RHONY Recap: Regency Reunion

Tinsley is waiting for Carole at a little restaurant-Carole is really liking Tinsley so far. Tinsley reports that her mom and friend are coming to help her apartment hunt. Carole and Tinsley both attended the Winter Wonderland Ball at the NY Botanical Gardens (Carole slayed) a few weeks ago and Carole reads Tinsley a gossip blurb about her, that also mentioned Carole, from the NY Post. Tinsley is overwhelmed being back in NYC because of her past. Carole suggests reinvention, like cutting or coloring her hair but Tinsley gets panic stricken at the mere thought of not being blond, or not having her curls. Girl. Carole does have a point but Tinsley is not having it.

Sonja is having lunch served by Frenchy. He’s moved in and is extra. Frenchy predicts that they’ll be very happy and thinks Sonja should shut the door when she’s pooping. Sonja thinks he shouldn’t even be on the same floor if she’s going and should ask permission before climbing the stairs. She is cray. Sonja doesn’t think Tinsley should be in such a rush to leave. Now Sonja and Frenchy are chatting in bed about those “beechez” and how their relationship is no ones business. He mentions a text he got from a friend about Sonja and Rocco. Sonja lies.

Ramona Facetimes Avery to tell her the kitchen is finished. She wants to have a cocktail party to celebrate the completion of her renovations and is inviting Bethenny. She feels bad, wants to make amends and really has no idea how things got this far. Really?

Tinsley and her mother Dale are meeting with Chris, the friend/realtor to apt hunt. He tells her they’re in the “primest” neighborhood in the West Village. They look at a 4 bedroom ridiculously priced apartment with a tee-tiny master bedroom. It’s pretty, but for almost 9k a month? Tinsley says she can afford it but wants to keep looking.

Carole is having her interior designer over to finally refurbish the couch she inherited from her mother in law. It’s old, classic, has a lot of history but is beat to hell. She’s been collecting fabric swatches and the designer is like whoa. There’s a lot. There’s also a cat hanging from the curtains. Adam shows up bearing flowers and is picking up the last of his things. Carole is relieved for the space and knows their relationship will get much better. She wants his Buddha head though, and is willing to trade him-he wants her lamps. The designer says no way-Carole says they’ll talk later.

Back to the apt hunt with Tinsley and co-they look at another 9k apt but this one is WAY nicer and she’s dumb if she doesn’t take it. Tinsley hems and haws, she’s not sure if she’s “mature” enough for an apt and the responsibilities (wait what?) and starts to go in panic mode about renting. She’s kind of overthinking this and being a baby. Shit happens-she’s 39 or so? I kind of get it but come ON.

Bethenny has Fredrick over to declutter and simplify her apt for sale. He wants the bar out-she doesn’t think it can be moved. She did some furniture moving and Fredrick is happy with everything but the bar. Bethenny makes a call and finds out it’ll probably break if they try and move it, which Fredrick is fine with. Bethenny is not. She spent 40k in it (for WHAT?) and doesn’t want to break it.

Carole is packing for the D.C. women’s march. She and Dorinda are going together.

Sonja is in Hoboken NJ to meet Rocco for dinner-sort of out of the way, no? They’re so happy to see each other. Does he own this place? The restaurant is shut down just for them. She’s got to tell Rocco about Frenchy. She starts off telling him the Tom saga, and Rocco says some guys think the way Tom behaved is normal. Sonja says she doesn’t like it, she wants “normalty”. Now she’s got to explain Frenchy and is stumbling over her words, doing it very poorly. Said he’s a complete stranger she slept with and now he’s moved in and she doesn’t know how it happened (basically, that’s what I got anyway). What a liarface. She tells Rocco that there’s no other guy like him though. Lies. Rocco wants to know the status of their relationship.

In DC, Carole, Dorinda and Hannah are marching. Some of the chants are funny. There are so many people, they have an amazing day.

Ramona is prepping for her cocktail party to show off her apartment. Her hair looks awful and weird, in a tight high ponytail but it’s too severe and her ponytail hair is fried. Carole is the first to arrive and noticed Ramona’s weird hair. Tinsley and her mom arrive, she introduces Ramona to her mom-you can definitely see the 2 eyeing and sizing up each other. Dale comments in Ramona’s pony. Ramona thinks her pony is edgy. It’s not.

