On Vacation!!

Dear Good People, 

I 'm taking a few weeks off  from The Black Socialite Blog 
to make a major life transition that is super exciting!

I will resume blogging around the first week of August. 

I'll have LOTS of good stuff to share with you!

In the meanwhile, continue to be fabulous!

 Thank you for your kindness and support!

Friday's Fabulous Flick

This week’s flick features fabulous designer Monique Péan  at  fellow designer’s Prabal Gurung Resort collection party recently at Indochine in New York City. Péan is also one of the designers with items for sale online in the “Runway To Win” store – a fundraiser for President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign.

Happy Fourth of July!!

Here's to having a wonderful July 4th (although it's weirdly placed in the middle of the week this year...)

Enjoy good time with family and friends 'round the barbeque grill, pool, patio, or wherever your leisure activities take you.

Fab Fiance and I will be home enjoying an indoor barbeque (I like hot weather but this East Coast heat is about to do me in for real!) and getting ourselves organized for our July 20th nuptials! 

You'll have to help me re-name Fab Fiance in the next few weeks so put your thinking caps on.

Take care and of course we'll talk soon!

My "Great" July 4th Holiday Idea

I always come up with the best ideas…at the very last minute.

Just a few hours ago, I decided to have an “indoor barbeque” on my George Foreman Grill for me and Fab Fiancé (a la Acme Markets & Whole Foods Market) to celebrate the 4th of July holiday. 

Fab Fiancé has to work on July 4th and since it’s supposed to be a million degrees outside, 
I think it’s best to stay indoors and enjoy the air conditioning. 

Now, I have to figure out what to buy and cook. 

I’m not really into the traditional July 4th holiday fare – but I will let you know that here’s what I plan to get (if it’s still in the supermarket):

-Lamb or veal burgers (I might stuff them with feta or blue cheese)
-Veggie baked beans
-Lemonade (I like Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade)
-Chicken thighs (they are wonderful grilled)
- A vegetable (maybe asparagus??)
-Potato salad (I may make this myself with Miracle Whip Light & white onions)

Acme Markets sells the most amazing (and calorie rich) microwaveable upside down mini pineapple cakes.   
Fab Fiancé and I will split one with a tiny scoop of ice cream. 

What are you planning for the holiday? Feel free to share it with me on Facebook!
