What is your favorite family tradition?

We place great value on traditions in our family, especially in the last months of uncertainty, when we need rituals and comfort more than ever. Something we’ll be missing this year is our annual tradition of gathering around the holidays to wrap gifts and decorate cards for families in need with our friends at Good +. Instead of this personal tradition, we will donate essentials to families who are suffering from food insecurity and unstable housing.

Lately we’ve gotten really interested in cake baking just because. My mom owned a bakery in NYC for many years, which meant I never learned how to bake because I just relied on her to make me the tastiest cookies in the world. Now that I’m a mother of two and we’re basically home all the time, baking (especially from Odette Williams’ lovely Simple Cake book) has brightened up even the most stressful homeschooling days.

About the author

Born and raised on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Violet worked as a magazine editor, stylist, and writer for 15 years before deciding to set up on her own. Before Violet was bitten by the fashion bug, she was convinced that she wanted to be an actress. After attending Goodfellas, she quickly realized that her favorite part of the process wasn’t acting in front of the camera, but the costume set that she was allowed to participate in. From then on, Violet was on a clear path to a career in fashion. After graduating from college, she started working as a fashion assistant at Shape, where she eventually became the senior fashion editor and traveled the world (Alaska, Bora Bora, New Zealand) creating fashion features and covers. Then in 2006 she went to start a digital fashion magazine called VIV. From then on, she became Lucky’s first online fashion editor. Then to Elle.com, where she was Senior Fashion, followed by InStyle.com, where she handled all of the fashion content for the website. After years of juggling her full-time job and side project, the maternity side and the The Glow brand, Violet left the fashion industry to become a full-time entrepreneur. She lives with her husband (film curator) David, their seven-year-old daughter Plum and their two-year-old son Rome on the Upper West Side and in Amagansett.
