The Seekender’s Guide to Miami Beach

{Photographed by Jorge Camaraza}  Summer, the season of travel. A time to go see the world, do something new, scratch something off that bucket list you’ve been carrying around. This summer, while I’m running off to see corners of the world, others will make their way to this little plot of sand I call home. As much as I love helpful hints on where to go and what to see on my journeys, I feel its only fitting for me to do the same of my own city. That being said, welcome to Miami Beach. As a Seekender for Hampton by Hilton, I’ve traveled most of my adventures via motorcycle, seeing Colorado and the Pacific Coast Highway via Indian bike. If you’re on your own Hampton by Hilton Seekender journey, keep in mind Miami Beach is great via bike, too. But this terrain calls for bicycle instead of something with…Read More

It’s called BlueMercury, and if you aren’t familiar with it just yet, get so sooner than later.

Coverup: c/o Laundry by Shelli Segal. Bikini: c/o Ark Swimwear. Photographed by Milly Jane Harris} It’s unofficially summer, which means two things: It’s vacation time! You need a new bag. That second point is why you’re here today. As luck would have it, Sawgrass Mills asked me to partner with them for its Annual Bag Sale, which Milly and I had a blast shopping at last week. From May 26 until June 30, Sawgrass Mills is offering spectacular discounts on purses so you can find the perfect bag.  The team at Sawgrass put together a trend card, which you can score from the mall’s brand ambassadors so you can get the scoop on the latest “it” bags, and then…Read More

Extreme Beauty: Laser Facial Part Five

{Wearing: My Home Fashion Boutique Sweater. Hair: c/o Glamsquad with Vanessa Placeres. Makeup: c/o Glamsquad with Celina Beach Artistry. Photographed by Danielle Margherite Photography LLC} What is it about Bahamian ocean water that makes skin so good? Is it the water? The salt in the water? The sand? Whatever it is, after a weekend jaunt to Bimini and a round of Vivid Face laser facials (smooth mixed with an acne-targeting treatment), I’m ready to put my best face forward for summer. My last round of laser facials really did a world of good. Whatever was beneath the surface got stopped right in its tracks, which sent me to Bimini with clear skin. And once those magical ocean waters got on my skin, well, I’ve been roaming around foundation-free ever since. Maybe a little It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream here and there, but that’s about it. As I’ve mentioned before, these facials from Vivid Face are really helping my skin…Read More

Colorado, Here We Come: Let’s Go Spring Skiing

Here’s the thing about Miami come spring. Actually, come the first hint of spring. It’s hot. And it gets hotter out of nowhere. Like today, in June, when its hard to tell the difference between the surface of the sun and Miami. Knowing this, when the opportunity to be a Seekender again for Hampton by Hilton arose, we opted to ditch the bike and bring along the whole crew. The thing about traveling is, it’s selfish to keep it to yourself. What’s beautiful about seeing the world is sharing it with the people you love. So instead of a Seekender adventure for two, ours became an adventure for five. One of which we’re hard-pressed to peg down in photos as he’s in the teenage years and raging against the social media machine. Rare sightings of the elusive Julien will make their way into this tale as its told, so keep…Read More

That’s a Wrap: MKT by Baz Baz

{Wearing: Leggings and top: LiquidoActive. Photographed by Adorned Photography.} Exploring ways to make not just ourselves, but the community we live in thrive is awesome, which is why I happily joined forces to help promote MKT by bazbaz. If you’ve been here recently, you’ll notice I have more than a few posts dedicated to it. What Albert and his team have done is really special. It says Miami has grown up a lot. And as much as we like dancing, clubs and music, we also see the bigger picture about taking care of ourselves and the place we live. It’s about supporting local businesses that use organic products. It’s about supporting local yoga studios, where you’ll learn how to exhale all that stress that’s causing your shoulders to cramp up. It’s about making a connection with our community. If you didn’t get a chance to make it to the final edition…Read More

Extreme Beauty: Laser Facial Part Four

{Wearing: My Home Fashion Boutique Top and Denim. Hair: c/o Glamsquad with Vanessa Placeres. Makeup:c/o Glamsquad with Celina Beach Artistry. Photographed by Danielle Margherite Photography LLC} It’s back to the laser facials. Why? Because they are awesome. And the treatments at Vivid Face are helping me through a skincare issue that’s been driving me bonkers for some time now. As luck would have it, the pore-perfect skin I had as a teen and first-half-of-my-life adult decided to betray me in the most annoying way possible. As I’ve started to reach the tail end of my 30s, I, for the first time ever, have been dealing with acne. Yes, the pleasures of adult acne. Like really? Now? As I’m knocking on 40s door? Grrrrreat. The issue started about a year and a half ago. A blemish here, a pimple there. And then bam, my whole chin was a bumpy mess. And not the kind that are easy to hide either. We’re…Read More

That’s a Wrap: Looking Back at MKT’s Balance & Connect Edition

This past Saturday, I got the amazing opportunity to stand in front of an audience and share what wellness means to me, thanks to MKT by bazbazaz‘s Balance & Connect edition, the open-air market in Wynwood that focuses on sustainability. And it was awesome. For me, wellness is a harmony of eating well, exercise and reducing stress. While all of that sounds picture perfect, actually creating a balance and connecting with it, well, that’s where things get tricky. It’s not easy at all to find balance. It’s work. And that’s why we brought in experts to help us find  way to connect with the good stuff, the stuff that makes you feel good. Rodrigo Martinez from Jucy Lu stepped up to the mic to talk about how juicy can get your mind, body and spirit in a better place. We based GMOs, we praised organic, we talked about how much energy the…Read More
