A few weeks back, my friend Elise and I attended a GREAT event in support of www.IfOnly.com at Brooks Brothers on Union Square.

Always in the know 7x7Magazine has posted photos from the event in their current EAT + Drink issue on stands now! www.7x7.com * Of course, you will want to go beyond the photo of yours truly and check out the inside skinny on San Francisco.  Chloe Harris and her team have the fresh perspective on #Culture #Media #Food #Style #Drinks and more!


Currently, IfOnly has an array of bespoke "must have" and impossible to get items and experiences (ok nearly impossible; because you can go through www.IfOnly.com ), this little number will only set you back $100.00 and includes a constellation of chefs’ creations. 

What better  way to tell someone that you love them than to get a box of these?

IfOnly Constellation Chocolate Collection This once-in-a-lifetime collaboration is as unique as your loved one. 25 award winning chefs have come together to create a limited-edition collection of artisan chocolates to benefit Charity Water, while all profits from this collection will be donated to bring safe drinking water to communities around the world.

The Constellation Chocolate Collection benefits www.CharityWater.com

My advice? Add a Gift Certificate for Dinner at one of the restaurants for later use … and kisses; kisses are always good.
