Happy Sunday! Here’s this week’s Sunday Seven in wine, food, lifestyle, design and travel.
Tips from some famous travelers on how to pack smarter. I use a main tactic here myself – I pack only by outfit so I don’t have anything extra but have exactly what I need. I also take only a few pairs of shoes since those are the thing that take up the most space. Sad but true!
How cool is the Aspen Art Museum, pictured above? This link has top picks for an arts-and-culture-centric Aspen visit, perfectly crafted for the design lover. I love Aspen and would be into taking an off-season trip. This year, there is even more going on than usual with the celebration of the Bauhaus 100: Aspen.
I am obsessed with Mandy Moore’s home in the Pasadena Hills. She restored the home in a mix of styles – vintage and contemporary, high and low, feminine and masculine. There are nods to the original ’50s design, but there is also a fresh, organic, and modern vibe. Design fans, you must check it out!
A list of 40 shows, docuseries and TV movies to stockpile for fall. I already started watching Unbelievable – which, fair warning, is intense but so good. And I’m a fan of all things Gwyneth Paltrow so am looking forward to The Politician!
I’m also including a list of books to add to your reading list! I am on a plane so much that I use the time to catch up on reading. There are lots of great suggestions on this list for all you bookworms.
In other news, it’s finally happened: you can actually buy a house on Amazon. If you’re into the idea of a tiny home, the Cliff home by Q-haus is indeed available on Amazon from $105,000. The unique modular house is 774-square-feet and and customizable with a two- or three-bedroom and one- or two-bathroom layout.
This is my dream!! A new London restaurant offers 25 different varieties of cheese under constant conveyor belt rotation. Each is British and partnered with its own condiment, from classic fig flavors to more unusual pairings like truffled potatoes or lemon meringue. You grab what you want, and of course, you can also order a glass of wine to drink with your cheese!
Hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing rest of your weekend!
