Yesterday Shaun, one of our bloggers, touched on the multiple ways we can "splurge" on luxury items. Not all splurges have to be physical goods however. Actress, Penelope Cruz, chooses calories instead of luxury goods. Others love the costly vacation.
For me, the chance to experience a new culture, eat exotic food, and peek into others lives is priceless. My recent trip to Cuba wasn't exactly a luxury trip. It entailed quite a bit of "roughing it". But for most of us, myself included, any overseas travel is a luxury and a big time commitment.
On that note, I wanted to share a few more pictures and a short video from my recent trip to Cuba that I've blogged about in this post and this one. Traveling to Cuba is truly a visual delight. There is so much to look at and take in from the architecture and interesting people to the constant live music and street traffic.

I also had the opportunity to take a few hours of salsa lessons and learned the Cuban-style salsa rueda (or "wheel"), where multiple partners move in a circle and switch mid-dance.

I have a subscription to Air & Space, which is a bimonthly magazine that was first published in 1986 and comes from the Smithsonian. It’s especially relevant this year because this is the 50th Anniversary (1969-2019) of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Neil Armstrong’s first words – as he stepped down onto the soil of Luna were, “One small step for man, one giant step for mankind,” as the whole world watched.
Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not a morning person. This means that every day I get up, fire up the computer for emails, stagger into the kitchen to make a blistering hot, strong 20 oz. mug of coffee and finally, click on New York’s Channel One to check on the weather and/or news while sinking into the sofa and trying to wake up. Ergo: I hate mornings or as Moss Hart once famously said, “Nothing happens before noon, that doesn’t happen after.”
When I first received the confirmation I would be writing for Adea, I was so excited. The brand was founded on principles I appreciate, such as craftsmanship and quality. From my first post back in 2014, we have discussed the latest trends, including belt bags; went back to basics with Adea; offered tips to find the right bra; and traveled across the world.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
