Wynwood Art

There’s really no particular reason for sharing this art with you other than it’s long overdue. And, truthfully, we could all use a little gratuitous culture on occasion. All of these images were captured during the Wynwood Art Walk, one of the best ways to indulge in free culture and deliciously tempting food trucks. The next one is coming up on March 10 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Until then, here’s something to get you through the day. Oh, and Happy Leap Day!

   

   

A Very Studded Happy Hour

Alas we meet again on Friday, the most rewarding of all days. This week has found me in a rebellious mood. Could be my innate overwhelming repulsion towards authority. Maybe I’ve just been channeling my inner Joan Jett. Or maybe a girl just needs to feel like a badass every now and then. Whatever the reason, I’ve recently developed an obsession with punk-inspired, spiked, and studded jewelry that’s led me to scour shops and amass a collection of anything that can plausibly cause injury. If you ask me, that’s a hot characteristic in a piece of jewelry and I’ll gladly take two. If your inner vixen is in need of accessorizing, throw on some leather and knock yourself out with a few of my favorites below in today’s Happy Hour.

Miami Fashion Week: March 21 – 24, 2012

So…Miami Fashion Week is right around the corner and, as it turns out, I’ll be there front and center (or as far up close as a press pass buys you) to bring you the latest. I’ll be live-tweeting (@wunderland419), blogging, sharing pics on Instagram (@apalma419), updating on Facebook, and just generally having some sort of social media overdose just to be sure you’re all in the know. So stay tuned and follow me as I venture into this international fashion showcase – if I know Miami, this week will be anything but predictable.

ban.do iPhone Case

Here’s a quickie post between loads of laundry as I fear I’ve been possessed by the ghost of Cuban Abuelas Past. While I cannot sit still for more than two minutes due to the insistent state of dissatisfaction it seems I’ll be feeling until everything’s been given a good scrub with Mistolin, I’ve taken a break to bring you something that made me audibly squeal: the ban.do iPhone case.

Known for its signature hearts and sparkly accessories, ban.do has now added this covet-able phone case to its already too-friggin-cute-for-words-type inventory.

The white plastic case runs for $25 and is designed to fit iPhone 4. You can also receive 15% off your next order by joining their mailing list.

 

 

Handbag Happy Hour

It’s Friday, people! And while I realize it’s hardly even lunch time, I’m of the philosophy that it’s five o’clock somewhere. You’ve worked hard, you’ve survived the week, and now you’ve earned the right to treat yourself to a little happy hour therapy. And while I’m not necessarily encouraging drinking at your desk out of your coffee mug (except if you’re in catering, in which case, by all means, pop that bottle and pour!), I do support the idea of a little well-deserved indulgence. Without further ado, I bring you Friday Happy Hour.  Every Friday, I will post something easy on the eyes (and the wallet) to celebrate the end of the week.

Today, let us delight in Handbags. Here are a few of my recent favorites, all brightly making way for spring:
