I am working on a photo shoot with one of the greatest recording artists of all time-- my long time friend MARIAH CAREY.
It a lot of fun (as usual-- she is one funny girl!) and while we were working on hair makeup and nails she was multi-tasking and wrote this on her TWITTER page....

The Nail Queen Deborah Lippmann just cut my nails down to "sensible length" She says:"NEVER CUT! Condition those cuticles!!!"

The "Giver o' the glam" Kristofer Buckle is doing my makeup..he says: "Inner beauty only makes up for 5% of it..hahaha-exfoliate!!!"

What I Cannot Change

What I cannot change- leAnn rimes and darrell brown

Had a great week mosting in the lippman collection office working on product development. Part of the process is freeing and part of it is troubling…. Until it all comes together. It is a creative process mixed with straight up business… and sometimes the twain don’t meet!
I am reinventing a large set of products to contain my most requested items and it is a bit of a jigsaw puzzle making everything fit just so.
As of 5 pm on Friday night… I think I have it together. Now I take the weekend away from it and walk in with a fresh thought on Monday. Keep your fingers crossed!

I am also looking forward to seeing my best friend Darrell Brown accompany LeAnn Rimes on the Today Show tomorrow am with a song they co-wrote that is now a book. Things I cannot Change—that says a lot doesn’t it?

Its Easter Night and I just flew from NY to Chicago to meet the team at Barney Chicago Michigan Ave and train them on the Lippmann Collection products as we are now available in the Chicest store in Chicago. I am SO EXCITED!!

inez and vinoodh honored by the Blue School

I work on many photo shoots both editorial and advertising with the incredibly genius photographers Inez Van Lamsveerde and Vinoodh Matadin.  This seasons Gucci, YSL, Balmain, Roberto Cavalli and Dior to name a few that are in magazines now.  When you work day in and day out on a photographic team you become an extended family. Inez and Vinoodh were honored Thursday night at the Blue School Gala and they invited me to join them at the soiree. The team who created the show Blue Ma Group founded the Blue School and innovative creative concept in education.  Jon Stewart of the Daily Show was the hilarious host. He has 2 children that attend the school. There were several performers including Billy Crudup , the PC guy from the mac computer commercials, an all girl accordion playing orchestra and the Blue Men themselves!  Fun Fact- did you know that the creators of the Blue Man Group and Jon Stewart are all former cater waiters of Glorious Foods?  Everyone comes from somewhere so keep dreaming and work to fulfill those dreams. Now there's food for thought.
