Hello! My name is Aroon Duncanson, I am a 24 year old college graduate living in Miami, Florida pursuing my passion in PR and advertising!
After spending countless hours watching other lifestyle bloggers and beauty gurus, I thought it was time to start my own.
So July 2014 I decided to embark into the world of blogging and share my love for fashion, beauty and health.
As most of you know, I’ve been working with my mother, Megan Duncanson, for this last year and I could not be happier! We both started a vegan purse line, Livin’ the MAD Life, in January of 2018, and I’ve recently begun to help manage her art company MADART Studios. It has been super exciting, and a lot of new stuff going on!
I wanted to share a little video with some random work chats with myself, Aroon Duncanson and my mom, Megan Duncanson. Enjoy!
Now let me just say these shoes are the star of the show! I’m completely obsessed and they’re some of the comfiest heels I own! Living in Miami I walk A LOT and having comfy heels is key to surviving down here!
Recently I’ve been loving to add a watch to my looks, its a simple way to make your look more classy and sophisticated. And it’s a functional accessory!
I discovered JORD Watches and instantly fell in love with their brand, message and watches! JORD is known for their hand made, customizable wooden bands. When I tell you the packaging and watch smelled like it was take straight from the forest, I mean it!
I wanted to get a watch that would fit with my style, something not too small, but not too large and a metal that already matches the majority of jewelry I wear. So instantly the rose gold popped out to me! I find rose gold to be easy to style and the Koa wood band compliments the rose gold perfectly!
You can bet this watch is going to be making several appearances in my upcoming looks.
My watch is the Koa & Rose Gold from the CORA series. For each of the different woods used, JORD has created an amazing guide describing the wood and level of sustainability! You can see more here.
Koa is a finely ground golden wood, with rose tones. It is native to Hawaii and is their second most common tree, it is a flowering tree and is a part of the pea family! Koa means brave, bold, fearless and comes from the Hawaiian language.
This year for Miami Swim Week I kept things a little more low key and only attending a few events that were hosted by my close friends. One of said events was a pop-up at Moreno’s Cuba Restaurant in South Beach, hosted by Bikini On Demand. Where four different designers were showcasing their newest swimwear pieces.
Of course I couldn’t go to the event without sporting my new favorite look from Lilac and Lilies Boutique. The same boutique that styled by New York Fashion Week trip! And I have to say, these pants are some of my new favorites!
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to step into a real life Alice in Wonderland rabbit hole, La Muse Cafe is the place for you. It’s a combination of Avant Art Gallery and a gorgeous, whimsical cafe, located in the Epic Hotel in Downtown Miami.
Not only is the atmosphere a fairytale, but the food is incredible and way better than your typical American style cafe.
You guys, I think I’ve found my new favorite restaurant! Chotto Matte, off Lincoln Road Mall in South Beach. It’s a little hidden and off the main path, but once I stepped inside it was like walking into a whole different area. The design and decor inside is stunning, and the food was even better! If you’re into exotic cocktails and a contemporary sushi experience, Chotto Matte is right up your ally. I dined on their vegetarian bento box and the food it was phenomenal, already planning my next reservation asap!
