Back to Cool in Black x White


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. 


All Tied Up: Pre-Fall Shoe Trends

It's Shoesday Tuesday so I thought I'd share some new favorites I just added to my shoe closet this week. (I'm a shoe hoarder - check my twitter profile.)


For the Love of Shoes | 9West & InStyle Launch Party at Dadeland Mall
When I was a kid I loved back to school season solely because of back to school shopping and, of course, new shoes. Mom knew that shiny new kicks were a great educational tool. Smart lady. Now as an adult any excuse is good enough for new shoes! Wouldn't you love to be rewarded for your shoe shopping addiction? It's totally happening this Thursday, August 21st, at Dadeland Mall. Join 9West and InStyle Magazine to celebrate the launch of their exclusive Fall shoe collaboration and you'll go home with a luxe swag bag of InStyle approved goodies in addition to your sweet new footwear. (While supplies last.) The party starts at 6PM at the Nine West store!
Make your feet happy. RSVP to

Misfit Right In

I used to despise skinny jeans. True story! They didn’t make me feel “skinny” at all, but rather self-conscious about my curvy and petite frame. Recently I’ve had a change of heart about skinnies, partly because part of me changed. It was a little more than a year ago that I switched up my fitness routine and started working with my friend and personal trainer Monika Paez of Bella Forma Fitness. At the time, I had a fancy gym membership and would go to yoga and pilates sporadically, but I hated working out. (I’d be lying if I said I actually like it now, LOL.) With a little dedication and consistency Monika helped me say “peace out!” to my thunder thighs, and I gained the confidence to rock super skinny denim without hang-ups. I’m currently living in these high-rise denim leggings by Express, which are just as comfy, yet more stylish, than actual leggings. They’re a great alternative to yoga pants when you’re having a low-key day or have errands to run before you hit the gym. That was the case when I wore this faux-leather trimmed version last week before trying Exhale Spa’s cardio barre class at the Loews Miami Beach.

P.S. Exhale’s cardio barre class will also help get you into your skinny jeans. Holy workout.
