The Best of St. Tropez..

April 19, 2014 No Comments 0

SUMMER IN ST.TROPEZ Like St. Barths, St. Tropez is an exquisite travel destination and one that appeals to a similar crowd. The main differences between the two are their accessibility (St. Tropez is part of mainland France, and thus easier to reach), humidity and unofficial dress code. While St. Barths is much beachier, St. Tropez is a dressier and more crowded destination. Both places are under French dominion, conduct themselves mostly in French and use the Euro. RESTAURANTS Possibly the most famous restaurant in St. Tropez (though it is actually in neighboring Ramatuelle) is Club 55. Located on a beautiful beach, the restaurant is half beach club/half seating. Club 55 was made famous by bombshell Brigitte Bardot, who extolled its virtues. When filming And God Created Woman, Bardot and her film crew discovered this gem. The name stems from the year this happened – 1955. The restaurant is still in the family, currently owned by Patrice de Colmont. Diners will love, the classic crudités dish for the whole table, my personal favorite thing on the menu. It consists of delicious, homegrown vegetables (so fresh you’ll want to discipline them) and a perfect accompanying dip. Whole tomatoes, carrots, radishes and other vegetables come on this enormous healthy platter. The restaurant also serves delicious fresh fish – as well as many other dishes – and has a wonderful dessert menu. There is plenty to enjoy at Club 55 besides the food; the people watching will attract even the most oblivious. Also in the town of Ramatuelle and about three miles’ drive from St. Tropez is Restaurant Tropicana. There are three Michelin-starred restaurants within four kilometers of St. Tropez. Villa Belrose and La Badiane each have one star. The third, located in The Résidence de la Pinède Hotel, is called La Vague d’Or....

The Best of St. Barths..

April 17, 2014 No Comments 0

An Amazing French Destination There are many excellent things about France, not the least of which are the wine, the exquisite palate, and first-class destinations: Meet St. Barthélemy (St. Barths). WINTER IN ST. BARTHS Wintering in St. Barths, French West Indies is the perfect antidote to life everywhere else. Between December and April (but especially around Christmas and New Year’s) the island welcomes media moguls and the uber-rich, who flock to St. Barths for its beautiful beaches and relaxed atmosphere. For those whose presence attracts attention and paparazzi, St. Barths is the perfect getaway. For the rest of us, St. Barths is just as attractive a destination. Superlative views, dining, shopping and indoor-outdoor living combine to create a luxury vacation in a tropical setting. Paradoxically, the island is both a haven where you can enjoy complete solitude, and a scene with vibrant nightlife and people watching. WHERE TO STAY Luxury meets elegance at St. Barths’ five-star hotels. Eden Rock Hotel, located on beautiful St. Jean Beach, was initially purchased by its present owners to be their personal home; however, the couple, David and Jane Matthews, instead created a blissful hotel. Seventeen years later, Eden Rock is part of The Relais & Châteaux group, which has been scouting excellence in restaurants and hotels for over 50 years. Le Sereno is another excellent option designed by top interior designer Christian Liaigre. With its warm tones and stunning setting on the Grand Cul de Sac, the hotel is boutique at its finest. Book one of the 37 suites or stay in one of three private villas, each with over 7500 square feet (697 square metres) of space. You’ll be counted among glitterati guests such as Valentino, Max Azria, Victoria Secret models, Uma Thurman, Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Guests will also enjoy the Hotel St. Barth...

PANDORA JEWELLERY..

April 17, 2014 No Comments 0

PANDORA Luxury Jewellery With A Personal Touch Pandora was launched in 1982 by Per and Winnie Enevoldsen. The couple’s small storefront in Denmark served as the beginning of what would soon become a jewellery phenomenon. Of the pieces created, none would become more popular than Pandora charms. By taking a traditional concept and transforming it into something special, Pandora Jewellery would soon become a household name. Part of the appeal of Pandora bracelets and charms is that they are customizable. The company currently offers hundreds of charms to select from. Murano glass, gemstones, sterling silver, and 14 karat gold are just some of the genuine materials used to produce each unique piece. While some charms are selected simply because they are beautiful, others are chosen to represent a special meaning or event, such as the birth of a child. Bracelets are specially made to support the charms. These are available in sterling silver, 14 karat gold, leather and textile materials. Each bracelet serves as the foundation upon which the charms will be added to complete the piece. This does not mean, however, that great care is not taken in the designing of each bracelet. Pandora Jewellery is not limited to only charms and bracelets. The collection includes rings, earrings, necklaces and pendants. Pandora has also begun to produce watches and currently offers a plethora of different watch styles. Any of these pieces can be paired with a Pandora charm bracelet or can be worn as stand alone pieces. Part of the beauty of Pandora pieces is that there are no set rules. Part of the appeal of Pandora is the personal connection that can easily be created between the wearer and the piece. However, it is important to not overlook the quality of each piece. The use of high quality materials is often...

ICON A5 ReinventIng Flying..

