It’s still salad season and I haven’t done one of these in while. I mean the produce around here is rather crazy at the moment so you have to take advantage. Here are four yummy picks, perfect for even the pickiest of salad eaters. xx

I’m daydreaming of Marrakech on this rainy summer day. Morocco is definitely on my bucket list and if I’m going to daydream, then why not dream high end? The Selman Marrakech seems like a wonderful choice for a daydream.

The hotel opened in The red brick exterior belies the interior design, handled by architect Jacques Garcia, that displays that distinctive French flair.The lobby sets the tone with an eclectic mix: a marble table from Versace’s home mixes with a Tiffany lamp and a grand Turkish chandelier. Traditional archways and mosaic columns give the place a serene and regal vibe.

The sprawling property offers 56 guest rooms and five roomy riads. Antique carpets mix with Napoleon III-inspired chairs and ebony plasterwork. The hotel is unified by a gray and silver color scheme but each room offers a bright burst of color. Zellige-style bathrooms are minimalist and beautifully contrasted by gleaming chrome fixtures.

The spectacular Olympic pool – the longest in Marrakech – is the biggest draw here. The pool is surrounded by luxury four-poster daybeds and towering palms. Surprisingly, the hotel also has a stable of 16 Arabian show ponies. Owner Abdeslam Bennani Smires is a proud rider and offers some of his private stable up to guests. After your ride, luxuriate the numerous treatments available in the Henri Chenot spa.

This one is a bit out there even by my standards but it has become to prevalent to ignore! Cartoon prints are hot, ranging from cheap Mickey Mouse tees to Spongebob by way of Moschino. Cultural kitsch as it might be, when even high end lines like Givenchy are getting in on things, it will likely stick around for more than a season. Admittedly, the bright yellow stuff is a bit beyond my reach but I do really like the subtle Mickey and Bambi prints. Kawaii.

Things I Love


Blame Beyonce. I’m pretty sure I’ve featured surfboards-as-decor here before but they are definitely having a moment. I’ve seen them on shirts, in prints as well as as-is. It’s a wonderful theme for the summer season and would bring that beachy vibe home even in the middle of winter. Approved.
