Lights. Camera. Action.

A few days ago I was invited to come visit and tour around the ABC/Disney Studios on the Upper West Side. As soon as I saw the World News Tonight set, I had to sit in the desk and pretend to report the news. It felt pretty good if I do say so myself. It was amazing to see how much technology controls the entire studio allowing there to be a very small staff. I pictured a ton of employees and cameramen running around, but there was none of that whatsoever. Seeing all of the correspondents dressing rooms and the control room was so surreal. I could imagine my favorite celebrities sitting the the guest star rooms or in front of the green screen. 

Who knows? Maybe one day I'll be on your TV screen reciting "This is Raquel reporting live on ABC News!"

When You Lose a Stiletto...

In the dire situation of loosing just one beautiful almond, six-inch, chunky heel stiletto, just save yourself the agony and buy a new pair. That's what happened to me after a photoshoot in SoHo in the fall leaves where I must have left the right heel. My face was priceless when I got home that night and I realized that I only had one shoe in my garment suitcase. Anyway, the next day I went back to the store to re-purchase the shoes once again and it wasn't on sale this time which was such a bummer. The moral of that story is don't dwell on the problem because that only adds stress. The easiest thing to do is find the easiest solution that will satisfy you. There are much greater issues, so just make the small obstacles stress-free and let it go. The rest of the day? Don't worry, it was so much better! I can't wait to see some of the shots for my new comp cards.
