American Lifestyle Magazine

American Lifestyle magazine has been celebrating the flavor and flair of life in the United States for over ten years. However, these articles take us to such beautiful places that words don’t do it justice—which is why we are proud to roll out the latest platform for American Lifestyle entertainment: American Lifestyle TV, hosted by Tonja Walker.

American Lifestyle Television gives us a glimpse into celebrity life as host Tonja Walker travels to the desert city to catch up with her former General Hospital castmate, Tristan Rogers, and his wife, Teresa.

Go with Tonja to meet Suzanne Eblen, owner of The Old Lucketts Store in Leesburg, Virginia. This is the perfect place to let your imagination run wild. People as far away as Paris talk about Lucketts Store Antiques and thousands flock to the property for its monthly flea markets.  Visitors take home little pieces of history, learn new decorating ideas, while always having a great time. You can even turn someone else's junk into your own masterpiece as Tonja learned from the experts there! Checkout Suzanne's design house and her incredible B&B, which displays her truly inspiring designs.

Norman Rockwell produced over four thousand original works during his career, and a significant number of these works are now held in the Norman Rockwell Museum.

FLAG FOR HOPE

Marcos Antonio is a visionary, magnificent artist, a philanthropist, and a film maker. During my interview for ALTV we focused on his project called The Flag for Hope. The Flag for Hope is a portion of what Marcos is creating, which is the largest canvas ever made entitled Impressions of Humanity. The goal of Marcos in doing this canvas is to get a physical impression of people from every country in the world as well as a small video designed to immortalize all people from around the world. The portion that represents the United States is nine feet by five feet and is a replica of our flag completely created by hand prints from people in America.  The stars on the flag have been designated to be created by noted American heroes.  What better place to obtain these impressions than at the Tribute Center in downtown Manhattan.  So on 9/11/2015 I was fortunate enough to be able to interview Marcos and observe several American heroes place their hand on the flag and tell their story to Marcos for his documentary.
