  1. Mrs. Kravitz goes to the Hamptons

    August 18, 2013 by admin

    We had some young friend’s visiting recently and we took them to our favorite local French restaurant , Pierre’s. As I’m taking my first sips of my martini made with non-russian vodka, I notice a man and a child come in and this man looks so familiar. I even turn to Ken to ask him if he recognizes him, thinking he may be someone we know from business. Then the young girl turns around and I see it’s Mary Kate Olsen and this man is her boyfriend Olivier, brother of the former President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy. I’ve tried to picture Carla Bruni and Mary Kate at family dinners together and I just can’t.

    Anyway, it was an interesting sighting. I love fashion and have paid attention to Mary Kate and Ashley’s clothing line, The Row, for some time. While I do like some of the pieces, I have this weird thought that if the last lion on earth roamed into their backyard they would immediately kill it and skin it into the newest travel bag with matching cosmetic case.

    On a more lovely note, we are experiencing some beautiful days at the beach.



  2. Sister Visit

    August 13, 2013 by admin

    I’ve had two sister visits this summer and I’m feeling like the luckiest girl on earth. Cynthia and Barry came, totally beautiful and fun normal visit. Then Jenny came.
    First off, she told me this story about the “Nude lady at Macy’s”. How she asked the sales gal for “the nudest lipstick” and “the nudest cream concealer you have” and if that wasn’t enough, “nude eyeshadow”. Jenny said she didn’t even notice the woman, well how could she, she’s “nuded” herself out of the picture. I can’t seem to get this woman out of my head.

    We had a great visit though. I could have done without the hike in 95 degree humid weather through the tick and bug infested forest but other than that, it was the best. And she makes a mean Manhattan this one.





  3. A Midsummer’s night review

    August 13, 2013 by admin

    The house in the Hammmmptons is now mostly furnished and lounge ready. We’ve enjoyed many guests and had to refill the BBQ’s gas tank. I’ve spent hours in the pool, at the beach, body surfed until I can’t feel my toes and the sun spots on my face that I thought were gone are now a nice golden brown. It’s been an amazing summer so far. However….
    I would just like to add that there have been some rough patches.
    1. I’ve seen every single past, present and possible future “Housewives of New York” (and one !NJ Housewife but who’s counting).
    2. I will puke if I see one more Bentley, Maserati, Porsche, minivan or party planning truck speeding down our lovely little country road where I walk the dogs, deer pass frequently and children play.
    3. Long Neck’s (Hamptons version of the Red Neck, I made that up and want credit for it).
    4. Manhattan mothers “driving” Range Rovers who can’t park.

    Anyway, after August they all go away and don’t come back until next summer, phew!
