This or That

Tonight I decided to skip yoga in favor of staying home and eating breakfast for dinner with my kids. Best choice I've made all day ♡
this picture is REALLY old. :)

Warning: I LOVE bikram yoga and I'm probably going to talk about it a lot.

Cliff May was an architect practicing in California best known and remembered for developing the suburban post-war dream home — the California Ranch House. Also known as "Angie's Dream House" :)

If you have a spare 7.85 million kickin' around (and if you do we need to talk), you can pick up Sydney Pollack's Cliff May Traditional.  From the Huffington Post:
For the first time in thirty years, this Cliff May traditional, built in 1941 is for sale with a listing price of $7.85 million. Sydney Pollack and his architect wife, Claire bought the home in the 1980s and lovingly restored it. 
The Pollack's California shingle-roof cottage features four bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms. Archetypal May qualities are highlighting throughout the home: "monolithic chimneys, thick walls, peg and groove oak floors, an oval dining room, acorn door hinges, and access to the gardens from every room," states the listing. The grounds include a saltwater pool and flora such as giant magnolias, birch and sycamore trees infuse the property.

You can find more information here.
unfortunately there are no pictures of the inside but I read there's a 2 story guest house and I'm kind of looking for a place soooo ... ;)

Andy Warhol

"They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself." Andy Warhol
I read this quote somewhere last weekend and have thought about it everyday since. I wish Andy Warhol could be my life coach .. I desperately need one. Look what he did for Edie Sedgwick :)

Margarita Popsicles

Seriously? I can't think of a better way to celebrate the start of Summer! This recipe from Bon App├ętite couldn’t be any easier either. All you do is take lime flavored ice pops and pour a mixture of tequila and lime juice over them. Finish by gently pressing one side of the popsicle into kosher salt. Done and done!

Or you mix up your own margaritas then freeze them into pops and dip in salt. Emeril Lagassi has an easy recipe for this version.

Hmmm ... is 9:00am too early for a popsicle? ;) Happy Summer!

Leaving On A Jet Plane

Do you ever use airbnb? I haven't officially ... but I do spend a lot of time looking & daydreaming about places I would love to visit. :) This morning I happened to find Patagonia Camp. It's a luxury hotel/camp located in Torres del Paine, Chile. 

The complex is made up of 18 yurts(!) all of which have a view of Lake Toro and the Paine Massif. There is one building that serves as a restaurant, bar and lounge. It looks soooo peaceful. 

What type of daydream vacations do you like to take?

Happy 85th Birthday Marilyn!

And one of my all time favorite quotes ....

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." 

Marilyn Monroe

More Marilyn love ... 


Happy June!

Doesn't this picture make you want to lay down on the warm sand and take a little nap?
