My Secret Spots in Miami- exploring my city in ROTHY's.

11/16/2018


Miami is such a magical city- with hidden gems in every corner. However, I feel tourists don't get to see the REAL Miami. 

When I was little and we would visit Miami, we would spend days inside a mall. And now I can't believe many tourist don't get out of Miami Beach. Yes, the beach is STUNNING but there is so much more to this city.

So today, as someone who has been living in Miami for 12 years, I'm going to show you three of my favorite areas in the city, + some recommendations about where to go in each area, while wearing the most comfortable shoes from Rothy's! 


About ROTHY'S

As a new mom who is always on the go, I really appreciate comfort more than ever. However, that doesn't mean I want to give up style. I'm absolutely loving these two pairs from Rothy's. They are SO cute and versatile, plus they fit like a glove. 

But wait, the shoes are also produced sustainably !! They are made from 100% recycled water bottles... isn't that incredible? The brand has already repurposed 11 million water bottles. That's so amazing and I hope many brands follow their footsteps (pun intended!)



Get your comfy shoes on...and let's start this little tour around Miami.


MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT

The basics: The Design District is a new neighborhood dedicated to innovative design, luxurious fashion, breathtaking architecture, art galleries, showrooms and dining experiences. 


FOR BRUNCH: OTL
What to order: some of my favorites are the overnight oats and the smoked salmon bagel...but everything is delicious!

PICTURE-WORTHY SPOTS
Walk it from corner to corner and you will find Instagram-worthy spots in every corner- from art installations to stunning architecture and art walls. 

Don't miss:
- Buckminster Fuller's "Fly's Eye Dome": it's a 24-foot Monohex geodesic dome that you can find in the center of Palm Court.
- Netscape: a 24 seat web of hanging chairs by Konstanin.

Here I'm wearing the Rothy's Garnet Sneaker. I love the deep red color. It works with jeans, skirts, dresses.

DOWNTOWN MIAMI

The basics: well, Downtown is our home. We have lived in the Greater Downtown Area since 2012. Downtown Miami is one of the oldest settled area of Miami, with early pioneer settlement dating to early 19th century.   Nowadays, it has become the fastest-growing area in Miami with the greatest concentration of high-rises in the region.

Every day there is a new restaurant in the area; walking around to shoot these pictures, we noticed there are many places we can't wait to try. 


I'm going to give you a few "where to eat" recommendations since this is our neighborhood, we definitely like eating around here.

FOR A PALEO INSPIRED PLATE: Jar and Fork 
FOR JUICES + PLANT BASED MEALS: Manna Life (the superfood arepas are DELICIOUS)
FOR THE BEST CEVICHE EVER: Ceviche 105. I'm a big Ceviche105 fan, the price point for the big portion is great + it's truly delicious. Try the Lomo Saltado
YUMMIEST PAD THAI:  Hibachi Grill and Noodle Bar.


PICTURE-WORTHY SPOTS
- If you want a city vibe, I recommend the corner of NE 1st Street with NE 1st Avenue.
- If you are looking to shoot at a rooftop, head to the parking garage on SE 1st street and SE 2nd Ave.

For a different type of plan: try an escape room. We did all the rooms at Fox in a Box in Downtown and we wish they had more!




Even though, the Downtown is pretty small compared to Downtowns around the U.S. Take the Metrorail to move around Downtown + Brickell.


At the parking garage on SE 1st street and SE 2nd Ave.





MIRACLE MILE - CORAL GABLES

The basics: Coral Gables was one of the first planned communities of the area. It was developed during the Florida Land Bloom of the 1920s and it has a characteristic architecture of Mediterranean Revival. In Coral Gables, I love the Miracle Mile area: a boulevard filled with restaurants, shops, boutiques, and art galleries.

In 2016, Miracle Mile began a design update with wider sidewalks and curb-less street edge..for a friendlier experience.

I feel like I've been giving a lot of food options...but hey, a girl's gotta eat.

FOR BREAKFAST & BRUNCH: Threefold Caf茅.
If a place says "all day breakfast", I'm down!  Some of my favorites at Threefold are: sautee Mushrooms, Morning Monkey (an out of this world banana bread), and the pope benedict eggs.

