I love to watch tennis, especially Wimbledon. I love the history and the old school elegance of the All England Club. But I’m a terrible player so my friend Eleanor Banco Lasko, who is an amazing tennis player and competitor, has graciously helped me put this post together. We’ve been working on it since the […]

It feels like everyone is in Paris right now or just returned like my friend interior designer Andrew Brown. He and his partner Kip took a last minute trip to celebrate Andrew’s birthday. While they were in the City of Light, they took a day trip to Versailles where they quickly toured of the chateau […]

My Recent Etsy Finds

In the past year, I’ve found myself buying much more from Etsy. There are so many lovely and creative people running their entire companies on the platform and offering great prices. I’ve put together some of the things I’ve recently purchased and some things that have caught my eye. I’m not usually one for dupes […]

Ojai Dreaming

This new Ojai Dreaming campaign from Ralph Lauren looks perfect for this long holiday weekend. Who doesn’t want to be lounging on chic striped cushions while enjoying a picnic under a tree? I’ll pass on the laundry though. Hope you have a relaxing extra day off on Monday.

Now that we can go places again, I’ve been trying to check off some of the places I have been wanting to explore in New York. Last Friday, I took a field trip to the Van Cortlandt House Museum which is the oldest building in the borough of the Bronx and run by the National […]

Last year felt like it crawled by at a snail’s pace while this year is flying by. I can’t believe it will be July next week. If you’re coming to the city or just looking for new things to see and do, I’ve got you covered. This week, I attended the Member Preview for The […]

This Fourth of July post has taken me longer to finish than anticipated since I kept adding items. I wanted the whole family to be included since celebrations this year are going to be over the top so I’ve put together over 50 fun items in red, white, and blue to get you ready for […]

I don’t think my obsession with Bunny Mellon will ever end so it was exciting to see another one of her Cape Cod properties, Scallop Path, come on the market last week. The larger 26-acre Cape Cod compound, Oyster Harbors, was sold to billionaire William Koch for $19.5 million in 2012, but she also owned […]

Summer is finally here, and so is the heat and the need for a new summer wardrobe. Fortunately, my friend Heidi Wynne has a new collection of easy linen dresses, casual straw bags, straw hats, and lightweight cashmere wraps. Heidi’s line is classic and doesn’t go on sale, however she is generously offering HC readers […]

Last Thursday, I attended my first event since before the pandemic. It was a beautiful dinner to celebrate the launch of The Virginia Collection, a tableware inspired by Virginia, where Cece Barfield Thompson quarantined during the pandemic. The table for the dinner was set with all the pieces she designed including embroidered linens, porcelain hand-painted […]

I’ve had many requests to put together some dresses and accessories to wear to summer weddings, events, and parties. This was a little harder than I thought it would be since many dresses were sold out of sizes. Even pre-order dresses were already sold out. But I think I’ve pulled some chic options for day […]

Have you always wondered what it would be like to live at Versailles? Well, now you can get your chance at the newly opened five-star Le Grand Contrôle Hotel from the Airelles hotel group which sits within the gates of Versailles. Le Grand Contrôle was built in 1681 by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, Louis XIV’s favourite architect […]

Father’s Day feels more exciting this year as families can gather together again. To make sure you don’t arrive empty handed, I’ve put together over 40 presents perfect for dads of all ages including my friend Howie Guja above who was recently featured on Ralph Lauren. Does the dad in your life love films and […]

I feel like I’m definitely going to have Stendhal Syndrome the next time I go to Paris. For those who aren’t familiar with this illness, it’s is “a psychosomatic condition involving rapid heartbeat, fainting, confusion and even hallucinations, allegedly occurring when individuals become exposed to objects, artworks, or phenomena of great beauty.” Another opening in […]

I can’t believe we’re in June already. It’s amazing how time flies when you’re having fun again. There are so many things going on in New York right now and about to happen so I’ve rounded up the best for you. I haven’t been to the MoMA since I went to the preview of the […]

Sally Perrin of Perrin Paris and Casa Torre Careyes has been back in Paris for a few weeks and I love following along the city as she posts Stories on Instagram. Recently, she posted an art gallery that had taken over an empty hôtel particulier. The group show Grand Ménage put on by Clearing Gallery […]

I keep joking that I’m cut off from shopping every time something is delivered but that didn’t stop me from shopping up a storm in May. A few readers have said they like when I share what I bought so I thought I’d finally put a post together. This embroidered cotton dress is the perfect […]

I apologize for the lack of blog posts since last week. Hopefully, this one will make up for it. I spent the cold and rainy long holiday weekend falling down rabbit holes after searching for more information on a certain hotel particulier in Paris. More on that later. But while I was searching, I came […]
