Fall 2019 Bridal Trends, Published in Elegant Lifestyles Magazine, Part 1

Yay! The September issue of New Jersey Hills Media Group’s Elegant Lifestyles Magazine is out. I wrote “Fall 2019 Bridal Trends.” Why bridal, you ask? Back in the day (before triplets-plus-one), in addition to working in the Bloomingdale’s Training Program as a buyer and manager, I wrote free-lance articles. One of my gigs? Attending bridal fashion shows in Manhattan and writing about them. So fun! Click here to access the New Jersey Hills Media Group website where a PDF of the magazine can be downloaded.

Dedication: This post is dedicated to my mom who would have turned 78 tomorrow. She used to type up my “children’s books” when I was in elementary school and knew I loved to write. As an editor of The Baltimore Jewish Times, she was the first person to hire me to write, assigning me a variety of articles: first person, interviews, research. She was my first editor and a tough one at that. Think lots of red ink!

When I graduated college and moved to Manhattan, she hired me to cover events in Manhattan and write about them. From there, other magazines picked up my articles, and I was on my way. As I circled back to writing Kidlit, she was a reader and cheerleader. She’d say writing fiction was a whole other ball game. Regardless, she always listened and gave advice when it came to communicating with editors and agents.

Guess what Mom? I still need your advice…and a whole lot of cheerleading.
