The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Mummy and the Branson Wedding!

I was just perusing the Daily Mail when my cell phone started ringing in that old familiar tune of Mummy! (I have given her a special ring tone, The Theme from Jaws).

Staring at the phone I ponder, what is she up to today? Well, let's find out!

Cate: "Hellloooo? Mummy?"

Mummy: "How do you do that Cate? I have blocked my number and how did you know it was me?" Humph..."these new I phones are driving me to drink! Yes, please, I will have another...."

Cate: "Mummy where are you and did you just order a drink?"

Mummy: "Yes, dear. Didn't I tell you? Miguel, Evelyn, Daddy and I are in Africa for the Branson wedding. Quite the fun, dear. You should have come too!! Hello your royal Highnesses! That was Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice. They have such nice manners," she explains.

Mummy: "Now Cate, where was I? Oh yes, Africa. We are having a wonderful time. You know the bride, Isabella Calthorpe. She is Lady Curzon's daughter. Cannot remember which one, they are all so pretty and blonde. Oh! Here comes Prince Harry and his girlfriend, Cressida." Whispering: "She is the youngest of Lady Curzon's girls. Dating Harry now. My, my." Hmmm, "Verrry interesting."

Cate: "Well how lovely for you." I chose not to pursue Mummy's fascination with the Curzon family. Poor Miguel, he is probably rolling his eyes at all of Mummy's antics. But wait, maybe he is enjoying himself?

(Small aside, you remember Miguel was my house painter. My mother and her BFF, Evelyn came in for a brief visit and the next thing I knew, Miguel, his happy fiancé, Evelyn and all were jetting to Las Vegas for a wedding. My husband still misses Miguel's cooking. He had so many talents. On a good note, we have lost weight since his departure.)

Cate: "Mummy I didn't know you ran with the Bransons? When do we go to Necker?"

Mummy: "Oh, I will arrange that soon. Sir Richard and Joan are so lovely. Did you know that their daughter, Holly is a Doctor, and the groom, Sam, was that blonde boy Fiona played with on the beach at Bitter End Yacht Club? Too bad Fiona wasn't older at the time," sigh.

(For those of you who don't know, Fiona is my daughter.)

Cate: "Oh yes, I do remember little Sammy. Well he's all grown up and I am sure the bride is lovely." I'm now remembering something I read about a blooming romance with Harry and the bride's sister. All so much to keep up with.

Mummy: "We are at Sir Branson's private Safari Retreat, Ulusaba. Lovely, if you like animals. I personally am getting quite fond of the Elephant herd that comes every evening. I think they like me too!!"

Why am I picturing Babar and the Old Lady in Paris? Never could get over those royal elephants wearing clothing! Just loved those books as a child!! But I digress.

Cate: "Well what's on the agenda this evening?" Knowing full well that they must have fantastic events planned for every hour.

Mummy: "As a matter of fact, tonight is a Fancy Dress Ball. Not the usual affair! We are all to come as animals. Evelyn, Miguel, your father and I are going as a pride of Lions!! I had the costumes done up at Harrods. They did an AMAZING job, I might add."

Cate: "Well do send some photos! I must share these with our friends; I mean it's not every day that we have a Pride in the family!!"

Mummy: "Well must rush, off. Here comes Harry again! Helloooo your Highness!"

Sweetness is dripping off the phone receiver. As I hear Harry say, "Hello Clarissa, fancy seeing you here. Oh, is this Miguel? We have heard so much about him!"

I drop the phone and nearly fall down. Miguel and Prince Harry? In Africa, dressing as lions?? So much for another boring day at Home Depot buying paint!!
