summer lovin with ewc

In Miami, the weather makes it feel like summer is pretty much year round–but for me, summer is a distinct season–the sun stays out longer, the balmy weather calls for minimal clothing, pool parties and brunches are every weekend, and Memorial Day & Fourth of July BBQs make summer especially celebratory and unique.

the dark side

Ok… that’s exaggerating. But going from platinum blonde to a more natural hue had me a little freaked out at first. Not so much while I was at the salon, more so when I looked in the mirror the next morning and didn’t quite recognize myself. However, sometimes you just know the time is right to switch up your look. I trusted my hair guru Ellie to take my uber blonde hair to a tone that was way less maintenance and more like my natural hair color. And now, I love it.

This week, it’s a new month and a full moon and boy do I feel it. I’m gonna lay low, mind my business, and tend to my blog. I’m also starting to go to a Bikram studio. Has anyone tried it? Hot yoga is definitely challenging, but I love the feeling of savasana at the end, to me it makes it all worth it. Happy June! xx

event recap: loveyourREALselfie

This weekend started off with a bang at the Aerie #LoveYourREALSelfie event at Mondrian South Beach. I had a great time interacting with party guests, my fellow bloggers, and the team from Aerie for a perfect poolside day celebrating natural and unphotoshopped beauty. The event brought out ladies of all ages–from 6 to 60! It was amazing to see how much fun everyone had with the complimentary selfie sticks, loving their real selfies. The event had hosts like DJ babe Hannah Bronfman, actress Mae Whitman, and blogger babe Sincerely Jules, and Gray Malin was recruited to fly overhead in a helicopter to shoot the largest selfie around the pool and deck area of Mondrian. It was amazing! I was relatively unfamiliar with the movement prior to this event here in Miami, so let me share some of the details. mondrian south beach   Continue Reading…
