High Tea and Tennis, what more could you ask for?
In honor of the US Open which starts today in Flushing, Queens, I've decided to revealed my continious admiration for a sport which is so dear to me, and is in fact, part of my everyday life. In tennis, love means nothing, but I absolutely love these fun art and fashion photographs!

There is something magical about Paris that draws me back to that city again and again. Of course, this is a feeling shared by millions, as it was evident during my recent trip in the mid-July season, when its hard to walk in the Parisian streets without facing a mob of tourists.
Even then, the city offers pockets of solitude- probably the most extravagant luxury in the French summer. During this trip I discovered not-to be missed spas, and the personalities that make Paris so inviting.
A rustic and elegant Napa Valey retreat by interior designer, Edward Lobrano
It takes only a moment to make an impression on someone, and if done correctly, that moment can last a lifetime. When I first met interior designer Edward Lobrano, I was working at The John Rosselli Showroom in the D&D Building, while attending Parsons The New School for Design. Ed, as he lackadaisically liked to be called, was one of the designers that left a favorable impression, in my early career in the design world. Over the years, I got to know him more through the works that he produced - mainly by visiting the venerable Kips Bay Designer Showhouse.

Brazilian football legend Pelé
The 2014 FIFA World Cup took soccer to an entirely new level. And during the last month, I pondered over whether THIS will be the moment for the United States to fall in love with soccer? Many of us hope so, including world-renowned luxury timepieces company Hublot. They love football.
As High End Weekly™ loves football.
In fact, Hublot is the official timekeeper of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. As a long standing favorite, I've been keeping a close eye on their latest activities, both here in the US, and Brazil. Today, and tomorrow, I will be celebrating with the Hublot family and friends, the biggest sporting final event in the world at a trendy, and upscale European restaurant in the Meatpacking district, called Bagatelle.
