LAST MOVIE I WATCHED

I watched The Descendants. I liked how deglamorized George Clooney was. I'm used to seeing him in a tuxedo on the red carpet. It was nice to see him in a faded Hawaiian shirt.

LAST BIG SPLURGE

I bought a knit dress with gold threads from Chloe. It's very Stevie Nicks. It was one of those "aha" moments. The lights dimmed, a spotlight shined on it, and there were angels singing. I made them take it off the mannequin.

LAST VACATION I TOOK

I went to Mexico to get away for a few days and I found this boutique hotel that specializes in organic food. I wish I had read more, but I spent it on the beach building sand temples.

LAST INJURY I HAD

I bruised my rotator cuff while boxing. It was so painful that I got up and I couldn't put my shirt on.

LAST HANGOVER

The day after I was on Andy Cohen's show. It has been over three years since I had hard alcohol. I had a wicked hangover from Maker's Mark. The next day, I had lots of vitamin C, ibuprofen and fried eggs.
