The Secret Things (and a brief tour of Málaga)

Hailee asked me this morning, at oh, 5 a.m. via a quick FB chat if I ever sleep in Spain.

My answer: "not well" ~ which thinking about it, doesn't seem to make good sense. This place is quiet and serene, and all of the stuff that should lend to a person actually having the best sleep of their life. I on the other hand, am finding that without all the distractions, I'm up all night thinking of a million trillion things I want to do and see, and all of the places I want to know. Like, not just "go" - but really know. Spending a month in a place you start to get it's intricacies, and the more time I have here the more I fall in love with it.

I hope you all are enjoying the travel photos, let me know if there's something more you'd like to see!

Today's photos are from two day trips to Málaga: shopping the Atarazanas Market, sipping wine and eating the most delicious tapas, wandering the alley ways and climbing to the top of the Roman Theatre and Gardens - there is so much to this city. It's the home of Picasso and a nominee for the 2016 European Capital of Culture Award.

Shopping the market was one of my favorite moments here. The fish, cheese, olives and produce are the freshest and most delicious anywhere, and you can stop along the little bars in the corridors for drinks and tapas while you shop.

Here, there's street art and little hidden gems absolutely everywhere.

Climbing up through the old Alcazaba (which had free entry on my visit) will land you with this view of the perfect place to dock and stay awhile at the harbour below.

Also! I have to share a few snaps from the weekly beach adventures. Having Michelle here from Paris and giving her the tour of the Costa Del Sol beaches was the highlight of my weekend.

Rock climbing and clam hunting has become a regular routine.  Here's last weeks catch (well at least part of it).

So much love to my new and dear friend Jami for being my guide this past week!

p.s. I write this blog ultimately as a place to capture time, I think. At first, the things that were inspiring me and the work, wares and faces of the fashion and creative industries of New Orleans... then it became a way to share the type of styling work I love to do. I expect it will always be that - in part; however, as I've had this experience in Spain, I'm intending to take new paths here which I'll share more of ...très bientôt.
