What more can you ask for than an event which combines the art of people watching and polo. After hearing all the buzz about this annual event, a few girlfriends and I made our way to the polo field which was held at the Will Rodgers Historic Park courtesy of Veuve Clicquot. Armed with a much needed umbrella and a refreshing drink, I was ready for the festivities to begin. It was an absolute treat to be surrounded by friends with a little picnic in tow as we waited for the polo match to start (cue Pretty Woman vibes). This preppy soiree was well worth the anticipation, as I took in all the glamorous looks - men in seersucker suits and women in gorgeous frocks. Also any excuse to dress up is a win win in my books. Looking forward to next year!
After accidentally being dropped off in the back alley by uber, I finally made my way to Vice's show & tell at their Venice office last week and boy was it a good one. Though I'm bummed that I didn't get my tarot cards read by Angie Banicki, it was a great crowd and an informative evening. The tacos were flowing, while the hum of voices chattering grew. I was definitely people watching to my hearts content. 👍🏽
There is something about stumbling upon a new culinary treat that makes my taste buds tingle with delight. Dining isn't just about food, it's also about the atmosphere and the people within it. That's where Babette's comes in.
During my time in London, I had the unique opportunity to see first hand this beautiful dynamic. Laughter amongst the staff, patrons eagerly awaiting their meals, lovers enveloped in each others company and so forth. That's something you cannot force, it just is.
Babette, the owner is a breathtaking human being, seeing good in people, providing little nuggets of pure wisdom, and encompassing the je ne sais quoi of every french woman. Plus she makes the most amazing hot sauces that I cannot find in the states.
If you ever catch yourself in London, you should check out this magical spot. Fin.
