  Up Up & Away (09/04-06)

When I first moved to Cleveland almost 12 years ago…one of the first big attratctions I attended was the Cleveland Air Show. The afternoon of plane walkers, the Blue Angels, pilots…LOTS of pilots and the amazing acrobatic show still “Wows” me to today!

This Labor Day weekend don’t miss out on the spectator event. The Air Show is a rather affordable, local outing that is fun for everyone…general admission tickets are good for one full day of aviation fun (Saturday, Sunday or Monday). FYI there is no seating, so remember to bring a lawn chair or blanket.

  Wade Oval WOW

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

I got to attend once last year, and this year I plan on trying to live at
Wade Oval Wednesdays each and every Wednesday. Have you ever been?

If not, it is quite the treat that you won’t want to miss. What started out as a small Wednesday evening concert series has grown into a weekly “party in the park.” More than 10,000 visitors each summer bring their families, friends, blankets, and lawn chairs to dance, relax, and enjoy music at WOW! Wade Oval Wednesdays. This one-of-a-kind concert-going experience combines the outdoor charm of Wade Oval University Circle with the excitement of live music. Whether you’re a fan of rock & roll, jazz, folk, or reggae, there’s a concert that’s perfect for you

This week the folks at UCI welcome Carlos Jones and the Plus Band to kick off the summer festivities. Get there early for a great seat, a good place for your picnic basket and plaid blanket and first pick at many of the yummy treats all the area vendors bring to sell. See you at the Oval!

  Guess where?

I love this bench….do you? :)

  Dreaming of ski fashions

Sometimes I wish I wrote a fashion or design blog.

I peruse various national blogs and the inspiration to my real daily work is usually influenced by the next best shoe designer, the art exhibit in Tokyo or that new cafe in Paris.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE, lust, yearn to write about Cleveland…but today I want to take the opportunity to write about something that has recently been on my mind…something that I can’t seem to get enough of, I love the colors, the sick patterns, the techie cuts, it’s all very alpine chic…let’s talk about ski clothes!

I was on the Boston Mills and Brandywine site the other evening, did you know that you can take a lesson (ski or board), rents equipment and get a lift pass for only $39 as part of their Sunday Super Saver promotion? That alone deserves new mittens and fancy boots, don’t you think?

So, I decided to put together that perfect ski-bunny outfit in hopes to hit some “after Christmas Sales” at some of the area ski & sport retailers including Geiger’s (free coupon for ski or snowboard hot wax here!) or Village Snow for these latest in winter aprés fashions.

What do you think? Like my winter fun, make believe outfit? Do you have the perfect puffy-coat you want to recommend? Seen any great Thinsulate® sales lately? I’d love to know where the deals are….fill me in!

Torah Bright Jacket by Roxy. A great base layer zip up from Athleta.Tivoli Boots by Sorel. Bootleg ski pants by North Face. Smith “Catwalk” Sunglasses (the name alone and I want them!) A snug little beanie by Spacecraft. a pair of Burton Profile Mitts..they are guys, I would just buy an Xsmall. :)
