Mad for Jumpsuits!

After FLOTUS  sashayed on to "The Tonight Show " in a St. John  jumpsuit I have been mad to own them. Honestly I haven't worn a jumpsuit since Donna Summer sang "Bad Girls". My bad! I always kept one on hand. So off I went to H&M were I found a cute sheer number on sale. Then on to Lord and Taylor where a fab Catherine Maladrino  was scooped up. Can anyone  tell me where I can find this sweet Diane Von Furstenberg worn in MORE magazine by Angie Harmon? Hit me up!

b michael @ New York Fashion Week Fall/ Winter 2014

Late in the game I decided I wanted to go to  Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week at Lincoln Center. My friend actress and singer Jean Michelle Grier was thrown a birthday party at b michael's salon several years ago, so I sent him an e-mail and his team e-mailed me back  a standing room invite. I was so happy. Since I didn't have a seat I stuck my iPhone in one pocket and my Nikon Cool Pix in the other. The show was in the Pavillon with seating in the round, one of the PR team members found me a front row seat. Lucky me. I researched his career and wrote a post for The Huffington Post, Glam Master b michael".  The show was breathtaking and I saw Cicely Tyson, Tamara Tunie, Terry Lundgren CEO  of Macy's (b michael America Red collection is sold exclusively there), Harriet Cole and model/actress Alva Chinn. I got so many good shots I decided to share them here.

Twenty five years ago my Mom bought me a set of Le Creuset when I moved to my first apartment that I still cook on and they look good as new.I love to devour food memoirs and cookbooks.When I could be biking, yoga or playing tennis I am in wrapped attention watching "The Mind Of a Chef". These are my fav cookbooks that I go back to over and over again..
I love certain recipes like Union Square's Marinated Fillet of Tuna, FLOTUS book recipe for linguine with mushroom bacon sauce and The Barefoot Contessa's croissant bread pudding and  Nigella's lemon chicken. Julia Child's Way to Cook" is just my cooking bible. I don't know what cook book it comes from but I love Tyler Florence's Smoked Ham with Bourbon, Brown Sugar and Cola.
Ingredients 1 (7-8 lb.) smoked ham, full…
