In the Biz: CocoFloss says FLOSS or BUST

Screen Shot 2015-11-26 at 7.24.14 AM

I recently moved to Las Vegas as many of you know so everything is new to me here! Even though it is vastly different from NYC, I am finding gems in the most unusual places. In a city like Vegas, there is way less noise so you can appreciate and discover new things.

I had some long overdue dental work that needed to be done so that was first on my list when we moved. We found Northview via Yelp and went for a visit. Upon my third visit, I noticed the cutest little promotional cards saying COCOFLOSS.

I did some research and found out about them. A cool and modern twist on how to market, promotion and understand flossing. Very cool.

This product was created a sister duo team! A dentist and an artist :)  How amazing.

Your New Best Friend on

I woke up early to write this post because it has been on my mind all last night and the entire week. I have a neighbor who does NOT take care of his dog. His dog is in kept in filthy conditions with flies all over him and hardly any water. He has never been out of his kennel for the past 2 months. Furthermore, the dog is sweet as can be. He only barks when he is hungry and I can understand that.

He is black but actually covered in dust.


The worst part is, I wrote to the local humane society and I got ZERO response. It is because the shelter is already FULL of pit bulls and why would they want to take in one more.  There are so many worst and tragic stories out there, they can’t save them all – I guess. What a pity. It is annoying enough that people continue to breed dogs, sell them and they all end up in shelters and Craigslist.  Millions of dogs are killed each year because they are unwanted.

This weighs on my heart heavily and I urge you all to seriously make some room in your heart and home for an unwanted pet this holiday season. They will change your life in ways you never can imagine. Humans and animals are suppose to live in peace and harmony. We have so much to learn from one another and the system is broken right now.  Rescue a pet in your area using and find your new best friends.

November is Adopt-A-Senior pet month!


The Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

I have been an on and off member of Audible and I have recently rejoined this fall to catch up on some much needed reading. As I have mentioned before, social media is a ‘brain snack’ and a book is a ‘brain meal’.  And I know my brain was hungry!

If you are fans of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, you will be familiar with the name Shonda Rhimes. She is the creative force behind these shows and her writing style is so distinctly hers, you will recognize it quickly.

It is always interesting to get a closer look at the creator, author and writer’s mind – complicated and always opinionated.  I personally loved the chapter about her dramatic health kick/weigh loss. It was truly inspiring :)

The mega-talented creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away With Murder chronicles how saying YES for one year changed her life―and how it can change yours, too.

With three hit shows on television and three children at home, the uber-talented Shonda Rhimes had lots of good reasons to say NO when an unexpected invitation arrived. Hollywood party? No. Speaking engagement? No. Media appearances? No.

And there was the side-benefit of saying No for an introvert like Shonda: nothing new to fear.

Then Shonda’s sister laid down a challenge: just for one year, try to say YES to the unexpected invitations that come your way. Shonda reluctantly agreed―and the result was nothing short of transformative. In Year of Yes, Shonda Rhimes chronicles the powerful impact saying yes had on every aspect of her life―and how we can all change our lives with one little word. Yes.
