Home Show

My amazing friend Steve over at Market Place Events invited me to check out the National Home Show this year, 2 months early. I know how much work they put into this and so I had to go check it out. Trade shows and I go way back. I love trade shows, attending them, working at them, all the things you can see and not to mention all the cool people you meet. When I was there yesterday, I ran into my friend Wendy (at Maxwell), my friend Kari, my ex-boyfriend’s brother (ha ha) and of course my friend Steve. The cool thing is that there are always ‘show specials’ and tons of things to buy.

Within 2 minutes of stepping into the Home Show my mom and grandma were both captivated by this super stove cleaning product. It’s British, the demo guy was great at his job and it’s called Astonish. Here is my mom, #1 super consumer – shops without mercy and always on Visa. Hey, she’s my mom what did you expect?

Happy with her first purchase of many more to come

Icon Home Design is a Miami based company that makes outdoor furniture that are all very much my style. They are round, cute, womb like and cozy. These are some of my favorites. This one is perfect for lounging by the pool on a summer day reading a book, playing with a puppy or listening to music. I like.

Since I am a summer baby, I always try to imagine my amazing birthday party week. Something like this would be perfect for a pool side, Miami Vice themed party. Someone get this one for me!

This show is huge so make sure you have a bottle of water, some time and good company with you. While my mom and grandma were looking at teflon pans and miracle honey based moisturizers, I snuck over and checked out the new Toyota Hybrids.

and the designer spaces… This one is Ty Pennington’s kitchen (i think)

then… to my grandma’s favorite part of the show – the Dream Garden!

(more of my favorite Miami sun pods!)

I think my sister would love this…


Checking out the dream gardens, hydra landscaping and all sorts of amazingness.

My mom tells me that her friend in Shanghai has this mini waterfall in his foyer of his mansion except his was cooler because it had Koi swimming around. O_O

I think my mom knows more ballers than I ever will.

Another thing my mom was obsessed with was sharp knives. This one guy demonstrated how amazing his knives were by making this

My mom wasn’t impressed but I was!


Hey! It’s Babo from UglyDolls. Ty bought the vinyl Babo for me last year! And it’s in my living room on the TOP SHELF.

So if you have time this weekend, spend some time with the family and check out the National Home Show 🙂 On til March 1.

Fuze – Love Bottled

Was doing some inspirational research for our upcoming event and found the cutest and most clever ‘stunt marketing’ gig. Simple idea, targeted audience and wham! Straight to my heart.


Somebody get them a bottle! SUCH a cute campaign

CAUGHT! making out in Times Square, NYC

The love story unfolds…
“Miss Green Tea Leaf and Mr. Black Tea Leaf locked eyes at a tea garden in Camelliatown. While being harvested they struck up a conversation and began their romantic courtship later that evening during a drying session. One month later, on a fragrant Spring morning, the city of Camelliatown felt more alive than usual, it was the season of love. Miss Green Tea Leaf was awakened by a knock at her door, only to discover…” (read more)

Jerico Santander

“Art, in our society, has been so perverted that not only has bad art come to be considered good, but even the very perception of what art really is has been lost. In order to be able to speak about the art of our society, it is, therefore, first of all necessary to distinguish art from counterfeit art.” – Tolstoy


Spanish Born illustrator and graphic designer, JericĂł Santander, operates in a very particular universe. His folio is a very professional and beautiful at the same time, highlighting his immense talent. What follows is a perfect compromise between technology and creativity, all flavored with a bit of ingenuity into the mix. This gives us access to the world through compositions in 3D graphics constructed and de-constructed.

To me, art is something you can look at, look at and look at. And each time you look at it, you may see something different. It can trigger different thoughts, it can remind you of something and it may even make you feel something. Take you time, take a good look at it. And explore the icebox where your heart use to be. Enjoy.

iSkin SoloFX


The most gorgeous place to get the most delicious experience for your iPhone has to be none other than iSkin. Say goodbye to the simple, the basic, the pigeons and demand an upgrade! This time around, the one that catches your eye is hard yet soft, body hugging and attention grabbing. She is bold, she is vivacious and the peacock. She protects, never slips and she’s glossy 24/7. Lucky for you – this spring, she’s solo – Solo FX to be exact; the high-gloss bodysuit for your beloved iPhone. iSkin is to iPhones what mascara is to lashes. Iskin is what top coat is to your manicure, what your stilettos are to your strut, and what love does for your complexion that no bronzer can.

We know and love the original Solo; sophisticated, low profile and classic – the black pump if you will. Welcome to the iSkin family and meet the sassy younger sister, Solo FX. Solo FX loves a mango mojito, designer handbags and statement jewelry – the purple suede fringe boot, with a peeptoe. With integrated volume and power button coverage, unobstructed access to all ports, a non-slip surface – the Solo FX says, “Don’t be jealous cuz I’m perfect.” With a clear screen that doubles as a mirror when the iPhone is off, we have to admit she really is all that and more.

Dress up your iPhone this spring in Breeze (translucent blue), Passion (translucent red), Lush (translucent green) and Sunset (translucent orange).

Horoscopes say that the Solo Fx is compatible with the revoClip for solo belt holster (but he is sold separately).

The iSkin solo FX is available now at www.iSkin.com , and retails for $32.99US.
