The Classic Summer Sandal: Bel Air To Badlands

bel air blogger

Thank you Zappos and Teva for sponsoring this post.

I love living a spontaneous life due to a busy schedule and last minute projects. And with an on-the-go lifestyle, life is a lot easier when I have solid staple pieces in my closet, easy to pack and go… I always need to be prepared for any and every adventure life offers me. Carpe diem. 

I also like to have my go-to and trusted websites to order from for last minute items. Amazon is great for ordering things like film, drones and cameras, however, Zappos is the best for clothing and shoes. (Funny that Zappos is actually owned by Amazon! Makes total sense.)

I remember hearing about Zappos from my dad about 14 years ago on a drive to softball practice when I was about 11. My dad likes to listen to interviews and educational discussions on the radio – the equivalent to our present day podcasts and Youtube – and I specifically remember an interview with the Zappos founder. I asked my dad what Zappos was because the catchy, unfamiliar name caught my attention and he explained to me that they were a new tech company that stood out due to their revolutionary customer service, unparalleled return/shipping policies and genuine company ethos. Later that week, my dad saved a newspaper article for me to read. It was an article on Zappos revolutionizing the industry with excellent customer service. I remember reading it and then later that month seeing a Zappos box show up at our house. If that isn’t great marketing fam, I don’t know what is. 

Since then, I’ve ordered countless birthday and Christmas gifts, shoes, designer items, and TEVA sandals from Zappos because it makes everything seamless and accessible. Not only do they promise fast, free shipping, but they also have a 365-day return policy so you can really try different items without stressing whether or not they’ll fit right. Shop here.

*Also a major fact I just recently learned is that TEVA is pronounced Tev-ah, not Tee-vah. This blew my mind.*

TEVA sandals are another similarity that I share with my dad. I remember going on lake trips when I was a lil nugget and he always had his black TEVA’s on which always left funny tan lines on his feet. I even remember him wearing them with socks multiple times and my sisters and I had to explain to him that that was social suicide. He wore them anyways and now I realize that my dad is way cooler than me and was actually way ahead of street style trends and fashion bloggers. 

Fast forward to today and now here I am traveling around in my modern TEVA sandals – a footwear icon. The new styles are perfect for all my Summer adventures from poolside in Bel Air to hiking in Palm Springs. TEVA sandals are versatile, comfortable, durable, reliable, AND waterproof. TEVA’s are the perfect Summer sandals.  The velcro straps make them easy to take on and off and will always remind me of my childhood – full of adventure. And that adventurous and curious spirit is something I have carried with me throughout my life and I don’t plan on changing that anytime soon.

A Sneak Peek Into The Unreleased #CASHCARD By Square Cash

cashcard

SQUARE CASH CASH CARDCASH CARD BY SQUARE CASH

 

#CASHCARD is the newest and most revolutionary card, and this is why…

 

1.  It’s the newest and most rare card out there. Very few have been able to get their hands on this card making it the most elusive and exclusive. 

2. You can customize your card by writing your signature on the bottom right corner through the app. I went ahead and wrote “Treat Yo $elf” on mine rather than my signature because I like the daily reminder:)

 

CASH CARD SQUARE CASH

 

3. Aesthetically speaking, the card is black with your signature in silver – making it the sleekest card out there besides a black Titanium Amex. But those things are too heavy anyways. 

4. It is extremely convenient and actually instant, unlike other payment transfer apps such as PayPal or Venmo. If someone sends you money through the Square Cash App, you see the money in your bank account instantly. No fees. No BS. No accepting payments. Instant transfers. 

5. It isn’t a debit card, but rather a prepaid card that is linked to your Square Cash account and can be used anywhere that accepts Visa. The way it works is that rather than pulling from your bank account, the card pulls from whatever balance you keep in the app. And the app is connected to your bank account so you can transfer in money as well. 

So say a friend transferred you money via Square Cash. You receive the full amount instantly and can spend it by using your physical #CashCard. It’s 2017 and nobody should have to wait 1-3 days for a transfer.

