#ModernMuse: Lifestyle Blogger Andrea Graye
The first time you visit fashion and lifestyle brand GrayeNote.com, you can’t help but feel the energy and enthusiasm of its Founder and Editor-in-Chief Andrea Graye. This New York-based fashion stylist has a flair for making all things in a woman’s life, from wardrobe to the kitchen, that much lovelier – and in a fun way!
Andrea also has multiple sclerosis, which, according to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, “is a chronic, unpredictable disease of the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves.” While this has challenged her physically, she has not let it affect her indomitable spirit. Even after her most recent health episode, which forced her to take a brief hiatus, Andrea picked up right where she left off. Motivated “by the idea of helping, loving and supporting women” through her God-given talents, she not only continued to write and shoot videos for the site – she launched the Graye Note podcast, available on GrayeNote.com or iTunes, soon after. It’s why we chose Andrea for this week’s feature and say to our latest Modern Muse, “UGauGrrl!”

Every season since 2002, thousands of singing hopefuls sang their hearts and lungs out for a chance to be the next American Idol. This dream was no different for teen Rhea Raj. This New York City denizen actually made it to Hollywood for the farewell season this past January! Even though circumstances kept her from advancing to the finals, Rhea saw this opportunity as a stepping stone and a beautiful part of the longer story that she’s been crafting since she first began her blossoming singing career.
