Start planning for the hot months ahead with my guide to the essential Summer Must Haves from top to bottom. But this is not you typical must haves list, NO!, this year we’re combining summer essentials with lifestyle basics.
1- Panama hat – the first summer essential you can get at Bergdorf’s Goodman or from the street vendors on 5th avenue.

2- Sunglasses find the best pair that fits your face shape. Just like my friend Kate Rozz found. Follow her on Instagram for her amazing finds.

Essentia-Water4- Sunscreen Even though I am not a big fan of some toxic SPF this boost of Coco & hibiscus butter from Boots Hawaiian Islands Body Butter, Coconut & Hibiscus should do a trick and protect your skin from sunburns. It smells super delicious to.

5- Lightweight scarf- like this Roberto Cavalli multi printed silk stole. Iit’s always handy to carry a colorful cloth. You can also use it as a belt with your trendy jeans, or attach it to your handbag.

13- Low sandals– also known as elegant flip flops. These Giuseppe Zanotti rhinestone flats will be perfect to accompany you everywhere.

ZANOTTI-SANDLAS-0_1024x102414- Dairy free delicious ice-cream waiting in the fridge- recharge batteries! The easiest and quickest is to mix frozen bananas in food processor until nice and creamy. Garnish it with nuts, coconut sprinkles, and home made chocolate fudge. (melt organic raw cacao butter and add 2tbs of organic raw cacao powder) Or enjoy by itself. Either way is fab!

THRIVE event in New York with Arianna Huffington

ADRIANNA-HUFFINGTON-1

If there was ever a time I wish to clone myself Arianna Huffington would be top candidate on my list. In her effortless way of 2 day Thrive Live event she reunited 2000 sleep deprived unisex beauties in New York city the place that never sleeps. Living in the big Apple is all about getting results and surely New Yorkers have shameless guts to go for it. Knowledge and awareness is everything because as media says

“if it bleeds it leads”.

The THRIVE event opened important conversation for creating a change, redefining success with full integration, but foremost consciously being present. 

Arianna Huffington truly created platform for Thriving not surviving with profound stage repertoire from NY Times best selling authors, speakers, top comedians, heart touching music performance and panel conversations.

Envision slowing down, eliminate sensory overload and you are on your way to THRIVE!:

Wow…Sister I m listening! You got my full attention.

Even though Ms Huffington is not a regular person I believe in a power of ordinary people creating positive change in the world. Her legacy beyond the doubt turned around average citizens of the world perception on capturing american dream. Being Greek immigrant herself who’s emergence to US along with strong sleek accent proved as fierce assets initiating significant change not only in world’s of media but self thriving and enhancing millions of lives.

The main ingredient that contributed to her empire was simply her genius brain, big vision, stubbornness and once upon a time over exhaustion from sleep depravation that resulted in collapsing to the floor accident that broke her jaw and required some stitches.
Sleep depravation has been a major factor causing some biggest catastrophes. I remember growing up in Poland when a case of train station female guard who fall asleep just for 5 minutes at her little traffic monitoring booth devastatingly killing so many. It shook the whole country realizing that sleep loss is a big public safety hazard every day on the road. I can only imagine this guard’s life how sleepless it became from that point on.

                                                                                                                                        Huffington’s success story came with a high price of a wake up call or rather call to action the quest of creating this sister hood movement. I admire her. She is a queen of throwing spontaneous top banana jokes, shares practical tips, makes everyone welcomed, invites you to wonder, and let’s everything else unimportant go. She believes that women majorly can share her vision by getting this campaign off the ground.

 Best tip of the day: I loved her suggestion of completing a project simply by dropping it.

There is so much to learn from this woman.  When she approached me in theatre line before the show started I felt her divine presence. She deeply looked me in the eyes with such intensity of kindness and it felt as if she was always my BFF.

Just a week prior to this event I have freshly graduated from Health Educator Program   at Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, FL. I perpetually remain hungry for “pure-organic” knowledge and wisdom. THRIVE event turned out to be cherry on the icing of such infinite intelligence. The integrity of real success is so aphrodisiac and goes much beyond power and money.

That was my AHA movement. Is giving a secret to success? We find confirmation not only in ourselves but in people around. Giving should pay off right?. Why generosity is so costly then? Getting perspective to connecting to people’s pain, their stories and laughter its the third metric to achieve pure organic delicious richness. If I level with my fashionista customers I could never sell them medicore products. The data shows that givers are the biggest performers.

 The obvious patterns of successful givers: spot the takers at your mist. Be conscious. Takers rise quickly but also fall quickly.

One more time its Ms Huffington’s way of giving back to us DIFFERENTLY: without restricted interactions. In times of challenge its all about how we relate to things. Obstacles are like hidden blessings and we just need to trust there is a greater purpose there. Life has everything written in our favor.
I couldn’t imagine THRIVE event been organized any other way. Everything Arianna touches turns into gold. It felt like its power and success was achieved so simply with her liberating compelling mission. This movement is eye opening and has many prongs to be the most important issue for all of us today.I learned exactly what I was supposed to learn and highlighted the day with few new THRIVING friends.