April 16, 2014 No Comments 0

The sport is back in flying ICON Aircraft’s mission is to bring the freedom, fun, and adventure of flying to all who have dreamed of flight. The FAA’s dramatic 2004 regulation changes that created the Light Sport Aircraft category have redefined the possibilities for aviation and allowed ICON to “reinvent flying” by focusing on the consumer experience. ICON’s intent is to democratize aviation the same way that great brands like Apple, BMW, Ducati, or Oakley democratize their products: by fusing outstanding engineering with world-class consumer product design. The end goal is to create products that not only deliver great functional benefit but also deeply inspire us on an emotional level. After years of development with some of the world’s best aerospace engineers and industrial designers, ICON Aircraft has released the first of its sport planes, the A5. The A5 delivers an exciting and safe flying experience in a bold design that communicates beauty, performance, and most importantly, fun. With over 1,000 delivery positions already assigned, the A5 has demonstrated unprecedented and broad market appeal. The A5 has also won numerous prestigious design awards. ICON’s unique vision, combining personal aviation and sophisticated design, reflects the passions of its founders. The idea for the company was conceived by Kirk Hawkins when he first learned about the impending FAA regulation change. Hawkins is a former U.S. Air Force F-16 pilot and a long-time motorsport enthusiast. After graduating from StanfordBusinessSchool, he founded ICON in 2006 in Silicon Valley with former classmate Steen Strand. Strand, a Harvard graduate with a master’s in Product Design from Stanford, is a serial entrepreneur focused on consumer product design. In 2007, a team of world-class aeronautical engineers and fabricators joined ICON. Much of that team came from Burt Rutan’s famed Scaled Composites, including VP of Engineering Matthew Gionta and...

April 16, 2014 No Comments 0

Angela Lucia McCartney was born in 1929 in Liverpool, UK. She grew up during World War II with early memories of living in air raid shelters. In 1956, Angie married Eddie Williams, and in 1960 they had their daughter Ruth McCartney. She was widowed in 1962, when Eddie passed away in a car crash. Together Ruth and Angie were warmly welcomed into the McCartney family in 1964 when she married Jim McCartney. They became step relatives to Sir Paul McCartney, and were flung right into the middle of The Beatles craze. In the early 80’s, the Mother-Daughter duo left the U.K. and traveled around the world, finding different jobs in the multimedia industry and later touring during Ruth’s musical career.

Da Emma Montreal’s finest Italian restaurant..

April 16, 2014 No Comments 0

Da Emma is a Montreal restaurant experience you just mustn’t miss Located in the former women’s prison at 777 rue de la Commune West in Old Montreal, it’s a meeting place for all Hollywood stars who visit our city—from Richard Gere to Halle Berry, Johnny Depp to Di Caprio, from Angelina Jolie to Steven Spielberg. The photos that welcome you on the walls will give you a bird’s-eye view of who’s been here. And all these celebrities, when they mention Montreal’s fine dining places, always talk about Da Emma. As Emma Risa is not only a Blue Ribbon Chef, but also one of the most remarkable women in Montreal. So the first thing the stars do, when they get to the restaurant, is come and hug this star of exquisite meals, right in her own kitchen! And they sure have good reason to do so, as her cooking—in the very greatest tradition of Roman gourmet cuisine—truly achieves an outstanding level of excellence. Just a taste of her agnolotti, medaglioni, ravioli, fettucini ai funghi porcini, her divine ossobuco or her delicious fish dishes is all you need for you, too, to become a regular of this restaurant that has transplanted the gastronomic cuisine of Little Italy to Old Montreal. Among the other pleasures of the palate that must be sampled are the seafood antipasti and the milk-fed pig roasted in garlic and rosemary. But please keep a bit of room for Emma’s home-made tiramisu. You won’t regret it! And in one word or one hundred, a meal at Da Emma is a memorable culinary experience. In fact, here you will savour delectable home-cooked dishes that will no doubt remind you of your own Momma’s cooking, in a magnificent Roman setting highlighted by stone pillars from the old prison and wooden beams. The restaurant’s flower-decorated terrace for summer dining will also delight you. So...

Napa Valley’s Auberge du Soleil..

April 16, 2014 No Comments 0

Luxury California Living at Napa Valley’s Auberge du Soleil California living is touted as relaxed and glamorous with an added amenity of five-star service. Born into this tradition in 1981, Auberge du Soleil quickly blossomed from a high-end restaurant into one of the most exclusive and luxurious NapaValley retreats. Situated in Rutherford, California, the inn offers romance through its spectacular views and private indoor-outdoor spaces, tranquility through its deluxe spa and culture through its Michelin-starred restaurant and sculpture garden. The I. Wolk Sculpture Gallery is a collection of over 100 works of art, spread out across the auberge’s 33-acres and curated by Ma(i)sonry NapaValley. This feature is the perfect fusion of natural and man-made aesthetics. A meander through this well-cultivated artistic garden is just one of the many romantic activities on offer. If the fresh, culinary endeavors of California are more of a draw, dine alfresco on the auberge’s panoramic terrace and enjoy highly recommended dishes including local lamb with olives and lobster salad. Managing Partner, George Goeggel, has been with Auberge du Soleil for 25 years. Besides wining and dining, he recommends private yoga lessons in the auberge’s Japanese Pavillion, a curated art tour or a cooking demo. When asked how the auberge exceeds the luxury quotient of other NapaValley accommodations, Goeggel extolls the staff’s “attention to detail and personalized access to the secrets of NapaValley”. The most luxurious accommodation onsite is the Maison Saint-Tropez, an eight-room villa that features outdoor showers and a private garden. The interior space of this Riviera-inspired suite was designed by Suzanne Tucker, named by Architectural Digest as one of the AD100 Top Designers of the World. This choice of designer is in keeping with the inn’s haute quality, ensured by its status as a member of the Relais & Châteaux and Auberge...