FOR JUICES + ORGANIC TREATS: Green Life Organic Bistro.
As you can see, I have a thing for green juices. Oh and their carrot cake is delicious!


FOR FUN
- Miracle Mile is FILLED with bridal stores. Even if you are single or already married, it's always fun to pretend you are engaged and try on a few dresses! 
- Actor's playhouse at the Miracle Theater: if you want to take a break from the movies, heading to the Miracle Theater for a play or a musical is a good idea!
- For a fun photo opportunity like the one at the magazine stand: check out Books and Books.

p.s: If you are heading to Coral Gables for famous umbrellas, you are not going to find them! They were a limited time exhibit. However, there's more to see! So don't miss it!






Leopard is SO on trend right now but a pair of leopard flats never go out of style.   Plus they are a neutral that work with any print (like the camo print I'm wearing here!). Check them out at Rothy's by click here.

Last-Minute Visit to NYC- where we stayed

11/13/2018


It's not secret that I love NYC. The last time I visited the city was in November 2016 (so two years ago!) and I couldn't wait to be back! I have so many photos, moments, and tips to share about this trip! So I'm going to start with "where to stay"


We were supposed to go last year for New York Fashion Week, and then Hurricane Irma happened. Many of you remembered I was running around Florida with Gabe, Gaby, and Alex. We ended up in Miramar Beach and then New Orleans.

That day the airport looked out of an apocalyptic movie, and I was freaking out when our flight was cancelled. Not only because that meant we were stuck in Miami with a Hurricane Category 5 coming our way, I was also missing my favorite city. Many friends in the same situation started texting me that they couldn't cancel their hotels (hence lost the money). Thankfully,  had booked my hotel via Hotel Tonight a we got reimbursed in credits.

Later on I found out I was pregnant ( I was already pregnant running away from the Hurricane and I just didn't know it yet馃ぃ). Obviously I didn't travel for a while and now that we are so excited to explore the world with Nico, I said "let's just go to NY before it gets too cold and use the credits we have".

But the world works in mysterious ways and we ended up teaming up with Hotel Tonight for this stay. The app, which I've used for YEARS, has the best last-minute deals in amazing hotels. We ended up booking a super comfortable room at the Freehand, and it really was the perfect place to call home for a week in NY! If you feel like checking out the app, use the code GSANCHEZ175 for $25 off your next booking!




_____________________________________


Creo que no es ning煤n secreto que AMO Nueva York. La 煤ltima vez que visit茅 la Gran Manzana fue a finales de Noviembre del 2016 por nuestro aniversario #2.  As铆 que ten铆a casi dos a帽os sin ir, y estaba loca por volver. Tengo much铆simas fotos, momentos, y recomendaciones que darles. As铆 que voy a empezar con "¿d贸nde quedarse?"


Empecemos con un cuento muy random. El a帽o pasado se supone que iba la Semana de la Moda; pero por el hurac谩n Irma, cancelaron nuestro vuelo (¡¡tal vez se acuerdan como estuvimos corriendo huy茅ndole al peligro!!) 

Para ese viaje, hab铆a hecho mi reservaci贸n con Hotel Tonight- y aunque muchas amigas en la misma situaci贸n perdieron su dinero, me lo devolvieron en cr茅dito para usar a futuro. Luego me entero que estoy embarazada (digo me entero porque ya para el corre corre del hurac谩n estaba embarazada y no lo sab铆a馃ぃ) y obviamente no viajamos por un buen tiempo.

Pero ahora que queremos explorar el mundo con nuestro peque帽铆n, dije "Vamos YA a Nueva York antes de que se ponga muy fr铆o, y usamos el cr茅dito que tenemos para el hotel". Pero el mundo nos sorprende, y sali贸 la oportunidad de trabajar con Hotel Tonight y contarles un poquito m谩s (que como pueden ver es una aplicaci贸n que llevo a帽os usando porque se encuentran descuentos incre铆bles en hoteles espectaculares para viajes 煤ltimo minuto). Nos quedamos en el Freehand, ¡y nos encant贸! Si quieren bajar la app, usen el c贸digo GSANCHEZ175 y les dan $25 para usar en la pr贸xima reservaci贸n.

