{Provence Market Tips}

Undoubtedly the food market in St.Remy-de-Provence is one of the best markets in the South of France. I say this because it’s both quaint and grandiose, providing the small French market of which you always dreamed..... Undoubtedly the food market in St.Remy-de-Provence is one of the best markets in the South of France. I say this because it’s both quaint and grandiose, providing the small French market of which you always dreamed. Marvelously organized – tables are often filled with alternating fruits and vegetables creating a stunning aesthetic- and endlessly abundant, this market is undeniably charming. Ensconced within the walls of the centre-ville, you’re bound to find a stunning array of saucisse that’s been expertly crafted by men whose families have created these delights for generations. It’s a joy to fill your straw market basket with bright purple fresh garlic, asparagus so knobby and beautiful that it clearly came from someone’s little farm, t

{Behind the Scenes} 06.10-17.12

  While answering emails and prepping for meetings this week, I took some time to reflect on last week's wonderful endeavors -- skillful styling, fresh summer fruit, cocktails made special for me by dear (and talented) friends, gifts from travels. All of this followed by a weekend spent poolside with friends, friends who reminded me just how blessed I am to have such loving people in my life.  I hope your Tuesday is a terrific one! xo, Jolie {To follow me on instagram: follow @JolieGoodnight}  

{Burlesque Style Series} : Ruby Joule

Recently awarded "Most Classic," Ruby Joule is indeed just that -- most classic! Her style aesthetic is delightfully timeless yet done so in an old world way. She's elegant -- but never stuffy, waspy -- but not preppy, mysterious -- but always kind. She's one of my favorite women with whom I love to share a car ride { or a cocktail hour for that matter} because I'm bound to have sharp conversations about; elite families from another era, socialites, etiquette, art & grammar. Miss Joule is a (pardon the expression) gem to go to the beach with because she is sure to remain glamorous from head-to-toe, she makes no glamorous exceptions for the sea or elsewhere! ---She's the gem you'd love to polish, but who needs no further polishing, Ruby Joule!     {image: kaylin idora photography } PREVIOUS BURLESQUE STYLE SERIES:  1.

{Back in the Swing of things}

Simply trying to get my affairs in order after my lengthy (but delicious) trip to France. After all, before I departed I: 1. moved to a lovely new home - but still have many boxes left to unpack 2. competed at Viva Las Vegas - and won second runner up! 2. traveled to San Francisco - with only two days to pack for France! It's time to get back in the swing of things!  But first, a few nights spent with friends, in the balmy night air...
