Break Bread @ Think Tank

The exhibit has ended and hopefully will be up somewhere else soon (LACMA? MOCA? Come on!) I went to the Drake Valentine’s Day Party and it was a lot of fun. In case you haven’t heard there’s a cake maze (not really a maze but a few small rooms) and we even got to decorate our own cakes! Mine said fuck love since it was Valentine’s Day themed. 🙂

Loved all the detailed, delicious looking pieces by Scott Hove.

Check it out below!

  
  

Ace Hotel NYC            

I adore all the Ace Hotels I’ve been to. Their attention to detail is just so refreshing and they truly serve their clientele.

A few of my favorites pictured below:

  • FRED Water (refillable bottles that fit in your pocket)
  • Rudy’s Barbershop Toiletries
  • The best room service (Charcuterie and Chicken Salad on a bed of lettuce)

  
  

Etsy Map Chalkboard

I could spend hours upon hours perusing etsy and purchasing all kinds of things I want but don’t need. I’ve been eyeing this chalkboard from dirstastudio for YEARS and finally took the plunge when I saw it comes in green. Just like elementary school. My obsession with maps and globes is a bit excessive, but how else am I going to keep track of past, current and future travels?

Wall Hangings and Art

While I have been purging my apartment (anyone need dining chairs or a tv?!) I’ve been looking at a lot of macrame wall hangings and absolutely adore them. I always think “I can do that!” But am I really?

But on another note I stumbled upon this gorgeous piece at a garage sale for $20. The lady bought it in Ecuador.

Couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.

I also just purchased a gorgeous photo of Iceland from 20×200 . How stunning is it?! My walls are finally coming together!

Murakami @ Gagosian NYC

I was able to check out the Murakami Exhibit at Gagosian on it’s last day in NYC. The sculptures were my favorite pieces, namely the silver piece entitled Invoking the Vitality of a Universe Beyond Imagination. Murakami seems best known for his work with Kanye West and Louis Vuitton, but I think his personal works are clearly more extensive.

Robolights Art Installation / Holiday Lights – Palm Springs

IMG_6362IMG_6406 IMG_6367 IMG_6351 IMG_6388

This past weekend I visited the Robolights art installation in Palm Springs. It was mind blowing – these photos really don’t do it justice. It reminded me of a Christmas haunted house. The artist Kenny Irwin Jr. created a wonderland filled with robots, lights, and music. Using anything from pool filters, microwaves, toilets and surge protectors the exhibit was larger than life in his 2 acre backyard. It’s 100% worth the day or night trip from Los Angeles.

Robolights is open 4- 9 PM Rain or Shine til 1.6.15.
