Welcome back to my Modern Mom Blog!! It’s a brand new year. And a brand new year, means a brand new start. There is no more perfect time than NOW to make your vision board, and put your plan into action. Yes, 2012 is about ACTION. This year, we’re not just talking – we’re walking our talk. And it’s gonna be powerful. This year, we’re DREAMING BIG.
You may recall I wrote a post on aging gracefully. I pointed out the simple fact, that no matter how rich, how poor, how thin, how happy, how unhappy you are, there is one thing in this world you cannot fight, and just happen to be battling at the EXACT same rate as the next person AGING. Madonna is over 50. Yes, Even Madonna turned 50! Enough said. But in that Blog post, I talked about my desire to age without any help from Dr. 90210. I wrote about how to age gracefully. But, today, were taking it one step further. Today, were talking how to put that aging process on slow-mo. And Im not on the fence here. I just turned 35 and because I dont intend on going the plastic route, Im gonna fight the crap out of this aging process.
When your alarm goes off in the morning, do you hit Snooze, or do you wake immediately? Or perhaps a more appropriate question… HOW MANY TIMES do you hit the snooze button? Truth.
I spent the afternoon in New York last week with long distance friend, mom, and actress Denise Richards. We chatted over tea and scones, and then I decided to ask her some questions and find out what it’s like to be a single, working mom in the spotlight. Denise was candid, honest and sincere about her life. I give you our interview…
I love Madonna. I have loved Madonna from the moment she burst onto the scene in fishnet stockings, too much hairspray and a bad die job. If my iPod playlist isnt enough proof, well frankly, I dont know what is:
I promised my readers when I started blogging, that I would always be honest– show the good, the bad, and the ugly. And for that reason, I’m sure you Modern Moms won’t question why I posted this below. Or maybe you might. Who posts hate mail? (And a pretty bad one, to boot.)
So I woke up at 5:30 am on Sunday morning, stomach in knots and pretty anxiety-ridden. This upcoming week is a big one. I just launched The Erica Diamond Jewelry Collection for Ice, I’m missing back-to-school on Wednesday to shoot a TV segment out of town, and just the general mommyhood, wifehood and life duties are swirling around in my already-cluttered brain.
Spike Lee was on my mind this morning. Remember the movie, Do The Right Thing? Well, two weeks ago, I questioned myself– did I do the right thing? This morning, I questioned myself again, am I doing the right thing? I’ll get to my story soon, but first….
I’m going with the rhythm of the people. You asked. I answered. Summer’s around the corner. Bathing suit season is almost upon us. The weather is improving. Comfort food is out.HEALTHY FOOD is in.
Mariel Hemingway and I have been in touch for a little over a year. I admire what she stands for, and how she has turned tragedy into triumph. Mariel is one classy lady, as you will see. Enjoy getting to know her in this candid interview.
