GOING BANANAS AT HAVANA CABANA KEY WEST.

Last month, my family and I were invited to spend a couple of days at Havana Cabana Resort in Key West. Believe it or not, I’ve only been to Key West once in my Floridian life, and that was ten years ago. I know, I know. The quick island paradise is a mere three hours away and…

TREND ALERT: SEEING RED

Hi Squeezers! It looks like the last of the blonde hair shoots are making their way on the blog, and it’s hard to believe I’ve now been a brunette for a little over a month! I can’t tell you how much fun I had as a blonde! I won’t lie, it’s A LOT of maintenance…

TREND ALERT: MAKE IT POP

Summer is in full swing and that means colors that pop! pop! pop! It also means tropical print overload. This is my fourth summer back in Miami and I’ve noticed that there’s now an even amount of black NYC clothes and Miami-inspired bright clothes! Maybe it’s the blonde hair, but this outfit is a bit…

TREND ALERT: DO YOU CROP TOP?

    It’s the old age question when it comes to fashion, is there a cut off age for wearing crop tops? Growing up in a Cuban household (at least in mine), unless I was at the beach, showing my midriff was a no no. It was deemed too revealing, not age appropriate, and risqué….

TREND ALERT: RED WHITE AND BLUE WITH A TWIST

Happy Weekend, squeezers! It’s about that time to start gearing up for America’s BIG birthday, as families and friends pack up the car, get on a plane, or even maybe a train, to head to beaches, BBQs, and celebrations all over the country to celebrate the old red, white and blue.  The grocery stores are…

TREND ALERT: ROLLING OUT OF BED

‘I woke up like this.’ We’ve heard the popular expression time and time again and what brings it to life in its truest form, is the oddly-popular-yet-hard-to-accept, pajama trend. Sleepwear has gotten the street style treatment and more and more people (myself included) are jumping on the bandwagon.  I’ll admit- I was VERY hesitant about…

TREND ALERT: PASTEL PERFECTION

Good Evening squeezers! I hope you had an eventful, restful, and awesome weekend! I spent mine doing some writing, getting ready for a segment tomorrow, and spending time with my kiddos and husband (which means schlepping from birthday parties and playdates and some unwinding with wine in between).  It’s been a little bit since I’ve…

How a One Week Detox from Social Media was the Best Medicine

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to take a little voluntary break from social media. This wasn’t my first time shutting down the social media shop. Two years ago when my anxiety was at a very heightened point, I went dark for about seven months. I had no interest in being on social media,…

How I Cope With My Anxiety

It’s mental health awareness month and I’ve been very candid with all of you about my struggles with anxiety. I feel that if by sharing my story I can help at least one person, then it’s all worth it. Anxiety is not something that goes away overnight. It is something that lives with you but…

TREND ALERT: FLOWER BOMB

April showers brings May flowers, isn’t that right?! And what a a significant way to kick off the first day of May than with a bright floral number that is sure to make you feel peppy, free, and light on your feet!  This brings me to our next spring trend alert- florals, florals, and more…
