The Weekend Guide : Things To Do in Burlington, Vermont

6.29.2011


The French influence is still verdant in Burlington,Vermont... There's Lake Champlain, the gourmet cheeses & fruit plates, the cafes, restaurants, and it has managed to keep that quaint, old-world charm  that remains in many parts of Europe. It really feels like an American version of Switzerland here, with green pastures, farms and beautiful landscapes.

Things to Do: A cruise along the lake is a must, preferably at sunset, and for a dash of French flair have lunch or dinner at Leunig's Bistro. For breakfast, make a beeline to The Skinny Pancake for some tasty crepes and then go for a stroll through the Church Street Marketplace, Burlington's social center.
Extra: One of my favorite parts was stopping at Dakin Farm on the way back to NYC to pick up some of the state's famous maple syrup and natural honey direct from the honeybees... yummees.



Got my sugar fix!

Going Retro on Nikki Beach

6.28.2011


I searched high and low for the perfect retro style, red one-piece until I finally found it by JETS Jessika Allen, an Australian designer that makes gorgeous 'premium luxury swimwear'. My sun hat kept getting blown by the wind into the shape of Captain Morgan's pirate hat, haha, so I decided to ditch it... Just a cool little day at the beach, making faces at Jenn, and taking pics of our feet :-P

Poolside in Miami

6.24.2011


I think this is where I need to be every day of my life... maybe switch it up a bit by heading to the beach every now and then... male servants wearing no clothes, feeding me grapes, and fanning me with feathers... Yep, that sounds just about right.

Bohéme Boutique - A Fashionable Hippie Haunt

6.21.2011



I walked by this store while visiting a friend who lives by the Mondrian Miami and I completely fell in love! A 'Fashionable Hippie Haunt', this little shop embodies the Gypset. Owners Lydia Pefaur and Edit Meurrens travel the globe to find things like hundred-year-old tables from Bali and glamorous beach chic items. It's the perfect place to pick up exotic pieces from around the world. There were so many beautiful things I wish I had taken more pics! Guess that just means I'll have to go back ;-P

Syrian Gypsy

6.08.2011


The famous tiger print scarf seen here and here serves many purposes, LoL, like when a Bedouin tried to teach me how to tie a traditional head scarf at a totally pimped out tent in the Syrian desert. This post was of course inspired by that terrific gift I mentioned last week. What do you think of this gypsy-ish look?
