PELHAM, NEW YORK, USA, November 15, 2019 — Two NY teen entrepreneurs lit up the Forbes 30 under 30 summit in Detroit through street wear and environmental passion! 

Forbes supports Entrepreneurship, and proves it when Forbes8 and iCON partnered with two 16 year olds: Julia Corso and Vincent Testorf, co-founders of a brand new streetwear company based in NY. Part of GenZ, these two young entrepreneurs were the perfect match to link their inspiring generation with the new Forbes8’s interactive international platform.  
Forbes 30 Under 30 in Detroit was on fire, according to Teen entrepreneurs GenZ Julia Corso (age 16) and Vincent Testorf (age 16), creators of street wear line dripeight (www.dripeight.com) which was presented during the NYFW last September. 

The Teens partnered with Forbes8 and iCON, a new industry-player tapping into the creativity, intellect, and potential of Gen-Z. Dripeight is a world class streetwear line that gives a portion of all sales to help climate change. In their own words: “We want to make an impact in everyday life, and to connect with people who have the same sense of style, and fashion. Through our designs, we can express our worries about what’s happening to our planet. We donate 10 % of our profits to charities – it is our way to show our commitment”.

Dripeight designed a T-shirt showing the partnership of the brands during the “forbes under 30” summit in Detroit. 
The Gen Z teens “T-shirt” was so dope (desirable), it made it into the hands of basketball legend Kevin Durant, rapper Quavo Huncho, and rapper 21 Savage
The mammoth movement of Gen-Z catalyzed Dripeight and iCON’s initial meeting. iCON, a new industry-player tapping into the creativity, intellect and potential of Gen-Z, closes skills and data-gaps by harnessing their most precious asset: talent. iCON fuses creative content, social media and skills-based education to provide a new place to be inspired, to exchange ideas and build skills. iCON’s formidable partnership with Forbes8 grounds it as the go-to source for Gen-Z innovation, and a natural collaboration for Drip Eight.

I believe Jordyn Woods! Travis Scott NYC is waiting for you!

The drama, I never thought I would even be commenting on this until it hit my household. YES, this weekend is the long awaited Travis Scott concert at the Barclays in Brooklyn. I hear that Kylie Jenner is upset so Travis Scott canceled Buffalo concert and flew from NY back to LA. He even might be canceling his concert at the Barclays. Listen to me, Travis Scott, you worked to hard to get to this point, compartmentalize and get out there and give these kids a good show.

Let’s everyone calm down, we all know Tristen Thompson is a player, right now he does not want to be tied to one woman. Jordyn welcome to real life, maybe it’s time you stop living in Kylie’s guest house and get a place of your own. As for Khloe, your a single Mom, work on your business and give yourself a little time. As for Kylie & Jordan, I think you need to take a pause and redefine your friendship and time will heal. Travis Scott don’t get caught up keep making music.

Roman Holiday, where everyone has fun on a family vacation!

Rome will set anyone’s hearts aflutter, for all the right reasons. We all have a perfect vision of what our Roman Holiday will be like, but I have to say ours was better then we could have dreamed thanks to ORBITZ https://www.orbitz.com at The Westin Excelsior Rome  @westinexcelsiorrome, one of the city’s top five-star hotels. Standing proud off Via Veneto, Rome’s grandest street, this “Grand Dame” offers a noble setting, world-class accommodations and amenities, and its place in the pop culture firmament: Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita” was filmed here in 1960 and figures prominently into the movie’s storyline. Special thanks to Maddalena Ciociola @marriott international for sharing history and hospitality to my family after a long flight. The suite allowed us all to feel the grandness of the hotel.

 History has never been more alive in the Eternal City, which offers a feast for all your senses: sights (Colosseum! Ruins! The Vatican!), sounds (Vespas gliding through the streets), scents (the aroma  Via Veneto), touch (fur at Fendi, rocambolesco!) and tastes (the best Italian food in all Italy). It’s the perfect get away for any American looking to get away from a crazed routine back home. Whether you want some unplug time with the kids or some romantic alone time with your husband, Rome is a place where anything is possible. Add in a luxurious suite at @westinexcelsiorrome and travel by @orbitz and you’ll have the makings for an even better Roman Holiday. 

Nothing gets kids, err teenagers, more excited than a touch of Hollywood. Federico Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita” was filmed throughout Rome, including @westinexcelsiorrome. The iconic movie follows a gossip writer over seven days of looking for “the suite life” throughout the city. 

