The Neon Boneyard

The Neon Boneyard

In my many trips to Las Vegas over the years, a few celebratory ones for sure, but the majority for business I’ve had the opportunity to visit spots like the Neon Boneyard.

The history there is rich with signs from places such as the iconic Algiers to wedding chapel signs and famous ones such as Stardust. For sure with a Vegas visit.

Fatty Sundays

Fatty Sundays

And so it goes in the trendy sweets world … the cupcake was replaced by the cronut, then the eclair ousted the croissant-doughnut hybrid and now Fatty Sundays has kicked up the pretzel to the cutest version I have ever seen. With flavors like banana cream, berry granola, lemon cookie, and pumpkin spice sprinkle covered pretzela are now all the rage. The modern twist on the classic rod shape is hand dipped making them super #spyluxe and pretty! http://www.fattysundays.com/

Luxe Lodge

Schumacher’s new Alpine chic Luxe Lodge collection elegantly mixes stitched leathers, plush mohairs, textured charcoal grey and raven hued fabrics that fold into one another to help create a rustic yet refined look. In the winter months (particularly these brutally cold ones in New York) we retreat to our abodes. If you have to bare the city rather than being on the slopes in Aspen why not give your apartment a dose of chalet chic. www.fschumacher.com

Christian Tortu

When you think of the master class in any category the very top of the heap in the world of floral designers is a man by the name of Christian Tortu. The Parisian based designer makes the most sensational bouquets I have ever laid my eyes on. There is a fantasy quality to them, they are grandiose but balanced with a sense of modernity. If you’re in France visit him to see his arrangements or experience the beauty he creates from afar with his fragrances and candles. www.christiantortu.net