 

SQUARE CASH CASH CARD

 

I personally had a really bad experience with Venmo two years ago at Coachella where my friend was selling an extra VIP ticket. She sold the ticket to a random and they paid me via Venmo for it because she wasn’t from the US and didn’t have an account or something. Idk. Long story. But because Venmo takes 1-3 days for transfers, the transfer ended up being a fraud which we found out a day later so this guy got a VIP ticket for free and then probably resold it. And of course Venmo said it wasn’t their problem… Although it wasn’t even my money, that was a major buzzkill and I swore to never use that app again.

Then I discovered Square Cash and I’ve never had a problem because there could never be a problem. The instant bank to bank transfer is what makes it the most legit and efficient.

In case you haven’t downloaded the app yet, you can do so here. 

And here are some photos of me planning my trip next month to the Caribbean, with my “Treat Yo $elf” card close by. What are you going to write on your #CASHCARD? Comment below:)

The Perfect Staycation: Miami Edition

a.m. club silk flamingo top

MIAMI STAYCATION

at the Shelborne South Beach Hotel.

I think no matter where you live, one can always use a staycation to reset. Whether you’d like a creative, physical, or mind reset – staycations are key. Living in Miami is truly like living in paradise – it feels like a permanent vacation. However, I find that sometimes I can get creative block or crave some latin culture and music in my life to spice things up. 

After spending a month at the condo in Brickell, Joey and I decided to have our own little staycation before heading to our family events, so we checked into the Shelborne South Beach Hotel. It was the perfect couple days full of adventures, tropical vibes, and obviously room service.  

Read on below for photos and tips on spending the perfect staycation in Miami. Happy travels:)

Miami Montage is a video Joey and I made for A.M. Club with the help of Marissa Marietta. Comment below and let me know what you think.

For more you can go to our website – AMCLUB.CO

Enjoy the amazing cuisine, shop, and always order room service.

Miami is hands down the best in the US when it comes to hospitality, so definitely explore all the beautiful restaurants, hotels, and cafes that you haven’t seen before. And when it’s early in the morning and you just feel like reading on the balcony, pick up the phone and order room service. For shopping – KITH is always fresh and has everything you need from clothes and accessories to chic books and candles. I also love The Webster for their creative curation and cozy decor.

Jump in the ocean.

There is no beach better than South Beach in the US. Perfect temperature, perfectly clear, just perfect.

Enjoy the view and take photos.

Miami gets the best sunsets AND sunrises. The sunset on South Beach is truly magical. Pink and blue hues fill the sky while you enjoy the beach to yourself as the faint live tropical jazz plays off in the distance.

What To Pack For A Weekend In Miami

a.m. club miami beach

Sponsored by Zappos

Traveling often and living a spontaneous life have taught me one major key to life – only book one way flights and only pack the necessities. 

Two weeks ago Joey and I booked one way flights to Miami thinking we were only going to spend a weekend here, yet here we are – still at the condo – more creatively inspired and recharged than ever, not wanting to leave. Seriously.

Miami is a tropical paradise. 

timberland zappos

Packing for Miami is by far my favorite. Although there is so much to do and so much to see, the weather is always the same so you don’t need to pack multiple outfits for each day. Here are the basics I always pack below.

Swimsuits – Always pack a one-piece and bikini. The versatility of a one-piece is incomparable. Throw on some shorts or tie a large silk scarf as a skirt and voila – you have the perfect Miami outfit. 

Accessories – Some cute earrings, sunglasses, beach bags, hats and silk scarves. The humidity can be a bit much for my Italian hair, so tying it back with a scarf is always my go to look. Accessories are a great way to add some color to your outfits.

Shirts, shorts, skirts – all lightweight basics to stay cool in the Miami heat. 

Shoes – I always pack a good pair of sandals and sneakers. I am in love with these new versatile, comfortable, slick, Timberland leather sneakers from Zappos! Zappos is one of my favorite online places to shop because the vast selection, world class customer service and 365 day return policy – it is incomparable. These sneakers are perfect for strolling the boardwalk, exploring Wynwood, walks around Brickell, trips to the Perez Museum, and everything in between. 

You can shop these Timberland sneakers from Zappos here. 

Here are some photos from our adventures around Miami the past couple weeks. Comment your favorite places to explore in Miami below!
