Sea Turtle Mosaic Project made by Custom Mosaics via Connie Williams for use by 360 Magazine

CUSTOM MOSAICS BY CONNIE

Custom Mosaics, which Connie Williams founded in 2012, focuses on customizing mosaics to each customer’s specifications. Each mosaic made from Custom Mosaic is unique and “One of a kind,” perfectly matching every client’s personality.

After moving to the coast (Near Gulf Shores, AL), Connie and her husband were not able to find the perfect sea turtle for the kitchen and bath of their new house. Therefore, under the influence of her mom who was a Ceramic teacher for most of Connie’s life, she decided to use some of her basic ceramic skills to make and install the “Sea Turtles” by herself which surprisingly played a huge part in the selling of the home. In the end, Connie decided to go into the “Sea Turtle” business, turning the marine organisms into mosaics to bring the “AT THE BEACH” feel. 

Although Connie has made many mosaics close to the “Sea Turtle” one, the “Sea Turtle” shower project has been the most popular mosaic so far with the overall goal of making people feel like they are actually among sea life. The shower that the “Sea Turtle” is in started as a 5-foot garden tub and was replaced with a 5-foot shower. The mosaic is the focal piece of the shower and is 20” tall by 32” wide. Every mosaic piece was hand cut from ceramic clay by Connie, starting with a 25-pound block of clay. 

For a complete project, Connie would always make many “filler” tiles at a time and try to keep all different colors in stock. As for the focal pieces, such as sea turtles, tropical fish, etc, she tries to keep most of those made and in stock as well so shecan directly pull the focal piece the client wants and start their one-of-a-kind mosaic. Customers would always be involved as much as possible during the whole project to ensure they could get the most satisfactory design. Meanwhile, The installation process is also accessible by simply adding mortar to the wall, pressing mosaic on and letting them dry and grout. 

Besides the regular business running, Connie makes several pieces every year and donates for auctions with organizations such as Cancer Research, Autism and several different Dog Rescue groups. She always feels wonderful and proud after seeing the pieces raise money for these groups. Last year, the piece of a surfboard-shaped mosaic with a sea turtle raised over 2,000.00 for one of the groups alone.

KANSAS CITY MISSOURI

Looking for a comfortable getaway that invites you to a new world of exploration and hospitality? Try a Midwestern vacation that offers finger-licking, and lip-smacking barbecue, all while listening to authentic jazz next to an expansive river. Barbecue and jazz are just a couple of the amenities Kansas City, Missouri (population: 475,000) has to offer. Join the 360 Magazine Team as they learn the history of this metro city and visit the top picks for lodging, exploration and most certainly, indulging.

Whether you are ready to take a risk or simply relax, the Ameristar Casino Hotel, housing 184 rooms, is an excellent choice. On the first day in Kansas City, 360 stayed at the hotel, which overlooks the mighty Missouri River, tying together an elegant vibe with a western saloon twist.

Built in 1997 and only ten miles away from downtown Kansas City and Arrowhead Stadium, the 183-acre Ameristar includes complimentary valet parking, as well as an on-site brewery, amazing eateries with the finest chefs, and a spectacular casino floor. Got that gambling itch? Be a winner at one of the largest casinos in the nation, as the 3-diamond Casino has over 2,200 slot and video poker machines, 66 table games, and 15 poker tables operating 24 hours a day.

That evening, the team got a taste of Kansas City at Rosso, an upscale restaurant inside the Hotel Sorella Country Club Plaza 。 The hotel gives a modern feel fixed with Mediterranean accents and unique accommodations. If you’re appreciative of fine art, look no further than Sorella, which incorporates timeless pieces of Renaissance-inspired art that will leave you speechless.

Hotel Sorella has 132 guest rooms. Visitors benefit from a complementary European breakfast at Francesca’s Greenhouse lounge, with access to Mediterranean dining on the rooftop, a rooftop swimming pool, fitness center and more.

