New York City 2013: Banksy sells original art incognito


Are you a fan of Banksy? If so, see amazing documentary Banksy Does New York, directed by Chris Moukarbel, which talks about Banksy's experimental one month residency in New York City, where he sets to surprise public every day with new work around the city unannounced.

This fragment talks about one day of the month when he sets up a stall near the Central Park and sells his original work for $60 a piece. In just this one fragment Banksy makes a good point of how art is nothing without attaching a famous name to it. Genius point.

Watch what happens...you'll be blown away.

Miami Beach Vibe: Beach Cruising



Beach cruising in style? Leave your heels in the city when you come to Miami Beach and choose to ride your beach bicycle in flip-flops (see below my favorites) and/or keds. At least that's what the locals do.

Beach cruisers are these bicycles you usually rent at a hotel on a beach. I always get mine at the Shore Club, where we've been staying for the past 4 years. They can cycle in the sand, but I'd prefer to take it along the boardwalk from Miami Beach all the way to the end of the South Beach and do it so that when I reach the other end of the waterfront, I can enjoy a sunset. The sunsets on that end of the waterfront are amazing, and so is the ride!

Ride on and check some of my other bicycling videos here.

These are the flip flops I'm loving this season:
  1. Slim Paisage Flip-Flop from Victoria Secret
  2. Bruce Top

Miami Beach Vibes: A day in the life of Miami Beach visit


Your fashion style definitely changes when you transport yourself from the urban NYC to the beachy Miami and New Yorkers love it. It's a perfect getaway for the New Yorkers, just a 2.5-hour flight away! And we love it when we can finally get rid of the jeans, sweaters and boots and change into our beach gear that we carefully plan for a year in advance. Kicking off summer with the Memorial Day weekend getaway to Miami Beach is a thing to do for the New Yorkers...and would you blame them?

Attention, New York ladies...


NYC hasn't been known to be very family friendly EVER. It's the city for young, ambitious, single people from around the world to come to pursue a career and enjoy the many entertainment perks of the city. However, in the last few years, the city has been warming up to the idea that not everyone wants to move to New Jersey or Connecticut to have a family. So, the city has been trying to accommodate those New Yorkers who do NOT want to leave Manhattan, who still want to enjoy the city but be able to have a family too. One of such neighborhoods is - the Battery Park City where we now reside. One morning I decided to check it out from a perspective of a feature parent-to-be...
