Things We're Too Lazy To Blog About Podcast: Getting Down And Dirty About Staying Clean With Amy Dresner

MY FAIR JUNKIE_cover art.jpg

Amy Dresner is our guest this week on the podcast. A brilliant writer, her memoir My Fair Junkie: A Memoir of Getting Dirty and Staying Clean hilariously chronicles what happens when a princess from Beverly Hills gets addicted to drugs, lands in jail and then is forced to do community labor aka picking up garbage on the street (in a uniform—yes, she had gloves). Even if you’ve never overcome addiction, you will relate to her story. Don’t worry—this episode isn’t a downer. Amy is hilarious!

Here are the show notes for the latest episode of Things We're Too Lazy To Blog About with guest Abby Stern. Listen on Listen on iTunesGoogle PlayStitcherAudioBoom, or stream/download.

Strap on your stilettos and grab your rosé because this episode is a party! We were so lucky to have Abby Stern, whose novel According To A Source, is on its way to classic beach read status. Abby reveals all about her book and the writing process. We also talk about Barefoot Blonde Hair (no relation to the cheap wine), Vegas, bad roommates, Temecula, hardware stores, the importance of not taking no for an answer, New Orleans, New York, Kiryas Joel, reverse happy hour, celeb(ish) crushes, Chateau Marmont, Nico Tortorella, meeting your heroes, the nightmare of dating in Los Angeles, proofreading problems, our moms, plural names, Heather Dubrow, Bethenny Frankel and so much more. 

Amanda would not STFU at the beginning of the episode. She feels like a jerk.
If you live in Vegas or Temecula, please don’t hate us. Also, if you are a hair extension person, please reach out. 

As the Countess would say, “Be cool, don't be all, like, uncool.” Buy Abby’s Book on Amazon. And totally judge this book by its beautiful cover.

Dresses To Decor: Ralph Lauren (No Relation) Edition

Welcome to Dresses To Decor, the series where I discuss the decor lines of my favorite clothing designers. Ralph Lauren, who I am not related to (because I know you were wondering), is one of the greatest American designers. Known for his sophisticated cable knits, prints, and the ubiquitous polo pony logo, the brand is synonymous with classic looks that are just as stylish today as they will be in fifty years. The same applies to the label's extensive home line with things to enhance every single room. Here are a few of my favorites and must haves. 

Palmer Bath Sheets

Ralph Lauren Palmer Bath Sheets are my favorite towels of all time. At 35 X 72, they’re big, fluffy and fabulous to wrap yourself up in. These towels are kind of magical and will make you feel like a VIP at a spa every time you get out of the shower. Available in 25 different colors (I can’t even think of 25 colors off the top of my head), they will match everything. If you like your towels extra fancy, have them monogrammed. And you should because if couldn't tell from the site's logo, I so heart monograms.

Whitney Cashmere Throw Blanket

Whitney Cashmere Throw Blanket

My personal rule for life is that friends don’t let friends wear wool blends. This applies to both sweaters and throws. There is nothing quite as lux as a cashmere throw sitting on your couch, especially the Whitney Cashmere Throw with its chic ruffled edges. With six colors available and sized at a generous 60 X 60, it’s a great way to upgrade your Netflix and Chill.

Amalfi Coast Diffuser

Designed in the style of a perfume bottle, the Amalfi Coast home fragrance diffuser is a must. With notes of fig leaf, cassis, blonde woods, and galbanum, who wouldn’t their home to smell like the Amalfi Coast of Italy? It also makes a no-brainer hostess gift.

Audrey Dinnerware Collection

If any dinnerware set deserves a #adulting label, the Audrey Collection is it. Rimmed in 24k gold, the pattern is inspired by a hand-painted silk garment. Made in Portugal of porcelain, (so that's where it actually comes from), don’t forget these delicates dishes are not dishwasher safe. But, they're so worth it for special occasions. Teacups with saucers, as well as dinner, bread, and salad plates are available.

Spalding Stripe Wallpaper

When wallpaper came back in style, I cheered. It’s such a pretty way to decorate a hallway, dining room or to accent just one wall of your bedroom. Ralph Lauren’s Spalding Stripe is simple, clean and works for a variety of styles.

Cantwell Ice Bucket

The Cantwell Ice Bucket is absolutely stunning. Handmade of lead crystal in Hungary, it features a brown saddle leather cover. Embossed with a Ralph Lauren logo, it’s a truly unique piece. And yes, the leather comes off so you can wash it without needing to take a valium first.

Preston Bar Tool Set

I've already professed my love for the Preston Bar Tool Set in my post about bar cart styling, so if you're already in the know, feel free to skip over the next sentences. Featuring an ice shovel, jigger and bottle opener, Preston is extremely modern and functional.  There’s also a matching martini shaker. And because I personally have this set, let me answer your question right now. Yes, the leather can get wet. No, it doesn’t get ruined. Just be careful and you will be fine.

Ashlyn Bedding

Ashlyn Bedding

Bold floral prints are classic Ralph Lauren style. The Ashlyn bedding line reminds me of a spring day. It also might be the perfect choice for a guest room. You could even skip the duvet or comforter (I’m a total duvet girl, but I understnad how they are completely annoying) and just use the sheets and pillowcases to break up a solid comforter. I also think your in-laws and parents would absolutely love this.

Coffee Table Books

Coffee table books are an easy and affordable way to dress up your coffee table or enhance a bookshelf.  You can also leave a coffee table book out and everyone who comes over will think you actually read. Ralph Lauren has several including Speed Style and Beauty: Cars From The Ralph Lauren Collection, Ralph Lauren (surprising title, I know), and Vogue On Ralph Lauren.

Big Pony Dog Polo

Okay, so this Polo for your pooch isn’t technically decor, but I don’t care because it’s so darn cute. Perhaps they kind of are because we all know that dogs, polos and especially dogs in polos are an instant way to upgrade a room.
