Are you dreaming of a hot summer day by the ocean during this cold winter? I must admit this winter has been particularly kind to Miami, leaving me jonesing for some cold weather. And although I have hit the beach a few times I haven’t looked this smokin. How dangerously fall/winter would it be to rock a smokey eye at the beach like Elite model Elizabeth Zayas our shoot?
I recently collaborated with Maximilian Rivera on this rad beach shoot. For this look I created a sultry black smokey eye and kept the rest of the face pretty bare except for some highlighting and contouring.
If you’re feeling adventurous and want to rock a smokey eye to the beach sometime this winter, you should check out my Smokey Eye Tut. It breaks down and demystifies the elusive smokey eye into 6 easy steps.

Capture Fashion Editorial | Body Talk
Makeup & Hair by Me
Saturday morning I teamed up with wardrobe stylist & fashion blogger Amanda Del Duca to do hair & makeup for a Capture Fashion editorial. Capture Fashion is “not a street style blog and it is not a fashion magazine”. It’s a fab combination of both. The Sweat and Sparkles mood board Amanda sent over for the Athletic Glam themed shoot was so rad. After going over the deets we agreed that a metallic gold eye with a bold pink lip would be a great way to create serious glam factor.
I’m an avid reader of Capture Fashion- so it was amazing getting an inside look on Amanda’s process. I am LOVING the final images shot by David Lundblad. Check out the full Body Talk editorial and shop the look here.
I recently took a little break from life and decided to go on a staycation. I was feeling overwhelmed and in dire need of mental de-cluttering so I impulsively booked a room at The Standard Hotel and Spa in Miami so I clear my head.
When I first arrived at The Standard I realized I couldn’t have chosen a better spa-resort. The entire property is totally zen-ed out- fully equipped with minimalist rooms, a stellar spa, and tons of wellness infused classes and workshops. My first impulse was to create a rigid schedule jam packed with yoga classes, spa sessions, and take a million photos for my blog. What ended up actually happening is a different story. I actually spent the entire staycation practicing the art of non-doing. Breathing, meditating, cloud watching, laying by the pool, watching the sun set, sleeping in, sipping on wine, jumping in the ocean, eating fresh fruits and veggies, melting into the hot marble hammam…That is it and that is all. What was it not?- Phone calls, social media sharing, shopping, email checking, obsessive documenting. It was quiet and introspective and delicious. Exactly everything I needed.
Where do you go when you need to let it all go?
