Network television did not receive a lot of nominations this year. This may be the time for television to reevaluate the future shows. 

The big film snub is Mary Poppins for the best original song. This was expected to top the nomination. Paddington film did not receive one nomination. Ryan Gosling’s performance in First Man was not recognized with a nomination for best actor. First Man left out of best director and best drama.

Dream Angels Fantasy Bra

Dream Angels Fantasy Bra

Dream Angels will be spotlighting the fantasy bra this year. Victoria’s Secret (VS) Angel Elsa Hosk will be wearing the $1,000,000 bra this season in New York City.

Elsa Hosk Fantasy Bra 4Chion Lifestyle
Angel Elsa Hosk Fantasy Bra

Elsa Hosk Wearing Fantasy Bra

Elsa Hosk is a 29 year old Swedish model. She did spend time playing basketball in Sweden. Her  modeling career includes Dior, H&M, and Guess to name a few. Hosk began modeling at the age of 14 in Sweden. She moved to New York and signed with IMG Models. Her modeling with VS began in 2011. Hosk officially announced as an angel in 2015.

She is honored to wear this fantasy bra because of the glitz, shimmer, and shine. Her makeup will compliment the glamorous bra.

Creating the Fantasy Bra

This year’s fantasy bra is by Atelier Swarovski. It has 2,100 Swarovski Diamonds and topaz that is responsibly sourced. It is a sterling silver cage. The body chain is comprised of Topaz with the center stone being a pear shaped 2.03 carat Atelier Swarovski Created Diamond. This bra took 930 hours to create the hand set bra. It has over 71 carats. 

This is tied with Claudia Schiffer’s fantasy bra in 1996 (the first year for the runway) for 1 million dollars. The most expensive fantasy bra is Gisele Bündchen 2000, Red Hot Fantasy Bra at $15 million.

This year, for the first time, a similar fantasy bra will be open for purchase on Nov. 29, 2018. It will have Swarovski crystals for $250 at select Victoria’s Secret locations.

Chocolate Scrumptious and Delicious

Chocolate Scrumptious and Delicious

Chocolate is a scrumptious addition to any meal. From appetizers, to main dishes, and especially desserts. Road tripping across the US we found some exceptional chocolate treats and so much more.  

Lagomarcino’s Confectionery

Lagomarcino’s Confectionery in Moline IL is worth a diversion on any road trip. It is operated by 4th generation of Tom Lagomarcino Sr. They received a James Beard Award in 2006.

This 110-year-old soda shop is a true find in the middle of nowhere. They have the true old-fashioned feel. The have a soda counter, sandwich shop, homemade ice cream, and beautiful chocolates. The originals owners meet at a soda shop and married in 1949. They had six children and they were famous for their fudge sauce. The shop started reselling the fudge sauce with their 100-year anniversary.

Taking my father here was such a treat. He recalled the stories of going to soda shop his uncle owned as a child. He talked about Ironport soda, a Utah tradition. It is a cross between root beer and Caribbean spices. He went for the hot fudge sundae (a surprise at the bottom was more fudge).

I went for their famous chocolate shake. We took salted caramel milk chocolates, dark marble truffle, pumpkin fudge chocolate, coconut dark chocolate, tiramisu dark chocolate truffle, and orange peel for the road. A few went home to mother. 

The decor in the store is old newspaper headliners. Handcrafted mahogany booths to enjoy your sandwich, soda, and dessert. The had beautiful marbled truffles. It was a true sensory experience with the sights, sounds, and smells. They were fabulous. 

Sweet Shoppe Candy Store Flagstaff AZ

Exploring Route 66 in the infamous town of Flagstaff AZ there is the Sweet Shoppe Candy Store. This fudge shop with a lollipop garden, taffy, homemade fudge, covered apples with a vast variety, and scrumptious chocolates.

This store has many great old-fashion fun with a great modern twist. It is located on 15 E Aspen Ave right off Route 66. They have so much to select from. Foodie Ellie had a big interest in the fudge but went with a sprinkled covered marshmallow.

They have homemade gelato. The chocolate is creamy and sweet. The best was the chocolate covered caramel (homemade there) with sea salt sprinkled on top.   

