After watching all the glamour and glitz at The Golden Globe awards last night, my manager Kevin AKA Steven Spielberg (and congrats to the real one for winning last eve!) thought I should have my own behind the scenes ‘red carpet’ moment. Actually, he had this planned since last week when we were at the Today Show spreading some glove with Kathie Lee and Hoda and shot some video of little ole accidental housewife me . Not quite Red Carpet glamour and glitz more like stairs and glares as I walked from the Green Room to Hair ‘n Makeup n then into the Sudio. But I did get to rub my fave gloves and elbows with Seth Rogen, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer (and forgive me but if she’s a ‘real housewife” then I’m Angelina Jolie–hmmm then again my name is Julie maybe she is real LOL :), my old bud and her publicist Howard Bragman and Henry! Hope u enjoy…And, please stay posted, my “Steven’s” got a follow-up video coming to a blog near you later! Spread the glove!
Happy Wednesday fellow housewives! Home working following yesterday’s paw-fectly fun Today Show segment with Kathie Lee ‘n Hoda and caught up with the my Rhode Island bud, fashion guru and ABC Nightline featured Mom-trepreneur Audrey McClelland of the oh so fab website/blog etc momgenerations.com which she, her sister and mom host. We were talking about a bunch of stuff going on in our lives and when we got off I decided with Spring around the corner (one can only hope!) I’d check out what fashion trends are happening since i of course forgot to ask her as I chatted in my oh so sexy sweats and clogs! Well, low ‘n behold . . . who’d have thunk! I’m ahead of the curf…sorta …or at least my signature pink with black ‘n white polka dot cuffed rubber gloves are. That’s correct…according to Audrey polka dots are ‘back baby’. I’m thrilled though my gloves alone will not a fashion statement make so I best start saving some moula to complete the look! That said, I did want to share a look ‘n link to Audrey’s uber informative “Mom Fashion Report /365 Days of Fashion Advice for Moms!” which will give you the 411 on Spring 2012. http://momgenerations.com/mom-fashion/ I’m looking forward to the fashionista trends she’ll share from Fashion Week in Feb!
Oh, and lest I not forget, I wanted to pay homage to the First Woman or Mouse 🙂 of ‘dot couture’: the sheek ‘n stylish Minnie Mouse!
Spread the glove!
Every time I do a segment on the Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda it’s a hoot…and today’s about PET PEEVES was no different. We laugh, they make fun of me (particularly Kathie Lee) and we almost always find a reason to end with a libation unless of course we’re talking about kid-related stuff…Then it’s simply understood that you might like or need to have a glass of vino at day’s end to help us through our hectic mommy schedules!
Today, I shared how the oohs, aahs and cuteness of that new puppy or kitty you lost your mind over and brought home over the holidays has now evolved into a blend of not so cute poop, pee, hair and odors…oh my! And, I shared some of my simple money saving tips to clean and deodorize using everyday household items like white vinegar, baking soda, toothpaste (non-gel), Hydrogen peroxide, and Listerine; Bounce fabric dryer sheets and cat litter to absorb smells (and btw cat litter is a terrif moisture absorber beyond the litter box since it can suck up to 15x it’s weight-sorry it doesn’t work on our bodies J); how to get rid of fur on furniture and floors using mani-friendly rubber gloves (dampened) or double-stick tape on a paint roller; and ended by sharing a great way to save our sanity post clean-up while also helping pets in need: drinking Les Compagnons wines which give a percentage back to four pet charities… Fun, informative stuff which you can enjoy in its entirety should you wish (glass of vino optional!) by clicking here:
I also thought you might be interested to see some of this accidental housewife’s behind the scenes, shot courtesy of my very own Speilberg and manager Kevin. BTW, have some video too but still figuring out how to get it to play so that’ll be for another day!
And BIG, BIG woofs go out to HENRY, our lovable pooch n the real star of the segment and Susan, my amazing producer and Henry’s mom xo
As always if you have any pet peeves you wanna ask about, share a tip, trick or tale about please do so here on my blog, facebook or tweet moi! Spread the glove!
WOW! Can u believe the holidays are over? I can’t say that they came and went and I wasn’t in the moment. Nope for the first time in eons I actually can look back and not quote John Lennon about ‘life’s what’s happening when you’re busy making plans”. . . I made plans and I was living them! That’s not to say I didn’t work a bit, stress a bit and not take as much time as Sir D might have preferred though he tempted and spoiled me in far too many ways for which I am mucho grateful…but overall I chilled and cheered (perhaps a tad too much) my way through the holidays!
And, it all started with my Mary Tyler Moore tour of NYC (DEC. 5) following the gig with Kathie Lee ‘n Hoda on the Today Show—And BTW, yours truly is back with my fave gals next Tuesday, January 10th to share tips n’ tricks for those of us who got suckered into getting our kiddies a new pet and now are paying our doo…n cleaning it too!
But that’s another day’s blog to share…For a few more brief moments before my dinner needs to be on the table, another load of laundry done and my head hits the pillow so I can be up with the roosters to insure my son is not late for school, I am still in holiday happy mode. And, I wanted to share a few pix with all of ye from Crossing the Delaware via Ferry in Biz Mode to tourin’ n tastin’ D Beer at Dogfish Head Brewery to D hospitality n oh so charmin’ Inn at Cove Bay in Lewes, DE to the incredible ‘n yummy Holiday eve courtesy of chef extraordinaire Peter Kelly at X2o n his incredibly talented bro Ned Kelly…And, last but far from least –to D’man SSD Tank ye mucho xoxo!
Please, please NOTE! I’d love to see your pix too so please share here at LiveFromHysteriaLane, tweet or FB me! Happy New Year all! Spread the glove 🙂
