NTandy Counting Down The Days to Fatherhood on the Court

By |July 22nd, 2013|UNCATEGORIZED|

I was honored to join part of Napper's becoming-a-father Man Day on Saturday.  Napper is a creative genius, style maven (creator and founder of ntandy), and connoisseur of fun. Simple tennis would never suffice.  De Alfonce Tennis was the name of the game - tennis played with badminton racquets and a small nerf ball.  The ...


Wine Tasting Bachelorette Parties in the Santa Ynez Valley

By |June 10th, 2013|UNCATEGORIZED|

Within the span of a month, I spent two weekends at bachelorette parties in one of my absolute favorite places, the Santa Ynez Valley, which never disappoints. Not only is it always stunningly beautiful, but something in the air orchestrates slowing down, breathing deeper AND kicking up your boots! I corralled the ladies to many ...

Glamping at El Capitan

By |April 12th, 2013|UNCATEGORIZED|

I have been dying to visit El Capitan Canyon ever since seeing a tantalizing spread in Sunset Magazine several years ago which showcased romantic pictures of luxury tents with fluffy beds bathed in candlelight and cozy costal cabins with roaring bonfires in front. Romantic pretenses were actually not what finally got me to El Capitan ...


Rustic luxury in the wilderness of the Serengeti

By |April 2nd, 2013|UNCATEGORIZED|

Seduction in the Serengeti. The Mbalageti Serengeti Lodge, located in the Western Corridor of the National Park, is a lodge that is exactly that.  Perched on a hill above the Mbalageti river, and offering breathtaking panoramic views of the Serengeti Plains, the sounds, sights and smells are intoxicatingly tranquil and free from the drone of ...

KITELA LODGE, Karatu, Tanzania For some ungodly reason, the morning after we finished climbing  Kilimanjaro we agreed to a 6AM departure from Arusha and a long drive to the Ngorongoro crater to start our three day Safari.  After a long and exciting day of seeing animals in their natural environment, we made one more stop ...


Be Cocktailing: The Ginger Fro! Better than the best Moscow Mule

By |March 22nd, 2013|UNCATEGORIZED|

On our recent trip to Harbour Island I was delighted by Toby Tyler at The Landing's new cocktail creation "The Ginger Fro!"  Moscow Mules have been my cocktail of choice for some time, but I am frequently disappointed when they are too sweet and lack a kick.  The Ginger Fro, made with Afro Head Ginger ...


The Animals of the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti in Tanzania

By |March 21st, 2013|UNCATEGORIZED|

After conquering Kilimanjaro, we rewarded ourselves with a safari!  The Ngoronogoro crater was formed approximately three million years ago when a volcano exploded and then collapsed on itself, creating a bowl 2000 ft deep and floor covering 100 square miles.  It is a natural enclosure for an extensive variety of wildlife in a high concentration ...


New Favorite Hike in LA – The Ray Miller Trail!

By |March 12th, 2013|UNCATEGORIZED|

Seven days climbing Kilimanjaro made me even more appreciative of how much I value being in nature.  There are several hikes that we frequent in LA, but on my first weekend adjusting back to life at home, I wanted to do something longer, different, and more in the elements.  The Ray Miller loop may be ...
