You may know Natalie Joos as a former model, prized casting agent, esteemed industry consultant, founder of the oh-so-clickable Tales of Endearment, and overall fashion-world rock star. Well, you can add one more title to the list — Instagram champ. That's why we invited her out to Montauk for a Fourth of July-weekend stay at the Refinery29 Beach House: We knew she'd upload a flurry of beautiful snaps. And, folks, the lady did not disappoint. Ahead, find highlights of Joos' long, sun-drenched weekend of fun, family, and Long Island lounging. Frankly, we had so much fun with her that we might make a yearly thing of it. Here's what she had to say.
"This weekend, I brought my sister, Evelien, to the R29 Beach House. We always have the best time together, because we like the same things: beach, sun, swimming, chilling, laughing and being ridiculous. Rooting around in the house, we discovered an old cocktail-making book in German and decided to read the recipes out loud. I don’t know if anyone else thought it was funny, but we were in tears!"
"The first day was a godsend: quiet, relaxing, happy. I loved that R29's Annie Georgia Greenberg made it out and brought her cute friend Lauren, who happened to be studying to be a doctor. Naturally, we brought all our ailments to her (sometimes in a state of frenzy.) The surrounding nature was beautiful and so inspiring — I wish I lived there. I hated to leave, but at least I took some amazing Instagrams to save all those moments."
