The Seekender’s Guide to Miami Beach

{Photographed by Jorge Camaraza}  Summer, the season of travel. A time to go see the world, do something new, scratch something off that bucket list you’ve been carrying around. This summer, while I’m running off to see corners of the world, others will make their way to this little plot of sand I call home. As much as I love helpful hints on where to go and what to see on my journeys, I feel its only fitting for me to do the same of my own city. That being said, welcome to Miami Beach. As a Seekender for Hampton by Hilton, I’ve traveled most of my adventures via motorcycle, seeing Colorado and the Pacific Coast Highway via Indian bike. If you’re on your own Hampton by Hilton Seekender journey, keep in mind Miami Beach is great via bike, too. But this terrain calls for bicycle instead of something with…Read More

Extreme Beauty: Laser Facial Part Five

{Wearing: My Home Fashion Boutique Sweater. Hair: c/o Glamsquad with Vanessa Placeres. Makeup: c/o Glamsquad with Celina Beach Artistry. Photographed by Danielle Margherite Photography LLC} What is it about Bahamian ocean water that makes skin so good? Is it the water? The salt in the water? The sand? Whatever it is, after a weekend jaunt to Bimini and a round of Vivid Face laser facials (smooth mixed with an acne-targeting treatment), I’m ready to put my best face forward for summer. My last round of laser facials really did a world of good. Whatever was beneath the surface got stopped right in its tracks, which sent me to Bimini with clear skin. And once those magical ocean waters got on my skin, well, I’ve been roaming around foundation-free ever since. Maybe a little It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream here and there, but that’s about it. As I’ve mentioned before, these facials from Vivid Face are really helping my skin…Read More

Colorado, Here We Come: Let’s Go Spring Skiing

Here’s the thing about Miami come spring. Actually, come the first hint of spring. It’s hot. And it gets hotter out of nowhere. Like today, in June, when its hard to tell the difference between the surface of the sun and Miami. Knowing this, when the opportunity to be a Seekender again for Hampton by Hilton arose, we opted to ditch the bike and bring along the whole crew. The thing about traveling is, it’s selfish to keep it to yourself. What’s beautiful about seeing the world is sharing it with the people you love. So instead of a Seekender adventure for two, ours became an adventure for five. One of which we’re hard-pressed to peg down in photos as he’s in the teenage years and raging against the social media machine. Rare sightings of the elusive Julien will make their way into this tale as its told, so keep…Read More
