Cheers to the upcoming summer! I am thrilled to reintroduce my readers to one of my favorite child-friendly beverage companies, Tickle Water. My favorite characteristic of Tickle Water is that it is perfect for small hands, meaning that it will be ideal for my daughter to bring with her to school and activities. Her favorite is the watermelon and green apple. She calls the Watermelon flavored water “owl bubbles.” It is so cute when she laughs after each sip. We enjoy Tickle Water together during the afternoon while at our pool. The size is also compact and lightweight for bringing to the beach. The tickly taste is so refreshing!
The Trunks of Love Kick-Off Reception took place this past Saturday, June 10th from 6-8pm at The Baker House 1650 in East Hampton. The third annual event to benefit Veterinarians International was hosted by Baker House 1650 proprietor Antonella Bertello. This beautiful and well-attended event offered guests the opportunity to not only learn more about the mission of Veterinarians International, but to offer supporters the opportunity to meet and greet with Veterinarians International’s veterinarians, nurses and ambassadors.
Veterinarians International is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to enhance the health of humans, animals, and the environment through the use of sound veterinary care and expertise.
Last Saturday, I visited Gemelli Gelato for the first time in Hampton Bays, located just off of Montauk Highway. There are many unique characteristics about this gelato shop that everyone will love: the array of unique, artisanal gelato flavors, nitro brew coffee, specialty waffle cones, and plenty of outdoor space for families to run about and play. Very few businesses offer such an incredible amount of ‘play’ space, while also serving some of the best gelato in the Hamptons!
I first discovered Nature’s Bakery at the 2nd Annual Self UpnOut event in downtown Manhattan. After exercising for almost four hours, I took my first bite into their Double Chocolate Brownie and was instantly hooked. Rarely has there been a bite of chocolate that was so tempting and satisfying for my “a little something sweet” craving post-workout. After that first taste of such a dense, chocolately brownie bar, I was on the lookout for Nature’s Bakery at my local Stop n’ Shop. I was pleased to see that their products were on sale on a fairly regular basis, so I purchased a couple dozen brownie bars.
It was not long after that I had the opportunity to try all of their Fig and Brownie bars. There is certainly a bar for everyone: four types of gluten-free Fig Bars, four brownie flavors, and eight Fig Bars, in addition to recently launched bars.
It is my pleasure, on behalf of St. Jude, to my invite all of my readers to the 3rd Annual St. Jude Hope in the Hamptons, celebrating the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The event will be held on Deerfield Road in Watermill on Saturday, July 15th from 6-10:30pm. Guests will enjoy cocktails, farm fresh fare, live and silent auctions, and live entertainment. Wear country chic attire with comfortable shoes for plenty of dancing.
