A Reminder to Just Breathe

{Wearing: c/o Imbodhi Astra bodysuit. Necklace: c/o The Shift by Komusō Design. Photographed By Milly Jane Harris} Sometimes, when it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders and everything feels out of whack and you feel like ducking and running for cover, the most important thing to do is the thing you most often forget; to breathe. It sounds so simple and yet it’s not. Our body voluntarily does it for us for a reason. If left up to us, we’d be blue in the face—a lot. When I heard about The Shift by Komusō Design, a cylinder-shaped charm with holes that allows you to center your breath by simply breathing into it, I jumped at the chance to feature it. We all need a reminder to inhale the good and exhale the bad. And this is a beautiful, zen-filled way in which to do so. Plus,…Read More

THE FINDS: Valentine’s Day for Under $50

{Notecard Pack, White Orchid & Oud Candle, Rose Gold Heart Necklace, Message Board: c/o T.J. Maxx} I’m so excited to announce THE FINDS is back on the blog. And with Valentine’s Day but a few days away, what better time to find a variety of cute gift ideas for under $50? For this round, Milly and I stopped in at T.J. Maxx to see what would make a sweet gift. We found a packet of the cutest notecards with everything from butterflies to palm fronds. The white orchid and oud candle smelled so yummy we couldn’t pass it up. We’re both into message boards and we love how this one lights up. And would it really be VDay without a rose-gold heart necklace? The best part was we scoured all of this for $49. I know it sounds too good to be true, but check out the breakdown: This post…Read More

Hear This

{Wearing: Leggings: Liquido. TT-BH22 Active Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones: c/o TaoTronics. Photographed by Milly Jane Harris.}   I have freakishly small ears. There, I said it. And yes, I can hear out of them just fine, thank you. But what I can’t do is wear earbuds. They don’t fit into my ears. And on the off chance I can get them to stay, they always end up hurting after about 30 minutes. So when TaoTronics asked me to review their Bluetooth headphones, I thought, this probably won’t go very well. And then this happened: They sent noise cancelling bluetooth over-the-ear headphones. Given my “little issue,” you’d probably think why wouldn’t I be wearing those all along? Because, they hurt, too. Yup, that’s possible. They squeeze my ears against my head and then it’s just more of the same drama. It’s OK to laugh. I know how ridiculous this whole thing sounds….Read More

Take Your Vitamins

{Wearing: Bathing Suit: Bohemian Queen Brazenly Braided One Piece c/o Salty Mermaid. Earrings: Labradorite and Moonstone Hoops c/o Lexi Jewelry. Vitamins: c/o Care/Of. Photographed by Milly Jane Harris.} Take your vitamins, people. It’s cold and flu season out there. And after spending a weekend ravaged by stomach flu (yuck), I’m hopping on the vitamin train. This year, the flu has people in a full-blown panic.  If you have kids, go outside and breathe oxygen, chances are you’re going to get something. Unless, you do things to defend yourself. Consider taking vitamins like washing your hands for your insides. Plus, your mom will be happy you did it because it’s good for you. And I’m just guessing here, but you probably made some promise to yourself somewhere around late December of 2017 to do more things that are good for you. Taking vitamins, while good for what ails you and all that,…Read More

All Adidas Everything and the History of the Wynwood Boombox

{Wearing: Head-to-toe Adidas from ASOS. Photographed By Milly Jane Harris} If you’re going to wear head-to-toe Adidas, including an Adidas track suit, which I scored on super mega sale from ASOS, and take a pic of it, it’s probably best to head to that oversized boom-box over in Wynwood. Some things are just meant to be. Eons ago, someone had the where with all to turn a giant slab in Wynwood into a boombox. That someone’s name was Sonni, which he originally did in 2010. Originally, it was supposed to be a camera because of it’s shape, but in a way cooler twist of fate, it became a musical homage to the city. And then someone painted over it, as these things go. Another version of a boombox made it’s way to the same slab  in Basel 2013, courtesy of Chor Boogie and Trek 6. It’s a tribute to Miami’s history with…Read More

Extreme Beauty: Laser Facials vs Pigmentation

{Wearing: Top and shorts set: Market Miami. Shoes: Aldo. Hat: Voyage in Style. Glow By Vivid Face. Photographed By Jorge Camaraza} See that glow right there? That did not happen on its own. And it’s not Photoshopped either. It’s a year and change of keeping on top of my skin’s foibles with laser treatments at Vivid Face. While I’ve spent a lot of time trying to get my adult acne under control, I’ve finally reached a place where I think my hormones are going to chill out for a bit. (Please don’t let me curse myself by writing that.) But now I’ve realized, thanks to years of taking birth control and then not, I have pigmentation. Can a girl get a break? Actually, yes she can. By doing laser treatments I can get rid of acne scars and uneven complexion and reduce the appearance of pigmentation. Like I’ve said again and again,…Read More

Stepping Out in Andre Assous

{Wearing: Jacket: c/o Tricia Fix. Shoes: c/o Andre Assous Tamsin Nappa Sandal, available at Macy’s. Photographed By Milly Jane Harris.}   Oh Miami, and our unfulfilled fashion cravings. We long to wear boots, but your sweltering temps and humidity, you make it nearly impossible. Then, Andrea Assous comes along and creates sandals with a boot-ish feel and all is right in the Southernmost State. I’m loving these Tamsin Nappa Sandals. They go with jeans. They go with dresses. They go with shorts. You see where I’m going with this. They go with everything. And you can still show off whatever nail polish on your toes that trending. Finally, someone who gets a Florida girl’s footwear needs. Thanks, Andrea Assous. This post is sponsored by TaoTronics. The thoughts and opinions, well, those are mine. All mine.

Run Away to Turks and Caicos

And just like that another 365 passes us by. It’s funny, I started off 2017 in a foreign country. And I’m ending 2017 the same way I rang it in: Elsewhere. Abroad.  Who would have guessed, me, this girl who was terrified to leave Florida for eight years because I could not get myself on a plane, is now writing this from, actually, I don’t want to think about how many feet it is. I’m better, but I’ll never truly be comfortable with it.  Since it’s December 31 and all and I’m sitting on a plane headed off to a tropical paradise and feeling all nostalgic, now seems the the best time as any to tell the story of one of my most favorite trips of the past year. It was not too long ago that Jorge and I agreed to visit Turks and Caicos as part of a press…Read More

Extreme Beauty: Lip Injections

{Wearing: Jeans: c/o Lilac and Lilies Boutique. Top: c/o Lilac and Lilies Boutique. Necklace: c/o Yvonne Rose. Shoes: c/o T.J. Maxx. Bag: Vintage. Hair: c/o Contesta Rock Hair. Makeup: c/o Hippy Glow. Photographed by KarGar Ohh Snap at Espanola Way.} I recently got my lips done on a routine Botox visit at Smith & Popov. We filled my pucker up with Restylane and Volbella to give them shape and a little plump-ness. It wasn’t my first time at this lip rodeo, but a year had passed since the last time and I wanted them to look slightly more full, so I dove right in. Danielle just happens to be the lip queen. She goes for a natural look. And she’s very very good at it. These pics were taken about a week after I had my lips done. I’m very happy with the results. Unlike last time, I knew what to expect this time around,…Read More
