Key Biscayne

Key Biscayne, just east of bustling Brickell Avenue and the frenetic pace of downtown Miami, is a serene and scenic island paradise and premier resort community. Although discovered by Ponce de Leon in the 1500’s, the Key was not developed until the Matheson family, in 1947, donated a large parcel of land to Miami for Crandon Park in exchange for the erection of the Rickenbacker Causeway connecting the island to Miami. Once completed, the island began to take shape attracting affluent residents seeking a low-key tropical lifestyle. President Nixon further popularized Key Biscayne when he purchased a waterfront compound in 1969 frequently referred to as the Florida White House. Key Biscayne was incorporated as its own city in 1991. Visitors to this Island sanctuary enjoy spectacular palm-tree lined beaches, upscale shops, outstanding restaurants and luxury resort hotels, as well as the many gorgeous parks including Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, listed as one of the best beaches in the U.S., and Crandon Park. Runners and cyclists share the path along Rickenbacker Causeway and out to Key Biscayne for a scenic and challenging route. Golfers rave about the demanding but breathtaking course, the Links at Key Biscayne. Home to the Sony Ericsson Open, Key Biscayne draws the top-ranked professional tennis players and spectators from around the world to its shores. The new recreation and community center with multi-use courts,...

Hey Fashionistas! As promised, here’s another behind the scenes look at Miami Swim Week. I spent my Saturday night at the chic W Hotel South Beach for the unveiling of the Frankie’s Bikinis swimwear collection. I had the privilege of interviewing the fabulous swimsuit designer, Francesca Aiello. Aiello is a twenty year old, (yes, you read that correctly) California girl who decided at the age of seventeen, she wanted to design swimsuits that were both suitable for her surfer lifestyle and still allowed her to look fashionable. Fast forward a couple years later, she is now unveiling her swimsuit collection a second time around at Miami Swim Week. Aiello’s story is a testament to others; no matter what age you are, no dream is too big to achieve! Check out the interview below. TFB: At what age did you start working in the swimwear industry? FA: Seventeen TFB: What advice do you have for women, like yourself, attempting to tap into the fashion industry at a young age? FA: I think social media right now is incredible.
