Love it !

So I've try ed a few hundred places looking for these shoes !! i guess iam just going to have to buy them online no one has them in stores! And now they are only pre- order on Steve madden.com and wont even ship until the end of July ! I have no patience for that !! But i guess i will have too suck it up and wait which iam not good at ! but when i get them i might wear them like this !!!

Bruschetta Salad with Spicy Garlic Mussels

This is a perfect salad for summer ! It's fresh and and light with some bold flavor of Dark Balsamic vinegar! 1 Box of croutons
3 Large tomatoes
1/2 Red Onion slices
6 Garlic cloves minced
a hand full of Basil and salt & pepper to taste toss together ans serve!

I love mussels and so does my family and this were on sale last week when i made this for dinner @ 4.99 per pound i couldn't resist so 3lbs later ! We had some plump garlic spicy mussels and i served them with toasted french bread to soak up the juices !
Make sure when cooking they are clean free of beards and brush the exterior with a scrub brush. and throw away any opened mussels.
Cook all ingredients together in a pan on the grill !
Combine 1 cup of white wine~dry
1 shallot minced
3/4 cup of unsalted butter
1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
1 whole squeezed lemon juice
2 to 3 tbsp of olive oil
and about 12 minced garlic cloves and 2 table spoons of crushed chili peppers cook about 5 to 8 minutes until mussels are open !

I Must have these's Shoes!!!!

The studded sandal trend is hot right now, so i cant wait to try them out! However, with such a trendy style, it is best to go with a cheaper version, like the one featured here, because it could be out of style next year, and you may not have many opportunities to wear it

“The Real” is the Balmain Studded Crystal Sandal and it may be found at LuisAviaroma.com for €1475.00… that’s $2,085 US dollars! “The Steal” would be the Steve madden $129.99 or the Jeffery Campbell Mel's for $164.95 i kinda of like that version better the heel is much wider than the Steve madden one's. So theses are on my wish list for Vegas !!

Obsession : An Erotic tale

Gloria Vanderbilt’s new novel, “Obsession: An Erotic Tale,” which comes out next week, may be the steamiest book ever written by an octogenarian. And it’s one of very few volumes to arrive on the sex-book shelf accompanied by a blurb from Joyce Carol Oates, who calls it, “a remarkable tapestry of human passion — an interior world of highly charged erotic mysteries that teasingly suggest, but ever elude, decoding.”
Gloria Vanderbilt as photographed by Gordon Parks for LIFE magazine July 1954.
Anderson Coopers mom's sexy book comes out next week! is set to be released on June 23rd. Gloria Vanderbilt is 85 and not taking any crap from anybody when it comes to, oh, kinky food sex fantasies. The New York Times is scandalized! Details! Cant wait to add to my collection of table top books it seems like it will be a fascinating read!

Truly Lovely Reads

It would make a great gift for any woman looking to up her style ante. It's easy to read, and easy on the eyes, and is full of juicy fashion learning's.

Got to love Victoria Beckham this book is a riot with her wit and sarcasm i couldn't put it down ! and a quote from her book.
"My own inspirations come from Grace Kelly, Jackie Onassis and Giacometti sculpture, but this book is not my attempt to tell you what or what not to do. It's my last chance to cash in on what remains of my fame before David retires"
This lavish book focuses on Parisian and British couture between 1947 and 1957, a decade that Christian Dior described as fashion's 'golden age'. Dior's 'New Look' collection of 1947 shocked and delighted the fashion world, creating a style that symbolised a new femininity.
Can't wait to get my hands on this i love getting book for my coffee table that i enjoy reading and look through over and over again !
