Feasting Pretty: Buvette Gastrothèque in New York City

Buvette 4

The beauty of Twitter is when one breakfast appointment cancels another one takes its place. I went to New York last week and a planned breakfast meeting was canceled the night before. I put on Twitter if anyone wanted to have breakfast with me. One of my followers messaged and the next thing I know [...]

A Celebration of Wine & Family: Q&A With Francis Ford Coppola

FFC Winery

  To know me is to know I love wine. I believe wine is a part of a meal and life is too short to drink bad wine. I recently spent an evening sipping some of my favorite wines from the Francis Ford Coppola Winery before a Q&A with the genius Mr. Coppola. Francis Ford [...]

Feasting Pretty: Smirnoff Ice Peach Bellini

Smirnoff Peach Bellini

I was introduced to the Smrirnoff Ice drinks a few years ago by my cousin. My father-in-law started bringing them to all our parties and I became a fan. I like to change up my beverage selections at our parties and make it easy so I’m not in the kitchen mixing drinks all day. I [...]

Feasting Pretty: Remy Martin XO Cognac

Remy Martin Premier Cru

I have a confession to make. I really didn’t drink spirits until I met my husband. Yes, I had a whiskey, cognac, and scotch here and there. But, really savoring and enjoy a spirit, well wasn’t my thing. I am a wine girl. I love wine and believe one glass a day is actually good [...]

Reading Pretty: Yes, Chef by Marcus Samuelsson

Yes, Chef

Chef crush alert. I have a huge “chef crush” on Marcus Samuelsson. It started years ago when I first ate at Aquavit in New York. Then it morphed into a slight food obsession. The next thing I knew I’m looking at his Ethiopian cookbook and thinking I could create these amazing dishes. His falafel recipe [...]

Feasting Pretty: Why I’m Addicted to My Breville Juice Fountain Plus

Breville Juice Fountain Plus

I am sure you know by now that this juice craze isn’t going away. I am not the person who drinks juices for days and don’t eat. I know many people do juice fasting/cleansing, but it is not my thing. I juice as an addition to healthy and clean eating. I remember when I watched [...]

Feasting Pretty: La Tartine Gourmande Cookbook


The beauty of traveling to places like France is returning home with a sense that I need more nesting in my life. I seriously need time to play. Play with my beauty products and food. I loved the retreat because it allowed someone else to handle the plans. I loved relaxing at the villa in [...]

Feasting Pretty: PX Speakeasy ~ Alexandria, Virginia

Bar Accoutrements

I visited PX Speakeasy for a few hours with my friend Marcia Frost. Marcia was in town doing a story for a magazine and she asked moi to tag along for some of the feasting and sipping. How could I resist. Yoga and food are two of my favorite things outside of beauty and travel. [...]

Feasting Pretty: Pulino’s ~ New York City

Pulino's Breakfast Pizza

I learn so many things from bloggers. Especially about food. Last year Joy featured Pulino’s Bar & Pizzeria and raved about their breakfast pizza on one of her posts about New York. I added the restaurant to my trusty Moleskin New York City Guide and made sure to enjoy this breakfast beauty on my next [...]

Feasting Pretty: Root Liqueur by Art in the Age

Root Liqueur

I normally test and try different libations. I’ve ventured out much more than I used to. I have to thank my husband. I used to only be a wine girl, but I find myself loving spirits more and more. I stumbled upon one of my new favorite liquers recently at a birthday party. It was [...]
