WhiteCherryVodkaEvery once in awhile (usually after watching an episode of Mad Men) we get nostalgic over here at DIVA Headquarters. We dream of the days when cocktail hour was an classy event not just a feeding frenzy at a local bar. Then we snap out of it when we remember that if we lived in Mad Men days we’d all be secretaries instead of DIVAS. That said, we do love a good cocktail!  Recently the ladies in Los Angeles did our first DIVA Beverly Hills cocktail crawl.
First, we started at Dr. Simon Ourian’s Epione. Yes, that’s right! We had cocktails at the famous cosmetic surgeon’s totally chic waiting room which, by the way,  looks like more fashionable lounge than your average bar. Then we headed to Lisa Vanderpump’s Villa Blanca restaurant. We were joined by a select group of fashionable LA ladies including media babes Carly Steel (TV Guide host), Shira Lazar (host of You Tube’s “What’s Trending”). We got a super-secret first look at In Touch/Life & Style Executive Editor Jo Piazza’s new book, Love Rehab 

Our friends at Skinnygirl provided the cocktails and some fun recipes for the DIVAS who didn’t get to join us to try at home.

Skinnygirl Sweet Cherry Lemonade Spritzer

·         1 part White Cherry Skinnygirl Vodka (Yes, white cherry vodka!)

·         3 parts sparkling water

·         1 part freshly squeezed lemon juice

·         Frozen sweet cherries (thawed)

Place ice and thawed cherries into a glass. Mix vodka, water and lemon juice. Pour over ice. Garnish with a fresh lemon wedge.

Drew Barrymore and Kimberly Snyder

Kimberly Snyder, nutritionist to the stars who wrote The Beauty Detox Solution, now plans to launch a West Hollywood-based  juice/smoothie/cleanse spot called Glow BIO (which stands for balanced inside out).  Snyder says she wants to bring her detox message to the masses with organic smoothies, cold-pressed juices, and detox cleanses designed to keep patrons looking — and feeling — forever young and Hollywood glam.

GLOW BIO is no ordinary smoothie/juice shop. As a nutritionist,  Snyder is  fully booked with clients like Drew Barrymore and Fergie  and it isn’t possible for her to be a nutritionist to everyone personally. But going to GLOW BIO, is almost like having her as your own personal juice-meister. She  designed and created all the products and cleanse packages in accordance with her Beauty Detox philosophy.

All of their  bio-nutrient ingredients are organic, live, unrefined and plant-based. All our products are completely bio-available to the highest possible degree with specific enhancing processes- namely pre-hydrated, activated/sprouted, properly combined, and with the strategic addition of probiotics.  At Glow Bio they don’t use  heavily refined products like agave. And some places are organic, but practice poor food combining (like mixing fresh fruit with nuts or protein powder, etc.) and don’t pre-hydrate or activate foods to specifically optimize digestion. At GLOW BIO we do all of that.This certainly isn’t a “build your own juice/smoothie/cleanse” type of shop. You don’t have to think through what’s best for your nutritional health. Snyder has already done that for you.
