I’d like to think that it’s winter wonderland in Miami, but we all know that it’s very far from that here. Only in Miami you could wear dresses and booties for a coffee date during January. And, I must confess I was a little hot wearing these booties, but it’s all for the love of fashion, plus if I don’t wear these cuties out now, chances are they will collect dust in my closet till next year! How cute are these velvet beauties? They are so comfy and adds the right pop of color to my look. They also come in other colors and I’m swooning over the blush ones. What are you guys digging this time of year?  Whats your go-to look lately? Read More…

{ How to: Professional Blow Dry at Home }

Hey all,

Here’s a new year’s resolution of mine for ya… to share more hair tutorials with you all! I love trying different hair products and doing different styles to my hair, but don’t share it often, so for 2017 I’m starting a new series called #FancyHairFriday. Every Friday I will share a hair tutorial that is simple, fancy, and that you can do at home. If I can do it, so can you! Trust me, I’m not that good with hair, however, it is something I enjoy.

This hair tutorial is super easy and a must have for this series.

Hope you all enjoy this collection of videos and please give me suggestions for hairstyles you would like to see, and or learn how to do.

Who knew that I would like these metallic pleated skirts as much as I do! Like is really an understatement, I’m in LOVE. They are so fun, flirty, and super versatile. Really!! They can be paired with tennis shoes for a more casual look, booties for an edgier occasion and high heels for a fun night out. One skirt, three total different looks, vibes and occasions. I also picked up one in gold and I can’t wait to share it with you guys. Michael and I were on our way to a Friendsgiving dinner and I thought this look was perfect for a day with friends.

My favorite part about this look is definitely the finishing touches- I love how my Tous Icon Mesh jewelry added the right amount of glam. Such a magical collection and it has me feeling all kinds of ways. It’s so pretty, feminine chic, timeless and delicate. It’s also so dainty and reminds me of my childhood jewelry. Just obsessed! Can you tell? Did you notice how the zipper details on the bag are similar to the bracelets?? I’m all about the small details and the bag just tied the entire look together.

{ Lip Injections Vlog}

Hey friends!

Last week I visited Dr. Baumann’s Cosmetic & Research Institute located in the heart of Miami for some lip filler injectables. I wanted to try Volbella, the newest injectable that adds just a hint of subtle softness and fullness to the lips. A subtle look was critical to me too since I already have full lips, but you know us women always want a little bit more. I documented the entire process to share with you and I’m so excited the video is finally up and ready. If you are in the Miami area and interested in adding a little oomph to your lips, you should check out Dr. Baumanns office. You won’t be disappointed!

{ Macy’s December Shindigs!!}

img_2471

Hey friends! As Macy’s brand ambassador and as promised, here are all the fun things happening at the Macy’s store in Dadeland Mall this month! If you’re a foodie like me, you will love the first two events, but make sure to come see me on December 16th (last event).

Tomorrow, December 9th at 1pm there’s a really cool kids cooking class. We all want our kids to wake us up on a Saturday morning with the sweet words “breakfast is served” instead of them waking us up at 7am to make them breakfast, right? So run, don’t walk, and join the very own Macy’s Culinary Council, Chef Stephanie Izard, as we celebrate Believe Day and as she teaches us how to prepare some of her favorite kid-friendly dishes for the holidays. The best part? There will be plenty of food and drinks to enjoy, as well as live caroling by participating choirs of the Merrick Festival Caroling Competition! While at the store, feel free to explore the latest in cookware and gadgets for your kitchen and with any purchase of $35 or more in the Home department, receive a special gift bag filled with goodies, a chance to meet Chef Izard and take a photo with her.

*For this event, space is limited, please RSVP to reserve your seat to participate.

Location: 2nd Floor, Culinary Kitchen

Have you ever wondered what celebrities eat on a daily? Now it’s your chance to not only learn from one, but taste it. Saturday, December 10th at 4pm there’s a cooking demo with home cook and celebrity chef J. Santiago who was able to make a career out of her true passion in life. Chef J. Santiago has worked with Kyrie Irving, Kevin Hart, Floyd Mayweather and Fabolous, just to name a few. Come out and experience a few unique dishes that have made Chef J. Santiago a staple in the entertainment industry.

Location: 2nd Floor, Culinary Kitchen

Lastly, the annual Ugly Sweater Party, next Friday on December 16th at 6pm!!! Yes, partyyyyy. I’m so excited for this event and not just because I will be there partying it up with you all, but I got a really cute sweater to wear (pictured above). Actually, I got two. A girl needs options! #DontJudge They are both really cute “ugly” sweaters and I couldn’t decide on which one I loved more, so I got both. If you don’t have access to your grandma’s closet, not to worry. Macy’s has a huge collection of really cute “Ugly” sweaters, so pick yours out and join me. The best part and what I’m most excited about is that I’ll get to meet you, and the first 20 people to come and say hello to me at the event will receive a $20 Macy’s gift card! So make sure to come early! Bring your cameras so we can take a few selfies in our ugly sweaters.
