For Morning Coffee:

The best part of Paris is trying all the cafés scattered along the streets. Wish I could get my coffee from there every morning.

For a Decadent Dinner: 

When in Paris, I make a point to take friends to Apicius. The food is always delicious.

For a Low-Key Glass of Wine: 

I love going to HMF at the Breakers hotel in Palm Beach, Florida. It's a chic lounge that serves great wine for a quintessential Palm Beach night.

To Indulge Her Sweet Tooth: 

I try to be healthy! But I will say that Dylan's Candy Bar in NYC makes it hard.

To Buy Beauty Essentials (and Discover New Ones!): 

Beauty shops on the Champs-Élysées in Paris.

For a Night of Let-Loose Dancing: 

I love to dance, and I love going out in New York City. 1 Oak is the perfect place for that!

Tennis courts anywhere, of course.