The hotel has phenomenal reviews, and previously received the Trip Advisor certificate of excellence, the 2016 Diner’s Choice Award from Opentable.com, the 10 Best Hotels in Kansas City by USA Today, and multiple celebrity guest stays. Along with fine dining choices, Kansas City has a near-limitless variety of barbecue joints, offering platter upon platter of savory smoked meat to satisfy your taste buds. Arthur Bryant’s dates back to the early 1900s and is said to be some of the best barbecue ones could eat. The restaurant takes you back to the father of Kansas City barbecue, Henry Patrick. He shared his love of meats with the Garment District in downtown Kansas City at an alley stand. Arthur Bryant would eventually take over the business. With celebrities such as Steven Spielberg, Jimmy Carter and President Barack Obama dining at Arthur Bryant’s, the joint has received sensational reviews and built a solid rapport with loyal customers.

For the ultimate foodie/barbecue lover, try a Kansas City Barbecue Bus Tour, where you can stop at Arthur Bryant’s and other local restaurants like LC’s Barbeque, Gates Barbeque, and Jack Stack Barbecue. On the second day, we spent the afternoon riding from restaurant to restaurant, by bus, to enjoy some of the finest “Q” in Kansas City.

President of 360 Magazine, Vaughn Lowery, has traveled around the world trying the most scrumptious foods and had a few words to share in-between bites. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, and knowing a thing or two about barbecue, the fellow Midwesterner offers high praise.

“Kansas City is a meat lover’s paradise,” Lowery said, “and the burnt ends at LC’S BBQ are to die for!” The crisp, charred brisket is slowly cooked and re-seasoned multiple times, giving it that perfect coating of bark before hitting the tender meat. This Kansas City delicacy is a must-try. Your taste buds better hold on tight for the flavorsome twists and turns of the best meats and sides from just any one of the hundred barbecue spots in Kansas City. Aside from barbecue, additional gourmet dining options are found in downtown and smaller suburbs. In Independence, for example, Ophelia’s Restaurant and Inn serves a delectable Greek Orzo and Lemon Shrimp Salad. Now that’s healthy, done right.

Union Station is Kansas City’s own Grand Central Station, perhaps best known for the iconic Pierpont Restaurant. The restaurant was named for railroad baron J.P. (Pierpont) Morgan. Its menu features fine steaks and seafood.

Hallmark Cards headquarters is located in downtown Kansas City, in the Crown Center area. Surrounded by Hallmark is The Lego Discovery Center, which the 360 Team, of course, stumbled upon. Every structure at this grand facility is creatively crafted using Legos. It made total sense once we realized that classes are taught by modern builders. Discover the engineer in you. It’s all fun and games until you come across children who build better automobiles than you. Speaking of the kids, if they’re traveling with you, don’t miss the Sea Life Kansas City Aquarium which is located next to Union Station.

Fan of America’s favorite pastime? Kansas City has a rich baseball history. Fans can catch the 2015 World Series Champion Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium. Those who enjoy baseball history won’t want to miss the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, where the stories of great players and entrepreneurs, such as Chicago American Giants owner and Negro National League co-founder Andrew “Rube” Foster unfold.

Seeing the city while enjoying a carriage ride provides relaxation and exploration.

Work your way around town as you come across the Nelson-Atkins Museum, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and Weston Brewing Company. Grab the flagship beer, O’Malley’s Irish Cream Ale, as a refreshing treat after your day of exploration, chowing down exquisite cuisine and witnessing decades of art-infused culture as you travel through time.

You’ll leave Kansas City rejuvenated by its incredible residents and historic charm. Refresh yourself when you #VisitMO.

ANN ARBOR MICHIGAN

If you are looking for an innovative, clean and relaxing place to enjoy a vacation or just a new place to explore, Michigan is it! To be specific, Ann Arbor is just a few hours away (by automobile) from Chicago, right outside of Detroit and below Windsor (the city in Ontario, Canada). Its endroit parfait induces an avant-garde, invigorating city and nature vibe. We wanted to spice up this press trip, so we tuned select events into a full-on fashion and lifestyle shoot. Upon arrival, we had breakfast at the Holiday Inn Ann Arbor near the University of Michigan. Straightaway we took part in exciting activities in Ypsilanti. We visited Puffer Reds since we are obsessed with cutting-edge fashion, which is a boutique that houses clothing, shoes and accessories. It has been in existence since 1979. Puffer Reds has two locations, one in Ypsilanti city and the other in Wayne county. You can shop online if you don’t live close to those areas. Ypsi Alehouse and Mishigama Craft Brewery serves many appealing beers, but, our favorite is Jimmy Jack’s Normal Beer. If you are into spicy food, you should try their Cherry Peppers and Smoked Wings.

