South Beach Blue: Art Basel 2015

It’s a bit strange that an R&B song is what inspired me to blog. I won’t question it, inspiration always seems to arise from the most unusual and unexpected of places. That combined with the fact that I’m still on a high from my recent…

52 Books, 52 Weeks

I like challenges. I’ve been in a lifelong love affair with books. I have an obsession with quotes. I don’t read as often as I want to. I buy more books than I actually read. I need a reason to commute to work instead…

Travel & Style Diary: L.A.

Work/life balance? I wish I knew what that meant. Since my last post, I’ve had a rough time striking that balance between doing what I love to do and taking care of what I have to do at work. I have a newfound respect…
