CREATIVE BLOCKS

  Sucks so much to be in a block. It’s like you know that you’re a creative person but there’s been no inspiration for months. All your mind is saying is create, create create, but you’re staring at a blank canvas and your arm doesn’t […]

ST-GERMAIN ON THE BRAINNNN.

@stgermaindrinks pool side aperitif at the @mondrianhotels in Miami happened and it was hosted by my beautiful friend Laura. Poolside at the Mondrian? Perfect ambiance to enjoy the classic St-Germain cocktail. It’s a bubbly and refreshing drink that consists of brut champagne, St-Germaine, topped with sparkling water. Every time I feel the fizzies on my tongue, it’s like instantaneous satisfaction. St-Germain liquor is made from elderflowers, and has a heavenly taste of honeydew melon, grapefruit, and pear. Enjoying this drink next to the pool with the incredible view of Miami was just what I needed on a Tuesday afternoon. Don’t get it twisted, just because we’re drinking¬† it with champagne doesn’t mean it’s a frou-frou liquor. In fact, St. Germain is super versatile and can be used to put a twist on an old fashion, or even add to a beer for extra flavor. So next time you’re feeling indecisive at the bar, try the St-Germaine cocktail.

ORLANDO BOUND

I traveled to Orlando, FL for Father’s Day to visit my dear parents. I was really excited to drive there because the open road gives me time to let my brain release itself into random thought, which is therapeutic for me. I also really enjoy […]

MAISON ET OBJETS MIAMI 2016

It’s funny how life works out sometimes. You never know who you’re going to meet, and what opportunities can come from them. I met two women from Colombia who were working at the Maison & Objet show here in Miami. I spoke with them about things to do here and, recommended a few places for them to check out. I was so honored when they invited me as their guest to explore the show, and see the exhibits being presented there. I had no idea what to expect, and found myself in interior design wonderland! Maison & Objet is a show that brings together interior designers, architects, and property developers from all over the world to showcase the newest designs, trends, and textiles for homes and businesses. As I walked past all the individual booths, I noticed how some people blend into their space as if they were also on display. I found similarities between interior and fashion design like statement pieces, one can wear one to spruce up your look, or have one hanging in your home.¬† Maison & Objet Summit gave me a different perspective about how a piece of furniture can not only be a functional item, but also a work of art in your home.¬† Carlos Motta, Brazilian wood furniture designer speaks of his creative process here: https://soundcloud.com/cheriepickett/maison-objet-americas-carlos
