Well, kids, I’m off to Iceland. It’s one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. JBD’s future creative content will include the Blue Lagoon, the Northern Lights, a glacial hike, small plane rides to big mother nature moments, live concert shenanigans in below zero temps, and a slew of interviews with Icelandic designers. Have a wonderful week!
Our brains are wired to find patterns. From my balcony in Miami, I spotted a sea of man-made connectivity woven within nature’s course.

Just yesterday, it snowed in New York City. I wore a winter cap, wool coat and tall boots. Imagine the shock of my wardrobe when I dug up pairs of sandals and a few sleeveless dresses late last night. I’m jetting to Miami on behalf of my day job, looking toward the light of the sun. I wonder if it will be warm enough to take a dip in the sea?

What are your weekend plans? Going anywhere? I’m staying put in Brooklyn all weekend long, planning to live a version of a Parisian day I had last week. This will include hitting up a handful of bookstores and listening to live music. While I was in Paris, I perused poetry on the Bagnolet (aka a street in the 20th arrondissement) and wandered into La Flèche d’Or, a beloved music venue known for showcasing upcoming indie and electronic artists.
Get out there, whether solo or with your party people. Whether in Paris or your hometown. Get out there and live. Cheers for a weekend full of life.

Street affairs in Mayfair…
Who doesn’t enjoy a weekend in the sun and surf? Throw in a wedding with a spectacular circle of people and you’ve got yourself something pretty good. My first go around of sharing shots snapped on an iPhone went over so well I thought I’d give you a little bit more. Cheers to my cousin, Sean, and his beautiful wife, Gloria! Love is all around.

This past weekend, I spent every single second under the sun and stars of Montauk with my most favorite people in the whole wide world. With several generations of family gathered around this special place, we celebrated the first of my dozens of cousins to tie the knot! Life is good when days are devoted to the sand and waves of Gurneys Resort & Spa and Ditch Plains Beach. If you have learned anything from JBD, I hope it is to ENJOY LIFE.

I cruised up to Cape Cod last weekend for sand, surf and time well spent with my best friends. What a city escape. Quiet blue skies, crashing waves, good wine, dinner parties at home and sunset cocktails on a Woods Hole dock overlooking the Elizabeth Islands.
We walked to Falmouth’s Surf Drive Beach, kayaked Old Silver Beach, and took an easy ride into town.
Just when you think the day can’t get any better on Cape Cod, the view keeps happening well into the evening.
