Harvest Party at the Ranch

Greetings friends,

McEvoy Ranch in Marin County was the stunning setting this weekend for the annual McEvoy Harvest Party. Nestled deep in the Marin countryside, a mile or two from Petaluma, this is the “must-attend” event of the year. I went with my dear friends Lauren Williams and John Peake.

A Bite of the Big Apple

Last week, I had an opportunity to do some reconnaissance on the New York bar scene, which is often held up with London as the best in the world with San Francisco generally considered to be tightly nipping at their heels.


Beyond Birkin

The perk (and danger) of working near Union Square is the instant access to some of the city’s best shopping. On any given lunch break, you can usually find me meandering in and out of the stores scoping out the latest merchandise en route to a café for a bite to eat. The other day I popped into Hermès, where they’re hosting an impressive jewelry trunk show through Wednesday for Pierre Hardy’s new Fall 2007 Enchainements collection.

7 Questions with Robert Redford

Robert Redford has been a tour de force on the big screen for more than four decades.
From Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid to his latest film Lions for Lambs this actor, director and producer rarely disappoints.

Eco-Friendly Thanksgiving Hostess Gifts

I’ve been invited to spend Thanksgiving with my boyfriend’s family and I want to make a good impression. I’m pretty proud of my apple pie recipe, which I’ve adapted from various cookbooks and I now make using organic flour, butter and sugar. Last year, one of the vendors at the farmers’ market recommended I use a blend of apples I hadn’t tried before and the results were great. So, I’ll make a pie.

Greening of a Fave Fashion Line

When I get complimented on something I’m wearing that’s made of organic cotton or bamboo, I get a big kick out of boasting, “It’s organic!” But only a few years ago, it wasn’t so easy. When deciding to green my life, it was easiest to start with home products (replacing toxic products like Windex and Fantastic with natural ones by Seventh Generation and Method). Then I focused on finding suitable substitutes for beauty products (out with Chanel, in with Dr. Hauschka). My closet? Not so fast. I was pretty attached to my favorite lines and was reluctant to sacrifice my style.