Kilwins Chocolate Wilmington NC

This is a must stop when visiting Wilmington You can smell the sweetness down the street. This is just the start of the sensory experience provided. When entering the story your eyes are drawn to all the beautiful handcrafted chocolates and sweets. Located in the Historic Downtown. Ice cream is a popular treat in Wilmington. Kilwins makes bomb waffle cones, exceptional chocolates, and it is worth the wait.

They make their own ice cream from their original recipe with 40 premium, unique and delicious flavors including Mackinac Island Fudge. They use local farms for ingredients. The chocolate creations are amazing.

Todd Barrow ~ Sharing Music One Note At A Time

Todd Barrow ~ Sharing Music One Note At A Time

Todd Barrow’s passion is music and he wants to share it one note at a time.  He enjoys writing, producing, recording and releasing music for airplay. 

Barrow’s Music Background

Barrow began his music interest at a young age. The interest in music started with his mother encouraging and influencing him. The first instrument is learning the piano. His mother’s encouragement is important today. Encouragement leads him to love all aspects of music.

Born and raised in Texas the country music seems to be a natural. Barrow took an adventure around music genre before becoming a country music performer. He states, “I began in my younger years doing gospel then it was pop. I landed on country music because it paints the best picture I feel in music.” When listening to Barrow’s music you hear a blend of different genres with a center country music.

Todd Barrow Music 4Chion Lifestyle
Todd Barrow Music
Barrow’s Influences

Favorite musicians, who are true writers and performers. Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, and Ronnie Milsap. These musicians have a level of commitment to their craft are not afraid to be the change in country music!

The opportunity to work under the collaboration with close friends of Charlie Pride results in Live The Dream with TMG label in 2014. Many performers influence his goals and music.

Charlie Pride, he states,  “is a great man. He has stuck to his roots and this inspired me to get involved with country music. Mutual close friend Sonny Burgess has been tremendous influencing my career as well. He is about giving back to charities with our talents.”

Barrow’s Charity Work

The value of being involved with community and giving back is a strong belief for Barrow. He works with Cook Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House (RMHFW) in Fort Worth. 

These remarkable organization helps families in need while children are healing. RMHFW offers a supportive home for families dealing with seriously ill children. He collaborates to write and produce a song for RMHFW. The song, “The House That Love Built” helps raise awareness and funds for the organization.

Barrow’s Music

“Persistence is the keyword. I would also add an attitude of never giving up, he advises.” The music industry is many long hours on the road and sacrifices. 

Combining genres often heard in his music. He decides what
combinations will work with the story he is telling, from a quote by Willie Nelson, “it best all you need is three chords and the truth now you have a country song.”

Keeping this schedule up is motivated by the thrill of entertaining an audience keeps him going. A strong commitment to the vision of great music in today’s society.

Barrow’s Songs

The approach to his music is storytelling. The song is not just words but a story. Portraying every line, the stories, and the people with a sincerity that comes from the heart is in the music.  

A favorite song with 4Chion Lifestyle conveys being in the Bayou, Love in The Big Bayou,. Listening to the song you gain a visual of the Bayou and life. He says, “This was a great song for me to record. A visit to the Florida Keys and deep Louisiana sparked the interest to covey this story.”

The one song that the story just seems to connect to life not just for you but your listeners as well is he states, “I would say the one song is, Guadalupe River. A true story on a quick weekend trip to the crazy river in Texas. Everyone loves this tune!”

Barrow’s Family

His family is a blessing and he cherishes his three children, Joshua, Hannah, and Noah. He met his wife at a Christmas holiday event with Charlie Pride performing at Cook Children’s Hospital.

Empire State Building

Empire State Building NYC

The building that I had seen in films comes to life today. Entering the lobby I see the beauty of the original interior.  This lobby is a historic landmark by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The lobby’s recent restoration took 18 months to complete. It is an art deco design resembling the original design. The interior is marble, 24-karat gold and aluminum leaf with a large clock, gears, regional map, and a replication of the Empire State Building. There is a rush of people following through the lobby please stop a moment to look around at the details.

Moving through the process to get to the 86th floor you explore the history, the details about the building’s sustainability, and the 80th floor a Dare to Dream exhibit. This is a great experience. Walking the last few flights of stairs to the 86th floor was a lot of fun.

