A little bit about me. I was on the path to becoming a doctor at Penn, when I realized that medicine was actually not my calling. You can imagine my parents’ surprise when I one day declared that I was no longer interested in blood and was suddenly at odds with catching dysentery from strangers. Instead, I wanted to be creative, I wanted to paint and write. They probably would have had a better reaction had I told them that I was 16 and pregnant. But, since they couldn’t disown me at this point, they’d invested too much already, I was given the green light to study Literature and Fine Arts.
So here I am today, doing what I love. I get to put pen to paper, manicured nails to keys and tell the world about the one thing that inspires me most, beauty. In the words of Anaïs Nin, “we write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.” I have the gift or the curse, depending on the way you want to look at it, for seeing beauty in everything. And when I am not writing about it, I am creating it, whether it be through styling, painting or cooking. Fashion, food and travel are the ways that I experience the world. And being an epicurean of all things, I find it most meaningful to be able to share my finds with others. Be it a new restaurant, an undiscovered fashion designer or a unique art exhibit, I’m on it.
What fashion whipped means to me is being able to relinquish power to all things beautiful without losing sight of what’s important. As a Miami transplant I have grown to love and appreciate this city. Its ability to be intimate and worldly intrigues me but it is the beauty of this seaside metropolis that I want to relay in my words. A travel destination to many, Miami is my home now and when you visit my website, I want you to feel at home, too.
