YAASS, It’s about to be on….I made it to New Orleans and I’m about to be LIT! Isn’t that how the kids say it. Beautiful weather, great food, the best champagne…EVER. So, I’m in New Orleans because two of my clients from New Orleans are getting married on the same day so they flew me out to do makeup on their special day.
My flight was very early, 5:30am but it’s ok because Nancy booked me First Class on United Airlines so I was able to enjoy great seating and unlimited mimosas. My Girl Pal, Jamielyn picked me up from the airport and we had reservation at one of the best NOLA restaurants, Brennan’s. Guess what, it’s also International Champagne Day so you know it’s going to be a fancy day.
Ended my fabulous day by witnessing a second line…only in New Orleans.

Everyone always ask what are some of the recipes we use when we film our Makeup And Martinis NYC videos. So, this year we decided to share them with you with the first being a drink call Cosmopolitan Twist and it’s DE-LUSH-OUS!
As many of you know I’m a devoted Champagne and Prosecco drinker. My two favorite brands are Maison Veuve Clicquot and Mionetto Prosecco. I don’t need a special event or occasion to pop open a bottle of one of those fancy bubbles. Today during lunch I realized that a restaurant bartender didn’t know the difference between the two. Well, to keep the story short we noticed at lunch the bartender kept pouring us Prosecco but charged us for champagne. Everything was taking care of by the manager who was so embarrassed because the poor girl said she’s been doing this for some time because she didn’t know the difference.
If you didn’t feel like doing all that reading basically champagne have persistent bubbles, its stronger with a drier taste and prosecco has a lighter, spritzy bubbles and the taste is more fruity and sweet, at least to me. So, now I’m wondering how often does this happen. Have anyone else ever caught your bartender pouring you the wrong wine but charged you for a higher end wine?
Both Johnny and myself have really busy Saturday’s so we always luv to catch up to chat makeup, hair, & fashion. We are both slated at two luxurious upscale salons in Greenwich, CT so after work we met up at our favorite place, Terra Danbury inside Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury. The weather was perfect for spending time out on the patio enjoy their patio cocktails. A perfect hangout for adults who just want to enjoy a late afternoon out. We enjoy coming here because the staff always give such great service and their drinks and food is always delectable. You know I’m very selective about where I spend my personal time. They have been able to capture that posh aura that I get when I’m in the city.
I order the FOREST FLOOR and Johnny order the DANBURY SOCIAL. Both drinks were very mouthwatering that we ordered a few on that evening.
