FFF-Thirsty Thursday 9:6

It’s officially fall, and your man is all pumped up about football season. Meanwhile, you’re all pumped up about…pumps! That’s right, ladies. It’s the best week of the year — Fashion Week!

And while you might not have received your invite to sit in the front row at the Badgley Mischka runway, you can still act like you’re there! Attendees will sip on skinny cocktails created by mixologists from Gerber Group and Disaronno throughout the event. And now you can too!

We got our hands on the recipes for the drinks that all the fashion mavens will be enjoying. So whip up one of these special light drinks, zip up your leather moto jacket, and sip up as you strut your stuff! (Who really needs a catwalk to work it anyway?)

Fresh & Frisky with Frisco

I recently had the pleasure of catching up with an old (but young-looking) friend, Sonia, visiting from NYC.

We went to Sonoma Wine Garden in Santa Monica, and after some full-bodied wine and delish tapas fare, we had to say our goodbyes.

“We must take a pic to immortalize the occasion!” I said, applying BECCA Frisco lip gloss ($23).

Her reply: “I’m gonna need some of that gloss. So pretty!”

So we both applied the strawberry-cake-batter-smelling gloss and smiled for our waiter-turned-photographer.

We loved the result! So much so that, Sonia asked me to text her the name of the gloss.

The next day, I posted the pic on FB and Sonia texted me to say, “I’m buying that gloss TODAY!!”

In the tube, Frisco looks SUPER orange but I swear it’s not.

Just a shiny, sweet-smelling, apricot creamsicle of a gloss, that works for every skin shade, and looks super natural in pics and in person!

Xoxo, BF
