Miami Swim

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!

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

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.”

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.

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.

Check out our full collection here .
