WHERE: NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE
FFF loves… Jordan’s witty and fabulous guide on how to stay classic, gorgeous and graceful. She is the Poster Girl for her own advice!
STAY: Boutique Hotels — I love the charm, service and uniqueness of them, and almost always prefer them to a big chain hotel.
EAT: Il Cielo - a fabulous Italian restaurant in Beverly Hills, CA. The roof opens so you can dine under the stars. So romantic!
VISIT: Libraries - I’m obsessed with them. Whenever I arrive at a new place, I head straight for the city’s public library. Many times, they have incredible art and architecture — plus, all those great books!
EAT: Babycakes NYC — the world-famous gluten-free bakery in New York City. I can’t leave the city without making a pit stop for their chocolate chip cookie sandwiches.
DRINK: Caribou Coffee — this coffee chain is usually only found in the North, but it’s so good! I will literally drive dozens of miles out of the way for their decaf Turtle Mocha. Plus, they give you little chocolate-covered coffee beans as a treat!
SHOP: Fred Segal — the multi-level shopping hotspot in LA… sigh… I could spend hours and many, many dollars in there.
EAT: SATCO - this hole-in-the-wall Tex-Mex eatery in Nashville is a staple for me. Their chips and queso are stellar, plus they blast 70’s rock on the patio all day long.
SHOP: United Colors of Benetton Baby — it’s kind of hard to find trendy clothes for my baby girl, so I always get excited to find the rare Benetton Baby store.
SHOP: Boston bookstores — I love any kind of setting that has to do with learning or academia, and the Harvard bookstores around Cambridge, MA are just about as cute as they come: Rodney’s Bookstore, Globe Corner, Curious George Books & Toys, etc.

About How to be a Hepburn in a Hilton World:
In a society driven by celebutante news and myspace profiles, women of class, style and charm are hard to come by. The Audrey and Katharines of the world continue to lose their lustre as thongs, rehab and outrageous behaviour burn up the daily headlines. But, despite appearances, guys still want a girl they can take home to their mother, employers still like to see a tailored suit and peers still respect classy conduct. So is it possible to maintain old fashioned virtues in a modern world without looking like a starchy Amish grandma? Christy shows women how in this guide to glamorous style, professional success and true love…the classy way. Full of fun assignments, notable names and real-life examples, Christy offers a new look at seemingly ‘old fashioned’ advice. She covers diet, speech, work ethic, friends, relationships, manners, makeup and fashionable yet modest clothing, showing modern ladies how they can be beautiful, intelligent and fun while retaining values and morals.
