Took a stroll through @centralparknyc to see the golden, red and colorful leaves 🍁 🍂
Same applies to a scarf, or socks. And shame on the designers that try to trick us. #fashiontips #style #sweater #scarf #fashion
My last post was deleted by Insta for showing (.)(.) so I’ve cropped these to be more respectful, but my post (and the gorgeous photos) are meant to be a celebration of #breastcancersurvivors who have embraced their scars. .

So about that post yesterday....
.
.
When I wrote it I was sitting in the waiting room at my doctor, waiting for another ultrasound and blood work. In that moment I felt scared, pissed off, alone and  mostly vulnerable. And so I dealt with those emotions in the best way I knew how...I vented to my phone. .
.
What I was not prepared for was the almost instant flood of support, of kind words, of similar stories - some uplifting and some more heartbreaking than my own - of love, of kindness, of community. It changed my appointment, my day, my outlook. .
.
So last night after dinner, I sat with my husband and we read each and every note together. And cried. A lot. .
.
Because it felt so good to know we weren’t alone. It felt so good to know we were loved and not pitied.  It felt really darn good to hear stories of success and it felt insanely overwhelming to see how many people, both close to us and those we’ve grown apart from, have had to deal with these very same struggles. .
.
There is no easy answer to this, and all we can do is have faith. In God, in ourselves, and each other. .
.
Social media gets such a bad rap these days but yesterday, we got to experience what I think the founders of Facebook and Instagram were really trying to achieve when they invented these very powerful tools. .
.
They say takes a village, but we’ve clearly got a f*cking empire - that’s thanks to all of you. .
.
I love you all for bravely sharing your own stories and words of kindness. And I encourage each and everyone of you to reach out in times when you feel  lost her alone. Ask for help! Ask for support bc you might just be blown away at what you get in return. .

This is what hope, faith and about $10,000 in fertility medication looks like.

My husband and I have been trying to grow our family for a few years now, and this will actually be our second go-around the IVF-erris wheel.  The last time we did this, we only shared it with our closest friends and family, and I remember that despite seeing countless other women and men in the waiting room, infertility seemed so taboo to talk about face-to-face. I spent so much of that last attempt looking down, looking away, avoiding the glances of others.  Some of my own family didn’t want to hear about it, which made the entire process feel even more shameful and alienating.
.
But I recently went to an event where 16 survivors of breast cancer reconstruction were brave enough to be photographed in the nude to show the beauty in their scars.  A huge part of their reason for doing this, was to encourage women to talk about their own experiences, fears, and reservations. It made me realize that I shouldn’t view my own struggle as a failure, nor should I feel alone in this endeavor. .

I’ve been lucky enough to have a career in the media, where my voice can be heard, and so I’ll be sharing this uphill journey with anyone who wants to come along. If you have questions, are going through something similar, know someone who is, or maybe just want to cheer me along, I welcome the comments (or DM me). If you don’t agree with what I’m doing for personal, religious or other reasons, please know that I respect your opinions and kindly ask you to refrain from sharing them with me during this time. Trust me...it’s hard enough without any bad juju.

We live in an incredible world, where medicine cannot only save but create lives. And where we, as women and men, no longer need to feel inferior due to our medical misgivings.
.
So, all we can do is jump into the deep end once more, and hope we come out stronger on the other side. And, if you’d like to hear the stories of the brave, powerful women who inspired this post, check out @artbeautypodcast..

Thinking about this incredible view of #Barcelona from the top of #parcguell. I can’t wait to get back, but excited to start my week back home in NYC.
Perhaps the most incredible blend of art and architecture I’ve ever seen. #sagradafamilia #gaudi #gaudiarchitecture #architecture #art #barcelona
