Breakfast Should Be Pretty Too.

Absolutely Fabulous, London

On our recent trip to London we visited the top tourist attractions, stayed at the fabulous 45 Park Lane and dined at Wolfgang Puck’s only restaurant outside of the US, CUT.

Elegance Redefined: La Reserve

Facing the Grand Palais, La Reserve Paris is a journey through refined elegance. From the silk lined walls to the attentive butler service, La Reserve Paris is the vacation you’ve been waiting for. Check out my early attempts at narrating a video. It’s like Golf. It’s harder than it looks!
