Looks of Summer

Summer is hot but you don't have to be. No one loves dressing in layers more than I do but the sweltering southern heat will have you melting faster than MacArthur's Park. Keep it cool this summer. Like this...

Summer Sandals 2014

Guys don't overlook the power of sandals this summer! There are so many styles waiting for you out there, from casual to dressy! Wearing sandals will update your look, keep you on trend without "trying" to hard and may keep you feeling cool! Show them off with shorts and throw on a fitted blazer to dress up your look. Or wear them with a pair of jeans or chinos but don't forget to roll the pants up! And please make sure to get a pedicure! Yes, real men [also] get mani-pedis. [Featured sandals (l-r) Salvatore Ferragamo, Trussardi, and my faves, Corneliani.]

Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman

Meet Xena. Warrior Princess.

Oops. I meant Wonder Woman. You can see the confusion, right?

Warner Bros. revealed the "new" Wonder Woman costume at Comic-Con on Saturday.

I try my best to always embrace change, but coming from the generation who grew up with Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman, I'm having a problem with this. It's mainly the color I take issue with, or lack there of. Where's the red, blue and gold?? This brown / rust color is shit. C'mon guys. Superman's costume had it's upgrades but the color was left in tact. 

I'll get over it when the movie comes out. Maybe the costume will fix itself by then. 

Gal Gadot is playing Wonder Woman in "Batman V Superman" with Ben Affleck (as Batman) and Henry Cavill (as Superman). "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" is out on May 6, 2016.

Lyrics from the TV Series Theme Song:
"Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman.
All the world's waiting for you,
and the power you possess.

In your satin tights,
Fighting for your rights
And the old Red, White and Blue."

The Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer


Season 5 of AMC's The Walking Dead premieres in October 2014, but fans, like myself, are thrilled to have this trailer to hold now. Rick Grimes [Andrew Lincoln] and his crew aren't looking good at all! The trailer leads you to believe that the creepy Terminus folks may cooperate with Rick. I don't trust them and if there's something I know for a fact about The Walking Dead, don't get too comfortable with anyone or anything. If you do, as I have done repeatedly, they'll devastate you. Season 5 trailer made its premiere at Comic-Con.

Mojitos by Havana Club Rum


This is not a DIY post on how to make mojitos... though these mojitos, served at the newly remodeled Hotel Capri in el Vedado Havana, Cuba were fantastic! Absolutely fantastic!! This is however, a post recommending Havana Club rum. This rum is smooth and sophisticated and, in a way, the secret ingredient here. Havana Club is made in Santa Cruz del Norte, Cuba, so you can't get it in the states. You can find it in the Bahamas and I've heard rumors that Bacardi may be carrying it soon, if not already. Mojitos are better when made with Havana Club. Something worth looking into. Havana Club is made with fresh sugarcane and aged in oak casks, 1 -7 years. It's also good as a shot or for sipping, which is how I prefer it. Keeps the flavor pure.

Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Trailer


Steamy! As it should be... yep, this is one steamy trailer. You'll just have to watch it... Fifty Shades of Grey is slated for release on Valentine's Day 2015 ... that's sexy. Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson sizzle in the trailer so I can only imagine what the chemistry is like in the film. Also, pay close attention to the music in the background. It's a remix of Beyonce's "Crazy In Love."

Ok... stop reading and watch the trailer!! You might need a cigarette after...
