The Lexus Experience









Moving boldly forward, the all new 2017 Lexus NX Turbo F Sport is incredibly designed in all aspects of the vehicle. It embodies an aggressive, standout look, with dynamic handling and exclusive updates. Its sporty seating and race-inspired G-force transform this SUV into an innovative beauty and beast. Its interior design and moonroof also give it a luxe experience, with a Remote Touchpad to help navigate the vehicle at your fingertips. Another key feature that I absolutely loved about the NX was its wireless phone charging capabilities (because who needs cords). 

Continuing on with the athleisure trend and lifestyle, I paired sporty pieces with edgy details for a bold look during FUNKSHION's The Retreat here in Miami. The Lexus NX Sport was the perfect vehicle for getting me around during the busy four-day fitness and wellness retreat, while allowing for plenty of cargo space while going in and out of events.

Ferrari 458 Spider









 

Let’s face it, Ferrari is the epitome of Italian excellence. I recently had the pleasure of experiencing the Ferrari 458 Spider and all of its unprecedented glory. Innovating the auto industry as the world’s first mid-rear-engine sports car with a retractable hard top, the 458 encompasses all things functional, style, comfort, and performance. Speaking of performance, let’s get to the real juice. Known for its racing capabilities, Ferrari developed the 458 with 562 horsepower and a maximum speed of 199 mph. Yes, please. Not to mention its ability to go form 0-62 mph in less than 3.4 seconds. Needless to say, Ferrari is well known for paying close attention to detail in every aspect of their vehicles and it shows with the 458 Spider. The nose has two small aero-elastic winglets which create downforce and with acceleration, contort to reduce drag. Of course, a fierce red number and Louboutins go quite well with the Ferrari 458 Spider.

Volvo XC90





If I'm going to be completely honest, I have never driven a Volvo prior to stepping foot into the 2017 Volvo XC90. To my surprise, it is a completely refined and luxurious vehicle with spacious interior. Every aspect of the car works in harmony - from the finest soft Nappa leather and flame birchwood, to handcrafted detailed diamond-cut buttons and a 19-speaker Bowers & Wilkins sound system, to name a few.  Another impressive feature that I noticed was its Hybrid, twin engine that boosts 400 horsepower yet remains so quiet and calm throughout the driving experience. With a rear cooling compartment for beverages, massage function seating, and endless smart capabilities, you could basically live in this vehicle.

Socially Driven with Mercedes-Benz: My Miami

As a car connoisseur and lover of all vehicles with some power behind the pedal, it has to be known that Mercedes-Benz is at the top of my list of iconic brands. When I was approached with their Socially Driven campaign, of course, I jumped at the opportunity to partner with the company to share my version of Miami. People consistently ask me about my favorite spots in the city, so I figured it was about that time to share with you all. Discovering new places and pieces of beauty is what I love, so if you had just one day to spend in Miami...these are my not-to-be missed moments.

6AM // CATCH THE SUNRISE BETWEEN 1ST AND WASHINGTON AVENUE. MIAMI HAS BEAUTIFUL SANDY BEACHES, AND SKYLINES TO MATCH. THIS IS ALSO THE QUIETER AREA OF MIAMI BEACH, SO YOU CAN TAKE IT ALL IN.


9AM // GET YOUR WORKOUT ON AT MIAMI BEACH'S MOST ELITE FITNESS CENTER, ANATOMY AT 1220. THIS PLACE HAS EVERYTHING YOU COULD POSSIBLY NEED OR WANT IN A GYM, OR LIFE (NOT TO MENTION, IT'S EVERY CELEBRITY'S GO-TO SPOT TO GET SWEATY WHILE IN THE CITY).


12PM // GRAB A LIGHT LUNCH AT WYNWOOD YARD'S DELLA TEST KITCHEN. WITH SIMPLE INGREDIENTS AND COMPLEX LAYERS OF FLAVOR, THEIR DISHES ARE INCREDIBLE. SAVE ROOM FOR THEIR ALMOND BUTTER CUPS - YOU WILL MOST CERTAINLY WANT ONE TO FINISH OFF YOUR MEAL...OR 15.


3PM // GO FOR AN AFTERNOON STROLL AND CHECK OUT SOUTH POINTE PIER. ITS SIGHTS ARE GORGEOUS, AND THE AREA IS FILLED WITH ACTIVITY FOR EVERYONE.


