PRIDE

This post is a bit late but I felt the need to update to show support to my LBGT people. This was the first year I attended Pride Parade in Orlando, FL. Upon arriving there was a serene feeling of unity and strength. It was […]

HALLOWEEN 2016

Halloween always marks the beginning of the end of the year for me. I love this holiday because you get to dress up in costumes and party, and who doesn’t love that? This was the first year I enjoyed the annual Halloween at Lincoln Rd. […]

CREATIVE BLOCKS

 

Sucks so much to be in a block. It’s like you know that you’re a creative person but there’s been no inspiration for months. All your mind is saying is create, create create, but you’re staring at a blank canvas and your arm doesn’t budge. Overcoming this block is such a release, you feel back to normal after so much time of feeling like a bland, ordinary, unimaginative person. I’m back, and there’s swirls starting to spin in my brain. Ideas, colors, photo shoots, and many motives. Let’s do this! Also, see STREET SURVEILLANCE for new content 🙂

NYC

There’s something for everyone in NYC.

ST-GERMAIN ON THE BRAINNNN.

  (photo by @tropicalstormlaura) @stgermaindrinks pool side aperitif at the @mondrianhotels in Miami happened and it was hosted by my beautiful friend Laura. Poolside at the Mondrian? Perfect ambiance to enjoy the classic St-Germain cocktail. It’s a bubbly and refreshing drink that consists of brut […]

ORLANDO BOUND

I traveled to Orlando, FL for Father’s Day to visit my dear parents. I was really excited to drive there because the open road gives me time to let my brain release itself into random thought, which is therapeutic for me. I also really enjoy being able to listen to long musical sets without having to press pause. Before I travel, I search for my favorite DJ, and find a set that they played at a festival. I turn the music on full blast, and it makes me feel as if I am actually there, jumping and dancing to the beats. It made the ride seem faster,  and after 3.5 hours of that, I arrive at home sweet home. I had a chance to bond with my family, eat meals together, (something that I took for granted when I lived at home) and shopped at one of my favorite second hand shop Plato’s Closet. If you have never heard of this place, it’s a store who buys and sells gently used clothing that is going to be better than what you find at a Salvation Army. The clothes are trendier, and in good conditions. I am a huge advocate of recycling and reusing, so I love places like this. My mom normally comes with me and she is the best because she holds everything I choose as I search through racks and racks of clothing, until I finally get to the fitting room.  By that time, I can barley see her little body there are so many hangers draped over her arm. Sometimes I need a second opinion when trying things on, and at least I can count on my mom on giving me an honest answer. I found a few fun pieces to add to my wardrobe like a funky parrot shirt & Abercrombie jeans for only $20 dollars! Wait for the cat shirt, it’s one of a kind. My favorite part about thrifting is finding so many unique articles of clothing in one store versus going to a mall and entering 18734834 shops to find that they all sell the same things.

SUMMER VIBIN’

  When I think about the summer season, the first things that come to mind are bright colors, palm trees, sunshine and beaches. It can also be the perfect time to experiment with different makeup looks. Anyone that knows me, will tell you I wear […]

MAISON ET OBJETS MIAMI 2016

It’s funny how life works out sometimes. You never know who you’re going to meet, and what opportunities can come from them. I met two women from Colombia who were working at the Maison & Objet show here in Miami. I spoke with them about […]
