One minute Miami-raised philanthropist Sarah Arison is hitting the powdery slopes of Courchevel and the next she’s rubbing elbows with Adrian Grenier and Lady Gaga (um, peanut butter and JEALOUS). As the President of Arison Arts Foundation and the film producer behind Desert Dancer, Sarah is my kind of Girl Boss. And I’d give up pasta for life to raid her Oscar de La Renta filled closet.

Never one to rest on her laurels, the newly engaged to Tom Wilhelm blonde beauty (her mom dotingly calls her “a giant beam of light on the planet”) is passionate about the National YoungArts Foundation, New World Symphony, American Ballet Theatre, Guggenheim and MoMA PS1. And mini ponies. And pygmy goats. And Sour Patch Kids.

Post-Memorial Day Weekend Vibes

May 26th, 2015


{Christian Louboutin Otrot sandals, Citizens of Humanity Emerson jeans}

No picture could better sum up the past three-day weekend: It was an unmitigated party (just like these Louboutins) and I now find myself sprawled on the floor (drowning in a ceaseless sea of emails, laundry, science projects and deadlines WHILE HUNGOVER). Emphasis on the “while hungover” part thus the all caps for added drama and special effects.

While a complete blur, I’m fairly certain I spent the holiday on Fisher Island flanked by my family and closest friends. We spent our days beachside with a big ol’ bucket of ice cold Whispering Angel while the kids plucked starfish, snails and crabs from the sea like little Jacques Cousteaus. One of my favorite pastimes as a child was sifting through the sands of the Jersey Shore so when I see them emulating the same, it makes my heart flutter. 

Aside from reconnecting with my friends, eating spaghetti bolognese (God, I love sinful carbs and miss them so —they’re a panacea for any woe), drinking copious Tito’s with lemonade and teaching the kids about manatees — the highlight began on day one when my son got his cast taken off! Here are some snapshots from our trip to Utopia.

Don’t Mess With This Chic Greek

Gyros, Zeus, ouzo, the Olympics, philosophy, Mykonos, togas — this Greek girl loves all-things Hellenic (especially tzatziki sauce and chicken kebabs. And big fat Greek weddings). So this white draped dress by Miami-based designer Lorie Lester paired with 305-based headband brand Tassel and a Ramona La Rue belt has me feeling all Spartan warrior badass and stuff. LIKE, DON’T MESS WITH ME BECAUSE I WILL FUCK YOUR DAY UP. 

Honestly, clothes are empowering — much like a power suit one wears during interviews or important meetings with the Big Boys. And this entire ensemble has a decidedly goddess Athena feel to it. A little mythology lesson for you: Athena was the embodiment of wisdom, reason and purity. She was often symbolized as an owl — which is where the saying “wise as an owl” stems from. 

And that’s our Greek lesson for the day, pupils. Circling back to what I was saying earlier, this look taps into my inner Greek roots and I looooove that.

Sorry, Supermarket Runs. I’m breaking Up With you

May 19th, 2015


I’ll tell you what…this little piggy won’t be going to the market. Yes, for me, supermarket runs (which I average 2 to 3 per week because I can’t get it together in this arena) are right up there with waterboarding — absolute torture. Let’s just say that I’d rather get a bikini wax (no lie) rather than endure the parking situation, deli-wait situation, bagging my own groceries situation, loading the car in 99-degree weather situation and unloading the trunk situation which is all synonymous with the grueling grocery store run situation. 

Well, no more, Miami! Why? 

Instacart just launched in Miami TODAY (May 19th)! Yep, Instacart is an on-demand grocery service where you can get Whole Foods Market, Costco, Winn-Dixie, BJ’S Wholesale Club and Petco items delivered to your door in as little as one hour. And nope, no membership required for club warehouses. Customers order on the site, iPhone, or Android app and a shopper hand selects and delivers the order. And the service will continue to add stores and zones after opening. 

And I’ve got the hookup for you, kids. Click here for $10 off your first order and 1 month of free deliveries through Instacart Express.

 Cheers to having someone else shop for your groceries!
