This has been the longest Fourth Of July ever. It started on Friday and is still going on with no end in sight but I have just the antidote. Directed by Stephen Frears, A Very English Scandal has everything I'm looking for in a BBC production: great writing, great acting, atmosphere, a cheeky soundtrack, and a few cute animals (Mrs. Tish is the Shirley Temple of Jack Russell Terriers). This crazy story is true. Stream it now on Amazon and get ready to be entertained.
My love for Ben Wishaw and that amazing hair of his knows no bounds and Hugh Grant is back honey. Not just kind of sort of back, but back back. Both actors deserve awards for this.
And for a little lagniappe check out Prick Up Your Ears, the true story of playwright Joe Orton (also directed by Stephen Frears).

Tried not to burn through season two of Queer Eye but I couldn't help but devour it. The levity was much needed. Here is a bonus episode of Queer Eye. A little lagniappe pour vous. Your welcs.

|Sephora Sun Safety Kit $36 ($161 value)|
Take it from a skin cancer survivor, do not F with the sun. She is not here for that. Sephora does this Sun Safety Kit every year and it really is a good deal. You can try a bunch of different products and Sephora donates $25 to cancer charities with each purchase, and you get to live to see another day.

Loving this new Jessie Ware video that I caught wind of on Perez Hilton. J'adore the hair, clothes and Slim Aarons-esque backdrop. Where’s my Bain de Soleil?

I’ve said it before, but The Crown makes Downton Abbey look like Downton Shabby. The preview of season two of The Crown has officially brought me back to life. It isn’t happening until December 8th on Netflix, but maybe if I take a really long nap (one of my nicknames is Hibernatia)...
I spy exotic locales, a sassy Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret, a dreamy Mathew Goode, Dexter (what’s he doing there), a hirsute Prince Phillip, and a jealous Queen who is fed up. “If only.” Indeed.

Lately, I’ve been wondering what’s missing in my life, and I concluded that I have a Corky St. Clair-sized hole in my heart that can now be filled because Christopher Guest is reprising his Waiting For Guffman role as the fabulous CSC. The new mockumentary Mascots has all the usual suspects: Parker Posey, Fred Willard Jane Lynch, Ed Begley Jr., Jennifer Coolidge, Michael Hitchcock, and Bob Balaban. Check out the fun trailer. Mascots is coming To Netflix October 13th.-CABOO

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

The Night Manager airs tonight at 10 on AMC. Be there and behold the beautiful blue eyes of Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, and Elizabeth Debicki. As a spy story aficionado, this six episode John le Carre adaptation looks promising, and more importantly Elizabeth's hair and wardrobe are super chic.

|MAC's New Heirloom Mix Collection.|
It's that special time of year when MAC unveils their holiday collection. You never know what you're going to get. Will it be futuristic (remember the Space Odyssey-esque collection), traditional (the tartan collection) or upscale French prostitute circa 1950. This year's collection is called Heirloom Mix. With lots of sparkling cameos, it's very ghost glamour or Miss Havisham after things went south. November 6th is when the lip gloss, nail polish, and pigment sets become available which is when I strike.

The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, the new Ken Burns project, is coming to PBS Sunday night at 8. I'm so there.
"THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY chronicles the lives of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of the most prominent and influential family in American politics. It is the first time in a major documentary television series that their individual stories have been interwoven into a single narrative. This seven-part, fourteen hour film follows the Roosevelts for more than a century, from Theodore’s birth in 1858 to Eleanor’s death in 1962. Over the course of those years, Theodore would become the 26th President of the United States and his beloved niece, Eleanor, would marry his fifth cousin, Franklin, who became the 32nd President of the United States. Together, these three individuals not only redefined the relationship Americans had with their government and with each other, but also redefined the role of the United States within the wider world. The series encompasses the history the Roosevelts helped to shape: the creation of National Parks, the digging of the Panama Canal, the passage of innovative New Deal programs, the defeat of Hitler, and the postwar struggles for civil rights at home and human rights abroad. It is also an intimate human story about love, betrayal, family loyalty, personal courage and the conquest of fear."- PBS-CABOO

I love it when bags give back. They have a tendency to be so selfish, so it's nice when they're not all take, take, take. This one from Madewell teaches children about gardening and nutrition. 30% of the proceeds benefit Edible Schoolyard.

I blogged about this back in 2011 but what with the World Cup and all…here she is.
I'm crazy about Caipirinhas, Brazil's national cocktail. Muddling limes to make a Caipirinha is as much cooking as I do, but it's so worth it. Click here for the recipe. My friends got me this bottle of Cachaca (a liquor made from distilled sugarcane) to make the delicious drink. I love the bottle so much I don't want to drink it, but I also love Caipirinhas. What to do?
Post Snark: Let the drinker beware. Caipirinhas are pretty strong and it's so easy to drink them and drink them and drink them. If I was a gnat, I would dive into a pitcher of Caips and drink my way to the bottom. What a way to go.
