Late Summer

One of the great things about living in Florida, despite all of the natural disasters mother earth has been bestowing on us, is the fact that we can enjoy a sunny beach day even in the middle of November. That being said, the swimsuit shopping is never over. And these two suits are such a crazy bargain, I could not pass up the deal.

Itsy Bitsy Yellow Bikini

Found my new favorite bikini color, yellow! Absolutely in love with the fit of this bikini. It can sometimes be a bit of a risk to get bikinis from a company who doesn’t specialize in bikinis. But I’m absolutely thrilled with this one from Romwe and will definitely be purchasing more and saving a lot.

I’m also loving their retro styled sweaters, it may still be blazing hot here in Miami, but it’s never too early to stock up on some cute sweaters.

Lila Nikole Swim Show 2018

Once again I've had the pleasure of walking for the amazing Lila Nikole. She released her new 2018 designs at no better place than Swim Week Miami.
And she had even expanded to men's wear and mommy & me suits!

Of course I had to share some memorable images from the show.

Till next year!

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.

Europe 2017

The last 15 days I have had the most amazing experience, traveling, with one of my best friends, through two continents, 5 countries and 10 different cities! Needless to say, it’s been a lot of siteseeing and very little sleep. 

I wanted to share some of my favorite memories during the trip and some must see places you have to visit if you’re ever in these areas! (Images are titled with the location.)

AmsterdamOur first stop was Amsterdam! Of course we had to stop and take a picture with the ever famous “I Amsterdam” letters. But the most memorable, and one of my favorite places during the whole trip was when we took an hour bus to Keukenoff to visit the tulip festival! The tulip festival is every year between April 1- May 13.Places to visit// Keukenoff Garden, Bulldog Cafe, Redlight District

Paris

Paris has to be one of my top favorite places we visited during the 2 week trip. Although we hardly met anyone who spoke English. 

There is endless amounts to see and such amaizng food. My absolute favorite part of Paris was watching the Eiffel Tower twinkle in the middle of the night. 

Places to visit// Eiffel Tower after 9pm and walking the stairs, The Lourve, George’s Restaurant, Norte Dame and Sainte Chapelle

London

From Paris to London we took the underground Chunnel (the train that goes under the English Channel.) 

London was not quite as I expected, it was a bit like New York and quite a lot of the people were not the most friendly. But nevertheless it was still an amazing expericne. My absolute favorite place in London and one of my most favorite memories of the trip was visiting the royal jewels at the London Tower. Unfortunately not phones were allowed in the Royal Jewels chamber, but trust me when I say it is more than you could ever imagine! 

Places to visit// The London Tower (Royal Jewels), The Renaissance Hotel, The London Eye, Changing of the Guards, Big Ben, A Play (we watched Wicked,) National Museum

Ireland

I know I’ve said all of these places are my top favorites, but the Cliffs of Moher were the highlight of the trip! The cliffs are off the coast of Shannon, the west side of Ireland, and 100% worth the trip.Places to visit// Cliffs of Moher, Guinness Facotory, must eat: Fish and Chips

Barcelona

Now Barcelona is the one place that I instantly fell in love with and would love to move here one day. There is endless amounts to do and such beautiful scenery and history around every corner. 

While in Spain we spent two nights in Barcelona, 2 nights is Llafranc and 2 nights in a remodeled castle, Mas Torroella, set ontop of a mountain. And our last night was in a little coastal town south of Barcelona. 

Places to visit or try// Park Guell, Sagrada Familia, Boating off the coast of Llafranc, Sangria, Park de la Ciutadella

Its remarkable how much you learn while traveling the world. I definitely caught the travel bug during this trip, and ready for the next adventure.

The Versace Mansion

The Versace Mansion

Formerly known as the Versace Mansion, The Villa Casa Casuarina is definitely a must see destination, only steps away from Miami Beach. Although the only way to take a peek inside of the mansion is through a dinner reservation at Gianni’s, a booked stay at one of the ten different suites, or some other form of reservation, you should take any opportunity you have to explore the amazing grounds.

Today, I was lucky enough to spend the morning exploring the mansion and snapped some images; from the Azure suite, to the stunning pool made of 24 karat gold! I was definitely itching to jump in the pool with this crazy Florida summer heat, next time I’ll remember to pack a swimsuit.
