We had a photo shoot today because we are rolling out some of the new fall convertibles early as they sold out “booko” (circa 1992) fast for the summer season. 

Just wanted to share with you guys some of my inspirations for Fall/Holiday 2009.  You’ll be seeing the new pics soon!

Saw this ad featuring Beyonce I got ding-ding-ding inspired!

Check out some of my fall inspirations, much more to come!

This Barney’s Ad is out there, but in a good way

Last Thursday I was invited by Royal Caribbean to come tour the Explorer of the Seas which is the boat we will be on for our 5-day Curvy Girls At Sea August 29 – September 3, 2009.  I got a tour of the boat where I saw everything from the rooms to the clubs to the spa (will definitely be getting a massage).  Then I was treated to a yummy lunch (mushroom pasta, salad, cherry chocolate cake and lots of wine), and had the opportunity to meet with the sales director for our cruise.  Mina from Largay Travel also came with, and it was great to see the boat and all the trouble activities we will be getting into. 

Here are some pics from the boat!  Can’t wait to see you all on the 29th on our way to sunny Bermuda!


Our boat!

I like this hospitality, cocktails as soon as we get on

Midnight Pool party will be in this area, I’ll be posted up in this jacuzzi

I can’t wait to do the rock climbing!

Miniature Golf!

The inside of this boat looks like a mall, it’s amazing, you forget you are on a boat


See you on the 29th!
