My PCH Seekender Adventure: I Left My Heart in San Francisco

As we boarded the plane, him leading the way down the aisle, I thought to myself: This is going to be an amazing trip, but there’s no way it will compare to Colorado—my last Hampton by Hilton Seekender adventure. Sure, we would be back on the bike, the wind in our hair, careening through landscapes foreign to our traditional Miami scenery. But Colorado was so magical. The mountains. The sky. The freedom. The rush. The beauty of it all. Zooming across the Pacific Coast Highway on an Indian motorcycle with my best friend and partner in crime with me every step of the way was definitely going to be amazing, but how could it possibly touch the majestic journey across Colorado that still lives and breathes inside of me? This will still be nice, I thought. Now, looking back, I can see just how truly foolish a thought that was….Read More

Let’s Yoge

I can only hope someday Milly will love yoga the same way I do. I can only hope that she, too, will find in yoga a place where she feels confident, beautiful, free. The only way to give that hope legs is to take her to yoga every chance she lets me. That’s what we’ll be doing together this Wednesday night, May 11, when we host Leggings Lounge at Anatomy’s rooftop. This time around the yoga class takes a mommy and me turn, so bring your little one if you have one, bring your mom or just bring yourself. We’ll get our om on from 6 to 8 p.m. with Nathalie Perdomo leading the way. Be sure to RSVP to LeggingsLounge.SplashThat.com. See you there. And namaste.

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

Remix: The Art of an AfterParty

{My favorite vintage party dress, may it rest in peace. It put up a good fight dancing the night away at Maria Tettamanti’s wedding and then it gracefully bowed out of rotation.} Fact: If it has a dress-up angle, I’m all in. And now that 2015 is in full swing, I have the first dress-up party of the year to add to the agenda. Perez Art Museum Miami’s (PAMM) annual gala, Art of the Party, is coming up on January 17, 2015 and I’m hosting the after party, cooly dubbed Remix. Use my discount code and get $150 0ff the ticket price. Then, you can join me for a night of dressing up, dining on desserts, drinking libations and dancing. With Louis Vuitton presenting the event, you know it’s going to be a fashionable affair. And i’m itching to get dolled up in this Alexis dress I’ve had waiting in…Read More

Ready, Set, Target Style

{Wearing a little something from Target in each of these pics.} I’ve been shopping at Target since I was like 4 (it’s one of the benefits of growing up in the Midwest—the motherland of Target). When I was a kiddo, my grandmother would take me and we’d spend endless hours in the toy aisle buying ’80s staples like Sea Wees, My Little Pony, Barbie, She-Ra, etc … As an adult, Target has become my Disneyland, a playground, if you will, for retail therapy, a place to pick up things we need for the house and a bunch of stuff we don’t and go-to to surprise Milly the same way my grandma surprised me. As a blogger, Target is what propelled me to have a fashion blog. Before WuGate the only person who tuned into my blog was my Mom with her “You go, Girl” comments. Thanks, mom. Clearly, Target and…Read More

The Great Escape

{Wearing: Bikini: Indah from Blush. Kimono: c/o TJ Maxx.}  Back when I lived in New York, I would toss on my Discman (that’s iTunes version 1.0 for those who aren’t old-ish) and put my latest obsession on repeat. For a long duration the album on constant rotation was James’ Seven. One particular lyric from “Sound” has stuck with me to this day, some decade and a half later: “Do everything you fear, in this there’s power, fear is not to be afraid of.” I hate when fear holds me back from doing something. I hate that it has any kind of grip over me. I so envy people who have no inhibitions when it comes to just letting go. But, alas, I come from a long line of non-thrill seekers and peril isn’t our adrenaline rush. In fact, we won’t even ride the roller coasters at Disney. We’ll just sit…Read More
