Shut Up??!!!

So if you didn't catch the news on Friday... Michael Vollbracht, Creative Director and fashion designer of Bill Blass, has left the building! The American designer collection brings fashion and style to classy and mature woman, while still bridging the gap of beauty for women of all ages. Vollbracht has more recently managed to make Bill Blass a more familiar name to younger women, with the well known and highly desired looks of Janet Jackson's red dress at the CFDA's, and Angelina Jolie's January cover of Vogue... and the launch of the new floral fragrance that's so perfect for the summer!

So what's next for the future of Bill Blass?? Well, we shall see... the announcement of the new line up is expected soon. However, the classic elegance of this collection is bound to live on!! As for Vollbracht, who knows... maybe he'll retire off to the countryside, and find peace in drawing and painting mother nature's more natural fashions.

Sun-Kissed and Stylish!

As we put a close to this Memorial Day Weekend, as most of us refer to as the unofficial start of Summer, I just want to share a few style tips and great summer fashions that I love! Great styles for the BBQ's that started this weekend, and will last throughout the season... to super cute swimwear and perfectly printed dresses! This summer is all about fashion... and all about fun! ...and don't forget your accessories!

Printed Everything is so fun and feminine for the summer, even if you normally stick to simple classics... especially a cute weekend dress...

we wear short shorts...

add a colorful bikini, or even a sassy one-piece!

A great top works well day or night...

...get your freak-um dress on!

And a fashionista must have fun accessories...

Add a great pair of sunglasses, and you're good to go!!

I hope you all continue to enjoy your holiday weekend... Have fun and travel safely! always, do it with Style, and seal it with a Kiss!

Toe-FU... A Refresher Course!

Damn it ladies... is this really necessary?

On my way to work this morning, I witnessed the most repugnant feet ever!! Blatantly disrespecting any and ALL codes of ethics, fashion and sisterhood among females everywhere... this woman had wite-out blotched (not painted... not that painting wite-out is OK! ...but DAMN!) onto her crusty, nasty toes!!

Ladies, there are a few realities that need to be faced here! It's sandal season ...It's HOT!! ...It's proven that unpleasant sights may stimulate immediate reactions of nausea and vomiting ...especially in the heat! Now I know you don't want anyone getting sick all over your brand new Choo's, just because you didn't get a pedicure!

As ladies, we are known to be compassionate creatures, PLEASE be a friend... PLEASE be a sister. Do not allow anyone, that you may ever be seen with (in your circle or not), to feel that it is OK to have crusty nasty toes! Completely Nude or Perfectly Painted! Those are your options ...that's IT!

For some of you, having presentable feet this season may be a lot harder than others. All that means is ... "By Any Means Necessary!!" Trust me, you'll feel a whole lot better!! Besides, I know you all got this memo many moons ago... be gentile with thy feet!

AND THEN... make that pedicure shine in these super cute and comfy gold sandals by Anya Hindmarch! it with Style, and seal it with a Kiss!


Although this blog will contain postings for family events and family matters, it is not intended for viewers of all ages! Some content and subject matter may be inappropriate for children! Get it? Got it... Good!!!

Now that we're all adults and on the same page... let's chat!


It's Fleet Week in NYC!!! Whoo-hoo!! It's time for you to thank the thousands of men and women who risk their lives everyday for us and for good ol' America!! A week of fun and excitement for children of all ages!!

Check out the ships, the helicopter demonstrations, the parades, the Navy flight simulators, the Navy band (I love the BAND!!!)... there's even a Job, Education, and Info fair!

All that, and a week full of sexy and confident men parading through the City that never sleeps! ...LADIES!!!! Need I say more?!!

May 22, 2007

you do it with STYLE, I'll seal it with a KISS!!

Karl Lagerfeld definitely knows style! With Chanel Line Cruise '07-'08 show, all of the stars were in full attendance to catch Fashion first-hand!! The models filed out of the private Chanel jets and onto the runway strutting cruise fashions as you've never seen before! Ooh La La!! ...Definitely gets my seal of approval! ...Mwah!