7PM // FINISH OFF THE DAY WITH MIAMI BEACH'S TASTIEST PIZZA, GIOTTO. IT'S A LITTLE HIDDEN SPOT RIGHT OFF WEST AVENUE, AND THE MARGHERITA THIN CRUST PIZZA IS TO DIE FOR! I PROMISE, YOU WILL NEVER EAT ANY OTHER PIZZA AGAIN.

Mitsubishi Mirage G4






Allow me to introduce the 2017 Mitsubishi G4, as bold and beautiful as she wants to be.  I had the pleasure of driving the all new car recently, and was quite impressed with its performance and technological capabilities. It has some fantastic smart features that allow for little distraction throughout the driving experience. For example, its CarPlay capability allows your phone to sync directly with the vehicle for a completely hands-free feature where it reads your text messages to you. It also offers the option to type out messages as replies, check voicemail, call contacts, etc. 

Aside from its techie aspects, the automobile is quite purse-friendly if you're looking to purchase a car that won't hit too hard on the pockets. Although I would like quicker acceleration, it's extremely fuel-efficient. I know this, because I basically drove all around the world before having to fill it up.

Toyota RAV4


Believe it or not, I vowed to never become one of those caravan soccer-mom drivers after I had my son. There was something about driving an oversized minivan that did not scream, "I have arrived." However, I have opened up to crossovers or SUV's. The 2017 Toyota RAV4 Crossover has been an absolute breeze to drive, and it's not too bad on the eyes either. Its bold and chiseled exterior gives it an athletic touch, yet it remains refined with elegant interior. 

Let me break it down for you. After I stepped inside the vehicle for the first time, I utilized the Smart Key System and pressed the ignition. I thought to myself, "do you hear that?" Absolutely nothing. The RAV4 has such a quiet start that I turned the vehicle off and back on, to make sure it was accurate. Aside from that, it's spacious enough to fit my whole life and then some. It also has an incredibly proven hybrid powertrain and great fuel efficiency. What surprised me the most was its 194 horsepower, which gave it sporty acceleration (we all know I love this aspect of cars).

Mitsubishi Outlander





For the past week, I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing the all new Mitsubishi Outlander - and an excellent experience it has been. It came as a surprise when I stepped into the vehicle, as the Outlander offers spacious seating and leg-room for up to seven passengers with its standard third-row seating. Another aspect of the interior that I could appreciate is its sophistication of leather seating surfaces and leather-wrapped accents. The gloss black and chrome interior detailing also gave it a touch of luxury that reflected a stylistic approach. 

The Outlander’s ECO Mode employs energy saving measures that allow it to switch from 2WD to 4WD only when necessary, ensuring that you’re getting the best fuel economy and lowest emissions. The vehicle also warns you when it’s necessary to brake, or if you are nearing another vehicle too closely it will brake by itself. Therefore, the new Mitsubishi Outlander not only has beauty, but brains as well.

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.

Kia Optima SX Turbo


One glimpse at the all new Kia Optima SX Turbo will take your breath away. 

Over the past week, I had the pleasure of experiencing the strikingly updated 2016 Optima with a completely redesigned model all the way down to Kia’s signature Tiger nose grille. The moment I stepped inside, the Optima driving experience began. From the spacious cabin to a sleek drive-side console, luxe interiors, premium stitching, and full moon roof, the Optima offers a high level of comfort and class.

Everything is forward-thinking and caters to the driving experience. Of course, I was pleasantly surprised with the performance of the Kia Optima SX Turbo in particular. The LX 1.6T trim included a new 2.0 liter Turbocharged engine with 7 Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) that combined power and efficiency. I’m all over the performance of any vehicle. After all, it’s the most thrilling part of driving.

Mazda MX-5 Miata



Despite its arrival 26 years ago, the epic Mazda Miata has transformed into a completely redesigned beauty we like to call the Mazda MX-5 Miata Convertible Roadster. Although the slightest memory of the last time I rode in a Miata was what feels like a century ago, when I was wearing Abercrombie and wedge heels, the updated version brings a little nostalgia. There is comfort in the MX-5, with its two-seat roadster styling, plush leather seats, soft ride, opera windows, and toylike fun. Additionally, the new model has slimmed down slightly from its predecessor but remains spacious enough to fit the tallest of the tall (proof: I managed to squeeze a 6'5" human in the passenger seat with ease). Cabin space allows for more room with seats that recline back further, a little more headroom, and lower seating.

This little wonder revs up 129 horsepower at 7000 rpm and 111 lb-ft torque at 4800 rpm, and gives the option of automatic or manual for the sporty thrill seekers. Needless to say, the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata carries an amazing driving experience - a sports car and fun to drive. For more information, visit www.mazdausa.com.
