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.

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

Travel, West Palm Beach

West Palm Beach

christian thompson | christian confidentialchristian thompson | christian confidentialWest Palm Beach, where do I begin? Let’s just say that it’s getting super cold in Toronto and if anyone even mentions to me that we should “go on a trip” to somewhere warm, I’m pretty much in! My best friend had a few days off of work and I happened to be free so we booked an impromptu trip to West Palm Beach. We had no idea what to expect, other than warm weather + a beach and to be honest that was good enough for me. West Palm is located in Florida and happens to be one of the healthiest places within the United States – crazy right?! We stayed at The Kimpton Tideline Ocean Resort which is located right off the beach and neighbours to the Four Seasons.

 If you’re looking for a place to go and really have some quality time to yourself or with a special someone, West Palm Beach is a great option. Our day schedule consisted of working out, lounging by the beach and sipping on prosecco. At night we ventured out and socialized with the locals. One of the restaurants I fell in love with was Bucaan – their Sweet Corn Agnolotti pasta is a must try, so good! If you’re looking for nightlife action, everyone pretty much hangs out downtown in Delray Beach. This area is filled with restaurants and bars, one that I really liked was El Camino.

As always, I took a few pictures during my stay for you guys to check out – I hope you guys like them!

Playa De Castelldefels

My last few days in Spain, I stayed in a small town just outside of Barcelona called Castelldefels. Although Castelldefels seemed to be as beautiful as Barcelona, I decided to spend most of my time on the beach. A lot less crowded than Barcelona, Playa Castelldefels made for the perfect location to  read a good book, catch some sun & relax.

Casual Days | Street StyleWe all have those busy, errand-filled days where our outfit choices become less of a priority.  With the Holiday Season upon us, those days have been happening a bit more often than I’d like, so much that I decided to dedicate a post to it!  I definitely have my go-to casual pieces for those days when my mind is all over the place, things that I can throw together and know I still look stylish enough to be seen out and about.

Casual Days | Street StyleThis time of year it’s all about the sweater – this piece from Charlie Bymz is always a favourite because of its classic athletic cut.  The white calls for a bit more attention – I’d be lying if I said I minded.
