If you know me, you know I’m a true water baby! I’ve been dying without the beaches these last few months, but that did not stop me from trying new bikini brands.
I stumbled across this cute brand Ris.k, after seeing their Instagram account and beautiful designs and I knew I had to give them a try. And I have to say, they did not disappoint. I honestly think these are are some of the cutest, most comfortable suits ever! They are for sure my new favorite bikinis in my collection.
Back at it again with another must-have LBD! I’m telling you, Femme Luxe has to be one of my new go-to sites for affordable and trendy clothing. This beautiful black midi dress ties around the waist, exposed one sleeve, giving it a trendy edge and uniqueness from your standard little black dress. The material is extremely soft and stretchy, creating a flattering silhouette for all body types. I’m just waiting for the day social distancing ends so I can take this piece out for the night!
Of course, a little black dress needs a little black heel. If you saw my previous outfit post, you would know one of my good friends created this design with Cecconello Shoes and I’m obsessed. This heel height is perfect for me, and the faux leather is so soft and comfortable for wearing on long nights out. What’s your favorite place to shop for fun basics?
Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy! During our quarantining I’m trying to do my best at taking extra care of myself, including my skin. A big part of this is proper diet, lots of water and most importantly good skincare! I wanted to share my current must haves by one of my favorite brands Image Skincare. I’ve been a lover of this line for around 5 years now and am obsessed with their ORmedic line. My absolute must haves are the lip balm, it keeps my lips moisturized all day! And the total resurfacing mask, minimizes my pores, softens my skin and improves my skin tone.
I use the face wash morning and night, followed by the vitamin C. In the mornings I’ll use the SPF after the vitamin C.
2 or 3x a week I’ll alternate between the exfoliating wash and exfoliating mask to keep my skin smooth and glowy!
Can we take a moment to appreciate all of the shine going on in this photo. First off, I must say this dress is AMAZING quality and I will for sure be making this a new go-to piece. And paired with these cute, but glitzy, sandals, I couldn’t sparkle more. This was one of the most simple pieces to dress up and I am totally in love with this look. All pieces are linked at the bottom of this post.
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!
Currently obsessed with satin everything! This gorgeous and comfy satin top was the inspiration for this look, paired with basic black culottes and a hand painted original, vintage purse to pull it all together.
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.
I’m dying over this top from Ralph Lauren! It’s the perfect piece to dress up for a fancy night out, or to throw on some cute shorts and spend the day brunching it with your girls.
And I think I’ve found another favorite brunch spot, located in South Beach! If you’re looking for an authentic Italian bakery, where everyone is from Italy, then Sciuri Bakery is the place for you! They had the most amazing selection of baked goods, cakes, cookies, fudge, you name it! I don’t think I’ve ever had a cannoli so good! And they even have delicious lunch options like lasagna, pizza and, my favorite, the arancini! If this doesn’t sound good already, they even offered vegetarian options! I’ve definitely stumbled across a gem in South Beach!
I always love how each major city has their own little foreign pockets. Take, for example, Little Italy in New York or China Town in San Fransisco. And here in Miami Beach, we have Española Way. Our little Spanish quarter in the middle of the hustle and bustle.
With the amazing Spanish restaurants, foreign music and Spain’s architecture, it’s like we took a trip back to Spain.
Española Way is definitely one of my favorite little spots in Miami Beach, and a great place to visit if you’re ever this way! Or if you’re just looking for a delicious Nutella filled croissant.
Española Way, in Miami Beach, has always been one of my favorite little spots to visit. The pink walls, hidden corridors and Spanish music, really make it feel like you’ve travelled to Europe!
And what better way to experience it, than with a little staycation at the El Paseo hotel! Right in the hustle and bustle, with the cutest little balconies and coffee room, it made for the perfect spot!
A cute little greeting, some yummy biscotti, a fresh cup of coffee, and I felt right at home!