Tinsley is rehashing her apartment hunting drama to Carole and complaining about how overwhelming it is. Waaah. Dorinda walks in-I think she should trash a room. She’s too classy for that. I’m not. Oh look-Harry Dubin. I feel like when he’s on the show he tries extra hard to be schmexy and he just comes off as smarmy and gross. He says hello to Tinsley, she introduces him to her mom. Harry is openly staring at Tinsley’s chest, compliments her cross necklace then comments on her chest. Tinsley is grossed out. She drags her mom away, calling Harry an asshole, but he follows them because he’s gross and persistent.

Sonja’s here! Ramona calls her Sony. Sonja turns the corner and hears “hello, Sonja” in a Hannibal Lector-y voice but it’s Harry. Of course. She’s like really? Harry?

Harry like Sonja’s red lipstick. She tells him she’s turned over a new leaf, and he wants to see it. Ugh. Tom and Luann stroll in. Luann actually tears herself away from Tom’s side long enough to sit with Dorinda and Carole. She asks if Bethenny is coming-no way. She was invited but declined. Ramona and Bethenny still are not speaking.

Now Ramona has joined them and Dorinda asks what they have to do to get Bethenny and Ramona back together-Carole recommends a text and meeting in private. Ramona gets defensive and says that it wasn’t all her, why is she getting all the blame? Carole explains that Ramona went to unnecessary lengths to insult Bethenny, but Ramona says “hey, I was attacked!”. That didn’t happen but ok. Ramona says she doesn’t even remember what she said and blames the fact she was drinking on Bethenny-Ramona was “nervous”. Ramona says she really loves Bethenny and wants to reach out and make amends.

More Harry, yuck. A woman named Missy walks in, she used to date Tom. Harry orders her to “come here!”, she scoots away. Missy gets introduced to Luann, Tom is a bit red in the face-and he reminds the ladies they met once before at the Regency.

Tom and Missy awkwardly conversate-like, they’re talking without trying to look like they’re talking-she comments on his wedding ring and Tom compares it to being a dog with a collar. Excellent. Great pick, Luann. Lu whispers to Tom asking if that’s the woman from the Regency, she’s got that fake nervous smile plastered on her face-he says “it’s Missy”. Lu prods a bit more and he admits they dated. She’s still wearing the fake, forced, nervous smile and is totally crowding him. I’m waiting for her to lift her leg and mark her territory. I don’t buy for one SECOND that she’s secure in all this.

Harry is now honing in on Missy. He’s trying to get the details of the Regency hookup with Tim in the bathroom (that place needs a serious bleaching) but she’s not going there. Lu and her freaky forced smile scare her, and she doesn’t need that mess coming for her. Harry tells her that she’s the full package, and she says “you snooze, you lose”. I think Lu did her a favor. If I owned or managed the Regency I’d be pissed-the image Tom gives it isn’t a good one-a sleazy, skeezy pick up/cheating bar where middle aged bald men bang chicks in the bathroom. Not a good look. For either. It’s Toms personal bachelor pad. He’s gross too. Anyway-

Dorinda is doing the robot dance in the corner. Sonja thinks that Ramona invited Missy on purpose, starting drama.

Next week: Bethenny plans a Vermont trip. Tinsley can’t sleep. Sonja offends Luann. Tinsley melts down.

A Patient Hubs, And Some Numbers

This is husbandly dedication. I bought a charcoal/volcanic ash facial peel mask thing and I wanted to try it out on hubs.

img_3091

Best. Sport. Ever. Not only did he let me put it on him, he let me take a pic. He was grossed out by it going on, amused by peeling it off but overall could not care less. 😉

On a different note-we are at 1.4 million views. MILLION. Damn y’all, thats only in 6 mos!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love you all, and am so grateful.

Also, I tried out one of the Biobelle masks from Boxycharm-first I used the Dr Brandt microdermabrasion, then the “I Woke Up Like This” mask-it’s really really nice. Not sticky, smells awesome. It’s a go, not a no.

That’s all I got for now-working on the next Prison Diaries chapter-it’s coming SOON.

June Boxycharm

My June Boxycharm FINALLY landed in my mailbox today-it shipped on like, June 7. I feel like it stopped every 100 feet! Anyway, it was worth the wait.

img_3099
This month’s theme is “Downtown Charm”. Cute, right?

