My hope is that OC Lydia would be a source of inspiration and fashion…and all things girlie. I want to connect with people and encourage them to feel beautiful in their uniqueness. I am a designer, author and magazine editor, but most proud of my role as a wife and mother. I have three young boys; Stirling, Maverick and Roman. I love being a mom and my boys are my whole life. I also work with my husband, Doug. We own and publish a luxury men’s magazine called NOBLEMAN. We have been married for over 11 years and love to travel and experience new adventures together.
I have been a Christian for over 20 years and my faith plays a huge role in my life. In 2012 I joined the cast of Real Housewives Orange County and was very vocal about my beliefs. I decided to take a break from the show to have our third son, but am back for Season 12 of the show and am excited to use the platform the show gives me for good. I have grown up in the television industry from my childhood in Newfoundland, Canada, and feel right at home in front of the camera.
I know the importance of balance with a busy schedule. As a fashion magazine editor for over 9 years, I have been fortunate to work with many designers, stylists and fashion brands and I want to take that knowledge and share it. I have my own handcrafted jewelry line, and have written my first book inspired by scripture and my faith in Jesus Christ, Beyond Orange County.
