hit the ground running :: my new gig with M&V Magazine


After a summer in Italy reentry is always a bit bumpy, mama mia!  Jet lag ugh and, missing my morning Italian espresso, missing friends, missing the ocean, the slow pace, and the Italian language, the markets, the church bells, and people talking with their hands, I even miss the non stop buzzing of the Vespas on our street.

I am blessed to have a job that allows me to work anywhere, and a job that when I return although hectic, is creatively fulfilling, a joy! I recently was offered a new position with Muses and Visionaries Magazine as their “Entertaining and Home Editor”, definitely a dream gig. The team at M&V are visionaries themselves as they say this is the start of a beautiful friendship.

This position allows me to  share gatherings and parties all over the country and all over the world, pretty darn cool, and wait until you see who we have lined up! It’s a fantasy to finally be able to feature iconic women (and some men) sharing their party style with me, and in turn with all of you.

I had the pleasure of shooting one of my own artistic muses Susan Hable last week, with the splendid photographic eye of Kathryn Mccrary, I think you will be amazed at the mind blowing celebration she puts together for the pages of M&V. She’s cool, real, fun and has pink hair…She’s definitely a girl  who’s crush worthy! Check it out coming in November. In the meantime, follow M&V on Instagram, check out my official editorial debut, a feature from Italy in the current food issue and of course for all my styling adventures follow me on Instagram. Have a great weekend and ciao for now xx

Muses and Visionaries Magazine Behind the Scenes


One of the coolest things about living in Italy all summer is that I get to do my styling work as well. It’s one of the big perks of being a freelancer. One of my favorite publications Muses and Visionaries Magazine  asked me to do a food/entertaining story for their September issue with my Italian bestie and uber interior designer Monica Damonte. If you read my blog or follow me on IG you know that she and I are the Eddie and Patsy of the Italian Riviera and St Tropez (stay tuned for St Tropez adventures coming on the blog soon).

For Monica entertaining is a snap. She lives in the most amazing house, my dream house and it’s set up for easy entertaining, but more on this coming up in the September issue of M&V Magazine.

Here are a few behind the scenes for you today. I think my favorite part of the entire day was shopping, well maybe drinking wine while prepping! We had the most amazing food and the wine was divine.


Local Olive Oil vendor down the street from the house, so amazing!






There will be some amazing recipes and some super cool tablescape ideas in this feature. You won’t want to miss it!

Look out for the September issue of M&V Magazine and follow all my behind the scenes in Italy on instagram.
