It's a fact: Athena Calderone is a curator of all things gorgeous. Her breathtaking home decor, delicious recipes, and eye for style inspired her to create EyeSwoon, a hub for home and food inspiration. Now, It Girl Calderone will be taking us to New York's need-to-know spots and introducing us to the coolest people around.
Funny how sometimes you can have an interpretation of something that can be completely off the mark. This was certainly the case for me personally when I thought of Ibiza. I had this idea that Ibiza was strictly a party town. Over the past few summers, my interpretation has shifted and I now see the absolute beauty Ibiza has to offer with its rocky coastline & wild vegetation — I fell in love with the island so thoroughly that I arranged a two-week holiday for my family this past August.
Our trip was filled with 24-7 togetherness, which is what made the holiday so perfect — no distractions, lots of laughter, fun discoveries, and incredible meals! We operated on a crazy, altered time pattern compared to our normal Brooklyn or Amagansett life. Dinners didn’t begin until 11pm, asleep at 2am regularly, .and awake at — eek! — noon. I suppose we fully embraced and adapted to the Spaniard lifestyle.

We explored adventurous water activities, boating, hippy markets, drumming circles, go karting, hiking, rock climbing, cliff jumping, grotto exploration, soaking in the old city’s charm & architecture, and lost ourselves in some insane Ibizan sunsets.
