Episode 8 of Hip New Jersey

 
Hey #HipNJ! Episode 8 of Hip New Jersey features celebrity designers, goat yoga, a behavioral health fundraiser, and a tour of The Gathering Shops!
 
Lisa Marie Latino was delighted to speak with Christian Siriano who has had the pleasure of working with celebrities such as Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and Lisa Marie’s favorite singer, Kelly Clarkson! They spoke together at #TheGatheringShops which is a collection of designer brands, curated by Anna Maria Sandegran. Brands featured at #TheGatheringShops include the following:
 
Fun Socks: a trendy sock brand made for all styles including leisure, business, parties and anything in between!
Digmi: A dream-chasing, confident, lifestyle brand founded by Ray “Digmi” Navarrete, a New-Jersey raised, former professional baseball player.
Nina Jarebrink: “a favorite among top stylists and edgy celebrities who all love the tailored elegance and demure sexiness of her clothes and accessories.”
 
Lisa Marie also interviewed Aisha from Aisha RTW in the #HipNJ studio. They discussed her ‘ready-to-wear’ brand which is “about celebrating life and inviting people to take part in this celebration of life and all it offers.” The Aisha brand features women’s ready-to-wear dresses, capes, coats, handbags and scarves.
 
Lisa Marie spoke with Kristin Broek and Taryn Lagonigro, owners of Iris Mind and Body in Cedar Grove, about their company and the latest craze hitting the fitness industry…goat yoga! Their quirky goat yoga activity was started as a way to make yoga fun and exciting for newcomers. This activity sounds like a great a way to unload some stress and venture out of your comfort zone! 
 
#HipNJ also was in attendance for the Trinitas Health Foundation’s #PeaceOfMind event, which benefitted renovations to the Behavioral Health Facility at Trinitas Medical Center. The evening featured Congressman Patrick J. Kennedy and Journalist Jack Ford as guest speakers. It was very nice to be a part of such a great cause!
 
You’ll be able to watch on HomeTowne TV, NJ on AIR or on HipNewJersey.com.
 
Happy Holidays!

Kelly Clarkson Debuts New Book at Wyckoff YMCA

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino recently helped welcome Grammy Award-winner Kelly Clarkson and her debut children’s book to the Garden State!

Books, Bytes & Beyond of Glen Rock, in partnership with the Wyckoff Family YMCA, recently hosted Kelly for a moderated conversation about River Rose and the Magical Lullaby, an enchanting picture book that chronicles the night before an imaginative little girl’s first trip to the zoo. The book was inspired by her own daughter, River Rose.

“I’ve always dreamed really big,” explained Kelly to the adoring crowd.  “I think you have to be that confident and know you are capable of [achieving your dreams.]  If you don’t think you’re awesome, no one else is going to think you’re awesome…and I definitely think I’m awesome!”

After the discussion, over 400 fans got to meet and greet with Kelly while getting their River Rose books signed!

“She’s just great,” gushed Jennifer Sauer, director of cultural events at the Wyckoff YMCA. “I love what she had to say tonight. She is inspiring, she’s talented, she’s fun, and we feel really lucky to have her here at the Y.”

A Kelly Clarkson project wouldn’t be complete without her American Idol-winning voice, so naturally, River Rose comes with an original lullaby written and performed by Kelly herself! Fans at the book signing were treated to a surprise a cappella rendition of the song.

“It’s INSANE how great her voice is live. Other singers, they get Auto-Tune, but she’s so real and I love that about her,” exclaimed Julie from Oradell.
