Brooke Burke Shared Her Energy Secrets

Friday, June 24th, 2011

On this month’s cover of Redbook? Brooke Burke, from Dancing with the Stars. Brooke and I met for lunch at one of her favorite places in Malibu with a killer view of the ocean, and she shared just how she balances her job, four kids, marriage and body. The story is an “As Told To” from Brooke to me to you.

Read Brooke’s whole story on Redbook.com, but here’s the opener to give you an idea of what you’ll be getting.

How Does Tech Affect YOUR Relationships?

Friday, June 24th, 2011

Sometimes it’s hard to know when technology is helping our relationships (“Let’s meet 4 coffee in 15. C U soon!”) or hurting them (“Uh, sweetie? Can you put the iPhone down and come to bed?”). So, in the interest of making sure you use your tech with love and for love, I wrote this piece in this month’s Self magazine. The best part? It’s a quiz! (Take the quiz on Self.com now and find out where you stand—or sit—while you type.)

Enjoy and treat your friends and favorite gadgets well,

A Fun, Fab Interview: Blake Lively and Florence Welch

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

For the cover of the July 2011 issue of Glamour, I worked on a super fun story.

Instead of interviewing actress Blake Lively myself, I helped pull off an even more fun feat, in which the lead singer of Florence and the Machine, Florence Welch, interviewed the actress. The two are—surprise!—really good friends. And their dynamic with one another was so fun and positive, it was a great reminder of how valuable new and true friends are. Oh, and the nine pages of photos of Blake in the mag? Stun-ning.

Check out “Ooh la la, Blake Lively Talks to Florence Welch,” their full chat with each other in the July 2011 Glamour.

Hope you enjoy it!
