Something White, something Red, something Blue

4th of July is here. In between running around with the girls from one activity to another, the holiday just arrived.  I can’t believe how fast summer is going. It’s the time of year of going from one BBQ to another, from the beach to the pool.

I know the web is full of 4th of July idea boards, but still I had to create my own chic version for the long weekend. I just love Prada’s take on the stud trend. The shoes are subtle and cool, and the sunglasses are just pure fun! J Brand always offer the most beautiful minimalist garments that just look and feel fabulous. The jeans with the camisole, shoes, sunglasses and clutch just make the perfect outfit.  Effortless chic for the Holiday weekend! I found the recipes at and I can hardly wait and try them out.

Eat, drink, be happy and safe!

A New York minute for two

In October my husband and I “stole” a weekend to ourselves in New York without the girls. It was great spending time just the two of us away from the pressure of day-to-day family life. At some point I felt guilty I was having so much fun.

So, what did we do?

We went to lunch at “Sant Ambroeus” where we saw Carolina Herrera and I was completely star struck! Later that day, we went to the New York Philharmonic where we listened to Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 11. It was amazing! Truly music that fills your soul and heart with joy. I don’t remember the name of the restaurant where we ate a very late dinner. We just wandered around until we found a place that had a table. It didn’t matter because the company we had was so much fun. I do remember eating a steak at 1AM, not really the best idea.

We ate Sunday brunch at “De Santos” where they serve unlimited champagne cocktails. If that wasn’t enough we went dancing  in the middle of the day at “Bagatelle”. That was an experience .Every 10 minutes or so, the DJ stopped the music and played the Superman theme music. At that point, four waiters carried a fifth waiter dressed as superman holding a bottle of Dom Perignon glowing in the dark. Only in New York…

In between all the partying and eating I was able to go visit my best friend who just had her first baby that weekend. I was so happy I was able to be there with her and for her. It made the whole trip much more special!

It was a short weekend but a magnificent one. The weather was amazing, love was in the air and the whole city at our disposal. Truly a new york minute for two.
