We’re stepping it up, People! As our retail big sister, Green With Glamour, grows and grows… we’re keeping in stride as any younger sibling might. We’ll still be bringing you major, eco-chic bargains, letting you in on fantastic “green” design finds and ooh-ing & ahh-ing over all amazing things vegetarian and vegan, but now you’ll be getting more than just our 2 cents. We’ve enlisted some serious (& delightful) experts to cover what you love!
Meet our new (& seriously stylish) team:
Celebrity hairstylist & make up artist, Vanessa Rose Price, will be schooling us all about sustainable make up, hair and skin care with The (Eco) Beauty Biz. Not only does she tame those famous Justin Bieber locks (along with a scrolling list of other celebs), but Vanessa will be taking time out of her ridiculously jet-settery schedule to bring us “eco” beauty tid bits along the way.
Switching gears from the fast-paced hullabaloo to the bucolic countryside, comes our new foodie team, Abby Lutz and Shane Walsh. A clothing designer and photographer respectively, this couple traded in their edgy Brooklyn address for a bit of paradise on a farm in rural Vermont. With a slower paced life now (though they still both work and turn out insanely gifted work), Abby and Shane have found themselves lingering in the garden and creating in the kitchen. The result? Mouth-watering, inventive concoctions crafted from the very food they grow. Whatever is ready to be picked is what goes on the plate… the very reason why they are The Accidental Gourmands.

And from the moment I met writer Tiffany Romigh in her well-appointed home in the Hollywood Hills, it was obvious that she was a woman of style. Seamlessly fusing Street Art with French antiques, bold pop colors with delicate metallics, Tiffany has a knack for merging genres and mediums – and boredom is her enemy. Never one to ask others to do what she can, Tiffany rolls up her sleeves and dives right in – whatever the task might be! Having recently relocated to Austin, TX… she’s now faced with a whole new house to grace with her good taste – and a whole new city to explore. With Chic Re-do, Tiffany shows us how turn the simple into the sublime and the unexpected into the unbelievable!
Professional TV producer (and semi-pro shopper), Katie Vaughan, has traveled many, many miles and shopped her way across multiple countries in her young life. And though her career is a demanding one, she always manages to find time to take several trips a year, snagging chic (and sometimes hilarious) thrift store finds all along the way. By writing 2nd Hand Spotlight, Katie will be sharing with us her favorite vintage shops, thrift stores, flea markets and hidden shopping spots… and maybe she’ll even explain what possessed her to get those metallic high tops!
Of course, I’m still here… wrangling stories from the inspirational, unique and supremely talented bunch above! I’ll also still be covering divine architecture (both old and new) and must have interior design pieces (as some of you know… I’m an Interior Designer by trade). On top of that, I’m writing a new piece called Green Goodie Review. With it I explore great, sustainable finds that are exceptional and moderately priced (under $25). Everything from brilliant hostess gifts to vegan dog treats to organic room sprays. Stay tuned… it’s going to get fun!
