Drink: Allllll the Champagne. (Responsibly)
Darlings, there is truly nothing more extraordinary than those millions of bubbles glistening away at you from a glass. Happiness, is a glass of champagne. I can never drink it when I’m sad, that is a time reserved for the warmth of a deep red wine. Needless to say, I am constantly drinking champagne!
Perrier Jouët, Bollinger, Piper Heidsieck, Billecart Salmon, Veuve Clicquot, Pol Roger… Oh! My thirst is not only quenched, but my imagination is inspired too! From those who have loved champagne before me such as Marilyn Monroe to Alphonse Mucha, See our shoots inspired by French Champagne from this month on the blog by clicking the photos here:
Read: The Widow Clicquot
This book is without a doubt on my next-read list, I know it will be a juicy one. Madame Clicquot is the original #bossbitch – and I mean that in the most positive applauding context. She inherited the business of her deceased husband Clicquot and added Veuve for ‘widow‘. To the now Veuve Clicquot, Madame C brought to it her imagination, her entrepreneurship and exquisite dedication to a quality product. As an emblem for all the women out there doing incredible things, she is a true inspiration. A must read!
“The world is in perpetual motion, and we must invent the things of tomorrow… Act with audacity.” Madame Clicquot