Reaching the 86th floor I am breathless, from climbing the stairs and looking over NYC. It is crowded and people are speaking in many languages. It is amazing to finally be here and see the vastness of the land, water, and buildings. You can see the city below and really don’t hear the commotion. The beauty above is amazing as you look up to see the rest of the building and the blue sky with clouds. It is an experience to not miss while in Midtown NYC.

Midtown is the history, fashion, and food of NYC. It is such a wonderful place to explore. The top tourist attraction is within walking distance. The LOVE statue is one of many found around the world. This was first created for print by Robert Indiana.

The love of community is found as I stroll the streets. The beautiful churches, Central Park, and shopping bring NYC home. The families pushing their strollers, skateboarders, and tourist head to Central Park. The park has statues, the  Great Lawn (the world-famous lawn), and vendors. It is a wonderful place in the center of town.

There is so much in this area from Radio City Hall, Rockefeller Center, and fashion. It is like a fashion runway down Madison Ave. You find the top fashion designer shops with exceptional windows displaying the latest fashion. I venture in an Uber through Time Square. It is fun seeing the hustle and bustle that is Time Square from the car. The Uber takes me to FDC Young Designer Fashion show at The Paul Hotel. This is a quaint fashion event.

The evening concludes watching the full moon rise over the high rises. It is a wonderful experience to be on therooftop of the hotel and just be still for 20 minutes. It is a perfect trip.

This quaint Asian Fusion restaurant is next door to my hotel, Pod 51, in Midtown New York. Thankful for this find after being delayed at the airport. The restaurant is full of large parties enjoying an order your favorite roll and share mine. I can hear them discussing what they like about each other’s choices. That is a fun way to enjoy a menu.  The decor is transforming, and fitting for the theme. The menu is filled with a variety of traditional Asian and fusion dishes like Singapore thin rice noodles. Enjoyed steamed veggie dumplings, salmon roll, and mermaid roll. The sauce on the plate is sweet, sour, and a little heat. The food is fresh and elegant.

Milk Bar NYC

I am excited to try crack pie and coffee for breakfast. This is a planned find in NYC. Watching Chef’s Table on Netflix. I knew I needed to try Milk Bar. This is Christine Tosi’s and is part of the Manhattan-based Momofuku restaurant. This is my first stop in the morning. The little shop has great cookies, cakes, pies, and bagel bombs. I order an iced coffee, bagel bomb with spinach, and crack pie. The bagel bomb warm and filled with spinach and cheese. It is a nice bite for the start of touring NYC.  I save the crack pie for a little later, but it is delicious. The filling is something like a custard, but buttery. The oat crust is light and flaky. This is a must stop and see.

The little find during the day is Market Pizza. It is a small little shop off 6th ave. It is $2.99 for two slices of pizza and soda. This is a great place for a traditional New York pizza. It is good, friendly, and always ready. They have a variety of pizzas. There is a small communal area to sit to eat your pizza before heading back on my NYC adventure. Always fun to explore these great places.

Pescatore NYC

Walking Midtown after a day of exploring and the fashion event I am overwhelmed with the choices near the hotel. The restaurants’ selection vast and enticing aromas. The dilemma is decided as rain begins to fall. I wonder into Pescatore. It is a traditional setting with the seasonal tulips on each table. My waiter is Bryan Royas. He is very informative about the menu and attentive.

It is a really amazing experience to see spaghetti Carbonaro prepared tableside. This dish is pancetta, onions, pecorino cheese & egg mixed in a Parmigiano wheel. The family sitting near me order this dish. There is something about seeing the food prepared tableside. The smells, sounds, and visual bring anticipation.

I enjoy pasta ripiena, warm bread, with Bousquet Mendoza Argentina Malbec, and dessert. The staff that brings me zeppoles with fruit dipped in brandy. The ripiena is homemade pasta sheet stuffed with fresh spinach, ricotta, topped with tomato sauce and crispy parmigiana. The homemade pasta is delectable and the tomato sauce fresh. The dessert is light and sweet the vanilla, chocolate, and raspberry sauces. The raspberry sauce is my favorite brings a little tart to the sweet. The fruit with the brandy is scrumptious.

Loved the 48 hours in Midtown and look forward to returning. It is a wonderful exploration. What are your favorite places in Midtown? Post your answer and photo #4ChionStyle here.
