Seven Magic Mountains

Posted on Tuesday, January 10, 2017

Last week my family and I went to Palm Dessert for the holidays but before we arrived in California, we decided to stay in Las Vegas for a night. First we went to Andrea's an amazing restaurant in the Wynn Hotel that had killer hand rolls. After dinner we saw The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil which was surreal. The whole show was like watching a dream. I highly recommend going to LOVE if you happen to visit Vegas. On our drive to Palm Desert we stopped at the Seven Magic Mountains by Ugo Rondinone. The meaning behind this art installation is the relationship between "the natural and the artificial" which creates a fascinating disjunction for the viewer. I decided to style Danielle and I in muted colors to complement the desert and contrast the highly saturated "Magic Mountains". The slip dress trend is not a new phenomenon, however I am always a fan of lingerie-like accents. Please enjoy these Candy Land-esque images.

Happy New Year! 
While reflecting on 2016, there were many ups and downs. In this post I highlight my "ups". This year was a year of immense growth and overcoming challenges. I am so thankful for my family and friends who made the best parts of my year so special. My first full year of living in New York has already been a wild ride and yet I know my journey has just begun. I look forward to the many more adventures to come! I wish everyone a tranquil, balanced, exciting, and inspiring 2017. 

May 2017 bring you peace and love.
