Happy summer! HOW did that happen? I mean, it’s been summer weather in Palm Springs for a while now, but it’s still hard to digest that the best time of year is HERE!! Have any fun plans to ring in summer? Here’s what we’re up to + 10 fun things!


We came to LA last night for a fun event hosted by Richard Branson for Virgin Airlines. They were celebrating their 35th birthday plus new direct flights from LA to Manchester, England. I must admit, it piqued my interested in exploring a part of England I’ve never been to before. Have you been to Northern England?

It was also fun hearing Richard Branson’s story of why and how Virgin Airlines was founded (see my Stories). Hint: Love…or at least lust.

After work today, we’re looking forward to drinks with friends tonight at SoHo House. Then tomorrow, we’re finally seeing my friend Dee’s beautiful home. You may have caught peeks on Domino. She’s the one who designed my Soaking Room!

Then we’ll spend the rest of the weekend in Palm Springs, where Sal will be joining us for lots of pool time. The perfect kickoff to summer!

I hope you have wonderful weekend + enjoy 10 fun things!


1. Dressing Funny, Tan France’s new digital series where he dresses comedians and funny people, is now streaming on Netflix’s YouTube channel!

2. This chic round bag reminds me of a vintage hat box.

3. Gloria Vanderbilt’s life in photos. What a life!

4. These lemon poppyseed muffins sound divine and easy to make.

5. Wait, is this why women get so many autoimmune diseases? Here I just thought it was hormones…

6. Who knew Mexico’s wine country existed and was so close to home? I want to go to there.

7. Speaking of travel, this guide to summer in France has me dreaming of a stay at Hotel Belles Rives.

8. Ralph Lauren’s entire family wore tuxes to see him get knighted at Buckingham Palace. How cute is that?!

9. Emily Henderson blogged her thoughts on the Goop Wellness Summit and the Internet lost its mind (comments got so heated, she took the post down). But she’ll be re-posting this afternoon and I’m all ears waiting to read what all the hoopla was about. WHY is GOOP so triggering???

10. Reese Witherspoon’s Big Little Lies mansion is available to rent in Malibu. Who wants to go in halvsies?

Thanks, as always, for reading xo!
