Four-Letter Words

{Wearing: Black Flowy Dress: shopblush.com. Wedges: c/o ShoeDazzle. Photographed by me.} Love—it’s a fairly interesting four-letter word. OK, maybe it’s not the one I constantly yell as I’m battling Miami’s sea of endless bad drivers, but it’s still a good one. In fact, last Saturday it turned into the theme of the day. My dear friend Annie Vazquez, The Fashion Poet, invited me to a lovely brunch with ShoeDazzle. It happened to be at Love is Blind. I just happen to LOVE that place. The two times I had been there before I danced the night away with a smile perma-glued to my face. And this particular day I got to celebrate another thing I love: shoes. Because real talk: it’s easier to love shoes than it is to love some people. After social hour and shoe talk with the girls (if you aren’t already a member of ShoeDazzle, consider…Read More



The Great Staycation

Sometimes you just need to get away. And sometimes the best getaway is going nowhere at all. Oxymoron? No, it’s called the staycation, and I recently indulged when life handed me a kidless weekend. Mills went on an Orlando adventure without me and with no one to care for, I decided to take care of myself. Novel idea, because as a mom, that rarely happens. Since I live in Miami Beach, where there’s a pool, a party and a perfect hotel just around the corner, I decided to stay put and do all the things I never do. With those intentions, a swimsuit in my bag and not a care in the world,  I checked into The Shore Club and I indulged in all the things one should do on a staycation, like … Pop a bottle. Who has champagne on a regular basis? Unless you’re on Lifestyles of the Rich…Read More

Beauty Board: Absolute Essentials

There are just some beauty products you cannot live without. Like, you’ll pay the overnight cost on shipping even if it’s three times the product just to make sure you don’t have to face the day without that one product. Turns out, I have seven (and that’s a whole lot of shipping). Here’s what I need to get by: ReVive Fermitif Hand Renewal Cream + Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen— Nothing bothers me more than dry, chapped hands. And nothing scares me more than old lady hands (I know you know what I’m talking about. Those dry, wrinkly hands covered in age spots). I fight both with Revive’s hand cream, which is easy to stash in my purse so I can apply whenever necessary. La Prairie Anti-Aging Rapid Response Booster— Wrinkles be damned! I am not going to let you win. Instead, I’m going to slather this on my face right…Read More

The Benefits of Being Vertically Challenged

{Wearing: Dress: Market Miami. Necklace: Kore. Shoes: c/o T.J. Maxx. Photographed by me.} Being short sucks. You’re constantly transitioning from human to spider monkey, jumping up on kitchen counters to reach things on the top shelf. Then, there’s the obligatory short person stool, where some raised platform situation allows you to hurl yourself upward so you can scale the shelves of your closet or medicine cabinet. And let’s not forget how we shorties own zero pairs of pants that haven’t been altered from here to the ends of time so they don’t drag the floor should you choose to not wear heels. BUT, there is one good thing I’ve come across as a vertically challenged human being, and I’m wearing it in this very post. Because God decided to grant me with legs that rival that of the Pygmy tribe, I can get away with wearing tops as dresses. In fact,…Read More

My Favorite Spring Trend

{Wearing: Top: c/o Marshalls. Jeans: c/o American Eagle. Necklace: c/o T.J. Maxx. Shoes: c/o T.J. Maxx. Photographed by Milly Jane Harris.} Long live boho! As soon as it starts to heat up outside, I gravitate toward my favorite trend: boho chic. Luckily, thanks to the popularity of festivals like Coachella, this season the boho trend is on point for spring. From fringe to beads to gauzy tops and distressed bottoms, it’s a hippie dippie kind of world and I’m all over it. I recently hit up T.J Maxx and Marshalls to shop the trend for a piece just for my blog. If course, it’s spring break so kiddo was in tow to help me make my selections. And she’s just as big into the boho craze as I am. We started at the jewelry counter at T.J. Maxx, where we spied this bib necklace, which has a festival vibe with…Read More

Spring is in the Air

{Wearing: Dress: c/o Kore. Necklace: c/o Orchid Boutique. Sandals: c/o T.J. Maxx. Photographed by me.} “She turned to the sunlight And shook her head, And whispered to her neighbor: ‘Winter is dead.’” What is it about spring that makes me want to be outside from sun up to sun down? The beautiful blue skies, the chirping birds, the gorgeous rays of sun beating down on my skin and filling me with a warmth that’s so strong I feel it inside. With the risk of sounding cliche, spring awakens my soul and fills me with all the possibilities of what’s to come. Here we are just 18 days in and I already feel anew. New jobs, new friends, new adventures. Here’s to getting lost under the sun with the sand between your toes. To gauzy white dresses billowing in the breeze. To watching the sun dip into the sky and color…Read More

Kiddo Hearts Karl Lagerfeld

{Wearing: (On Me:) Top: Blush. Jeans: J. Brand. Bracelets: Frangipani Shoes: c/o Melissa Shoes. (On Kiddo:) Jumpsuit: Gap Kids. Shoes: c/o Melissa Shoes.} Kiddo and I helped kick off the grand opening of Melissa Shoe at Aventura Mall this week. And oh, what a night it was. Everyone turned up in their Melissa Shoes and snatched up a few new pairs, too. And if Milly had anything to say about it, they were going home with the Melissa and Karl Lagerfeld collaboration. She couldn’t get enough of the sunglasses-adorned high-heeled shoes. And she insisted everyone try them on. Turns out, kid has a thing for Karl. It’s OK, Mills, we all do. But in the end, we settled on cherries for her and a pair of amazing wedges for me that will see my every trip to the pool this spring and summer. Thanks to everyone who came out. We had…Read More
