Pitbull's New Year's Revolution on FOX

December 31, 2014

Hi Loves!

2014 is coming to an end, and 2015 is bursting through the door! (and xo, Chrisse turns TWO on the 1st, EEK!) I'm so blessed to see another year and to spend another New Year's in Beautiful Miami, but guess what, so can you!

Tonight on FOX, Mr. 305 himself is hosting 'Pitbull's New Year's Revolution' LIVE from the gorgeous Thompson Hotel in Miami Beach starting at 8PM EST.

Throughout the night Mr. Worldwide will be joined by plenty of his friends including hosts LaLa Anythony & Roocsi Diaz along with performers Fifth Harmony, Becky G, the Band Perry, NeYo, Enrique Iglesias, Fall Out Boy, and DJ Sinatra. Executive produced by Evan Prager and Jesse Ignjatovic.

I got a chance to preview the venue and rehearsals yesterday and I can barely wait until tonight to bring in 2015! So make sure to tune in and ring in the New Year along with me and the the beautiful people of South Florida on FOX (8PM ET, Set your reminder!).

P.S. Make sure to use and keep up with #PitbullNYE so you can be apart of the show too!

Holiday Gifts With A Personal Touch

Holiday Gifts With a Personsal Touch Under $130

Hi Loves!

Christmas is getting closer and closer, have you finished your holiday shopping yet? When I give someone a present I think long and hard about it so it's something I know the receiver would love. I usually go for personalized gifts because they are "personal" and isn't just a gift card or a generic tie.


Hi Loves!

Check out Day 2 of my VLOGmas series, LIVE on my second YouTube Channel 'Up Close & Chrisse'. I'm recaping Art Basel (including a clip of Miley Cyrus twerking) and share the one holiday food I despise.

Winter is fast approaching and I don't know about your nails, but mine are already rebelling against the cold months ahead (at least what I consider being cold in Miami).

BET Art Lounge Dinner

December 6, 2014

Hi Loves!

I've been running around all over the place for Art Basel this past week, but I had to take the time and tell you about the amazing 2nd Annual Fly Beyond Awards dinner I attended last night.

The dinner was hosted by Fusion MIA, Jambalaya Media Group, and BET Networks and sponsored by Grey Goose, as well as, Microsoft. The night's honoree's in included the CEO of BET Networks, Debra Lee, the Artist, David Driskell, and Curator Dr. Tuliza Fleming.

The event was held in the beautifully decorated BET Art Lounge, and the food (made by Amaris Jones & served by students from the Culinary program at Northwestern High School) was so good. We were also treated to an amazing performance by dancers from Pierre London dance group.

I had the chance to meet so many great and inspirational people and so thankful to Fusion MIA for having me. Check out all the pics below and stay tuned for some footage in VLOGmas videos this week.


December 3, 2014

Hi Loves!

I've wanted to participate in VLOGmas ever since last year, so when December 1st rolled around this year, I figured.. Why not?! 

Since VLOGmas is something typically done on a "second channel" (the more personal vlog for vloggers aside from their main channel). It took some time to come up with a name for it but 'Up Close & Chrisse' came to mind and I said PERFECT!

You can subscribe to my channel here and check out my first day of VLOGmas below.

Art Basel | Miami Beach 2014

December 2, 2014

Hi Loves!

Today is the start of my favorite week of the year in Miami, Art Basel!
If you aren't familiar with what Art Basel is, it's a week of art fairs, events, dinners, parties, and lots of networking opportunities during the first week of December that attracts art lovers, socialites, musicians, actors, brands, and entrepreneurs. The crowd is so diverse and there are so many amazing works of art, it is so worth experiencing at least once.

I'll be running around Wynwood and Miami Beach to a some events and art fairs which, of course, I will recap for you all.  

If you happen to be in the 305 this week, I've listed some day/night outfit ideas, as well as some events and art fairs you should check out (if you see me, pleaseee say Hello).
