Meet Lindy & Grundy, the FAB butcher shop in the LA area!  I don’t eat meat all the time but sometimes I just need a steak or a lamb chop. And then of course there’s the concept of responsible agriculture which I learned more about when my brother, Ross, introduced me to Joel Salatin’s book. You want to know where your meat comes from if you can. Well, at Lindy & Grundy the meats are all locally raised by organic conscious farms and they’re the only whole animal butcher shop in the state! Not to mention, the two ladies who own it are awesome, informed and stylish.  Do you have a favorite old-school butcher shop in your neighborhood?

Tracee Lipstick Story Cover

Like clothes, the right lipsticks can inspire a mood. Thank goodness for lipstick because there have been many a days where painting my lips is the exact thing that turns my frown upside down.  So I thought it’d be fun to choose some of my favorite BOLD lipsticks, then rifle through my closet and see what was born. It was a blast! I just love how each lipstick creates such a distinctive…attitude! In this video we have:

Tracee Ellis Ross - One Flight Up

This is a fun read and a page-turner for sure. It is about 4 women in the upper crust of NY being fabulous in their Jimmy Choos. I won’t give more away than that. Just read it. It has the right amount of sex, titillation and cheating to match up with a healthy dose of romance, love and fantasy. These 4 women are smart, flawed and sexy and the writing keeps your brain awake and wanting more. This is not heavy literature, but it is a damn fun read. I read the first book in the Shades of Grey series but I found myself flipping forward in the hopes of something that might really turn me on (yeah I said it). What was that writing? I couldn’t read beyond book one of Fifty Shades of Grey but One Flight Up held me. Plus, the added bonus here, that’s never mentioned (not even on the back cover): all four ladies are women of color. What a treat! How great to see this side of us. Go Susan Fales-Hill!!! Thank goodness you are writing. Now let’s turn this into a movie could we please!?!
