If Miami were a perfume, it would smell like coconuts, sunshine and dash of mojito mint wrapped up in a very expensive and beautiful bottle…Eau de Miami…can’t you just smell it?  It’s easy to know why Miami is such a hot spot for celebrities..it’s warm and sunny, it’s always packed with beautiful people and the nightlife and beaches offer something no one can refuse.   Miami is in the United States but many will definitely tell you, it’s a country of it’s own. It has a mix of Latin, European and Island culture which allow this city to be…

Paris is like my second home…and not because we have an apartment there or anything…but because when I’m there I am completely at peace and happy…the kind of feeling you only get when you’re “home”.And even though my heart has and always will belong to Miami…my soul is probably Parisian born ;) Here are a couple of the things I learned this time around in beautiful Paris:9) The best way to see a city is by using your legs.

Well, it’s my annual return to my favorite place in the whole entire world…Paris (Paree…see, I did learn something in French. Never pronounce the “s”…makes you sound like a tourist….which I clearly am not).And Paris is of course Paris…fabulous without words and chic without trying.It is the center of all the things that I love and hold dearly to my materialistic heart and shallow mind:shoes, bags, haute couture, caviar, champagne, wine, chocolates, sense of style, crepes, crazy motorcycle drivers (I have a slight thing for bad boys), art, over the top expensive “nothings” like scarves, gloves, lingerie and caps.I love this…
