Medieval France

Saint Jeannet - part of the Route des Villages Perchés (Route of Perched Villages). 
Kind of looks like Seneca Rocks, but with a beautiful village below.

Hello Moto

 Sweet new friends and neighbors, Paul and Lisa whisked us away to Temecula for wine tasting and introduced us to Doffo Wines.
 The wine makers not only make great red wine with good cheer; they also have a serious italian motorcycle collection. Go MarceloMy favorite part of this visit was the sexy Argentine barbecue! We need one (a new dimension to my fixation with the motorcycle diaries)!

Happy Weekend

I'm looking forward to sunshine and a lush outdoor life in my garden.

Mena and Nina

Guy and I saw The Hunger Games last week and loved it after sitting through many sad previews, including the American Pie movie. It looks awful. I am a great fan of the fabulous Mena Suvari, who is promoting this reunion disaster, and her fabulous chameleon ethos. She has a bold, playful approach to her personal style and is overall, a phenom! Mena has jumped onto the messy 80's hair bandwagon, and is channeling original MTVJ, Nina Blackwood just a little, right down to the bleach and black. Those vj's are badass, except for Alan.

Cake and Waaves

My gorgeous sister, Suz, brother, Patrick 
and nephew, Riley 
arrived for the holiday weekend with spectacular weather welcoming them into our new world. We had a lovely holiday together, except we were missing our eldest daughters, Solveig and Samantha, and mom and dad. Lots of time by the pool, long walks in the garden. Saturday we packed up for the afternoon and drove to Malibu to say hello to the ocean and have some lunch. We found Kristy's Wood Oven and Wine Bar and loved the view, the pizza, and the hefeweizen 
most worth mentioning was the coconut cream cake - we thought there may be some kind of old fashioned seven minute frosting going on

Spa La La


in the weeks ahead I will be checking out spas my sis and I are interested in visiting in southern california. My search will begin in Palm Springs as Coachella approaches and the kids are making their plans. The mamas need fun, too. Given the repeated Talisker pours in this video, The Parker Palm Springs seems like the logical choice.

What I Would Wear Today

for a temperate early April supper! 
Leandra Medine of Man Repeller looking fabulous at a fancy Ferragamo fragrance launch. Have no idea who she's wearing or what, and it would take too much time to find out. The important thing is she looks like the ideal girl in tailored denim, frosty blazer and signature arm party!

En Total - Chloe

Chloe on Mr. Blasberg's best dressed this week? Hell yes! Proenza Schouler's springy pastel origami skirt and digging the top, black accessories I really like it, I do. Don't know what to say about her bobbed hair? the lo-fi version of edgy messy.
