Black Tears

Lágrimas Negras (Black Tears) from Bebo & Cigalo. This cd is a classic. Even if you don't speak a word of Spanish, just listen to the music of Cuban pianist Bebo Valdes and the voice of Spanish flamenco cantador Dieguito El Cigala and you will be entranced. This is the perfect cd to play at a cocktail party or when you simply want to relax at home with a glass of wine.

Refined sensuality

Cashmere and silk go together like fries and a shake. They are fine apart, but oh so much better together. Nina Ricci does justice to the two fabrics by combining them to create this sweater that is both sensual and refined at the same time. But be careful of eating too many orders of fries and shakes if you want to keep wearing this one! Your eating and wearing should both be done in moderation.

Frozen Grapes

Ciroc Vodka out of France is quite unusual. It is the first vodka made from French grapes. What makes it even more distinct is that the grapes are allowed to stay on the vines through the first frost. This results in a vodka that is smooth yet has a fruity flavor. But don't just take our word for it. Try it mixed in your favorite martini or for our more discerning connoisseurs, all on its own!

I'm Free

Nike has set our feet free! Well at least it feels that way in these shoes. The Nike Free 5.0 has a one piece seamless upper body that allows the foot to breathe while maintaining an outstanding fit. And while it is truly functional for running, it also has the added benefit of looking great. So the next time you are contemplating what shoe to put on when you are in a hurry, go au naturel.

Unpredictable travels

Life can be unpredictable. And sometimes we like it that way. Especially when it involves a last minute trip to some exotic locale. But before you can worry about what to grab in a hurry, you have to tackle the topic of what to store your stuff in. It’s times like these when we are especially grateful to T. Anthony. Since 1947, T. Anthony has been turning out finely crafted luggage perfect for packing those essential pieces that will see you through the weekend. Our favorite piece is the 22" Wheeled Carry On in red with black trim. Even better, it can be personalized with your initials.
