The Mera Peak ALPHA TEAM- expedition combines summiting the highest trekking peak in Nepal with a beautiful approach up the Arun Valley. The ascent involves  glacier climbing requiring  ice axe and crampon skills. The views from the summit are breath-taking. Climbing through the night on this ascent to 21,247 feet as the sunrise captures the heads of the Himalaya; Unforgettable. This is a advanced climb, experience in high altitude is a must. 

The Gokyo Ri Trek - BRAVO TEAM-is a beautiful journey to the enticing Gokyo lakes and Gokyo Ri peak at 17,500 ft for the most amazing viewpoints of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oy. Gokyo Ri trek is technically straightforward for those who would like to walk in the Everest region without the physical stress of reaching the base camp of Everest.

The philanthropic cultural journey CHARLIE TEAM- is a heart felt mission to give back and experience the local culture. You can spend all your time at the orphanage or spend your time on a once in a lifetime adventure seeing the beauty of the Himalya, that includes, elephant safari, jeep trek, canoe trip, musem tours, cave expedition and much more.

​My favorite fashion finds!

Born in Queens, NY, Kidlew experienced subway graffiti and original work from Keith Haring in the 70s and 80s, and Haring became a major influence. In his early teens he rode his BMX bike around Long Island, tagging with magic markers. Eventually, he moved on to spray paint. ‘I was a troublemaker and I was always creative. I had been drawing since I was a little kid. It was innate. Painting on walls or trucks was an extension of drawing on books, lockers or skateboards. It was a good creative outlet’.

​Custom Kidlew Converse

Fashion is my passion and I love finding ways to combine art and fashion! When I met Kidlew I knew I had to do a collaboration with him. I gave him a pair of my converse and said "go nuts", he gracioulsy accepted my challenge and the result was amazing! Now we want to share these beautiful custom kicks with you! Click over to the   SHOP​ and check them out. All orders are custom so allow time for the creation!

​ Tasc performance
My winter fav's!

Baby it's cold outside!
I love being outside even in the winter months! I am a avid skier and love sledding with my kids at our house in the Berkshires! The key to enoying any outdoor activity is the right gear. That's why I layer up with Tasc Performance Bamboo Merino Wool in the winter.
It is soft, warm and breathable! 
The City Park Jacket and the Base Layer Long Underwear are 2 of my fav's!
Check out all their great gear at www.tascperformance.com

Wear Jewelry with a purpose!

Good Charma is a unique line of jewelry that evokes a spiritual and cool essence, while emphasizing the power of “paying it forward,” a concept that I have great belief in. Good Charma was born out of a desire to create something that would make the person wearing it feel empowered; that what they were wearing would bring them luck, confidence or peace.
