Back from Maternity Leave

Back from Maternity Leave

I wanted to reach out with the news that I’m back from maternity leave. I agave birth to a baby girl, Liberty June Daflos, back in May. She’s our third child and first girl! Our family is over-the-moon and couldn’t love her any more.

I’ve been asked about her name a lot, and as our industry is such a wonderful – and worldly group, I thought I’d share the history here.

Liberty is named after her paternal great-grandmother who was born in Queens, New York, to Greek immigrants who came to the United States through Ellis Island. When they arrived, they said that the Statue of Liberty was the most beautiful sight they had ever seen. With that powerful memory forever in their minds, they chose to name their baby girl Liberty. My husband and  I knew if we were to have a little girl, this would be the name and now she’s here! We celebrate our new daughter and memorialize her grandmother who passed away just a month shy of her birth at the age of 100.

Thank you so much for the many warm wishes I’ve already received upon my return. I’m happy to be back and look forward to connecting with each of you very soon.

Flemings Mayfair – The “Place to Be” in London

London hotel Flemings Mayfair has established itself as the home for high-profile film and theatre actors, authors and other celebrated artists. This fall, the hotel discretely played host to a myriad of distinguished guests, from Rocketman lead-actor Taron Egerton, to former first lady and acclaimed author Hillary Clinton, Richard Madden from the Bodyguard and the iconic Matthew Broderick to name a few.

Recently refurbished and part of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Flemings Mayfair offers one, two and three-bedroom apartments, all lavishly decorated and complete with a fully equipped kitchen, making it the ideal accommodation in the heart of Mayfair. The stylish Penthouse offers direct lift access and a private roof terrace to enjoy London’s skyline on a sunny day. The Townhouse, a unique 7-bedroom private residence with its own separate entrance is the ideal set-up for a private stay for distinguished guests looking for anonymity while visiting London.

Flemings Mayfair is also home to the award-winning restaurant Ormer Mayfair by Michelin-awarded chef Shaun Rankin. Ormer was voted London’s 5th best restaurant in the Harden’s Guide Book and recently won the award for ‘Best Luxury Restaurant in London’.
