Frances Austen & Alissa Bell Collection Launch at The Riddler

· ·

For me, the sound of a champagne cork popping is the happiest sound in the world.  My grandfather (who Liam is named after) always had a bottle chilled in case there was something to celebrate like an impromptu visit from his grandchildren, an engagement or any of life's special moments big or small so I always think of him when I hear the sound. 

It felt so appropriate to pop some bubbles with dear friends and celebrate the Collection II launch and our dear friend Alissa Bell's Essentialist Collection a few weeks ago.  It was perfect night of celebrating with old friends and new, and taking a moment to breathe and feel the accomplishment of putting out something new and beautiful into the world.  

We had our celebration at The Riddler  in San Francisco, and crowded it with wonderful women from all stages of our lives.  What could be more appropriate than celebrating two female entrepreneurs and their business than at a woman owned and run champagne bar?  It was a perfect pairing.  

A special thank you to Emily Martin for party planning.
