La Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild

Well, it isn’t really a palace, a tad too small by French standards but in the eyes of a three year old it was A PALACE.  A  REAL  PINK  PALACE. The owner Béatrice de Rothschild daughter of famed banker and major art collector Baron Alphonse de Rothschild was of not much interest to Sugar. “Was she a princess?”, ummm no. “Was she a Queen?”, ahhhh no. “Does she know Marie Antoinette?” Not exactly. “Does she like pink?”, YES!!!!!

So with Sugar’s blessing we set out to not only find the most beautiful Villa on the Côte d’Azur but to start a love affair with a town called  Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. Which in turn had me dreaming of an actual love affair with my husband sans children in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

As had become the norm during our travels entering anywhere with museum like standards was usually met with a weary eye and a cool reception. I think it was when Sam and I found ourselves staring at Boo (a stuffed dog that was getting a free trip through Europe) resting nicely on Béatrice de Rothschild’s pillow of her guarded and roped off bed with the faint aroma of my sons nappy swimming around us that I realised we were always best in a very big garden.

Morgan and Lincoln Pilcher

It was a no brainer that Morgan and Lincoln Pilcher were number one on my hit list when our family pitched the proverbial tent in NYC recently. Their story as a family has always fascinated me. Son and daughter to former Vogue Editor Nancy Pilcher (who I pretty much have a girl crush on) both Morgan and Lincoln have rightfully so, made their own mark in the big apple. Considering I was struggling to push a double stroller around for a few weeks I consider this is no mean feat… KEEP TALKING

CLINT EASTWOOD

HIS HANDS are soft. And he might be the only guy alive who makes you envy crow’s-feet. His eyes are a beautiful light blue.

I meet him outside a soundstage at Warner Bros., and he suggests we walk to his office, a little Mission-style bungalow in a shady corner of the lot. He walks with a steady, smooth gait—he’s six feet three—and when he talks it’s in a quiet, soothing voice. Not that crusty Dirty Harry thing.

Outside one soundstage, a taping of Ellen has just ended, and a gaggle of women spills out. As we approach, one or two of them realize, “Hey, isn’t that—? It is!” But no words come from their agape mouths. Clint smiles and nods at them, tugs at the brim of a hat that doesn’t exist, and says, “Ladies….” Then he keeps walking…. KEEP TALKING
