Extreme Beauty: Laser Facial Part Deux

{Glow: c/o Vivid Face. Photographed by Jorge Camaraza.} A few months back I mentioned I’ve beamed myself  into the world of laser facials at Vivid Face as part of my new Extreme Beauty series. Since August, I’ve been playing laser tag on the imperfections my skin has managed to bring to the surface over the years. Not only am I pleased with the results of the Aventura laser spa’s Signature Treatment, I’ve actually stopped wearing makeup to things like drop-off, Pilates and basic errands. Wait for it, there’s more: I’m only wearing one thin layer of foundation these days. And it feels amazing. But, being a Miami girl, I still have sun damage, the little leftovers from all those days on the beach, all those trips on boats, all those water-logged vacations. I’ve decided to do something about those, too, with the team at Vivid Face. I’ve signed up for three…Read More

Extreme Beauty: No More Waiting in Line

{Wearing: Dress: Blush. Shoes: Steve Madden. Necklace. Hair & Makeup: Gina Dearing. Skincare: Botoxx Labb Aesthetic Beauty Bar. Photographed by Milly Jane Harris.} Expressions are nice. Wrinkles, not so much. Finding a balance between the two is something you gotta do when you start to look up at the fourth floor (I’m talking 40s, people. It’s coming sooner than later, and I’m not going down without a fight). I’ve found my balance at Botox Labb Aesthetic Beauty Bar with Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner Danielle Smith. After an awesome consultation the month before, here’s how our first appointment went down: I walk in. Danielle and Jen, the patient coordinator—are walking around with rainbow polka dot grids on their chins. Me: “Um, so whatcha got goin’ on there?” Jen: I’m trying out Kybella. Danielle: Me, too. Me: Oh, I’ve heard of that. Danielle: It melts your fat. Me: And have you ever done it…Read More

Fall Staples: Sweater and Suede

{Wearing: AYNI Sweater and Skirt: c/o My Home Fashion Boutique. Maroon Suede Heels: c/o T.J. Maxx. Makeup: c/o Glamsquad with Celina Beach Artistry. Hair: c/o Glamsquad with Barbie Annitto Photographed by Danielle Margherite Photography LLC.} If there are six staples every Miami girl needs to fake it through fall, the first is a classic white tee, the second a black leather skirt. Next, a great pair of skinny jeans. Add in a lacy top. When it comes to the last two, make sure you have a suede skirt and a sweater, like these from AYNI, all of which you can find at My Home Fashion Boutique. This last look from my fall essentials series is my favorite. Suede is the go-to fabric this season and this skirt captures the whole ’70s vibe with its patchwork feel. With maroon taking the color wheel by storm, the must-have attraction to this skirt makes perfect sense. Since sweaters and Miami go…Read More

Fall Staples: Denim and Lace

{Wearing: Lace Neck Top: c/o My Home Fashion Boutique. Mia & Moss Jeans: c/o My Home Fashion Boutique. Maroon Suede Heels: c/o T.J. Maxx. Makeup: c/o Glamsquad with Celina Beach Artistry. Hair: c/o Glamsquadwith Barbie Annitto   Photographed by Danielle Margherite Photography LLC.} In my last post, I mentioned that there are a few staples we Miami girls absolutely must have to get through fall fashionably. The first two were a classic white tee and a leather skirt, which I scored at My Home Fashion Boutique. My next two are another round of basics that you will find yourself living in—a dainty, feminine blouse and a great pair of dark jeans, also from My Home Fashion Boutique. I opted for a lacy top to keep the look soft. Lace, for me, has a vintage feel that I swoon for. And I’m a sucker for black skinny jeans. They go with absolutely everything. For instance,…Read More

You want so badly to dress for it, but the weather won’t let you. And that’s why Miami girls have to do fall a little differently. In the next few days, I’ll be sharing my essentials for fall—Miami fall, anyway—all of which you can find at My Home Fashion Boutique, an awesome new store in Miami at 14681 Biscayne Blvd. To kick things off, let’s start with two basics: A classic white tee and a leather skirt. The ’70s and ’90s are making a big revival this season, and…Read More

Why You Should Spa at Tierra Santa Healing House

{Wearing: Dress: Touch Dolls. Wedges: Steve Madden. Bracelet: Touch Dolls.} This is a pic of very happy me. Why? I recently discovered a new type of spa treatment at Tierra Santa Healing House at Faena. One of my personal favorite indulgences is spa-ing, so when I find a treatment I’ve never heard of, well, it gets me all giddy inside. And that’s exactly what happened when I stepped into the beautiful spa at Faena. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been dying to go there forever. I’ve seen that stunning chandelier posted on every who’s who Instagram from here to New York, my fomo mounting. When it was finally my turn to indulge, I couldn’t wait. The space itself its the stuff interior design junkies foam at the mouth over. It’s like stepping into a Wes Anderson set. Red (that’s my signature shade) touches everywhere. It’s serene and vintage and modern…Read More

Happy Hour at a Spa—Brilliant

{Wearing: Sunnies: Touch. Nails: Geleration in Dynamic c/o Guy and Girl Spa.} Summer is coming to a grinding halt, which means we’re all headed back to where we came from after months of travel, late bedtimes, seeing new places, trying new things. And coming home is well, hard. That’s why we have to make an attempt to find things to make us feel better about being here. Here’s one: Happy Hour at Guy and Girl Spa. On September 1, the spa at the Mondrian kicked off a spa happy hour that runs Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 to 7 p.m. Services include the Signature Massage (50 minutes for $89), the Facial (50 minutes for $89 and with choice of eye or lip treatment) and Express Mani & Pedi (60 minutes for $75 and with choice of hand or foot paraffin treatment). Services come with a complimentary glass of champs. I…Read More

Miami Spa Month Still Going

{My Spa Month Experience c/o Agua at The Delano}  {Braid by L’Oréal Professionnel} Attention, Miami, as of today, August 3, 2016, you still have 28 days left to pamper yourself at Miami Spa Month. From now until August 31, spa treatments are all the rage. I unwound from swim week with a chill afternoon at Agua at The Delano. After slipping into my white robe, I sat back and relaxed in their white lounge, overlooking the beach. After flipping through a few pages of a local mag and finding my vibe, my masseuse came to take me away to a candlelit room. For the next 90 minutes, sheer bliss. I opted for the Citrus Scrub & Rub ($199 for 90 minutes). We started off polishing my skin to perfection with a basil & lemon sugar scrub. Then, it was off to the shower to wash off what the scrub left…Read More

Meet the Team Who Gives Me #MySassoonStyle

{Hair by Sassoon in Miami Beach. This photograph by Jorge Camaraza.} That’s me up there, having a good hair day, thanks to the hair whisperers at Sassoon in Miami Beach. I’ve been a part of the long hair team for about two years now, and being a part of that tribe takes a lot maintenance. Nearly once a month, I slip into Sassoon for a hair transformation, to keep these long locks in line. I know that when I get there, Ronnie, my colorist will take whatever damage Miami has done to my hair (sun eating my color, chlorine fading my hue, age turning my brown locks grey) and reverse it. Once she gets her hands on my strands I know its only a matter of time before I’m a rich, deep, chocolate brunette. Afterward, she always treats me to a Kerastase mask that loads my hair with shine that goes the…Read More
