Ciara on Mentorship, Motherhood and Inspiration From Hillary Clinton, Simone Biles and Jennifer Lopez
So I spent the first three weeks here very mellow. Didn’t see a soul and did this whole spa routine — great trainer who comes to the house, amazing facialist and masseuse. Lost 15 pounds. It was all about health. But August is about partying — I got home at 8 a.m. this morning!
This weekend my mother, my sister Serra and I all went down to St. Tropez. Our house is on the water so you can go straight from the house to the boat, and it only takes half an hour to get there, but I feel like I’ve gone to the moon and back. I’m so exhausted!

We swam off the beach at Bastille Blanche and came into port for lunch — at Cinquante Cinq, the beach restaurant, and this new place called Nicki’s Beach with great sushi and Balinese-style beds to recline on. Quite a scene at Nicki’s on Sunday — Sabrina Ramsay, Caroline Berthet, Elisabeth Kieselstein-Cord, Masha Mimran, Gianni Pigazzi, Kadee Robbins, Olga of Greece, Nicolas Berggruen, Cynthia Kauffman, Serena Boardman, Dori Cooperman, Adam and Elizabeth Lindemann and a whole London crew all there. Saw Puffy at Cinquante Cinq and then again, speeding by on top of a sports car. He was sitting on the roof holding a bottle of champagne. So Puffy!
