You can find the convenient Capital One Cafe in the Capital One Building on South Miami Avenue. This popular hotspot is a relaxing place to sit back, enjoy a warm some fresh joe and get to work. There is free wifi that is reliable enough to get your tasks completed on time. We personally find that Capital One Cafe is a great rendezvous spot for quick meetings between friends and associates.

The Apple Store Brickell City Centre Opens March 25

The rumors are true: Brickell City Centre is getting its own Apple Store and it is set to open on March 25, 2017 at 10 AM on the shopping centre’s second floor. Construction workers are onsite around the clock to get the latest tech outpost up and running: We spotted them working as late as 11 PM on March 15. The announcement is live on the Apple website.

Miami.com broke the retail news, highlighting first-time perks that the new Brickell location will offer: There will be a group of “Creative Pros,” a “Boardroom,” and “The Forum.” The overall idea is to create a hub-like experience.

Senior Market Director for Apple Retail, Enrique Atienza, explained each concept to Miami.com. Apple’s “Creative Pros” are specialists in their fields–“We have photographers, bakers, comedians, we even have a fire dancer.”– that were tapped to show shoppers how Apple products can help them maximize their businesses, passions, and endeavors. Miami.com goes on to explain Apple’s “Boardroom” and “The Forum.”

“Apple Brickell City Centre will also have the first Boardroom in the Miami. This is a spot reserved for entrepreneurs, developers and business customers to get hands-on advice and training which could potentially become a hub for downtown’s burgeoning financial sector.

Another exciting feature is The Forum, a gathering space anchored by a video wall that will host educational events for kids and teachers, sessions for tech creatives, game nights and other programming, premieres and workshops with visiting tech experts, artists and musicians.”

Apple’s presence will be the most prominent opening since Brickell City Centre’s November 2016 unveiling. Other recent debuts include Acqua di Parma and Kendra Scott. MAC, Zara, and Centrale–a three story Italian food emporium–will open by year’s end.

Acqua di Parma Brings Italy’s Luxury Lifestyle To Brickell City Centre

Acqua di Parma, a leader in Italian fragrances and craftsmanship, has joined the select mix of upscale retailers from around the world at Brickell City Centre. Located on Level 1, this is the brand’s first stateside outpost and its fourth global free-standing store. Such a monumental international foray could have landed in any Miami area, but Acqua di Parma selected Brickell for its ongoing lifestyle blossoming. “Brickell City Centre is the place to be,” says CEO and President Laura Burdese. “It is contemporary, our target is here, and so far we have had [a] good public response.”

The discerning clientele is devoted to the brand’s quality; after over 100 years in business, the fragrance has remained true to its hand-blended roots. The perennial, top-selling, unisex scents are the same–timeless, passed down by generations, and for any occasion. Colonia has been the hero product since 1916; Blu Mediterraneo is reminiscent of the seaside and popular for warm seasons and climates, and Oud is unlike any other in the line-up and especially appropriate for evening outings.

The by-appointment, intimate Barbershop is an exclusive service of Acqua boutiques, offering the traditional Italian ritual of blade shaving and grooming. Another store exclusive is the Leather Collection of artisanally dyed and sewn calf and buffalo skin accessories, including cigar boxes, humidors, and travel rolls. For the home, a standard assortment meets painted Murano candles; the line’s Fruits and Flowers candles and room sprays are one-of-kind Brickell finds. Expect Acqua di Parma to host in-store events and local collaborations that speak to its signature aesthetic: “The aim is to bring Italian, refined, exclusive lifestyle into Miami; enjoy a little sun ray, scent, and dream of Italy,” says Burdese.

what she said beauty panel w miam

Miami’s Beauty Business Leaders Talk Branding, Trends, and More

Dozens of women took to the W Miami’s Whisper Lounge for the inaugural What She Said panel series on Tuesday, January 24, 2017.  Blogger Maria Tettamanti of The Wordy Girl moderated a discussion featuring Natalie Gee and Celene Gee of GEE Beauty, and Lisa Goldfaden of Goldfaden MD (daughter to renowned dermatologist, Gary Goldfaden, M.D.) The topic: “Clean beauty.”

The speakers emphasized that clean beauty is a lifestyle preference, one that understands what works best for each individual and that doesn’t take the beauty process too seriously. They added that “illuminating from within” is just as important as what is put on topically–from the food one eats to their daily routines.

 

w miami what she said panel

During the open format portion, Brickell.com asked each panelist what advice they would give to young entrepreneurs. “Don’t take ‘no’ for an answer. Don’t be afraid of all the ‘no’s’ that people are going to say to you,” noted Natalie Gee. “Be true to yourself and set yourself apart.” Celene Gee added, “Consistency is key and most importantly, stay focused!”

Lisa Goldfaden advised to start from the beginning, to break at one’s strength, and to have a support system in place. “First, know your purpose in why you want to be an entrepreneur. Being an entrepreneur is not for everyone. Find one thing that you’re good at and excel in it. Don’t try to do too many things at once. Have a good support system for those bad days you’ll have.”

W Miami will continue the What She Said series on Tuesday, January with a fashion-themed gathering. Celebrated stylist and founder of Style Out of the City, Elysze Held will be in conversation with local style influencers: They include  Style Mafia founder, Simonett Pereira,  The Fashion Poet founder, Annie Vazquez, and KRELWear founder, Karelle Levy.
