The Clevelander

10th and Ocean in SOBE will be rockin’ again! The Clevelander is opening this week and of course I got the FIRST TV tour!! They’ve added a bar on the ground floor by the pool, then a four-story entertainment complex with a 24-hours sports bar, indoor nightclub, and two levels of ocean front rooms and suites! Then there’s 2 rooftop decks and on C-Level there’s this waterfall thing you can sit under to cool off…love it!!



I recently made my first trip to Costa Rica! I visted an out of this world Hot Springs and Mineral Spa called Tabacon near La Fortuna town at the base of the majestic Arenal Volcano. The rainforest was so lush and amazing, absolutely breathtaking and the hot springs were unbelievable…the water and springs supposedly have healing powers…so I stayed in there all day! lol

Travel Style

Since I’m such a “jet-setter,” it was only appropriate for me to do a segment on travel. I love luggage with 360 wheels, and I never buy bags in black, so I can easily spot my stuff. SHUBI was brought to my attention by a friend in NYC, and are super cute…you can find them at If you want to shop, shubi’s are 15% off (til the end of January 2009) with promo code: DECODRIVE …and shout out to “Michael Antonio Footwear” for providing the fashionable kicks for the Shubi spot! The travel jewels are from Susan Hanover Designs…I actually found them, reading the SPIRIT Magazine on a Southwest flight! She also makes special bracelets as part of JOIN RED, to help fight AIDS in Africa!
