Sip & Savor

Divine Intervention

Take out a fresh piece of paper and write down a three-word inspiring agenda: Eat, Pray, Love. We did, and this is what we found to fulfill our prophecy.

Diane Lane did it in Positano. Julia's doing it in Italy, India and Bali. If it's a passport and some frequent flier miles that's holding you back from finding your Eat, Pray, Love destiny, consider your problem solved. We've gathered ideas for you to experience all the pleasures those well-traveled women did right here in your own city. Your postcard-perfect moment awaits.

EAT
Forget counting carbs and calories for a night and just allow yourself the joy of a delicious plate of food and an incredible apéritif at newly opened 34th Street Cafe target="_blank">La Sombra) will wow you with creative South American themed plates like quail skewers and banana leaf roasted pulled pork, and woo you with a menu of Peruvian cocktails and an exotic wine list.

PRAY
Invest in some solitude and take your practice to new heights by reserving your spot for the fall Texas Yoga Retreat scheduled to take place October 22nd - 24th. Held at Barsana Dham, an actual ashram in the Hill Country, the weekend retreat features yoga sessions for all levels, vegetarian food, discussions, massage, hiking and some much needed peace and quiet in a serene setting. Book your spot for only $395. (Pricing bumps up to $445 after September 22nd.)

LOVE
There's nothing like a love affair to make you feel sexy and alive. So go out there and have one...with yourself. Schedule an intimate photography session with Vivian's Muse. Local siren, Julia Vie, will set up shop in the most seductive spot, your boudoir, to take a series of shots to capture your most beautiful self. A purrfect gift for the one you love, or to keep for your eyes only.
