The Mother/Daughter Duo

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!

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.

La Muse Cafe

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.

Miami Summer Collection

TRAVELLOGO

Livin’ the MAD Life has now launched our newest collection “Miami Summer” and can I just say, I am totally in love with every piece from this collection! Especially the “Melon Jolly” Travel Bag. I can’t wait until my next trip to sport around my matching handbag, travel bag and cosmetic case. If this doesn’t say Miami, I don’t know what does!

And I’m also in love with the lemons, for a more classy look. I’ve been carrying around my “Summer Citrus” Classic Handbag for the last few weeks, and it’s the easiest bag to style and wear with any look!_Aroon0 88_Aroon0 4_Aroon0 214_Aroon0 159Photo Jun 09, 9 50 46 AM_Aroon0 185_Aroon0 58Photo Jun 09, 9 58 47 AM

The Best Bra Ever

So we all know the “free the nip” movement, which I’m all for. Comfort is key. But sometimes a good bra is needed from time to time.

I used to stick to a classic Victoria’s Secret bra, like most of us. But a couple of months ago  I decided to try out Upbra. I ordered the nude, both with strap and strapless, finding a good strapless bra is always a struggle, so I wanted to test these out and see if they could get the job done.

And let me tell you, I am obsessed! Coming from a girl who usually does not wear a bra, I have been wearing these all the time! The strapless is by far my favorite, because it actually gives you support, lift and fits with all of my styles of top. Upbra honestly made me prefer to wear a bra again, which is a major deal for me! Hahaha

 

And you guys know me, I always have to share the amazing finds I come across, and I don’t think there has been a day so far, that I haven’t used one of my Upbra’s.

Blue Flirt

One of the great things about being a blogger in Florida, is the ability to post both fall and summer looks year round! And yes, you will probably find that I do often use this to my advantage. Guiltyyy!

Either way, who could resist such a cute matching set, like this one from SheIn!

I would personally style this piece with a bikini underneath, as a day beach cover up. But who’s to say this would not also be perfect for a hot day exploring the town, or a fun little get together with the girls, for brunch.

And every cute look is never complete without a simple accessory to go with it. It feels like marble has been a huge hit since I can remember, but I am not complaining. These adorable, marble, tasseled earrings, from Freshy Fig, go perfectly with any look!