Where to stay in NYC can be a super duper personal choice. All areas have their appeal. I regularly like to stay close to Central Park because I'm absolutely in love with that HUGE park. 

However, this time my friends and I decided to stay at the recently opened Freehand Hotel in the Flatiron neighborhood. I didn't doubt it for a second because I love the Miami location- and let me tell you, it didn't disappoint us AT ALL. 

The hotel has a boho vibe very typical of the Freehand Hotels- every corner was picture worthy. The rooms were comfortable (even with a baby stroller and all the things that come with a baby! Don't worry that article where I answer all your questions about traveling with a baby is coming soon). We also loved the rooftop at the Broken Shaker, the views were breathtaking!

Decidir donde quedarte en NYC es una opci贸n muy personal porque cada area tiene su encanto. A mi generalmente me gusta quedarme cerca de Central Park porque AMO ese parque con todo mi coraz贸n.

Esta vez fue una decisi贸n en grupo, nos quedamos en el Freehand. Ten铆amos como referencia el de Miami y realmente sobrepas贸 nuestras expectativas. Tiene esa onda bohemia muy t铆pica de la cadena de hoteles Freehand y cada esquina es perfecta para una foto. Las habitaciones me parecieron muy c贸modas (para ser Nueva York , que todo es extra peque帽o). Nos quedamos en una habitaci贸n King y fue la decisi贸n perfecta porque entre tanto coche y cosas de beb茅, necesit谩bamos un poquito m谩s de espacio. No se preocupen, pronto les cuento m谩s sobre viajar co un beb茅 (que me han preguntado much铆simo).

El Freehand NYC tambi茅n tiene una terraza espectacular con un bar que tienen que visitar as铆 se queden en otro hotel.

BEAUTY: My Lip Wardrobe

10/08/2018

Sponsored by Lanc么me and ShopStyle All opinions are my own.




Over the years, I’ve learned what makeup look I like the most on me (aka. neutral eyeshadows, a winged eyeliner, and different lippies). I have it down and I’m sure that if you time me, I can do my makeup under 5 minutes.  

Since I like to keep my eyes makeup on the neutral side, I basically just switch up the color of my lips. I love playing with different colors since it quickly transforms any makeup look and I can easilymatch the color to my outfit. More than lipsticks, I see them as part of my wardrobe, my LIP WARDROBE.

 I was so excited to play with some of the fun formats from Lancme L’Absolu Rouge and I want to share some of my favorites with you today. I love how can a simple color on your lips can inspire you and empower you! It’s more than feeling beautiful, it’s about living your life beautifully.






Lanc么me L’Absolu Rouge comes in 44 shades, with multiple formats and finishes (like Classic Creams, Sheers, Gloss, Lacquer, and the new Drama Matte). I also got a few shades from a limited edition collaboration with Camila Coelho that includes 10-shades in the same formula as the L’absolu Rouge Classic…and OMG, the Lanc么me x Camila actual lipstick is shaped as lips- I think it’s the cutest lipstick bullet that I have ever seen. I instantly opened them and put them on my vanity!! But I could’t wait to try them!


My lip wardrobe is full of reds, it is definitely my go-to color. But the Tropical Pink 485 shade from the Camila Coelho collection stole my heart. This formula delivers high color without drying my lips! It’s such a perfect color for Miami but I think it looks gorgeous with fall colors. I paired this Tropical Pink with a fall floral dress; the shade perfectly complement the yellow in the dress!





I’m also super picky when it comes to neutrals. I don’t know why I find it so hard to find colors that work with any outfit. I find some too pink, too brown, or too bland. As soon as I saw the tube for the L’Absolu Rouge 124 Rose Petale (Cream), I knew I might have found a new favorite neutral…and I was right! This one is going in my bag because it really goes well with my skin tone and with any look!






I can’t wait to continue building my lip wardrobe! What shades are a total must in yours?
