The Gucci Diaries  

Welcome to The Gucci Diaries.  Please meet a favorite Gucci of mine, the Gucci Lady Webb Bag.  This small but roomy little minx can be a cross body or shoulder bag by adjusting the classic Gucci colors red and green strap.  Perfect for running about town hands-free.  After visiting this bag for a few weeks I took my friends for a look and to confirm I was insane for even thinking about purchasing it.   My friend, Libby confidently told the sales person we would be back right after brunch because I was definitely going to buy her today.  She was...

Dining in South Beach, Miami

For my big birthday weekend I had the idea to revisit a place I used to go to in my younger years, South Beach, Miami.  I knew I didn’t want to replicate the past, that would be silly, but rather to create some new memories.  I have to say I initially thought I had made the biggest mistake ever!  10 women in their 40s and one turning 50 (me) during a Hip Hop weekend in South Beach as opposed to my first idea of a relaxing spa weekend certainly made for memories none of us will ever forget.  Our...

The GucciDairies 

You all know my penchant for shoes.  I love shoes, they make me happy, never make me feel sad and most of all they do not judge when I have put on a few pounds.  Sadly, of late I have been neglecting sharing this affinity I have with shoes with you.  It is not because I haven’t purchased any new pairs (I have 🙂 ), it really is just because I get so darn busy with my day job and then my inspiration waivers and I just don’t write for a few weeks.  I am hoping the summer months...

A wine lovers dream: A day at Opus One Winery with winemaker Michael Silacci

Ever since I had my first sip of Opus One wine back in 2011 I have had a little bit of an obsession with this emperor of wines. A few months after my review where I did embarrassingly compare the Opus One 2007 to Brad Pitt, Opus One’s winemaker, Michael Silacci thanked me with an invite to a night to remember dinner at L’Espalier where I was joined by my friend, Rob aka BosGuy. The side-by-side tasting of the 2007 and 2008 I shared with Michael at one of Boston’s finest restaurants are the kind of memories I keep with me and think about when I’m having...

Porter Family Vineyards and their Sandpiper Rosé 2016

My friend Erika wanted to celebrate her special birthday in Wine Country so asked me to organize a trip for us to Napa Valley.   Two amazing asks in one request!   Firstly, I get to join my friend in one of my favorite places in the world and two, I get to plan!  I do love to plan things.  We stayed at my favorite hotel, the stunning Hotel Yountville right the heart of the little town of Yountville itself.  I put together five days of wine tasting, exquisite dining and a relaxing spa day.  One of the tours I asked...
