Top Chill Spots in Miami Design District

When you have lived in Miami long enough, you discover more than beaches and nightclubs. There are chill neighborhoods that make this city great to be part of like the Miami Design District. While I can’t go on a spree at any of the designer shops, I can still enjoy nom-worthy treats around the block.… Continue reading Top Chill Spots in Miami Design District

Sunday at the Drybar

A couple weeks ago I returned to the Drybar at Brickell City Centre for some much needed self-care. After a Sunday of rest, it was like the icing on top. I joined a group of fashion babes in Miami, hosted by Stephanie from Mota Parla. We each grabbed a glass of mimosa and flipped through… Continue reading Sunday at the Drybar

Was it Worth It?

A moment on the lips is a lifetime on the hips. We’ve heard the phrase before. Especially when our gym partner slaps a donut from our hand. I’m not here to talk about diets, though. What I am more interested in is if we consider this reality in our daily lives.   The Python Was… Continue reading Was it Worth It?

I Was Hungry, And You Fed Me

Wherever you find yourself reading this—maybe you are holding a hot dog under the fireworks—I wonder if you worry about your next meal. Not just a food picture worthy of the gram… I am asking if you ever wonder what you would do if you had to beg for food? The Encounter This Sunday I… Continue reading I Was Hungry, And You Fed Me

When an Organized Space Clears the Mind

Growing up my cousins would pick on me by rearranging things in my room. Let me explain. I used to keep my collection of Precious Moments in my room on the dresser, nightstands, and on shelves. They were all arranged in a particular way, and so, my cousins—knowing how much it bothered me—would come into… Continue reading When an Organized Space Clears the Mind

Do You Really YOLO?

The motto is so real, but is it so worth it? Yes, we only live once. But YOLO can mean one of two things: you only live once, so do something you have never done before (that might be idiotic or embarrassing); or it can mean you only live once, so make mindful choices that… Continue reading Do You Really YOLO?

Don’t Stop Buying Avocados, but…

In case you hadn’t checked, today is National Lucky Penny Day. And sure, maybe you forgot because after all, what can a penny get you nowadays anyway? It barely gets you luck, and it surely won’t quickly add up to you buying your first house. But, it does make me think about money and what… Continue reading Don’t Stop Buying Avocados, but…

Stirred But Never Changed

We are all about the selfie stick. Instagram paints the picture we want people to see. And Facebook tells them how to feel about us. It is all on the surface. But, what’s actually happening underneath it all? I started 2017 reflecting on many different areas of my life like relationships, hobbies, and priorities. It… Continue reading Stirred But Never Changed

Learn Resilience Before the Trial

A couple weeks ago I was sitting inside a Miami Beach restaurant with some friends over a shared dessert. Let’s call it girl talk. One of the girls brought up the book Option B by Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant. The next day I saw the book on the first page of a bookseller’s website.… Continue reading Learn Resilience Before the Trial

The App for the Not-So-Morning Person

“The early bird gets the worm,” said no one that likes to sleep in, ever. That has been my daily struggle for as long as I can remember. If we are naming a type, I would quickly fall into the night owl category. Some part of me still wanted to be a morning person. I… Continue reading The App for the Not-So-Morning Person
