Just take a LOOK at this lineup.

Who’s joining us for this weekend’s kickoff to summer?

We’re sharing summer party trends, DIY Sangria Bar, signing books, setting the seasonal table and so much more.

We’ll be sneak peeking, posting and sharing all weekend long from Menlo Park – so be sure to follow along on Facebook, Instagram and of course Twitter, so you don’t miss a single trick – or trend.

Cover Contest – Summer Issue A Perfect Event!



Not sure how…

Not sure when…

But somehow – it’s already summer!

Our Facebook cover contest ends tonight – so make sure to tell us your favorite cover shot for the new issue launching this weekend.

Thank you to our dear tastemaker friends Suzy Brown and Corey Amaro for the seriously gorgeous summer cover pics…

And cheers to a simply stunning summer.

Dream Wedding sneak peek on Windy City Live!



Happy Windy City Live Dream Wedding Day!

Did you tune in today?

Just a little sneak peek from the amazing, unbelievable, beautiful, gorgeous wedding fun.

I mean…have you EVER seen such a fun groom shot?

Todd Rosenberg – you nailed it.

You nailed every single photo – which you so hipster cool texted to producers from the scenic lakefront, direct from your camera.

April and Sakou – we miss you already!

Many thanks to everyone who partnered with us and Windy City Live for this divine dreamy wedding come true: BBJLinen, Tablescapes Party Rental, Art of Illumination, Peninsula Hotel, Todd Rosenberg, DJ Megan Taylor Fig Media,  Swirlz Cupcakes, Toni Patisserie, Frost Gelato, Glazed and Infused, Moet et Chandon, Belvedere Vodka, MaisonPR, Erica Strama and Two Birds/Nordstrom, Mario Triccoci, Nicholas Joseph/Custom Suits You…just to name a few…and of course – our team at A Perfect Event – who literally hasn’t stopped working for one single minute, for weeks on end.

Merci beaucoup, it was simply perfect.


Summer starts TODAY!

So so so excited.

I think I’ve typed this out ten times today.

Summer starts today – with #SummerSplash!

Imagine the world’s most gorgeous fashion mag, Glossed and Found, colliding with Chicago’s fave Sunday mag, SunTimes Splash, for a fashion collab this Sunday.




And tonight, we’ll toast to the happy couple, with champagne, whilst we “open” the summer patio at gorgeous RM Champagne Salon.

Life. is. so. good.

PS. When I asked Graham, editor, what he wanted to see in tonight’s launch party florals and decor, he swiftly replied: “desaturated electric pink and yellow” to coordinate to the stills of the shoot.

No problem.

Easy peasy.

Want to see a sneak peek?




Happy Mumsy Day!


Hope you are having the absolute day of your dreams…

Here’s a peek at my perfect Mother’s Day, my four generations from Gigi to Lilly, in front of the world’s perfect candy shop, La Mere de Famille, Paris.

The Mother of Family.

Happiest day to you Gigi, to my Mama, and to everyone mumsy, everywhere.

Thank you to Rosemary Fanti for making my dreams come true for Mother’s Day this year.
