It crept up on me but summer is officially here. Most of June was spent celebrating the end of the school year for Sebastian, a two-week break which included a trip to Sesame Place, and then the start of camp. We’ve also been devoting a ton of time to a major new project, which I’ll unveil soon!

Lipton Iced Tea and Katharine McPhee hosted a Summer TASTE party at the Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club down at South Street Seaport to celebrate the arrival of the summer solstice and unveiled a one-of-a-kind illuminated installation aimed at providing 24-hours of sunlight to New Yorkers. The view overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge was incredible, as was the company, photo booth with A Mommy in the City, and the fruity iced tea cocktails.

Katharine McPhee couldn’t have been lovelier. She was throwing back cocktails which I obviously appreciate. I had the chance to sit down with her for a chat and gushed about Smash and asked about her amazing skin. Here are the 2 beauty products she can’t live without, which I published over on Babble Beauty.

I didn’t realize the “beach club” actually included sand so my getup was a tad conspicuous but fortunately some party planning genius anticipated Glamamoms like me and provided #hashtag flip flops.

Have a glamorous week!

    Killer dress! It dress reminds me a little of Clover Canyon, but better suited for summer than their neoprene creations!
