Creative 5K’s Coming to Town

November 8th, 2012 | Posted in Health, Local by Meli

Although I’m not one of those girls that gets excited about going to the gym or working out (can’t I just stay in bed sipping on a mimosa?), I love the slew of creative 5K’s that are popping up all over the place lately! I think it’s not only a great way to get active, but also a unique way to spend time with friends and do something a little different. Although “different” may be easy to find elsewhere, it is definitely lacking in Miami so I am very glad to see some of these quirky races coming to our neck of the woods.

Here are just a few that are coming our way;

1. 5K Foam Fest || 2. Color Me Rad 5K || 3. Pretty Muddy || 4. Dirty Girl Mud Race

Would you participate in a fun 5K?
I think I’m going to attempt the Color Me Rad race in February! Any takers?

My Summer Essentials

June 21st, 2012 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

I adore summer. Not only does it bring my birthday, but it means lighter & breezier clothes and a more laid back attitude. Let’s face it, us Miami girls know how to do this time of year right, and I’m loving all the options this season to both have fun and act your age. I figured it had been a while since I had put together a style collage, so here you go! Two very different looks for two very different vibes: fun, flirty and spontaneous & edgy, sexy and mysterious.

Best part? I’ve constructed both looks to be extremely budget friendly! This gives you more cash in your bank account to put towards that vacation to your favorite sunny destination!

Edgy look;
F21 tank; Old Navy maxi skirt; Go Jane sandals; name plate necklace; floppy sun hat; Essie’s No More Film

Fun look;
Chevron romper; Go Jane wedges; triad necklace; chevron stackable rings; Essie’s Bachelorette Bash

Fun Manicures

August 25th, 2011 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

Manicures seem to be the theme of the blog this week, and such a hot trend right now! Although I do love doing my own nails and see it as a form of therapy, I wish I was talented enough to do the elaborate designs I see on other’s nails. Unfortunately, my hands can be pretty shaky – especially using the left hand, so I don’t think I will ever be that successful. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t collect some of my favorite creative and fun manicures to day dream about.
