A Day in the Life: Full Leg Workout, Dental Spa + Healthy Food!


 
I'm excited to take you into a "day in the life" with me, as I share an intense leg workout at Legacy Fit, a visit to Dr. Patty's Dental Boutique, and some of my favorite healthy food essentials. I often receive questions or inquiries about my workout routine and diet, so I thought I'd share this with you to give you a better idea! Lately, I've been incorporating high-intensity interval training in between my sets (I love supersets) to keep my heart rate up.  Essentially, a superset is when you do two exercises back-to-back with little to no rest in between. It's been the most effective for me, in shaping my body how I desire it to look as well.  Here are the complete details for my workout:

SUPERSET #1
Walking Lunges 15 per leg x 3
Jumping Lunges 15 per leg x 3

SUPERSET #2
Barbell Squats (Sumo) 10 -12  x 4
Pop Squats 15 x 4

SUPERSET #3
Deadlifts (Sumo) 10 - 12 x 3
EZ Bar Curtsy Lunge Pulse 8 - 10 (Each leg) x 3

SUPERSET #4
Squat to Reverse Grip Shoulder Press 15 x 4
Battle Rope To Failure
Single Sky Bridge (Each leg) 15 x 4

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.

Mazda CX-3





The 2017 Mazda CX-3 can only be described as something similar to the elegance of a wild animal in the instant prior to pouncing on its prey. Um, hello.  That's quite possibly the only type of vehicle I want to drive. Its exterior design has a nice balance of rich body contouring with incredible short overhangs and simple lines that express energy and movement.  Of course, the interior gives it its true character though.  Textures and neutral colors are combined to give it a sense of sporty refinement, which is what I like to consider myself.  Sporty refinement.  No?  It was worth a shot.  Aside from its beauty, the all new CX-3 offers Active Driving Display to help keep your mind focused on the driving experience without distraction. Last but not least, Mazda Connect and the Bose 7-speaker surround sound system allotted time, before I dropped my son off at school, for morning jam sessions with my five-year-old.  Ju-ju on that beat was streaming through those bad boys all day.

Silky Red Dress + Lucite Heels







If you follow me on Instagram, then I'm sure you believe I wear gym clothes 99% of my breathing days. However, I love to get all dolled up too. Midtown is located in the heart of Miami, a few steps from Design District and the downtown area. It's essentially a shopping mecca filled with little cafes, restaurants, and fitness options as well. It's become a weekend must see-and-do, and if you're ever in Miami you have to visit and check out all that the area has to offer.

The Perfect Valentine's Day Gift That's Good For You







I recently discovered what quite possibly may be the most delicious chocolate, ever. Dark chocolate is one of my guilty pleasures (aside from peanut butter), but it also offers nutrition and energy that benefit your heart and brain. K'ul Chocolate brings the value of a small batch-crafted chocolate into the functional food segment by producing unique bars from artisan dark chocolate with superfood ingredients, targeting both athletes and chocolate connoisseurs while connecting everyone directly to small cocoa growers. The cocoa is made from single-origin sources, including Peru, Kafupbo cooperative in Haiti, Forester cocoa from Brazil, and Hacienda Limon farm in Ecuador. 

Aside from its benefits, we all know chocolate is known for causing feelings of pleasure. After all, it's a luxurious treat. K'ul's Stamina bar is made from 70% high-quality chocolate, cranberries, cherries, pomegranate, raspberries, and maca root. Maca root has been known to increase stamina and libido. Therefore, it's the perfect Valentine's treat.

Military Shirt Dress + Statement Knee High Boots





After traveling up to the tundra for a week, it feels absolutely incredible to be back in warm climates once again. Before the temperature dropped to 50 degrees in Miami, the weather was amazing (especially on the day we shot these photos). Often times, I style my looks by mixing edgy or masculine pieces with delicate and feminine items. For example, I took a loose-fitting military shirt dress and layered it with a lace bralette and caged knee-high boots. Growing up, I was always running around with my older brother as the epitome of a tomboy. Therefore, my style has evolved but it's still blended with boyish pieces as well.

New Year, New Face






Throughout my ten years of living in Miami, my skin has undergone quite some sun damage. More specifically, my facial skin. Let me preface this by saying that I have had an infinite fear of any kind of facial treatments because I had a terrible, tear-jerking experience prior. In lieu of getting a standard facial, I was introduced to Vivid Face, which is located in Aventura, Florida. The center offers full body solutions, injectables, tattoo removal, laser hair removal, and laser facial treatments. Upon arriving, the whole Vivid Face team was friendly and welcoming, which helped decrease my level of anxiety at that point. Reminder: my last facial treatment experience ended with me crying, and I typically have quite a high pain tolerance.

My Vivid Therapist reviewed everything about the Signature Facial Treatment and began a seemingly painless laser treatment on my face. In essence, it felt like she was brushing heat over my face but it wasn't bad at all. The next treatment felt as though she was poking my face, and before I knew it the session was complete. The session lasted for about 20 minutes, so it's quick and easy. My skin was terrible before receiving the treatment (sun spots, dark areas, blemishes), but I even noticed a change the following day. Makeup applied smoother, my skin felt smoother, and brighter. I highly recommend Vivid Face if you're in the South Florida area.

Vivid Face is located at 15400 Biscayne Blvd, Suite 104 Aventura, Florida 33160.

Acura ILX


Back at it again with another beauty, but this automobile is not just any traditional compact sport-sedan. The 2017 Acura ILX completely redefines its category, with aggressive styling and bold accents. The style and sporty 201-hp engine almost remind me of the driving experience of a Cadillac, in the sense that it revels in luxury and class.  As always, pick-up speed is one of my favorite aspects or noted features when I'm driving cars and this one is quite a beast. 

It's particularly impressive in its smart capabilities, with Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) which uses a forward-facing camera mounted above the inside rearview mirror to proactively keep the ILX in the center of its detected lane. Therefore, one doesn't have to worry about veering off into other lanes during the driving experience. All in all, the new Acura ILX is rather impressive this time around.

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.
