My first secret SPILLED

Dumplings, you've been very patient with my recent teases about fab news. I can finally share my first secret - I've been offered a column on Curbed National, the world's best interior design news aggregator. My first post is written and should go up later this week. I'll fill you in on more details in a day or so.

Michael Grimm Photography.

This is the woman who made it happen - my new boss, the stunning Sarah Firshein. I've been sending her love letters ever since Curbed National launched this past fall. She chose to see it as fan mail rather than calling the police. Thank you, Sarah!

Keep your dial tuned to La Lamp Shade (and Curbed National) for my column launch AND for two other thrilling bits of news. Oh yes, another not-to-be-believed opportunity landed in my inbox today. That makes THREE in two weeks!

Three is only the beginning. I hope you're ready for world domination. Raina will be a household name in no time flat, it will be Pantone's color of the year for 2012, and will most definitely be the numero uno name for little girls babies in the years to come. Are you ready?
