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!
What better way to say happy holidays than some red velvet booties and a sweater dress?! Now I have to be honest, I have never actually worn or own a sweater dress, until this one I recently acquire, from Tobi. And can I just say, this is the most functional, cozy piece ever! I would be completely satisfied if I only ever wore sweater dresses for the rest of the year!

Totally living for this bell sleeved strapless top from Tobi!
It’s trendy, it’s easy to wear and it’s perfect for this time of year! Even with these bell sleeves it’s still super simple to throw on a jacket, like this metallic green one.
And of course I had to throw in the shorts for that Floridian style.
