Actress, activist and social media superstar with more than 16 million Instagram followers (!!!), Shay Mitchell is a force to be reckoned with. And precisely why Ocean Drive magazine put her on the cover of the May/June “Women of Influence” issue. Mitchell will also be traveling to Miami next month to celebrate her cover debut with a very VIP party, of course.
A few reasons why the “Pretty Little Liars” star will be happy about her trip: “You will probably find me at Joe’s Stone Crab; it’s the first place I go. That Key lime pie is not okay. I’ve had it flown to my house in LA. I love Little Havana and the live music,” the Canadian tells the magazine. “I love the Spanish influence that Miami has, and I love going out dancing. I went to Ball & Chain and just started dancing with the older man outside. The women are so glamorous and done up. Miami is so sexy.”
And what about all those social media followers?
“My biggest tip is to take 5,000 photos,” she advises.
Never miss a local story.
“My friends who have taken photos of me know that it takes an entire camera roll full of photos, and hopefully, fingers crossed, there will be one that I like. And always find the light! Natural light is the best.”
