I’ve posted the directions on how to buy my Paris Guide in Instagram stories and in one of my Bon Weekend posts but it seems to be getting lost. Since people are always messaging me and asking how to buy it, I thought I should create a dedicated blog post so it’s easier to locate. […]

My dear friend Andrew Brown, and interior designer based in Birmingham, Alabama, celebrated his birthday in Zanzibar this year. I was so inspired by his trip that I decided to create outfits based on the colors of his photos. I started with the burnt orange terracotta tiles as inspiration from the first photo take in […]

Nine Orchard

06 . 22 . 22

I love living uptown but we are seriously lacking in the hotel department. That’s why I’m very jealous of the new hotel, Nine Orchard, that just opened downtown. DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners has transformed a 12-story Lower East Side Beaux-Arts landmark building into an elegant hotel and culinary destination. Originally built in 1912, the […]

I know I have slacked off on the blog since before I went to Paris. During the pandemic, it was hard to post because of brain fog but I’m not sure why I can’t get focused lately even though I have so much to post. I’m in Sag Harbor this week so there will be […]

The questions I’m asked most often on Instagram are “where should I go in New York” and “do you have a guide”. People haven’t been to the city in years due to the pandemic so they are planning trips and want to know where to stay and most often, where to eat. I don’t have […]

Cour des Vosges

02 . 13 . 22

While I was working on my posts about the film France and 24 Place des Vosges, I came across a very chic hotel. Cour des Vosges sits at 19 Place des Vosges and is the only hotel with views of the square from every room. The 17th-century historic site is known as the Hôtel de […]

As I’ve mentioned before, I have a love/hate relationship with the HBO show Succession. I don’t like the nouveau riche ridiculousness but I do love it when they shoot on location at a historic house. Episode Eight of Season Three which just aired on Sunday, was shot this past summer in Italy and might be […]

Thank you for all the great feedback on my first two holiday gift guides. I’m sorry some things have already sold out but we’ve put together more than 40 new gift suggestions that are currently in stock that I think your friends and family will love. I love to start each of my gift guides […]

When I visit Paris, I usually rent an apartment because I tend to stay at least 10 days. But I always keep a list of hotels for recommendations and will be adding the new Château Voltaire to the list when it opens in mid October. It is located in the 1st arrondissement which is quite […]

En Vacances 2020

08 . 17 . 21

I always find it amazing that the whole of Europe can be en vacances at the same exact time. I exaggerate of course, but only slightly. I haven’t done a color post in a while so this one is inspired by holidays spend on Greek isles and Italian beaches. @valerieleberichel @aerin Belted lace-trimmed cotton dress […]

I started following designer Camilla Guinness on Instagram earlier this year and was thinking about putting a post together. Today, her villa in Tuscany was featured on House & Garden so it felt like the perfect time. She shares the house named Arniano that she decorated with her daughters Amber and Claudia. Amber lives in […]

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

07 . 06 . 21

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
