Kim Kardashian visits Miami Beach to host the Midori Beachside Bash at The Delano Hotel

Image
Sazoneros!! I'm happy to report that I enjoyed a whirlwind of events and designer swimwear shows during this year's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami. I hope you all checked out my coverage from the shows on Twitter and on Facebook. Although I didn't get a chance to attend the Midori Beachside Bash event hosted by Kim Kardashian on July 20th at The Delano, I definitely wanted to share these amazing images I received this week (courtesy of Seth Browarnik from WorldRedEye.com). If you're checking out Kim's dress on the left, it's actually a Versace piece that was definitely inspired by our tropical climate (the print on the dress featured neon green seashells and star fish). At the event, Kim was accompanied by her beau Kanye West and she chatted with her friends Jonathan Cheban and Larsa Pippen (pictured below).Since we have another month of summer to enjoy, Kim shared her easy summer beauty tips with guests that night. According to Kim, "the key to…

Dolores Cortés highlights the beauty of Miami Beach during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim

Before heading to this year's Dolores CortésSwim Show, I participated in a "behind-the-scenes" tour of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim hosted by DHL. This was a wonderful experience for me because we had the opportunity to have an intimate interview with Mrs. Cortés before her show. Dolores was proud to be the only European designer showcasing her collection this year and she shared a little bit of her family history with us while recalling how her mother began the company in Spain back in the 1950's. It was truly inspirational to see how far their designs have evolved over time. The designer returned to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim this year with a "Miami Beach" inspired collection! The colors were spectacular and Dolores made sure to add hints of gold to every piece because she feels it gives every design a touch of elegance. I agree!! Check out my pictures below and enjoy Dolores's sexy bikinis, swimsuits and cover up dresses.

Christina Milian and Brooke Burke attend Lisa Blue Show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2013 has finally kicked-off and the celebrities are making their presence known in Miami Beach! On July 19th, I attended the Lisa Blue Swim Show at The Raleigh Hotel where the beautiful R&B singer Christina Milian (pictured on the right) and Brooke Burke, Host of Dancing with the Stars, were sitting front row to watch the latest swimwear by Designer Lisa Burke. The show began with a slow paced song to get everyone in a relaxed state of mind. Models wore elegant white Grecian inspired swimsuits along with gold adornments on their hair. But the tempo quickly changed and the audience enjoyed an eclectic show featuring a fun little strut down the catwalk by Flamenco dancers and a live paper dragon performance. Lisa Burke incorporated images of dragons in her 2013 swimwear collection because according to Lisa "a dragon kept coming to me whilst mediating in Bali last year." Talk about intense inspiration! Make sure to check out the phenomenal he…

My Day at Lapis: The Spa at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach is part of Miami Spa Month!

Image
Sazoneros!! Did you know that before this week, I had never been to a spa to enjoy the relaxation one feels after a full body massage? It's true! After hearing about Miami Spa Month, I decided it was finally time to give it a try. If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that I'm a huge fan of the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. The luxury and service level at this hotel is top tier in my book so when they invited me to unwind with a complimentary Swedish Rub Down and a Bath Soak...I couldn't resist!!! Well, I scheduled my first massage for 10 a.m. which is a great idea because then you'll have the opportunity to indulge in all of the amenities found at The Lapis Spa till 6:30 p.m. on the day of your visit. I also received access to the outdoor pool of the hotel for participating in Miami Spa Month so I definitely felt like a tourist for the day (I was in total relaxation mode)!  Before I began my treatments, I was given a tour of the ground floor of the Lapis Sp…
