Book Club Monday

I have been having some problems with blogger over the weekend so I apologize for all the emails some with past posts, some with future posts.  YIKES!!!  I am working this out..onto Book Club Monday (in case you have not already seen it!!!!!!!!)

The Assouline company promises to provide the "most sophisticated books in the world".  And, with their "In The Spirit Of" books, they surely do.  Each book has stunning photos, history, fashion, glamour and local folklore of the most exotic places.  Its hard to decide which one to read first.

Saturday Real Estate Stalking

Have you ever dreamed about owning your own Island?  Well have I found the perfect spot for you!  Tavern Island is located in Rowayton Ct.  I really have never seen anything like this before.  The Island contains a 6,000 square foot main house dating back from 1900, that has been completely renovated.  There is a caretakers house, a boat house and a tea house on the property too!!!  On a clear night you can see all the way to Manhattan from the properties' 360 degree view.  This house has a colorful history as well, one of the owners was Billy Rose, an showman impresario.  He would regularly entertain such legends as Marlyn Monroe and Barbara Streisand at his legendary parties.  Amazing!!!  If you would like more information please contact rick@higginsgroup.com

Fashionable Friend Friday

This week's Fashionable Friend Friday, is a Stylist and a Director of Business Development at W by Worth.  She has a keen fashion sense and always puts together the perfect outfit.  So much so, that I have actually seen women buy the exact outfit that she is wearing at a particular event.  You don't get more fashionable than that!!  Recently she asked me to help her find the perfect striped shirt.  The striped shirt has been a wardrobe icon for years.  It has been favored in some of the most famous wardrobes from Coco Chanel to Audrey Hepburn.  Here are some examples I have found for you!  I personally love the wide stripe or boat neck styles! Bon Weekend!

Self Tanner Thursday

I am always on the eternal search for the best self tanner.  This topic always comes up with my readers as vacation time and summer time approaches.  I recently tested the Arbonne Liquid Sunshine Tinted Self Tanner.  It is wonderful.  The smell is great.  It is tinted, so its foolproof.  You know exactly where you are applying it  and it gives you a natural glow, not orange at all.  You can purchase this self tanner by clicking the Arbonne ad above or by contacting Jill Kay at JillKay@myarbonne.com.

In case you had any questions on the best way to apply a self tanner, here are some tips according to the American Academy of Dermatology:

Exfoliate. Use a washcloth to exfoliate the skin prior to applying a self-tanner. 
Dry your skin. 
Apply in sections. 
Wash your hands after each section. 
Blend at your wrists and ankles.
Dilute over your joints. 
Give your skin time to dry. 
Apply sunscreen every day.

Wednesday Wish List

I love anything with embellishments.  Clothes, bags, shoes.  Unfortunately most of these items are quite costly because they are labor intensive.  One of the easier fixes for shoe embellishment crushes is to add a shoe clip to an other wise plain pair of flats or pumps.  The result is jaw dropping.  Every time I wear a shoe with a decorative clip I get so many compliments.  People cannot believe that they are two separate pieces.  I have given you some examples below.  You can easily find affordable, yet runway ready shoe clips for sale all over the internet.  Have fun and got forth and embellish!!!!  In the meanwhile, one lucky reader will receive a pair of shoe clips just by commenting below how you would wear your decorative clip?  I cannot wait to hear from you!!!

Everything Is Rosey

Last week I was lucky enough to visit one of my Sponsor's shops, Everything Is Rosey. It was love at first site!  The little store on the Post Rd in Darien, Ct will stop you in your tracks.  The selection of merchandise is amazing, so colorful and very hard to decide which print to choose because they are all fab!!  The shop's owner Rosey Costello has an eye for preppy style and a huge following.  She really knows what a girl wants!!!!  From the short time I was there, there was a constant stream of shoppers looking for summer dresses, beach bags, and gifts of all sorts, from birthday to graduation.  They came to the right place, Rosey has it all.  I had my eye on so many things, it was hard to choose.  
Visit Everything Is Rosey to see for yourself at 1072 Post Rd, Darien Ct 06820.
