Celebrate

If you need July 4 party ideas, here’s one: SKYY Vodka has teamed up with L*SPACE Swim this summer to launch the American Beauty Bottle. The cobalt design comes dressed in a bikini with star and stripes print. Festive, patriotic and sexy? Check, check, check. $18.49 for 750 ml at Grove Liquors & Checkers Liquors (Cutler Bay). The actual bathing suit is $143 at www.mollybrownsswimwear.com

Michael Shannon, Roger Berman (Mr. Rachel Zoe) and Jessica Alba have already discovered The Bouqs, an online platform to order flowers that cost just $40 a pop with shipping and other fees included. The arrangements, curated by famed floral designer Eric Buterbaugh, come straight from eco-friendly, sustainable farms. Pick by “Sentiment,” “Type” or “Color” (we’re loving the patriotic roses for July 4). www.thebouqs.com

Do good

Woody Harrelson is one-upping tree hugging. The actor is the co-founder of Prairie Pulp & Paper Inc., which spent 15 years researching and developing its new Step Forward Paper, made of wheat-straw waste and wood fiber rather than virgin trees. The company says replacing two packs of traditional office paper with their product saves one tree. Cheers to that. www.stepforwardpaper.com

Check in

Motivation for a staycation: NYC lingerie designer Arielle Shapiro of Ari Dein (whose designs were seen on CW’s “Gossip Girl”) has created a custom pajama set for W South Beach Hotel. During July, guests who check into a VIP Suite can take the short-sleeved cotton PJs home. A few pairs will also be sold at the property for $165.

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for MindBodyGreen.com and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