Ooops, she did it again!


OK... so of course, the notorious pop star still has a solid fan base, and there have been great reviews of her new House of Blues tour... aside from the fact that she LIP-SYNCED THE ENTIRE SHOW!!!

ENOUGH ALREADY, BRIT!! We're so over it! I was once a true fan, but right now...

ummmmm.... I don't think so! Go home, and take care of your FAS baby! (oh wait, that was mean, huh?) OK... let me rephrase that... Your children need you more than America does right now!

Lewis... Sparks...

...Better known as the IDOLS finalists!

The two-day season finale (starting @ 8p.m. tonight on Fox 5) captures the largest audience, from Idol Fan-atics to those who haven't followed the season at all! So even if you stopped watching when LaKisha Jones got kicked off... or cried with Simon last week when Melinda Doolittle's shine came to an end... if you hate Paula Abdul for trying to bring sexy back 89 years later, and feel that her tripping over her chihuahua and breaking her nose is nothing more than a desperate plea for attention doesn't really matter. Tonight is your last opportunity to make your voice heard! So go ahead and vote, vote, and vote again!

So who's getting your vote tonight?

...Will it be the gorgeous and oh so talented JORDIN SPARKS? (my personal favorite!)

...or the short and sexy b-igetty, b-igetty, b-igetty, b-igetty BLAKE LEWIS? (gotta love him!)


FERGIE @ Bryant Park this Friday, May 25

The 2007 Good Morning America FREE Concert series will also begin bright and early @ 7 a.m. Of course that means that if you want even a slight view, you need to be there @ 6!!

So all you early birds and crazy fans get ready, cause you know

FERGIE FERG makes you love her long time!!

Don't forget to stay tuned for updates on both the Today Show and Good Morning America FREE summer concerts, and other Hot Spots to hit up in and around the city!

...and ladies, you know the deal!

do it with Style, and seal it with a Kiss!

Seriously? Seriously!!

OK... so we all know the hottest trend in Hollywood is far from fashion! It's little black babies! ...but not the most obvious, easily accessible African-American babies... they're straight from Africa!

...So who's next on the roster? Gayle King!

Hey, whatever floats your boat, right? They're definitely in need as well. I just think that we need to start here, at home, so that the impact of our help across the globe will be so much more powerful! Don't you?

by the way... in this pic, if you can't see it clearly, Paris has a "baby Louis Vuitton under her arm"! Talk about setting a trend! Damn... did Kanye start this ish?

Booty Call!!

Ever looked at a denim Ad and thought to yourself, "I would look so much better in those jeans!"...? Well here's your opportunity, but act fast!! HOTSEXTFIT Brazilian Jeans Co. is looking for female models NOW!! ...and you don't have to be a size 2!! In fact only size 5, 7, 13 and 15 need apply... it's a PAID gig!

You'll do promotions for the store and web-site, photo shoots, fashion shows and more... and it's right here in NY... 35 W. 125th Street.

Email your full body shot (wearing a pair of jeans of course!)with your measurements and contact info to:

Family Fun!

Guess who's coming to BROADWAY?!! Shrek, Little Shop of Horrors (wow, knowing about this movie is really showing my age, huh?? ...but we all know Semour!!), and of course Grease! WHOO-HOO!!!!!

I'm so excited, and can't wait for these shows to begin. So in the meantime, I'm making my way over to Ticketmaster and the box office to check out Elle Woods in Legally Blonde (one of my favorite movies... I'll let you know if the Great White Way does it any justice!) ... and Shrek the Third, which by the way broke the record for best opening for an animated film!!

See you there... it with Style, and seal it with a Kiss!

You're Fired!!

Sorry Trump! It seems as though you just got the boot! We all know that your ego will not allow NBC or anyone (especially the media... especially after all the Rosie drama) to get the best of you! So if it makes you feel better to tell the world that this was all your decision... Go For It!!

