My favorite new things for spring!

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

Often times when I am reading a magazine and I read the editors top picks for whatever season, I look at the article and think I might as well be reading an alien from Mars’s favourite picks. I guess I am getting old. It’s just I would never buy a $2000 pair of sunglasses that I would leave in a restaurant. Many things that are fresh from the runway – just make me think of the emperors new clothes. What normal person wears see through clothes – just because Katy Perry and Sarah Jessica Parker are letting the whole world see their knickers and bra for free – doesn’t mean I will. Let them pay the $20 entry to my burlesque show – then they can see me in my undies – in a dark club – but not when I am walking down Broadway in the plain light of day…. I guess I am just jealous that no one asks me what my favorite fabulous suggestions would be. So – without being asked – I am going to tell you what I think is hot and happening with me right now.

In the workout category I am totally obsessed with Barry’s Bootcamp right now. This workout has been in LA for about 14 years and opened in Chelsea on West 20th Street last summer. It is the hardest workout I have done and you see results really quickly. Classes are scheduled pretty much every hour of the day from early morning to late at night. You go back and forth between rows of treadmills to weight stations – doing either 4 or 6 really intense intervals. The trainers, men and women are all totally hot and sexy and over the top inspiring. Prepare to be pushed to your limit. Each class is $32 – and so worth it. This place is throbbing with energy.

Everyone in Brazil Bronze is obsessed with the healthy juices and cleanses from Organic Avenue. There are locations all over the city. We have all been doing these juice cleanses that make you feel so vibrant and alive. I totally love the all green juice and the one made from cashew nuts. Sometimes when I have just been eating dreadful I go in there and get a chlorophyl shot  – I am telling you it just gives you a blast of energy. (be careful not to get it on your teeth though – or you will be smiling with green teeth – the stuff is like green ink – not so sexy.) We also love it that Blue Print juices are being sold at Dean and DeLucca and Whole Foods – so it is easy to grab something healthy when you are on the go and stay on track.

Another thing I can’t live without is our Express Tan. You are supposed to leave this tan on for 2 hours and then shower. When I am feeling like embracing my inner Snookie – when I just want to look really dark (I didn’t say orange – I said dark) then I leave the express on overnight. I am super pale and it is hard for me to get good color – this stuff really does the trick. All our staff love this product – also it fades out really nice. then every day I spritz on our new spf – very gentle on your skin and your spray tan.

OMG – I nearly forgot my last and most favorite obsession – the books they are calling “mommy porn” “Fifty Shades of Grey”. I am on the last book of the trilogy and think they are great. Some of my literary snob friends are dissing the books – but I think they are great. Very sexy and at the heart of it – it is a really sweet love story. Who doesn’t like a good love story. I promise you – if you get these books they will put a smile on your face.

Who needs $2000 sunglasses and see through clothes đŸ˜‰

The world’s first sunscreen that doesn’t F***-up your fake tan

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

If you are not someone who regularly uses self tanner – you won’t get this. But I am over the moon excited, happy and pleased with myself. Our new “Spray-Tan Safe Sunscreen” is here. Whoop-de-doo….

Spray Tan Safe Sunscreen made by Brazil Bronze Glow Bar

Spray Tan Safe Sunscreen made by Brazil Bronze Glow Bar

Only someone really white and pasty like myself can really get this. It takes so much planning, say if you want to go on vacation or away for the weekend. When to get your spray tan (or worry about when and how to apply it properly at home). Then you spend all this time worrying if your spray tan will last long enough – and if it doesn’t – what you should bring with you to make sure that you stay looking golden for the duration of your trip. Who wants to wear a bikini looking less tan than when you arrived at your destination. Very few people really want to wear that damned bikini anyway – if you are going to wear it you want to be as tan as possible and to have probably had a couple of frozen margaritas to boot. Now – for someone like me – I can normally make my spray tan last for five to seven days at home. But, when I go away it could be a whole other story. I am so fair skinned that I have to wear buckets of sunscreen. Since I was a little kid I have been blighted by really bad sun allergies. I have to be super vigilant or I get killer sun poisoning that has to be treated by steroids and puts an end to vacation fun. When I use regular sunscreens – lotions or spray – they just act as an exfoliant, gradually wearing away at my fake tan. So disheartening. So sad. So I have to travel around like the frickin Martha Stewart of self tanning, with a whole arts and crafts kit of self tanning supplies in my suitcase. forget trying to travel with just carry on. I have my TanSXL and my Glow Stretcher….the whole kit and kaboodle.

