Hi weekend! I have to say this entire week felt like the weekend because even though I was working by the pool a few hours each day, it’s just not the same as doing a full day of work sitting at a desk. Besides— I was working in the shade and doing my fair skin a favour by not laying in the sun during the hours when the sun is the strongest. Win-win. I’ve been working out every day— which feels amazing— and exploring the towns around here. In fact, I have quite the Hamptons guide coming up for y’all. We have a few friends joining us this weekend, so you know it’s going to be a fun time. We’re kicking it off tonight with sunset drinks at Wolffer Wine Stand. I’m obsessed with their website and graphic design. You have to check it out. Have a great one!

I know, I know. I’m already in the Hamptons. But a girl can dream of a sexy Spanish getaway anyway right? Designed by Lázaro Rosa-Violán, Hotel Cort in Mallorca plays between Scandinavian and nautical styles to create an environment that could just as easily be set in East Hampton as it could in Palma, Mallorca. Personally, I’m looking at the beautiful millwork, the rich hues, the ikat wallpaper and the industrial lighting— I’m sold. Someone take me there right now.

I’m the girl who gets guilt trips from taking time off. The one who’s answering emails in her hotel room in Mexico while her friends are sipping on margaritas by the pool. Call it the bane of the business owner’s existence— I can never really disconnect when I’m traveling. But I love to travel— to switch up my day-to-day and experience new places. It keeps me sane, relaxed(ish) and inspired.
Right now, quick getaways (with access to speedy WiFi) is my jam. If I can combine my vacation with a work trip— even better. So now that I’ve spent the last few days in New York taking meetings and visiting showrooms, I’m off to the Hamptons where I’ll be working poolside and attempting to not check my emails every 3 minutes. On the disconnecting agenda: beach racquets, backgammon, good books, tennis and a little golf. After all, what’s summer for if not to enjoy a lazy afternoon or two?
