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!
Thinking about what healthy snacks to bring to the beach? Whether you have or have not yet taking a class at one of Tracy Anderson’s Hamptons studios, you must try her delicious smoothies and USDA certified organic protein bars that will be available at all Golden Pear Cafe locations.
Order one of Tracy Anderson’s freshly made smoothies (mixed with her patented protein powder) as well as her latest all-organic Ultimate CLEAR Bars. Tracy Anderson’s smoothie menu will provide options for pre/post-workout, detoxification, and weight loss. Each Smoothie is gluten-free, fructose-free, non-GMO, and made with organic ingredients.
Summers in the Hamptons have always been known for the extravagant galas and soirees that seem to pour into each weekend. It would not be a fulfilling season out east without attending at least one of the well-known gatherings. Plus, who could miss out on an opportunity to go shopping and get glammed up for that spectacular evening? There is a feeling of wonder and excitement in the air knowing that summer is just around the corner. With the arrival of summer, my attention turns to my wardrobe. I love deciding weeks in advance what I will be wearing to which event, and when attending multiple events in one day, it is essential that my outfits are ready to grab, change into, and continue about my day. As I begin to organize the season’s wardrobe, I instantly become reminded of all my favorite events, some of which are child-friendly, a huge plus for my family. From fashion and feasts to breakfasts with famous chefs, below are my top Hamptons summer events I am looking forward to.
This year was filled with many great sips throughout both forks. I visited several new vineyards this year and had the opportunity to try many new, luscious beverages. Many of these bottled beauties are now enjoyed by me and my family on a regular basis. From a refreshing, floral lemonade to a sparkling ‘royal’ champagne, below I feature my top ten favorite things I drank in 2016.
We visited the restaurant at Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton on Sunday for Long Island Restaurant Week. Long Island Restaurant Week spans for eight days, Sunday to Sunday, and offers a $27.95 prix fixe menu at dozens of restaurants across Long Island. It gives customers an affordable opportunity to try the cuisine at several restaurants of their choosing. During this week, I try to visit restaurants I have never dined at before in the hopes of finding a new place to come dine at on a regular basis. We were very pleased with our experience at Topping Rose House. We have dined here for brunch and have attended events in the past, but this was our first visit for dinner. The charm and elegance of the restaurant and the hotel assimilate well within the Hamptons. The white, stately mansion with a classic, beach scene decor with a splash of unobstrusive modernism. Our daughter loved the cinemagraph of the snow owl as we entered the hotel lobby.
