10 Things You May Not Know About Me

Who else is riding the,”I can’t believe it’s 2017 train!!”? It felt like 2016 started and ended with the blink of an eye. 2016 was a great year, and I am excited to see what 2017 will bring. Are you?

My blog will be celebrating it’s one year anniversary on January 15th, 2017, and I thought it would be the perfect time to share more about the gal behind the Join Me in Miami blog. So here goes!

A day with Celebrity Hair Stylist Danny Jelaca, Miami Beach

Danny Jelaca is the talented celebrity hair stylist who has worked with celebrities such as Naomi Campbell, Ivanka Trump, Sharon Stone, Jennifer Lopez, and many more. Working as a hair stylist in Miami Beach, for over 20 years, he opened his namesake salon in South Beach’s upscale South Pointe neighborhood.

Named by Allure Magazine as a makeover pro, and featured in InStyle magazine as “best cut in Miami,” I gladly accepted his invitation to style my hair, and timed it to coincide with my red carpet coverage of Destination Fashion at the Bal Harbor Shops.

My White Christmas Tree (Merry Christmas!)

As Christmas draws closer, it signifies the end of another year. It’s time to think about the past year, new year’s resolutions, gather with friends, family, loved ones, and celebrate over good food, laughter and drinks (be sure to check out my Chocolate Coquito recipe -it’s sure to be a hit at your next holiday gathering). Just a quick post to wish you a very Merry Christmas / Hannukah / Kwanzaa, and a Happy New Year!

Night out in Miami, New World Symphony Holiday Concert

Growing up, my parents strongly encouraged my sister and I to get involved in the arts. I played the piano, was part of a singing group, while my sister was part of the same singing group, and also a local dance group. I recently rediscovered my love for the arts, and joined the Friends of New World Symphony.  Friends of New World Symphony promotes classical music to young music lovers, and philanthropists via education, community initiatives, and chic social events.

Panorama Tower, Brickell

Ladies & Gents! Are you ready for Panorama Tower? It is currently under construction in the heart of Brickell, and will be the tallest building in Florida at a whopping 85 stories tall. Panorama Tower will offer one, two and three bedroom apartments with a full suite of luxury amenities.

Luke’s Lobster, Brickell City Centre

There’s a brand new restaurant at the newly opened Brickell City Centre, and it’s called Luke’s Lobster! Luke’s Lobster grand opening took place on December 5th at Brickell City Centre, and is now ready for business. If you’re looking for a restaurant that serves delicious lobster rolls in Miami, I’ve got the place for you.  Hailed as the “best lobster roll” in New York city and the country, it is exciting to have this addition to the Miami food scene.

WAGS Miami Party

Ladies & gents! I’m excited to share photos from the WAGS Miami party-“The Guest List.” The star-studded event included the WAGS Miami cast, as well as their friends and local Miami socialites.  I received the invite from Vanessa Cole, one of the stars of WAGS Miami. She is also an accomplished entrepreneur and real estate investor. Vanessa is a very passionate businesswoman, and eventually plans to focus her passion on inspiring businesswomen to be successful.
