Tales from Ticino | La Dolce Vita in Lugano

Tales from Ticino | La Dolce Vita in Lugano

Lazy meandering days by the lake. Balmy, temperate weather practically year round. Lingering lunches in rustic grottos where earthy fare is languidly served alongside countless glasses of local Merlot (though not a soul is counting). Beautiful, well-dressed throngs of residents who smile an inordinate amount of the time and almost seem to sway with an...

LivingWells Recommends | Farmhouse Inn

One of the most popular misconceptions about a globetrotting life is that it is always glamorous. Not only is such an assumption misguided, it is naïve at best. But every once in a while on a globetrotter’s journey, one comes across an experience or place that stands so far apart from the norm that it...
Out on the Road Spain | Costa del Sol

Out on the Road Spain | Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol literally means “Coast of the Sun”, a name which feels quite fitting after spending any time in Málaga, Marbella and Torremolinos, the most popular destinations in this sun-soaked paradise that might best be described as Spain’s answer to Côte d’Azur. Noted for its temperate climate year-round, Andalusian charms and glamorous inhabitants, the...
Kauai's Poipu Beach: Do You Know the Way to Paradise?

Kauai’s Poipu Beach: Do You Know the Way to Paradise?

Paradise may well mean many things to many people, but there are a few places about which there can be near universal agreement on granting such a designation and by my estimation Poipu Beach would almost certainly have to be one of them. And that is coming from someone who readily confesses to not being...

Order it like Beckham: David Beckham Gives US Debut to One of Scotland’s Oldest Treasures

David Beckham’s name is synonymous with many things. Football, or soccer as it is known on this side of the pond, is, of course, one of them. High style, as demonstrated by his frequent ranking as one of the world’s best dressed celebrities, is another. And, underwear, as evidenced by his ubiquitous and much commented...

Located just steps away from Harrods, Harvey...

Hot Property | The Jade Hotel

With the holidays fast approaching, there isn’t a more romantic time to visit New York City. The Jade Hotel located in Greenwich Village cuts through the chaos of honking cabs and the electrifying, if unceasing, buzz of the city.

Hot Property | Amilla Fushi

Apparently jolly old Saint Nick won’t be the only one bringing gifts next month. December 2014 also marks the highly anticipated arrival of the Amilla Fushii Resort. Located in the heart of the Maldives Islands on Baa Atoll, one of 26 natural atolls in the Indian Ocean, the new 71-room luxury resort promises, not just...

Day 12 -13 | LivingWells California Road Trip – San Diego, Part 2

  In keeping with my plan to explore the previously unexplored, the Southern California leg of the LivingWells California road trip ended with two relatively lazy days in two oceanfront properties that had heretofore been mere points on a map to me. I, of course, already knew the chic seaside community that is La Jolla, an...

Day 10 – 11 | LivingWells California – San Diego, Part 1

Day 10 of the LivingWells California adventure began with an hour and a half drive from Palm Springs to the Rancho Bernardo Inn, which is located in the picturesquely suburban northern climes of San Diego County. Fittingly, the timing of my arrival coincided with the one-year anniversary of Rancho Bernardo’s Mediterranean-themed Avant Kitchen helmed by...
LivingWells California Road Trip – Palm Springs

LivingWells California Road Trip – Palm Springs

Spending a good part of Day 8 making my way out of Los Angeles made arriving in the leisurely environs of Palm Springs even more of a treat on what I’m calling “the desert” leg of this adventure. Even though Palm Springs is not a place that is unfamiliar to me, I remain just the...

Tani | The Luxury Beneath

Tani | The Luxury Beneath

From the time I was a little boy, I recall my grandmother telling me that “A man isn’t well dressed unless he’s dressed well from head to toe.” And by ‘head to toe’ she was referring to every article of clothing on my person, whether it was seen or not seen. Failing to meet this...
