Newport Bound

Photos via Travel for Design by Sara Gilbane. See below for descriptions.

After a hectic few weeks, I can’t wait to get down to Newport this weekend. We’ll be celebrating a friend’s upcoming wedding with a girls weekend of Cliff Walking, sailing and festivities at the Clarke Cooke House. I will also be poking around for gifts that give, including stopping in at the sparkly new Bellevue Beauty Walk for some conflict free bling. Hope your weekends lead you to equally summery adventures!

From Sara, on her pics…
1. Grace Kelly and Louis Armstrong on the set of High Society filmed in Newport. A must see!
2. Dinner and dancing at The Sky Bar on the top floor of The Clarke Cooke House. After 11:30 pm the tables are cleared and the DJ starts spinning, finish up the evening with a rendition of “God Bless America”. The heirloom tomato salad and lobster ravioli are my favorite dishes. Make sure to save room for their famous “Snowball in Hell” for dessert (a chocolate brownie, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, and shaved coconut lit on fire).
