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.


ARE YOU READY TO JOIN US?

Happy Friday everyone!  After much Baseling, Miami still came out to attend Trini in Private's annual holiday event that I hosted alongside Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables and L'Oreal.  On December 10th, Miami and Brickell's most elite came out for an evening of beauty, luxury, cuisine and fun.  We began the night with light bites provided by MPP Brickell, Spaghettino, and Brasileiro Miami.  LeSutra sparkling liqueur flowed endlessly, while Birthday Cake and Ice Cream Wines poured up deliciously decadent glasses of wine for all guests.

A special thank you to all of my blogger sisters who came out to show their love and support, in addition to all of you who I met at the event.  It was such an exceptional experience, and I loved meeting all of you!

Located in the heart of Brickell, Trini in Private offers an array of relaxing services and their team caters to your wants and/or needs.  With six locations in Florida, Trini in Private has become the mecca of beauty and salon services.  Prior to the event that I hosted, Trini pampered me with a shampoo, cut and blow dry.  Additionally, my hair was colored with a chocolate gloss and light highlights which I absolutely fell in love with.  I highly recommend going to Marie, who impressed me with her professionalism and skill.  It was the quickest and most efficient hair job that I have ever received, and I rarely trust new technicians with my hair!  

Aside from my hair, Trini also catered to my nails by providing me with a Shellac manicure which was my first time trying this and I don't think I can go back to a regular manicure after this experience.  I've heard so many rave reviews about Shellac, and decided to try it for myself after Trini suggested it.  It dries instantly and doesn't chip for at least 10 days.  If you're like me, you have a toddler, or you don't have all of the time in the world to do your nails, then I suggest trying the Shellac manicure by Trini.

Another gem that I discovered at Trini was their Paraffin treatment that was applied to my feet as a warm wax application that made my feet feel like silk prior to a pedicure.  Let's just say this - it does wonders for the ladies who wear heels often.

Style By Lynsee on Instagram

I typically spend my Sunday mornings on my balcony, nibbling on fresh fruit (and of course, who doesn't eat their fruit on a gold plate?)

Recently, I had the pleasure of receiving a private invite from Calypso St. Barth to preview their latest collection and devour a delicious light brunch inside their Bal Harbour location.  This shot was taken in the dressing room, as I was trying on my favorite new pieces!

Calypso St. Barth has beautiful home decor!  One of my guilty pleasures is browsing home decor items online or via Pinterest.
Morning ritual: Black coffee in my silk robe.  Oh yeah.

One of my favorite new nail trends for the fall season that repeats itself from last year: Oxblood.

This photo shoot at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden was so much fun, and a beautiful venue.
I've been hearing so much about this new water that Whole Foods carries, alkaline fulvic trade mineral infused water by blk.  I was a little hesitant to try it at first, but it ended up tasting exactly like.....water.  Who knew?!
A new runway hair trend that I've been playing with lately, after seeing designers such as Rebecca Minkoff showcasing it at New York Fashion Week, braids.

It started out as a Sunday ritual, but turned into an everyday ritual: Pumpkin Spiced Lattes from Starbucks!!

Throwback.  I was such a classy little girl, huh?

Miami Swim Week Recap III: Betsey Johnson SS14 Swim Collection Launch Event

Betsey Johnson, American fashion designer renowned for feminine and quirky designs, hosted the most dazzling event during Mercedes-Benz Swim Week in Miami this year.  Filled with plenty of flare and pink galore, the launch party for her SS2014 swimwear collection was nothing short of fabulous.  The inspiration behind her latest collection combined Betsey's energy and eccentric ability to combine innovative design elements from travel, new trends and ageless discoveries.  Elite fashion bloggers, editors and socialites met on the rooftop of the Betsy Hotel (serendipity, right?) which overlooked a gorgeous view of Miami Beach's sandy beach.

“My swimwear is for the young and the forever young!  It's fun and flirty and a little bit rock and roll. I want my girls to feel good in my suits so it's also all about the fit!”, said Betsey.











Guests enjoyed signature "The Johnson" cocktails infused with prickly pear puree, POM pomegranate juice and Russian Standard Vodka.  Light bites were passed around as attendees jammed to a live DJ and beautiful models rocked Betsey's new swimwear collection.  Guests were also delighted with a special announcement that Betsey partnered with Malibu Design Group on this collection.

 “We are excited to partner with the iconic brand Betsey Johnson. This is a great way to expand our contemporary portfolio and we are honored Betsey is leading us there.” exclaimed Malibu Design Group president Henry Fan. 















































The Betsey Johnson SS14 Swimwear Collection will be available October 2013 at department stores and www.BetseyJohnson.com.

Miami Swim Week Kicks Off with Peroni and Roxy

In spite of the copious rain downpours, Miami fashion-goers made their way out to kick off Mercedes-Benz Swim Week 2013.  Peroni invited select guests for the 2nd annual "Sneak Peek Swim Kick Off" at the Soho Beach House penthouse, complete with Peroni beverages and a live DJ on the 1's and 2's.  Italia Independent gifted myself and the other top Miami fashion bloggers with custom Miami Swim Week 2013 sunglasses, which are fabulous with blue velvet frames and mirrored lenses.

The Roxy Pop Surf event at The Raleigh and Ocean Drive magazine party at the Surfcomber were moved indoors.  Roxy showcased a fashion presentation filled with bright and vibrant colors, Hawaiian prints, and bold patterns.  One aspect of Miami that I've noticed in my time here is that rain or poor weather doesn't keep anybody inside.
