Julia Childs was right, people who love to eat are always the best people. I learned this at my first Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo, where I was a proud member of Unilever's booth and Agents of Change campaign. The conference is attended by 5-8,000 Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, people who are deeply passionate about nutrition and the true original foodies.
Our booth was beautiful and spacious, filled with yummy food, easy recipes, career inspiration and friendly faces. I had blast serving up cooking demos that showed consumers how to make healthy meals, including Hellmann's Kale & Quinoa Salad and Knorr's Creamy Bruschetta Chicken. As a PR professional, I always love to meet our consumers, it makes my heart happy to chat about the brands and projects that mean so much to me!
Being a part of a campaign like Agents of Change is so rewarding and watching it come to life at the conference was magical. I had a moment where I felt like the luckiest PR girl in the world, to be working on a project that is in line with your personal passions and principles is the dream.
Cheers to good food, rewarding work and meaningful relationships!
Get ready to overdose on pumpkin, sweaters, tea and fuzzy socks because October has arrived like Kimye strutting through Paris Fashion Week.
Who doesn't love fall? It's the season to reconnect with your booties, Instagram falling leaves with the cheesy, "Falling in love with fall!" caption and enjoy the crisp air before winter.
Make sure you take full advantage of this gorgeous time by participating in every seasonal activity possible. Embrace #sweaterweather and paint with all the colors of the leaves babe. Check out what's on my calendar for this month below.
Ice, Ice, Ice Baby
Bring all the boys to the yard one last time before you're stuck inside with hot chocolate. I learned how to make Vanilla Bourbon ice cream with Ample Hills Creamery and it was the sweetest way to say goodbye to summer.
Even though I'm #adulting for the rest of my life, fall will forever equal back to school. My favorite class was always English and to celebrate the new season of education, I took my first writing class at Brooklyn Brainery. It was so refreshing to just learn without any pressure from a boss or colleague. Brooklyn Brainery hosts affordable classes on every topic under the sun, from cooking to printmaking. Class is in session!
I call Sweater Weather, Drake and Tea weather. Gray clouds force you to retreat indoors, play Drake and sip tea while contemplating texting your ex. Is you wit' me or what?
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. The pumpkin movement is real, no matter how basic you may think it is. Go get that spice and head to the patch girl.
My ultimate favorite holiday! Halloween is all about good vibes, orange Kit Kats, Thriller and costume contests. What's not to love?!
This is the real me: what I love, what makes me happy and what makes me buzz.
