Cocktails & Vintage Rock Tales

Pin It

I drink Champagne when i'm happy and when i'm sad.  Sometimes i drink when alone, when I have company  I consider it obligatory.  I trifle if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it -unless I'm thirsty!  as qouted by Madame Lily Bollinger

Vintage Jewels. Travel. Cocktails - a perfect mixture!

So which piece would you wear, where would you be and which cocktail would fit perfectly with your vintage piece.

Enjoy the story of the travels and flavours from a selection from Suzie Wheat Vintage...... with thanks to the wonderful mr and mrs smith for inspiration and suggestion of amazing destinations and hotels taken from their wonderful site http://www.mrandmrssmith.com/
