Living in Miami is one of those things that I appreciate because I can wear a bikini and a coverup in the middle of winter. I got this really cute terry cloth beach cover up from Laura Manara, and accessorized it with a woven belt, and a bright graphic bikini top from Red Carter Swim. This type of cover-up can serve as a cute dress while walking around the pier or grabbing lunch in between hitting the pool or the beach, so it’s the perfect piece to be living that resort life.
As any other women, I have been in the never ending search to have a hair-free body. I have tried different routes, shaving, waxing, I even tried one of those take a home DIY devices. I have tried everything. I have done laser hair removal in some areas of my body before, but nothing compares to the pleasant experience I had at Body Details.
At my first visit, I did a consultation tailored to my needs, I noticed that Body Details has a very courteous and knowledgeable staff, we discuss the areas I was interested in having done and they told to me what to expect about the procedure. They also explain to me the different types of laser used for hair removal, how the YAG laser worked and how it would work well with my skin tone pigments without burning my skin, this is a biggie for darker skin tones and laser. I left feeling confident of being in good hands.
Laser hair removal is a process of several sessions (10 sessions). I had my first session for full legs and bikini brazilian, the process took about an hour and I left with. smooth and hair-less skin. After the first session follows a shedding process noticeable during the next 7-15 days. My next appointment is in 10 weeks. Keep posted on my social media twitter @GissiJ, Snapchat and my Instagram for follow ups and behind the scenes.
Body Details has seven locations thru out South Florida and you can call them for a consultation and book an appointment to: 866-708-8645

I’m in a stage of my life that I seem to be working all the time, either in the architecture side of things or on the blog and my fashion illustrations. I may be exaggerating about working 24/7, but it feels that way sometimes. Continue reading

I have been on a sneakers kick lately, they are so comfortable specially when running errands or walking around a city while traveling. I’m usually not a sneakers wearing kinda girl, I only wear them when I’m exercising, but I have found a new certain kind of love for them. I wore this almost all black outfit with a gray coat during my last trip to New York City, the weather was a little cold for what I am used to, but I managed.
A few weeks back I had the chance to live draw at the new Kit and Ace store during their opening of their new location in Coconut Grove, so I wanted to share with you a little bit of the event and this brand. Continue reading
As you may have noticed I have been a little M.I.A., being a capricorn makes me be one of those people that it is always following rules, where everything needs to be perfect and align in it’s place. This is also probably why I chose my career path. But besides all that I also have a very creative side, where my thinking is not all “black and white”, where I allow “gray” areas to blend in and letting my inner artist come out. I needed a little break and focus on things and finding the goals that I want to accomplish this year for the blog and for my inner self.
The artist side of me is always pursuing being unique. I personally like that my artwork it’s my own and I get super happy when someone recognizes it. I love hearing when someone on the street says to me: “Oh! you are that girl on instagram that draws the lashes”, I do a little happy dance and get more motivation to keep on drawing.
And on my pursue to be different, and not like everybody else, I have gotten inspired by Motorola and their new limited edition of the Moto X Pure Edition designed by Jonathan Adler. The designs are unique and eye catching, not just your traditional white or gray phone. From the three limited edition designs, I am sure anyone can find a style that fits their lifestyle.
Personally, I like all three designs but my fave is the one with the bold circles, so naturally I used it as the main source of inspiration for the fashion illustration above.
Over the weekend, it was the iHeart radio Fiesta Latina concert, JCPenney invited me to an exclusive Glam Suite at the penthouse of the Delano, to get ready before the concert. I got to pick an outfit from Bisou Bisou and get all glammed up. My hair was done by a stylist from InStyle salon (I learned that there’s a location at Dadeland Mall inside the JCP store) and makeup by Sephora, all this courtesy of JCPenney.
At the suite, I got to meet Bisou Bisou’s designer Michele Bohbot, while browsing pieces of her collection. She is the sweetest. Had a few bites and refreshments while spending a very nice afternoon among blogger and media friends.
For my outfit, I picked faux leather panel leggings, with a black fringe cami and an oversized faux leather jacket cuffed up, I went up a few sizes to give it the borrow from a boyfriend look. See below to shop the look!
An in the essence of longing for Fall weather in Miami as soon as possible (it is still 85 degrees in November), I wore this sweater and boots with shorts. I usually don’t like brown boots but I scored this pair of riding boots from Cole Haan during a mega sale at Nordstrom Rack a few months ago. They are so comfy and look so good. The chunky sweater I could only wear for a few minutes while I was doing this shoot, because the heat got the best of me, so now I am saving it until cooler temperatures get here.
