#TeamNow All Summer 16′ Tees!

So, I’m not big into merch but I made these cute shirts last minute to go on INCEPTION AT SEA and rep my set. So I had a few left over and decided to see if anyone wants to grab some! Paid to make these out of my own pocket so all purchases are very welcomed :) I think they are super cute and I’m kind of digging the whole “Live in the Moment” saying that I am trying to encourage others for.

IT’S NOW OR NEVER! I mean if not now, then when?

Shout out to the boys over at 8&9 Clothing plus Smitty for coming through with the clutch photos!

Enjoy! PURCHASE HERE!

listen: NOW RADIO FT. LOUIE ARSON

NOWRADIO2

I’m excited to announce episode 2 of NOW RADIO  - This platform is an opportunity for you to get an idea of the musical tastes of Norma and #TeamNow affiliates!  You all know about the amazing parties but we also want to highlight an appreciation for music in general and the influence of DJ’s.  DJ’s play a special role daily by building up a vibe and energy for your night, car rides, workouts or just a chill night at home. NOW Radio will be used to show followers what Norma’s really dope DJ and producer friends do best. Which is of course playing amazing music but also giving insight into different genres and in a sense taking you on a journey through sound!  Also at the end of each episode I have a simple laid back, interview style conversation to get an idea of what inspires them and to just talk about the music.

This week we have DJ/Producer Louie Arson, from Miami. He really takes his time to work on his craft and put personal touches to perfect and deliver originality in his sets. This one was no different and you will be very impressed at how much work he put into the production of this mix. Plus the closing interview was hilarious and fun to record!

Im really proud of this episode and HUGE shout out to Pancho from Hometeam productions for being a dope ass producer and engineer as well as a sort of second host haha. Sit back and Enjoy!

Feedback in the comments section would definitely be appreciated! Also if theres any DJ’s you’d like featured on NOW Radio just leave a comment below and I’ll try to work some magic!

TapToBook Just Got Me Fly ;)

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

So, whats better than last minute spontaneous adventures? Not a lot in my book, I’m horrible when it comes to managing my time so when TapToBook came to Miami and offered last minute appointments for tons of crazy services I was super excited to give it a try.

I had been waiting for the right moment to set aside some time to enjoy myself and do something to pamper myself. Whats crazy is this easy-to-use app offered same day booking for tons of activities ranging from jet skiing and bike rides to manicures and waxes. With me, I’m always running around, so I’m always unsure of when I’ll have a second to myself to do something relaxing. So to have the power to make same day reservations for dozens of services was super exciting. SO! When I had some free time I found something on the app that I had been dying to do for months. Eyelash extensions!

I’m super low maintenance - so I rarely do anything too girly that takes effort, lol for real. I’ve been meaning to get a facial lately and my nails are horrific – but with my horrible case of NO EYELASHES – it thought it might be a good idea to add some Kylie Jenner to my eyelashes.

I was in the Brickell area after running some errands and saw that RIK RAK had some appointments available that same day. I opened the app, selected my appointment time, and VOILA! – that was it! Easy enough, huh?

I arrived to the salon which was something I’ve never seen before – a all-in-one alone/cafe/boutique/make-up store! Wow, okay! So I sat down, waited for my eyelash specialist while munching on a Chicken Curry Slider – and then Tay arrived to make me all glamorous!

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

It was painless and lasted about an hour but I didn’t even notice the time fly because Tay and me had such great chemistry and by the time I knew it – I was looking like Kylie Jenner in no time.

I’m super happy with my lashes and most importantly, it was all super easy with the Tap To Book app! If your always on the run like me, I 100% recommend you trying out the app for on the go last minute ideas for those perfect Sundays we get in Miami where you know there’s something you could be doing but need some great recommendations.

Norma Now approved!

EVENT RECAP: Sundaze @ Sidebar 2/8

Another week, another round of events. Safe to say, I am tired.

Sidebar in Brickell is always fun. I am lucky enough to have my own Sunday party there titled SUNDAZE. This past Super Bowl Sunday we did a Super Bowl themed party! We set up the projectors, laid out some chairs, and made our very own watch party! So good to see all the usual faces and some new ones! We had the homies Eccentrix Sounds in the building too, playing all the good good Caribbean vibes. We got a dunk tank thinking it would be fun but no one got in it because for once in Miami is was cold. Lesson learned lmao. Oh well.

Every Sunday it’s hard, it’s a gamble and I really try to make it special each time. Its hard doing events and especially a weekly without any help really. Me and my partners Junil and Gio try every week to spice it up and make it different which is why we have different DJs, different drink specials, and the bounce house and games. We want to make Sundays a chill place to hang out with friends and chill out. Nonetheless, I’m enjoying getting more experience with weekly parties, watching crowds, and happy to see people’s faces every week with some incredible music and great energy! If your reading this, you should come next week :)

Norma Now Holiday Party! RECAP

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

ALL PHOTOS BY THE LOVELY KATHERINE ROSARIO @KMERCEDSR

It’s that special time of the year. We wait all year for the feeling of family and love to hover around us around the Holidays. Honestly for me, it’s the only time of the year I find myself falling back into whats really important: family. Family is important to me as I take all my friends and supporters as an extended family of sorts. I mean I see a lot of them every week, for christ sakes!

