White Bear Photoshoot

A few days ago my company, White Bear, did a photoshoot. We shot on the bay here in Miami and boy, was that sunset a gorgeous backdrop! Andy Weiss was the photographer and my sister, funny enough, was our model. They both did an amazing job. Check out some pictures of the shoot! Everything is available at my shop on Etsy.

What time is it?

So when I moved to South Florida three years ago from New York City, I vowed to never wear a watch again. I threw all of my watches in my jewelry boxes and closed the lid. "I'm a beach bum now, I don't need to know what time it is," I would tell myself. And really, in this day and age, who doesn't have a cell phone already in their hand where they can just as easily check the time? Too convenient.

But I've recently come across some stunning watches that I'm not sure I can live without. I might just have to renounce my evil ways of watch abandonment and dress up my left wrist a bit. Check out some of my latest favorite watch finds!

LOVE the leopard! This is perfect for day into night.

ASOS Aztec Bright Watch
I am so happy tribal prints are IN right now. The use of colors and patterns is just amazing!

Stuhrling Original Women's Verona Del Mar Swiss Quartz Watch
Tiffany blue and anchors? Hello endless summer! This is pure paradise.

La Mer's Coral Gold Tokyo Crystal Chain Wrap
Coral and gold is such a great color combo, especially with all the extra hardware. This bracelet watch combo is too stunning for words.

...and this just cracks me up :)

Neon and Lace and NYC

So I've been a bit busy this month...hence the lack of posts! I was in NYC for a week visiting my family. 30 of us were at my parents place to celebrate my grandfathers 90th birthday! It really was an amazing event, there is nothing like getting the whole gang together. My family is so loud and crazy, there is never a dull moment.

I was lucky enough to do some shopping while in NY. I love Miami, but the shopping is sometimes limited. New York has everything a girl could dream for! I'll post up some fashion finds later on. So I am currently sitting at home while Tropical Storm Isaac pounds outside. It's a lot of heavy rain, but thats about it. Although, the tornado warnings do NOT make me happy.

There is nothing like a rainy Sunday, am I right? Just sitting around with the boys, watching cheesy TV and playing with puppy. John and I even sat out in our Florida room and played some Yahtzee!

So a few days ago I was cruising Lincoln Road here in South Beach and I decided to see what Aldo currently has to offer. I was pleasantly surprised to find some neon lace shoes and matching bags! Talk about heaven! Neon is so much fun right now, and if you know anything about my jewelry line, White Bear, you know I am a LACE fanatic! It's still late enough in the summer to get these fun pops of neon in, so I certainly recommend a trip to Aldo for all!

Sunburns and Smiles

A day at the beach is the perfect way to spend a weekend. Especially when it's with your loving boyfriend and wonderful friends. I live on South Beach in Miami. While the water is a gorgeous shade of turquoise, the sand can sometimes be a bit rough and covered with lots of seaweed. But aside from the noisy tourists and debris, the beaches of Miami truly are amazing. We love the snorkeling and the sunsets are always top-notch. Check out some of my pictures from our latest beach adventure. I'm seriously so lucky to live just a few short blocks from the ocean!
