss NJ/ Miss NJ Teen USA 2013

On a beautiful fall night, at the Hilton Hotel in Parsippany, NJ, Over 200 contestants competed in either  the Miss NJ/ Miss NJ Teen Pageant 2013.  The contest showcased some of the best NJ had to offer when it came  to beauty, poise, intelligence and civic duty. There were so many deserving women in the house,  I know it made the judges decision very difficult. But, after all was said and done, two beauties reigned supreme..Christina Thompson, Miss NJ Teen USA 2013 and Libell Duran, Miss NJ USA 2013. I wish all the best to both young ladies as they represent all of New Jersey at the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA Pageants!

Bella Magazine/ Mercedes Benz Fashion Show

I always love to strut my stuff on the runway, but that experience was made 100 times better when you get to be in a fashion that also featured some hot cars courtesy of Mercedes Benz. The show was hosted by my favorite gown show divas, stars of the hit show Jersey Couture, Diane & Co. along with Bella Magazine. I was so excited to rock the runway in a one of a kind gown designed by Mac Duggal and Diane & Co. The stunning gown was valued at $20.000. I felt like royalty!

Enjoying Ocean City

One of my most favorite times of the year is  driving down to Ocean City, NJ to witness some of New Jersey's most beautiful and talented young women as they vie for the title of Miss NJ America. One of the things that I love most about the event is catching up and taking pics with some of my favorite beauty queens.

A New Chapter

One of the most rewarding years of my life was when I held the title of Mrs. New Jersey America 2011. I was able to travel through out the great state of NJ empowering women to look and feel their best with my Inner/Outer Beauty Queen philosophy and promote my charity Kick Cancer Overboard.

It was an honor and a privilege to serve the state that I call home. I now get to welcome in the new Mrs. New Jersey who will carry on the tradition of service with a smile. Congratulations Robin, Mrs. NJ America 2012!

Mrs. NJ United States 2012

Hanging out with my pageant family is always fun especially when it is time to welcome a new member to the family. Congrats to all the ladies who competed in the 2012 Mrs. New Jersey United States pageant. I had the pleasure of getting to know the contestants backstage while doing make-up. I would like to send a special shout out to Eleni, who took home the top prize.

Bikinis, Beauties, Brooklyn!

Making models runway ready  always brings out my creativity..That creativity was taken to another level when I was able to what I love in the trendy Brooklyn Art Gallery "Under  Minerva". I enjoyed using beautiful shades of Golds, Copper, Silver and Ice Blue on the models to compliment the beautiful art that surrounded us.
