I love all of our Alive & Well episodes but one of my favorites is our “Eco Friendly Fashion” episode. It’s special to me for many reasons. The first of which is because two of my friends were able to join me for our Eco Friendly Fashion show segment. Alexandra Paul (Baywatch) and Kerri Kasem were both able to be my guest for our fashion show. My special guest was Shannon Tweed Simmons (Simmons Family Jewels) and we surprised Shannon by having her daughter, Sophie Tweed-Simmons, be one of our celebrity models. Gorgeous fashions along with having my friends there made for an especially memorable episode!
In the same episode, our coverage of “Vision House” was my fantasy home! The home is near the beach and eco-friendly with a contemporary feel and design! It was great to see so much style along with energy savings, low water usage, the latest tech and all the newest green design trends!
Vision House is located in Pacific Palisades, California. It’s a LEED Platinum certified home (http://www.usgbc.org/cert-guide/homes), giving it the highest rating in eco-friendly building! It’s energy efficient and has great features. It has a living roof, drip irrigation and a multitude of sustainable features!
This home is also designed to save money! It has energy efficient lighting and appliances, solar panels, an in-garage electric vehicle charging station and a smart home system. It’s one of the leading green homes in country combining design and sustainability!
Crossroads is one of my favorite restaurants and it’s plant based and healthy! It’s also a big celebrity hang out. While eating there I have seen everyone from Pamela Anderson to “Big Bang Theory” cast members! As much as I love to create my own healthy recipes, trying the latest Crossroads dishes was a real treat.
Beauty is an area that is always a fun place to explore on Alive & Well. Celebrity dermatologist, Dr. Ava Shamban of AVA MD was kind enough to show us a celebrity beauty trend, Ultherapy! A red carpet must have, Ultherapy uses Ultrasound to shave years from skin. Plus, I was able to try the treatment for myself.
With four incredible segments, this was an episode to remember!
