December 11, 2016

With Art Basel being one of the busiest times of year in South Florida a few days (or a week in my case) of R&R  are much needed to recover!  Here’s a mini-recap of my week along with some tips so you too can Basel like the pros. Do Your Research This year a few people reached out wondering: a) How I knew about so many events? & b) How to get in without having an invite? Simple! Aside from the events I received…

Friendsgiving Fun

November 12, 2016

Where has the year gone?! It’s crazy to believe we’re just two weeks away from Thanksgiving!  Although a holiday mostly reserved for spending time with your family; myself like most others are equally grateful for their friends & colleagues. So how do you get the best of both worlds? Easy, host a Friendsgiving dinner either the Wednesday before or the Friday after Thanksgiving. This is one of my favorite holidays especially since over the years a friend of mine & her mom would host…

Miami Broward Carnival 2016 | Recap

October 15, 2016

Despite the scare of Hurricane Matthew causing a shift of events, this year’s Carnival was definitely one for the books! Machel Montano’s “Waiting on the Stage”  (song in recap video) was a huge hit for a majority of the mas bands this year as they displayed their vibrant costumes to the judges in hopes of securing Band of the Year with One Island Mas Band taking home the title again. Between all the performances, great food, and vibes you’ll want to make sure to join in…

Hello Autumn

September 29, 2016

Congrats, you’ve made it through the brutal summer heat! Even though in South Florida it’s only about 3 degrees cooler than before, it’s time to bring out the Pumpkin flavored everything and maybe have a legit attempt to order a hot beverage from Starbucks as we prepare for the infamous Florida winter (it was like 61 last year, don’t judge us).   With the change of weather, it’s time for all the single ladies & gents to face cuffing season yet again. Personally, I’ve only been through it once and epically failed so I’m grateful that it…

Miami Broward One Carnival being just a mere 29 days away brings even more excitement this year as myself and a very intimate group of fellow South Florida bloggers, creatives, & media were given a sneak peek of the new MiamiBrowardCarnival.com  atop the breathtaking rooftop of the Betsy Hotel.

The Fit Life

August 8, 2016

Being in the events/hospitality industry there’s always the struggle of staying fit & eating right due to indulging on small bites at work or events.   While scrolling through the explore page on Instagram there was a post from the Fit Girls Guide (FGG) of a food shot one could easily mistake for a restaurant dish. While looking into it further and discovering more food shots mixed with unicorn glitter, and some major fitspo of women with unbelievable result photos this was definitely something I wanted to try.…

Summer Must-Haves

June 18, 2016

Being in Miami where it’s already been a mix of scorching hot days, torrential downpours, and humidity so thick you can slice it with a knife; leaves little excitement for the official first day of Summer this Monday. Kicking it off with my travel plans to Curaçao next weekend, here are 5 of my absolute must-haves!  #1 & 2 – Sunnies & Sandals Although these items are pretty obvious because you need to avoid the dreaded squinty eye while showing off your freshly pedicured piggies. Summer is a great time to experiment with funky colors &…
