Barcelona...


A month ago I sent my husband an invite…. It instructed him to block out a week in Feb…. that week covered his birthday…… I told him he would need good walking shoes, evening shoes,  a dinner jacket, a couple sweaters, 2 dress shirts, 2 pairs of jeans and 3 t-shirts….. love care and total adventure would be provided……
I rented an apartment, I book the flights, I booked the yacht (for one day) and personal chef, I booked the restaurants and I booked the cars to take us from door too door….
The morning of the adventure I woke him up and said ‘Hi baby, you need to pack your bag now as your getting on a plane.... I took him to Barcelona for his birthday.

He has been to 82 countries and Spain many times… but never to Barcelona. I on the other hand have been there twice and I knew he would love it and I wanted to share this magical city with him and be his personal tour guide….

The result?.... we had an amazing time and he loved it so much he now wants a place there ( I will keep you posted!!)

Big Mac...


I love the versatility and the mystery of a Mac…. I love what it creates…..
worn with heels, sneakers or brogues it adds a little extra ‘something’….
Growing up in New York as far as I was concerned, only two types of people wore Mac’s…. science teacher’s and ‘flasher’s’!....  as I got older and my taste matured, I started to view it differently… .. not swayed by the iconic Burberry version… I always had a little something for it… but from afar…..  As my love for brogues grew… so it did for the Mac…. For me it is the perfect combination…  the brogues add an intelligence….. the mac?... well it keeps it ‘s cool .. a nonchalant mystery…. leaving room for discovery…. Never telling its own story….
Now a days when I see a Mac… I feel inquisitive … I pay closer attention to who is wearing it and of course how they are wearing it and then I wonder…… who is that person?....

Smiling...


So we have discussed the things that we don’t like……………… how about the things we do like?….

In no particular order……. Random things that make me smile….

(I omitted family… as that’s a given.)

The smell of Diptyque Baies candle…
When you smile at someone….. and they smile back…..
The sales assistant that calls when that item you have waited for comes in stock!!
The small child that has never set eyes on you before but looks at you like you are the most interesting thing in the world….
Anyone over the age of 80… they normally say the most inappropriate things….
The driver that gives you way to either drive or walk across the street…
The staff in my local coffee cafe that says in chorus ‘Hiiiii Q’, …. and instantly I feel like I'm in an episode of Cheers…
The grocery store attendant with the toothless smile….  (Its all gummy but its beautiful because he has no teeth but he’s still smiling!!!)
The guy on the corner holding a placard that reads ‘free hugs’
(ok, I haven’t seen him in a while…. maybe he got arrested…. who knows…. But I would like too think that despite the fact that he had deep close set eyes… his intentions were pure….????)
Street performers…..
The first random ‘good morning’
Anyone who openly embraces his or her imagination
Adults in a park on a swing
People wearing headphones that bop and nod their head to the beat…..
Dogs…. Any breed…. I love them
Hot water bottle, Echinacea tea and a good book….on a cold night… They all go so well together.
That perfect outfit that says ‘nailed it’………. I always stop and compliment the wearer…. It’s a beautiful thing!
Any act of selfless kindness
Ok.... your turn!.....
