Weekend Snapshots

Some shots of what I've been up to lately:

One of my best friends in the world had the most gorgeous bridal shower, at the Grove Isle Hotel & Spa. Gold glittered mason jars held bunches of peonies and hydrangeas.  It was a beautiful event, and totally Pinterest worthy.  I helped photograph her shower and snapped these shots.

Style File: Spring/Summer Must Haves

I'm all about bold, bright prints and patterns for the warmer weather that's moving in.  Brands like Clover Canyon and Mara Hoffman are my current favorites for colorful pieces.  The Back Keyhole Gown by Mara Hoffman makes me want to take a vacation right.now.

Click on the below images to shop the styles; otherwise, they're linked to directly below:

Furor Moda's Vibrant Transparent Clutch - a chartreuse neon plexi clutch? Stocked by one of Miami's hottest clothing boutiques? Obviously.

Furor Moda's Alfon Stone Necklace - the perfect color to pair with all Spring essentials.
Yoshi Samra Campbell Flat; metallic two-toned perfection. 
Sam & Libby is being carried at Target now, and these Hayden Gladiators are super comfortable and have a little padding as well.  (Size up half a size).

Enjoy the rest of your week,
I know that for me, the weekend cannot come fast enough.

Style File: Blo Midtown, Miami

Happy weekend, everyone!  This is a quick post to let you all know I recently had the chance to get my hair blown out at Blo Dry Bar, in Midtown Miami.  I was in love with my blowout.  I've always had long hair which I hate to do myself, so I'm no stranger to getting a blowout.  I know when a blowout is terrible, good, and great.  This one was great.  They used shampoo from the UNITE (I believe it was the smoothing one, which is also sulfate free) and I received a conditioning treatment.  My hair is currently really long, and has a ton of split ends; tangles like crazy and is dry.
Whatever they did made my hair really soft, shiny and bouncy.  Also, if you're into great scents, request some mint extract oil for your shampoo/condition.  You will get an awesome minty aroma as they shampoo and condition your hair.  It feels cool and tingly on your scalp.  I recommend a cold water rinse so that your hair cuticle is sealed for even more shine.

I spoke with my stylist and told her I wanted some bounce on my ends, which she definitely achieved.  I also had her put product only on my ends (my hair tends to get greasy quickly).  Blo Midtown uses the Croc flat iron (pink) which is the best flat iron I have ever used.  Heats up super quick, gets really hot, and has 18 fully digital temp settings.  For my style,below, they did not use the flat iron on too many areas because of the type of look I wanted, but it was passed through my hair quickly.

OOTD: Work Wear Fashionable ESQ Style + Razon Eyewear Launch

I attended the launch party for a socially conscious sunglasses brand called Razon.  They're based out Miami and inspired by other brands who target social awareness and responsibility (ie: TOMS). You will throw down $305 for each pair of sunglasses which are manufactured from different types of wood (rose wood, and bamboo, for example).  Be mindful of the fact that from each purchase, Razon donates three pairs of eyeglasses to individuals in third world countries who would otherwise be unable to afford prescription lenses.  They can do this because they partner with Eyejusters, a technology which allows people to literally correct or tweak their prescription eyeglasses by twisting an adjustable knob.

Cheryl Fudge Fashion Camp, Miami

Have you guys heard of Cheryl Fudge Fashion Camp? I had no idea what this was, until I was invited to attend a DIY night at their boutique in Coral Gables, hosted by Juliana of A Fashion Soiree.  It is such a fun experience.  It's a store with endless creative possibilities.  You have the option of making purses, embellished tees, scarves, hair accessories, makeup bags, clutches, etc.
Once you figure out what you want to make, you can choose your fabric, ribbon trim, or other type of embellishment.

The girls from Cheryl Fudge will help you assemble your piece, and they will actually stitch, sew and put it all together for you. You can pick up your finished item at a later date.

It's a really cute idea to do in a group setting (they have large tables where you can all sit and craft together). It's family and kid friendly, as well (they assemble the item for you so no needles or scissors in your kiddos' hands).  They host birthday parties, bridal and baby showers also.

Check them out!
