Art Basel 2014

Miami City Lights

What an eventful week!

First and foremost, it’s December! Whaaaat?! I know! It’s so crazy how this year flew by! Usually around this time of year I ask myself, what did I do last year for Christmas? Almost always, I can never quite remember. This time, I remembered it perfectly. Either my memory is getting better (which I highly doubt) or this year indeed went Adios in a blink of an eye.

My favorite part about the month of December besides Christmas and New Year’s is, of course, all the Holiday festivities prior. Whether it’s the so-called “Friendsgiving,” your company’s holiday fete or just an excuse to get together with your closest friends, drink wine and watch Christmas movies, December is the month to indulge in everything and anything! Besides eggnog, ugh, I dislike it very much so (Don’t judge me!).

Anyways, aside from all that fun, here in Miami we have the acclaimed Art Basel. Every year, over 70,000 people from all over the world come down to see the well-known international galleries and artists show their work. The event usually lasts 3-4 days and there is plenty to see. So many gorgeous sculptures, paintings, photography, the list goes on and on. The artists are indeed brilliant.

I just came back from an amazing mini getaway! Chris and I took a quick trip to Los Angeles last week to celebrate our two year anniversary and attend my good friend, Karen’s gorgeous wedding. Karen and I have been friends since we were 14-years-old and I was so happy to be part of such a wonderful celebration. Granted, her wedding did fall on the exact day of our anniversary, November 22, but we didn’t mind sharing that special day. Besides, Chris and I had our own memorable festivity a few days before.

Chris is a hopeless romantic. He loves surprising me and doing cute little things on our anniversary and often times even my birthday! So we took one day to ourselves and spent some quality time exploring LA. Our day began with an amazing breakfast at a place called The Waffle in Hollywood. We shared this heavenly red velvet waffle served with creamed cheese frosting. My mouth is watering just thinking about this…
