Introducing New Haute Living Team Members

In case you haven’t noticed, is growing. We launched the newly revamped site back in September, and ever since we have been taking steps to reach our goal of being the premier online source for information about all aspects of the luxury lifestyle. We are constantly adding new contributors and features to our lineup. From “Haute Timepieces” by Haute Living Watch Editor Ariel Adams, who covers the finest watches in the world (Mondays), to “Haute Properties” by Ann Brenoff, a former LA Times columnist who covers celebrity real estate (Wednesdays), to weekly posts by Raylene Bartolacci, a model/actress who knows what it takes to be haute and covers health and nutrition (Wednesdays), to “Haute Investing” by Derek Hoffman, an editor for Wall Street Cheat Sheet (Fridays), to actress Rachel Heller, who reports on a host of topics throughout the week, we are building up a roster of all-stars in a slew of industries who not only write about the luxe life but actually live it.

Today, we are proud to announce the addition of two new members of our team: Michael Herklots and Sandra Sanchez. Michael is an expert in the cigar world, and his weekly column “Out of the Humidor” will discuss the very best offerings in the industry. You may already be familiar with Sandra; she launched her own site in 2008, which grew into a source for discriminating eco-shoppers. Each week, she will be sharing her choices for the “Top Five orGLAMic” items in a slew of categories.

Their first columns posted this morning, so be sure to check them out. If you click on their names, it will bring you to their personal Haute Living page, which will archive each of their posts (the same goes for any of our online contributors). Please join us in welcoming Michael and Sandra to the Haute Living team. If there are any topics in the luxury realm that we are not yet covering on, we welcome your suggestions—or any other feedback—either in the comments section or via email to
