One weekend, I made the long drive to Omaha to see Son Little perform and Jade Bird perform at Reverb Lounge. It was a blast. There must have only been about 20 of us in a very small room. It was the most intimate concert I’ve ever been to. Aaron Earl Livingston (that’s Son Little’s name) is so talented–and it was as if he were talking to us all individually. We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott downtown. I wouldn’t recommend […]

Five Marys Farm in Fort Jones I wore my Nike ACG Boots, pictured […]
I finally made it back to Chicago after moving around a year ago. It was good to be back! The weekend went by super fast, but I still got up to some trouble.

After years and years of visiting Detroit for work, I finally got the chance to give the Motor City a decent run through. I ate and drank so much deliciousness. Here’s what I got up to: Stay at the Aloft Brunch at Grey Ghost Astro Coffee Walk around Corktown, see the old train station Drinks at Hop Cat Dinner at Selden Standard Walk around the downtown shops Drinks at Jolly Pumpkin Brewery Thai food at Takoi Drinks at Batch Brewing […]
Marfa is a great little art town in west Texas. With a population only 1,981, it’s a town where everyone knows your name. I stayed at Hotel Saint George for a week and really enjoyed eating, drinking, art-ing, and getting to know the folks who live there. If you visit, grab a few tacos and a beer to enjoy in the pool at Bar Nadar. You also can’t miss the Prada store in Valentine. It’s an instillation by Elmgreen and Dragset. […]
I recently spent the weekend with some girlfriends in Palm Springs for one of my dearest friend’s 30th birthday. It went by quick and it was a blast. We stayed in an awesome Airbnb, where we lounged by the pool most of the time. One morning, we went to The Parker Hotel to eat at Norma’s and for dinner we had pizza at Birba. As for the city itself, the streets are lined with midcentury modern homes and cool desert colors. There […]

Here are my last images from my New Zealand trip. These were all taken on the way to the airport on the North Island. Get a load of that giant eel in the lake! (see below) Hopefully I’ll see you soon, NZ. What a wonderful, insanely unique country!
When we first landed in New Zealand, we rented a car in Auckland, drove all around the North Island, took the ferry to the South Island, explored there, and eventually took the ferry back north. Throughout our travels, most of the locals told us to avoid Christchurch. The area has been ravaged by several earthquakes and the aftermath is heartbreaking. So many people warned us against it, it peaked our interest. We went, and we loved it. Yes, it was […]