So – for years I have been on the quest for MY holy  Grail. A sunscreen that would be super safe and protective for my sorry skin – and gentle enough for my sunscreen. Finally it is here. The secret was creating a special spray in a base of aloe, with very small molecules, that could be easily absorbed into the skin. It doesn’t rub off the color (like lotions) it doesn’t strip off the color (like conventional sprays that act like pain stripper.) This product is super gentle, in an aloe base, fortified with anti oxidant vitamins A C and E – so your skin is getting a whole nourishing cocktail of healthy things to keep it young and juicy.

I really think that all my fellow fake tan buddies are going to flip for this. Please try it – it will be for sale @www.brazilbronze.com any day now. Email me @ sally@brazilbronze.com with your feedback.

The Age Issue

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

I am not a big fan when magazines do those editions of what is “appropriate” to wear at each age. Twenty Somethings, feel free to wear neon blue, shimmery eyeshadow, Thirty Somethings, Oh NO….no more shimmer for you, totally inappropriate, Forty Somethings – gotta start to look more classic, drop that hemline, Seventy Somethings here is your tasteful, A-Line Mumu….Someone poke me in the eye with a sharp stick. I can hardly stand it. I feel equal disdain for makeover shows like the American version of “What Not To Wear”. (The British version is redeemed because Trinny and Suzannah are so funny.)  Listen, if someone wants to prance around in gold lame knickers to pick up the school bus, who really cares. Can’t we worry about world peace or finding a cure for cancer. I would be a prime candidate for an intervention, I should be arrested for the outfits I wear to take my kids to the school bus (think a layered look with a pajama base). I couldn’t really care less. Listen, if I have to get to a business meeting, or probably even to a PTA meeting, I will pull myself together enough, but at the bus stop @ 7am, you will have to take me as you find me.

I kind of look at it like this: who knows how long you have on this earth. Seventy years, Fifty Five years, Thirty years. Who knows what is around the corner. While you’re here, enjoy the ride. Wear what you feel like wearing. I don’t like anyone dictating how I should look. It is like someone is saying, with each passing decade you should tone yourself down. What if you don’t feel like toning yourself down? We are all our own creation.

I have always had friends of many ages. It seems to me, that even pretty old people still think about the same things as the young. Most people still crave fun, and passion. Do you know – last week I went with my husband and friends to put on a dance show at a nursing home out on Long Island. These people are old and institutionalized. It could actually make you cry to see their circumstances – and for that reason we like to go and try and make a bit of fun. the show was mostly ballroom dancing, but I decided to throw in two burlesque numbers for the hell of it. Do you know – when the ballroom dancing was going on these poor old coots sat there like vegetables. As soon as we pressed play on the tune “Hey big Spender” it was like someone gave everyone a giant vitamin shot. The sexy moves, the cute costumes – got them all going. Sex is in at every age. Just because you are eighty years old and look old on the outside, you still crave love. Pleasures of the flesh never goes out of style.

In my dance group, The Pink Chardonnays, sometimes I will get a new girl in her early thirties….she will look at herself in a bikini and say – “Oh I’m so fat – I gotta loose weight by next week.” Next week comes around and she dances for the first time in a show, the audience goes crazy, she sees beautiful pictures of herself with her hair and make up all glamorous and pin-up girl – and in an instant, she is able to get it – that a real woman is gorgeous, that she is gorgeous, she is so much more glamorous than she dared to believe possible. But this would never have happened if she hadn’t taken the deeply risky step of prancing around on stage in her smalls.

Arrest these women....they are wearing age inappropriate clothing and prancing aroundAs I write this it is Oscar Sunday. God – I dread to think what mean things Joan Rivers and that Osbourne girl will say about the poor Red Carpet goers on Fashion Police. I am recovering from a crazy week. On Thursday night Burlesque Bikini Bootcamp put on a big show for 350 guests at the Chandelier Room in the W Hotel in Hoboken. I managed to pursuade the male board members to strip down to their skivvies to raise money for a good cause.

The board members of PWP strip to "Sexy and I know it..."They complained a lot in the beginning – but at the end of the day they were the talk of the party. It was a lot of work pulling this show together – but a great deal of fun.

the after partyThen this weekend my friend Edward Simon had a wonderful Ballroom dancing competition at The Roosevelt Hotel. Brazil Bronze has a new product for dancers called “Coco Chacha” for people who want a dark and latin look. Coco Cha Cha sponsored a division at the competition – threw in a little prize money for the competitors. So – this weekend I have been back and forth to the competition – and have really enjoyed watching some of the dancing.

I also went to the amazing Dr Oz’s health and happiness summit at Radio City Music Hall. So many incredible lecturers on the subjects of sleep, nutrition – totally cutting edge information.

So after a flurry of sparkles and rhinestones – feathers and sequins – I am quite worn out. I need an early night…. a cup of tea and a date with the Oscars – in my pajamas, which everyone will see at the bus stop tomorrow morning…
