Sacramento Manic Monday: The Shady Lady

I had the pleasure of visiting the Shady Lady Saloon a couple of weeks ago with my husband and some good friends. This is a very cool place. It's somewhat new to Sacramento. It opened its doors in 2009. I wish I had taken up a friend's offer a while ago to accompany her to this fun bar/restaurant. Yet, I'm glad I finally made my way over to the Shady Lady and was able to experience the great ambiance and service at this place.
The Shady Lady is a throwback to the Prohibition Era with a touch of modern class thrown in to its decor, drinks, food, and atmosphere. They offer live music 7 days a week - whether that's a local jazz singer/ensemble or a dj, there WILL be music playing for people to enjoy. They offer a variety of American Classic and Southern inspired dishes for patrons to choose from on their menu until the kitchen closes at midnight. The drink menu is definitely enticing and offers a variety of libations. And, the bartenders at the Shady Lady know their stuff! My husband wanted to order a beer, but wasn't sure what to get, so he asked the bartender for help in choosing. The entire staff was both knowledgeable and very helpful...not to mention polite and enthusiastic! Oh, and you can't forget about the photo booth! The Shady Lady has an old school photo booth set up near the door so you can capture a fun night with friends before leaving the saloon.

OMG! This dude is hilarious! Oh the things you'll find when there's nothing else to do besides sit in your house with the heater blasting, snuggled on the couch with your cozy blankie and your doggies, scouring youtube for things that interest/entertain you! Ha!
Anyways....thought I'd share what I found via my latest obsession with youtube! Enjoy!!

Eyebrow Waxing

For someone who just recently started waxing her own eyebrows (read: we're in a recession and I feel the need to save $ where I can), I find this video inspiring and informative:

Eating Out Tips

Good ideas, right?

Bethenny's Breakfast Recipe

Another healthy, yummy recipe from Bethenny. This is my new obsession, by the way. Can you tell?!?

P.S. How is it that I'm just now finding these videos??? Gotta love youtube!

I Die - LOL!!

Ok, this is kind of mean and inappropriate considering the fact that I happen to actually like Rachel Zoe, but I can't help posting this. I find it to be hilarious! It's all in good fun and not to be taken seriously...at least that's my take on it!

Recipe Via Bethenny

Here's some more from my girl Bethenny, who I definitely think is a Power Girl. (Not to mention super witty and smart.) This is a great recipe!

Closet Confession With Bethenny Frankel

I love Miss Bethenny...and I'm very excited her show, Bethenny Ever After, is back! Check out her Closet Confession. It's too cute!!

P.S. I love the shoe boxes and the separate rack for accessories. I happen to use the same shoe boxes she has for my own heels and I also use a separate accessorie rack like she does. You know they say great minds think alike. ;)

True Whit

Hometown Girl: Model Allie Crandell

One of my favorite models who happens to be from my city, Sacramento!!

Listen Up Power Girls!!

Alright, here's some more insight from Ms. Cutrone about cheaters and liabilities for all you smart women out there trying to make your way to your destiny. Don't let someone be a liability to you!!

Words Of Wisdom From My Girl, Kelly!

Ok, so although I refer to her as "my girl" like she's a personal friend or something, she's not. Unfortunately. I wish it were true, though, because she seems like she'd be such a cool friend to have. She's definitely got some great words of wisdom and isn't afraid to be true to who she is. I respect that. A LOT!
Anyway...here's a cool clip of her speaking at a book signing. This spoke to me in a very personal way. I totally get what she's saying and think this is great advice for young people wanting to go out and seek their dreams.
