The time has come when we all sit back and think about what we can do, now that we have entered the New Year, to better ourselves with a fresh start to the year. A few of my favorite things to do are to: 1) Do a juice cleanse, 2) Clean out closets or drawers, 3) Donate clothes that I don’t need or wear, 4) Set goals, and 5) Clean the entire home. There’s something refreshing about getting rid of clutter and things that are simply taking up space in the home. It’s also a great feeling to give back to the less fortunate, which sets the year off to a motivational start.
What are some things that you do to begin the new year?
New Year’s Eve is an evening of fun and an opportunity for ladies to glam up as we enter the upcoming year. When I think of New Year’s Eve, I begin to think of big and sexy hair with plenty of gorgeous curls. Therefore, I put together this hair tutorial that shows how I achieve sexy hair for a glamorous look.

Although summer is nearing its end, I wanted to share my favorite DIY body scrub that gives a really sexy leg glow and it’s extremely simple to put together. Using products that are most likely laying around the kitchen, this coconut and lime leg scrub exfoliates skin and keeps it smooth as ever. Exfoliating not only gives a beautiful glow, but improves circulation as well.
Some other great tips for maintaining sexy legs are:
1) Drink plenty of water
2) Shave legs regularly to remove hair
3) Stay active
4) Eat healthy
5) Apply lotion immediately after getting out of the shower to moisturize well (don’t dry off first)
6) Don’t wear clothing or undergarments that are too tight on your skin, as it can lead to varicose veins or numbing in the legs
Over the weekend, I was invited to attend the decadent Summer Saturdays event which was held at Saks Fifth Avenue in Bal Harbour. My fellow blogger (Kristin Clark of LICP) hosted a fabulous afternoon of music, cupcakes, candy and nail wrapping while guests viewed the newest pieces from Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet. Stacey incorporates her love of culture, music, art and vintage fashion into each collection, and gives something fresh and edgy to the Alice + Olivia girl every season. I’m really loving the bold prints and colors from Alice + Olivia, along with classical black and white pieces.
Saks Fifth Avenue is in Bal Harbour Shops, Miami’s striking shopping complex. The beautiful layout highlights top names in fashion, accessories, beauty products and a wide range of swimwear add to the glitzy experience of this lustrous store.
Bright colors are celebrated amongst fashion bloggers and socialites in a range of pieces, as a timeless summer trend. Inspired by the vibrant aura from the 1980’s, neon tones enhance the skin’s summer glow and create a look that is radiantly confident. A delicate neon top can effortlessly be paired with some neutral high-waisted shorts and minimal accessories to pull together a standout daytime look. This particular pairing could even function as an evening look by throwing on a sexy black pump and an oversized clutch.
