Tropical Two-Piece Set and Aria Jewel Perspex Heels in Miami


One of my absolute favorite aspects of living in sunny Miami is that the weather can go from 60 degrees in December to a gorgeous 75 degrees the following day. Well, it's time for an update. After indulging in endless carbs over the holidays, I recently started a new lifestyle plan (I like to refer to it as a lifestyle plan rather than diet because it sounds less intimidating). I don't know about you guys, but over the holidays I wasn't feeling like myself. My energy levels were extremely low, I was eating crap, and overall wasn't feeling well. Therefore, I changed my diet around and started a new workout plan as well. One week into it, and I'm feeling amazing! I go a little more into detail on my YouTube channel, if you're interesting in checking it out.

Aside from that, I've been spending more time outdoors and enjoying the beautiful scenery. What I love about this outfit is that it has a feminine flair, yet still keeps me comfy and cool throughout the day. These shoes, though. Can we talk about these shoes? I am utterly obsessed with these aria jewel embellished heels by EGO. They completely turn any outfit into a masterpiece with no effort. See below for some affordable options to achieve this look!

This two piece set is the perfect night-out look that is sleek and sexy, and completely Miami weather proof. To complete the look, these EGO rose gold metallic boots have a chunky heel that puts less pressure on the foot. Check out how to achieve this look below!

Peace of Mind with Bay Alarm





The moment I became a mommy, I realized all of the worries that come along with it. 

Although I wish my son would stay pint-sized forever, reality sets in that he's growing up quicker than I can keep up. As he gets older, I have to learn to let him have his independence and do things on his own. However, I'm the definition of an overprotective mom. Therefore, I've partnered up with Bay Alarm Medical to introduce a new device that keeps children protected both in and away from home. The small and lightweight device has GPS location tracking that offers 24/7 push-button help for children during an emergency. It's especially ideal for kids if they walk home alone or take the bus from school. 

How does it work?

  • Simply push the emergency alert button
  • Operators will initiate two-way communication and track the location
  • If necessary, Bay Alarm Medical will contacts friends, family, neighbors, and local 911 emergency services
Essentially, The Bundle Package is a great (and cost-effective) option for individuals looking for at-home and cell coverage. This includes the In-Home System and GPS Mobile Help Button. For more information, visit www.BayAlarmMedical.com.

THE FUTURE | Lexus LC500h


Let me just start off by saying the 2018 Lexus LC500h is a game-changer.  

Combining the prestigious luxury of a two-door coupe and the first ever Lexus multistage hybrid, this was undeniably my greatest driving experience with the brand. Designed as the most powerful Lexus V8 built, the automobile has overall performance handling equivalent to an Aston Martin DB11. Aside from its roaring power, they nailed the design. The interior is laced with Alcantara sport seating, a carbon fiber roof to lower the vehicle's center of gravity, an expansive glass roof, ambient lighting, sleek door handles, and hand-selected leather. Additionally, the dimensional taillamps are inspired by the look and feel of a jet's afterburners. It essentially drives itself, as it incorporates radar technology to detect when too close to another vehicle and slows down or even comes to a complete stop. Despite the car being low to the ground, it was one of the most unique driving experiences I've had with a Lexus vehicle. Molding together a hybrid and 10-speed transmission V8 luxury coupe is epic.

Olay 28-Day Challenge: Results

It has been said that it takes at least three weeks to form a habit, and I've learned that with consistency comes results. I've teamed up with Olay to complete the 28-Day Challenge using only two products. Therefore, over the course of 28 days I replaced all facial moisturizers and eye creams with the following two-step regimen:

Step 1: AM apply the Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15
Step 2: AM and PM apply Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel


BEFORE // Day 1: My skin had many imperfections and blemishes, with oily residue.

When I first began this journey, I honestly wasn't expecting to achieve results so early in the process. However, by day 7 my skin was already visibly healthier looking. My skin appearance began looking more even and I looked less tired throughout the day.




By day 14, my skin felt moisturized and hydrated throughout the day. Aside from that, both products made my skin feel cared for and I really looked forward to putting them on each day. It was almost like a therapeutic ritual that I enjoyed each morning and night.



AFTER // Day 28

 At the end  the 28 days, my skin looked and felt much healthier to say the least. It's incredible how integrating one daily habit into my life was seemingly so easy and effective. What I noticed about the Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15 is that it evened my skin tone and appearance, and brought out a brighter glow. I also noticed a difference in minimizing my pores and reducing dark spots on my face. I don't know about you guys, but I don't get enough sleep each night. Being a busy mom, I receive about five hours of sleep per night if I'm lucky enough. Hence, the skin under my eyes is often dry and puffy. By using the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel each morning and night, the skin under my eyes were hydrated and the delicate skin plumped. The cooling formula also helped fight visible signs of fatigue and under eye dehydration lines.

Therefore, I encourage you to join the journey with a visit to an Olay Skin Advisor so that you can experience the easy no-brainer skin regimen too. An Olay Skin Advisor is the most precise skin diagnosis known to public (after using Skin Advisor, 95% of women agreed that product recommendations felt "right for her") and can provide you with a personalized skincare regimen. The first 15 readers to visit will receive $40 off their purchase of recommended products!

ROAD TRIP | LEXUS RX 350


It's Labor Day weekend, which means I have one extra day of keeping my little man entertained for a full 24-hours without boring him of low energy activities.  Therefore, we decided to take a little road trip in the all new Lexus RX 350. Known to never disappoint, Lexus transformed this SUV into a driving experience of sophistication and captivating comfort. With a chiseled design and top-notch interior, it made the drive seamlessly smooth. Something I also noticed when backing up, is that the RX 350 has a blind spot monitor with cross-traffic braking. Essentially, the vehicle senses when one is too close to something and it will stop by itself. With plenty of space, this was perfect for our road trip (which wouldn't be complete without a snack stop at the gas station). What are your weekend plans?

Mazda MX-5





The ever evolving Mazda MX-5 has gone through four generations of innovations, but it has still obtained its authenticity of a lightweight sports car. Throughout my numerous driving experiences, I have to say that the all new MX-5 is probably one of the most fun vehicles to drive. The updated design also took me by surprise, as the top folds away in what seems to be a modern day bat mobile. However, it keeps its muscular stance and aggressiveness without sacrificing the sleek style of the exterior. Since it's known as an iconic roadster vehicle, I decided to take it out into the open roads near the Everglades, to test out the racing capabilities and see how it really performs. Check out the footage we captured below.

White Illusion Mermaid Dress | FANTASY LAND


I've been shamelessly rocking all of the white pieces in my wardrobe, including this white fishnet maxi dress.  Lighter colors are my go-to options in this hot weather, for the simple fact that it keeps me cooler and less likely to be drenched in my own sweat on a typical walk to Starbucks. However, this is definitely not my "walk to the coffee shop" attire. What I love so much about this dress it its illusion mesh material that allows for breath-ability without sacrificing style. These perspex platform heels have also been on repeat, as they pair well with multiple outfits effortlessly.

SUNSET STROLL | RUCHED DRESS + LACE UP HEELS







Let's face it - every girl likes to get all glammed up and throw on something that screams, "I have arrived." This is one of those outfits. I'm one of those people who is either dressed in gym clothes or full glam; there is no gray area. This off the shoulder ruched dress is one of the most flattering dresses I own, and the fit is incredible. It accentuates all of your curves, and sucks everything in at once. As for accessories, I kept it pretty delicate because I didn't want to take away from the simplicity of this dress. What's something that makes you feel gorgeous?
