Rebel







Although I love to dress up regularly, dressing down in black is also a must. Black on black seems to be everyone's go-to Fall color palette, and you can't really go wrong with it. When you can't figure out what to wear or it seems as though there's nothing in your closet, black is the best selection. I like to layer up with different textures and patterns for a little depth (with a touch of gold of course). I'm also in love with these black caged boots from Hot Miami Styles.

Blue Streak

As a 4-year-old living in Miami Beach, life doesn't get much better



As a 4-year-old living in Miami Beach, life doesn't get much better.

Taejin Jay's typical daily routine consists of a 6:30am wake-up call, throwing on his school uniform for the day, grabbing a delicious lunch a la carte, and then it's back home for an outfit change. He's particular about his hats, sunglasses, and shoes. Of course, these black Air Jordan Retro 8's caught his eye at Finish Line because they are versatile and can be worn with any look. In the afternoon, we usually end up roaming Lincoln Road Mall, playing in the park, heading to the pool or beach, and snacking on about six tangerines (he has a crazy obsession with tangerines now). 







What Taejin's rocking:

Jeans by ZARA
Shoes by Air Jordan / Nike c/o Finish Line
Hat by New Era

Valentine's Day Gift Guide: For Her



Valentine's Day is right around the corner, which can be quite tricky to shop for. Whether you've been with your significant other for four days or four years, there's something for everybody. The difficult part is attempting to figure out what suits that special lady in your life (your girlfriend, wife, partner, BFF, dog). For example, you don't want to miss the concept completely and overlook the situation, but you could also misread the connection and go over the top. Although I'm pretty sure going over the top doesn't apply in many cases. Regardless, these are my top ten selections of gift ideas for her on Valentine's Day. One can't really go wrong with skincare, makeup, jewelry, shoes, handbags, lingerie, perfume, and lace panties in the form of flowers. Of course, buying a Cartier bangle is not applicable to all situations.

Superdry Sport

"Sucking every body part into a sports bra (not that I have an issue in that area) and leggings is quite important"







Well, my dear cyber friends, I'm nearing the third week of the Smoothie King "Change a Meal" challenge where I replace one meal per day with a meal replacement smoothie.

Paralleled with high-intensity workouts and a balanced nutrition, my body definitely feels a difference in muscle definition and tightening. Of course, one cannot possibly workout comfortably without cute workout clothes. Allow me to re-introduce Superdry Sport and their amazing new pieces that I love so much. For those who don't already know, I am extremely picky about the activewear that I put on my body for exercise. Case in point:

A) My hips are wider than my waist so it's hard to find fitness clothing that fits both areas well
B) I like elasticity and the ability to move every single ligament while wearing activewear
C) Sucking every body part into a sports bra (not that I have an issue in that area) and sports leggings is quite important
D) It needs to look cute, obviously

Hence, my love for the newest pieces from Superdry Sport. You're welcome in advance.

Camry





With a bold new design, the 2016 Toyota Camry is built for the daring.

While I was home for the holidays, I had the pleasure of experiencing this new beauty and all it has to over. Its front sport seating with side bolsters that cradle the driver and mesh front grille, give the Camry a sporty thrill that driving enthusiasts love. In 30-degree weather, the 8-way power-adjustable seats and heated seating option helped keep my booty warm during the driving experience. 

Ultimately, it caters to you with wireless charging, Entune® App Suite, navigation system with traffic warnings, trip information, and voice-activating features. I loved that I was able to feel the thrill of the 3.5-liter V6 engine during my 3-hour drive to and from the airport. 

What I'm rocking:

Coat by Express (similar style here)
Pants by ZARA
Boots by Schutz (similar style here)
Sunglasses by Gucci

Smoothie King Challenge





If you're like me, making healthy and active goals for 2016 has made it to the top of the "To Do List." For the longest time, I've routinely stopped by Smoothie King for my post-workout Lean1® Chocolate meal replacement smoothie. Now, I'm teaming up with Smoothie King and committing to the Change A Meal Challenge. The Change A Meal Challenge incorporates the smoothie diet into your daily routine by replacing one meal with a Smoothie King meal replacement smoothie. If you aren't familiar with Smoothie King's options, they have 20 meal replacement smoothies that span slim, fitness, and wellness blends, all with the goal of helping individuals reach their goal of a healthier lifestyle. Each smoothie is under 400 calories with a minimum of 10 grams of protein and 35 grams of quality carbohydrates. I've noticed that by integrating protein and fiber into my diet, it helps keep you full for a longer period of time. 

My current fitness goals include shredding up my arms and abdominal area, and toning up! What are your health and fitness goals for the new year? 

To help achieve my goals, I'm going to give the Change A Meal Challenge a try and commit to replacing a meal per day with a smoothie. As an exciting incentive, you can enter to win Smoothies For A Year, a gift card to Southwest Airlines, a YMCA membership and more! Increase your chances to win every time you enjoy a Meal Replacement Smoothie and post your #changeameal smoothie selfies or a social comment using the same hashtag (#changeameal). Smoothie King will select and notify winners via social media comments and/or email. Smoothie King will ship all prizes within 6 weeks of prize claiming by the winner.

The Junior










Now that we've officially stepped into 2016, it's only right that I kick it off with my little guy. It's funny to reflect on how much he's grown over the past four years, and developed his own character that I can't even explain. He's somehow reached the stage where he's very particular about his clothing, and how it looks on him. Fitted hats are also a must-have. I've also learned that he doesn't like layering whatsoever - what a Miami kid.

As for my look, I've been loving this Hot Miami Styles olive trench coat for cooler days because it's lightweight and easy to throw on (or off). 

What Taejin's rocking:

Hat by River Island
Shirt by River Island
Jeans by Trukfit

Woman in Motion







First of all, Happy New Year! It's 2016, and I am pleased to say that I can reflect on everything thus far and feel appreciative of everything in my life at this moment.

One primary goal of mine over the past five months has been to really focus on improving myself internally and physically. Over this time, I've received many questions regarding what I do for day-to-day exercise and I typically like to incorporate a workout every day of the week. Let's be honest, we don't always have time to squeeze in a workout after a long day and some of us don't want to wake up at 6AM just to make it happen. There are days where I miss a workout, but I jump back into it the next day. Everybody's human. 

 My workout routine usually consists boxing two days out of the week, Orange Theory Fitness (which is a circuit training class combining rowing, running, and weight training) two days out of the week, outdoor bootcamp (circuit training) on the weekends, and outdoor circuits focused on abs and the booty throughout the week. I've learned to love it. It's pretty addicting - once you start, you can't stop.

What I'm rocking:

Capri leggings c/o Up Vibe