Unity Vibration focuses on a variety of Kombucha beers and teas. The Triple Goddess Bourbon Peach Beer and Pineapple Ginger Tea are simply a delight to your buds. The Chelsea Alehouse Brewery specializes in English and American ales with many different kinds of palates including scotch, sour, cream ales and cream stout with several other varieties. Definitely try Firefly Wheat, from the selection of brews, paired nicely with their Smoked Trout Spread; the restaurant is dipped in elegance and serenity, and their food is to die for.

Eve Aronoff, French-trained chef and owner, greeted us at her restaurant, Eve Restaurant, which is located inside the Bel Tower Hotel in downtown Ann Arbor. TeaHaus is a wonderful and comfortable establishment to sip tea. They have more than 180 different teas to choose from, including classic black teas, Oolong green, white, herbal, Ayurvedic, fruit, aromatic and seasonal teas. Zingerman’s Delicatessen serves sandwiches to pair with every type of personality imaginable. It also doubles as a specialty food store, selling an array of cheeses, meats, olive oils, vinegar, coffees, teas and much more – all of these items are available via mail except the sandwiches, of course. Once you make it to Zingerman’s Deli, walk upstairs and take a look at the quilt artwork, adorable.

Ashley’s is an Irish pub that sits right across from the University of Michigan. It became an instant favorite from the first sip of their Bourbon. Johnnie Walker’s Blue Label Scotch Whisky is really rich in taste, and works well with Ashley’s BLT sandwich, which also comes with Fried Cheese Curds, Pesto Fries and a Bacon Wedge Salad. It’s heaven on earth. Arbor Brewing Company produces 130 different types of beers. A reasonable amount are seasonal and location-specific. A must-try is the Bollywood Blonde and Bliss Wheat. We came across a coffee liqueur which is worth trying, available at Ann Arbor Distilling company. We also sipped on a White Russian, which was as smooth as silk.

When time neared for the brief fashion editorial at Taste Kitchen, our stomachs were still able to work up the butterflies! It was here in Ypsilanti City, where we set up the camera equipment and searched for perfect lighting, which wasn’t that difficult in Taste Kitchen ( they’re well-equipped with massive storefront windows and tons of natural light). A little background on Taste Kitchen: this restaurant doesn’t specialize in exactly one particular category – a global cuisine with local ingredients. During your meal, it tastes as if every bite you take had been meticulously considered. Chef Danny Van treated us to a menu that called us to surrender. The dishes were so succulent, that after a full day of activities, we stuffed our stomachs with Van cuisine, and afterward, all we could do was retreat back to our room .

The University of Michigan Stadium aka “The Big House” is a classically constructed and colossal stadium built in 1927. Now, it is the largest stadium in America, with an official seating capacity of 109,900, though attendance often exceeds 111,000. One of the big perks during this tour was having the privilege of walking into the official locker rooms. The French toast at Fleetwood Diner is scrumptious, and one of their popular items is the Hippie Hash. If you’re into Moroccan food, the Casablanca is tasty, and refresh your palate with a Casablanca Fresh Lemonade with Ginger. The squad ordered a few plates: Casablanca Hummus, B’stilla , Couscous Dish and Casablanca Whole Chicken with yellow long grain rice (very tasty). The Original Gravity specializes in porter, light golden Belgian ale, American pale ale, amber ale, IPA, vanilla java porter and Orange Peel Wheels.

But, the Shinebox Dunkelweizen is recommended. Check out their website to stay abreast on their exciting menu changes. Wolverine State Brewing bar is known for their famous nachos, the 2019 Nachos. We enjoyed a flight of beers that included: Barista, Gulo, WPL, Raucher Smoked Lager and the Barista Coffee Lager (strongly recommended). In addition, they house an exclusive lager, the Wolverine Massacre Imperial Dark Lager, available annually, but only in the month of October. The dark lager is especially unique because of its packaging. Each bottle is dipped in red wax to seal in the delectable flavor. At Grange Kitchen & Bar, we tried their Spring Greens salad, Grilled Asparagus and Grilled Lake Trout. The Farmers Market introduced us to Lovage ice cream, quite a refreshing little treat. We were overjoyed to catch Pride Night at Necto nightclub. Veuve Clicquot and team members made the night! Braun Court is also an LGBTQ safe space that offers a variety of shops and great nightlife venues.

