Food Critics

Tonight I was supposed to go down to Miami with my sister Sydnee to be in the audience at the X-Factor auditions but the live taping portion was cancelled for some reason so instead we had sister dinner date. At the beginning of the summer we decided we would go around the city looking for the best Sushi places. With this, we made up a grading system to rank the sushi places and have been playing food critic. Tonight we tried a place called Toro sushi and it ranked pretty high on our scale!

Although the restaurant didn't make a perfect score, our outfits sure did! Here's the break down:

 Sydnee went for a very preppy look tonight by wearing an Abercrombie top, this seasons colored Skinnies from American Eagle and my Steve Madden wedges. She paired the outfit with simple pearl studs,  a pearl necklace and Ali Brin Creations charm bracelet.

Her makeup was very simple with neutral shadow, winged eyeliner and a touch of blush.
 I on the other hand went for a severe look as usual. I was rocking my American Eagle purple polka dot skinnies (that we just unpacked at the last floorset), a simple black AE cami, Miley Cyrus denim button down, thrifted belt, and Bamboo Shoes black booties. I was of course wearing a slew of different Ali Brin Creations!!

For necklaces I had my chunky hex nut choker with my classic key necklace. One of my rings is an African wrap ring and the other is a recycled plastic bow ring. I was rocking an arm party with my fish tailed wire bangle, zipper wrap bracelet and color block gold chain bracelet.
My makeup was a Gaga inspired look. I did the edge triangle and crease of my eyes with black shadow and lined the edge of my lids with liquid liner. I finished the top lids with black polka dots along the outside of the black shadow and finished off the look with a fierce red lip.

We ate some amazing sushi at Toro and looked fabulous at the same time☼

The Show Must Go On!

Hey there viewers!!
I haven't posted all summer because I have been so beyond busy but here's why:
At the beginning of the summer I headed home to south Florida to take some classes, work at Holt as an intern and return to my job at American Eagle. For May and June my life was driving to Boca to take class and heading straight down to Miami for my internship with Elisea Nir Wolff at Holt, a luxury evening wear and swimwear label. On my second day with the company I was already toting around Prada shoes for a photo shoot with Adriana De Moura of the Real Housewives of Miami. Needless to say this internship was an adventure!
Here are some behind the scenes pics from the photo shoot!

I didnt know what to expect from Adriana being that she is very well known and a reality TV star but she was so incredibly nice and very polite! She is known for speaking many different languages and was speaking spanish, french and english the second she walked through the door! She gave me the keys to her car so I could get her shoes from the trunk and wow she has great taste in shoes!

Oh AND the whole scenario was being videoed for a French reality show doing a segment on Elisea!

For the first two months of summer I was taking classes in Boca everyday then heading down to Miami afterward, working at AE on the weekends and trying to make some Ali Brin Creations in between. Once my classes ended, I was working at Holt, working at AE every other day and making Creations for my summer jewelry show.

Last week I started working again as the treasurer of the Rotaract club for UNF and had to cut back on my time with Holt. With my extra time I have been able to organize a budget for the club and continue making inventory for my show  which was today (I had a great turnout!).

More pictures to come from the show and I am not finished with Holt yet; I am trying to organize a photoshoot with pop star Ali Lee, singer of "keep it right there" .

Stay tuned for more of my end-of-summer adventures☼
