Brickellista started as my Twitter alias in August 2009 with the purpose of connecting with the hottest events and best restaurants. I was new to Miami & wanted a way to connect without putting myself “out there.” I’m actually an introvert if you can believe that?!

Brickellista Files is a place where I share my love of Miami, fashion, and my travels.

When I’m not blogging, I’m a marketing ninja at a global firm. I went to business school and focused on expansion strategies into emerging economies – kind of an economics geek! This blog is where I share my adventures, things I am passionate about, and fashion that inspires me.

WHAT IS BRICKELL?

brik-əl – the financial district of Miami’s Downtown area. I like to think of it as a tanner sexier version of the Upper East Side.
