Cool Change Sailing
I love sailing. The calm of the water and sudden bursts of activity. I hadn’t been since the Hudson River in July 2011. Sometimes you just have to live large. We chartered a 50 foot private boat and took her out for the day.
Our captain was Conrad Sargent of Cool Change Sailing, a former pro sailer from New Zealand who’s been around the world and then some. Look him up next time you’re in Miami.
Escape from winter weather. Off to LA!
How to make a surprise Christmas parcel from Australia that much better? Including the Furry Friends milk chocolate bars from Cadbury. My friends are the best. PS The wombat was the first to go.
Lest there be a gin I haven’t tried, a friend just gifted me The Botanist by Bruichladdich. She’s beautiful.
I received many a fabulous Christmas card this year, but Susanna of Von Deren Films takes the cake: A card by Seltzer that endorses holiday headpieces!!!! I mean…

Holiday cookies almost too beautiful to eat.
Gaga’s Workshop at Barneys New York. ‘The designs are fascinating and slightly demented, as seen in an $85 box of cookies shaped like her outfits, including a meat dress.’ They’re also colorful, loud and go toward a good cause.
And the selection is random. Didn’t expect to see one of my childhood favorites, Matilda, by Roald Dahl, among the 220 Lady Gaga-themed gifts. I should’ve known better.
I do love a snowglobe, but I ultimately went home empty handed. Neither here nor there. It was a surreal retail experience combining Gaga’s wild imagination with that of holiday folklore, and I admire Barneys for continuing to push the yuletide envelope.
I love a floral headpiece, no matter what time of year. Try one for holiday soirées. Pictured with my friend Stanley Wong of BEASTSOCIAL.
Halloweens of the Past
Every year, my dear friend and creative co-conspirator Von Deren Films and I wait until the last second before we decide okay, let’s to do something for Halloween. But historically, we have a good run…
As Edie and Andy. And as Slash and Axl…
I could not get out of New York fast enough Friday night. Was craving crisp autumn air, pumpkin picking, cider…
…and the quiet beauty of a field illuminated by this waning moon.
Obsessed with gift wrap that’s appropriated or simply clever. Loving this Wordless Wrapping Paper by Fabio Milito and Francesca Guidotti, featured on AHAlife.
