A Miami girls Fall outfit guide
When it’s finally getting a bit chilly so you can wear a coat but the sun is still blazing so you can also pull off a crop top underneath. Whatever your needs, PRETTYLITTLETHING has you covered.
This year I experienced Burning Man for the first time. Words and photos couldn’t even begin to explain this adventure, but for a blog post’s sake I will try.
Burning Man is NOT a festival. Burning man is a community, a temporary city that only exists once a year. A cultural movement based on 10 practical principles.
Sure, you might run into what looks like a festival while inside the community of Burning Man, but they don’t actually book acts or performances. What happens in Burning Man is up to the attendees. You can be whoever you want, dress however you want, you are an active citizen of Burning Man during this week. A community that values you for WHO YOU ARE, not what you have. Money doesn’t exist, neither do egos or judgement. Everyone is expected to be involved and volunteer, collaborate, and be creative. One of my favorite fundamental values is cleaning up after yourself, leaving with what you brought in and taking all your trash. No one is hired to clean up afterwards. It was so amazing to me that 70,000 humans live here for a week and when they leave, there is NO TRACE. In Burning Man, they believe in leaving a place in better condition than the one you found it in. Beautiful.
I spent 4 days in Burning Man and probably only saw 15% of it. There are so many things happening all at once. Of course, there are fascinating parties all around, but there is also SO MUCH MORE. Aside from the parties, Burning Man is about Love, Relationships, and Reflection. There is a temple in the middle of the playa, one of the only places to experience true tranquility and calmness. The temple is a symbol of love and remembrance. I noticed it was also filled with so much sadness, but a truly beautiful kind of sadness. So many people come here to honor loved ones they have lost, and leave a little piece of that person, or pet, to show their devotion. The first time I passed by I was intimidated to go in. Within my first step towards the entrance chills ran through my body and I saw a photo of a man taped on one of the walls, I knew someone lost that person. I immediate got teared up and turned away. On my last day at Burning Man I had the strength to walk inside and fill myself with the energy. It was the most beautiful yet overwhelmingly sad places I had walked into. Everyone was mourning something, but they were mourning together. You realize that you are not the only person going through difficult times, everyone shares their sadness and offers their love to everyone around them. Hugging, holding hands in a circle and meditating, and crying on strangers shoulders… it was an incredible sight.
Moving on from the emotional aspect… you can find workshops, meditation groups, virtual reality domes, bike obstacle courses (I know because drunk Cindy went on it thinking she’s a pro and is still suffering from a sprained ankle), Sunrise parties, human car washes, ART ART ART ART ART ART and more astonishing ART, insane art cars that roam around with dozens of people on them, and so much Love!
Visually, I thought day time at Burning Man looked like a Mad Max dessert type of vibe. Suddenly, at night, I felt like it turned into a video game. Darkness takes over with the exception of neon lights that fill up the space in the sky and art cars lit up to look like actual dragons, sharks, pac-man, etc, moving around seamlessly in the darkness.
I think everyone should experience Burning Man at least once in their lifetime. If you’re still not convinced, check out my photos below:
I’ve teamed up again with PRETTYLITTLETHING to create this photo story with some festival inspo for Burning Man! The last festival inspo look book I did with them was for Coachella and their stuff was amazing! Their festival range always has so many unique items for any type of festival. For this inspo I chose three very different style Burning Man outfits that can be found on their site 🙂
“In dust we trust”
“Burning Man is where my pants aren’t”
Nothing like that one outfit that gives you major Queen feels. Sleek, s e x y, and the center of attention. This look from Meshki is able to provide all of the above.
I shared some photos on my social media but I wanted to upload the full gallery here. All my outfit info is posted at the bottom 🙂
Festival season is here and I couldn’t be more excited! So happy to team up with one of my favorite stores PrettyLittleThing to bring you this photo story filled with outfit inspo! You can find all these clothes on their website now 🙂
Notorious Pink Rosé, the most delicious pear ravioli, Instyl shop outfits galore, and a table full of babes.
My amazing friends at Instyl Shop had a brunch to remember, although thanks to my love of rosé my memory is a bit blurry. One thing I do know is I had an incredible time! You can’t possibly go wrong with a big group of gorgeous girls (inside & out), great location, booze, and lots of fashion & goodies.
Special thanks to The Deck at Island Gardens & Notorious Pink for making the brunch spectacular!
Here is a little recap:
PS: Every girl is wearing Instyl Shop 🙂

Rio De Janeiro was nothing short of amazing! It was as picturesque as I’ve seen in so many pictures growing up. I stayed in Ipanema Beach at the Fasano hotel, which I HIGHLY recommend. Most celebrities who visit Rio stay in this hotel which is how I knew about it from stalking countless celebrity IG pages, the views from the pool are unreal!
While I was here I had a couple photoshoots on Ipanema beach and even made time to visit the Jesus Statue. Hope you enjoy my photos!