First-the Real Her Palette.

img_3098
In the box

img_3096

I received the nude collection. It swatches nicely, seems pretty pigmented. The lighter colors actually show up way better in person:

img_3095
I think I’ll like playing with this palette and I wanted the nude one. So, that’s a win. This retails for 28$.
****
Next, the Luxie Rose Gold Pro Precision Tapered Face Brush

img_3104
As usual, I love this brush. It’s great for highlighter or brushing away extra setting powder, and Luxie brushes are bomb. Retails for 24$.
****
Diamond Glow Powder by Artist Couture

img_3103

img_3102

This powder is SO PRETTY. It’s intense, so if you use it as highlight be aware if you tend to be heavy handed. You can brush this loose powder on your collarbone, shoulders, wherever you want a little shimmer. It’s beautiful-a gold tone, but not glitter.

img_3101
This retails for 26.99$
****
Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Lipstick

img_3094
I received the shade Santa Ana, which is the one I wanted, yay. It’s a berry-wine color, gorgeous.

img_3093
This is probably one of the best liquid lip formulas out there. It’s not drying, it’s not thick, nor is it runny. It smells AWESOME, like a light vanilla scent. Not overpowering either. I absolutely love this formula. Retails for 19.90$.
***
Last, but not least! 3 Biobelle Cosmetics sheet masks.

img_3100
There are 3 different types: one called “I Woke Up Like This” which has wild rose and vitamin C, and enhances skin’s natural glow. The next Mask has pomegranate and hyaluronic acid and is called “#1 Beauty Secret”. This one moisturizers and helps skin appear smooth and firm. The last one has tea tree oil, rosehip extract and vitamin C and is a primer for before you apply your makeup. Sounds neat-I’m definitely trying that. These 3 retail for 14.97$ total.

img_3092

And there you have it, June’s Boxycharm! I’m happy with it, the Ofra lip is a great product, the palette and powder are promising. I always love me some Luxie brushes. The value of this box is 114$. That’s on the lower value end of what I’ve received but I’m fine with that-for 21$ a month? Can’t complain.

What’s annoying you?

Let’s use this thread to post about what’s really pissing you off and annoying you.

I’ll start:

  1. This effing heatwave. It’s been 105+ every day since Saturday and tomorrow is supposed to be 110+.
  2. While I think I killed all the mice, last Friday night, I found a dead rat under the dishwasher and totally freaked out. Of course, I was the only one home and had to deal with it.
  3. MY AIR CONDITIONING WENT OUT LAST NIGHT and the home warranty people have no idea when they can send someone out to fix it because all their contractors are booked solid BECAUSE OF THIS DAMN HEATWAVE.

I’m over being responsible. Can I just pack up my family and find a deserted island and live in a hut on the beach?

P.S. We are out of the house until the a/c is fixed. I will try to log into my DVR to watch RHOP and recap, but I can’t make any promises.

XOXO,
B&B

Mont Bleu: Some European Ingenuity

I received these items in a PR package from Mont Bleu, a company out of Prague. I’ll be honest, I was a little doubtful, but figured I’d give them a shot-boy, was I pleasantly surprised. It was great because I am a nail girl, I do my own nails multiple times a week, so I was eager to try this stuff.

img_3079

What are they? Nail files-but not just any bail files. They’re made of glass, and embellished with Swarovski crystals. And holy cow, do they work. I was thinking “glass? How is glass going to file?” But the file end is rough, not as rough and harsh as an emory board but just as efficient.

img_3082

They did a fantastic job shaping and smoothing. Oh-this is the new Ipsy nail polish from my June bag as well.

They come on black velvety pouches, and I was dubious at first but pleasantly surprised.

They also sent me cuticle scissors-

img_3080

These are AWESOME. Sharp AF, and the perfect curve. Also great for eyebrow shaping/trimming, the curve is perfect the way it lays against your brow for precise trimming.

Last, but never least-a glass foot scraper and callous remover. OMG. My feet need help y’all, and this is just the thing. Not only does it scrape the dead skin but it leaves your heels/feet so soft-again, pleasantly surprised.

img_3081

It’s neat looking too. I’m really really pleased with these products. Mont Bleu was kind enough to give me a discount code to offer y’all as well-if anyone wants to try these out, us code BLOG at checkout for 20% off.

Oh-shipping only took about 7 days from Prague which is impressive.

Here’s the company info:

Check them out! Despite this being a PR package if anything sucked, I’d tell you honestly, y’all know that about me.

Sunday Funny

Ok-so I was watching a show in ID, I don’t remember what it was, but they were interviewing a cop about a case. This image was in the background-I did a double take, rewound, and paused so I could take a picture because….well, see for yourselves.

Does anyone else see what I see?

What can I say? I’m glad some of y’all said a joint because I couldn’t figure out what it was SUPPOSED to be!

💔

In case some of you aren’t subscribed to Mouse’s blog, she’s got some sad news. Her Mum passed away peacefully last night-and I know I’m not alone in sending her so much love and light from across the pond.

We are all so terribly sorry to hear, Mousie, and sad for you. 💜
