TO COLD SPRING IN THE AUDI RS3

As a New Yorker, it’s so important to get out of the city, and drive. I’m an LA girl, born and raised…we love being behind the wheel. It’s that freedom of being able to cruise, escape the chaos, and breath in the fresh country air. Having a car in the the city is the ultimate luxury. Meet the new Audi RS3, isn’t it a beauty? This baby just launched in the US for the first time. My absolute dream car. It has just the right amount of space for packing in my friends, just enough room for luggage, and still feels sporty and super chic. This car can really fly, literally going from 0-60 in literally 3.9 second! I love the way the engine roars when I press the Start button…Audi always makes me feel like I’m in a race car. Here, I did one night in Cold Spring, in upstate New York with my sister. We were ready for farm-to-table dishes, a spa day at our favorite apothecary, and a few moments to just soak in the gorgeous views. Like they always say, “the road is better than the inn.” So here are a few of my favorite snapshots along the way.

SOMEWHERE OUT EAST | MONTAUK

I took my Audi R8 to Montauk this summer, and boy does this baby vrrooom fast. Summer never feels complete without a car and the open road. You just feel free, unstoppable, and more excited to explore than ever before. I was out east for a weekend work trip…but managed to squeeze in a ton of R&R. Montauk is a place I’ve been going to for years, but this time, it felt new, exciting, and special. With the usual stops, like dinner at Crow’s Nest and countless hours in the roman baths at Gurney’s, I also ventured out to Sag Harbor. We sailed away in a friend’s boat called The Kiwi in Sag Harbor out to the beautiful untouched shores of Gardiner’s Island. Some of the most peaceful beaches are out East…as are the memories.

BARE ON THE BLACK SAND

I was literally toasting on the black sand beaches of Maui this summer. The darker the sand, the hotter it actually gets. Within only 10 minutes, I could feel the tip of my nose and shoulders immediately turning pink. For some reason this particular beach wouldn’t show up on our GPS. With just a little wooden sign saying “beach,” we followed it down a tiny road leading to an absolutely perfect little black sand cove. The most off-the-beaten path you can get. What I remember most is the breeze, and chasing my hat down the beach everywhere I turned. But it was also it’s intense color palette that left me smitten.

UNDERSTATED GLAMOUR | ST MAARTEN

It felt very Old Hollywood glam at the La Samanna Hotel in St. Maarten. It’s beautiful veranda and pool, perched perfectly on the side of the cliff. It’s a place I would only read about in novels. I whipped out my most ruffled and metallic dress for the afternoon…both it and my sweat glistening in the island sun, as I was lulled by the waves.
