Hello, I’m alive and well and still in Miami! It’s been insanely busy with work the past week, and now that Miami Swim Week is upon us, the fun is really just getting started! Wednesday night I had the honor of attending the 3rd Annual Emerging Designers show hosted by Peroni Nastro Azzurro at the SLS Hotel. I was thrilled to be able to see and support young new designers from around the world, and excited for them that they had this amazing opportunity to showcase their talents. Ten designers showed two pieces each, and the 2013 runner up K8 Swimwear and 2013 winner Kim Nguyen got to show their lines to open and close the show, respectively.

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).
