Recently I had the honor to attend Mount Sinai’s annual Celebration of Life Gala here in the city with special guests and breast cancer survivors, Betsy Johnson and Pat Battle. It was a beautiful event with empowering stories and I am grateful for the opportunity I had to celebrate life with such wonderful people.

The highlight of the night was being able to interview one of my all time favorite designers, Betsey Johnson! I had a one on one interview with her about her story and life. When I asked her what would be one piece of advice she would give to women going through breast cancer she said, “Just keep on dancing!” Being a dancer myself, I loved her advice. Her whole outlook when she had cancer was to act as if nothing was wrong and keep living her life. I really admire her for that. She didn’t let cancer bring her down, and in the end she beat it. I believe her sweet spirit and positive attitude helped her come out on top.

I was also able to meet Betsey’s daughter Lulu (pictured above), who I loved! Both Betsey and her daughter were so nice and sweet. I really enjoyed talking with them.Such inspiring women!

    It’s a fact that twitter is such a strong tool in the social media circles. If you want to be famous or you want to advertise your products online, you should consider doing so using twitter. Buying twitter followers is common place in modern times. When buying the followers, you should be cautious of sites selling the followers at extremely high prices. This is because such sites will be ripping you off. Twitter followers are usually cheap; therefore, you should not pay high prices for them. To buy the followers all you need to do is to research and identify reputable sites. How to buy twitter followers
