Soledad OBrien and Mindy Grossman

Award-winning Journalist Soledad OBrien along with her husband Brad Raymond hosted the annual fundraising event, “New Orleans to New York City Gala,” with guests Bevy Smith, Ubah Hassan, Geoffrey Fletcher and more. The celebration was the biggest night of the year for the Starfish Foundation, created to provide promising young women a bridge between obstacles and opportunities. Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception followed by the evening’s festivities which included a special music performance by members of the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra.

The Starfish Foundation Industry Roundtable Powered by Build N Blaze gave Starfish scholars a behind the scenes look inside running the Home Shopping Network (HSN). HSN CEO Mindy Grossman was on site for a Q&A with Soledad OBrien and to take the young women scholars through a day in the life at the network.

ABOUT THE STARFISH FOUNDATION: After witnessing the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina in 2006, OBrien and Raymond began privately awarding scholarships to young women who didn’t have the resources for success. As their efforts grew, they officially formed the Starfish Foundation to expand their reach and help even more young women. Today the Starfish Foundation provides scholarships to disadvantaged young women in under-served communities and is committed to giving more than just financial assistance to its scholarship honorees. The Foundation creates a customized support program for each participant that reflects that person’s specific needs.


Caress Forever Collection and Tonya Reiman – Dating Tips

As a Caress Fabulista, I wanted to share some fun facts and tips on body language, fragrance, and touch!

Whether it be in your professional life or landing that second date with Mr. Right- the Caress Forever Collection’s mission statement is to help women leave a lasting impression. For the most detailed explanation, visit and learn how to read women if they care about you, and how to make them.

Fragrance, touch, and body language have been proven to be the most valuable when making a first impression. To understand how to be unforgettable, Caress teamed up with body language expert, Tonya Reiman. Tonya, along with interesting survey results, has helped shed the light on the subject.

Tony Reiman

Here’s the truth about dating in today’s world:


  • Online dating isn’t just accepted – it’s widely embraced. Two in five Americans use dating sites and apps. (Most using two or more sites.)


  • Online interactions aren’t enough to seal the deal – more than half of men say in person non-verbal cues are what make a woman unforgettable.


  • Chemical romance is real – Nearly 6 in 10 men find their significant other desirable because of their soft touch or irresistible scent.


  • Nearly half of men are more likely to remember a woman’s scent or touch than her name.


  • Second-date deal breakers include a lack of physical chemistry (59 percent), non-verbal signals that show a lack of interest (42 percent), or an undesirable scent or fragrance (35 percent).


Taking the facts above and Tonya’s tips below, women are now able to use the power of non-verbal communication (including using the touch technology in the new Caress Forever Collection) to their benefit in dating and in their everyday life.


Tips to Leave a Lasting Impression:

Touch + scent = unforgettable. Leaving a lasting impression goes way beyond physical appearance; what matters is physical interaction and fragrance. According to a recent survey, nearly half of men are more likely to remember a woman’s scent or touch than her name. Why? A touch forms bonds, commitment and intimacy, while scent triggers feelings and memories. Find a way to incorporate a natural touch; that instant connection is electric and makes an indelible memory.

o Bonus, if you’re wearing Caress® Love Forever™ Body Wash, it will release a burst of perfume upon touch to truly captivate the person you’re meeting.

Beam with confidence. Show you’re comfortable in your own skin – stand tall, make sure hands are turned down (hands turned up are a submissive sign), make eye contact and dress in something that makes you feel good. You will radiate and be irresistible.

Play it coy. When you really want to reel your date in, don’t give it all away. Maintain an air of mystery by slightly embellishing the busyness of your life and leaving some questions unanswered. It will leave your date wanting more.

Talk without words. The average person takes in more signs than they realize, so if you’re looking to show someone you’re interested, lean in while you’re talking, point your feet toward the other person and nod while they speak to let them know you’re listening. Even the way tilt of your head speaks volumes – a tilt to the right signals you’re trustworthy (perfect for a job interview), while the left makes you more attractive (try it on a date). Want to take it one step further? A soft touch to your heart and exposure of your neck are sure to send a message of sensuality.

