Collection of Monica Matocha designs
When you’re in one part of the entertainment business, it’s natural to be in other facets of it. Monica Matocha fills those roles well as a music artist, dancer and jewelry designer! A triple threat to the business., this savvy 20 year old has a hit song she wrote called “Impostor” that has garnered her over 100,00 views on Youtube and thousands of fans on Facebook. She has a unique voice and the ability to express herself without a filter. Not only can she bring us melodious vibes, she also makes jewelry!
Layering effect, Monica Matocha Jewelry
As a way to help fund her music career, Monica creates bracelets with the glam rock star in mind. She’ll have arm parties featuring her bracelets which showcase her love of fashion and bringing her own style for her look in the music business. A big part of Monica’s style is layering; she knows how to combine vintage and modern pieces in both her style and her music. Her latest novelties include lava beads, bone bracelets and contemporary bullet necklaces. Monica even puts her faith into her handmade jewelry, turning the traditional rosary chic. My favorite pieces are the Black Cross bracelet and the bullet necklace which can both add that glam rock edge you desire!

I had the honor of attending the Taste Awards on Thursday, January 12th. Held at the Egyptian Theater, this awards show celebrates the best in food, fashion and home programs on TV, radio and online.
The event featured an exciting lineup of celebrity presenters including the Food Network’s Carrie McCully, Tanya Holland, Manouschka Guerrier, and Candice Kumai, Bravo TV’s Fabio Viviani, Nyesha Arrington, and Danielle Keene, Public Television’s Joanne Weir and Nathan Lyon, ION TV’s Michelle Harris, food broadcast gurus Bobby Bognar, Zuzy Martin Lynch, and Susan Irby, plus food and drink humorists Zane Lamprey and Jolene Sugarbaker.
There were 23 categories for winners and the show went pretty fast. It was full of laughter, heartfelt speeches by the winners, and lots of women wearing sequins. Afterwards there was a reception in front of the historic theater with tasty bites such as quinoa and red beet salad from Essential Nourishment, gourmet ruben sandwich and sweets from Shoop’s European Deli and cheese from Satori.
The Man in the Hot Pink Suit also accompanied me to the event and we met several of the winners and nominees of the evening including Hannah Hart of “My Drunk Kitchen”, Jolene Sugarbaker The Trailer Park Queen and Debi Mazar and Gabriele Corcos of “Extra Virgin”.
