A Perfume Heaven in Barcelona

Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter is a maze of small squares and narrow, sometimes cobbled, streets. Stretching between the Ramblas de Catalunya and Via Laetana, dominated by the cathedral and a basilica, the Gothic Quarter is a treasure trove for any visitor who seeks extraordinary shops, exquisitely designed clothes, bespoke wicker furniture, colorful costume jewelry and just about everything else that smells of individuality and luxury. And talking about smells: On my recent week-long trip to Barcelona, I was rather aimlessly ambling around Plaza del Pi, looking at the paintings of artists who exhibit their works there at weekends. Turning into...

The product line has many more products than we tested. We would suggest checking out the website to consider the right combination for your needs. LBM: How did you get interested in skincare products and get started? Suki: I struggled with skin problems and sensitivities my whole life and the loss of confidence that came with them. I grew up teased and bullied, and of course, felt reluctant to participate fully in life...

Clearly Beautiful ~ a Sculptor’s Vision

Why is it that we respond to certain styles of art more than to other styles? What does it say about us individually, and what does it say about the artist, when a particular work of an artist resonates with our soul, while the work of another artist may leave us cold and unmoved? As a gallery owner, I spend every day surrounded by the beauty created by artists who share an especially joyous and passionate sense of life.  We asked Michael Wilkinson, one of our most popular sculptors, to share his thoughts on Art, on why Art is...

Here are some of the most luxurious resort spas in Scottsdale. Waldorf Astoria...

La Caldea – A Superspa In Andorra

When I made my way to Andorra two weeks ago, I packed sturdy shoes, a rain coat (just in case) and a few light sweaters. It may be the middle of summer, but the tiny country is surrounded by the mighty Pyrenees mountains, some of them snow covered even in August and wedged in between Spain and France. Therefore, I did not expect the sun drenched days of my current home town on Spain´s Costa Blanca, which was my starting point. Hiking in summer and skiing in winter, that’s what Andorra is famous for. I was prepared for long walks...
