While in Venice, Italy, take a break to visit the original Harry's Bar. The staff is warmly hospitable and will make your visit seem very personal. They'll share the history of their delicious invention, the Bellini cocktail. You'll hear and see photos of the many classic movie stars who've enjoyed the bar since 1931.

These very different, elegant kitchens were featured in an article from Complete France/Home Garden Vibes. I'm featuring them because some are designed with European influence like the one above and the others are just as fabulous. This is Kanye and Kim West's French style kitchen near Calabasas. Take a few minutes to see all 20 kitchens here...

I should really call this easy peasy "day-before market day" pizza or "kitchen sink" pizza. When you're down to the last day before grocery shopping, dig out some goodies from your fridge. I always have some kind of cheeses, tomatoes, onions or veggies and deli meats. I keep the pizza dough in the freezer for these days when I need it...

Every year I post this photo of the New York towers in memory of the September 11, 2001 tragedy. My son, Zach and I, were present and took this photo one month prior to that fateful day. I choose to show it differently each year. Remembering is the best way not to lose site of what America has to offer everyone--freedom and liberty.

I was a big fan of Grace Kelly before she married into French Monaco royalty. But now her grandson (Princess Caroline's son) has recently married. Click to see their fairytale wedding and subsequent honeymoon castle at Lake Maggiore in Italy.

Country Living Clothesline
Summer Euro Whites and Cool White Shirts
I love white linen because it reminds me of warm days when my mom would hang clean linens on the clothesline to dry. My sister and I would run through them and feel the cool fabric. We'd play hide and go seek. What fun!Victoria Mag photo
