Welcome to the Ravin RoundUp, where content and commerce meet for cocktails!

By Marta Ravin, Award-winning Showrunner and Executive Producer

It may be getting mixed reviews but I'm loving Palm Royale on Apple TV.

Featuring an incredible cast of leading women — Kristen Wiig, Allison Janney, Laura Dern, Leslie Bibb, Mindy Cohen (that’s right, Natalie from Facts of Life), Julia Duffy (the spoiled maid from Newhart) AMERICAN ICON Carol Burnett and remember the hottie from Sweet Home Alabama? Josh Lucas!!! And as if all of that star power was not enough…Ricky Martin!! Who at 52 looks unbelievable. I don’t know who's doing his Botox but…HE BANGS!

This show is everything you want in an hour of escapism — laughs, intrigue and style! Kristen Wig plays Maxine Dellacorte-Simmons, a former Pageant Queen runner up from nowhere Tennessee who marries the black sheep of the Palm Beach Dellacorte Dynasty ruled by a comatose Carol Burnett (who is still hysterical even on a ventilator.) Maxine is determined to have her husband claim his rightful place as heir to the Dellacorte fortune while she makes it to the top of 1969 Palm Beach High Society.

Apple makes you wait for Wednesdays to watch each episode of this masterpiece which has given me plenty of time to find some fabulous fashion, books, home accessories and a VERY special treat all inspired by Palm Royale and just in time for Mother’s Day! Let’s Round it Up!


Block Party

Okay get ready for the brand of shoes you may never have heard of but… SCHUTZ has created the perfect white, mid block heel to wear at the club this summer! The white Enola with gold buckles is perfect with a long dress or pants and if you’re going to an outdoor wedding you don’t have to worry about your heel getting stuck in the grass!

Priced at $158, there’s also a version with a higher heel and it also comes in black and tan. When you go to the SCHUTZ website you can get 20% off your first purchase!


Cardsy B’s In The House!

Now I don’t know about the rest of you but I like to keep my tarot card reader on speed dial! And Cardsy B is the absolute best! She does 30- and 60-minute zoom readings for individuals or groups from her gorgeous tarot card deck she designed herself, where each card represents a female icon. Her predictions are SPOT ON! I literally can't make a move without her. And you my faithful readers can get the Cardsy B experience at 20% off. Just use the code: RavinRoundup.


Ice Bucket List

You can’t do Palm Beach without a cocktail so of course you need the perfect ice bucket! I have had an emotional shopping roller coaster with this amazing Coral Cheetah Ice Bucket from Katie Kime. I bought it, then returned it, because it seemed extravagant for the new and improved fiscally responsible Marta (she’s soooooo boring!). But I would love to live vicariously through one of my readers. If coral is not your color it also comes in hot pink and then more subdued hues like navy, dark green and red. It’s priced at $118 but you can get 20% off with code RAVINROUNDUP! Do it for the Cheetahs! (code expires 5/31)


Thrilling Give Away

You know how you're never supposed to meet your heroes, well I met one of mine years ago and she has remained a friend ever since. (But I’m still basically a super fan!) It’s Kate White — former Cosmopolitan Magazine Editor and Chief who turned her passion for mysteries into an incredible 2nd career writing thrillers.

I have read every one of her books and they are the perfect blend of a strong female protagonist, mystery and style. Her new book, The Last Time She Saw Him comes out on May 14th and I’ve had it on Pre-order since January! And she’s generously gifting one to a lucky RavinRoundup reader PLUS her last two in a fabulous Kate White bundle. First person to DM me “RAVIN ROUNDUP” gets the bundle!

And of course I couldn’t resist asking the Cosmo queen a question- no it’s not about orgasms…I asked her what’s her #1 go to beauty product?

Well that’s it for this weeks’ RoundUp if you want to sign up for my newsletter on beehiiv please subscribe below. I promise only to deliver the most fun stuff ever to your inbox.
