Books & Guides
Tracy is passionate about tea. So much so she has created wildly popular lines of teas, tea-based beauty products, and opened a chain of tea salons. Privately she has hosted hundreds of stylish tea parties to celebrate all sorts of occasions, and to impart her knowledge and love of tea and entertain gin to wider audience, she authored two tea-themed books.
Her ‘Tea For You’’ title shares tips and ideas for creating personalized moments of delicious indulgence by making your very own customized teas to savor and share.
Tracy is a worthy guide who breaks down the myriad tea options and explains how to design signature blends for friends, family, or just for you by using her simple and creative ideas. Tracy’s creativity blossoms into a wide range of inspirations, including tea-oriented recipes, as well as relaxing tea-based spa and beauty treatments.
Meanwhile in her book titled ‘Tea Party’, Tracy encourages everyone to make their next gathering that much more special by incorporating tea into the menu. Twenty themed tea parties share more than seventy-five recipes, with the focus on fun, not fuss.
The party suggestions are perfect for afternoons with friends, bridal and baby showers, cocktail and dinner parties, picnics or brunches. Ideas and inspirations abound for fabulous, easy, and affordable invitations, decorations, table settings, and charming party favors that tie into each party’s theme.
Under her GypChic brand, Tracy became an ambassador of sorts for the cities closest to her heart, curating guides filled with vintage shops, restaurants, boutiques, juice bars and attractions to help people feel as much a part of those cities as she does.
The guides were geared towards a certain “wanderluxe” demographic - one that appreciates mid-century design with a hint of new and old bohemian flair.
The guides covered areas such as Greenpoint in Brooklyn, Joshua Tree in California, Palm Beach in Florida, LA’s Venice Beach and of course her beloved Palm Springs. Every stop reflects Tracy’s unwavering dedication to her particular lifestyle… chic and free spirited.
