Glamorous maids.

Earlier this week, you saw the Fashion of Goodwill Runway Show photos from Brian Rayford. Here are some amazing shots from my father. Now you know where I inherited my photography skills from. I actually love the photos and I am not just saying that because he is my father. 🙂 See the rest of the album on my Facebook page by clicking here. Kisses…tu-anh

If you have been following my recent posts, you know that it’s time for the Goodwill fashion show again! For those of you who attended last year and told me that it was the best one ever, I cannot wait to surprise you again this year.  And if you missed last year’s amazing event, you definitely need to get your tickets before it sells out again.

Speaking of raising money for a great cause, have you seen Goodwill of Greater Washington in the news this past week? A three-carat diamond ring was anonymously donated to the Annandale store! I wonder if it is someone’s engagement ring…  Well at least they are donating it to help the community. 🙂 The ring is being auctioned off on their online site, and so far, bids have already reached over $9,000. How great is that? My mother is a diamond expert. I will have to tell her about it.

Not only will I be the creative vision behind this year’s fashion show, but I have also been working with my team on decorating our new tu-anh boutique with Goodwill furniture.  We are going to give all the shelves and racks found at Goodwill the Polished by tu-anh transformation to fit into our beautiful boutique. (see photo below of the process)

What can you do to support Goodwill’s mission? Start by coming to the Fashion show on September 17! Get your tickets early-we expect that it will sell out once again. See you there! xoxo…tu-anh

Eating Healthy Doesn’t Have To Be Boring…

I hope that you had a great 4th of July holiday weekend. I am sure you spent the long weekend eating, barbecuing, celebrating, and other fun, but not so healthy activities. It’s now time to get back into your healthy habits. A diet full of greens will not only energize you, but will also heal your Heart Chakra, too! Don’t forget your exercise and sleep to keep those wrinkles and dark circles away. This summer, Crete is on my agenda and I’m getting ready for another fashion show that I will be directing and styling on September 17. So I do not have a choice but to make sure I get in great shape! Besides getting up at 5:30am to train with my accountability partners, I make sure to eat healthy so that I stay energized and productive at work. See below for some creative ways to eat healthy as you get in sexy-beach shape. Have healthy recipes to share? Email me.
