oscar party segment on WTNH!

There is something I’ve always suspected in my many, many years of watching morning news shows.

Shooting a television segment is actually a lot of fun.

It doesn’t feel fun at first.  Like any time I’m doing something this public, I was all nerves for about 24 straight hours beforehand.  I do plenty of video for Sugarlaws, but that’s video that I edit myself, and if it doesn’t turn out well, I just don’t post it — sorry guys, but you’ll never see my avocado ice cream video, because, it turns out avocado ice cream is un-salvageably gross.

But this was in a real television studio with cameras and lights and a host who does this every day — I had no choice but to cross my fingers, take a deep breath, and hope for the best.

And you know what really helps?  You guys.  So many of you sent me such sweet messages and were so encouraging that I couldn’t help but feel reassured.  And once I got over my nerves, I could actually focus on having fun!  So thank you, thank you, thank you.  Because really, how can you spend six minutes talking about food and fashion without having fun?

A few things I didn’t have time to cover, because six minutes goes by really quickly!  The black dress is by Elie Tahari (and it’s even on sale at Saks [1])!  It has this amazing subtle shimmer, and I love that it combines lace and sparkle in a really understated, elegant way.  And the red shoes are from Forever 21, and they’re under $25 [2]!

Last but not least, Oscar season isn’t over yet!  I’m working on an amazing project with COVERGIRL — so check back next week for more details!
