UP ON THE LAVENDER FARM

The Lavender Farm in Maui was perched high up on the hill in the middle of the island. On a morning so foggy, you could only see clouds rolling out into the ocean below. Peaceful. I couldn’t wait to awake my senses as scent and fragrances are some of my favorite things to discover. My powder room has a whole shelf dedicated to perfumes from around the world, lavender being something I love to lather on my body before bed. It’s a scent that just makes me melt. Lucky for us, the lavender fields were in bloom….they smelled so fresh and delicate. I wanted to pluck the whole garden and take it home with me! It’s a soft, feminine, yet so powerful scent. One to pluck and stick in a book to dry up to keep forever.

THE ULTIMATE 3 PIECE SWIMSUIT

My second Miami Swim Week is officially accomplished. I flew from London to NYC to Miami this week, and I have 2 nights to get the most of swim week! Last time I went was about 2 years ago. I walked in a runway show…flooding back memories to my days at 15 and 16 years old, when all I did was runway work in both NY and LA! But as an editor, I love getting to plop down front row and just enjoy the show. So many vibrant colors. Amazing music. So many healthy, and athletic bodies. It was more like a place to celebrate what makes women so beautiful, in all our shapes and sizes. And it’s swim week…it’s mean to be complete fun! South Beach. Sun. The Raleigh. The Gale. We got some scattered showers but still, the scorching hot, hot, Miami heat was coming in strong. Swim week is the epitome of both work and pleasure.

A TRUE AMERICAN HOLIDAY | MAUI

By now, you have probably noticed my travel go-to look is a messy low bun, wide leg pants, and bold earrings. It’s always elegant, and it just works perfectly in this balmy weather. This summer was jam packed with trips to extraordinarily beautiful places, but Maui certainly stood out to me. Maybe it was because Mom and Dad got to join us on the island after our work trip. Dylana and I can barely remember a past family vacation. When you travel as much as we do, our normal vacation consists of going back to our Los Angeles home for Christmas to avoid the NYC snow. It was as easy as that. Fly to LA, sit on the front porch, and just soak in the winter sun, avoiding East Coast winters at all cost. This family trip was a lot different. It was super exciting to hop on the plane and once again, travel with our parents as adults. They seem a lot more like my best friends than anything else.

BREEZY IN BLUE

Now isn’t this the most stunning landscape you’ve ever seen? The sky so blue…the ocean behind me. It’s where the birds nest in Maui’s summer and also the pathway to the most beautiful of rocky cliffs. I certainly went off the beaten path a little during my stay, and got blown away in blue.
