More Ms Blunt

And the love affair continues with this amazing image...

Le Kiss for Ms Lefevre

Rachelle Lefevre is a talented actress who has been recently dumped (don't like the word "dumped") by film company Summit for apparently not disclosing her 10 day work schedule to them earlier this year. The film is called Eclipse, a screen adaptation of the massively popular novels by author Stephenie Meyer and the third in the Twilight saga, which is comprised of 4 films. Press statements by both managements are flying around and I am sure Rachelle is feeling worse for wear.
Apparently, her contract does state that she's allowed to work on smaller projects so I'm not sure of the real story behind the press releases. They did site Rachelle having "lack of cooperative spirit". I thought Rachelle showed up to every press junket and interview and seemed quite charming. I feel bad for Rachelle and do not envy the hurt she's bound to be suffering. I hope she keeps her spirits high and in time, feels like a stronger woman.

Silent Kitty

Two days ago, I spent 4 hours with my hairdresser. I had my hair bleached, washed, bleached again, washed, toned, washed, coloured, treated, washed, cut, dried, cut again and straightened.
All that work and now I can't show it off because I'm sitting here in my boudoir, with no voice. I was sent home from work today as I am currently barely more than a mute.
Not long ago I thought I was being blessed with a new "sound". Yesterday, I was calling the casting agent with excuses, just so he could hear my sexy, husky new voice. Today - it's gone. At a push, I sound like a young boy during early puberty. No, I'm just not talking.

I love Lauren Bacall's voice. So throaty. Beautiful. Then there's Kathleen Turner, Bette Davis, June Allyson, Demi Moore and Scarlett Johansson.
I wonder why husky voices sound wiser. I wonder where my husky voice went... I want it back!

Ms Blunt

Emily Olivia Leah Blunt. She's a fantastic and versatile actress. She's from England and she's currently filming a movie with Matt Damon (if I had a brother, I imagine him like Matt). She started in the theatre (like me, except I'm still there) but her breakout role was in the film My Summer Or Love, though most people remember her for her role of the bitchy Emily in The Devil Wears Prada with Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway (does Anne know she shares the same name as Shakespeares' wife?).

She met her ex-boyfriened, crooner Michael Buble whilst in Melbourne and they bought a property together. Unfortunately, they are no longer an item.

I just adore her lately. And this image is superb.

I'm on facebook too! Look for me under kitty xx


Jennifer Meyer's daddy is Ron Meyer, the President and CEO of Universal Studios and her step-daddy is a rabbi. Her husband is an actor - Tobey Maguire (one of Leonardo DiCaprio's best friends).
When Jennifer was only 6, her grandmother Edith Meyer taught her the fundamentals of enamel jewelry making. Jennifer has studied psychology and Syracuse University and has worked in PR at Giorgio Armani and Ralph Lauren. I'd love to have a look though her lovely closet! Oh, she was also an editor at Glamour magazine.

Her ruby collection is in honor of her daughter Ruby Sweetheart Maguire, who was born 10 November 2006. Jennifer wears a ruby every day to selebrate her daughter's life.
You can find her collections at Barneys New York, Roseark in LA and Maxfield in Beverly Hills.

Jazz Baby

So maybe you've decided that you are, in fact a bombshell. Maybe you're just interested in the Bombshell style.

You may have no idea what kind of music should accompany a Bombshell. What music fits her lifestyle? What does a Bombshell listen to when she's in the mood to dance? What music does she play to enhance her "mean reds" or "blues" whilst crying? What music would she play when she's in love?

Our moods and circumstances do play a huge part in the places we frequent, the clothes we wear and the music and musicians we care to listen to.

I can't speak for absolutely ALL bombshells of the world, but I'll endeavor to find some music that I'd be likely to listen to...

Bombshell in Love:
Mozart, Elvis Costello (I love his version of "she"), Nat King Cole, Michael Buble, Barry White...

Bombshell in misery:
Cry Me A River - Diana Krall's version, Julie London's and Justin Timberlakes! Marilyn Monroe, Ella Fitzgerald and Sachmo...

Bombshell in the morning:
(Usually quite inspiring and up-beat to get her started for the day)
Tchaikovsky, Bobby Darin, Dionne Warwick, Louie Prima. . .

Bombshell after work:
(Turning the lights down and unwinding in a bubble bath or just relaxing with a glass of wine)
Debussy, Tony Bennett, lounge music, Ertha Kitt, Black Coffee (love Julie London's version), Ella Fitzgerald.

