Matchmaking in Monaco

11 Sep

Squeezed into just 200 hectares it might be the world’s second-smallest country (the Vatican is smaller), but what it lacks in size it makes up for in attitude. Glitzy, glam and oozing decadence, Monaco is truly enticing. Vida has been matchmaking here for some time. We have an exceptionally glamourous matchmaker based here who boasts […]

Vida8’s Art Lovers’ Party

Confidence & flavours; Rendezvous January Gallery Party

02 Feb

It’s a particularly warm late January afternoon as I pop in to see gorgeous Bethany at Goat Chelsea to collect the canapés they’ve made for our Gallery Party at the Cadogan tonight. I carve up Bethany’s gym plans by suggesting a quick ‘glass of confidence’ (“Hey why not? It’ll make me train harder”. Good girl!) […]

Rendezvous’ wine tasting; the red, the white and the fizz

03 Dec

Rather like some of our Rendezvous members, Brunswick House is classically elegant and understated on the outside, while on the inside it is a very different beast indeed – wild, original, carefree and…ok, the analogy ends here. The place looks deranged. Arriving here on a cool November evening, we glide through the classical portico and step into […]

05 Oct

October 3, 2015 – As I hurtled around Monte Carlo’s Fairmont Corner like a Formula 1 Ferrari (but on heels not wheels) to meet our Vida8 guests at the Fairmont Hotel for our transfers to St Paul de Vence, the backdrop of glorious Mediterranean blue sea made me marvel at how, yet again, we had […]
