SLS South Beach

The decor is Implacable! 
The SLS signature and the South Beach Art Deco flavor blend in a very sophisticated way, a great addition to Miami. The group also brought their amazing restaurants; Katsuya and The Bazaar both on top of my list of favorite places to dine in Los Angeles. I love The Bazaar but I was a little disappointed with the Miami version; I didn't like the Cuban fusion into such already perfect cuisine. As far as Katsuya, I only had snacks at Hyde Beach and it was quite good. 
I love the Beach in Miami but with such inviting pools and service at the Hotel I left the beach as second choice. I had amazing relaxing days by the pools. If you want a little more privacy you have the option to stay at the "guest only" pool, across from the cabanas but if you want a little bit more excitement, and more people "Hyde Beach" pool will be the perfect choice. 
Over all I had an amazing week at the SLS South Beach and I totally recommend!

I was there last Jully but couldn't waste on sharing such cool photos and experience.

Thanksgiving Dinner & Decor

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I just would like to share a little bit of my table decor and moments. This time was small and intimate. I had a lot of fun setting the table, cooking and just laughing away with friends!

Halloween 2012 - Costumes Recap

Halloween, as always was a lot of fun!  I know it has been a while and I've been the worst blogger lately, I almost didn't post, but since the costume process took a lot of work I decided to post a recap of the three days! 

PARTY 1 - The Wild Leopard
Inspired by my leopard print obsession and the head band I had purchased from Asos a while ago, which I'm glad I had the chance to wear during Halloween.
Talita Correa, Ludi Delfino, me and Maura G.
 PARTY 2 - The Harlequin
Another print obsession infused by Balmain SS 2013... OMG it was so hard to find the diamond print unitard or a fabric to make one but I was saved by e-Bay!!!  Believe it or not it was a kids size XL and it did not look like this when I got it. The lovely hat is by Ariane Millinery my favorite hat shop in LA, I'm so glad I had the chance to wear it a second time.
Me, Maura G & Giselle Claudino (styled by me). Me & Cedric Benaroch
 PARTY 3 - Dia de los Muertos Sugar Skull
Since the real Halloween was Wednesday even though I was exhausted I just couldn't pass the chance to dress up one more time.... lol!  I always wanted to do the Dia de los Muertos (sugar skull) make-up.  The make-up was done by the very talented and super fast (20 min) artist Jamie from paintonyourface.com to bad you can't see the glitter in the pics... we were sparkling on the streets of Hancock Park!
Me & Lorrayne Mathias

In New York for VS Fashion Show 2012

This was really exciting... I was actually there!!! Kind of last minute plans with some obstacles, canceled flights but we made it! I thought I had to save the post until the show aired on TV but with the amount of press out why not now,  right? What an adventure... going to NY for 24 hours with a storm watch... but Lorrayne & I were really excited specially to see Alessandra Ambrosio wearing the fantasy bra! Almost no sleep... travel with your best friend is a lot of fun and since we don't get to do this all the time we forgot we were on the redeye and talked most of the flight... we got to NY early then we added one more, Renata.  More excitement... a quick nap and it was almost show time. End up not wearing what I planned... but didn't really matter was super cold and wet and comfort was more important. The storm wasn't as bad, at least for me and Lorrayne brazilian/californian we were actually excited about the snow! 
What a production... OMG! It is a real show... 
The transformation of The Stage/Runway, when you thought it couldn't get better it goes beyond your expectations  
The music... Rihanna, Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber can it get any sexier than that? Rihanna was so amazing I already got tickets for her concert in April of next year in LA.
Impeccable sexy girls! Excuse me, I know they work hard for those bodies... impossible not to get jealous... They are like flawless you actually stare to find something wrong, lol...  I couldn't believe Adriana gave birth over a month ago and looked the way she did, amazing! Ale couldn't look any better and expensive wearing the orchid wings and the VS Floral Fantasy Bra set by London Jewelers. 
Great fashion crowd and a spectacular time!
After the show we went back to Renata's to change and off to a girls dinner at Milos... by the way an amazing Greek Restaurant. Since we were in the City that never sleeps it doesn't end there, we met with Ale at the Victoria Secret's after Party. What a fun time!!! Cant wait to watch all over again this time from home. 
The show will air on CBS, Tuesday, December 4th, 10 PM Eastern/ 9 PM Central.
Partners in crime... Lorrayne Mathias in Rack 75, Renata Maciel in Issa, the view from her place in NY, VS invites, Snow, I wore 10 Crosby by Derek Lam Leather Tulip Dress, Burberry Coat, Balenciaga Booties and Chanel Bag.
