A Glorious Day in Venice

Had a glorious day in Venice, strolling past the many dogs out enjoying the end of the California storms. In fact, everyone was out (and shopping!) We did out own shopping at Irene Neuwirth's beautiful light infused studio (shown above). If you want to grab an amazing bite of lunch, we cannot recommend a better place than Hals. Period.

Our Trip to Havana, Cuba: Amazing & Amazing Art

It was a whirlwind tour of Havana, Cuba to deliver medical supplies to the pharmacy, tour the Jewish Community, and immerse ourselves in the art community. Shown above, the Art Museum's famous painting of Castro, a stunning piece of sculpture by artist Mayito depicting a red shoe and inspired by a Tarantino movie, and a visit to the landscaped tiled world of Fuster. The entire neighborhood seems tiled and we were surprised that the leaves on the trees weren't tiled too! More pics to come, including cars and cigars, stay tuned!

Other Beautiful Looks from the Golden Globes

While my personal favorite remains Calista Flockhart in her Cathy Waterman, one couldn't help but notice Penelope Cruz, Emily Blount, Maria Menounas, and Jayma Mayes. What do they have in common? Beautiful and simple gowns and radiant smiles! And those umbrellas didn't hurt either!

Golden Globes Beauty: Calista Flockhart in Cathy Waterman

Feminine and glowing and on the arm of Harrison Ford, Calista Flockhart nailed one of the prettiest looks of the evening in a simple, shimmery gown and beautiful jewelry from Cathy Waterman. Can't wait to dig into Cathy's other studio treasures on Friday!!

I just couldn't resist a last minute trip to NYC to see Medea & Tara Miko of VSA. The new collection is knockout and I wrote til my pen ran out. Stay tuned for a great season!!! On another note, had so much fun having drinks with my bestest friend in the world who just made a power move in the lofty world of headhunting. Oh yes, must be called executive search by now, but it really is hunting heads. Melanie Kusin you rock baby!!!
