Travel Inspirations/Capetown South Africa

Italian Inspirations/Milan

The (new) modern/conceptual art destination PRADA Fondazione -designed by stararchitect Rem Koolhaas

Open seven days a week ...former distillery plus new buildings...featuring site specific and collected conceptual/modern art, sculpture, videos... 

The wine-Italian grape-100% Nebbiolo

The eats-hunks of Parmigiana and fresh fruit

or...Nutrella Grilled Cheese -at Bar Luce (Prada Foundation designed by film director Wes Anderson, seriously)

The footwear...high glamor sneakers by luxe wedding dress designer Antonio Riva Milano...comfortable enough for all day walking...

 or limited edition drops-Adidas Falcon (if/when)

Fall Favorites!

A new season...a good a time as any to replenish a few stand-byes!


Reboot drinking + hauling options...

Summer staple sip Pinot Grigio-gets a sophisticated upgrade that not only pairs well with light summer fare (ceviche, fresh fruit salads, grilled fish)...but also heartier cold weather soups+stews. Dessimis Pinot Grigio Fruili Isonzo DOC 2016 (Vie Di Romans) by the 3rd generation of Gallo family members (and no that those Gallo ) is a way more polished wine than our previous palate memory of what that wine tastes like---
This one is refreshing yet has a memorable minerally palette-with some fruits that made us rethink pinot grigio period. (around $39). Actually say this is a Chablis competitor. 

 And while changing beverages-it might be time to ditch the beach bound hauler for game day ORCA coolers-decked out in your fav NFL/NCAA team's moniker. Tail gate alerts!

Ready To Eat Vegan Snacks

Plant based treats-as snacks or entrees- are leaving the fringe of food aisles... finding favor beyond its prior niche eaters' status.

Recent Tries...

Ready To Eat Eats-Plant, Protein Functional

Better for you -no cook -snacks and non-meat and vegan protein ...latest trends in foods are tasty, too!

Texture On The Runway/Natural Haircare

Gotham Hall/NYC

65% of the world's population has curly-wavy-coily hair-according to the dynamic Michelle Breyer, leading light of the website, e-commerce platform, digital media giant- and overall cheerleader for luscious locks...for 2 decades already (!!!) it was only a matter of time before major and niche haircare brands for that massive haircare market went natural (toxic ingredients be gone)

---and imo-more mainstream. 

Late Summer Picks

Our adult take on back to school shopping-is limited to our three fav, food (sweets, and drinks....                                                          

                                                         The Perfect Shoe
Summer weather-lasts a long(er) time-despite calendar indication...yet we're over the flip-flops.

Capetown, South Africa-In A Day (or a few)

Outdoors' paradise, cultural and artistic destination, boutique/unique items from burgeoning fashion/jewelry handcrafts,  plus culinary delights and world class wines...ALL found in abundance in Capetown, South Africa. No wonder so many people we know have this lovely city on their upcoming travel itineraries.
