Fab to Fit Series: Episode 3: What I Eat

Happy Halloween!  In continuation with my "Fab to Fit Series," it only felt right that I share Episode 3 with you on a day where we are all tempted by sweet treats.  Although everything is perfectly fine in moderation, maintaining a clean diet is something that I have personally found to be beneficial for my body.  Therefore, limiting the amount of gluten or dairy is a large part of what helped me develop a balance that made me feel good on the inside and outside.

Drinking a gallon of water per day has helped me learn when my body is craving fluid rather than food by drinking a full glass of water before and after each meal.  Another tip that helps me stay consistent is the MyFitnessPal app which allows you to upload your daily food, water and exercise intake.  It's available for the iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Android, and Windows.

I am often asked what my diet consists of or what types of healthy foods I have eaten to help maintain a healthy body, so I put this episode together to give an idea of what a typical day in the life my diet consists of (even though no day is ever the same).

What better way to kick off my first automobile feature than with the grandiose Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder?  The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder is laced with a riveting V10 550-horsepower engine and merges the gorgeous level of open-air space with rear wheel drive.  Needless to say, this opulent piece of work has some speed.  It goes from 0-62 mph (miles per hour) in 4.2 seconds, which is faster than I can put my heels on, and reaches a top speed of 198 mph.  

Another favorite detail of mine is that the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder sits low to the ground, which makes it much easier to get in and out of than a massive truck or slightly less voluptuous car.  The body is lightweight aluminum and comes accessorized with a hydraulic life system to avoid scraping.  Let's face it, this is the Valentino of exotic cars.  

The interior is beautifully decked out in supple black or ivory quilted leather and it's pre-programmed Sport and Automatic modes are perfect for those who don't like to drive manually.  One might assume that this 2-door beast isn't safe; however, Lamborghini paid just as much attention to the safety of the driver as onlooking pedestrians by incorporating twin spring-loaded rollover bars that deploy within 250 milliseconds in a rollover incident (although we know that you aren't planning on rolling over people while driving the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder).

Ultimately, this quintessential beauty and beast of a car is the only car that provides a true experience in the lap of luxury with its sportiness, edgy exterior and astounding power.

Feathers and Mini Skirts.



Happy Monday everyone!  After a weekend full of Halloween festivities with Taejin (my two-year-old), I thought I would share this feminine look with you.  I fell in love with this Blessed Are The Meek top from Rhythm of Grace when I saw it in the boutique.  There is something about unique pieces like this top that really scream "put me on now" when I see them.  



The feather and harness detailing with gold hardware transforms a basic tee into a romantic piece that serves as the standout item in any look.


I've also been enjoying the combination of loose-fitting tees with mini skirts because it combines casual and chic in one outfit to give an effortless look and feel.  Therefore, I paired this Blessed Are The Meek top with Rhythm of Grace's Bec & Bridge Skirt in ivory.


The waffle textured detail of the skirt and rounded cut that extends longer in the back is what makes this skirt so beautiful.  It's also simple to dress up or down, depending on the occasion.


What I'm Rocking:

For those of who aren't too familiar with the Beachbody brand or Shaun T, let's just say that the workouts will have one sweating in places he/she didn't know sweat could appear and crying by the end of the session.  Needless to say, I was invited to check out Sweat USA powered by Reebook as part of my "Fab to Fit Series" when the nation's first all-star fitness festival arrived in Miami.  With over 3,000 fitness enthusiasts in attendance and over 100 exhibitors showcasing their innovative products/services, it was one of the most inspirational and motivating events that I've attended.

The three-day event encompassed workout sessions with Sweat USA's celebrity fitness trainers such as Jillian Michaels, Tony Horton (P90X) and Shaun T (Insanity), among many others, to what Sweat USA has named the fitness capital of the world in South Beach.  The classes available were Flywheel Cycling, MMA, Crossfit, Piloxing, Surfset, P90X, Insanity, and an array of others to try out.

One of my favorite go-to outfits lately has been pairing a loose-fitting tee with a fitted skirt, as it creates an effortless look that is both comfortable and chic.  Therefore, this Blessed Are The Meek mirror leopard tee is the perfect way to dress down a glamorous skirt.  

Why yes, this is my motorcycle (for this photo).

Animal print or faces on casual t-shirts is currently trending, and I love how it adds a standout effect to complete a look.  Another way to rock a shirt like this one from Rhythm of Grace, is to pair it with a lace bandeau underneath to let it peek out slightly and throw on some ankle booties or black heels.

I decided to keep it casual chic by pairing my look with these flats by BCBG, which are the most comfortable shoes that still have an edgy effect with the leather detailing.

Fashion for a Cause with Bloomingdale's - Event Video + Photos




Last night, over 20 fashion bloggers and I rocked the runway as bloggers against breast cancer for Fashion for a Cause at Bloomingdale's.  We began working on the campaign last month and teamed up in a collaborative photo shoot at the Sagamore, Art Hotel in Miami Beach along with talented photographer Alexander Tamargo to create a video installation that was unveiled at Bloomingdale's at our event.


As I mentioned in my previous post about the campaign, special guests Marisa Acocella Marchetto (Glamour cartoonist and author of Cancer Vixen), Bob Carey, and Luis Valenzuela were available to meet and greet with guests while the fashion bloggers were prepping for the runway.  Guests also devoured gluten-free cupcakes by BunnieCakes, fro-yo by Pinkberry and sips by Perrier.

SoBlo styled our hair while Bloomingdale's newest cosmetic area, Illamasqua gave each blogger a fabulous pink-inspired look to pair well with our Peace Love World shirts.  As a runway blogger, I pre-selected and styled my look courtesy of Bloomingdale's and had an amazing time supporting a great cause.  As a niece of breast cancer survivors, this particular cause was close to my heart and I will continue to support breast cancer awareness.

Taking Shape with Cameo and Rhythm of Grace

In the fashion world, geometry becomes a statement with both fresh and minimalistic pieces or bold standout items.  The key to pulling together a chic geometric look is to create balance in the overall appearance.  Therefore, I've teamed up with Rhythm of Grace boutique to showcase some of its best designer pieces to create this look.

To balance out the boldness of this Cameo Arthur Cape, I paired it with a sleek and clean Cameo Better Days Romper and minimal accessories.  Although I kept accessories at a minimum, I chose an intricate Venice Multi-Chain Watch by La Mer Collections.  What I love about this bracelet is that it weaves various metallics (gold, silver, bronze) to pair well with any outfit.

One of Rhythm of Grace's best kept secrets is its gorgeous handbags designed by Dareen Hakim, which have the most unique details and shape.  This Citrus Le V Clutch balances out this look perfectly, with its silhouette and bold color.  I love a great standout piece that I can pair with neutral tones to polish everything off.
