Rock The Boat 2

So I’m taking tomorrow and the weekend offline and I’m giddy as hell about it. Have a glorious weekend and don’t be jelly. My life is rarely this carefree.

Tips for the perfect long weekend holiday:

  • Drink your signature cocktail all weekend – you deserve it!
  • Dress in breezy maxi dresses, anything sheer and havaianas.
  • Go for a natural look, wash hair, tie it in a bun then let it dry naturally – your waves will be killer – thanks Karen for that tip.
  • Create a Long Weekend menu and try a recipe using fresh produce from your local market – I’ll be chefing up cold eggplant stacks drizzled with olive oil and balsamic with fresh basil and love.
  • Enjoy an ice cream in a classic cone.
  • Head north, where the air is cleaner and the stars shine brighter
  • shut down your laptop, even if you stay in the city turn it off – explore your own surroundings and act like a tourist while you’re at it!
  • Own being lazy – if you have a DIY project or gardens you want to work on do it at a slow pace. And if you get distracted by cocktails or friends, who cares enjoy it.
  • Drink your signature cocktail..

Happy long weekend everyone!

This is what my car looked like this week…

This is me tomorrow…

This is what I will be looking at…

I will drown in this before I drown in the lake…

Rock the boat a little!

Happy May long weekend.

‘Hey There Santa’

‘Yo Santa….If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been working really hard at my career, my blog, writing, freelancing??… so maybe you could slip a little something nice under the tree? If red souls or Jimmy Choos are out of your price range I’d settle for cashmere anything? Or a Rudsak jacket with fur? Just sayin’.

Last week I was on set with the talented and lovely Danielle Bourjeaurd styling her new Christmas video ‘Hey There Santa’, in addition to working I also got to strut my stuff alongside Miss Bourjeaurd in the video – it was a blast being behind the camera, which you will see when you watch it!

So this weekend I’m getting in the Holiday spirit, I’m going to throw on my new favorite Christmas jingle, dance my as* off around the house decorating in shades of cream and gold and sip eggnog avec rum…..

Cheers to getting in the holiday spirit, and a little tipsy!

Check out the video and download the song at www.daniellebourjeaud.com, a dollar from each purchase goes to the Salvation Army – spread some holiday cheer peeps!

Happy (dance your as* off decorating around the house) Weekend!

Dress you up in my love….

”Let me cover you with velvet kisses
I’ll create a look that’s made for you…..’ – Madonna

Beyond the festive decorations, confectionery treats and cozy nights, I also love this time of year because it gives us that many more reasons to glam it up a little. Even if it’s simply painting your nails with some red polish or throwing on something sparkly,’tis the season that requests a little bash*. With a couple of Holiday parties on the schedule this week and next, I’m looking forward to getting dolled up and drinking a little bubbly.

Here are a few little numbers that captured my brown eyes……

Dress you up in my love....
I’m aware the flock of sequins in this collection is heavy, but really nothing starts a party like some sequins….or old school Madonna!

Lady O’ has left the building..

 

What do Classic sparkle Uggs, Spanx, panini-presses, and Ralph Lauren long sleeve cashmere sweaters have in common? If you answered with “shi*t your Mom loves” (okay and the rest of us), you’re not too far off.  These bits are all items on The Queen of talk shows favorite things. 

The lovely Oprah.  The goddess of goodness. The financial icon has left the building after 25 years.  What the f*ck are we going to do Mon to Fri at 4pm for the rest of our lives?  

With me being a busy career woman, I will be completely honest and divulge to you that Lady O” and I haven’t shared the same relationship since my career has taken off.  My 4pm time slot is divided between Oprah, work e mails,  the gym or preparing dinner.  Even if she’s not getting my undivided attention O’ is always present.  Either in the background, where intermittently I can hear her laugh, or when I’m sad and need ice cream and the company of someone equally feminine, and of course when I fake take a “sick day”….Oprah is always there.

Along with entertaining us, she also taught us how to dress better.  Some of my best-loved episodes cover fashion and style – Stiletto school , The revelation of Spanx, The Shoe, Handbag and Accessory Intervention, Oprahs favorite beauty products, The face behind the name: Christian Louboutin, and more recently her interview with Ralph Lauren.  She compelled many of us to recognize the importance of maintaining a sharp and tidy appearance, whatever weight she was she always looked put together, it was kinda her thing.

Thanks to the show I’ve learned a few fashion and style tips that will remain forever in my wardrobe and shopping routines, here’s to name a few:

  • If you haven’t worn it in 2 years, give it away – sister, bff people like free stuff!
  • Find a great hairstylist to maintain your tresses or haircuts – preferably a Wella professional
  • Every girl needs a great stiletto. Jimmy Choo, Louboutin, something –  Tell your husband Oprah said so, he’ll buy them for you!
  • If you love it, buy it twice, in the same or different colors – I’m totally guilty of this.  But it’s okay cause Oprah said it..
  • Buy something that you love to wear – if you love it, wear it, OWN it!
  • It is possible to wear makeup with a hectic life – Schedule it in honey, tinted moisturizer and lip gloss..nuff said
  • Spanx it if necessary – back rolls and muffin tops don’t need to exist in this day and age
  • Meditate
  • Live your best life – I abide by this everyday, my fabulous deities of being in my thirties…

Thanks Oprah.
