Harney & Sons Soho with windows by @polarpolarizer

Offering up one last hurrah for the holidays, the sights and smells of evergreen trails through NYC streets. Polar Buranasatit's 'factory festive' windows for Harney and Sons features a 'controlled chaos' (note the mini wooden people hard at work at the bottom and on the right) personifying the hustle and bustle of the holidays. 2019 is picking up pace; are you ready to rumble?

Louis Vuitton, Fifth Avenue, NYC

My mantra of 'memories over merchandise' extends through the last bit of 2018, with a jaunt through Hershey Park and a yurt weekend at Savage River Lodge. Much needed rest and relaxation is welcome, as is the new year! Where 2018 brings healing and repositioning, 2019 is poised to be be a year of success. Cheers to you and your families as the new year approaches. In the mean time, have a look at the ladies of LV and think about your upcoming endeavors for 2019...

Pausing a minute to enjoy the Luminaries at the Winter Garden Theater, childhood memories and morsels of melodrama flash past. So much has changed, yet so much remains the same.

Inside, a recent makeover casts a fresh new light on a traditional lineup of luxury brands. Keep reading to see some snaps...

-WINDOW TO MY WORLD-

Lima, Peru -- White House equivalent

Every country boasts unique foods and cultural customs lesser known to tourists. For me, the thrill of travel invites adventure in discovery. This past weekend's day-cation in Peru includes a Procession of Saint Martin de Porres (on his feast day). Starting at the Parroquia Inmaculada Concepcion, many men lift a shrine with a statue of St. Martin and proceed on a 12+ hour pilgrimage through the town of Callao. Keep reading for a look at the festivities...
