After trying to invent Stand Up Paddle Ballet, I thought it might be a good idea to get in condition before my next attempt:) Don’t be deceived by our instructor (right). Angela may look tiny and adorable, but her fitness classes are known to make men who can bench press 200 pounds groan in pain! The cutie on the left is Byanka.
Stand up paddle yoga is all the rage. Since I’ve never done yoga, while I was in Hawaii, I decided to invent stand up paddle ballet. Mind you, I haven’t even danced ballet on dry ground in nine years, so I don’t know why I thought I could do it out on waves…but I figured I shouldn’t let a little thing like that stop me! I learned from this experience that there’s a reason why ocean ballet hasn’t become a fad—I spent more time falling in the water, than ballet-ing:)
The Laura Mercier happy hour at Nordstrom was girl paradise with makeup artists and gourmet chocolates. This spring is all about using makeup to flatter your features―or as I view it, wearing makeup instead of letting it wear you. Rather than giving me a dark, dramatic smoky eye, the Laura Mercier artist smudged on a lighter sapphire liner that made my eyes pop.
They are going on today and I am so thankful to be honored here as the director of But I Do, joining a group that has included Ron Howard, Samuel Jackson, Hayden Christensen, Sandra Oh, and Rossana Arquette. Besides the fact that they’re famous, there is another minor difference between other winners and me:) Their staffs involved experienced professionals, from crew to catering. My staff consisted of friends who graciously volunteered, and catering was when I brought a bag of Milky Way candy bars for everyone to share! What I loved most about But I Do was the fun we had making it.
Canada, I’m so happy to be back!! I just finished filming a segment on Shaw TV with the hilarious comedian Patrick Maliha and the lovely host Fiona Forbes. All you Canadians can catch it at 10PM tonight. Vancouver-ites can also watch it then and at 12 midnight, 2AM – for those night owls – or 10AM tomorrow on Channel 4. Instagramers, I’ll be posting more pics.
I became friends with celebrity artist Marcus Monson! He’s as fun and personable as he appears in the media. Marcus showed me how to look like I’ve had a “three-week tropical vacay in just three seconds!” This is the sun-kissed glow my face got after using Guerlain Terracotta Spray. It’s makeup magic!
