It’s summertime and I didn’t really want to keep carrying my leather brown, blue and black bags to work with my laptop or iPad, camera and some numerous other stuff that i can’t live without so i went shopping online and off line for the perfect canvas with leather handle combination and had the best time. I bought myself a Filson bag from Steven Alan on Franklin st in Tribeca but i’m still looking for the perfect bag. Here’s a list:
Where to Stay and Eat in: Tulum & Playa Del Carmen St. Barths & Anguilla
and some Miami too.
Tulum & Playa Del Carmen Mexica, Playa Del Carmen and Tulum:
On the Caribbean east-coast of Mexico, a short 3.5 hours flight from NYC that lands in Cancun airport. Rent a car and drive 30 minutes south to Playa Del Carmen, which is ideal for chic and hip partying for New Years Eve and beyond. Hip hotels to stay in are the sister boutique hotels Deseo and Básico. Once you get partying out of your system drive down to calm and secluded Tulum and stay in one of the small bohemian hotels on the beach. Most of the time you will have the whole beach for yourself!!
Cafe Gitane: Great French and Moroccan plates especially the Cous-Cous
Le Pain Quotidien: This Belgian bakery is perfect for a healthy, yet flavorful meal. Try one of their European style tartines or simply indulge in their many freshly baked pastries. A piece of baguette with some Belgian dark chocolate spread is a must!
