In fueling the business of fashion, MAGIC MARKET WEEK impacts what the world will be wearing.
Well guys, I am off to Vegas today for the MAGIC Show.It dawned on me that some of you may not know what the MAGIC show is so I’ve included a little synopsis for you above. Can’t wait to share with you all the goodies and great lines to be discovered! Have a fabulous Tuesday!
This beautiful apartment is located in the Hôtel des Maréchaux, in the Place de l’Etoile in France. It offers an amazing 3,982 sq. ft. of Parisienne awesomness, including a view of the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. The recently renovated apartment features 4 bedrooms and 4 baths + a staff studio apartment and adjoining parking. I have already created a life in my head around this apartment, one in which I have a bedroom-sized closet of amazing clothes and attend Paris Fashion Week regularly . . .
Hello friends!! It’s my last day here in San Franciso and we have had a ball!!! We took a 2 year hiatus from our yearly Frisco trips and boy have I missed this place!!! Rob + I drove up this past Friday for our anniversary get away. This city is so beautiful to me. I never get tired of it!! My dream is to one day own a home here. Im posting this from my phone, so I hope it works. I just wanted to share some of the beauty I’ve captured through my lens during my time here. Meanwhile, I hope you are all having marvelous Mondays! Go forth and prosper!!!
Today I am catching up on work & staying cozy. This weekend Rob and I went to San Diego sans kiddies. We had a great time. San Diego is a beautiful city. I’ll share more of our visit tomorrow. Just wanted to touch base since I have apparently been AWOL since I discovered those Tom Ford python pumps a week ago. (my bad!) I also started my journey back to short hair. Did my first 2 cuts last week and the week before… tee hee…
Well, tomorrow the kiddies are back in school. I can hardly believe it is that time of year again! This summer was a lot of fun, and although we didn’t take any trips this summer, we spent a lot of time together and it was good for my soul . . . and now, it’s back to work & school!!! I welcome the change in schedule. Not so much the drop offs and pick ups, but the routine of it all seems to have a stabilizing effect on the kiddies . . . (and the husband for that matter). Now all I need is for the weather to do a drastic 180 and drop about 40 degrees!!! Then, I will be in heaven!
Day 1 was pretty low key. The drive out was great! no traffic, good conversation and lots of . . . ugly, brown, dessert scenery. When we first got to Vegas we headed to Whole Foods to stock up on healthy goodies for the room. It started to thunder and pour down rain while we were inside. The checker told us it was Monsoon Season here in Vegas. Wow! Didn’t know they had Monsoons in Vegas!!! After dodging the “monsoon” we checked into our room @ The Mirage, which, by the way, was 3000+ times more fabulous than the smokey, dingy box I stayed in @ the Riviera for MAGIC in February . . . Already the trip was off to a great start! After a quick lunch we picked up our badges and walked the show briefly. It was already 5:30 and the show was closing in an hour, but our timing was great because we ran in to a friend of Gina’s who invited us to the CALPaK Hennessey party @ The Palms Resort. They rented the whole 26th floor and had different themes and music for each room. My favorite was the Barbie Suite. So cutely decorated!! Barbie’s got great taste! But did you know that Barbie also has a stripper pole in her bathroom? Hmmm . . .
Today consisted of ALOT of walking and sourcing. There was more rain & thunder, which as I said before, I LOVE!!! I rarely hear thunder in Cali, and I welcome most changes of weather. We were indoors all day unless we were on the shuttle, so it didn’t effect us much. (except for the power outage @ the Sourcing show. There were no lights when we got there and it created a kind of “intimate” feeling). I saw lots of fabulous clothes and jewelry @ Project & Pool. MAGIC had some nice stuff too, but I felt more at home in the hustle and bustle (and loud music) of the Project & Pool tradeshows. There is definitely a different feel between the shows. I was actually surprised how calm and seemingly slow the MAGIC show was. The economy has definitely had an effect on things. Photos of the products are not allowed so I can’t visually share alot of the goodies I saw, but you know I have mentally cataloged them!! Tomorrow we are walking FN . . . the shoe show. Can’t wait!!! ☺
Good Morning friends!! Its been non-stop since we got here! Today it is thundering and raining…. I love it!! I’m on the shuttle from our hotel to the Mandalay Bay to walk more shows. Today is the first day we are really getting our feet wet. (both literally & figuratively!!) I’m blogging from my phone, which I never do, so bear with me. Not sure how this works, but I just love the capabilities that modern technology offers us!! Amazing! Today will consist of lots of walking and connecting. Hope you are all having a fabulous one!! I’ll post more of my journey as I go!! xo
