Lily Bollinger of the Bollinger Champagne house said of bubbly:
“I drink it when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and I drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it, unless I’m thirsty.”
I’m with Lily.

Lenya Jones says
I’m with Alicia – that is the best quote ever.

Hi there-a very understandable and wise philosophy!!
Ulrika / The Freelancer's Fashionblog says
Yes! I was just thinking about that quote some time ago, wondering who had said it and how it really went 🙂
mix it with fruit and it’s good for you 😉
Everybody Says Don't says
Great quote! Mmmmm champagne! xx
bell de ville says
The best “bolli” drinkers ever were the “Ab Fab” girls. God I loved that show.
The Maiden Metallurgist says
I was going to say…someday we’ll have to share a bottle…but let’s just have our own bottles and toast each other. How’s that idea?!
Who wouldn’t want to look and be as happy as you are in this photo! Vive la champagne!
You seriously has a perfect smile 🙂
Alice Olive says
Hands down, best quote ever. Don’t all fabulous women subscribe to this outlook on life?
Mish Dish says
Cheers! I’ll drink to that.
Couture Carrie says
That quote is fabulous, as are you, WB! Love this pic!
Are you giving away bottles to the first 30 commenters??
Lovely quote and very true to life. 🙂
cheers to you, wendy! 🙂
i can see that you and the bubbly would have so much fun together 😉
Miss Janey says
Miss J, too!
You are the most chic girl in town!
I am your fan!
The real SATC girl!
La Belette Rouge says
Does this mean that I should give Lily champagne instead of water?
only one month til i’m legally allowed to drink the stuff! 😀
Lily is my new hero. I have a bottle of bubbly chilling at all times. Even when there aren’t any other groceries. Well, I guess that statement was true pre-baby. I guess it’s good practice to have food in the house when you have a kid. Ah ha
I LURVE the bubbly stuff. It just makes everything I’m doing that much more fabulous. Cheers to you and your awesome blog!
Told ya’ you look so much better with the pearly whites shining on us! Did you see Robin Leech of Lifestyle of the Rich & famous there?!
Iron Chic says
Champagne makes me do CRAZY things. CRAZY!
There’s something about it….
Miss Peelpants says
I most heartily agree. If I could, I would drink it all the time. Steed and Mrs Peel have been a very good influence on me….
I agree…especially if it is clicquot!!! I ALWAYS have a chilled bottle of bubbly in my fridge:)
I can never say no to bubbly. Especially champagne. In fact, I want to go make out with a glass right now, come to think of it 🙂
Gerri Ward says
Solely Deliciously OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!:))
The VEUVE – I can’t wait, I want it in the maternity ward. Although dark beer is more de rigueur for nursing, right?
Honeybunches of Roses says
Oh, to drink champagne (and how about good vouvray too) when thirsty… Love it.
Topaz Horizon says
I’m allergic to alcohol but I never refuse a glass of champagne!
Oh, and yes, WendyB, I thought about it and indeed, diamonds are not boring. I’m endlessly fascinated with my engagement ring so I take back what I said. After all, if I get another diamond, I will not refuse!!!
Fittingly, my anti-spam word is: bejewel =D
Couldn’t have said it better myself 🙂 Oh and I can’t remember if I already answered your question, but yes my locket does swivel and yes you should design one 🙂
K @ Blog Goggles says
Ooh… amen to that!
That quote totally speaks to me! Ill drink to that too. 😀
i am so with her on this one
Haha. That is a hilarious quote!
Once upon a time, I managed the SEA PR for the House of Champagne Veuve Clicquot and Krug, best two years of my life. Hic.
Wendy, please disregard the initial post, I’m obviously unable to string words together when under the influence.
best quote EVER. also my new mantra.
Words to live by! I frequently don’t have milk for coffee but there is always, always one bottle of chilled champagne in my fridge. Priorities.
