LKisStreet: Fashion at Petite Maison


When I think of Monte Carlo, I think: Casinos, no taxes and there is potentially a prince wandering somewhere in my midst (how cool is royalty?!). When I went to Monaco last week, I was not exactly shocked to discover …

LKisShops: The Principality of Monaco Shopping


Throughout this trip to France, I have been experiencing driver’s envy.  Everyone in this part of the world whisks down the narrow streets on fabulous scooters. And while I am too chicken to actually get on one of these slick …

LKisStyle: Mediterranean Moped-Chic


As some of you may be catching on, I have been spending a few days on the Euro side of the pond.  It has been a week filled with rich meals (napolitana pizza, lots of champagne and salade nicoise) sun-drenched …
