All posts in bon weekend

I wasn’t sure what to expect when the Metropolitan Museum of Art decided to rent out the old Whitney Museum on Madison Avenue to create the Met Breuer, new space dedicated to modern and contemporary art. Their first exhibition Unfinished: Thoughts Left Visible is one of the most interesting and original shows I’ve seen in a […]

Suited Up

04 . 29 . 16

This was an exhausting non-stop week. So exhausting in fact that I feel asleep during a LED light treatment at Dr. Wade‘s office this afternoon. Part of my week was filled with meetings that had me thinking that maybe I need to buy a new suit. In a stroke of lucky timing, the new May 2016 issue of the […]

I’m off to Sag Harbor this morning for a little weekend getaway with a friend before celebrating my birthday on Monday at The Polo Bar. I’ve never been out east this early in the season but I’m looking forward to a relaxing stay at Baron’s Cove again. I also can’t wait to stop by the open […]

The Tribeca Film Festival is a very exciting time in New York for movie buffs. I was very lucky to get tickets to new documentary The First Monday in May last night and can’t say enough good things about the film. It was conceived by Andrew Rossi who previously directed the award winning documentary Page One: Inside […]

It’s cold and rainy in Paris this morning, so I’m dreaming of warmer weather and the new spring collection at J. McLaughlin is making me dream even harder. I love all the pretty colors and fun patterns that are perfect for work and weekend. I want to be wearing all of them while enjoying some sunshine. To help […]

By the Sea

11 . 13 . 15

I’m not really a fan of Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt but I was intrigued enough by their new film to put aside my prejudices and see the film last night. By the Sea is set at a seaside hotel in the South of France in the 1970’s which is really what peeked my interest. […]

If you are looking for something to do this weekend, I highly recommend the new documentary Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict. I had the pleasure of seeing the film earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival and it was the sole reason I decided to add Venice to my Italy trip itinerary this fall. This […]

I’ve visited Paris in September when it was still summer and also in November when it looked and felt like winter but I’ve never visited Paris in the height of autumn. After my trip last week, I now want to plan a trip for every October. It was even more beautiful than spring. But while they […]

Denim Days

09 . 18 . 15

It’s been unseasonably warm in New York this week so I am still wearing my summer dresses. I hope it cools off soon so I can finally start wearing jeans but the weather didn’t stop many from wearing denim during fashion week. Mira Duma, above, made it her uniform. I especially love those who dressed up their […]

The Essentials

08 . 21 . 15

I came across the Matches Fashion The Essentials fall video below on Instagram and love the white interiors as much as the fashion. It looks like a home you’d find in the UK magazine Living Etc. I also appreciate that realistic clutter makes it look like someone actually lives in the house. The best part is […]

This has been one of those weeks where I have a million things to write about but have been endlessly distracted. Maybe I’m in need of an August vacances like the French and everyone else in Europe.  I promise I am going to get it together this weekend and be back at the top of my […]

I’m taking the day off today. Well, not really. I still have a lot of little projects and errands on my “to do” list to prepare for the photo shoot in my apartment next week. But I am taking a break from the blog. While I’m away, I highly recommend you check out the Nordstrom […]

Sunny Summer Saturday

07 . 25 . 15

There is nothing better than a sunny summer Saturday, especially when the humidity is low.  I spent most of my day outside reading which included the chic August 2015 issue of Condé Nast Traveler, on my favorite Missoni Home beach towel, while slathered in Clinique SPF 30, while wearing my favorite Celine sunglasses. Hope you had […]

Porter magazine just announced today that Daria Werbowy will grace different two versions of their fall 2015 issue. It won’t be out until next week so until then, I’m going back to look at the beautiful photos that Mikael Jansson shot of her in Sweden for Interview magazine. Even though she’s a tall model with […]

I posted this photo of my bar on Instagram and had a lot of questions about where to find some of the items. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to share some bar building ideas on the blog because it’s five o’clock somewhere. The glass tortoise ice bucket in my photo is from Aero […]

Do Not Disturb

07 . 04 . 15

Whether you’re celebrating Independence Day in the USA or escaping the heat wave in Europe, I hope no one disturbs you. Although, I think that would be easier if you had this chic Do Not Disturb hat which I’m definitely ordering for myself. Bon weekend! Photo via Gary Pepper Girl.
