A Theatrical Season in West Palm Beach

It’s so exciting to be back home in Palm Beach!

There is so much wonderful entertainment going on in the theaters in the area.  Little Foxes now showing at the Dramaworks in West Palm, Born Yesterday is at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, I Will Survive at the PGA Arts Centre, and at the Kravis it’s The King and I.

Treat yourself to a night of theater.

At the Old School Square in Del Ray is Fleetwood Max, a tribute to Fleetwood Mac.

Swoon over these great tunes.

My movie pick of the week is Wonderstruck. A visually engrossing tale with Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams. It’s always fun to see a great film! Check the paper for local movie theaters and their times.

Wonderstruck, now playing in West Palm Beach.

For an evening out, a  personal favorite of mine is heading over to the Polo Lounge at The Colony Hotel to see Raquel Williams on a Saturday night. She has a jazz pianist, a bass player, and it’s a great chance to dance. It always makes for an enjoyable evening, and there are usually surprise guests every Saturday night.

Whether you’re getting all dressed up and going to the theater, or putting together a casual look for the movies, remember that it’s all about style…

Autumn in Asheville

Asheville, North Carolina – a city in the Blue Ridge Mountains! It’s known for its vibrant art scene and historic architecture.

The vast 19th Century Biltmore Estate, America’s largest home, has tours available for those curious to see the 8,000 acre property and it’s Chateau-style mansion.

The Basilica of St. Lawrence is also an amazing landmark, and the detail of the architecture is amazing to behold. Not to be missed!

The downtown Arts District and the River Arts District are bustling with activity. Many former factory buildings now house incredible art studios, and sophisticated restaurants. There are local breweries, and an upbeat art and music scene in the area.

This is the time of year that there is a big Apple Festival! You can try over 40 varieties of apples! It sounds delicious…

Seaport for all Seasons

Newburyport Massachusetts, only 35 minutes from Boston! It is a seaport for all seasons, and a thriving community with unique shopping, fine dining, arts and culture.

It’s the birthplace of the United States Coast Guard! In the spring and summer, you can stroll through downtown while you admire the window boxes and hanging flowers and plants. Don’t forget to check out all the adorable shops.

Enjoy flowers, specialty shops and fun festivals

It’s Nantucket life, but easier to get to, without having to deal with the ferries that take you 30 miles across the sea. The Clipper City Rail Trail & Harborwalk  is only 1.1 miles, and it’s extremely scenic. You can do birding field trips to Plum Island, or even whale watching – it all sounds amazing, for people of all ages!

You can walk or bike this fabulous trail

You don’t want to miss the Custom House Maritime Museum. And in the fall, you can go to the Fall Harvest Fest. During autumn days, don’t be surprised if you see that all the town lampposts have been creatively decorated. In the winter, it’s fun to cross-country ski and snowshoe!

Dining and drinking for a good cause at Harvest Fest

Coming up in October for ten days, it’s Savor Newburyport. There’s a chili cookoff, a craft beer event, and the 2nd annual cocktail and appetizer competition. All of this does sound so delicious, and the best part is, proceeds benefit local charities!

A delicious festival for the whole family

So whether you’re wearing those toasty cashmere sweaters in the brisk sea air of Newburyport Massachusetts, or the lightweight cottons on the South Florida Coast, remember, it’s all about style.

Shop the Newburyport collection from Bonnie Roseman’s BLT – comfort and elegance.

Marfa, A Hidden Art Town in Texas

It’s a magical and mystical place…Marfa, Texas! It’s a small town three hours from El Paso, and about 6 hours from Austin, Texas, in the middle of a vast desert land on the border of the Great Bend National Forest.

There are only around 2,000 residents year-round, but tons of New Yorkers and Angelinos have descended upon this special place. It’s been discovered because of the amazing art foundations, installations and galleries, even a fabulous book store called the Marfa Book Company. The Donald Judd Foundation and the Chinati Foundation are too amazing for words.

Chinati Foundation, Marfa, Texas

Outside of town is a Prada store! Not really…It’s a Prada Marfa store! A total replica in actual size of a real Prada store. However, it’s just an art installation, life-size – it’s such a hoot! Oddly enough, even in this little town, there are more sophisticated restaurants than you can count on two hands, and a delicious grocery store called The Get Go.

Two fabulous Marfa places to see

A private Mexican-style hacienda turned into a hotel is full of treasures! The historical Hotel Paisano: when you step into the lobby, you’ll see an array of memorabilia. You can even see original photos of Rock Hudson, James Dean, and Elizabeth Taylor, taken while they filmed the movie Giant in this little town.

I stayed at The Paisano while touring Texas with my BLT Collection

If you’re lucky enough you might even get to see the Marfa Mystery Lights! It’s a special atmospheric happening in the desert sky.

Marfa Mystery Lights will put a twinkle in your eye

If you do have the time, a must is to venture out to the Cibolo Creek Ranch about 30 miles out of town. It is an old fort built around the same time as The Alamo and has been restored by a wealthy Houstonian and turned into a very exclusive resort. I had the pleasure of staying there. While you’re on the property, you can enjoy amazing views of the Rio Grande and Mexico. On the ground there are magnificant crystal formations everywhere!

Cibolo Creek Ranch near Marfa, Texas
Because Marfa borders the Great Bend National Forest, it’s been found to be the darkest night sky in the country. For you star-gazers, it is absolutely breathtaking on a clear night.
It is a place that you do not want to miss.

So whether you’re wearing those flannel shirts, cowboy boots, leather jackets and sweaters in Marfa, Texas, or wearing those lightweight linens and those cottons down in Southern Florida, it’s all about style.
