Set on a vast private estate along the Pacific Coast in Mexico sits Cuixmala. Among the many things that set Cuixmala apart from other boutique hotels are an exotic animal preserve, a turtle sanctuary, a coconut plantation, and an organic farm where most of the food consumed on the property is grown. Who doesn’t wants to rent a luxurious and private casita on the Virgin Coast? And did I mention most rooms come with your own chef and butler?! A girl can dream.
It’s impossible not to admire the detail that goes into one of Stephanie K Clark‘s phenomenal embroidered pieces. Her series of embroidered RVs, houses, and log cabins, all embroidered onto stretched canvas with thread and fabric wallpaper, is simply delightful. I even love how she uses thin black thread to outline background features – not a detail missed!
The brilliant curators behind Bona Drag sure know how to make a girl yearn for a way of life where bohemian mysticism and rock ‘n’ roll sensibility collide. Their latest offerings include jewelry from Pamela Love and Mania Mania, printed dresses from Mara Hoffman, lingerie from Lonely Hearts, and handbags from Lizzie Fortunato. All so beautiful and downright covetable.
Raise your hand if you, too, were blown away by the sick mirrored surfboard featured alongside the dangerously cool collection of shark tooth jewelry in Luv AJ‘s latest lookbook.

Lucky for us, designer Amanda Thomas is giving us the exclusive step by step tutorial, showing how we can create the same disco surfboard. And all for under $150.
