Plato’s Atlantis

During my visit to the Long Beach Aquarium I couldn’t help but think of what life would be like to live underwater. Alexander McQueen’s Plato’s Atlantis came to mind immediately. The genius concept and brilliance behind this incredible collection still leaves me speechless, one of   my biggest inspirations to date. Every detail in the collection was perfect, from the masterpiece’s of shoes to the structure and prints. The combination of these beautiful elements to portray the vision he had were incredible.  A rebirth of humanity.

“This collection predicted a future in which the ice cap would melt . . . the waters would rise and . . . life on earth would have to evolve in order to live beneath the sea once more or perish. Humanity would go back to the place from whence it came.” McQ

GPS for the Soul

I was in NY last week for NY Circuit. I was invited to Arianna Huffington‘s house for dinner, where Arianna announced she will soon launch “GPS for the Soul,” a free app which will give people guidance on how to live a balanced, healthy, and happy life. She wanted to know if her guests, all of whom are world-class overachievers, would like to share their views on how they relax and balance their everyday life even with their demanding and hectic schedules. I gravitated right away to the title, “GPS For The Soul.” It hit me straight on! Whoa!!! It sounded exactly like what I could have used during the “soul-searching” journey I was on the past 6 years after I separated from my husband. The solution to my journey, however, did not have a title until that evening  -  “GPS for the Soul” just fits. So, I shared my story about how chaotic and stressful my married and professional lives were then, and how my life today is so well balanced, fulfilling, and happy with a much more successful professional career.
