It’s been almost 4 years since you’ve seen me and a lot has changed. I am excited to share my life and catch up with you all. The first question I get is…”why did you leave?” Well…when Bravo asked me to return for Season 9, I was honored, but I knew inside I needed a break. Doug and I wanted to have another baby and I wanted to do that off camera. Believe it or not working on the show is kinda a “stressful environment” and that was not something I wanted to do while pregnant.
The time off was actually amazing. I had the opportunity to write a book about my life and lessons learned along the way. It’s called ‘Beyond Orange County: A Guide to Faith and Happiness. This was something I always wanted to do and it was a surreal experience to have it nationwide in Barnes & Noble. I felt like being on RHOC is such a big platform and it was an honor to get use my voice and share my faith. *Available at Amazon.com
In addition to my book, I starting a fashion and lifestyle blog…oclydia.com It serves as a creative outlet for me to share my love affair with fashion and what’s inspiring me at the moment. I also post about my family, struggles of a working mom and travel.
Lastly, last Fall Doug and I launched a new luxury magazine called NOBLEMAN. It’s a magazine for men that focuses on Style and Substance for the Modern Gentleman. You will see more of Doug and I working together this season, and the passion we both have for creating a positive platform to inspire people to live better and with purpose. We are so proud of the success it has seen in the short time we have launched.
In this episode you get to see a sneak peek into my family life. My boys are 8, 6, and 2. They are a lot of fun and obviously a big part of life. I love being a mom to three boys yet I’m constantly taking deep breaths, as my hands are very full. It was a special day to teach Maverick to ride his bike and now he’s very confident and rides around our block all the time.
