Over the last five years she has co-authored the book, <em>Style, Naturally</em>, co-founded the award-winning materials marketplace <a href="http://www.source4style.com" rel="nofollow">Source4Style</a>, served as a correspondent on Discovery Networks, and has designed environmentally-preferable collections with Payless, Portico and Modo eyewear. Broadening out from what we wear to what we eat, Oakes has been helping the <a href="http://www.goodeggs.com/nyc" rel="nofollow">Good Eggs</a> team build grassroots level community engagement to help grow and sustain local food systems. Most recently she launched <a href="http://www.sugardetox.me" rel="nofollow">SugarDetox.Me</a> to help guide people through a 30-day sugar detox journey; and will be releasing a new monthly inspirational podcast series called <a href="http://www.summerrayne.net/podcast/" rel="nofollow">IDEA NOSH</a> in early 2015.
