Janet Sartin

Funny thing... I was just telling to you guys the other day that I needed to order my Janet Sartin White Astringent and guess what??  I check my voicemail at work and they called me from NYC.  The sales lady said "Hello XXXXX,  we have not heard from you in awhile so I just want to offer you a promotion.  $50.00 off a purchase of $70.00 or more..   Please call us back for details!"

 I will call tomorrow and get the details and ask for any promo codes (if any)  I can post for my friends here on this blog.  Will update tomorrow evening on this.   :)  If any of you have not tried it, I highly recommend it!  Carolyn used it and her face looked like marble.  Just flawless and I really see a difference when I'm using it.  Check out the reviews.

ps.. I'm in no way getting a deal for posting this or getting any free items.  It's just my honest review.

Fall + Brown corduroys + Birkin bag = bliss!!

I KNOW we've all seen these wonderful pictures a million times but I can't help myself.  It's fall and time to get back to our classic fashion Carolyn look.  Carolyn first sported the Birkin bag before Victoria Beckham became famous.  Here are the lovely pictures of her in true form.

Real Housewives of New York: New Housewife… Carol Radziwill???

I think all Carolyn Fans have read Carol Radziwill's book "What Remains."  In the book she seemed so shy and very private like Carolyn.  I was surprised to find out she may be on the show Real Housewives of New York TV show. If this turns out to be true, I would watch the show to get know her better because she was a loyal and very close friend of Carolyn and John. 

If she decides to do the show, I say go for it!  She deserves to do whatever makes her happy.  Plus, we might get to hear her talk about her past.  Good for her and I hope she is enjoying life to the fullest!

I have posted a couple of pictures of the Radziwill's, Carolyn, and below that the article with the link  to the source.  Enjoy!

A Jackie O Relative Joins The Cast Of ‘Real Housewives Of New York’ Along With 2 Other New Faces!
Real Housewives of New York Cast

Meet the three new women of ‘RHONY’: author Carole Radziwill, fashion designer Heather Thomson and Wall Street wife Aviva Drescher! Ramona Singer tells exclusively that they begin filming on Oct. 3!

It’s hard to believe that we won’t be seeing Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Cindy Barshop or Kelly Bensimon returning to The Real Housewives of New York City for season five, but Bravo made the decision to let them go. And it seems that Bravo’s already hired their replacements! Bravo has brought aboard three new women — Carole Radziwill, a distant relative of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, fashion designer Heather Thomson and Wall Street wife Aviva Drescher — sources tell the NY Daily News! Can these women fill the shoes of the stars that were let go?
Carole is related to Jackie O through her late husband Anthony Radziwill. Anthony’s mother Lee Radziwill is Jackie’s little sister. Anthony sadly passed away from cancer in 1999. Carole is a former ABC producer and now a bestselling author, but has no children. According to the sources, Carole will add to the drama of the housewives as the single gal in the group. Sounds like Sonja Morgan has a new partying buddy!
Heather is married and has two children. She’s fashion designer of Yummie Tummie shapewear line.
Aviva’s married to well-off Reid Drescher, founder of Spencer Clarke Securities & Investment Banking. The couple have three children. Producers were looking to find a woman who would represent the finance and Wall Street crowds, says a source. Aviva seems perfect for the role!
Aviva and Heather have both socialized with RHONY cast members in the past – but poor Carole has “never met any of the women,” reveals an insider.
It will be very interesting to see what roles these women take on in season five. Will Sonja buddy up with Carole and Aviva because they’re blonde? Will Ramona Singer start quarrels with Heather over business ideas? And who will be Countess LuAnn de Lesseps best friend now that Jill and Kelly are gone? Only time will tell.
Ramona told exclusively that filming is set to begin on Oct. 3. Hopefully Bravo’s recasting will do the show justice!

John at the beach shirtless! Happy Thursday

Thursdays are my "Fridays," so there is nothing like starting my day before the weekend looking at John shirtless and at the beach. *drool*  Yummy.  Of course I have to put a cute picture of Carolyn enjoying a day at the beach as well because after all, this blog is for her.  Enjoy and hope everyone has a great weekend.

The famous fight

Someone posted the entire fight of John and Carolyn on YouTube.  Some say it was staged to throw off the press on their up and coming wedding, and some of course think it was real.  Either way, you can see that these two people are just like everyone else caught in a very embarrassing situation.  There is more information on the fight in this blog posted, including articles and published in books by people close to them.  I won't re post everything again, so just search for post on side bar.

Christina Hagg's book Come To the Edge: A Memoir

I just want to remind everyone, Christina's book has been out and  has received really great reviews.  Very affordable on

Red Prada Coat 1997

My favorite coat of all time..  Would love to get my hands on an original.  These pics look like they could have been taken yesterday.  The collage was from Ultimate Carolyn which sadly is no longer up.  Hope you like the post.

Update: I couldn't remember exactly when these were taken.  Was reminded by a CBK fan that these were taken only a few months after they were married.  They were in "Vanity Fair several years ago, and the caption said January 1997.  To be specific, I believe these photos were taken late January 1997 (maybe the 28th)".

So thanks for the info CBK fan! :)
