Today brings us to The Lemon Grove at Coldwater Canyon. Wearing an amazing Fendi sheer, ruffled front skirt, a crisp white button down shirt by Zara (talk about Pennies & Posh) and a pair of insanely fabulous YSL platform pumps. Not exactly the perfect lemon picking outfit… but when you find out the how many benefits this little yellow sphere holds…. you will completely understand why I dressed for the occasion!
A few years back…. I did a little story on my dear friend and actress, Dyan Cannon. It was a tip based story about how a woman in her mature years could look so beautiful, thin and sooooo young. Let me please digress….
Right before I wrote that story…. I had dinner at The Ivy with the beautiful Dyan. Ms. Cannon ordered enough food for a pack of hungry truck wolves. I am the Queen of ordering… but even I was surprised! She proceeded to eat most of it… I am talking an order of fried mushrooms included! The Ivy has the best specialty drinks on the planet… so I of course expected Dyan to order up something fun and exciting to go along with her massive quantities of food…. Not! She had cup after cup of hot water with half a lemon squeezed in each serving. Now Dyan is one of the thinnest women I know. What allows a woman with the body of a teen-ager to consume that amount of food…. and still stay so thin? After grilling her all night on anti-aging tips…. The Lemon Water is the one thing that stayed on my mind. There had to be a correlation between the…. ageless skin, the most amazing body I have ever seen on a woman that age, the shiny hair… the list goes on. Dyan drinks hot lemon water all day and night and I am 100% convinced that is her secret to the fountain of youth….
When life gives you lemons… do like Dyan…. and squeeze them into hot water!
This is one of the best things we can do for our bodies!! Grab a cup of steaming water… and squeeze a half of lemon. Let’s find out Dyan’s anti-aging secret…..
