Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and Coconut Grove’s go-to beauty salon decided to spoil me over the weekend. As a mom with nearly zero time to get my hair or nails done, Hair by Hisham catered to my every want or need as soon as I walked in the door. To be completely honest, I was long overdue for a haircut (my ends looked like they had been through the Amazon rainforest’s swamp holes and back).

“Ultimately, being a fierce version of yourself helps push you even further to achieve your goals and conquer the world”
When I first started working out and getting into the fitness world, I imagine that I looked like a helpless sloth attempting to exercise my way through the treacherous gym without any proper knowledge of what I was doing. However, over time I realized that you can do anything you set your mind to if you believe in yourself. When I’m working out, I like to think that my alter ego comes out, similar to the way Beyonce turns into Sasha Fierce on stage when she’s performing (although I look nothing like Beyonce when I’m in the gym). Let’s call it – Lynsee Fierce.
In all 13 years that my brother has lived on the west coast, I have somehow never traveled there to see him. Yes, I know what you may be thinking. Lynsee, you are a terrible sister. However, I live on the complete opposite side of the country so we would meet in the middle for holidays. In lieu of continuing this ridiculousness, I flew to California this past weekend to see him and his fiancé (and participate in all of her wondrous bachelorette party festivities). Let’s just say there was plenty of estrogen, red wine, and I managed to come back to Miami with the voice of Kermit the Frog.
During my stay, I had the pleasure of residing at the luxurious Hotel Valencia Santana Row. Having never been to Santana Row, I was astoundingly impressed with the area (restaurants, shopping, wineries, nightlife). It seemingly reminded me of Lincoln Road here in Miami. The hotel was nestled in San Jose, with an elegant old world European style meets sleek modern design. As the only hotel located directly on Santana Row, it catered to everything that I possibly needed. Upon arriving, a tray of my favorite french macarons were awaiting with sparkling water. When I’m traveling, finding a good place to workout is always on the top of my list so I immediately wandered over to the fitness center sweat out anything that was consumed at Jacuzzi and Cline wineries in Sonoma.
