Feel-Good Tracks

18/05/2014, Costa Rica, Current Affairs, Marni, Music, See by Chloe, Spring Summer 2014

One of the things I dislike about living in New York City is that days go by so fast you’d think the calendar is on crack. I can’t believe it’s Monday tomorrow! It’s gonna be very busy but exciting week nonetheless. I’ll be taping my new series for Conde Nast Entertainment/Teen Vogue plus a handful of events and appointments. Let me share some top tracks on my playlist. I have them all on auto-repeat. I guarantee you these feel-good tracks will uplift your soul.

Christopher Kane Lace Sweatshirt

29/12/2013, Christopher Kane, Costa Rica, Current Affairs, Jenni Kayne

I’m so excited that the Resort collections have finally hit the stores. I picked up this Christopher Kane sweatshirt before leaving NYC… perfect for cool mornings here in Costa Rica. I know it’s been a mild winter back home and to be honest, I’m somewhat dreading the return back. We’re having a fabulous time under the sun for the past few days. I don’t think I’m ready to ditch my Missoni swimming trunks to wear fur again…

Playa Manuel Antonio

28/12/2013, Costa Rica, Missoni, Spring Summer 2014

I have a love-hate relationship with the beach. I hate going to the beach because I’m very out of shape. I’m kind of flabby in the wrong, every wrong places. I really need to take exercise seriously, especially since Summer is just a few months away. On the other hand, I love going to beaches because it’s one of the very few places where one can fully unwind and be totally carefree (ie. you don’t have to bother about clothes, hair, make-up). Simple pleasures as they say.

We spent pretty much the entire afternoon within Playa Manuel Antonio. It’s a lovely area on the Pacific Ocean side of Costa Rica. Had a fabulous, fresh lunch at Marlin restaurant. The lobster and the whole fried fish was absolutely divine.

Frends Zone

27/12/2013, Accessories, Costa Rica, Current Affairs, Equipment, See by Chloe

Have you downloaded Beyonce’s latest album? I bought it last week on iTunes and have been listening to it non-stop with my gold Frends headphones (Frends headphones, a gift from Rebecca Minkoff who collaborated with them. I think it’s amazing what she did — dropped a major album out of NOWHERE and of course, all 17 music videos at the same time. Now that’s groundbreaking! Only Queen Bey could pull that shit off! Most artists, since the time of the dinosaurs, did the usual formula of sending out teasers, releasing a music video throughout a certain time span to promote the album but not Beyonce. My favourite track? Pretty Hurts.

Pura Vida, Costa Rica!

27/12/2013, Costa Rica, Current Affairs

Pura Vida, Costa Rica! It’s time to embark on another adventure! 2013 was another banner year and, for the final stretch, I thought I’d go somewhere new and exciting — Costa Rica! I know I’m a city boy by heart but it’s also refreshing to take the inner nature lover out of me from time to time. I flew to San Jose on Christmas Day with people close to my heart. We’ll spend the next few days exploring some parts of this beautiful country. I’m usually the well-organized, anal-retentive traveler but this time around, I’ve decided to just go and explore, with no game plan whatsoever. All we have is a rented house in the middle of the rain forest. We’ll see where the roads (and my camera) lead us…

It’s exciting, no? In this day and age of high standards and convenience, it’s easy to forget the essence of travel. It’s sad that over the years, we’ve spoiled ourselves with such high standards that we end up stopping ourselves from visiting certain places. I think it’s important to get lost to see what’s out there. The only thing that matters is that you come back alive to share your experiences.
