I love making breakfast. I pick up fresh eggs and challah bread the night before from the Union Square Greenmarket and make up omelets and French toast for the kids.

We love being outside, so we head to Central Park to race our bicycles and stop to watch the street performers. Once we’ve tired ourselves we stop for authentic Gelatos at Grom from my hometown in Torino, Italy.

I don’t use a lot of makeup, but this is my go-to moisturizer. It gives me light coverage and sun protection, which is extremely important now that it’s getting warmer!

bio.jpgKara Ross’ jewelry design started at the age of 13, with a trip to Africa and a piece of native tourmaline. She created a square cut ring from the stone and surrounded it with diamonds set on an 18k gold band. She never lost the touch.

Now a Gemological Institute of America certified gemologist, Ross has spent five years designing elegant pieces with character and imagination. Prompted by a need for uniqueness and inspired by alternative materials such as marcasite, lava and chalcedony, Ross creates the types of pieces you would expect to find at a bazaar- with the luxury of a master jeweler.
