Fabulously pregnant Fergie was feted last week at her so-called gayby shower at L.A.’s SLS Hotel by famous friends like Lance Bass, Adam Lambert and Julianne Hough. We heard one of the cocktails of choice (for the drinkers, not her) was The Hot Mamma, made with Cuca Fresca, an organic cachaça available at Total Wine & More; as well as fruit purée, simple syrup and fresh lime juice, garnished with a sliced jalapeño. Hubby Josh Duhamel’s tweet: “Who knew a baby shower could be so fun.”

Grab a 90-minute class at Ayama Yoga Center in North Miami Beach, where you’ll be suspended in a special hammock for optimum movement and stretching. From $25; 305-932-7755.

Now at Bloomingdale’s Aventura is a new candle collection by R Nichols. Not only do they smell fabulous, they fit in nicely with any decor.

Each premium wax candle is poured in a sturdy glass and wrapped in a fired-on decal that allows the glow of the flame to accentuate its whimsical graphic. $45 each. www.r-nichols.com
