Here’s some background on this amazing line… Inspired by the beautiful beaches of the Hamptons, founders Grant Wilfley and Salvatore Piazzolla created Hampton Sun, a complete line of luxury sun care, skincare and fragrance products that erases the line between sun care and skincare.  A modern formulation with care to every detail of the line’s creation and execution.

This perfect  two-in-one combination makes it the must-have protection for your next dip in the sun, and it turns out that it will work just as well on your favorite beaches too!

Monkey Business in Palm Beach

Who knew? There are only two gravestones in the whole of Palm Beach Island, one of a dog and one of a monkey.

Buried next to each other are Laddie, the dog of socialites Rose and Morton Sachs and Johnnie Brown, Addison Mizner‘s spider monkey.

Mr. Mizner adored Johnnie Brown and would never go anywhere without him. At his passing Mr. Mizner was heartbroken and wanted to keep Johnnie Brown close, so he buried him in Piazza Torlonia just behind his Via Mizner house, today the location of Pizza al Fresco.

They must have really loved each other, as some of the employees at Pizza al Fresco swear they see the monkey ‘s ghost at night wandering, looking for his human companion, but I bet you that the poor thing is only trying to catch one of their deliciuos pizzas!

Staff Picks by Stephen: Hampton Sun

Our In-house Experts Describe what Makes them Gush Most

It’s the best smelling, non-sticky sun protection, my skin just loves it. The sunblock vanishes before my very eyes and leaves no residue. It’s a smart sun block too, the idea is not only to protect you, but to protect the environment too with its eco-friendly package. A nice way to do your skin and the planet a healthy favor.

Hot on the Beach: 100 Montaditios

Want to spend an evening like a Miami Beach local?  Then save your Wednesdays for Happy Hour at 100 Montaditos. With their famous $1 Wednesday’s, who wouldn’t like to wind-down with a $2 glass of sangria and a $1 montadito*?

* spanish sandwich
100 montaditos

100 Montaditos on Lincoln Road is just one of many locations.

The menu is simple, yet has an array of choices for their Wednesday specials. They have 100 montaditos to choose from, all with different fillings, a few salad choices, delicious fries, Spanish beers, wines and sangrias.

The staff is constantly busy, but are friendly and try their best to make you feel at home. If they’re not running around, they’re dancing by the front door laughing with other customers who are waiting to be seated.

But the best feature about 100 Montaditos is the simplicity of it all. Bring friends from far and wide to experience an evening like a local at very reasonably priced meals, and it’s only few blocks from Babalu Miami.
