Read the low-down on the very jazzy January party that our very own Barbara Brudenell-Bruce hosted at Boisdale.

Our event last week saw Sunday Times It’s a Date columnists Cosmo Landesman & Dolly Alderton discuss all things dating in this hilarious event aptly named: Love Surgery. The audience are guests of upmarket events club trio for single professionals – Rendezvous, Vida8 and Vida Consultancy. Here is a snippet of the much talked about […]

An interview with London’s most sociable garden designer

09 May

As with tasteful interior design, Richard knows how to landscape design something that is modern and contemporary for the exterior of a home and yet he has a depth of knowledge and sensitivity to appreciate horticultural heritage. His projects include many London gardens, a grade 1 listed house in Norfolk, a 15-acre garden for a […]

Cocktails in the City

09 May

May 4, 2016 – They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and I’m not going to argue with that, but if there’s a sure way to my heart, littered with lovelorn suitors though it is, it might just start with a Martini. Well that’s how I fell for miracle-working mixologist […]

Our very own hostess with the mostess, Barbara Brudenell-Bruce is not only Managing Director of Vida8 but also has another events company, Rendezvous.

The Power of Networking

12 Apr

Do you know people who you really consider to be great networkers? They seem to know everyone, and if they don’t they know how to get to someone. Are they just touched with gold, or a bit of a mover and shaker? You could say that, but actually good networkers are people who know the […]

Vida8’s Art Lovers’ Party

07 Apr

Sounds a bit Mad Hatter perhaps, but good, non? I have to admit I pinched it from one of those wonderful Grimaldi Forum (Monaco) summer exhibitions. The poster was of Jeff Koon’s giant red Hanging Heart. Vida8’s very own heart throb Cosmo Barran, proved such a pleasure to work with. Cosmo is the epitome of […]

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 […]

Vida8’s Blind Spot Party

03 Dec

November 10, 2015 – I seized the bronze-hand door handle of the Blind Spot Bar; it was firm, smooth, shiny and strong with just the right amount of resistance. What can I tell you − everything felt great at the Blind Spot Bar last night, for it was there that we threw Vida8’s biannual Mixa party, […]

Review: Vida8 Alain Llorca Gourmet Lunch

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 […]

COTE D’AZUR BEACH-SIDE LUNCH, ANJUNA

10 Jun

Anjuna, Eze-Sur-Mer, France Saturday June 6, 2015 – Basking in the glorious sunshine as I greeted our Vida8 group outside the brand new and glamorous Monaco Yacht Club, an international visitor commented – “Barbara I can see how you’ve got the perfect work/lifestyle balance living between Monaco and London – what’s not to love about this […]