Who doesn’t want a “Roman Holiday?” The 1953 romantic comedy is a classic, made more famous by scenes of Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck riding around town on a Vespa. You can, too, at @westinexcelsiorrome. The five-star hotel not only has the motorbikes to rent, it has THE same scooters used in the movie. It’s all about location, location, location, and @westinexcelsiorrome has that in spades – located off Rome’s tony Via Veneto, home to Café de Paris and Harry’s Bar, the hotel is nestled between the Spanish Steps and the Borghese Gardens & Gallery. Oh, and it’s near the best shopping in Rome, including its native son Valentino. One of Conde Nast Traveler’s “Gold List Hotels,” @westinexcelsiorrome offers guests 28 rooms and 35 classic suites with Italian-style furniture and accents, marble tubs, luxury linens, jaw-dropping views and delicious gastronomy at Doney. The great part about Italy is that you can eat and drink to your heart's content and lose weight. Maybe it's the walking, but I think its the smaller portions and fresh ingredients. 

 

Eat, drink and be merry … you can do all three, and then some at @westinexcelsiorrome. Whether it’s Mediterranean fare at Doney, located off the trendy Via Veneto; Café Doney, a bold, black and red adorned restaurant where the city’s fashion, beauty, and business gather; or ORVM, an elegant piano bar great for aperitifs and midnight nightcaps, you won’t go home hungry.

How suite it is! @westinexcelsiorrome boasts four suite styles luxurious enough to attract the world’s VIPS– Villa La Cupola, a multi-level home with living room and breath-taking frescoed dome; The Imperial, overlooking Via Veneto and the United States Embassy, has fresco decorated ceilings and two royal bedrooms; the Via Veneto category, with stunning views of the legendary Via Vittorio Veneto, are corner suites with circular marble-floored living rooms; and the Grandluxe, which come decorated in supple carpets, velvet curtains andBohemian chandeliers.

Kudos to @orbitz for putting together our amazing journey. Rest, romance, rejuvenation, renewal = Rome. Bellissimo! Traveling with your kids is not easy, especially when they’re teenagers, but our trip to Rome hit all the right notes. We savored the beauty, sights, monuments, and food, while mom and dad got some fantastic alone time when we were at the hotel.

Our Olympians need the best, I recommend #HEX #Laundry Detergent for Gold Medal Results

Our Olympians need the best, I recommend #HEX  #Laundry Detergent for Gold Medal Results ​FullSizeRender

I am so proud of all the Olympians especially proud of our athletes that we sponsor at the New York Athletic Club. The USA Gold Medalist Women Rowing team are incredible, they train hard, watch nutrition and need to look great in their uniform representing the USA. They also must be conscience of products that they use, especially their clothes and workout wear. A lot of people might not realize it but many leading brands of detergent have chemicals in them that can irritates the skin. As a "spandex mom" who likes to workout and admire our Olympians I highly recommend using HEX free and clear laundry I give it a gold metal, (yes that's me holding the gold metal) because it is eco-friendly, cleans and does not irritate your skin. USE this Promo code:

We all like excellence and high performance, let me tell you about HEX and why its the only detergent I will use on my athletic wear  Did you know that odor get trapped in the polyester and builds up because traditional detergents do not get the sweat, dirt and body oil. Sometimes instead of clean clothes, you get clothes that smell good, are just coated with a fragrance. Then when you workout and sweat the odor comes back again. YUCK, you will not have that problem with HEX detergents they clean. When workout wear is cleaned correctly it lasts longer. I may not be a gold medalist but I do strive for excellence and good health for myself and family. It does all start in the home, so treat yourself and your workout wear with the best products on the market. Personally knowing the athletes, I know everything does come into play when working out and competing and trusting your team. I have to trust the products I use just and know that they will help me not hurt me. FullSizeRenderUSE this Promo code:

Go see #Snatched Silly Fun, but meeting #GoldieHawn & #AmySchumer amazing!

IMG_1165Snatched was a silly fun movie, dumped by her boyfriend on the eve of their vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Amy Schumer) persuades her cautious mother, Linda (Goldie Hawn), to accompany her on an exotic getaway to South America.  Opposites, Emily and Linda must soon work through their differences to escape from a wildly outrageous and dangerous jungle adventure funny, entertaining. But the best part was meeting Amy and Goldie at TheMom's blogger movie premier event on Park Ave in New York City. The interview was serious at times but Amy true to herself was hysterical The moms interviewed and hosted Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn for a Mamaraazzi event in NYC for their new movie Snatched. They sat down with The MOMS to dish on the film and during the interview Amy admitted “her uterus remains empty for now, but she would like to have kids someday.” I also gave Amy Schumer a crystal for good energy and she liked it! I gave the one to Donald Trump too, hey we all need good energy, maybe on a higher level it will help. We all had a absolute blast and even all dance together in honor of #DanceforBreastCancerChallenge.
