Sunday

Yesterday afternoon Will, Lily and I went over to D’s house where K also joined us.

We sat in his courtyard , drank red wine, ordered dinner and finally heard all about his African Safari.

It felt wonderful to be with our Miami family.

Have a great sunday everyone!

The contradicting post

Ha!

So, after I just wrote a post (below) on how I want to wear tights and boots every day instead of a bikini and flip-flops, I’m writing one about how I took Lily to the beach yesterday.

The other night when auntie K was over she mentioned that Lily is a water baby and that the ocean was calling her to heal her hand-foot-and-mouth disease.

Even though the weather is warm enough to go to the beach and go swimming, I refuse to because it’s “winter”.

But, we went, had a great time and the ocean water did seem to make things better.

Salt water and olive oil is all you ever need I tell you. (along with wine, vodka, beer, magaritas…..)

Fly’s eye dome, Miru Kim and Black lips

Hello everyone!

Last night I had a date with a bowl of pasta, my couch and my man. I was so exhausted from the night before.

Why you might ask? Well, it is so hard to get around here by car due to all the Basel traffic that we decided to ride our bikes to the design district.

Can you say 11-12 mile ride there and back with crazy winds against us on the way back? Not so much fun.

But, the night itself was fun!

We started with Buckminster Fuller’s fly’s eye dome which is totally amazing especially at night. It made me feel like I was in space.

Then we headed over to the Primary Projects Gallery where we saw Miru Kim’s installation “I like pigs and pigs like me”.

What can you say about a woman who chooses to express herself by living in a pen at the front of one of the galleries with two pigs for 104 hours?

Art? Maybe not. Animal abuse? Maybe. But definitely makes for good conversation.

We finished the night with an awesome live performance by Black Lips.

They totally rocked it out, told security to get off the stage and basically let their fans get on stage to sing and dance with them. Pretty cool.

Today we are headed to Art Miami.

I wish you all a wonderful saturday!

Basel time!

Are you all ready for Basel week? Good, cause it’s here and thanks to uncle D who will be watching Lily on some nights and thanks to Will, I am planning on being one busy Baselite!

Alex and I sort of started things off here. Tuesday night and last night Kristin and I went around the beach in search of awesome art.

Tuesday night we loved the 1111 building all lit up in Ferrari red and we paid a visit to our favorite Lincoln Rd artists who happen to both be women.

Last night we were a bit disappointed as we walked in and out of hotels who in the previous years had tons of new art to exhibit. Not so last night. Looks like Basel is getting farther and farther away from the beach.

Tonight we will be going off the beach for some more art and a concert!

I will try my best to give you the whole Basel report so, sit back and enjoy some art and Art Basel in Miami!

Thanksgiving 2011

Happy friday everyone! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving yesterday.

We had a chill but great one over at our dear friends Michael and Robbie’s house.

Good friends, lots of yummy food, drinks, cooler weather (in the 70’s)…

And we got home early enough for Lily to go to bed on time and for me to watch The Godfather in my pajamas on our couch.

Perfect.

I wish you all a lovely weekend and safe travels if you are traveling!

Poncho love

Don’t you just love a good poncho? I know I do!

We were in the mountains of West Virginia far from any Target when the Missoni for Target madness happened.

Auntie K however was in Miami and was one of the people in line early in the morning and didn’t know what she had gotten herself into once those doors opened. lol

As always, she thought of Lily and grabbed her one of the cutest ponchos I have ever seen.

Thanks auntie K for Lily’s first poncho! (Missoni no less)
