Because I’m Happy—Tous Happy Moments Giveaway

{Tous Happy Moments Perfume and Necklace.} It’s summer, which makes me happy. The weather, the sunshine, the beach, not having to drag a kiddo out of bed and off to school—it all culminates to fill me with bliss and endless happy moments. What I’m most excited about is pulling suitcases out of the top of the closet and filling them more than a few times this summer. The wanderlust is coursing through my veins. I’m ready to see new parts of the world, taste their flavors, see new sights and make new moments. Since the summer is all about making memories and moments, I thought it would be fitting to share a bottle of Tous’ Happy Moments with one of my readers. Not only does Tous have beautiful and fun baubles, like my cute arrow necklace, it also has a host of fun fragrances, just waiting to be worn on…Read More



Down in New Orleans

{Wearing: One of a Kind Crop Top & Shorts: c/o Krel. Booties: Target (yes, Target). Sunnies: Aldo. Bag: c/o T.J. Maxx. Photographed by Jorge Camaraza.} I’m going to admit something that jiggles my own mind: Up until a wee bit ago I had never been to New Orleans. OK, so? A lot of people haven’t been there. But I grew up a portion of my life in Destin, Florida, which is a hop, skip and jump away. My entire high school went there for Mardi Gras, for weekends, for whatever. And in return all of New Orleans came to Destin for spring break and summer vacays. The two cities have a symbiotic relationship that I got a one-sided deal from. For whatever reason, I never made the trip. It just never happened. The last car to New Orleans was always in drive without me in it. Until recently. When a friend…Read More

0 Marks the Spot

{Wearing: Blush Romper. Necklace: Vintage. Wedges: Steve Madden. Photographed by Jorge Camaraza.} That’s me jumping on the bed, like I do anytime I check into a hotel. The chic teal robe? It belongs to The Marker Resort Key West, the stunning resort that took me in for a relaxing weekend excursion. I haven’t been to Key West in over a decade, so it was amazing to revisit a place I’ve always had a soft spot for. Only this go-round was different from past trips. Getting there happened via motorcycle. I’ve never done that before. I’ve never even ridden on a bike in Miami. To feel the warm air, as opposed to the mountain air I’ve gotten used to feeling, was spectacular, a change of pace. Riding over the 7 Mile Bridge, surrounded by water, sunset looming—postcard status. Wish you were here. We brought the bike to a halt as we neared…Read More



And Now a Post on the Importance of Deodorant …

{Introduced by Simply Stylist, I’ve partnered with Dove to make the #EssentialUpgrade to an antiperspirant that can go as long as 48 hours, moisturizes and smells amaze.} Deodorant, it’s not really something you think about—aside from when you need to restock—but it’s definitely something you don’t want to live without. Especially in Miami. For obvious reasons. Turns out, as I learned at a recent Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant event, there’s more to a stick of deodorant than meets the, well, underarm. Since skin is summer’s never-ending trend, I want to make sure mine is soft and smooth for the season, which is why I’ve opted to do some laser hair removal (more to come on that soon). I shared all of this with Dr. Barba of Barba Skin Cinic during a wonderful exfoliating session at the event. After hearing my story, she suggested I chuck my current deodorant and give Dove…Read More

Doorstep Dining

{Lunch courtesy of Fresh is Better.} Hello, my name is Ginger and I do not cook. I do not want to cook. I do not have time to cook. I just want food to magically arrive when I’m hungry or need to feed the people around me. Guess what? That’s a thing! This past week the peeps behind Fresh is Better (FIB) delivered three days worth of meals to my doorstep each morning. All I had to do was go online, pick my food genre (traditional, paleo,vegetarian or gluten-free) and size preference and tada, daily meal delivery pre-dawn that consisted of breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks. No cooking, no dishes, no stress. Just three squares made from fresh ingredients. With portion control, fresh ingredients and now-ability (meaning I’m not shoveling cookies in my mouth while I wait for something to get delivered), I’m on the road to healthy eating for summer’s bikini…Read More

Taking the Plunge with #MarshallsSurprise

{Wearing: Neon Mix and Match High-Waisted Bikini: c/o Marshalls. Snorkel Mask: c/o Marshalls. Photographed By Jorge Camaraza.} Marshalls recently asked me to be part of a blogger challenge where the goal was to shop for items that inspire you to try something new. Since trying new things has kind of been my theme for the past few years now here on the blog, I gladly accepted. And I knew exactly what to look for as I stepped into the Marshalls at Midtown Miami. An upcoming trip to Key West meant I’d have a chance to go snorkeling. So, I searched through the racks for a cute new bikini and snorkel gear, finding both successfully. I absolutely love this bright, bold high-waisted bikini. I found it by mixing two different ones together, so now I have two new bikinis to enjoy. Ultimate bonus: the snorkel gear matches. So why is snorkeling…Read More



White Hot Summer

{Wearing: White Rouched Dress: c/o T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. Shoes: Steve Madden. Necklace: c/o Delicate Raymond. Photographed by Jorge Camaraza.} In neighboring lands there’s a tradition Miamians have a hard time wrapping their heads around. In these far off places people actually stop wearing white from Memorial Day until Labor Day. Gasp! I know. Why? Some fashion rule created by people who obviously never lived in the tropics. But, I do live in Miami, where white is a staple year-round. Why? Because it’s hot. It’s almost always hot. And if we ran around in greys and navys and blacks in that non-white-wearing window, we’d melt. I mean, more often then not we rock bikinis on in mid-December. Whiteouts don’t apply in these parts. But elsewhere in the world they do. T.J. Maxx and Marshalls did a survey to find out when most women start to whitewash their wardrobes. Turns out, 63…Read More



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.
