One more month left of summer and there is still plenty going on, like another week-and-a-half of Olympics!

Check out a few other fun things to do this month…

Lady Gaga’s first perfume hits stores this month. It’s called “Fame” and the perfume is black! The fragrance, from Haus Laboratories in Paris, contains notes of incense, belladonna, apricot, honey and jasmine samac. Available for pre-order at Macy’s now and in stores August 22.

Whitney Houston appears in her final film, “Sparkle,” a musical drama set in the 1960’s. Whitney plays a single mom to “American Idol” winner Jordin Sparks, an aspiring singer, who becomes a Motown sensation. Opens August 17.

The iconic brand celebrates 71 years with The Legacy Collection, which includes the new “Duffle”, an updated version of Coach’s most iconic bag. The Duffle now comes in more than a dozen shades and features special internal pockets for iPhones and other gadgets that weren’t around when the bag was launched in 1972. The series also includes clutches, outerwear and footwear.

Steven Tyler has left his “mistress” “American Idol” to concentrate on his first love, Aerosmith and I’m sure he’ll have his hands full promoting the band’s first CD since 2004, called “Music From Another Dimension.”

Nordstrom’s famed Anniversary sale continues through this weekend. The deals in the beauty department are especially good and there are special sale items store-wide. Normally, I wouldn’t buy boots now, but I got such a great deal, I couldn’t pass them up. Prices go up Monday August 6.
