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

FLAUNT FABULOUS WEEKEND WITH SOME OF THE FLAUNT FORTY!

NAMASTE & CHARDONNAY

A few weeks ago I got an invitation from one of the Flaunt Forty (my posse that I hang with) to come to a party. Well, one would think cocktails with husbands in tow but NO this was different! Oh do I highly recommend this party as a flaunt must do! It was a girl's weekend for 14 of us! But not just any weekend!

Let's start with the invitation. On the front was a picture of a woman doing Yoga? "What?" you say. I open it up and of course there was the usual date, time, and place, but it had a list of all the things the hostess had prepared for us. Are you curious now?

First of all we were all to arrive at 6PM the first day to have cocktails and chit chat! As usual this member of our Flaunt Forty posse does not do anything on the cheap! Not only did she have containers of Sangria and lemon water but there was a full bar replete with Mojitos and a gorgeous bartender. A bartender was not needed for only 14 women but this hunk arrived with one of our instructors and volunteered. So the fun began!!

The group mingled and caught up and met our Yoga instructor and our Pilates instructor. Now I can hear your minds clicking away. YOGA and PILATES! Yes! But I will get to that later.

Following cocktails we had a buffet dinner that had been prepared by a chef for us! Yes, a beautiful salad, salmon, wild rice, sautéed mushrooms, and grilled asparagus. We also had delicious dinner rolls that had lavender in them from her garden! For dessert she served fresh strawberries, chocolate cake and whipped cream! (Not from the can!!) Probably everyone's attire at this point was getting a little tight!

You would think that would be the end to the evening but NO, we then had a discussion about Meditation and Yoga from our Yoga instructor. I must admit here I have never done Yoga before. Pilates yes, Yoga no, so I was very interested to see what this was all about. When the Yoga instructor asked if everyone had done Yoga before and I raised my hand and said, "No", she commented, "My you are brave." The thought did go through my mind, "What have I gotten myself into?"

Now I have to add here that everyone came in their yoga outfits. Of course my BFF, LB had her yoga outfit with this little filmy top over it, a jacket in case she got cold, and a large sun hat. Don't ask but the woman always has to have a hat on her head or at least enter the room with one! Hmmm, wonder if she carrying her Block? Have gun will travel!

But getting back to the party. Before you know it we were all on the floor doing stretches and contorting ourselves into pretzels. I learned a Side Plank Pose, Revolved Side Angle, Balasana child pose and a Corpse Pose that I will say was a great way to end our half hour session. All of this was done to very soft music in the background and total silence on our parts, except for our instructor explaining each move. As a small aside our hostess has a party room that is approximately 50 feet wide by 125 feet long. So there was lots of room!

Now some of the Ladies actually spent the night at her home. I frankly have gotten over slumber parties years ago and went home to be in my own bed. A very good plan since I was asleep at 10PM as a result of my detox with the Yoga! And from what I found out they were all up until midnight!

That was day one!

Day two arrives with a nature walk for one hour. I begged off of that one - puhleese, walking with Mother Nature at 7 AM for an hour was not happening. Remember I have been killing myself doing work on my fifteen acres and battle with the Rattlesnakes!

Upon my arrival I hear that the girls dined on Green Smoothies after their hike. I don't have a problem with green smoothies, with the girls, but I really didn't want to start my morning with them. A little to many female hormones! So my plan to join them at 9AM for our 30 minute Pilates class was working out well.

So Pilates we did with our instructor and all of our cores had to have been strengthened! God knows after all of the food we consumed the night before they needed it!

But what next?

Bobbi Brown reps came! How much fun was this? LOTS! They gave everyone who wanted a makeover one!! Now I enjoyed watching but I have tried Bobbi Brown products and unfortunately their eye makeup does not agree with me. I'm allergic to it! But as I said, it was fun just watching them do makeup. And of course we all got a laugh out of the before and after pictures!

Now what? LUNCH! Many salads and white wine for all! It was now time to go home and take a nap! 

That was a flaunt fabulous (FF) party for your girl friends!!!

Alexandra
