Women’s Rights in Afghanistan

I am so proud to be part of Nooristan Foundation‘s initiatives to help women in Afghanistan. In honor of International Women’s Day tomorrow, I  share this new video/short film that shows how Nooristan Foundation is supporting Afghan women’s rights and rule of law through Global Rights Legal Aid Program.

 

 

My “MOMpreneur” Update!

I’m a mom to a four year-old and currently 20 weeks pregnant while managing FLOW Blow Dry & Beauty Bar and a few other projects – guess you could call me a MOMpreneur.  Right now, I am working on opening a 2nd location for FLOW, and the past few months have been about designs, plans, approvals, permits…all the fun things, right?  In parallel, working on tasks for the current location, marketing/advertising campaigns, recruitment, product/furniture orders, signage, working with the architect and contractor for the new salon and so much, much more.

Opening a salon is a lot of work, but doing it while being a mom and expecting has been more of a challenge than I thought. But I’m always up for challenges, and I am taking it day by day and scratching off my to-do list in the process (I’m obsessed with to-do lists and project management – devil is in the details). My goal is to expand the FLOW brand regionally and beyond!  If you haven’t checked it out, here is the website: www.flowblowdrybar.com!

Me & Jared Leto

I enjoyed watching the Oscars this year, and tweeted up a storm during the show!  I have yet to see “Dallas Buyers Club”, but Jared Leto’s win reminded me of my meeting him a few years ago in NYC during a fashion week event. He was a super nice guy…guess this is when he was more “Goth” than Pantene hair.
