Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

My sister has been single for three years now. She lives in Valhalla, New York.

Can you reccomend a more upscale service? I would be interested in finding someone to sit down and really work with her. I'm willing to pay for the entire expense, I just cannot continue to be so entwined in her (unsuccesful) dating attempts. Thanks. Lisa

A New Look for Fall?




I'm searching for a new look for Fall. I just moved from Boston to NYC. I want a bolder, feminine look but I don't have time to search through fashion magazines or browse stores. Any quick ideas? I'm 23, this is my first professional job and although my profession does not require conservative dress, I am not in anyway flamboyant. - Ally

Adrienne Vittadini has unveiled their Fall 05 line, "Timeless Beauty".
Fall ’05 - a celebration of feminine allure and each look an expression of luxury and elegance perfectly put together with Adrienne Vittadini signature style.

Tipping?


I get together with my girfriends once a month for dinner or lunch. We always pick one of the trendiest places-so it's usually a packed restauraunt. My friends are great, well educated, compassionate and intelligent. When it comes to tipping, we usually end up tipping about 20 percent of the bill. This all sounds fine, right? Well most of the time we have so much to talk about that we are there for over two hours. What is my obligation to the waiter? I think I might be alone on this one, but I feel guilty when we end up staying that long.

If you hold a table for two servings, make sure that you tip double. In other words, if you spend enough time at a table that a waiter could have typically gotten two parties seated and served, then compensate him for his time by tipping him twice. If you can do so quietly, ease his mind by telling him this about halfway through.

Luxurious Sheets?

I am looking for a set of unmistakably luxurious sheets for our guest room. Do you have a fast, one stop answer? -Karen

Pratesi. A queen set of their "basic" sheets (482-thread-count) with embroidery run around $1,400. In NYC at 829 Madison Avenue at 69th Street. 212-288-2315.

Best Private Jet?




As far as private jets go, what is top of the line?

Gulfstream GV-SP. The GV-SP's increased cabin volume affords a fourth living area, seats 16 passengers comfortably, and berths up to eight. The 6,750 nm range at Mach 0.80 means that the GV-SP can fly nonstop from New York to Tokyo [with eight passengers] guaranteed. The cargo space and cabin space have both been upgraded 25% from the GSV providing an interior with unparalleled luxury and comfort.

The typically equipped and completed GV-SP is being priced at about $45 million.

"Top of the line", in transportation and electronics will always be changing as innovations are always on the way. In early 2006, look for Bombardier Global Express XRS is scheduled to enter service and replace the Global Express.

Unique Destinations?





My wife has been handling our travel arrangements throughout our entire marriage. We are about to celebrate our 15th anniversary. I would like to make plans to take our entire family away together. 37 people all together. I can arrange to charter two flights to the destination but I have been able to find a destination that grabs me. Past a certain point, everything seems like the same set up. Any ideas for a unique vacation. I want this to be top of the line and a huge surprise for my wife. I'm surfing the web right now looking for ideas and I got to this site- so I thought I'd ask. -Gene

Have you considered a private Island? (Pictured above top to bottom: Belize, Musha Cay & Ibiza ) I have excellent connections to owners of the most amazing private Islands from the Caribbean to Greece.

Accomodating the In-Laws?

My in-laws (my wife's sister & her husband) will be coming to stay for a week in June. I was hoping to sell them on the idea of staying in the city to "take it all in" for some portion of that time. A week seems like a long time. Is there a way to propose this in a way that is polite and doesn't shout "not here"? I'd like to make the arrangements in advance and I'd like it to be a really nice thing-the cost won't be a problem. Rob Harrison, NY

I think it can be done. It involves your ability to be a great host while they are in your home and maintaining some connection to the activities that they partake in during their NYC stay. The St. Regis is a top notch hotel and it's located right in the heart of midtown. The hotel's overly attentive services will leave your in-laws feeling pampered and doted on-rather than cast off. Plan to meet your in-laws in the city at least one of the nights for a specific and planned dinner. If cost is not an object, obtain tickets to a broadway show, sporting event or anything else that cateres to their specific interest. Ideally your in-laws will feel that there is a legitimate purpose and need for them to stay in the hotel (to partake in all of the great things you have set up for them!) Carabelle Concierge can make all of the arrangements for you, please email me at carabelleltd@aol.com.

