Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine


I have recently become affiliated (and by affiliated I mean fully immersed and involved) in the chic and sophisticated new guide to luxury, Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine. My life has all-of-a-sudden been put into over-drive as we are working hard to create a new phenomenon in print as well as online. This magazine has the aesthetics of a high quality soft-back coffee table book with its matte finish, gold embossed lettering on the cover, and over-sized pages. The magazine is dedicated to searching the world for all that inspires, and bringing it together in a stimulating format that engages ones emotions. Topics include: fashion, elite and luxury travel (including destination descriptions and reviews), exotic car reviews (from the Lamborghini Gallardo to the revolutionary Tango- pictured below, to the Rolls Royce Phantom), as well as other stories featuring inspiring people who are making their positive mark on the world today, reviews of fine restaurants offering the best dining experiences to be had, and almost anything else that aspires to a higher level and can thus be categorized as luxury.

It's a blessing to be involved with such an exciting venture. We are meeting so many facinating and inspiring people- I find myself constantly being reminded that it is up to us on an individual basis to be the change in the world that we want to see, instead of waiting around for others to change. We have the ability to make a difference if we put out the effort to do so. I heard a quote the other day, "It's not about compelling everyone to do everything, but to encourage everyone to do something." I feel like we have the power to bring about great things if we put out the effort. I see this in people who have decided they are going to make a difference, and then have actually gone out and made that difference.


I look forward to what the future holds, but at the same time- I am really trying to enjoy being in the moment. That is so important- it's one of my philosophies to live by. It's so easy to get caught up in the fantasy of the future, when everything is going to be exactly how you want- i.e. when you're done with school, or when you get that higher-paying job, or when you're married or own a home.. How often do we say- "I can't wait till..."!! It's such a trap to think that way. We run the risk of Adam Sandler's character in "Click," passing through life only thinking about the next phase and meanwhile, we miss all of the precious once in a lifetime experiences that come along that path down the road of life. Not sure how I got on this tangent, but it is 2:40am and I need to be working on my presentation for tomorrow's meeting...

Anyway- check out the magazine... www.bhlmag.com or ask me about it if you want a printed copy or are interested in it in any other way.
