Crash Course: Guide to St. Tropez

July 20, 2018

As promised here is our St Tropez guide. We have been spending summers in France (St. Tropez) since I was very little.    My earliest memories are of the crowded, hot market, weaving my way through the crowds hand in hand with my older cousin.    We still love to visit the market and I find that in May/June when we visit, it’s far less crowded than it is in mid-August.   Still, I recommend going early if you can, everything…

Quick Post: My Top 5 Summer Staples

July 19, 2018

I’m not going to lie, I brought a lot of clothes to France this year.   Partly because it was a long trip, but also because I knew that there would be so many events and occasions on which I would wish to wear x or y.   It might have been a bit overkill, and I actually prefer to pack in a more efficient way (lesson learned) because no matter how much I bring with me, I tend to slip into…

Dreamy Routines: Patisserie Run

July 17, 2018

One of our favorite parts of being in France is the food.     The produce is out of this world delicious.   The melon is the best I have ever had, it’s no wonder my grandmother had one every morning for breakfast.    The cheeses, fresh fish, sausages, croissants and pastries are also a highlight for us.    While we didn’t miss a single morning for croissants — they were always on the table, usually still warm — doing the (pastry)…

The Most Romantic Nights…

July 13, 2018

A few years ago, my cousin got married at our family house in France.    The house was brimming over with women preparing for the big weekend, and there was so much chatter about manicures and hair appointment times, I could tell that my (new) husband was hitting his limit (bored senseless, and he has a very high tolerance!).    I quickly and quietly extracted him for a mind-clearing drive.   Naturally, we ended up at the beach.   It was a…

Poolside Cards With Over the Moon!

July 12, 2018

One of the most special things about the house in France is the pool.    It sits down the hill between the two houses and provides an oasis for guests, as well as a totally relaxed daytime activity, especially after a big night.    It has lots of day beds and floats and is just a really lovely relaxed way to spend the day at home with no pressure or agenda.     I remember growing up, we spent most days…

Setting the Table from Start to Finish

July 10, 2018

By now you know that I love a pretty table, especially one adorned with lots of flowers and candles.   I thought it might be a fun change of pace to talk about how I think about setting the table, and at the bottom, there’s a video of the entire process of getting ready for the evening with friends. We were so lucky to be able to pick up fresh flowers and produce from the market in St. Tropez on Saturdays…