Ginger Fragrant Water?

I was in an elevator with a couple and one of them was wearing the most amazing scent. When I complimented the fragrance, they both replied in unison with a response that included Ginger Fragrant Water. Unsure who was wearing it, I smiled politely and said "oh". Any chance you can help me locate the product based on what I heard?

Quite honestly, that could be anything! Perhaps they both answered - because they both wore the scent? Roger & Gallet make a fragrance for men and woman made from ginger blossom and spice with a wood undertone. Their scent is called Roger & Gallet Ginger Eau Parfumante. The product is available through www.BeautyExclusive.com

Men's Jewelry Box?

I would like to get my father a 'jewelry box'. I was originally looking for an antique but have decided I want something new-but really nice.

Professional Nanny?

I have two children ages 11 & 14. I have had nannies in the past but over the past two years I have been home so my children were not reliant on their nanny (because I was very involved in their routine). I am looking for a professional nanny, someone trustworthy-perhaps even with specialized nanny training that works with older children. Can you help me out? I live in Greenwich. -Kate

Carabelle does place nannies and babysitter. We work with our trusted contacts to find the best candidate for your family. We host all preliminary interviews, check references and present the final three candidates to you. If you were to place an ad in the newspaper and specifically describe what you are looking for, you would probably be inundated with calls from nannies from all different backgrounds and with an experience level that ranged from none to much. Truly professional nannies are hard to find and when families find that kind of person to work in their home and with their children, they hold on to them very tightly! They do exist and I would be more than happy to help you find the ideal fit for your home environment.
Given your children's ages and your desire for a professional, I would suggest that you consider the employment of a governess.
A governess is a college educated professional. Governesses are most often charged with transporting the children to and from appointments and school, making play dates and appointments, tutoring the child or overseeing school work, maintaining the school calendar and facilitating the child's involvement in extracurricular activities. Additionally the governess may maintain children's school supplies, wardrobe, video and book library, audio visual equipmemt and computer system. This would be a person you could count on to recognize safety issues, insist on proper etiquette and to keep you fully informed of (and connected to) what goes on in your absence.

If you would like to start your search, please email me at carabelleltd@aol.com or visit http://www.carabelleconcierge.com for additional contact information. Good luck.

Painting on a tie?


I attended a meeting recently where a certain mogul-type was wearing a tie that looked like a famous painting. Because there is no way a guy can get away with complimenting another guy's attire-I didn't mention it. Still, I'd like to find out where it came from & how much they go for. Jason, Manhattan

If it looked anything like the picture,(Franken's Painting Silk Tie) then it would be a Villa Bolgheri tie. The tie's have reproductions of sections of famous paintings by Carpaccio, Canaletto's, Mantegna & Bellini printed on fine Italian silk. Each tie retails for $140.

Help Setting Up Cell Phone and IPOD?



I just purchased a Samsung smartphone because I was sold on the ability to be completely organized from my phone. But I don't know how to set it up and even if I figure it out, this will require imputting in volumes of details from various databases. I have the same problem with the ipod I received for my birthday. I'm more than excited that it can hold so much music-but it's been sitting on a shelf for three months because I have neither the time nor the inclination to set it all up. Is there an electronics technician you can reccomend to help me with these things? VS

This is quite common. Setting up these electronic devices requires a time investment alot of people find hard to make. Collect your various databases; phones, ledgers, address books and computer address books and leave them along with your new phone near the computer you intend to designate as the telephone's host. Then gather all of the CD's, songs and/or a list of songs you want on your ipod together with your ipod and leave that together with the computer you wish to host the ipod. Now call, Carabelle Concierge. This is one of the many time saving services we perform for our valued clients.
