Pictures in the Mirror

Do you ever do this? Take a picture of yourself to see what your make-up, outfit, or hair looks like from a different angle. I did this on Saturday night when we were going to a lovely dinner in Portofino and I was trying a touch of red lipstick and my new favorite blue blouse. I wish my hair looked like this everyday, preferably when I wake up.

Found Online

I just discovered this 1960's TV special that Grace Kelly hosted. It's full of shots of Monaco, cheesy 60's songs in French and some terrific fashion. My favorite part is the performance by Francoise Hardy, ( I believe it's in part 4), Enjoy!

Inside scoop from Janie Bryant...

My Favorite Fragrance

This is my go-to perfume. I would best describe it as smelling well, like me. If my personality had a smell, it would be the following:
"Burberry Brit is a fragrance that keeps the tradition but with a modern sound, it brings the English irony and English dignity. It opens with fresh notes of green lemon, frosted pear and white almond. The heart blooms with white peony. The drydown is very gourmand with vanilla, amber, mahogany and balsamic Tonka bean accords.
Main Accords: vanilla, fruit, almond, critus.

I LOVE This Show

The fashion is outragous. If you keep watching you will be treated to the palm tree and the pineapple...a little tease!!

MCA

  It's a strange feeling when a celebrity dies that you have actually met. I spent a half hour with MCA from the Beastie Boys when they came to Sundance in 2006 with their film Awesome, I F**king Shot That. I had to give him a tour of the Library Theatre before the showing so he knew where to go, where to sit, and where to leave to get into his black Cadillac Esclade that was waiting for him at the side of the building at the secret door. I didn't tell him that I've been a fan since I was in 6th grade and that I saw the Beasties live in concert at the Salt Air in Salt Lake City about a hundred years ago. I refrained and tried to be professional. Oh, don't worry I said plenty of other embarrassing things instead but thats another story. I'm just glad I have these memories of MCA.

Zum Zum Zum (The Italian Version of Zou Bisou Bisou)

What is it about the 60's and making up nonsense words in songs? While the French were singing Zou Bisou Bisou the Italians, namely Mina, were singing Zum Zum Zum... Does it get stuck in your head the same way?
