It feels like just yesterday we were shitting the bed in Cartagena, but the ladies of Real Housewives of New York City are back!
In this post I’ll be introducing you to the new housewife, saying bye bye to Carole Radziwill, giving AGELESS by Ramona updates, talking about Tinsley Mortimer dancing in a strip club in WEST Palm Beach, discussing the nuances of Palm Beach vs. West Palm Beach, and rounding up all of the Real Housewives of New York City Beauty Secrets Blog Posts!
From the previews it looks like RHONY season 11 will be the usual drinking, flirting with young men, screaming at each other on girls trips, rehashing old problems, fighting at restaurants, JOVANI, and traveling to South Florida. All the things we love!
When Does Real Housewives of New York City Season 11 Start?
I’ve been doing my Lisa Vanderpump research and have come to the conclusion that she LOVES a Gucci belt. She wears the pearl and crystal Gucci belts often and they look great! I was watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 9 Episode 2 Eat Your Heart Out and really liked her pink ruffle top with the Gucci belt and pink lip gloss. I did a little browsing and found a few similar tops.
When I first heard about the concept of Grouper I was intrigued, but instantly was turned off by it. Grouper is a social club that sets up drinks between 2 groups of friends: 3 guys and 3 girls. I immediately thought, but what if the guy I like likes one of my friends? That always sucks when that happens! You also get no choice as to who you are set up with so it’s a totally blind group date (except you know what your 2 friends look like because you invite them). You also have to pay for Grouper and I have never used a dating site I had to pay for. Grouper costs $20 per person plus a 10% tip for your server which covers their introduction and concierge service and a free first round of drinks at the bar they select for you (the concierge part).
Grouper is actually not claiming to be setting you up on a date and people who sign up don’t have to be single (but God would I be annoyed to go out with a group of guys who were all in relationships wtf). They are planning a night for you with the perfect girl to guy ratio and giving you ideas on how to make it fun. These ideas include preparing “two truths and a lie” before the date for a fun discussion or playing the iPhone game “Phrase Party”. I will say that going on a Grouper definitely takes a lot of the pressure off of the conversations you’re having and you feel less like you’re on a job interview and more like you’re hanging out with friends which is nice. Going out with friends also forces you to be a more authentic version of yourself because your friends might call your ass out or tell the embarrassing stories you might have tried to avoid which does help you get to know each other much faster. It also forces you to actually make a plan instead of getting stuck in chatting or messaging back and forth purgatory.
If you know me, then you know that I am head over heels in love with my queen Bey, Mrs. Beyonce Knowles-Carter. Last weekend I had the absolute privilege of seeing her live in concert and it was everything I dreamed it was going to be and so much more. Although there are only a few dates left, I thought I’d post about what I wore and my tips since they can be generalized to other tours such as the beautiful Rihanna who is coming to LA this weekend. I also want to post this because let’s get real, I googled this very question before the concert.
The pressure I felt to look amazing and up to Beyonce standards for the concert can only be compared to disarming a bomb with a gun pointed to my head. This is why I procrastinated until the last minute. Like every event in my life, I spent 2+ hours on my makeup, and 20 minutes each on my hair and outfit.
