On a cloudy day in late August we visited Storm King Art Center, a stunning park of rolling hills and wide vistas marked by some of the grandest modern sculpture of the 20th and 21st century. The marriage of clean lines of industrial steel with the green, rolling hills of Dutchess County is a surprising and majestic match made in heaven. Here are some shots to get you inspired.

The other day I went to a Morning Vinyasa class with Lulu at Body Actualized, a fun little studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn. It was so nice to practice under their skylights and on their wide plank hard wood floors. Amazing how you can truly find people practicing yoga, moving their bodies, minds and spirits, all over the world.

Yesterday we went to visit my friend Dale & Evan's new coffee shop in Hoboken, bwe kafe. It is a really adorable, stylish spot on Washington Avenue in Hoboken that has my absolute favourite coffee - La Colombe. That stuff is delicious. The iced latte was to die for. And the place is really styled out with beautiful decor from their families travels to Haiti, Thailand and Japan, which is complimented by some of my favourite pieces from my parents' shops British Home Emporium and BHE Studio. Check out some shots below!

La Colombe coffee: heaven in a cup.

I'm turning 30 in December, but since I won't be here then, my wonderful mother threw me birthday party in August so I could celebrate with those nearest and dearest to me on this side of the Great Pond. Here are some shots...
