Picture this: An umbrella-studded beach on the Italian Riviera. An aerial image of boldly hued life preservers floating placidly in a pool. A pair of llamas donning pink balloons on the surreal salt flats of Bolivia. This is the work of fine-art photographer, Gray Malin. Even if you don’t know him by name, you’ve probably seen his wanderlust-inducing photography. His shots evoke a feeling of beautiful sunny days and unforgettable vacations. They’re an aesthetically pleasing distraction from the chaos of everyday life. To put it plainly, it’s the kind of

We’ll be the first to admit that sometimes the thought of a beach day beats an actual day at the beach. Between temperatures in the triple digits, the occasional sand storm, and not to mention, those hungry seagulls, you can never be too prepared for a seaside trek. But with the coast in our backyard here at Laurel & Wolf HQ, we have plenty of practice in packing the perfect beach bag.

Olive trees mingle with azaleas while sidewalk cafes tantalize tourists with the sweet smell of fresh-baked beignets. Somewhere near Bourbon Street, a jazz band’s deep, throbbing notes can be heard. It’s a mystifying city, one that leaves visitors charmed by its native magic. And as a cultural melting pot, NOLA keeps a creative crowd of residents. Some who happen to have excellent, if not

Though often overshadowed by the drunken merriment and nudity associated with Mardi Gras festivities, the vibrant and bold style of New Orleans is a crowning characteristic of the city’s beloved culture.

It’s been a long, strenuous winter at work so you’ve decided to treat yourself to some of those precious vacation days. After all, you deserve a Spring Break just as much as a student, right? But where do you go in the middle of March when all the ideal destinations are crawling with inebriated college kids?
