The Power of Red

Every working girl needs a power suit. Whether you’re a Realtor® (like me), an artist, an attorney, or even a barista – a chic suit that makes you feel like a million bucks is a must. When Express sent over their September look book I knew this fire engine red suit just had to be mine.  You could say red is my color; I’m obviously not one to shy away from a bold style statement. While I typically have to invest in tailoring my clothes, I was impressed to find this set fit like a glove right off the rack. (Yipee!!) For a blazer and pant that both ring up under $200, that’s a major steal. On this day I was hosting an open house at a gorgeous multi-million dollar condo in Coconut Grove and I felt both chic and confident, something you can never put a price tag on. (In case you’re wondering, the condo at Residences at Vizcaya is available for a cool $4.2 Million.)

Back to Cool in Black x White


It's been a while since I was in grade school, but this outfit made me a little nostalgic. Not sure if it was the cute cap-toe shoes or the romper/button down combo, but I guess 'tis the season. The only thing I was studying on this day was the beautiful spa at the Biltmore Hotel. The iconic building is one of my favorite places in Coral Gables, and I'm lucky to have it right in my backyard. Plus, it's the perfect location for photos ops. So natch when I invited my girl Andrea to check out the Beauty Booked party with me last week we had to stop to take a few snaps.... and make a wish in the fountain.

Glow by Valmont x The Spa at Vicerory Miami

My skincare regimen is undoubtedly the most important part of my beauty routine. Now that I'm in my late twenties, I've moved beyond over-the-counter creams and serums and think it's important to start focusing on "preventative" products. While some of my girlfriends are starting to dabble in botox and other injectables, that's not for me. (Not to say that I wouldn't go there later on in life. Never say never.) Recently, I was invited to The Spa at Viceroy Miami to experience a Renewing Facial and enjoyed a peaceful afternoon in the chic Philippe Stark designed spa. I love spa-ing, (is that a word?) but this was unlike any facial I've ever had. The magic happens when the Valmont Renewing Pack is applied. The luxe cream is applied in a thick layer to cover the face completely, which both hydrates and repairs. You immediately feel a refreshing tingling sensation as the active ingredients oxygenate your skin and leave you looking fresh and glowing.  The Swiss company was founded back in 1905 as a prestigious health and wellness clinic, but over the years shifted its focus to the beauty industry, "to offer utmost anti-aging products with visible and long lasting efficacy."  The science behind the products lie in active molecules - like DNA and native collagen - which aid in skin regeneration. 
This was my first experience with Valmont products and it made me a firm believer in cellular skincare. Now I use my Valmont Prime Renewing Pack as a weekly face mask, or whenever I'm feeling dull or stressed. The at-home experience doesn't compare to being at the Viceroy Spa, but the results will have everyone wondering if you were!
