What’s Hot

Summer is Upon us and While that Generally Means More Time Enjoying Leisure Activities Outdoors – or Recovering Inside to Beat the Heat – There is Always Time for a Good Shopping Expedition. Especially Since Stores are Typically Very Air Conditioned

If you’re planning on spending any time outside this summer, some serious sunblock is a necessity. We think that the M-61 Hydraboost Moisturizer SPF 30 from Miracle Mile’s recently opened Bluemercury outpost is the ideal option because it hydrates and firms your skin while protecting you from those harmful rays. Retail: $68.

Summer Lovin’

Infuse your seasonal wardrobe with a pop of color with the “Amor” handbag from the Downtown Coral Gables boutique My Best Friend’s Closet. While the shop usually caters to the Millennial crowd, we think that anyone would be thrilled to accessorize with this chic piece. It’s also a fabulous conversation starter. Retail: $55.

Keeping Time

This classic time piece is the perfect summer accessory, especially for the adventuring type. It’s great for fishing and boating, as the Coastline Chronograph watch is water resistant, yet evokes a sophisticated style with its rose gold finish and deep blue face. Retail: $255.

Hot Seat

The ultimate tool for the adrenaline junkie, the Peloton bike takes workouts to the next level – from the comfort of home. With access to hundreds of themed spin classes, it’s no wonder that the sleek cycle has reached somewhat of a cult status as of late. Retail: $2,245 (including delivery) and $39/month for unlimited live and on-demand classes.

Rock Steady

Not all bassinets are created equal. This one offers your baby not just a comfortable sleeping situation; it’s so sleek that it also basically doubles as an art piece. Made from rose gold-plated steel and sold at Nini & Loli, the Aura bassinet from Nursery Works would be the perfect gift for an expecting mother who likes to push the envelope. Retail: $500.
