If I were to list the top 5 reasons why I love living in California, one would certainly be how fortunate we are being so close to Mexico, one of my absolute favorite places to explore. So when I recently had the opportunity to visit Cabo San Lucas for a luxurious getaway at Auberge’s newly renovated Esperanza, I hopped on a plane faster than you can say tacos and tequila. The moment you step onto the resort’s picturesque cliffside property, you’ll never guess that the strongest hurricane to ever hit Mexico’s southern Baja California peninsula left a trail of massive destruction last September. Today, after months of renovations, the resort is as stunning as ever – thanks to a interior designer Mary Alice Palmer’s, of HKS Hospitality Group, refreshing vision of a cooler color palette of grays and blues and hand-made furnishings and folkloric objects created by Mexican artisans. Every design detail is thought out through and through, which makes the already impeccable service even more exceptional. I must say, it was one of the most indulgent stays I’ve experienced in my many years of travel and I’m just counting the days until I get to go back. If you’ve got a special occasion coming up or just looking for an escape, go to Cabo and stay at Esperanza . . . honestly, trust me!
My definition of loungewear is a ripped t-shirt and oversized sweat pants. It’s about time I retire my off duty attire, especially after learning about Rudas, a line of unisex robes, lawn jackets, and dressing gowns. Each piece is made in New York City and made from high quality linens and silks from Belgium and Japan. Laid back with a hint of luxury. I can get down with that.
Lime, olive, chartreuse, mint, sea foam, emerald, moss, pine, sage, pistachio . . . life’s too short to not go green.
If there is one thing we’re sure to carry with us into fall and the new year, it’s anything with oversized, bell sleeves! Honestly, obsessed.
After visiting California, Nevada, and Florida and photographing what they deem as some of the best Mid-century modern architecture, artistic duo Geebird & Bamby returned to their studio in Wiesbaden, Germany to create the perfect new world. “The New World” is a series of photorealistic landscapes depicting anonymous places of the 20th century. The details are so impeccable, it’s easy to get lost in each image!
