COMME des GARCONS welcomes the return of their Series 4 Cologne, packaged in the familiarly oversized 500ml Splash bottles. The series consists of three different scents, including Anbar (Arabic for amber), Citrico (Spanish for citrus), and Vettiveru (Asian term for vetiver). All three offer an interesting array of scents, perfect for 2011. My personal favorite (and next purchase) is the exotic and sexy scent of Anbar.

The island-loving jet set of Europe now has a new Mallorca hideaway. Cap Rocat, on a protected promontory on the southern flank of the Bay of Palma, is a 19th-century military fortress that has been converted into one of the region’s more remarkable hotels. Twenty minutes from Palma, the sprawling structure is almost completely buried and all but imperceptible from both land and sea. Only the canopies of the lounges on the terrace are visible on the horizon. The entire fortress has been converted into a boutique hotel with 24 luxury rooms and maintains 2 kilometers of private coastline. Much of the detail of the fort was retained and restored in order to preserve the heritage of the place. The former shooting pads were converted into suites, each with their own private patio and terraces, and the fortress’ former kitchen has been converted to a private kitchen exclusively for wine tastings and cooking lessons. Get some sun...BOOK IT NOW!

Finally got this book today by Nick Knight. It was one of the main inspirations for my shoot titled "White Heat" back in 2008. It starred model Brandon Mills and was styled by Nathan Schorr. This book is a classic and I love the raw quality and style to it. A must have for any library.


New online decor mag! Looking good...check it out:

Can't believe its already December! This month is always crazy, not just because of the holiday engagements, shopping and school finals, but because its the last month of the year to wrap it all up! Its the end of 2010 and people are rushing to get things accomplished this year. I know I am. Its just good to start 2011 on a fresh, clean slate...with new and exciting projects. No layovers, jet lag and exhaustion...just a great arrival. So this month on RAZ, we cozy up next to the fire to the incredible heaven of a store that is ABC Home, a first look at my new "business" cards, RAZ readers 2010 wishlist, and my personal dreamlist of everything gorgeous spotted in 2010. So stay tuned and get it going on while you still have time...cause its all about the power of NOW!
