Roderick Campbell & Sylvia Tennant

Rod Campbell is the "man behind the brand" for Sylvia Tennant's Jewelry line Zaleska.

Not only is he all this, but he is an incredibly taltented rapper. Yep. I've heard him. He's damn good. 


This episode is a FIRST EVER of it's kind. I have on a MAN. Yes. A man. Not just any man. The man behind the Zaleska brand... Roderick Charles Campbell The First (his words). 

I LOVED this episode with Sylvia and Rod and am inspired to do more couple episodes because of it. The setting was their room in Ubud, Bali and the rain was pouring down.

Heather's has worked with brands such as Danielle Laporte, L’oreal: Redken, Gabrielle Bernstein and more.
