Celebrations In Miami

@christianconfidentialHello friends, did you miss me?!  I really have to get better at these frequent updates, it’s nuts and not cool.. sigh.

On another note, I was in Miami earlier this week celebrating one of my best friends birthdays and I’ve got a little travel diary for you guys. I really enjoy taking lifestyle pictures and just capturing the moments when they’re happening and although this trip was short there were plenty of memories created!

Anytime Zineb, Kenza and I are together, it’s always full of inside jokes and fun. I’ve known them both for about 10 years now, so when Zineb said she wanted to celebrate her birthday in Miami, I was all the way in! Most of the trip we spent our time eating great food ( Prime Italian, Carpaccio, La Petite Maison), drinking champagne + wine, laying out by the plunge pool (The Edition)  and doing some retail therapy ( Bal Harbour).

Miami literally feels like a second home to me now but I swear every time I visit, I discover  somewhere new. This time it was the restaurant La Petite Maison.. OMG, the food was so good! Zineb and her fiancé Daniel (aka my tequila shot brother) always gush about this restaurant in Dubai and insisted that we go to their Miami location for her birthday dinner.  If you’re into French cuisine and love a great cocktail, the next time you’re in Miami, you have to try it!

If you’re following me on Instagram (@christianconfidential) and watched my stories, you know that I was obsessing over a specific pair of Balenciaga Speed Trainers. I’ve actually wanted a pair for a while now and every time I went to purchase them they never had my size in the colour way that I wanted. Well, on our second trip to Bal Harbour (yes, second haha), I decided to ask about their latest drop of the Speed Trainers  and not only did they have my size, once I tried them on I knew I had to get them (sigh…). I can’t wait to show you guys how I style them!

That being said, scroll on down and check out these images that I captured on the trip. I also promise that I’ll be back sooner than later with some more style content for you guys.

xoxo

The decor was all Daniel, even though he wasn’t able to be there he found the best ways to make her feel special!

Birthday Weekend Recap

Christian 2.6 | Birthday RecapChristian 2.6 | Birthday RecapIt’s official, I am now another year older and hopefully a little wiser. Last weekend was definitely filled with a lot of love, laughter and positive vibes all around. The night before my birthday (June 18th), I decided to host a little get together for a few friends. We nibbled on charcuterie  and cheese boards, sipped on Freixenet Cava, stayed hydrated with Boxed Water and danced to only the best trap music.. Fetty Wap anyone?!  At midnight we made a quick toast & kept the party going. I honestly don’t think that there’s a better way to ring in your birthday than being surrounded by a beautiful group of friends, old and new.Christian 2.6 | Birthday RecapChristian 2.6 | Birthday Recap  Yashana R, Asia F, Christina P, Alexander L, Sasha E, Zineb S, Stace G, Shayna D, Salina G, Justine & Daniel H.

Christian 2.6 | Birthday RecapMy friends at General Motors gave me crimson red wheels for the weekend!

On my actual birthday, I decided to keep it low key and dedicated the day to taking care of myself (gym, spa, healthy eating and a good night sleep). It’s exactly what I needed to be ready for the adventures that I would get up to on Saturday.Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 presetChristian 2.6 | Birthday RecapAfter shooting the ‘Live Beautifully’ – The Lifestyle Series Pt. 2 a few weeks back a few of my friends and I have been itching to head back out to Niagara-on-the-Lake to visit some more wineries. An amazing opportunity came up to not only visit a winery but attend the 3rd annual Niagara Wine Festival Tailgate Party. The Christian Confidential team & friends packed our day bags, buckled up and headed out to our first stop, Mike Weir Winery courtesy of Buick Canada in the 2015, Enclave. A crowd favourite for the roomy interior and the OnStar capabilities, which may have saved us from getting lost once or twice.

Mike Weir Winery is definitely a special place – beautiful space, great wine, delicious food (you NEED to try their fries) and an amazing view. We enjoyed bottles of their Underdog wine as well as their Vinyāsa wine, which is a great choice if you’re looking for something low in calories.

My friends and I weren’t really sure what to expect at this event but trust me when I say we were all glad we came out to play. An array of food, wine and culture, there was something for everyone. The party took place in a vineyard and hosted approximately 700 people. . A special thank you to Kimberly Hundertmark for the amazing hospitality that evening.

It was the perfect ending to an amazing day. The highlight for me this weekend was being able to see my friends old and new come together and experiencing this with me. I’m all about creating memories through experiences and this past weekend allowed me to create new ones with people that I love. On that note, I’m looking forward to what 26 has to offer!
