Father’s Day Gift Ideas

In preparation of Father’s Day, we decided to do a series of posts on gift ideas. Here is the first in the series – the Diesel ‘Mr. Daddy 2.0′ Chronograph Bracelet Watch, covering multiple time zones. 

A gigantic, statement-making watch boasts analog time for four time zones in a rugged, military-inspired design.


Price – $375. Available at a number of retailers including Nordstrom. 

Are you bold enough?

The 2015 collections emphasized prints and colors for men! What a great idea. Question is – are you (is your man) bold enough to sport the prints? Shirts featured here are by Etro, Givenchy and Salvatore Ferragamo – high fashion and pricey. However, you don’t have to pay exuberant prices to add a little splash and a little floral to your look.  Stone Rose to the rescue. Check,our these fantastic “Bold & Beautiful” shirts by Miami based duo Shai Medalsy & Jonathan Sharvit. Stone Rose shirts are available online (click here) or at various retailers including Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack.

Now for some of Sage’s fav Stone Rose shirts……




I need this tank to get me through the Insanity workouts! Have you tried them? We are fortunate to have an insanity trained trainer – wow! They are tough but extremely rewarding. That being said, there are many a times I want to give up, but I don’t! The only way to get results is good ol’ fashioned hard work!

The Waldorf Astoria

I recently got back from a quick 24 your trip to The Windy City – Chicago! Not only was it windy, there were snow flurries in Spring!  Unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to explore the city, but I did get the opportunity to experience the Waldorf Astoria Chicago  Hotel. It’s gorgeous, the rooms are huge and it even has a lap pool. The spa area is very tranquil and the staff very friendly. BTW, this is a no-tipping hotel – never heard of that in the U.S.!!!!

Here are some pictures of the hotel, the room and the surroundings. For my fashionistas – Saint Laurent is located on the ground floor (24 hours was definitely enough time for a sneaky peak at the new collection).

                                           Highly recommend the Waldorf. Information about the hotel is available here.

For my little fashionables

i came across this awesome site looking for shoes for my little shoe & handbag loving 2 year old nice.  Since she has her eye on my Valentinos, I decided to find her a pair too…..how awesome are these?


Little Miss Az has more to explore…let’s not forget the young fashionisto! 

How about some H (for Hermes??? Lol) shoes?


 And there’s more – headbands, room decor and party accessories. Be sure to check out Little Miss AZ!  

Sunshine Baby

Absolutely! I am one of those people who carries sunglasses year round – hey, you never know when you are going to need them, and not just to protect your eyes! Here’s an example – my dear friend J and I recently had to enlist our sunglasses to go “incognito” for another friend’s blind date. It was 6 pm, we were in a bar, and yes, the sunglasses stayed on! Lol. To our defense we were at a rooftop bar with the sun setting! Just thinking about that night is making me chuckle.

I digress. Back to the sunshine post.

I have had my eye on these beautiful Celine sunglasses for a while now, but at over $400 a pop, I just couldn’t justify it.

So you can imagine my absolute excitement when I spotted these gorgeous H&M sunnies for $7.95 – yes, 7.95 (available here). I didn’t wait to purchase a couple of pairs, and numerous people have complemented me on my “Celine’s”  #missionimpossible to #missionaccomplished.
