Models in Bimini

I was fortunate enough to take a mini vacation to the gorgeous island Bimini a very, very small island, part of the Bahamas. Bimini is only 60 miles off the coast of Miami, which takes approximately 2 hours on a ferry or 30 minutes by seaplane.

The waters were exactly as you would imagine, bright turquoise and cerulean blue shades. The mode of transport was a golf cart, and it took only 10 minutes to get to one side of the island to the other. That being said, the resort I stayed in was the only resort on the island, Resort World Bimini, apart of the Hilton chain.

This trip was definitely one for the books, I was traveling with some fellow Miami models, also signed with DAS Models. We recently participated in Hawkers Model Volleyball, an annual volleyball tournament, held in South Beach, for local Miami model agencies and their signed models. Prize for the top four teams was an all expense paid trip to Bimini! My teammates and fellow models were nothing short of amazing, and the trip would not have been nearly as memorable without this group of people.

Already on the countdown for next years Hawkers Model Beach Volleyball.

Travel Guide | You have to try the fresh conch and lobster salad at Joe’s or Stuarts Conch Shack. Must visit the wreck at the southern end of the island. Edith’s pizza was a fan favorite. Luna Beach is a great place for some yummy food, drinks and lounging on the beach.

Red in the City

Not sure if you can tell… But red is my favorite color, and this red Lilac and Lilies dress was one of the most flattering pieces I wore during my NYFW events. And it perfectly paired with the Frida Kahlo purse, which I received endless compliments on.

Reel Skipper

Reel Skipper has finally launched their Spring/Summer 2018 collection and I am obsessed! I was lucky enough to work with the amazing gals behind the brand and shoot their look book for this collection, and instantly fell in love with the pieces! My absolute favorite from the collection are the striped swim bottoms “Flamingo Beach” and striped shorts “Biscayne Water Shorts.”

Big Boots for a Big City

Another night in New York for New York Fashion Week. More amazing designers and more amazing food and wine! These boots were most definitely the show stopper of my look for this nights shows. Finding thigh high boots, that are actually thigh high on me, are a bit of a struggle, as I am 5 11′ and my legs are a bit longer than the average gal. Needless to say, I was one happy camper when I saw these maroon babes while shopping in SoHo. And once again, with a Lilac and Lilies favorite dress. This single strapped, suede material dress was a show stopper!

Another great spot, not vegan, but a really cool atmosphere restaurant is Cipriani. The Hadid sisters were dining in Cipriani Downtown with us this same night, a celebrity favorite.

The Big City

This night in NYC was a particularly freezing one, that my Miami blood was not prepared for. But that aside, we watched one of the most entertaining fashion shows, the YEROC by Corey Woods. The pieces were fantastic and the performance was one for the books.

We found another amazing vegan restaurant, that I wish would make its way down South. Blossoms, was my all time favorite restaurant for the trip, the full menu was vegan and their Truffle, Mushroom Pizza was insanely delicious!

My look for this nights show was one of my favorite pieces from Lilac and Lilies Boutique, in Fort Lauderdale Florida, this flattering white dress. Paired with our Livin’ the MAD Life “Winter Sparkle” tote.

Our trip for New York Fashion Week was nothing less than wonderful. We tried some amazing vegan foods, enjoyed stunning runway shows and explored parts of the city that we have never been to.

This day was my Zara look, I wanted something fun and classy, but wearable. Which is why I went with a chunky heeled bootie, to carry me around the city for a full day.

We spent most of the day in SoHo, aka South of Houston rd., and it was the most charming little space! We stopped by Bulletin.Co, a female empowering, pink wonder world, that needs to be experienced at least once! And we ate at By.CHLOE for breakfast and lunch! It’s so nice having full vegan restaurants at the tip of your fingers, it makes ordering much more simple! blog2

Frida Kahlo Collection | Livin’ the MAD Life

As some of you know, my mother and I recently started a designer bag and purse brand in January 2018. And today marks another amazing day for our company, Livin’ the MAD Life, we have launched a new capsule collection, inspired by the amazing Frida Kahlo!

We wanted to create a capsule collection focused solely on the importance of empowering women. In today’s society we have an incredible movement for female empowerment and we want to do as much as we can to fuel the fire, for women around the globe. We wanted to choose someone who was seen as a strong women from history, whether past or present, who epitomized strength, grace and inspiration. Someone who didn’t take no for an answer and gave society inspirational goals and a “can do” attitude, not letting anything hold them back. A “warrior” who fought the battle for feminism and misogyny and forged an easier path for all of us to continue to make headway towards equality. That is why we have decided to create a capsule collection around the ever inspiring, Frida Kahlo. She is one of the most inspirational artists for women, a woman who endured so much in her life and yet willingly shared her pain and how she overcame and dealt with the struggles through her art and life.
