Mia Marcelle Swimwear return to Miami w/ WOW-Worthy Collection

Miami, FL. Napa Valley, California’s Mia Marcelle Swimwear, opened the show at SWIMMIAMI with a live electric violinist playing “When I Met You in the Summer” before golden clad models took to the runway.

The collection included sexy silhouettes, with a personal touch seen in every piece, including an original print, Cube, designed by her 8-year old son. Adding a twist on traditional one-pieces, plunging necklines and cut out sides featuring intricately braided straps complemented the barely-there bikinis.

The audience was captivated by the bold, golden beauty accents and beehive bouffants as the models walked the runway in the 2016 collection wearing gold ankle-strap stilettos and gold hoops. For the finale, model Johanna Da Ru strutted down the runway wearing a $1,500 handcrafted, custom teeny bikini covered in Swarvoski Crystals all fixed to the suit by hand.

Sexy yet functional, the many of the pieces such as the Paia Multi Way Bandeau & Nikki bikini as well as the Hot Coral Chantelle Top & Hana Bottom were expertly crafted with sustainable techno-fabric imported from Italy. This fabric, made with Econly, is 100% regenerated polyamide fibers from post-consumer materials; which when tested in real life conditions proved to be twice as resistant to elements such as chlorine, suntan creams and oils. The innovative construction and the presence of LYCRA XTRA LIFE allows for Mia Marcelle’s swimwear to successfully combine stylish and sexy with strength that will endure wear and tear.

VIP guests were gifted with incredible branded beach bags, packed with all the goodies you need for a flawless day at the beach, including a branded beach towel.

About Mia Marcelle Swimwear

Mia Marcelle designer Amber Wagner, along with her husband Joe Wagner, added some spice to their Napa Valley winery by making it the headquarters for their burgeoning swimwear line. Drawing inspiration from the beauty of confident women, the mother of six chose to chase her dream of fashion by diving head first into the swim world. Her pieces breathe femininity and sensuality, incorporating both sophistication and minimalism.

Hair this & that on Studio 10

Today I share some “Hair This and Hair That” on Studio 10.

Watch the segment here:

Just like our skincare routine our haircare routine should be changed with the upcoming summer months. Here are a few tips to change up your haircare routine for beautiful, soft, healthy hair all through the summer.

Like the oils in your skin, the oils in your scalp can speed up in the summer causing excess buildup and the clogging of the hair follicles. Beautiful hair starts with shampoo and conditioner. Treatment shampoos and conditioners like Pura d’or Organic Shampoos and Conditioners come in a variety of options from hair loss treatments, to scalp dandruff treatments. When the follicles (which are like pores) get clogged it can cause your hair to look dull, and dirty. Be sure to use the right shampoo and conditioning products during the summer months.

Also, just like our skin, our hair needs protection from the harmful UV rays. Especially if your hair is color treated. When going outside to the beach or just to go for a stroll, wrap your hair in a cute scarf or put on a hat. When hair is color treated it can tend to fade a lot faster and can sometimes turn a little brassy. Hats block sun and are also great for protecting our faceas well.

We have heard of swimmer’s ear? But have you ever heard of swimmer’s hair? Thats right. As we know during the summer we swim a lot and when we can tend to get a chlorine buildup on our hair leaving that ugly discoloration of green film. BUT it not only happens to blondes. A quick remedy to take care of that problem is before going in any kind of water (salt, lake, pool etc.) rinse your hair with clean lukewarm tap water. Also, be sure to apply a coat of leave in conditioner to act as a barrier.

Summer weather is also notorious for creating frizz! When applying an anti frizz serum make sure you find one that is silicone based. The silicone in today’s products are more advanced giving it more access to the hair. It is also non greasy and micro fine allowing more particles to process into the hair. The more particles the more you can be sure the deposit of the serum is even throughout the whole head. Follow instructions on the bottle of how much you should use (usually a dime size amount).

If you have long hair, the struggle of the heat and perspiration can be a real drag. And when we go out, sometimes we don’t want to have to put our hair up. Baby Powder can act as a barrier as well. Before you put on your clothes or even do your hair apply a thin layer of baby powder to your skin, like the back of your neck, down your back etc. then finish dressing. You may notice that throughout the day just how much more comfortable you will feel. Also, the baby powder leaves a cooling sensation on your skin.

Treat your eyes like “Gold”faden

The eyes are the windows to the soul. But when eyes are tired it can get a little “foggy”. In a world where technology is the center of our lives and business even looking at screens can cause it too. With Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes you can clear your windows in as little as 1-2 weeks. It could not have come a t a better time in my life.

Goldfaden MD bright eyes formula will help to decrease the appearance of fine line, dark circles and will reduce puffiness. I know from working on a computer for 8-9 hours a day by the end I’d be surprised if they weren’t puffy lol. Also, being deprived of sleep does not help either. It seems that no matter how much water I drink they just don’t seem to go away. Goldfaden is helpful with all skin types even sensitive skin. All products are gluten, paraben, Petrochemical, alcohol and silicone free. I swear I would not know what I would do without it. ( a video on the product will be filmed and airing soon)

Goldfaden was created by Dr. Gary Goldfaden, M.D., a practicing dermatologist. He has been practicing in South Florida for over 40 years with one sole purpose “My ultimate goal is to let people have a relatively simple skincare regimen that is both preventative and restorative.” He has many more products to choose from. For more info on all the Goldfaden products visit
