Diary of a Foodinista

One of the most fun wedding gifts we received a couple years ago was an entertaining diary from our friend Vincent. It’s great to look back and see who sat where, and what we ate and drank. Browsing online at Smythson (which is, incidentally, where we had our wedding invitations engraved!), I stumbled upon this über-chic BRUNCHES, LUNCHES, SUPPERS, DINNERS BOOK on sale for $145 (admittedly, not exactly a bargain even at 50% off, but such a pretty keepsake).  It’s red pigskin with gilt-edged pages, and has space for seating plans, menus and comments—like what you wore! 

Caviar Dreams

I can’t decide what I’m more excited about—the rich, salty Siberian sturgeon caviar we had for dinner the other night, or this limited-edition nail varnish from Laura Mercier that I unwrapped in my Christmas stocking. It’s called “Caviar Dreams” and indeed it’s the same gorgeous dark gray as the caviar, but with a hint of dark plum and teal (like an oil slick—in a good way) and metallic shimmer. It’s a must for a New Year’s Eve manicure!