It is my first day in Istanbul and I absolutely love it! Istanbul is such a culturally rich city with so many historical and cultural influences. Today I drove on a bridge that connects Asia and Europe. It was so interesting to learn that Istanbul is actually half in Europe and half in Asia. The people here are incredibly nice and accommodating. I am here for three days to appear on a Tv program so I will make a post about my entire trip soon!
Here I am wearing this amazing playsuit and cross body bag by Mura Boutique.
Pink is currently hotter than this summer weather right now and I am loving it!

Absolutely love this one from Pretty Little Thing
I will be updating my travel section a lot within the week so stay tuned!
Visiting Egypt was a true adventure! My boyfriend and I have been wanting to see the Pyramids for a pretty long time and we somehow spontaneously decided to meet up there. I was shooting in Spain for a new swimwear campaign and was to fly back to Miami on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. I wanted to go somewhere for the long weekend and that’s when I decided that there was no point in coming back home and that he should just meet me in Europe 🙂
I did a lot of research prior to the trip as to what type of clothes I should pack. Basically, women shouldn’t wear any tight clothes or show their legs or shoulders. While I was out in the street I would wear scarfs over my hair and I never wore anything tight or showed my legs (you don’t HAVE to do this, I saw women in shorts. However, I just rather respect their culture and not get nasty comments). In many photos I’m posing with my legs out of my skirt or pants slit but I would never while out in the public streets, just in the hotel restaurants and areas that were touristy. For my pyramid photos, I asked my tour guide (who was a muslim) and he told me it was okay to take my tunic off and wear it as a bandana type for my photos. Pyramids is a mostly touristy area so I didn’t get many comments, just many people wanting to take photos.
On our last day, we went to a resort by the Red Sea because we really wanted to bathe in the waters that Moses supposedly parted. I thought there would be many American/European tourist but they were all from other Middle Eastern countries which means the women were bathing covered up from head to toe. I felt SO weird!! I only had small bikinis from my Spain trip where people bathe topless so it’s a COMPLETELY different world. I stuck through it and just never took off the sarong that was covering my tiny brazilian cut bottoms.
I will make a list of the hotels and nice places to see that I went to, as well as the AMAZING tour guides that we found. They were so helpful and open to speaking about their culture. Our tour guide to the Pyramids warned us about everything we should encounter there from the more corrupted Egyptians and he kept us safe the entire time. He also took all the photos below of me from the pyramids and even made us a beautiful video, all his idea! HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.
Mena House – This is were we stayed the first 2 nights. It is located in Giza where the Pyramids are situated. You can see from the photos below, it is the closest hotel to the Pyramids and you can see them from your balcony! I wanted to stay here first because I figured would be the best Egyptian welcoming to walk into my room and see the Pyramids outside. Downfall: No Wifi. However, the property was absolutely incredible.
Four Seasons Cairo: We stayed here the next two nights. It is located in downtown Cairo and close to everything. This hotel felt way more like home. They had wifi, nice pool area with outside restaurants, and even provided you with outlet adaptors. We had a huge balcony with an amazing view of the Nile River, the longest river in the world.
Mövenpick – Resort in Ain Sukhna by the Red Sea, we didn’t stay here but we got a day pass to use the beach and pool for only about $20 dollars. It was a 2 hour drive from Cairo but was totally worth it!
Sequioa – A Mediterranean restaurant by the water with a really nice vibe. Upscale but not really pricey with the US dollar conversion. They also give you a shisha (hookah) to smoke which is very common in Egypt.
8 Restaurant at Four Seasons – One of the most popular Chinese restaurants in Cairo, also upscale and nice.

I just got back from a mini getaway on a Cruise ship. I was aboard the Norwegian Pearl for 3 days and stopped at two Bahamas Islands. The weather in Miami has been acting up lately so it was nice to finally get some sun and sport some bikinis.
These beach photos were taken in Cabbage Beach in Nassau. The water is absolute perfection! I highly recommend this beach which is situated on Paradise Island area of Nassau. Most people go straight to Atlantis but we stopped by the One&Only resort and it was so dreamy and such a nice stroll.

I recently got a new camera and me and my boyfriend haven’t gotten tired of playing with it since. I love being able to take photos with someone I can be so comfortably sexy with and I think he brings it out in me. Definitely beats shooting with random photographers! The playfulness of being able to roll out of bed and take pictures without thinking its a job or spending hours in full hair and makeup makes me remember why I love modeling so much and how much fun it is for me.
