Happy Holidays

Pin It  Happy Holidays my friends! I'm wrapping up today for the rest of this year . I wish you and your loved ones a warm, happy, fun holiday filled with all the tasty treats your belly can handle :)  Thank you for reading and supporting my creative endeavor on this blog, as well as my artistic journey through the art world and the world in general ...... a lot of traveling this year!   It's been an amazing year personally and professionally, and I thank you for all your love and support along the way. I will be taking a break for the holidays, and I'll see you back here in 2014! 

What is Father Christmas called in other languages and in other parts of the world? I found this poster on pinterest and I think it is right for my post here. Next year will do my own:) 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

XOXO,  Lana

Winter Vacation Destination - Miami South Beach

Miami night on Art Deco Ocean Drive 
the 12th floor at our hotel roof top
We stayed at the beautiful and elegant SLS. There are many great hotels in Miami and South Beach and all are located close to museums, shopping and attractions. I can say from my personal experience that almost everything you'll want is within walking distance. We stayed South Beach the week after Art Basel 2013 and our hotel has already booked their New Year's party ..... I think I would love to celebrate with a Latin flavor or a Gatsby style in Miami Beach. 
How is your weekend going so far? Love to hear about your shopping adventures and if all of your Christmas stockings are full.  If you travel to see your family this weekend stay safe and enjoy those precious, happy moments!  Best wishes to all!!!!  xx, Lana

MIAMI BEACH According to my IPhone

Pin It
I think this holiday season is once again another extremely busy one for many different reasons.  Not only in trying to maintain your family happy, also as business owner and creator, in trying to keep my customers happy with happy purchasing experiences!  I would love to spend more time with my blog but it is seems like it gets the short end of the stick most of the time. I think I missed the last week of posting and it almost feels like I'm back to school and forgot my homework or deadline for an assignment!
I would love to share with you this week getaway trip to South Beach MIAMI to celebrate our anniversary. It was so relaxing, exciting, and fun, with exquisite food, amazing weather, lovely company, and extremely luxurious accommodation!
