Glam-A-Thon’s annual Lipstick Lounge


More than 400 guests attended the 2nd annual Glam-A-THON’s Lipstick Lounge extravaganza at the Gallery of Amazing Things last month. Attendees of the event were treated to specialty cocktails, a wide selection of cosmetics and shopping the amazing couture, all with the goal to raise money for local South Florida women battling breast cancer. The event raised thousands of dollars for the Broward Health Foundation, which provides breast cancer screenings; treatment and medical care for uninsured and underinsured women. I was thrilled to be part of this great event again this year. This over-the-top event features everything from decadent confections, cocktails, palate-pleasing bites, a casino, desert room, dance floor, and the ultimate in beauty and fashion. One of the highlights for this year event …

TRENDENCIAS – Do what makes your heart sing…

My philosophy in life has always been to do what makes your heart sing. I have always followed my passion for drawing and other artistic pursuits, even though it was not considered a “moneymaking” move.

We were part of a panel of experts talking about the inauguration of Donald Trump and we had an instant connection. A couple of weeks later Carina asked me if I was interested in …