Kerrytown also houses a Farmers Market full of vendors, not to miss out on are: Maitelates Alfajor Artisanal, Mill Pond Bread, Mindo Chocolate and White Lotus Farms – just to name a few. If you’re into gelato, try the Nocciola, Coffee, Stoneground & Salted, Coconut Macaroon or Chocolate Balsamic Strawberry at Zingerman’s Creamery. So, who would’ve thought to transform an old church into a restaurant and brewery? Owners of Salt Springs Brewery, located in Saline, did. I mean, most churches hoard wine and flatbreads anyway, right? The Salt Springs Mac-N-Cheese and Sausage Pizza were faultless. At Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales, in Dexter, we tasted more beers and Bourbon. Our servers recommend La Roja, they were right. Down in Grizzly Peak Brewing, we suggest Hop Happy Monk and Bear Paw Porter. It had been a while since we had tequila on our tongues, so we took a recommendation to Isalita, and that did the trick. Mani, an osteria and restaurant, offers small plates featuring seasonal and local ingredients. Their menu includes stone-fired pizza, house-made pasta alongside a small production of Old World wines. Their Pickled Tomatoes were delicious with toasted bread. Our stone-fired pizza recommendations are Cippolini and Puttanesca. We also enjoyed their Linguine and Pappardelle. It seemed we really couldn’t go wrong with anything on their menu.

This metropolis is filled with an array of restaurants and bars, with a tight local network of local farms. Ann Arbor is an innovative, fresh and artistic town, chockful of eclectic culture.

HOFSAS HOUSE HOTEL

DISCONNECTING FROM THE WORLD IS EASIER WITH AN ASTONISHING OCEAN VIEW IN HOFSAS HOUSE HOTEL

The charming hamlet of Carmel-by-the-Sea hosts a boutique family-owned inn with 38 uniquely decorated rooms. A thalassophile is able to watch glorious sunsets over the Pacific Ocean from the seclusion of the inn’s decks or rooms. Hofsas offers a warm ambiance with its fireplaces, exclusive balconies and wet bars or kitchens. Comfortability seems to be their primary priority.

Amongst their amenities, you can enjoy a continental breakfast with French roasted coffee, tea, fresh pastries delivered from a local bakery, juice and/or fruit. After satisfying your hunger, you can relax in its heated swimming pool and dry saunas or walk about the area with your pet-friendly. If that is not enough, there is also free wireless internet access.

Hofsas House has a welcoming mural painted by their featured artist Maxine Albro, who also made the headboard spotted in room 47. Albro was commissioned by her friend Donna Hofsas, the hotel’s founder. In the 1940s and 1950s, Maxine was living in Carmel. After the main four-story addition to the Hofsas House was completed in 1957, Donna asked Maxine to create the wall painting and add other highlights to the front of the building to enhance the Bavarian theme. She also painted the three pictures hanging in the lobby. Maxine Albro was an artist who worked between Mexico and San Francisco. She carried out many commissions under programs of the New Deal, such as the Federal Works of Art Project and the Works Progress Administration. Albro was one of the foremost female artists to be hired as a muralist for this national project. The most significant commission Albro executed in her career was a mural at Coit Tower in San Francisco. As a tribute to Maxine, Hofsas House commissioned local artist Christine Sorensen to touch up a headboard and valance, faux paint the walls, enhance the end tables and glaze the crown molding in Room 47.

