Last week my husband and I went to a Blood, Sweat and Tears concert with friends we’ve known for over 35 years. Yes, Blood, Sweat and Tears’s 50th Anniversary tour. Does that make you feel old? It did me. It was held at a small concert venue that seated 300 people. When we walked in, my hubby said “Good grief. This is a Geezer Fest.” The average age of the audience was at least 60. Yep, I’m a geezer now. But it was one of the most fun evenings I’ve had in a long time.
Anyone who knows Liza Kindred, wearable tech guru and founder of ThirdWaveFashion, a fashion think tank, knows how much she loves the beach. Liza and new husband, Josh Clark, another tech brainiac, were even married on the beach this summer.
“I feel like my whole life is trying to get back to a beach, said Liza. “Everything else is just what’s happening in-between.”
Speaking of “in-between,” check out Liza and Third Wave Fashion’s new print magazine. If Harper’s Bazaar and Popular Mechanics had a baby, it would be swaddled in Third Wave Magazine.

When I was in my 20s, every few months my first husband and I traveled to Mexico, Central America, The Bahamas, or the Virgin Islands. Anywhere we could dig for Mayan artifacts, minerals and crystals and/or scuba dive. I always took a straw hat—so big it almost needed it’s own airline seat—and my pink plastic boombox. I loved that thing! It was the predecessor to ghetto blasters, and had a strap so I could carry it over my shoulder, like a purse.
THANK GOODNESS, I WASN’T A VIRGIN!
This week’s Playlist is from Suelyn Farel, CEO of The Julien Farel Group. You may remember we interviewed her for our Style Inspiration profiles. She’s gorgeous and lights up a room; is married to a to-die-for handsome Frenchman; has a successful business; a home in NYC and one in The Hamptons and two darling daughters. If you were prone to envy another women, Suelyn would be at the top of the list, but I’m telling you… She’s a great girlfriend and the real deal. You can’t help but love her!
WHEN CHOOSING HER PLAYLIST, SUELYN SAID, “MY MUSIC HAS TO POSSESS A SEXY EUROPEAN ‘BEACH PARTY’ FLAIR, WHILE ALSO APPEALING TO OUR SEVEN AND NINE-YEAR OLD GIRLS!”
Because music is such a big part of our lives, 1010 Park Place is asking some of the people we’ve interviewed to list their favorite songs for you to download to your playlist. To kickoff our inaugural Playlist, singer/songwriter, Kat Edmonson has curated some tunes along with where she’d like to listen to them.
“I HAD SO MUCH FUN MAKING THIS PLAYLIST, IMAGINING I WAS HANGING OUT BY THE POOL, IN A BATHING SUIT, WITH SOME KIND OF TROPICAL DRINK!” —KAT EDMONSON
