No French Fries in French Lick!

There are many detox retreats throughout the country, but one of the best is in French Lick, Indiana, near the heart of the Midwest, a.k.a., Heart Attack Alley.To get the most out of your experience, I recommend binging on potatoes, and cheese, and potatoes covered in cheese, and when you can no longer pry your stomach loose from below the steering wheel, head on over to Detox Oasis.

As a complimentary service they keep on hand the Jaws of Life. Detox Oasis is a strong proponent of wheat grass and liquid meals, and nature, and nightly movies about wheat grass, and walks through the woods where you can see Robins and Blue Jays eating succulent, tantalizing worms, where you might witness a murder of crows tearing apart a rotting carcass and you think to yourself, sipping your wheat grass smoothie, ?how can I get some of that?? Truly for anyone lacking the will power to ?DROP THAT LAST FRENCH FRY!?

Detox Oasis is the gentle drill master to whip you into shape, at least until the next high fructose, highly saturated backslide.

$1500 or more per week. Visit

French Connection

There are some pieces that turn heads. Of course, some people also turn heads (Marilyn Manson, Madonna,?Dick Cheney etc.) but I mean??turning heads? in a good, Blake Lively-esque way.

The pieces from the French company On Aura Tout Vu are as interesting as they come (okay, let me rephrase that. Heidi Montag from The Hills is interesting ? well, she?s weird, but interesting. I could follow her all day with a handy cam and get my daily fix of humor because? she?s that interesting).

Back to On Aura Tout Vu. With plenty of hardware on their shoes, belts, caps, buckles, bags (all the grommets and brass zippers one could ask for!), there?s no piece that will fail to elicit some emotion from you. And did we mention that the hardware-rich collections serve as an alternative to your tool shed? If you need nails, just pull out a piece of your handbag. If you want a Phillips Head, reach down and get the heel from your shoe. Multi tasking is the next big thing in fashion.

The Noah?s Ark is a spectacularly blingy collection of brooches (all animals, insects, reptiles). Their bags make my eyes drool.
