George Malkemus, President of Manolo Blahnik, Launches 2012 Spring Collection in Miami

Manolo Blahnik has become a household name thanks to the brand's endorsement on the popular series "Sex & The City." Sarah Jessica Parker's character, Carrie Bradshaw, is obsessed with her Manolo Blahnik collection and let's face it...we don't blame her! The high end shoe brand has a flare of eleganc e and glamour every woman desires. Last week, I had the pleasure of interviewing George Malkemus (pictured on the right along with yours truly) who is the President behind this powerful worldwide brand. George arrived in Miami on Thursday, January 26th, to officially launch Manolo Blahnik's 2012 Spring collection inside the Saks Fifth Avenue store at the Bal Harbour Shops . During the event, shoe lovers had the opportunity to meet and speak with George about the latest designs and colors for the season. Guests were able to enjoy champagne, hors d'oeuvre and a little music while shopping around the shoe salon for their favorite new pair of heels. C

Bal Harbour Art Nights Celebrates the Grand Opening of the new Stella McCartney Store

I've been craving a little fashion in my life so I finally attended my first ever Bal Harbour Art Nights this past Wednesday, January 11th. The most important event on my agenda: to swing by Stella McCartney's new Bal Harbour Store. Bal Harbour Magazine hosted a cocktail party inside McCartney's store while customers perused through the designer's Spring/Summer 2012 ready-to-wear collection. During the event, I had the pleasure of making new fashionable friends (meet Danny and Alexie pictured above) and I also reunited with my fellow bloggers who I always love to see around town. If you missed this week's event, make sure you mark your calendar for February 8th and March 29th. That's when fashion and art will collide once again at the Bal Harbour Shops !

Happy New Year and get ready for a fabulous year of events, charities and your favorite celebrities on Miami Beats and Sazon . My very first event of the year was super fun so I had to share it with you. On Thursday, January 5th, I attended the grand opening party for Chalk Ping Pong and Billiards Lounge located in Miami Beach (1234 Washington Avenue). This place is not only a fun concept but it looks like you're actually hanging out at a sexy lounge on the beach.
