Serena's Summer Update

While Madame was getting ready for her oceanside getaway and not blogging, I was hard at work covering Haute Couture week in Paris.

I managed to grab a weekend flight into Nice with my new beau, Pierre. Isn't he darling!

We zipped around Cannes, San Tropez and Monaco. I love the Cote D'Azur. 

Sadly, I hadn't time to see Ms. Bourbon & Pearls in Corsica
