Cooking In Heels Event Recap

Last week I cooked and worked out in heels with Bloomingdale's Culinary Specialist Sajal Hamilton and Fashion Expert Dawn Del Russo at our Cooking In Heels Event. Bloomingdale's hosted the event in the home section of their Short Hills store.  As Sajal whipped up delicious savory entrees for the guests to indulge in Dawn Del Russo shared the perfect stocking stuffers while I demonstrated my high heel workout!  Take a look at the video and images below to get a sneak peek inside the event.
