Veuve Clicquot during Sunset

What a wonderful time for champagne. We’re in the midst of a Fourth of July weekend, my fifth Fourth of July in NYC. It feels deep into summer already, with my sunburnt shoulders, heavy tan lines on my feet and the air con blasting every moment it can in my apartment. Really, it was just two weekends ago that I was in Maui celebrating the launch of Champagne Hale at the Montage Kapalya Bay with Veuve Clicquot and other really awesome people. The sunsets on the west side of Maui are probably some of the most dramatic and long lasting that I have ever been lucky enough witness. And they were appreciated even more thanks to a little evening champagne buzz. It was like floating on a tropical cloud 9. Time slows, and the glow effect spreads so that nothing else matters but that moment of watercolor canvas on the sky. By coincidence, I wore this metallic dotted dress, which only maximized the effect of what I saw before my eyes. I made plans to go to the tip of the rocks, as close to that sunset as I could, but in my sandals it would be near impossible. I will save that for another trip, but this little edge overlooking the bay will do for now. Maui is magic in its simplicity, openness and blue, blue sea, a reminder of life beyond where only our feet can take us. Thanks Veuve Clicquot for kickstarting my week in Hawaii. It was pretty unforgettable. A celebration of summer and nature and relaxation. I little champagne always adds that extra something special.

Island Time, Courtesy of Maui

Hello, everyone. I’m back from Maui, which was part work trip with Veuve Clicquot and part family vacation with the parents. The entire trip struck a balance that was just right, and by the end of it all of my city stresses seemed to escape me. What a difference family time makes. I miss my parents already, and really do wish they lived closer than all the way across the country. But that just makes reunions like this so much more amazing. I’m already looking forward to the next one. The plane ride back home was the only thing to bring me back some aches and pains, but a massage is always a quick fix. I’m glad to be back home and at it again at the content creation routine. But just be warned, there will be a lot of Hawaii photos coming your way this week. It’s a slower week for me, thanks to the Fourth of July holiday and Natalie out of town, but that just means more time for me to focus on writing and coming up with more passion projects that I will be able to share with you all soon. I feel like I’ve put quite a few things on the back burner lately because of too much travel, fatique here and there and making more time than usual for my social life. But hey, summer is here, and I’m officially allowed to be easy on myself when it comes to work. But there is still so much I want to share with you all. I think I see another diary post coming soon. But right now, let’s talk about this Vitamin A swimsuit. It made it’s debut on my Instagram earlier this year when I was in Rio de Janeiro with my boyfriend. I still bring it out every warm weather travel opportunity. And I will continue to do so after this one. There’s something so retro and classic about this one. It’s one of my most flattering suits. Vitamin A’s collections have been on point recently. I’ve come to realize that a life isn’t worth living, if it cannot partially be experienced in a bikini. hehe. Happy Sunday guys!

Summer Sweetness

The end of June is quickly approaching. I don’t know why, but I have this sad feeling like summer is already slipping away, even though it actually just started. Which is why I’ve been trying to work in a bathing suit into my everyday as often as I can. To keep that sparkling, lethargically stunning, endless summer feeling there as long as I can. It’s a trick that works. I’m currently in Hawaii (working remotely at 6am in the morning when I wake up, and after 9:30pm when I’m already in bed). I can get used to this slow yet productive life I’ve been living these past few days. Last weekend in Montauk felt the same, but without the summer sun. I still wore the swimsuit though, as you can see. With velvet pants to balance everything all out. Our stay at the Surf Lodge was short and sweet, thanks to Grey Goose who hosted my friends and I for the weekend. A sleepy weekend that felt just right. A sleepy weekend that I wish could extend into infinity and beyond. A sleep weekend that makes me feel both young and old at the same time. That summer sweetness. I’ve been capturing more and more on my Instax these past few travels. They are little reminders to live in the moment and keep the act of overthinking on the back burner. It relaxes me more to know that pre-planning really is not needed as much as we thought it is. It gives me a sense of ease about my actions. It keeps me from pondering too much about the next thing, or what has happened before. Summer should be exactly like an Instax photo. Or a roll of film to be developed later. It should be a surprise. Something unexpected but in its own way just right. Summer should be only that feeling of here and now. From the top of your head, to the tips of your toes. Happy summer lovelies. Talk soon.

Valentino Details

June 22, 2017

___

Valentino dress and purse
AG jeans
___

A thrown together look for the Valentino resort show a little while back. A menswear blouse up top, an elegant wash of lace down bottom. It felt right cinched at the waist and layered over a rugged pair of two-tone jeans. BOY GIRL has always been my favorite way to mix styles. And look at me! A pair of heels! The highest pair I have actually. Forgot the brand at the moment, but the length of the lace and cut of the jeans . . . they required a lot of height to feel pulled together. I was definitely the tallest girl in the room. But I like being tall. And I had to change my shoes right after taking these pictures. But hey, at least I got to wear what’s my dream look in my head in the real world for a little while. hehe. This week has been a busy one . . . but Hawaii awaits tomorrow. Get ready for the blog to get into full on summer mode. It’s about time! Happy Thursday!
