Lanvin y Gazpacho



Hello Everybody! Summer is officially here and I am beyond excited! I thrive for weekends at the beach, rosé wine, tapas afternoons and...Gazpacho! haha, this spanish tomato/cucumber cold drink/soup is summer in a cup! I wish I could spend this summer in Spain like I did a couple of years ago, but I have to say that Los Angeles ain't too bad either! 
So here you have it! My obsession Miss Lara Stone seductively drinking a glass of the God juice and flaunting an opulent Lanvin necklace from Spring/Summer 2010. I've never done jewelry, but I really like how this came out! I hope you enjoy it! Now if my post just gave you an insatiable thirst for gazpacho, here's a recipe taken from allrecipes.com so you can try it this weekend!

much love!

Glorious Summer! Your post was perfect.
Color-Crepe Myrtles, and Bougainvillea.
Heat on bare skin comes to mind.... drinking cool gazpacho in the shade.
