#NoFurBan: Protecting Our Business

Today, the Reich Furs team made signs and went to City Hall to fight the ban of selling fur products in NYC.ย Not only is Reich Furs a family business that goes back generations, but it is also a company that is full of hard working individuals that deserve the right to work in the industry that they are passionate about.ย  Let's look at the facts. Fur is a highly regulated and sustainable industry. Faux fur is horrible for the environment and made with plastic. Are they banning leather? Are they banning meat? No. Just fur.

Mom Like A Boss

I am the proud mother of two amazing young boys, Jake is 8 and Nicky is 11. It was never my plan to be a mother. I started my career young, so once I established myself and felt satisfied, I knew it was time to add more love and substance to my life. Growing up, I had the most loving, giving and strong mother.

She will feel like she can walk the red carpet. She will feel like she is walking on air. Like all eyes are on her and she is the fashion queen of the night....

Voting...

Yesterday was Election Day for the midterms. I am usually not very involved in politics but yesterday was important to me and to the US. Women were only giving the right to vote less than 100 years. 1920 was the year (I looked it up because I was curious and didn't know the day). 98 years ago we were allowed to vote for the first time. That is not that long ago. Only 2 or 3ย generations ago. Voting is powerful. Your voice being heard is powerful. Strong women banding together is powerful. It isn't so much as to what you are voting for as much as it was that you were voting. I was so happy to see so many...
