Why not Miami?

Yes! this is also a lifestyle blog and the topic for today is Star Island. A man-made island on Miami  beach. Now before you start  laughing at the hype over a man-man island, you love pretty dresses, right ? You adore architecture, beautiful scenery, good music, and well prepared meals? All man made darls!! Every gift comes from the higher power. So we can only celebrate and congratulate! Happiness begets more happiness.

Star island is an oval shaped paradise . And get this ,uber! mega!, mega! mega stars are the main residents of Star Island. It's the south east mecca of the rich &famous. P. Diddy ,Shaquille O'Neal, Madonna, Rosie O'Donnell, billionaire, Phillip Frost and real estate investor, Thomas Kramer own homes on Star Island. Thomas Kramer's billion dollar pad was recently featured on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Possible sugar daddy to Kim Zolciak. Publicly she denies any intimate relationship with Kramer, but let's not forget , she did the same, with Big Poppa!

This is an exclusive island.Only accessible by a single bridge and it consists of only 32 properties! So, unless someone is selling a home, a "Dear Lord!, Please I want to live on Star Island " prayer is in order. It is completely understandable why celebrities flock to Star Island, it is exclusive.  This is privacy within privacy.

If you remember, Rhianna and Chris Brown briefly reunited at P.Diddy's oceanfront pad and allegedly got married in an effort to mend their very public ruffle.

 I mentioned Paulina Rubio's residence on Star Island and voila!!!! I want this house too . And its best feature, the outdoor shower! Barcelona here we come! This is such a spacious pad. Simply yum !Everything about this house is awesome.

$15 million in the bank is the tune you need to sing to own a property at Star Island. whoa!  I can't get Paulina Rubio's residence out of my head. I adore both of her pads. The "H" room. Yes, we all need an "H" room in our homes. Equipped with wide open spaces; very tall ceilings  which gives one a sense of living in an unorthodox mansion. I love this. I have seen real estate moguls turn a warehouse to a home. I have seen newspapers used as a wallpaper. Some dyed, others not. I call this the goodies in creativity.  There is truly no limit in the art world. But wait. The world is art.

Back to  Paulina Rubio's home in Barcelona!!!I adore the bridge feature of this home. It signifies unity. Sort of reminds me of Mexican painter, Frida Khalo's mansion  in  Obregon Mexico , constructed by architect, Juan O'Gorman . The home also had a bridge linking Frida and fellow painter/husband , Diego Rivera to their respective residences. I found this quality deeply moving . It's signifies truth and independence.

Enjoy fashionistas. Along with looking good, it pays HUGE to have a comfortable home, preferably your dream house. This is ours: Paulina's bi-coastal manses and of course Frida Khalo's home in Obregon Mexico!

I have a love for the unconventional , yet functional and surprisingly practical.
