"Talking With My Mouth Full" Book Party


This past Tuesday was rather exciting as my amazing boss, Gail Simmons, published her very first book, “Talking With My Mouth Full”! Only a year ago, she was in the very beginning stages of writing; since then there were many more hours of writing, tons of editing, recipe testing, shooting the book cover, selecting the jacket design, and planning a book tour. It was an incredible process to observe and I feel fortunate to have played a very small part in it all.


Tuesday night, FOOD & WINE and Essie threw Gail a book party at Beauty & Essex. It was the party every girl dreams of hosting just once in her life and nothing short of fabulous. The cozy space at Beauty & Essex featured accents inspired by the Essie Spring 2012 colors. Even the cocktails were mixed, muddled, shaken, and stirred with these colors in mind!


The evening would not have been complete without a fantastic guest list, including Andy Cohen, Padma Laksmi, Dannielle Kyrillos, Nigel Parry, Melanie Dunea, Dorie Greenspan, Marcy Blum, Mindy Fox, and Amy Atlas (I was SO excited to meet her!), among many others. We all spent the evening toasting to Gail’s success – present and future – and she could not have been a more gracious hostess. Be sure to order your copy of Gail’s book from Amazon or Barnes & Noble!