I was lucky enough to put a little friends and family holiday party together with the great guys over at COYO Taco at their new POP-UP location on South Beach and I’ve got to say it was just pure amazing vibes! I’m all about sitting somewhere and having real conversations with people. Sometimes the club is too much, I actually want to hear you and what you saying, you know? haha. So imagine tons of tacos, quesadillas, chips and dip and margaritas – ALL FOR FREE! Too cool.

I love COYO and what their doing to bring new & refreshing to Miami and its music, food, and social scene. I think everyone had a great time and I had an amazing time welcoming all my supporters to enjoy a night of love and laughter! It’s the most I could do for the year around support. Until next time ;) looking forward to more magic to be made with COYO, jason and Sven! See ya!

Anything can happen at The Night Show – Event Recap

120315-NightShow-4

There is nothing like a NormaNow party and the Night Show was a full representation of that. Moving in silence, I was able to put together a really cool event for Art Basel in the beginning of the madness of what is Art Basel week. Coming together for the people – I linked up with Ashley Outrageous and Cashavelli to create something memorable. Music was presented by Just Dimy, Kitty Cash, LTENGHT, JuniLL and the infamous Mannie Fresh. They had the whole crowd turn up and ready to dance, but the night doesn’t end there. The sauce God, Post Malone also came through for a live performance and no one could help but sing along. Despite the bad weather and the unruly crowds at the door, Libertine security kept the situations to a minimal. Creatives like A$AP Rocky, J $tash and Ian Conner also showed up to see what all the talk was about. All in all the night was a success. Missed out? Take a look at some of the flicks captured by Kathy (@KMercedesR) below. Can we also say how bomb this flyer is? Ya!! Its the little things.

Looking forward to what the new year brings with the momentum after Art Basel – I’m ready to create some magic with my friends and get things poppin! Art Basel really taught me a lot and proved to me more then ever that I really need some help as things expand and grow. I’m looking forward to everything and so happy I could help put on a really dope show with my friends! Until next time :)

So, I planned a trip with all my closest friends to Orlando, Florida for the yearly Halloween Horror Nights event at Universal Studios (so overdue!) and I needed a car. I put all my contacts together and thought, how can I get a free whip to the O? Oh well, there is an upside to this whole “social media” thing. Luckily my friends over at Team Epiphany were able to put me in contact with Chevrolet and the rest was magic! A car service company arrived in the morning before we departed on the 4 hour (or 3 depending on who’s driving haha) trip to Orlando. Immediately I was intimidated by how big this thing was! Little me in this huge car!? But we did it, and boy was the car ride an interesting one to say the least. Put 8 BIG personalities in a big car and you’ve got a family vacation car ride to remember. I saw it had a DVD player so I grabbed my favorite movies Pineapple Express and Knocked Up from my house and that kept everyone quiet for a while but man, was this car like a dream! It came filled with gas and when we got to Orlando it was just about half full still! The touch screen in the middle console was BOMB, with satellite radio available, and GPS it was just too easy to keep me busy and play around with for a hour on the road.

The ride was super sooth especially for a road trip, it felt like we were on a couch on wheels. It has tons of crazy features I’ve never even seen before like it alerts you via a small shake on your butt when another car gets too close or if your about to skim a wall. It also has wireless charging pad for your cellphone which is AWESOME (new technology rules)! It has two screens in the back so everyone watching the DVD can see per row plus wireless headphones. It had a power outlet charger so my friends were working on their computers while charging up and USB plugs too! Oh man, it also had separate A/C controls for passenger side, driver side, and the back rows?! I mean, I’ve been driving a 2003 Ford Focus so this thing was like new technology to me haha.

The sound was amazing because it was a BOSE sound system, of course. As we rode back we heard the whole The Carter II and Urban Legend albums and that thang was BUMPIN’.

Honestly, I didn’t want to give it back! But all good things eventually come to an end. But not before I took a few pictures to remember the good times!

Definitely super impressed by Chevrolet and now they’ve got me wanting to buy an Impala. Not even joking. Definitely would recommend renting one of these bad boys if your going on a road trip or have a big family, it’s perfect!

BIG thanks to Team Epiphany and Chevy for the ride!

Norma Now for Shoe Gallery #2

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

Shady, gloomy day in Miami? Perfect backdrop for this Nike Sunset Womens Poncho ($150) paired with these cute Rosche’s and my Mission I’Mpossible leggings, I was ready to get some training in on this not-so sunny day.

I love my neighborhood in Bal Harbour because it makes for a perfect backdrop for running, driving, or just talking my dog for a walk. Living in Miami sure has its perks – just look at that ocean view!

As always, should out to my favorite photo G, Katherine Rosario from KSOCIAL.TV.
