Prelude to a Kiss

{Vaseline Lip Therapy Tin in Rosy Lips.} {Wearing: Vest: Market Miami. Jeans: American Eagle. Shoes: c/o T.J. Maxx.} I live in Miami so nothing every gets dried out. I mean, how can it? It’s rarely below 70 degrees and we have enough humidity to keep your hair in a state of perma-frizz until the end of Hillary’s second term (see what I did there?). False! Just because we Miamians don’t have winter doesn’t mean we don’t need to moisturize on the regular. That big ball up there in the sky that keeps us in a constant state of hot also dries us out. And I’m fairly certain chapped lips—the side effect of said ball—are just evil face hangnails. Chapped lips feel like sandpaper rubbing against sandpaper. No one wants to put lipstick on them. No one wants to kiss them. And they feel awful pressed together. So, when Vaseline recently…Read More

Orange You Glad?

{Wearing: Top: c/o Trina Turk Carlyle Top. Skirt: c/o Trina Turk Crissy Skirt. Shoes: Zara. Bag: Nanette Lepore.} Here’s the thing about being a Miami girl: Very few designers get our style. The ones who are homegrown get it because they live it. But those who design outside of Miami, well, they don’t process how palm trees are just a staple in a photo’s background, as well as how they can be in every. single. picture. They don’t comprehend how Miami bleeds color the way the wind blows in most places. Or how we love a big, bold pattern as much as we love dancing the night well into the next day. But then there’s Trina Turk and she, well, she just gets it. It’s as though she herself lives smack in the middle of a cool Art Deco apartment in South Beach. She hails from Cali, which makes her Miami’s…Read More



Rapunzel Returns

{Wearing: Crop top: c/o Susy Who. Black Zip Crop Jean: Shoes: Steve Madden Roebella Pumps. Bag: c/o Hayden-Harnett Pieced Out Dome Satchel. Hair: c/o Angels Luxury Hair. Photographed by Maria Tettamanti.} She’s baaaaaack. Rapunzel returns. I haven’t had hair extensions since last summer, which was the first and only time in my life I’ve had them. I’m OK with the length of my hair. In fact, it’s longer than it’s been in seven years. But there’s just something about having hair that’s longer than yours will ever grow that makes you feel like a human My Little Pony. And there’s no feeling better than whipping your weave. So, when Angels Luxury Hair came knocking, I ran like an Olympic athlete to answer. Now here’s where things get bananas. About a week ago I posted a video to Maria Tettamanti‘s Facebook page of this insanely genius extension situation that kind of just rests on…Read More

Red Carpet-Ready Hair

{Wearing: Dress: Touch Dolls Boutique. Hair: c/o Sassoon.} Sunday, as some of the most beautiful celebs on planet earth take to the red carpet in stunning gowns and jewels for the Academy Awards, I’ll be laid out on the couch in my favorite pajama pants guzzling a bag of Twizzlers. Hey, it’s a rough job, but someone’s got to do it. Watching the Oscars, however, is guaranteed to give me glam fomo, which is why I caught up with the experts at Sassoon in Miami Beach to get the scoop on red carpet-ready hair. Reality check for us non-Academy Award winning regular folk: The opportunity to rock glammed-out hair will occur far more often than the need to wear a Marchesa gown. Now that I have all this hair, I’m curious about what to do with it, especially when there’s a soiree on the agenda. Regional Salon Director Pascal Bodin…Read More

What’s in February’s Glossybox

{February Glossybox c/o Glossybox.} From time to time I talk about how much kiddo and I love getting stuff in the mail. It’s right up there with new shoes, blowouts and the cheese that oozes out of the top of a quesadilla and turns to a crispy, crunchy piece of perfection. February is a particularly mail-filled time of the year, too, thanks to Valentine’s Day, which was the inspiration for this month’s Glossybox. I let my mini in on the joy of opening up this month’s treasures (because sharing is caring) and together we unearthed GlamGlow Thirsty Cleanse Daily Hydrating Cleanser (the brand is a personal fave of mine), Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer and WAIT, just watch the video below to see the other cool stuff I’ve been trying out this month. Then, find deets on getting your hands on your own Glossybox subscription here.

Chap Chat

There I am, front and center in the mirror. I reach for my tube of old faithful red lipstick, go in for the apply and Bam! Chapped lips from this wacky Florida weather (where one day I’m wearing a leather moto jacket and gloves and the next a bikini) leave me looking like I’m trying to put lipstick on asphalt. The lumps! The bumps! The ridges! I smack my head, reach for a cucumber wipey, smear the disaster off and swear I’m never going to bed without moisturizing my lips ever again. The downfall to being an avid red lipstick-wearer (and I mean like so avid I put it on every time I leave the house), is constantly battling chapped lips. There’s no room for error when red is your go-to. Just like that white tube dress, red shows where all the transgressions lie. In the same way Spanx are…Read More

Spilling Secrets

{Wearing: Bikini: Kai Lani from Blush. Hat: c/o Laundry by Shelli Segal.} Now that traveling is my new “thing,” I’m all about investigating resorts in fabulous places for my destination bucket list. I’ve recently set my sights on Secrets Resorts & Spas in Costa Rica, among its other numerous spots. I’ve never been to Costa Rica, but I’m hoping to change that. What drew me in to this oasis was its romance factor. The all-inclusive resort is a couples destination. I’m part of a couple, so that works. Plus, all the locales are in tropical beachy spots, which, yup, works, too. Toss in a welcome bottle of sparkling wine and fresh fruit, a mimosa breakfast in bed and romantic turndown service (part of the hotel’s Secrets To Romance package, which if you book between now and the end of the month you can enjoy anytime throughout 2016) and it’s as…Read More




{Wearing: Military Jacket with Hill Tribe embroidery from Chaing Mai, Thailand: PureFix by Tricia. Tee: Calypso St. Barth. Skirt: c/o H&M Shoes: Zara. Hair: Sassoon Miami.} I’m an old-school yogi and vegetarian, so doing nice things for the environment just kind of goes with the territory, which is why I identify with the brand PureFix by Tricia. She, too, believes in doing good things for Mother Earth, like recycling discarded fabrics and working with indigenous tribes across the globe. Her latest, this stunning military jacket, has Hill Tribe embroidery from Chaing Mai, Thailand. Thailand is on my travel bucket list, so, yeah, kismet. Speaking of doing good things for the planet, I decided to take Uber Pool the other day. I’ve pushed that button a few times in the past and no one ever shared the ride, so I had never really experienced it. I just kind of lucked out. This last time, however,…Read More

In the Trenches

{Wearing: Coat: c/o Laundry by Shelli Segal Fit and Flair Trench.  Shoes: Steve Madden Roebella Pumps.} Yesterday’s post I was in a bikini. Today I’m in a trench. Why? Because Florida. The weather here is as nuts as the “Florida man” headlines. But I digress. I’m actually thrilled to be wearing the trench. Normally, I shy away from cold weather. It’s the reason why I can’t do fashion week in New York in February. I just can’t do cold and be cute. And if I’m forced to, I end up looking like a homeless shelter dog who has taken every blanket donated to them and curled up into it. I will walk around like that. No shame. At all. Cold is not cute and neither am I when I’m forced to experience it. Thankfully, I have this Laundry by Shelli Segal trench to keep me warm during this Miami winter, which,…Read More
