Miami Swim Week SI & Funkshion

July 20, 2017

Last night I was lucky enough to see Sports Illustrated new girls walk the runway at The W Hotel in South Beach.

And shortly after, I skipped across the street to the Funkshion tent to watch some amazing new designers walk their new collection on the runway. And ran into the lovely Lila Nikole, who I'll be walking for this Saturday.

Summer Secrets

I’m always looking for new, boutique swim and clothing brands. Because no one wants to show up at the beach wearing the same bikini as every other girl. 

This summer I’m definitely keeping my eye on Mademoiselle Louise Deisgns, a French swim and lingerie designer in Miami Beach. 

You can check out her etsy store here! And her Instagram @mademoiselle_louise_designs

Summer PreperationĀ 

Today’s post was inspired by the incredibly hot, hundred degree weather we are experiencing in South Beach.

Summer is just around the corner and it’s always nice to get prepared ahead of time. So I’ve linked some of my favorite summer products to keep you glowy this season! As well as some of my favorite summer tips. 

Glowy skin// 

My absolutely favorite product for glowy skin is bio oil! You can use it all over your body as well as your face, to give your skin that extra boost and moisture it craves. 

I’ve also made up my own concoction of body oil. Inside i mixed coconut oil // vitamin e oil // green tea tree oil // rose hip oil // bio oil. I use this little concoction before bedtime to allow my skin to absorb all of the amazing vitamins and  nutrients!

SPF! SPF! SPF! I’ve always used SPF on my face because I was always told that you needed too. But recently I’ve realized just how important it is. That being said, I’ll never go a day without SPF on my face. If I do miss a day, I’ll notice a complete difference in my skin and pigmentation. My favorite is Dermalogica SPF 50.


Summer tip//

Join a gym that has a variety of class, to allow you to mix up your routine and stay motivated! I recently joined my local Equinox gym, and I’m absolutely obsessed! Gotta get summer beach body ready, am I right?!

Drink lots of water! I try to drink at least a gallon a day, and I notice a huge difference from drinking lots of water. Benefits I’ve experienced are, flatter tummy, healthy skin, energy and appetite control. I mean, our bodies are mostly made of water, so shouldn’t we try to drink lots of it? šŸ˜›
