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.
The infamous line that it’s always better to give than receive during the holiday season is, well, not entirely true. It’s also great to receive a little, right? So I have compiled some of my favorite gift ideas for the 2013 Holiday Gift Guide for Women as part of my “Haute Holidays” video series on my YouTube channel.
In addition to some fabulous gift ideas for your mother, boyfriend’s mom, sister, BFF, or any other girl in your life, I will also be doing a huge giveaway!
Every girl needs a little R&R (rest and relaxation) once in awhile. Am I right or am I right? On those Sunday nights when I just want to stay at home and relax, I enjoy creating my own little “DIY Girl’s Night In” by making my home a spa in itself. This would also be a great idea to try out with your closest girl friends by inviting them over for a cozy night in.
No “Girl’s Night In” would be complete without:
- A pair of comfy pajamas (my favorite PJ’s are made by Victoria’s Secret)
- Hot, soothing tea (or even a glass of wine if you’re old enough of course) ( Stash Tea Exotic Tea )
- A favorite book ( You Can Create An Exceptional Life)
- Face mask of choice ( Blissoma Solutions natural skincare Refine Clay Renewal Treatment )
- A hot bubble bath
- A favorite candle burning ( Bath and Body Works Bahama Fizz )
- Manicures and pedicures ( Essie Nail Color Polish Turquoise and Caicos )
- Deep hair treatment ( Frederic Fekkai PRX Reparatives Intensive Fortifying Mask )
- Shaving the legs (I am using SatinCare by Olay and Gillette Venus razors in Sugarberry. Similar products here: Satin Care Shave Gel Gillette Venus & Olay Sugarberry )
- Crest WhiteStrips ( Crest 3d White Professional Effects Teeth Whitening Strips )

Happy Friday, guys and dolls! Following the fourth of July, I thought it would be a perfect time to share with you some of my essential items for the summer. Therefore, I’ve created a “Summer Hot List” to give you an idea of some of my favorite beauty or fashion items for the season. What are some of your essentials during the summer?

One of my favorite fashion trends for the summer is showing off a little abdomen, and Miami has the perfect weather for such an outfit. Actually, the weather is so hot that wearing no clothes at all would seem perfectly normal in my mind (although my body would not agree). For today’s look of the day I paired a cropped bustier from the Spring 2013 “Forever LA” collection with a pair of high-waisted, lightweight pants from H&M’s Conscious Collection. Although I have not been shopping as much at Forever 21 lately, this particular collection caught my eye with its bold and alluring pieces which feature a mix of graphic tribal prints.
According to Grazia Daily, “The Forever LA collection has two parts, the West Side and the East Side. The East Side is inspired by 90s urban Los Angeles style with vintage and alternative style pieces—think Fresh Prince of Bel Air. While the West Side embodies the laid-back vibe of LA with abstract prints, vibrant sneakers and crop tops.” The face of the Forever LA collection is the timeless beauty, Cassie.
What I’m Rocking:
Cropped Bustier by F21 (Forever LA)
Pants by H&M Conscious Collection
Shoes by Steve Madden
Bracelet by Kate Spade
Bangles by Boutique
Sunglasses by F21
2-Finger Ring by ALDO

Ever since New York Fashion Week, I’ve been swamped with projects so I have to apologize for my brief hiatus from blogging. The weather has cooled down slightly in Miami, but it’s given me a chance to pull out my fall and winter items. One of my favorite ways to build a look together is to piece various textures or materials together to create a unified outfit. For today’s outfit of the day, I paired a silk flowing dress by BCBG Maxazria along with an edgy belt to cinch it at the waist and lace tights. I added a hint of leopard print to add a bit of fringe to the overall look as well.
A new trend for the upcoming season is the black and white combination, which I am also loving right now. Therefore, I threw on a bold black and white clutch to accent the look and finish it off.
What I’m Rocking:
BCBG Maxazria silk dress
Steve Madden clutch
