I think I haven’t seen a magic show since I was a kid. I like the idea of illusions and such, so I was delighted when I was invited to the Faena Theater to see Kevin & Caruso’s Magique. This is a show for all ages, and trust me I went in thinking this was going to be a few magic card tricks that I could figure out, but I have to say it was a very surprising night.

Because It’ s All About the Children

For a good cause
At a special dinner for a good cause

Today’s post is a little different, I wanted to show the outfit I wore to a influencer event with the Miami Children’s Health Foundation, last week, that my blogger girl Kelly Saks and the MCHF hosted. But I decided not to talk so much about the clothes I was wearing, but more about the Miami Children’s Health Foundation and how the foundation raises funds to benefit the children cared at the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, and how you can show support for them, just by sharing in social media.

The dinner was held at the River Yacht Club and thru out the night we got to hear a little more about the foundation and how it has help so many children and their medical needs. Yesterday May 16th, the foundation launched a special social media campaign called #2gether4thechildren, that lets you add a heart shaped design filter to your facebook profile picture, designed by Romero Britto.
