 A funny thing happened on the way to the Vail ski slope: I had to wade through a whole snowdrift of men. Yes, there were layers and layers of them, covered in equipment, manly-man outfits and carrying myriad snow equipment, skis and snowboards.  They came in all shapes and sizes, some burly, some fit, but all of them were mountain guys or trying to be.

a young woman staring at all her clothes

This season, if you are like most people, you would like to lose weight, turn your pasty-white skin into something more sensual and get toned and firm. I am firmly in the category of “all of the above” plus, my modest spring cleaning goal this year is to expand my closet space. If closet space is gold, I am pathetically at mud level. For those who know me, this is a rather a desperate and impossible mission which gets tackled with regularity and equal futility.

It’s a magicalworld for our latest photo shoot called “Sexy Holiday Moms!” When I say "magic", the make-shift makeup area on the second floor of South Moon Under was a sort of adult play land filled with cosmetics of every conceivable size, shape and color; kind of like Sephora, but without the high prices. Makeup artist extraordinaire Kate Cipriano whipped up her veritable magic on our models with the help of her pretty partner in crime Nicole Marie Shank of

Boyds, Piccolini and South Moon Under provided the clothing. I was reluctantly enlisted to be one of the models, after a gorgeous blonde mom and her Teutonic children bowed out at the last minute. It was all about featuring the hottest holiday fashions for sexy moms and their kids.’s hard to believe, but it's a snap to be chic with kids! (Even as my daughter smears her peanut butter fingers all over this post. Over and out!)

Okay, you’re tall (nearly 6 foot 6) and blonde,  and a prodigious talent. Oh, yea! And you design the hottest hotels in the world, have a deal with Target to help huisvrouws like me furnish our homes and your favorite projects are being spotlighted at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. If this artist was a gal, you might be tempted not like her, but you wouldn’t be able to help it.

I just interviewed Marcel Wanders, the Dutch rock star powerhouse about his design philosophy and how to bring good design into the home. Look for our video in the next few weeks. He’s a charmer.