About the New Caress Forever Collection:

The Caress Forever Collection is the world’s first body wash with Fragrance Touch Technology. The breakthrough technology of Caress Fragrance Release Pearls™ releases bursts of perfume with every touch of your skin. The collection combines sensual floral notes to create a fine fragrance for up to 12 hours.

Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening System Review and Giveaway

Let’s talk about your beauty regimen and dental health.  This is an area that’s often overlooked due to loving makeup, hair, and clothing.  Having a beautiful, healthy smile is just as important because it can enhance your total look!

We have to love our teeth regardless of what we wear or our favorite lipstick.  I am an active beverage drinker due to the fact that I’m always on the go.  One tip that I learned (from various dental articles) is that coffee, tea, and other beverages can stain your teeth.  The only beverage that doesn’t have staining properties is water and over the course of a lifetime we (all) need a professional teeth whitening treatment.

I was fortunate to receive a package from Smile Brilliant to help restore my smile.  The process was very easy with AMAZING results! You will not find an easier teeth whitening system (with results) for an affordable price.

Teeth Whitening – The Perfect Accessory
Compliments Red Lipstick
“a smile is the best makeup any girl can wear”


Here’s the teeth whitening steps:

1.  Create the mold of your teeth with impression material.

2.  Ship back to Smile Brilliant (don’t forget the return shipping label.)

3.  Open the mold package and wait for use after a few hours of drinking a beverage.

4.  Use the desensitizing gel to assist with potential teeth enamel burning; this will not occur if you wait a few hours after drinking a beverage.

5.  Fill your teeth molds with the whitening system and that’s it!  You can leave it on for 15 minutes or as long as you like.  I used my teeth molds in a variety of time frames but the best results happened overnight.  I loved waking up to a whitened smile; then flossing, brushing, and using a mouth wash.

I STRONGLY encourage everyone to try this system!  Let’s not forget that teeth whitening is actually cosmetic and can be very expensive.  The use of “other” teeth whitening systems can also remove teeth enamel but Smile Brilliant molds are fitted to your teeth which makes a difference.

What inspired you to become a menswear designer?

My father was the biggest inspiration. He opened my eyes to the industry and really took me under his wing. Since working with him I have developed my own style in how I design clothing.

In your opinion, what makes your studio and collection unique from any other brand?

Our studio is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. My father and I are both musicians and we have a full stage setup in our studio. We enjoy playing music after a long day. He is a drummer and I’m a bassist. We have a different ambiance compared to most places. We are located on 1400 Aliceanna Street in a two hundred year old warehouse. The juxtaposition of a vintage building with modern luxury suits really works for us. We are really active in the community as well. We recycle gently used suits and give them to gentleman who have been recently released from prison. The goal is to dress them accordingly to give them a better chance at landing a career. More info can be found at

What are some of your greatest accomplishments as a designer?

I was named Baltimore’s Best Tailor by the City Paper in 2014. I also was awarded 40 Under 40 award from the Baltimore Business Journal.

What’s your favorite accessory from the collection?

We just finished up a ton of new ties that are made from vintage silk. They all are beautiful but one particular paisley tie has been my favorite!

products6 10268699_669041523165945_2756549420953977287_n

Honestly, how many suits do you own?

I have all the staple suits of a wardrobe. The navy solid, grey solid, charcoal herringbone are essentials in anyone’s wardrobe. I have about 15 suits. I recycle my older suits and give them to our Sharp Dress Man program. I would have a much bigger wardrobe if I kept all of my suits, but the enjoyment of telling a gentleman that the suit I’m giving them was mine personally is an awesome feeling.

Do you have any advice for anyone that’s interested in becoming a menswear or fashion designer?

I would recommend spending as much time as you can meeting people in your industry. They can help refer business and teach you things about the business. I personally think it makes you a better designer if you can help recommend other people for your clients needs.

What’s in the future for Christopher Schafer Clothier?

Right now we are rapidly growing here in Baltimore. The vision is to have a shop in Los Angeles and London.