Bombshell in the kitchen (with someone who'll cook for her):
Dean Martin, Doris Day, Petula Clarke, Bing Crosby, The Village People...

Bombshell on vacation:
Elvis Presley (Hawaii), Wayne Newton (Las Vegas), Beethoven (anywhere), Dolly Parton (country), Edith Piaf (France), anything french...

Shopping Bombshell:
Henry Mancini, Shirley Bassey, Frank Sinatra...

Dancing ("shimmying") Bombshell:
Miles Davis, Elvis Presley, Carol King, 1950's New York jazz, Arty Shaw, Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Buble...

Oh I could go on and on... But I won't.

Destination Vacation #3 - LONDON

Pussy cat, pussy cat where have you been? Have you been to London to visit the Queen??

Ah London... This is a city very familiar to me. If you are to visit, you really should think of staying at the Dorchester Hotel situated in Park Lane, London W1K 1QA.

It's situated in Mayfair which is good when it comes to this magnificent city! I've certainly had a fabulous time at this particular hotel.

Lord Halifax and Fuff Cooper stayed at the Dorchester during World War II. During this time The Dorchester was regarded as the safest hotel in London. There is an Eisenhower Suite on the first floor named after General Dwight D Eisenhower who stayed there in 2 rooms 1942. Winston Churchill had a wall erected on his balcony for privacy and it is still on the balcony!

Harold Nicholson, T.S. Eliot and Edith Sitwell dined there (so did I). Vivienne Leigh, Lawrence Olivier, Brigitte Bardot, Danny Kaye, Alfred Hitchcock, Duke Ellington, Noel Coward and Marlene Dietrich (loved the Oliver Messel Suite), Judy Garland made this hotel her base, the Beatles, Charlton Heston (a fan of the Italian marble baths), Julie Andrews and many more celebrities enjoy the elegance and comfort of this hotel.

Economising Kitty

An economic crisis can not and will not bring a good Kitty down. Think of all those hot kittens during last centurys' Great Depression.

In order to survive a depression, recession or gobal financial crisis (they really all feel the same to me), I've selected a few daily items to help you live through these financially traumatic times in peak bombshell performance.

Accessories - keep your handbags in dustbags and treat your leather well. Leathergoods (gloves, bags and shoes) should ALWAYS be of best quality. Shoes should be stored in shoe boxes and re-soled when new as to prolong their durabitily. Gloves must be kept grease-free, therefore aviod touch them as little as possible. These items will help get you through the tough times in great style.

Skincare - Always use the best skincare you can afford. If you are really suffering with money just go for products like Nivea. Remember you can waste a LOT of money experimenting with new products so this is NOT a good time to try too many new things. It you must skrimp, let the cleanser be of lesser value. Cetaphil lotion is a good cleanser or just go for a cold cream. Don't pay for facials now, just do them yourself at home.

Makeup - foundation should be of good quality and so should your concealer. Remember the saying "Your face is your fortune". Often when it comes to colours (blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner) the cheaper option is more effective. Lipstick makes you feel better so ALWAYS wear it, my dear! Make sure your lips aren't dry and don't forget to exfoliate.

Delapidatory - wax or shave your own legs and bits. Save money where you can by doing this yourself instead of going to your beautician. Don't forget to moisturise the areas afterwards though. To me, sorbolene cream smells like hospitals so I don't use it. Palmers is also cheap and it doesn't smell clinical.

Food - Continue to dine at the best restaurants and cafes as usual, just order the less expensive meals. Order the soup or the cob salad instead of the highly prices dishes. Drink water instead of soft drinks. It's a fantastic time to diet! My grandfather used to say no matter how bad things get, never sacrifice the quality of your food. Overtipping isn't the right thing to do at these times either. You are your own charity at the moment.

Drink - Feminists look away now! Make sure you get men to buy you all the drinks. You shouldn't ever NEED to buy your own drinks - this is a birthrite!! Gentlemen should be honoured to buy your drinks in exchange for your alluring and charming company. Do not feel pressured to return him anything more than that. He's so lucky to be talking with you that it's his duty to keep you in comfort. If not, move on...

Well I've just had a languid bubble bath and am smelling and feeling oh so wonderful. I feel like a better actress now I've almost memorised all of my lines. Such a good girl... I think I'll indulge in some art... Toodaloo!
