Hot stuff celebrities love


Check in

When it comes to raiding the hotel mini bar, you might be accustomed to snagging an impromptu champagne split, a late-night “intimacy kit,” or an $8 bottle of Fiji when you’re too hung over to search for more reasonably priced water. Now at the Delano, you can also purchase a few items (from Animal Crackers to so-called Empowered Panties) for a good cause with the Citizens of the World program in partnership with the Heifer, FEED and Seven Bar foundations. Time for a staycation.

Fire up

Not only do new premium wax candles from R Nichols smell fabulous, they also fit in with your decor. The designs are a collaboration between two advanced brains: illustrator Nick Hanzlik (“French Women Don’t Get Fat”) and fragrance expert Gary McNatton, former Senior VP of Gap. Turn down the lights to accentuate the whimsical graphics and lusciously evocative scents. Out of the 12, we fancy Surf, a mix of salt air and driftwood. $45 each at Bloomingdale’s Aventura, www.r-nichols.com


The CW Network’s cameras are long gone from The Catalina, but a cool ambience remains at the hotel’s Kung Fu Kitchen & Sushi. The lobby resto-lounge just unrolled its moderately priced “Seoul Food” menu, paying tribute to the Oriental legacy of BBQ. Owner/ex reality star Nathan Lieberman promises that all sauces and seasonings are homemade and the herbs grown on premises. If you want a spicy start to your evening, let him suggest the Kung Fu Kick cocktail, with tequila, passionfruit puree and red hot chili peppers. The real kick: It’s only $4.


There’s almost always a South Florida connection. Ke$ha has teamed up with Pompano Beach designer Charles Albert for Ke$ha Rose, her first jewelry line. A little bit goth with a dash of girly punk, the edgy collection ($30-$750) has its share of skulls, evil eye charms and teeth, replicas of ones her more devoted fans sent over. How... sweet? www.kesharosebycharlesalbert.com 800-410-1112


August just gets hotter, if that’s possible. You may want to think about pouring some Vikingfjord Vodka into your next adult beverage. The Norwegian brand has partnered with mixologist Meaghan Dorman of NYC hot spot Raines Law Room to create a few cooldown recipes. We like the way the Summer Fever (with ginger beer and appled brandy) sounds. So do celebs like Minnie Driver, Brad Goreski and Cat Deely. Buy a bottle at · Jensens Liquors, Top Hat Wine & Spirits and ABC Fine Wine & Spirits.
