Gowns Galore @CastleCouture

I love my job as a promotional model! To be a over 40, mother of 4, it is empowering to be able to walk runways, appear in advertisements and showcase beautiful clothing from designers all across the world. The lovely garments pictured here can be found at You will find all you need to feel like a princess!

Kick Cancer Over Board Volunteer Breakfast

Dancing, singing, eating great food and awarding another deserving family with a dream vacation. This all took place at the Salad Shack in Long Branch, NJ. It was a wonderful morning getting together to celebrate all the hard working volunteers of Kick Cancer Overboard. All who understand the importance of creating and keeping a positive frame of mind while battling cancer. Thank you everyone who is helping "Kick Cancer Overboard"!!!

Pinwheels For Prevention

Did you know that the pinwheel is a symbol for child abuse prevention? My friend and fellow pageant sister, Lea Moelk informed me of this fact when she invited me to the Child Abuse Prevention Gala which was held at NJ PAC. Prevent Child Abuse NJ is the only statewide non-profit dedicated to preventing child abuse. Prevent Child started Pinwheels for Prevention, an initiative to remind everyone that every child deserves a happy, healthy childhood.

Next Level Youth

Being a positive influence to young girls is a passion of mine. I love to help our youth shape their perception of themselves by allowing them to see the beauty that I see in them. Teaching young minds the importance of inner /outer beauty is what I love and live for. My good friend Evelyn Mccleod also shares this passion, as she is the director for the Miss Next Level Youth Pageant, a pageant that gives girls the ability to learn life lessons through healthy competition. I had the opportunity to serve as host for this great event a couple of years ago and was honored to serve as a judge for this year's pageant. I was so impressed by all the beautiful, talented and intelligent young ladies, who stood on that stage like they were ready to rule the world. Congratulations to Evelyn and her good friend Pandora for giving young ladies a chance to shine!

Jovani in the House!!!

I just love the beautiful, glamorous and elegant fashions of Jovani , so it was an extreme honor to meet "Mr. Jovani" himself & a lovely and talented designer of Jovani fashions. Whether you what to be Red Carpet Ready or Pageant Princess Perfect, Jovani has gowns that will definitely allow you to stand out and SHINE!

NJ Marathon/Kick Cancer Overboard

What's  better than volunteering to help thousands of runners get off to a great start at the New Jersey Marathon? Volunteering at the New Jersey Marathon with the awesome Kick Cancer Overboard crew!
It was a wonderful day in Central Jersey to see the thousands who came out to run for great causes and personal achievement. Especially so soon after the sad events that surrounded the Boston Marathon. It gave me a warm feeling in my heart when I saw people wearing t-shirts that read "WE RUN FOR BOSTON"!
Now that what I call "The Spirit of NJ", we remind people that though hard times we come up Jersey Strong!! I dedicate this post to those who were affected by the tragedy in Boston. Peace, Prayers and Love.

Celebrating Ten Years!

The beautiful Jaffa Shrine in Altoona PA, played host to the Miss, Teen and Mrs. PA International Pageant 2013! It was a wonderful night filled with wonderful women who are the perfect examples of inner/outer beauty! It was also a night to celebrate director Jodi Cessna, for ten years with the International system! Congratulations to the Cessnas, Jodi, Scott and Sammi..I know it is a team effort. I would also like to send a special congratulations to Miss PA International Rachel Syktich, Miss PA Teen International Ashlee Fagans,  Mrs. PA International Marci Mc Nair, and all the ladies who competed that night. You all were awesome!! To learn more about how you can represent at the next PA International Pageant, visit

Blessings of Beauty

Prom time is such an exciting time for a young woman. It can also be an expensive time..That's why I enjoyed being a part of the Blessings of Beauty Dress Fair where dresses were donated to young ladies who need a helping hand when it comes to the financial stress of prom purchases. I was so touched when I saw how many beautiful garments were donated. The selection rivaled most high fashion boutiques! A special shot out goes to my friend Dani Micale and her Mom, Dot for putting the fair together.
