On my husband

Is my husband really as sweet and amazing as he comes across on the show? Yes! I think all of my friends and colleagues would agree that rarely have they met a more committed or supportive husband. We've been married for seven years, and I still feel the same way about him as I did on our wedding day. I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have him as my husband!

On dreaming

Since the show, one of the producers indirectly set us up with (owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey), and Om Aroma, my skincare company, is the first and only luxury organic skincare brand that they carry. I used to always study eLUXURY when I was researching brands so it's an amazing dream come true for me! They have been extremely supportive and committed to our line and even attended the press event that you saw on the show. I used to dream of wearing gorgeous dress pants with a fitted silk charmeuse shirt, a classic Burberry coat, and well-heeled shiny shoes (made for wide feet, of course)! It represents something far beyond fashion--it's about feeling good in my body, loving life enough to get dressed up for it, and living out my dreams. To take a break from the piano for the first time in my life was something that I had also dreamed of since my early twenties. It took a decade to finally do it. More than anything, this whole experience gave me the strength, affirmation and knowledge that I was doing the right thing. Now I will concentrate on Om Aroma and will dedicate the same passion to it as I did to the piano. I can't think of a better--or more stylish--way than to have made that transition with Tim Gunn's Guide to Style! So, Tim, Gretta, and everyone at Bravo, here's to savoring life, making things happen, and having fun--all in a Burberry trench coat.


How can I register or apply for the show? My mother desperately needs a style guide. She's a beautiful woman but you can't see it from the way she dresses. She somehow manages to highlight all the thing she dislikes about herself and I know she wants to look good for my father when he comes back from Afghanistan on the first of this next month. Please Help! Thank You!
