Los Angeles as a travel destination; AQ in San Francisco for an incredible dining experience (the flavorful menu changes often, but the attention to detail and impeccable service remains the same); Mariage Freres Rouge Vanille Tea, an intoxicating blend of delicious South African tea and Madagascar vanilla, has become a part of my bed time ritual (it is also available for purchase in the San Francisco Bay Area at Chantal Guillon); Land by Land’s luxurious Travel by Land Candle in Cassis No.111 (this heavenly scented candle is not only exquisitely packaged, but the size and protective tin make it a practical choice. The Bergamot No. 259 is amazing as well); Shu Uemura’s Silk Bloom Restorative Shampoo (this puts moisture back into lack luster locks and the smell is divine!); Aurélie Bidermann’s Copacabana Bracelet with Single Braided Thread (braided coral and metallic threads lend a layered look to a polished bangle); Etoile Isabel Marant’s Dita Embroidered Noil Silk Dress (this chic shift will take you from resort right into summer); K Jacques St Tropez’s Epicure multi-strap metallic leather sandal (these are a French girl’s resort footwear favorite); Melissa Odabash’s Paris Halterneck bikini (her ultra-flattering silhouettes and elegant cover-ups make for perfect vacation essentials); If you are looking for a sexy one piece instead, turn heads while lounging by the pool in Melissa Odabash’s Bermuda One Piece Swimsuit.
