A few weeks ago I had an amazing shoot with photography Paul Buceta. We were shooting possible covers for an upcoming book that will be announced later! The theme of the shoot was very clean and fresh with strong body silhouettes and clean lines (hint, hint)! I can't tell you anymore though!

We shot at Paul's new studio. It's open and airy and fabulous. It was the perfect setting for my wonder team of book designers Gabriella Caruso Marquez, Jessica Pensabene, Brian Ross and Ellie Jeon, my stylist Rachel Matthews-Burton, my social media expert and videography Amanda Tucci, and my makeup artist and hair dreamgirl Valeria Nova!

There was lots of silliness, but also lots of seriousness and we shot some magical pictures. 13 looks to be exact!

My favorite look was a beautiful hot pink Herve Leger bandage dress. Delicious!

For lunch we ordered in roasted chicken and salad from Swiss Chalet. This is a favorite spot for me and my husband Robert. We love the roasted chicken.

Throughout the day we rocked out to a lot of Lady Gaga and then randomly the classic Jann Arden song "Good Mother" came on. In that moment it really hit me how transformed my life is, and I lost it for a moment up there on the stage in the lights.

It was a very long day, but so rewarding because we were so productive! You can see more picture from the shoot here.

Have a Great Day!

Hi Tosca - love the pink outfit and lilac top pictures. I can't wait to read your new book.

I have a blog post suggestion...can you maybe post a completely random days food diary? You used to post your food diary pre-competition a while back and I kind of miss that on your blog.
