15. I like fashion, food, and pictures.

I am in love with what we are; not what we should be.

Golden Opulence Sundae - $1000 at the Serendipity 3, NYC
"…made using three to five scoops of rich Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla and covered in 23k edible gold leaf. The chocolate syrup used is from melted Amedei Porcelana, one of the world’s most expensive chocolates; and covered with chunks of rare Chuao chocolate, which is from cocoa beans harvested by the Caribbean Sea on Venezuela’s coast.  The sundae is then adorned with ‘exotic candied fruits from Paris, gold covered almonds/dragets, chocolate truffles and marzipan cherries.’ Added to the dessert is a tiny glass bowl of Grand Passion Caviar, an exclusive dessert caviar, made of salt-free American Golden caviar, known for its sparkling golden color. It’s sweetened and infused with fresh passion fruit, orange and Armagnac.  Edible gold leaf is made from pure gold that is compressed or rolled into very thin sheets that are only a few micrometers thick and contain no other metals or impurities.  It is finally topped off with a gilded sugar flower and sprinkled with small flakes of more edible gold.”

Richard Shapiro’s Garden 
Holmby Hills, Los Angeles, California
"This pool house was inspired by a Palladian villa and is complete with a handsome antique stone fireplace. The surreal boxwood, inspired by the abstract hilltop gardens surrounding the turreted Château de Marqueyssac in southwest France.”
