CELEBRATE THE SUMMERIMG_0759. . .with our favorite champagne Veuve Clicquot, at the beach, lake or anywhere you love to spend the wonderful summer.   This perfect champagne was launched in the late 1700’s, and we wonder if it was Marie Antoinette’s favorite.  It is ours. . .and we enjoyed it in my boathouse.

Available at all fine liquor stores


CATCHING UP WITH A NATURAL BEAUTYIMG_0735IMG_0722IMG_0715Jet setter supermodel and actress Genevieve Morton is busy going to such events as the Washington Correspondence Dinner and Oscar parties. . .and taking Hollywood by storm.  Her star quality shines and I was lucky to catch her for lunch in New York City and get some of her beauty tips.  Simple tricks like using coconut oil over her face and entire body keeps that perfect skin, and baking soda once in awhile for toothpaste.  Her tips must work as she looked gorgeous with nothing but a little mascara, even after her red-eye flight.  We had a delicious lunch at the Gramercy Tavern.IMG_0685


THOSE DIVINE SUNGLASSES ON GENEVIEVE MORTONIMG_0725. . .are from the designer known for her great, sexy swimsuits,  Lulifama.   Now she’s designing great, sexy sunglasses that makes Genevieve look like a Cannes Festival Film star.

WHEN YOU FEEL YOU’VE HAD ENOUGHOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA. . .this is the perfect hideaway.  The most divine resort for a retreat from the world to luxuriate and relax is the Turtle Island Resort in Fiji.  If you love fresh fish caught outside your door (or Bures as the individual cottages are called), water as clear as a swimming pool, and—oh yes—peace and quiet, this is the place for you. . .and your personal Bure “Mama” is there for your every need.



WHO SAYS FLIP FLOPS CAN’T BE GLAMOROUSIMG_0670          Certainly not Kristen’s Kloset, who came up with the very clever idea of adding removable jewels to your favorite beach shoes.

 We love the fleur de lis, but the choices are limitless.
