Beautiful & Spirited- would make a wonderful gift but you better buy another for yourself as well!
The recipes are fantastic, and the pictures are gorgeous.
It is inspiring and uplifting to ENJOY your life, while you lavish yourself with everything you deserve. If you are on a tight budget, there are plenty of ideas given where you can improvise and still create beautiful memories. If you don't belong to a country club, you can still play tennis or go for a walk in a beautiful park. As Lilly points out, it is much more important that you enjoy yourself, and BE yourself! Highly Recommended!

The photography in Essentially Lilly is gorgeous. Ocean and garden scenes display the young, beautiful and obviously wealthy (not to mention white - there is nary a person of color in Lilly's world, apparently) frolicking per Lilly's mantra of always enjoying oneself. Lilly's fans will enjoy seeing how the sometimes outrageous prints her clothing line produced stand up through time - vintage sales photos printed next to newer images look just as fresh as they day they were taken.
As for the recipes, well, they're not impressive or complex (WASPs aren't the most enthusiastic eaters/cooks - witness Alexandra Wentworth's "The WASP Cookbook") but they work and that's what's important. The ingredients are primarily fresh fruits, veggies and seafoods which are altered as minimally as possible. In short, they're perfect for the type of Palm Beach life that Lilly loves and encourages - a type of endless summer where it never rains, no one is ever unhappy and you never drop your sandwich into the sand.Read more ›
