Miami Fashion Week: Eden Roc Blogger Brunch

Tous and the Eden Roc hosted a blogger brunch on Saturday for Miami Fashion Week.  Top international blogger 'ambassadors' were flown in to represent their respective countries for the event.  I hung out with the usual suspects but also made some new friends.

The event was on the rooftop terrace of the Elle Spa at the Eden Roc.  If you've never been to the hotel, the Eden Roc is a South Beach fixture, that was renovated back in 2008 after it had fallen in disrepair, and was a bit outdated.  The $200 million plus renovation brought with it a slew of luxury, modern amenities, and a streamlined look; the spa, being one of them.  The ocean view from the rooftop served as the perfect backdrop for pictures.

Hope you enjoy the pictures that I snapped.  Full outfit post later this week.

Thanks to the Eden Roc, The Elle Spa and Tous for a chic and fun afternoon.

Dr. Brandt Dermatology, Miami: My Experience

I love the doors that blogging has opened up for me.  Doing this has led me to meet amazing, entrepreneurial women, who have become real friends.  I have the chance to attend really fun events and test drive new skincare and beauty products.   Some the of coolest experiences have come from BirchBox because they really know how to throw a little party.

I was excited to be invited to attend a one on one consult with famed dermatologist Dr. Fredric Brandt.  Last Thursday evening, we visited his Miami office, across from The Village at Merrick Park (Nordstrom)

Myself, as well as a few other bloggers, had the chance to tour Dr. Brandt's Miami office.  The Miami office is one of the cornerstones of his dermatology practice.  He has been heavily involved in dermatology since the 1980's and has pioneered the cosmetology field by embracing skin sculpting, fillers, cell regeneration, cellular resurfacing and other techniques that produce aesthetic results without being surgical in nature.
This particular office  has three other resident doctors who are on staff and who are devoted members of an on-site research lab.
No other Dermatology office in the country boasts the amount of medical equipment this one has.  The office is deceptively large and because of the doctor's eye  for art, each room is uniquely decorated, featuring some sort of wall hanging or sculpture.

The impressive part about this for me was the diversity of laser equipment that this office has to offer.  I'm super fair skinned, and I can't get sun because I get exposed red blood vessels and brown spots that do not fade. It's genetic.  You can't treat this topically, so I have tried lasers to remove some of these red marks - IPL and V-Beam lasers to be exact.  These are effective but expensive.  I was happy to find that this office offers both.  I'm super excited to be getting a V-Beam treatment soon, where I'll follow up with a full review of the results.  

I hope you enjoy my pictures from the event xx
