Valerie and I met through my old job about 3 years ago.
She is one of the few people I have met here in Miami who was raised here and still makes Miami her permanent home.
It’s hard for me to believe that Valerie is 1- from here and 2- that I haven’t known her longer because when I’m with her, I’m quickly reminded of Kristin who I have known almost my whole life.
Valerie is a fun, strong, easy going, hands-on mama to her wild and charismatic Kali.
I miss working with this lady but, I’m glad I have her as a friend and I can always call her for a fun time out. 🙂

Yesterday we went over to our friends Marie and Sunday’s home to celebrate their son Ade’s seventh birthday.
On the way there, Will was in denial of how old Ade is already thinking that he was turning four.
Yeah, like three years ago!!
Ade’s birthday is a big bash every year and I’m happy to say that with the exception of one year, I have been there for every single celebration since he turned one.
It was wonderful to have spent the day with my Haitian family.
Happy birthday Ade, you rock star!!!
(P.S.- Even though I’m a day late, I’m linking to
Mandy for Steppin Out)
Oh, and Happy July 4th everyone! 🙂 Have fun and be safe!

Last night I went out with the girls I used to work with.
2 of us have since left the company (me included) but, we all worked together for quite sometime and got to be the best of friends.
It is always a good time when we are ALL out. (and even better when everything is free and comped!!)
We started the evening at Bond St at the rooftop of the Townhouse Hotel with sweet saketinis and sushi.
After everyone had left, Jocelyn and I walked over to the W hotel to use their fabulous bathroom and check out some of their wonderful art. (Basquiat, Warhol, Condo, Hirst)
I rode home (on Sally) by myself and it was a beautiful night out.
I took my time enjoying the moon and the art on Lincoln Rd.
Are you all ready for the moon tomorrow night?
It is going to be HUGE!!!!!! (the biggest and closest it’s been in 19 years HUGE!)
Have a great weekend everyone. 🙂

I celebrated 4 birthdays this weekend.
It started friday night out with the girls to celebrate Tamara’s and Valerie’s birthdays.
We all had a great time at News Lounge where we scored our own private Moroccan style room.
We drank, we ate, we had chocolate fondue for desert, it was super fun!
On saturday we went to Sofia’s first birthday party and later on at night I went over to uncle Darren’s house where we celebrated our friend Chloe’s birthday.
I had birthday cake twice that day. YUM!
Sunday we had a pretty chill family day.
We had brunch, we went over to Collins park, the W hotel.
It was a great weekend.
How about you guys? Did you have a good weekend?

I had so much fun going to see
Hole with my girls!
It was pouring while I was getting ready which made the decision of “what to wear?” a little hard but, I chose to go with one of my favorite looks, a dress with boots.
I always like the contrast of a dress (soft) and boots (hard). (I often wonder why I live in Miami since it’s hot most of the year and I don’t get to wear my boots often enough.)
As far as accessories, I borrowed Will’s bag (his murse :)) and what else does a mommy and wife need other than her engagement/wedding ring? (I usually wear earrings but since I knew there was going to be some head banging, I decided to skip them.)
The getting ready:
the dress, vintage
French Connection. The bag, I scream seams

The weekend starts now and it starts off being a rockin’ weekend for me.
I’m going to see Hole perform tonight and I’m so excited about it!
Me, the girls (K, Jocelyn and Valerie) and Courtney Love.
What a way to kick things off for 4th of July weekend. 🙂
I wish you all a wonderful holiday.
Be safe and have fun!!

He turned 6 last week and we went to his birthday party yesterday to celebrate his birthday with him, his family and friends.
I have gone to his birthday parties since he turned 1. I can’t believe he is 6 already and that this time around I had Lily with me.
Life. Wow, amazing!
Ade, the handsome birthday boy
