From the same people who brought the ever chic San Giorgio hotel to Mykonos’ rustic southern coast, Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel recently opened a nearby beach and social club on the idyllic Greek island. The layout of the bohemian oasis, with open terraces decked out with hammocks and oversized day beds, was inspired by Ancient Greek community gathering places and designed to bring people together to eat, listen to live music or just relax. Paradise!
Designers and twin sisters Sara Brady and Ashley Cornil are turning up the millinery game with their line of accessorized hats. Their latest collection, inspired by their time spent in Spain and Mallorca’s coastal life, include straw hats adorned with reversible woven ribbons, pom pom trims, and silk tassel pins.
Abandoned and breathtaking. Perched on a cliffside overlooking the Black Sea, Romania’s majestic Casino Constanta is a historic monument that was built in 1904 to meet the needs of the Black Sea tourists during the Belle Époque period. This pearl of the Black Sea used to be a major attraction for European royalty and the elite but sadly, it has been abandoned since 1990. Renovations are expected to begin in the fall of 2015, so hopefully she will shine again in all her Art Nouveau glory.
Loose, kinda messy and to the side . . . suddenly, I’ve got long hair envy.
Telluride is in one word, majestic. I’ll never forget the first time I visited the small old silver mining town, which also happens to be my husband’s birthplace, nearly 8 years ago. I instantly fell in love. How could one not be charmed by the historic downtown district and the surrounding steep forested mountains, red rock cliffs and the tallest free falling waterfall in Colorado? The beauty just might make you forget about the altitude sickness that potentially comes along with being at 8,750 feet above sea level. The air up there is just better, clearer and downright glorious. So when LG recently sent me their latest G4 smartphone, clad in leather and sporting an impressive camera, I decided to bring it along with me on my trip to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival during the summer solstice. I was so impressed by by the long lasting battery life, manual shooting mode and high-res image sensors, that I didn’t miss my lugging around my DSLR all week – not for one moment.
