Our annual Monday Morning Mimosas was a blast (co-hosted with Russell+Hazel) and I would like to thank everyone for taking the time out of your schedules to join us.
I’ll post photos soon
BTW: “Le Poire” at the Royalton Hotel comes highly recommended by moi: Grey Goose Poire vodka, Pear slice & champagne!

Packing for work/trade shows, however, is another story. I find myself dumping my entire wardrobe in my (very, very, very large) suitcase. When C introduced me to these Eagle Creek Pack-It Folders I was skeptical at first, but was quickly converted when I realized I could cram (without wrinkles, no less) all my clothes for a week-long trip in one folder.
Also essential are the Nalgene leakproof bottles. No more lotion explosions!
Now if only there was a way to shrink my size nine shoes so I could cram more in my bag …
Designer Arik Levy recently won a well deserved Elle Deco International Design Award for the circle vase design. C says the vase is deceptively simple: it looks plain but is quite difficult to make. I have a feeling that next time she finds some time at the studio she will be attempting to learn the technique so she may apply it to her own gorgeous designs!