Seriously, his success is so far beyond measure... does it really make a difference?

Don't Be Afraid to Touche..

Roses are red, and your cheeks should be too! Especially in the summer!

My new favorite beauty toy is YSL's Touche Blush... available in five different shades. Find a color that's right for you, and add a hint o' hue that will make you want to smile all day!

It's fun built in sponge brush makes this powder blush quick, easy and mess free! What more can you ask for?!

....Keep your eyes open, and focused on this book!
So do men really have that many secrets that they can't express verbally? Do they really think that they can teach us a thing or two about themselves... something that we don't already know? Give me a break! We know it all, right?! Well.... not according to David Zinczenko and Ted Spiker! Authors of Oprah's Book Club, Men, Love & Sex: The Complete User's Guide for Women.

From The Publisher:
To prove his claim that what women don't know about men could fill a book, Men's Health editor in chief David Zinczenko wrote this book. His Men, Love & Sex uses recent studies to reveal the hidden springs of male behavior. It explores such arcane matters as the ultimate motivation for cheating; the five truths about his sexuality that a man will never tell you; and secrets to initiating honest dialogue about your relationship. Rock-solid advice grounded in research.

Well, I haven't read this book yet, but I'll definitely pick up a copy... I think they're just ego-trippin'!!!

Her Crown and Glory!!

This summer, head to the salon with your Fekkai Protein Treatment Mask in hand, and get a new 'Do! Whether you decide to go 'au natural', add a few curls, cut a few layers, straighten, or lengthen... make sure you are completely satisfied with your new look! We all know, a woman's beauty is in her confidence... and her confidence is in her hair! So if you're trying something new, or going with the tried and true... close your eyes, inhale, smile... and make it you!

(Check out some cute styles that work for celebrities... don't forget to bring pictures if you're going for something new!) it with Style and seal it with a Kiss!

Live Your Life Like it's Golden!!

OK, ladies.... Don't forget to snatch up your yellow dress for the summer! A perfect and essential addition to the wardrobe for that "Bright Sunshiny Day!" ...and yes, there will be plenty of those ...starting right ...NOW!!! This fun color ( my favorite color) is flawless and stunning on all, and complements virtually any complexion! So put away that little black dress this season... and let the true color shine through! Besides, who wants to wear black in the sweltering heat! Go Get 'Em Girl!!

...and as always, do it with Style and seal it with a Kiss! ...Smooches!

Summer Love

You gotta love NY in the summer time! So much to see, so many things to do... It's truly the time for you to romance your city! Be a tourist in your own backyard! ... and the best part is, you dont have to worry about the holiday bum rush! OK fine, the streets are still going to be crowded, and there will be children everywhere... you'll see I "heart" NY t-shirts, American Girl twins and green foam Statue of Liberty crowns, but really that's what you're here for! To be a New Yorker is to "be a part of it"!!!

So now is the time, enjoy what this summer has in store for you! Take advantage of the season's hottest trends and fashions, outdoor restaurants, free film festivals, free concerts and family fun days. Head to the museum or the botanical garden, stroll the park and the zoo. Don't forget to hit up Summer Stage at Central Park, or Mid-Summer Night's Swing at Lincoln Center. Love Broadway!! Hop on the Staten Island Ferry just for the heck of it, and take the Hampton Jitney to Coney Island (that's right) if you don't want to go all the way out to the Hamptons. Ride the double decker tour bus, or just enjoy a street fair. Shop along Fifth Ave, hit up the farmer's market, and add a caricature of you and your boo to the art collection. Brunch with the girls, and BBQ with the fam! Take a romantic walk along the river, or make love on the beach ...(oops! I don't think that's allowed, but it sure sounds wonderful doesn't it!)!

Whatever your Summer Love is, whoever your Summer Love is... Do it with style and seal it with a kiss! Enjoy it, Enjoy them, Enjoy you, Enjoy New York!
