CHI-CITY

August 31, 2016

Making it a point to explore the US a little bit more, this past weekend I headed to the windy city with some friends. It being my first time in the city, all that was recommended for me to do was eat, drink and roam the “super clean” city. So that’s exactly what we did. We had just over 48 hours to see and eat and drink what we could cram into our days. Meeting up with Miami friends that reside there now, I couldn’t have asked for more of a wholesome weekend.

Busy is Good

July 26, 2016

It’s been a couple months since I’ve had the chance to update my work. What have I been up to, you ask? To be honest, I’ve found myself at my most creative peak and so immersed into my work that I haven’t had a chance to stop and process it all. Running around Miami creating content for Prism Music Group, meeting great people and tasting new food along the way has been an amazing experience. When you do what you love, it just works.

ICE CREAM IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA

March 28, 2016

My culinary creative bestie, that I previously spoke about made it down to Miami this past weekend to launch her amazing ice cream sandwiches. It was a concept always in the works and thanks to the push of a couple of her besties, we made this thing happen.

Food prep, concept ideas, Instagram posts, it happened. Katie, aka KatieFresca, debuted her homemade cookie ice cream sandwiches at The Wynwood Yard at a day drinking event curated by Prism Music Group and Della of DellaBowls. Katie had three flavors to offer: key lime pie, guava coco, and the classic chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream. They-were-a-hit! 🙂

Where did Spring go? Summer is here!

Saturday Shake Up

February 29, 2016

If you were in Miami this past weekend, you probably heard the buzz around town on #SOBEWFF ::Clears throat:: South Beach Wine and Food Festival. Another reason, to eat and drink and eat and drink and party. Hello, party in the city where the heat is on.

My very good friend was in town this weekend for the yearly event. She is what I like to call, a Culinary Creative. Think of this: she takes amazing pictures of some of the best food in top cities like NYC and Miami, is an amazing chef (she’s starting to do pop-up dinners in different cities) and she leads the social media department for a restaurant PR and media agency in NYC. Let me just call her, the best foodie friend you could have.

Thanks to her, we spent our Saturday over at The Broken Shaker indulging on an amazing brunch for my roommates birthday and tasting some Odd Fellows NYC boozy ice cream. Yes, “boozy ice cream”. My favorite? Rose Sorbet. Odd Fellows is an ice cream company based out of Brooklyn New York and because of Sobe Wine and Food Festival, they held a pop up all weekend at the shaker.

More of a reason why I love this city. Good Food, Good Company and an NYC pop up? I’m in!

CHAMPAGNE SHOWERS

February 22, 2016

What happens when Veuve Cliqout decides to throw a Carnaval themed party in the heart of Downtown Miami? Your Saturday afternoon turns into an impromptu dance party.

As I grabbed two of my friends, Seba and Carol, and headed to Museum Park we didn’t know what to expect. (Anything with champagne is a good time)  Little did we know we’d be experiencing one of the best daytime parties so far this year.

Always on the Go…

January 13, 2016

the title of this post says it all. I’ve turned in my designer handbag for the backpack I used in New York, I carry multiple cell phone chargers in there, and you can best catch me when I’m home and about to call it a day. 

someone once told me “busy is good”.

The best is yet to come….

2016 is here

January 5, 2016

Five days after the New Year and I’m still talking about how amazing my NYE was. Smiles and laughter filled the air. Everyone looked crisp in black and white. Excitement was buzzing for 2016 to finally arrive. Champagne was literally, flowing. There was a live band. There was a DJ. You name it. Is this real life?

 I called a good friend to attend the party and take some pics since I knew we’d all be too busy having, what I didn’t know would be, the time of our lives.

Cheers to 2016! The best is yet to come!

the holidays

December 24, 2015

Noche Buena has arrived, (Noche Buena is ‘Christmas Eve’ in spanish) and I found myself starting my day early. My dearest food photographer bestie has arrived from New York which means, I’m restaurant hopping with her all through break. Bring on the calories! (and the good food)  The gift giving has begun and I’m going on hiatus for the next two days. Hiatus, as in…I’ll be drowning myself in coquito tonight and chilling at my mama’s house all tomorrow. Did someone say, leftovers?
