The Dirty Martini ~ Week In Review

Celeb 411
Doesn't she look fab?
We love us some NeNe Leakes, yes we do and it looks like the rest of the world loves her just as much as we do because this women has been all over the airwaves lately.  Not only is she on the Bravo hit reality show Real Housewives of Atlanta, she also plays the fiery Rocky Rhoades in the NBC comedy series The New Normal  and has a recurring role as Coach Roz on Glee.  Now we can add to that TV talk show host.  Okay before you get all happy, she's not about to have her own talk show (although we think that would be great), she has actually been guest hosting with the ladies on The View.  Talk about great TV!  As if that wasn't enough, Ms. Leakes has also been making her way in the social scene with a recent sighting at famed event planner and designer extraordinaire Preston Bailey's wedding to his long time fiancé, Grammy nominated singer Theo Bleckmann.  Work it Ms. NeNe!

Hummm I wonder if she’ll hire Preston Bailey to design her upcoming wedding to her ex-husband/fiancé Gregg???  I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.


StyleDIVA Adventures
One of our goals for 2013 was to step out of our comfort zone and do/try things that we've always wanted to do but just never got around to doing them for whatever reason.  Well this weekend the StyleDIVA did just that by participating in her very first 5k.  Yes, our very own Robin {AKA StyleDIVA} laced up her running shoes, put her hair in a fabulous pony and joined hundreds of other participants in the Color Me Rad 5k in Bakersfield, CA.  

Here are a few pics from the race.  Way to go Robin!!!!

For more information on the run, visit the Color Me Rad website.

Cocktail Erika’s Cocktail of the Week

This week I have been craving something sweet.  So when I came across this yummy cocktail I knew it was what I needed to help me satisfy this massive sweet tooth.  This is the perfect cocktail to serve at your next birthday bash or at your next girl’s night in.  To take this yummy cocktail to the next level, rim your martini glass with your favorite sugary sprinkles and Voilà!

2 oz.  Smirnoff® Iced Cake Flavored Vodka
1 oz. orange juice
1 oz. pineapple juice
Club soda
Your favorite colored sprinkles

Rim your favorite glass (we love a pretty martini glass) with an orange slice and then dip it in the colored sprinkles.  Next fill your shaker with ice and add the vodka, orange juice and pineapple juice.  Shake well and strain into glass.  Top off with club soda.


Did You Catch Our Show???? 

Today we had an opportunity to chat with the visionary behind the popular TV show Every Way Woman, Yolando Mitchell Brown.  She talked about how she came up with the concept of the show (which we think is amazing), how she went about casting for the perfect hosts and she also shared with us some BIG NEWS about the future of the show.  {Hello World!}  This woman is focused, motivated and inspiring and we know after you listen you are going to LOVE her just as much as we do.  This is good programming yall!   If you didn't get a chance to listen to the LIVE broadcast don't worry, you know we've got you covered.  Just click on the play button below and enjoy!
