Baby Elephant Fabulousness

The only thing better than the ocean is a baby elephant. A baby elephant playing in the ocean is happiness pure and simple. Caught this on Perez Hilton's Teddy Hilton.

"Style Is Everything, George"

"During Diana Vreeland’s fifty year reign as the “Empress of Fashion,” she launched Twiggy, advised Jackie Onassis, and established countless trends that have withstood the test of time. She was the fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar where she worked for twenty-five years before becoming editor-in-chief ofVogue, followed by a remarkable stint at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, where she helped popularize its historical collections. DIANA VREELAND: THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL is an intimate portrait and a vibrant celebration of one of the most influential women of the twentieth century, an enduring icon who has had a strong influence on the course of fashion, beauty, publishing and culture." dianavreeland-film
Diana Vreeland is a great source of inspiration for the fabulous which makes this documentary essential Fabulous Alert viewing. After watching it I found myself using copious amounts of blush.

Beach Essentials

Beach Cream ($45) Aerin 

This new beach cream from Aerin Beauty promises to do everything but kiss you goodnight. I just read the second rave review about it. 
"This conditioning, subtly shimmering formula is perfect to use when skin and hair are dry from the sun, wind and surf. Skin looks radiantly healthy while the sun's warming rays activate a deep conditioning treatment for hair. Plus, AERIN's floral infusion promotes relaxation." Aerin

Love For The Loved One

If you like dark comedy, The Loved One is the mother lode. Tune into tonight at 10:15 on TCM. You'll never look at Rod Steiger the same again.  
"The funeral business gets a giant raspberry in this wickedly wacky, resplendently ridiculous farce based on Evelyn Waugh's macabre comic masterpiece and directed with inspired verve by Tony Richardson (Tom Jones). But the American way of death isn't the film's only target: sex, greed, religion and mother love are also in the crosshairs of its satirical shots. Robert Morse plays a bemused would-be poet who gets entangled with an unctuous cemetery entrepreneur (Jonathan Winters), a mom-obsessed mortician (Rod Steiger) and other bizarre characters played by such adept farceurs as John Gielgud, Robert Morley, Tab Hunter, Milton Berle, James Coburn and Liberace. If The Loved One doesn't make you laugh, call the undertaker!"- Amazon

Tunic Or Not Tunic

Printed Tunic ($26.94) Old Navy 
This Old Navy tunic is SO much cuter in person and I can easily hide my bone stimulator which I wear twenty-three hours a day. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do to fuse her bones.
