Prickly Heat

Written by Rebecca Christian

I'm not a huge fan of the desert landscape. Actually, it's the heat—no matter how dry—that makes me break out in hives. But, I'm loving the prickly presence of cactus motifs cropping up around town. Here are a few that got under my skin—in a good way!

We stopped in our tracks for these Prickly Pair chairs at ICFF. Their young designer,Valentina Gonzales Wohlers, was born in the late 1970s in Mexico City, but now lives in London.

Ciao Bella

But in the end, what better way to combat the summer sun than a big bowl of sorbet??? Ciao Bella's new flavor's surprisingly sweet,  truly delicious, and fat free. I say: dish it out!
