Modern Woman Doing Great Things: Tanya Zuckerbrot

Tanya, wearing Diana, is a Registered Dietician, CEO and founder of F-Factor, a rapidly growing health and wellness brand that is revolutionizing the weight loss space.

FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT?  

My favorite local hangout in NYC is Le Bilboquet. It’s a perfect lunch spot with my girlfriends or a fun dinner with couples. They just opened in Palm Beach and I can’t wait to dine there an support them.

SECRET WEAPON? 

Fiber-it’s the secret to weight loss without hunger and has the most incredible health and lifestyle benefits. Fiber revs metabolism, keeps you feeling full for hours, pulls fat and calories out of the body and makes for a healthier gut.

SECRET WEAPON? 

CURRENT BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

Debating when to re-open the F-Factor office. Because of Covid, my office has been working remote and while we’ve transitioned successfully, there’s nothing like working together in person. We’re eager to get back, but want to ensure everyone is able to safely and comfortably.

WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU?

Trish McEvoy. Not only is Trish an entrepreneur who turned the company she founded into a household name but she is kind, generous and a big supporter of women in business. She’s a boss-and still beautiful on the inside and out.

Modern Woman Doing Great Things: Hel & Mel

Hel, wearing Ginger, and Mel, wearing Brooke, are besties and mums based just outside London in Surrey. They have great style and banter and, like us, met through their children but have bonded over their love of fashion.

FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT?  

RHS Wisley. It’s half way between us and we’ve been meeting there with our children since they were babies 11 years ago!

SECRET WEAPON? 

A glass of Pinot Blush and Chicken Caesar Salad. Never fails to make us happy!

CURRENT BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

Juggling life in lockdown! Homeschooling, husbands permanently home, keeping fit, but worst is not seeing each other.

WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU?

We struggled to decide on one woman because the women that inspire us are everyday mums! Single mums, working mms, step mums, grand mums, unwell mums, all doing what mums do: cooking, cleaning, listening, loving, teaching, healing, problem solving, supporting…raising the next generation of men and women to look after our world and one another.

Modern Woman Doing Great Things: Stefanie Bash

Stefanie, wearing Diana, is a personal shopper turned fashion influencer. She is based in NYC and created @eye4stylenyc in 2015 to show women how to create stylish outfits that are attainable with less expensive and independent brands. She loves high/low style!

FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT?  

Obviously before Covid I would have to say Cafe Luka on the Upper Eastside. It’s my favorite place to grab breakfast or lunch. It’s kind of like the Peach Pit from Beverly Hills 90210!

SECRET WEAPON? 

Fashion. Especially now during quarantine putting on a stylish outfit is a big mood booster when things seem so blah.

CURRENT BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

Balancing my personal time and mom time for my two boys. Especially these days when everyone is together so much it’s hard sometimes finding a happy medium between the guilt when I am focused on my needs and wants and then the frustration when it’s all about the kids. It’s definitely a constant balancing act!

WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU?

To me being a great mom is something I admire more than any other quality in a woman so I would definitely say my mom. She’s strong and loving and always has my back.

Blinc “Kiss Me” mascara and a good brow pencil.

Owning and operating a restaurant during Covid 19.

FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT?  

The vineyards and the castle close to my house.

I cannot do anything without sport, it strengthens my body and my mind.

All the women who manage to have a well balanced life between career and family and still find time to support others.

QUOTE YOU LIVE BY?

“The more you feed your mind with positive thoughts, the more you can attract great things in your life.”


Modern Woman Doing Great Things: Sophia Buloz

Sophia, wearing Sienna, in Beautiful Barcelona! Her mantra is to always be kind because you never know what hardships person could be facing. It’s wonderful that you can make a person’s day with just a smile.

FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT?  

The bar at the Majestic Hotel in Barcelona. They have great tapas and make a mean Bloody Mary!

SECRET WEAPON? 

My favourite books: knowledge really is power. Music which lifts my spirit more than anything and makes me feel empowered. Everything by La Mer, it’s like they love my skin. Two chains that I wear with my most beloved pendants and last but not least my perfume which is like a magical potion that everyone loves and relates to me.

CURRENT BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

Staying positive and motivated despite everything going on in the world with this global pandemic.

WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU?

My mother. She’s brave, smart, she has this wonderful sense of style and exquisite taste and she the kindest.

Modern Woman Doing Great Things: Marni Rosenthal

Marni, wearing Brooke, lives in LA. She is the mom of two girls and a former professional modern dancer.

FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT?  

When not in a pandemic, I love going to Stonehaus winery in Westlake for a glass of wine and some beautiful scenery! It’s a great outdoor place to meet for business or social gatherings.

SECRET WEAPON? 

It’s probably my charcoal mask by my facialist, Rachel Moayer skincare. It keeps my skin hydrated and even. If I get to say my second secret weapon, it’s my online Pure Barre classes and my Peloton!

CURRENT BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

Managing a hybrid working environment along with one child on Zoom, one in an in person school plus my work/life balance. I think that’s the number one challenge for pretty much all parents of school aged children right now. This year has truly tested our resilience and the human spirit. It’s just bonkers!

WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU?

This is so tough because I meet women every day who inspire me. Sara Blakeley, the creator of Spanx, comes to mind because her story is that of a hero’s journey. Her achievements came out of intelligence, perseverance, grit and as we say in the homeland, Chutzpah!

QUOTE YOU LIVE BY?

Anything written by Brene Brown is quote worthy. My favorite is ” If you’re not in the arena getting your a** kicked, I’m not interested in your feedback.”


Modern Woman Doing Great Things: Lori Traub

Lori, wearing Grace, lives in NYC and is the mother of two adorable children. Family first is a virtue she lives by. The chaos of life with little time to herself is what led her to start Myspa2go. Being a working mom in NYC, balancing life, kids and work wasn’t as easy as she anticipated it to be. She launched an on demand mobile spa company with the idea to have upscale beauty and wellness services provided safely in the convenience, comfort and privacy of home-because a little “me time” never hurts!

FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT?  

Zero Bond. It’s a new private members club that just opened on our block in NoHO, NYC. It’s super chic with great food and great people:)

SECRET WEAPON? 

Using my kids as an excuse to not be able to make certain deadlines, ha! In all seriousness, my ability to stay calm and positive throughout 2020. I have definitely had my moments but I quickly come around and look at the bright side of things and don’t put too much pressure on myself and my family.

CURRENT BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

Business wise, keeping both our customers and staff safe and happy. Having a team working for you and keeping them happy ensure the customer will ultimately have a great experience. Sometimes it’s tricky to work both sides but thats our overall goal that keeps our business thriving., especially during this pandemic where we really need to focus on keeping everyone safe!

WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU?

I would have to say my mother and mother in law. Both are incredible women who raised children during a time when answers weren’t available on the internet. They had to figure things out for themselves on raising us and life in general. They sacrificed a lot more than we do.

QUOTE YOU LIVE BY?

No sense in stressing over things you can’t control…which leads to my quote. ” Man plans, god laughs.”

Modern Woman Doing Great Things: Catherine Dobbs

Catherine, wearing Frida, is a Californian living in London with her husband, two boys and golden retriever, Stuart. You can always find her walking around Chelsea with a beautiful smile and her amazing dog!

FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT?  

Hyde Park! Our family has enjoyed the park on an almost daily basis since we moved to London. But we have an even greater appreciation for it in 2020/21! I try to get to the park everyday for some fresh air and exercise and love watching the season change and all the people watching is pretty great too!

SECRET WEAPON? 

Strong coffee!! And waking up early before the rest of my family. Having a little time (sometimes just a few minutes) to myself in the morning sets the tone for me to be more present and the day less hectic.

CURRENT BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

2020 was the year of curveballs! The biggest challenge for me is to have a good enough handle on my own “stuff” so that I can be a strong mother for my boys.

WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU?

Glennon Doyle. Her daily morning meetings on Instagram got me through lockdown last Spring. Those lead me to read more of her work (before Adele mentioned her!) I love her candor and life perspective. Asking myself “What would Glennon do?” helps me tune into what I want to do.

In London, Pavillion Road in Chelsea and the beachfront in my hometown of Limassol, Cyprus.

Friends who become family.

What we are living in now with the global pandemic-not being able to travel and be with our friends and loved ones for so long!
