Non-Mutha F$*kin’ Factors, Middle-Aged Pregnancy Tests… What’s Next?

YES, honey! I loves me some Reality TV! Especially, my New York High Steppers and Basketball Baby Mamas/Jump-Offs. But this last week was a hum dinger. Royce was kicked out of the circle by ring leader, Shaunie. In her place, Suzie. A Miami Hurricane is a brewing bewteen BFFs, Evelyn and Jennifer, over Jennifer’s comments about Evelyn’s “fame whore-friend”, Ochocinco. And the new Trouble-Meeka on the block is gonna get hers… I can feel it. Speaking of feelin’ it, Sonja was definitely not feelin’ Cindy’s conference call in the middle of breakfast in Morgan’s kitchen. In most instances I’d give this a Totally Tacky. But in all fairness, Sonja received her in pajamas and cooked eggs in a toaster oven… Not exactly the Waldorf Astoria. And WTF is up with crazy eyes, Ramona? I KNOW this 53 year-old broad is not about to take a pregnancy test. What, the rabbit died laughing? I guess we’ll have to stay tuned for the finale to find out… Insert eye roll here…

Muah!

Stay Body Beautiful This Summer with SPF Fashion…!

Honey, it’s HOT outside! I’m not gonna even get into the global warming debate but it sure feels a lot warmer this year than last. Warmer days = beach weather = less clothing which can lead to sunburns, sun damage and skin cancer… YIKES! If you don’t yet realize you should be wearing a sunscreen on your face and body all year ’round you’ve probably been living under a rock. Better for you, actually, since that rock will protect you from the sun’s harmful rays. But the rest of know better. Sunscreens, sunless tanners and bronzers are my best friends this time of year. But now it seems I can also be fashionable with Broad Spectrum Protective clothing. Who knew the harmful UVA rays that cause damage and lead to cancers and melanoma can penetrate clothing? Well, now there are some fashionable options from Solartex for sun divas that offer a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating of 50+! Hello, Mr. Lagerfeld, any chance we could get this same technology in a Chanel caftan? I’m just sayin’!

Muah!

Briefs, Boards or Bikinis…?

The new millennium has brought about a new dilemma when it comes to summer fashion for men. It used to be that bikini season meant that millions of women all over the globe would begin dieting, exercising or whatever it took to make sure their bods were bikini, or at the very least one-piece, ready before the first major summer holiday. But oh how the tide has turned. The beauty era has spawned ever more beautiful women, many of whom look like their granddaughter’s younger aunts. As their numbers grew it became obvious that for men to even dream of having a chance with these perfectly toned specimens, they too had to get gorgeous. And the buck ain’t stopping with botox or bespoke suits… Show us what you’re workin’ with, fellas! Long story short; the lesser (ahem) one’s physical attributes, the more he should cover up. See ya at the beach!

MUAH!

Sassy Feet for The Summer!

You know you’re in South Orange County when the bling ain’t just on the ring! Whether it’s sequined caftans or rhinestone studded jeans, no other locale (except maybe South Beach) gets its bling on like the O.C. The lifestyle here is casual all year ’round but oh how we love to dress up even our yoga wear. But even the real housewives of Orange County know to draw the line when it comes to wearing crystal encrusted Choos for daily yoga lessons or running errands. Enter Sassy Clips! For about the price of a glass of Veuve Clicquot at Pelican Hill, you can grab yourself a pair of these turtle stunners to upgrade your flip-flops or thong slides. Ladies from Newport Beach to New Haven Connecticut and all points in betweenΒ  can now put a little pep in their summer step by slipping on any number of styles offered from this chic shoe accessory designer. BLING ON DIVAS!

MUAH!

Feeling A Little Shady This Summer…?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I finally embraced the High-Lo trend this summer. And I did it at, of all places, Neiman Marcus… GO FIGURE! South Orange County sun can be brutal this time of year. Especially in the canyons. But the over-sized style of these fabulous aviator options keep the sun at bay while helping to maintain divaD’s fashion Status. Gucci has been my go-to choice for YEARS; light in weight, chic, stylish and the wraps always seem to cradle my skinny little face, just right. But a recent fall off a horse had me re-thinking my desire to look that fantastic while riding. The only thing worse than falling is a broken pair of Gucci shades. Enter Carrera. At more than half the price of my favorite designer brand I can afford a back-up pair for riding lessons… And still look Front-Row Fashion!

MUAH!

Finally, My Cocktails Over Ice Get Some Respect!

 

My first trip to Paris to visit my favourite French friend was memorable for many reasons: a penthouse view of Notre Dame; shopping for my first Lancel bag; and waking at noon after a night and morning of partying. But perhaps the one memory that sticks in mind was from the first night when we dined at Buddha Bar. Before I could even look at the menu, mon petite Animale, looked me dead in the eye and warned me not to be picky. “This isn’t L.A.,” he scolded. “You can’t switch this for that; none of your picky bullshit! Don’t do it,” he challenged. Well, you know a diva never backs down from a challenge. I switched that for this and ordered a glass of white wine with ice. Much to his surprise no one scoffed. It seems I may have been early on a trend almost a decade ago. Now, none other than venerable Moet & Chandon has produced a Champagne to go over ice; perfect for this picky, non-conforming diva. In the words of my favourite New York Housewife, “Chic, c’est la vie!”

MUAH!
