She spoke to us before her trip:

Are you excited for your trip to Miami? 

Yes. I grew up in Marco Island, Florida, so I always feel home here. Plus, it’s Miami Swim Week so there’s lots to do.

What do you like to do when in Miami? 

Cuban food is a must when in Miami—otherwise you can find me unwinding with a good book by the pool or relaxing on the beach.

What is the must have sunglasses trend this summer? 

Round frames are my must-have summer style. There are so many styles—both dressy and casual, so they are pretty much perfect for any occasion and any face shape can wear this style.

What other news do you news? 

I’m working on music to release in the next year, and you can catch my show Making History on FOX online or Hulu.
