Vampires vs. Zombies

Happy Makeup Monday! Halloween is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited! This is my favorite holiday (next to Christmas, of course) because I get really creative with special FX products. Nothing makes me happier than the smell of spirit gum and staining my hands with MAC Chromacake! Although I love all things glitz and glamour, I prefer to take a more “high-fashion horror” approach when it comes to my Halloween

Glam in a Bottle

Happy Tuesday, loves! If there’s one thing I know all makeup junkies struggle with it’s finding a really REALLY good concealer. And if you have dark circles like I do, you understand the struggle. Up to now, my ultimate favorite has been Kat Von D’s Tattoo Lock-It Concealer. Recently I discovered the extremely similar and less expensive version of this product by Hard Candy called Glamouflauge. Now, there’s been a

From the Beaches to Bama

Hello Lovelies! So sorry I abandoned you all for a few weeks. I was enjoying some much needed family time on the West Coast. Now that I am back in Miami, it’s time to get down to business. Blogger business, that is! Right before I left town at the beginning of August, I had the pleasure of photographing two fabulous people! Kristy and Brittany are two of very few friends

1 Month, 2K & Twenty-Three

Hello lovelies! Sorry I disappeared for a bit! I have been busy preparing some great stuff that I think you’ll all love! So, as you may already know, today is my 23rd birthday! BUT, that isn’t the only thing I’m celebrating. It is also my “1 Month Blog-iversary” AND I just recently hit 2,000 Instagram followers. I am completely overwhelmed! Thank you to ALL of you who have been so

Sirens, Stila & Swim Week

Hello Lovelies! Alas! The much awaited Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim post has arrived! Jackie and I had the pleasure of getting a backstage, pre-show glance at the L*Space By Monica Wise show last Saturday. Aside from meeting and chit-chatting with the designer herself, we also got to speak with Sarah Lucero, the Global Director of Education for Stila Cosmetics (I almost fainted of excitement). She gave us a quick run

The Post Swim Week Blues

Hello Lovelies! If you attended Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim like my best friend (and favorite blogger) Jackie and I did, you’re probably experiencing withdrawals too. It was definitely one of the most exhilarating weekends of my life. Not to mention, it was BLAZING hot. I’ll be posting about our full experience later on this week. In the meantime, here are some pictures of the lovely Melanie Morales getting her glam on in a

“Eye” Love Tattoos!

Hello Lovelies! Let’s talk about tattoos. Don’t be alarmed, I’m talking about Maybelline® Eye Studio® Color Tattoo® 24HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow. This stuff is practically bulletproof. I discovered it about a year ago when I was searching for an affordable, cream based eyeshadow. I love this product because: 1. Intense Pigments 2. Long Lasting 3. No Creasing (Hallelujah!) 4. Easy Application I found it easiest to apply this using my finger. I always

Model Behavior

Hello, lovelies! So, yesterday morning was the first time I have ever shot at sunrise. It was gorgeous! Here are a few images from the shoot featuring aspiring model Stephanie Morales. She is absolutely perfect and one of my closest friends! Enjoy! P.S. I do composite cards, if you’re ever looking for a photog!

Little Miss Independence

Happy 4th of July! My shoots with Mel are always so much fun. You’ll be seeing a lot of her in upcoming posts. I like to refer to her as ‘the face of all my success”, because she is always modeling for me (my Instagram page is proof of that LOL). This past Monday, we had a blast shooting at A.C.’s Icees in Coconut Grove. It was about 95 degrees
