Did you know that here in America, 1 out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year? And just this year alone (2013), over 39,000 women lost their lives battling breast cancer? Ready to combine our powers and tackle this battle? Here’s how you can help…

Over 30 South Florida Fashion & Beauty Bloggers have joined forces for the month of October to raise funds for breast cancer.

For this year’s Fashion for a Cause Campaign, bloggers teamed up with Miami brand Peace Love World, we modeled and styled their new breast cancer collection to raise proceeds for Susan G. Komen For The Cure Foundation. Our goal is to raise funds, honor & encourage all the strong women fighting against breast cancer– because “where there is hope, there is life.”

The images of our photo shoot will be displayed at Bloomingdales in Aventura Mall and The Falls Shopping Center till the end of the month where now, you can also buy the Peace Love World collection. The entire campaign was photographed at the Sagamore, Art Hotel over a 2 day period by the talented Alexander Tamargo.

Want a chance meet some of the other bloggers in the collaboration? On October 17 from 6 to 9pm, be sure to come out to our Fashion for a Cause Campaign called Bloomies and Bloggers — where real runway models and bloggers (like us) will hit the catwalk in Peace Love World attire. Plus, you too can get VIP treatment, as there will be a hair styling station by So Blo, cupcakes by BunnieCakes, sips by Societe Perrier & more. For exact info & details follow our facebook page, see you there!

A few weeks back at Miami International Fashion Week, I signed up for a Rimmel London modeling contest. I honestly only signed up because I was asked to do so, and I was getting free goodies :) But, the thought that I’d even come close to winning didn’t even cross my mind.

Anyway, about a week ago I got an email that I was selected as one of the top 20 semi-finalists. I was (and still am) very flattered that I was chosen to move forward in this nation-wide contest!

As one of the the top 20 finalists, I was asked to send in a few extra head shots. Well, Vannia and I had a mini-photo-shoot to get a few different shots to send to the judges. Not only is Vannia a great writer and a fashionista, but I also learned that she’s a pretty good photographer! I wonder what else she’ll pull out of her sleeve! ;)

Wavy hair, straight hair, and loads of make-up later…we chose these shots to send in.  I’d thought it’d be fun to share them with you, so here they are!


No matter what happens, all of this has been a blast; and I’m proud to say that little ‘ol 5’1 me was chosen as a semi-finalist in a modeling contest. (Okay, okay it’s not runway modeling but still!)

Did I forget to mention the PRIZE?! The top 3 finalist will be flown to New York City where they will meet the Rimmel London Team and Storm Model Management. From there the grand prize winner will be chosen, and that lucky gal will get a $30,000 year contract with Rimmel London.

YES I JUST SAID $30,000 YEAR CONTRACT (that’s a lifetimes worth of money for a college girl).

So, all I can ask YOU to do is to keep your fingers crossed! I’ll keep you posted with the results.

May the best “model” win! :)

On the corner of 17 Street and Washington Avenue, located just two blocks from Lincoln Road, is the New World Center, home of the New World Symphony (America’s Orchestral Academy).

The center was built as an innovative facility to be used for a blend of music, arts, and recreational space. The iconic building and location is now a new landmark for Miami Beach and won the 2012 AIA Institute Honor Award for Regional and Urban Design.

The New World Center has state-of-the-art technical capabilities, both inside and outside. A live WALLCAST™ allows individuals to experience select events and concerts on a soaring, 7,000-square-foot projection. These concerts are free and open to the public.

It always feels a little bit like Christmas when I get a package in the mail…. This time, the package was filled with surprises and I got to discover new beauty and life-style products!

I’m talking about my Birchbox, a monthly delivered box filled with personalized samples, just for me! When you join, you fill out  a beauty profile telling the experts more about you and your lifestyle. Then, each month you’ll receive your very own box.

This month was my first month and I loved it! I’m definitely one to follow fashion trends, but beauty products tend to fall in the cracks. In fact, just a few months ago was the first time I heard about BB cream. So for me, this is definitely a good investment! :)

Here’s what I got in the Sptember Birchbox:

  • The Fall Lookbook – A mini-magazine filled with Fall trends.
  • Color Club Polish – Color #968, Status Update (Dark Grey.)
  • Twirl by Kate Spade – A new fruity and floral fragrance.
  • Sedu Pure Aragan Oil – An anti-frizz polishing hair treatment.
  • Twistband Hair Tie – A navy blue snag-free elastic hair tie.
  • WEI To Go – The perfect sleepover kit, including a gel face cleanser and a moisturizing face tint.
  • tili Bag – The perfect little plastic bag to store your travel sized items.


Loved: Twirl perfume spray
Could live without: tili bag
