Fast Cars & Fierce Shoes

May 25th, 2016

Fast cars and fierce shoes go together like email spam and my mama opening it! So for my Audi Q7 collab with THE COLLECTION and World Red Eye, I mixed the sporty SUV with sexy fringe heels. You can read the entire interview here and peep some of the pics below which were snapped at Bal Harbour Shops and the sizzling streets of the 305.

We need to talk about working out because I’ve become one of those annoying people that utters stupid things to their friends like, “Sugar and gluten are the devil” or “Squat it likes it’s hot” or “Won’t quit till I’m fit” and “Work out like Channing Tatum is watching.” Talk about irritating! At least I haven’t taken up Cross Fit or a vegan lifestyle SO THERE.

Besides, everyone needs a vice and working out is a healthier obsession over a grody meth addiction any day of the week.

Anyhoo, with summer, around the corner (AKA Bahama Mama Bikini Season), I’ve been bumping up my workout game with a personal trainer. I found him through two close friends as we needed someone to come to our home because my husband doesn’t “do” the gym (Read: He’s a brat).

The 411 on our new certified personal trainer? His name is Deano Statler and he personally comes to our home here in South Florida 3 mornings a week for a half hour where he whips the husband and I into shape in the form of squats, lunges, burpees and other mean things. I actually love the fact my husband joins me because it feels like couples therapy because all we do is whine, bitch, moan, complain and sweat. Emphasis on the “complain” part. But I feel like the throwback booty music makes up for all of it. 

My focus? To lean out my body (that’s 99% the food I eat) and get some sexy muscle definition. My legs are getting where I want them to be as indicative in these pictures (whoop whoop!). And if I score a plump, non-store-bought Kardashian butt in all my efforts with Deano, that would be just fab, too.

So if you’re into masochism, a tighter ass, and that sorta thing, his digits are (772) 360-8064.

Nikki Novo & Maria Tettamanti

Cyber children, listen up! I’ve been itching to get to know you all a little bit better so I’m giving Facebook Live a stab. So I wanted to invite you to jump on a Facebook Live session I’m doing with my dear friend and personal development blogger Nikki Novo next week.

The crux? Just ask us questions! Ask us about branding! Ask us about social media! Ask us if we smoke weed (kidding!). Ask us ANYTHING! 

It’s happening next Tuesday, May 24 at 1 p.m. EST/10 a.m PST. We’ll be live on my blog’s page here:

See you there!

Cheeks On Fleek

You know I keep it real here. Over the past year, I lost 13 pounds and kept them off because I’ve drastically changed my eating habits (no more carbs and sugar!) and bumped up my workout game to rival that of an Olympian.

But…the weight loss has been no bueno to my face because it thinned out too much and I was starting to look like the creepy thingamajig in Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” painting. Thankfully, The Miami Institute took notice of my blog and offered me a consultation with Doctor Julio Gallo where we decided this girl needed some Juvéderm dermal fillers in my cheeks ASAP.

During my chat with Dr. Gallo, I learned that as we get older, our skin’s collagen production goes South (much like the direction of our boobs), which in turn, causes less firmness and suppleness. This equates to, yep, you guessed it… dreaded wrinkles and deep folds. And we all can agree that the only living creatures in which droopy/wrinkly skin looks cute on are basset hounds and Shar Peis. #Trust

So Juvéderm to the rescue! And I knew I was in good hands. You see, Doctor Gallo is Miami’s top plastic surgeon and take a look at my results above! I’m obsessed. He injected the apples of my cheeks with Juvéderm Voluma which added volume beneath my skin’s surface to lift and contour my cheek area. And, nope, it didn’t hurt because a nurse rubbed cream on the treated area 40 minutes beforehand so the face is nice and numb (cue The Weeknd’s “I Can’t Feel My Face” tune right about now). 

For those of you unfamiliar with The Miami Institute, their office is nestled inside the swanky Four Seasons Hotel in Downtown Miami and is super Chic (capital “C” for dramatic effect, natch). Swathed in contemporary art, the office boasts the best-of-the-best doctors and every get-pretty procedure under the sun. Celebrities (sorry…my lips are sealed!) flock to this office like moths to a flame and with good reason…the results here are perfection. To find out more, visit here or call (305) 692-0695.

I want to get back to my blog’s original roots — to cover the-best-of-the-best of everything in Miami so this post is going to be just that! As a Beauty Editor for legit publications (like Allure magazine) for the past 16 years, I’m often asked: Where is Miami’s best foot massage? Go to Rick at Emena Spa. What about the best laser treatment to remove dark pigmentation on my face? Book Holly at Miami Beach Plastic Surgery.  To-die for manicures? Seek out Martha at Vivid. 

How about deep facials? For the past two years I’ve been going to Caleb McGrew of Skin by Caleb at Junior & Hatter in Wynwood for my facials (starting at $95). I’m obsessed with homeboy’s no-holds-barred approach to extractions and he utilizes lancets for those gnarly big zits. He even lets me bust out a mirror and watch (like a total sick-o) as he extracts blackheads from my nose and chin because I’m a weird voyeurist like that. My favorite touch? When he applies the results-driven PCA Skin face mask, he gives an otherworldly neck, shoulder and foot massage so ridiculously yummy…you may beg for mercy. I’ve seriously considered cloning him like Dolly the cloned sheep so I can have a Caleb of my own! Oh dear, I sound like a stage 5 clinger.

But the real high note? Clear and glowy skin and no post-facial breakouts. #Trust 

And, nope, this is not a sponsored post. I love this man. Like, legit, love. He once gifted me an IKEA bath rug because I told him I loved how it felt on my feet. #TheLittleThings.

Call him at (305) 571-8361 for a good time  for a facial, waxing or brow tint. Thank me later!
