Living and working late every night in NYC, weekend brunch with friends is a must. One of my favorite things to do on Saturday is to bike ride to our new favorite brunch spot, Fort Defiance, in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Located far away from subway lines, Red Hook still has [...]

It’s no secret that New Zealand is one of my favorite destinations so I was thrilled to pieces when I heard about Minaret Station on the South Island. Although luxury and camping [...]

Commemorative cups, plaques, and dishes are so blasé. Why not spruce up your celebration of Will-n-Kate’s Royal Wedding by serving jelly in the shape of Buckingham Palace, made in a Bompas & Parr jelly mold? (12.95 GBP from Selfridges).

The menu is to die for with a selection of French comfort food that will leave you in heaven. There is live music every night and the décor is straight out of a Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre [...]
