seeking the perfect smile with invisalign

Like a lot of people, I had braces as a teenager. Also like a lot of people, I didn’t do much in the area of wearing my retainers after my braces came off. That’s why, a decade later, I’m embarking on a new adventure: Invisalign. While my teeth aren’t terrible, they are crooked enough to bother me. I find myself generally “smizing” in photos rather than smiling, because when shadows hit my teeth at certain angles they look quite bad, in my opinion. Like other bones in your body, teeth age. They move, they shift. Now, at age 30, it became clear to me that my teeth were only going to continue to move, and it was time to do something about it.

celebrate the every day with mionetto

I was sent product from Mionetto Prosecco, but my opinions are strictly based on my own thoughts and experience.

While I love having occasions to celebrate–birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and so on–I also love finding small reasons to celebrate every day. There is so much to enjoy and be grateful for, and I believe cherishing those little moments are a little key to happiness. Why wait for moments to happen, when you can create them yourself? I’m not the only one who feels this way–Mionetto Prosecco shares this idea!

standard mornings

What better way to start the day than surrounded by nature? As a condo dweller, I love wandering around the Standard Miami Beach and having some serious garden envy. From totem poles to hammocks, a fire pit to mud baths, there’s plenty of ways to engage with nature while you unwind. Of course I coordinated with the manicured yard with burlap Proenza Schouler sandals and a nice spring floral shift by Chloe. Easy does it.

miami music week 2016

This year, I had the best experience at Miami Music Week. It’s funny, most of the year I kind of lay low–just like to travel, relax, sleep, and be pretty low key. Then Music Week rolls around and I remember just how much I enjoy it. I got to watch and meet some of my favorite DJs like Michael Calfan and Klingande, got a sweet pair of V-Moda headphones, and also met with the awesome team from Swatch. Big shoutout to Glamsquad for keeping me festival ready when my energy levels were low.

‘Til next year…
