Earth Day is around the corner and I am a  lover of all things outdoors!

Did you know that before I started Fabulous After 40 I  produced and starred in my own TV series on HGTV called Backyard Pleasures for many years and just loved it.

What To Wear To A Local Movie Premiere


Rose and JoJami at the Wine/Design Film/Fashion Premier

Last night, Interior designer Rose Giroso and JoJami Tyler hosted the second annual Wine/Design Film/Fashion opening night party for the Newark Film Festival in Newark, Delaware.

This year we were showing the new documentary, Dressed a film about the aspiring young fashion designer,  Nary Manivong who was homeless as a child and overcame the impossible to show his designs at NYC fashion week!

The film  just happens to have been written and produced by local film makers, the super charming duo, David Swajeski and Maryanne Grisz who showed up with Nary to our pre-party!