Hofsas House can be proud of its marvelous localization. Everything, including the beach, is well within walking distance.
In that respect is an iconic 45-year- old restaurant called The Whaling Station Steakhouse, where 360 MAGAZINE had the opportunity to taste its exceptional menu. In this steakhouse, you can find executive Chef David Stember’s very own creations, such as prime rib egg rolls ( shaved prime rib, caramelized onions and a Gruyere – Emmental – Swiss cheese blend stuffed inside a crispy egg roll wrapper ) and an open-faced bourbon BBQ beef sandwich on garlic toast. The Whaling Station was one of the first to cook the $99 prime porterhouse steak for two, USDA PRIME grade prime rib, an accolade –
winning wine list, the now-famous open-faced steak sandwich, Caesar salad tossed tableside, the ability to add a lobser tail to any entrée, and Castroville artichokes. Moreover, The Bar at The Whaling Station has its own menu and its own local following, with drink specials and lively conversation served nightly. The Whaling Station is the perfect choice for a meal during a peaceful stay in Hofsas House.

Rosalía illustration by wanny ng for 360 magazine

TRIUMPH OF ROSALIA IN MADRID

Rosalía surrenders and triumphs with the M of Madrid and Motomami in her two shows full of hits.

The Catalan singer offered two wild and innovative pop shows at the WiZink Center before an ecstatic audience. We couldn’t wait to hear Rosalía sing in concert. And finally, this Tuesday, July 19, and Wednesday, July 20, we saw the creator of Motomami gather her fans in Madrid.

On Tuesday, she appeared in a total red look with an unstructured board skirt, bullfighter leather jacket, bodysuit, extra-long braids, and high boots. The Spanish singer appeared under her iconic helmet. On Wednesday, she acted with the same look but in a different color by using black and nude yellow for the second time.

Just a few minutes after 9:30 p.m., the first reflections of the helmets of the Motomami universe appeared behind the stage. It sounded like “Chica, que dices?!” with the motorcycles roaring. The singer began the show with Saoko‘s unbeatable song, which is a shot of energy to start both concerts on top.

She continued to sing hits, one after another. CandyLa Fama, and Bizcochito were played in the first part of the two concerts, some of the greatest hits of her latest work.

With all the eclecticism, all the avant-garde, and all the groundbreaking elements of her disco, she knew how to transfer to the stage without great artifice, thus creating a historical show. Not only did we get a chance to listen to this new kind of music style, but we also got to feel the organic vein of hers settling into her setlist. Thus, we heard how Dolerme interpreted with no more elements than his voice and guitar. 

In the way that her most recent album is a tribute to all the music that the artist likes, Rosalía scored a fun medley with mythical Latin songs: Gasolina by Daddy Yankee and Papi Chulo by Lorna. She also included them in her two performances, the Blinding Lights remix with her friend The Weeknd.

As we have already been observing in other tour’s concerts, the composer wanted to premiere new songs live: Despechá, Libertad, Dinero, or Aislamiento.

Motomami is an album that mixes flamenco, reggaeton, bolero, some jazz, and rap, perfect for you to listen to live.

JUSTIN BIEBER IS BACK

The Canadian singer confirmed that he will resume his world tour after suffering from facial paralysis.

Justin will return to the stage to continue his world tour soon. After being diagnosed with Ramsay Syndrome, he temporarily stopped his world tour. The return will happen on July 31, which was reported this Tuesday (July 19) by the concert promoter AEG on its social platforms.

With this, the author of “Baby” will start at the Lucca Summer Festival (Italy). Justin Bieber’s world tour has 75 dates and will conclude in the UK, where he will perform in London, Glasgow, Manchester, and Birmingham between February and March.

On June 10, the singer worried everyone after posting on his Instagram account that he suffered from facial paralysis. He also pronounced some heartfelt words revealing his state of health and explained why he was forced to cancel his concert tour.

“Obviously, you may have noticed that my face is frozen. I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt and it is a virus that attacks the nerves in my ear, which caused my face to look like this’’, the symptoms started in the post Justin uploaded to Instagram.

“As you can see, my eye is not blinking, and my mouth is not fully smiling. This whole part of my face is totally paralyzed, so I will have to cancel my concerts. Obviously, I am not able to perform the show in this state,” he added.

“It’s really serious. I wish that wasn’t the case, but I must take care of my body, I hope you understand, “said the singer regarding the cancellation of one of his shows, adding that” I hope to improve and do everything I was born for. I will take a break until my face is back to how it should be.”

“Everything will be fine. I trust this all happened for a reason, I’m not sure what it is at this point, but eventually I’ll find out.” He finally ended up saying “please pray for me” and “I love you guys, keep me in your prayers” to his fans.
