Setting the Mood: For the Fashion Weak

To quote Gary Janetti:

While some rejoice in what is New York Fashion Week, others hide out and wait for the terror to dissipate.  This is the week wherein you will experience the greatest case of FOMO ever. You’re going to get shamed for not having been at the best shows, best parties, and the best after parties, let alone the after after parties.  If you are not a celebrity or a rapper, you are no longer relevant in New York City.  Take a seat, sister.  Long gone are the days when Fashion Week was meant solely for buyers, editors, and actual fashion elite.  Now it’s a peacock showing of who’s who… or not anyone at all.

So, brace yourselves, New Yorkers, we’ve almost made it through.  Cover your eyes and I’ll see you at the next non fashion related event and will most certainly show you some of the moves we learned at our Vixen Workout.



Why Did You Eat That: Cheers to Kirs!

By |January 16th, 2012|Recipes, Why Did You Eat That?|

Now that we are through cheersing all the celebs, it’s time to celebrate someone else.  Someone you might know.  Someone like… ME!  It is officially my “birthday week” and I’m ready to put on my party shoes only to kick them right back off.  Other than a killer outfit and some fun friends to celebrate with, a girl has got to have a signature cocktail.  Luckily for me, I have one made… just for me.

Alright, alright… so maybe this cocktail wasn’t made “especially” for me, but I like to pretend that it was.  This pretty pink drink has several variations- each one delicious, bubbly, and sweet (like me).  Below are the recipes for a classic kir, kir royale, and kir imperial.  Enjoy and celebrate with me!

Cheers (to me).
