Tide Pods: Laundry Redefined

When we talk about the process of defining personal style it's usually centered around acquiring great pieces that fit and flatter. But it's equally important to be able to keep your clothes looking as good as you did when you bought them. To that end, P&G sent me some Tide Pods to try out on laundry day. Here's a video featuring my experience with the product.

Toyos Eye Clinic

Several weeks ago I attended the grand opening of Toyos Eye Clinic's Green Hills location. Guests were treated to sumptuous bites from The Chef and I and a fashion show featuring some gorgeous, high-end frames. What really made me want to share their story with you is their dedication to the patient as a person.

Now It's A Party

Now It's A Party

Last week I did something I haven't done since I was 28 years old. I had a birthday party. Only three people showed up for my 28th birthday party, so I assumed only a handful would show up this time, too. I seriously underestimated my wonderful friends.

Sometimes It's Hard To Be Me

I spend a lot of my time watching models strike poses at runway shows and photo shoots. Most of them are now friends of mine, as are the designers that create the pieces that float down the runways or end up on the pages of magazines.It's hard work, and they deserve a lot of credit for what they do. But what I do when I'm out among them is just as hard, and I'd like to explain why.

Fashionable People Worth Knowing

Fashionable People Worth Knowing

Someone recently described me as "well-connected". The world is well aware that people with disabilities exist and Nashville is certainly aware that I exist. The difference between just existing and really living lies in engagement. It is only in engaging others that the disability starts to disappear and the focus shifts to how we can connect as human beings. Only engagement can lead to genuine inclusion. I prefer to think of myself as being connected to some incredibly good people because I had the courage to engage them, and they had the character to reciprocate. Here are some of these extraordinary, fashionable people hanging out with me during Nashville Fashion Week
