Art Basel Miami Photo Diary

pool with sparkling lights at fountainbleauOne of the gorgeous pools at the Fountainbleau.

bed at fountainbleau
Our bed for the week. We called it The Cloud.

art and apple computer in fountainebleau hotel room
Actually really liked the hotel room art which never happens.

empty plate at lunch
I always clean my plate(s).

lunch coke glass
Lunch on Lincoln Road Mall. It’s the most restaurant populated pedestrian street I’ve been to which is my idea of what every street should be.

biking in miami
We rented bikes from DecoBike most days. Biking around Miami is the best. And hardly anyone else is biking which is even better. (Lots of scooters though! I’d be happy to rent one of those next time).

white walls in maimi
Stopped during a bike along the boardwalk for some photos. Miami is full of white textured walls which is kind of an Instagram dream.

watermelon infused water at fountainebleau
The pool areas at the Fountainbleau were always stocked with fruit infused water. Too pretty and I kind of felt like a fancy fraud taking the picture while people who are used to fruit infused water in their life looked on.

bali cafe downtown miami
Super late dinner at the Bali Cafe in downtown Miami. Super good and we were the only ones there which always rules.

downtown miami
Walking around the waterfront downtown. These moments always make me miss city living.

redbull curates scope booth
The Redbull Curates booth in the Scope tent where Goons was showing.

yachts outside fontainebleau
Turning out of our hotel there were yachts. Lots of yachts. (Vermont dwellers are impressed with yachts.)

miami walls street art graffiti charlie brown
There were so many murals being done during the week (and earlier). Something about it all was really striking.

goons girls streetart wheatpaste
Finishing up his Goon babes.

goons girls ruby street art
If you’re The Other Half you have ask if you want to be thrown up and then they will act like they were going to all along.

metric at vh1 tent
Was super geeked when Metric was the band to play the VH1 party. So much so I think I talked through the whole thing about how excited I was.

daniel johnston show
Daniel Johnston show where I sat on the couch the whole time and wished I knew who he was before showing up. The documentary is on my To Watch list.

Final Note: Do you think I wear my hair in a top knot enough? I knew I did a lot but… that’s kind of crazy. I need some inspiration.


Now that I’ve wished you a happy 2013, proclaimed good intentions for my own 2013, and waxed poetic on the years to come, I think it’s time to put this beginning of the year charade to rest. But not before I make 14 resolutions to carry out by 2014. I hope to complete them throughout the year, and not in a jam-packed rush at the end. As I finish each one, the plan is to highlight the achievement in it’s own post, and update the list here. Wish me luck! And if you’re feeling ambitious, share your resolutions in the comments below. đŸ™‚
