Miami Swim Week 2017 Recap

Miami Swim Week 2017

SWIM MIAMI – W SOUTH BEACH | SATURDAY JULY 21, 2017 | Miami Swim Week has come and gone. I prepared for the shows, made sure I did all my RSVPs on time, and checked my calendar constantly. Wanted to do so many things all week, but ended up only attending the Saturday & Sunday events/shows. I’m still recuperating from the weekend. The heat was unbearable and high heels doesn’t help. But it’s all so worth it! I always end up meeting the most fabulous people at these type of events. Oh and we can’t forget about the beautiful models and the amazing designs. Take a look at my 2 day Swim Miami adventures below. I wore the perfect Miami dress at Miami Swim Week this year! I felt amazing in this dress from Agaci and received so many compliments. This palm print is here to stay, and found some similar styles for you all to check out. Started my Saturday morning at the influencer hour with TAVIK and KEVIN.MURPHY. I was so happy that local hairstylists were there to make sure we were ready for the day. The soft curls were done by using all KEVIN.MURPHY products, and let me […]

Event Recap: #MiamiSwimWeek 2015

Oh what a week! Runway shows, brunch and late night parties – Miami Swim Week 2015 was full of endless events. I had a chance to attend some of the events but missed quite a few. Unfortunately, a lot of the shows overlapped. My calendar for the week looked extremely colorful, which made me excited but also gave me a little anxiety. I literally had to uber from hotel to hotel in Miami Beach for 48 hours straight. With Eid and friends in town, it felt like my weekend was a little more hectic than it should be. So basically no sleep but non-stop fun! Now that I’ve rested, here’s my recap on some of the events I attended. 1. |Jul 14| Kicked off Swim Week with Miami Magazine’s Splashion 2015. I was a little bummed because I missed the Laundry by Shelli Segal runway show but had the chance to watch Adam Lambert perform up close and personal. Stay tuned for some adorable Laundry by Shelli Segal swimsuit inspo on the blog soon. 2. |Jul 18| Brunch with Glamour Magazine and Daniela Ramirez of Nany’s Klozet. There was also some much needed makeup touch-ups by Neutrogena cosmetics. 3. |Jul 18| Quick stop at Boxycharm event to meet […]

I had the pleasure of staying at the luxurious W Fort Lauderdale hotel over the Labor Day weekend.

A beautiful sunrise and hotel room service! I’m not a breakfast person, but it’s different when the view is just perfect and the breakfast is exceptionally healthy. The egg white omelette with spinach and mushrooms that I ordered was cooked to perfection. I would be such a morning person if I had breakfast like this every day. Spent most of my time on the ocean view balcony just admiring the nature. It was the perfect day and weather! I […]

Luxury Staycation at the W Miami

Update: Viceroy Hotel & Spa will be re-branded as W Miami. This past weekend, I had a pleasure of staying at the gorgeous Viceroy Miami W Miami. It was definitely a luxury staycation and I enjoyed every minute of it! Hurricane Erika was supposed to visit but thankfully it dissipated before I checked in. I got a lot of sunshine and a little bit rain but that’s just Florida for ya’. W Miami is a 5-star hotel located in Downtown Miami. The intricate design and attention-to-detail service as you enter the hotel immediately gives this place an ultra luxe vibe. Every single staff I encountered were courteous and extremely knowledgeable about my stay. This hotel is known as the ultimate spot for relaxation-seekers. Viceroy Hotel & Spa Lobby Day One: My first reaction when I entered the room was a lot of “Oh my goodness.” Ten minutes after settling into my dream suite, I was greeted with Veuve Clicquot Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. With a glass of champagne in hand, I already felt relaxed and was taking in all the beautiful designs around the suite. The colors and decoration of the suite just felt so homely and luxurious. Kelly Wearstler designed the suite with everything from chic, colorful to eye-catching patterns. Each room in the hotel comes […]
