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).
Aside from the incredible service, they offered their glam expertise to give an amazing hair cut and blow-dry with a manicure (one of their Mother's Day packages). Sometimes it's the simplest things that mean so much to a mother, like being able to get pampered and relax for a moment. If you're looking for the perfect Mother's Day gift, Hair by Hisham is offering an array of packages for all of the mothers out there!

With summer just around the corner, I’ve partnered up with Schick for the 7 Day Shave Challenge to help hydrate my legs after months of traveling to cooler climates where my legs were pretty much helpless. Shaving hasn’t always been one of my favorite jobs to do, but let’s face it, having wooly mammoth legs is not cute. Therefore, I shaved using the Hydro Silk razor and Skintimate Island Berry Breeze shave gel for 7 days, while utilizing the Shower Hanger Refills as an easy way to change razor blades while in the shower. I don’t know about you, but I’m one of those people who fulfills my dream of being a dancer/singer in the shower so anything that makes my shaving process more convenient is okay with me.
After using the Schick Hydro Silk Razor for a week, I noticed a difference in the smoothness of my skin. It hydrates skin like no other razor, which is perfect for me because my legs tend to get extra dry. I’ve been using Skintimate shave gel for years, so I figured I would try out the new Skintimate Island Berry Breeze scent which made the shaving experience something like shaving my legs in Fiji. The gel foams into a rich lather, helping you see where you’ve shaved and where you haven’t. Nobody likes leaving patches of hair on their legs, right? Skintimate’s Silky Skin helped replenish my skin’s natural moisture as well, as it’s blended with Moroccan Oil, Vitamin E, Olive Butter, and Sunflower Seed Oil. Are you up to the challenge? I challenge you to try the 7 Day Shave Challenge!
"Ultimately, being a fierce version of yourself helps push you even further to achieve your goals and conquer the world"
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.
from confidence, wearing fierce clothes and shoes helps. After all,
when you look good, you feel even better. Lately, I’ve been wearing
the all-new PUMA Fierce shoes everywhere (and I mean everywhere) for
their comfort and design. I love how the upper portion sits higher on
the ankle, the design is sleek, and they feel as though I’m walking
on air. They’re also perfect for traveling or when you’re on the
go because you don’t have to lace them up!
being a fierce version of yourself helps push you even further to
achieve your goals and conquer the world.
does being #ForeverFierce mean to you? Show me your 3 fiercest looks
in and out of the gym and share using #ForeverFierce.

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.
Unfortunately, it was a little chilly to test out the rooftop pool waters but the views completely made up for it. In the evening, the hotel's Vbar offers an ultra modern cocktail lounge with views of Santana Row and brunch at Citrus Restaurant was perfect because they had plenty of healthy options. Overall, I absolutely enjoyed my stay and would love to go back when I'm in the area.
