Admiring Dita

I have to sit back and admire Dita for a while. She always looks so put together, glamorous and amazing! It got me wondering how long it takes her to get ready every day. So I googled it and found an interview in which she answers the question and even has a good tip for us gals!:

*Do you mind if I ask how long it takes you to get ready in the morning?

"Well it depends on where I’m going, I have varying degrees of how far I go. I can get ready in 20 minutes to look decent, but I would like 40 minutes if I’m putting on my full face of make-up. I’m actually writing a beauty book right now and we timed how long it took me to do my make-up and hair. Setting my hair in hot rollers took exactly 13 minutes, doing my make-up took exactly 22 minutes and that was for a full red carpet look, and brushing my hair out took exactly 7 minutes, so the whole thing took 42 minutes to get completely ready. I can do it really quickly because I’ve been doing it the same way for so many years, almost 20 years in fact."

*I’ve never seen a photograph of you when you don’t look stunning and so well groomed! Do you ever have an off day?

"I have a secret and that is to have a great coat, some great sunglasses and red lipstick. With that, you can fool anyone, they just think you’re completely dressed to the nines. You see those pictures of me out and about and I might be naked underneath or have my work-out clothes on and you’d never know."

Great tip! I do the red lipstick already. Now all I need is a great coat and some great sunglasses. Although I could never do the naked underneath the coat thing....


Remembering Lena Horne: 1917 - 2010

Born on June 30, 1917, Lena Horne was considered one of the most beautiful women in the world. She came to the attention of Hollywood in 1942 and was the first black woman to sign a meaningful long-term contract with a major studio, a contract that said she would never have to play a maid.

Horne died at the age of 92 on May 9 at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City.

My little man

This is my little man and I on Mother's Day. He's 5 years old and he can be a pain in the butt sometimes, but I love him to death and can't imagine my life without him.
I love you baby!

For all you dolls out there that are moms, I hope you get treated like the Queen that you are! So get all dolled up and enjoy your day, cuz I'll be doing the same ;-)
