What a wonderful time for champagne. We’re in the midst of a Fourth of July weekend, my fifth Fourth of July in NYC. It feels deep into summer already, with my sunburnt shoulders, heavy tan lines on my feet and the air con blasting every moment it can in my apartment. Really, it was just two weekends ago that I was in Maui celebrating the launch of Champagne Hale at the Montage Kapalya Bay with Veuve Clicquot and other really awesome people. The sunsets on the west side of Maui are probably some of the most dramatic and long lasting that I have ever been lucky enough witness. And they were appreciated even more thanks to a little evening champagne buzz. It was like floating on a tropical cloud 9. Time slows, and the glow effect spreads so that nothing else matters but that moment of watercolor canvas on the sky. By coincidence, I wore this metallic dotted dress, which only maximized the effect of what I saw before my eyes. I made plans to go to the tip of the rocks, as close to that sunset as I could, but in my sandals it would be near impossible. I will save that for another trip, but this little edge overlooking the bay will do for now. Maui is magic in its simplicity, openness and blue, blue sea, a reminder of life beyond where only our feet can take us. Thanks Veuve Clicquot for kickstarting my week in Hawaii. It was pretty unforgettable. A celebration of summer and nature and relaxation. I little champagne always adds that extra something special.
