My hair is something I was blessed with. I was always told by hair dressers that my hair was great yet at one point in my life, while on a photo shoot; my hair was damaged and burned. It took a while for me to get it to grow back which is why at this point in my life, I only allow one person to highlight my hair – she is a well known hair color specialist in Coral Gables. Her name is Ada and the name of her place is Giralda's Hair Studio 176 Giralda Ave, Coral Gables, FL 33134. I recommend her without hesitation. Not only is she a master at her vocation but her energy is beyond amazing! She came into my life for a reason!
This wraps up my blog, I leave you with a great quote and wishing you a greater week! Hugs from the bottom of my soul!!!!!!!!!!!
We are trained to fear, resist, and fixate upon external enemies and to see ourselves as our most faithful and loyal friend. This is an inversion—most people never experience an external enemy that even begins to match the power of the opponent within. Although you may not know it, one of the greatest blessings that you can experience is a single moment of your life in which you are not your own worst enemy. -Paul Richards
I like your views on love and it being the unifying factor between you and your cast mates... it is, in fact, the only thing that unites us all... And it is funny how all of us struggle thinking love is something external when in fact it must come from within.
Thank you for the inspiration. Loving the show, loving your insights.
Take care! D
Katrina, LOVE THE SHOW!!! I have lived in Coral Springs Florida for 38 years and very happy to finally have a show about Miami. All of you are perfect for the show. Keep up the fantastic work you all do. Hopefully I will run into one of you in south beach.
Thanks for the beauty tips, Katrina. Sorry that you didn't make it to the Operation Smile event Hardy & Trixia put together. It was probably the most genuine part of the season.
Hey Katrina! I love your makeup vid!! Could you do a 'face' video on your face makeup? What products do you use?? That would be super super super helpful! Thanks girly! ps.I love your twitter pic! :)
Love the show. Girl u were amazing, keep it up!!!A professional beautiful woman!!!You go girl!!! Love the first season!!!
You are a workaholic but, you are bright, sexy, intelligent, sexy, powerful. Love that your into you work but, do find time to be this beautiful woman. You are lovely and very good at what you do but, don't let it become you. Take if from a man that knows. Running two businesses at my age (46), but young at heart does not make you happy. Find that partner that will make you the true superstar that you are.
it sooo refreshing to see a woman like katrina on t.v. livin an amazing life!!! I somewhat look up to her... In fact, I strive to live her lifestyle!!! thanks for bein such a positive character and bright soul!!!muaaah!!!
Your so much fun to watch. I love your attitude. Your so Miami Chic. What's up with your mom? When is she going to get over the fact that your a singel woman. It's like every time the camars are on she has to metion your ex-husband. I guess it's a latin thing. Keep up the fabulosity. . . .
Katrina, love your style...Your definetly a hot little ticket! Smart, beautiful, sassy, and succesful......However, there is more to life than working so much. I get it, I understand your position. Im a new mom, went to a Ivy League school while working 2 jobs, had a succesful 10 year career but can honestly say there nothing is more refreshing and satisfying in life than bringing up one of your biggest accomplishments...your child.......
Take a vacation for yourself after the season and enjoy life....
Hi, Katrina thank you for all the tips on makeup and your hair, you are a beatiful woman, love the show, I wish the best to all of you.
PLEASE get back with Ben! He is your soulmate...I can just tell! BTW- you guys would have unbelievably cute babies! : )
I really admire your drive and ambition. I'm just wondering if there's anything more...you seem to be all about business...not love...passion...or devotion to anything except work. I know everyone is different and that may be what "floats your boat" but...I guess I just feel for you when you're at the end of your life...what are you gonna have?? Ben will most likely have moved on...have a wife...kids...and you'll have what? A house? You seem like a good person...you just seem to be missing something...vulnerability maybe? I don't know...just sharing my thoughts and I don't mean this to be mean in anyway...
Hi Katrina, You are so gorgeous! I admire your strength as a career oriented, successful, woman "Bravo" to you! I have a lot of girl"friend's" (of course I do, I'm gay-haha), and they are all strong, just like my mom. It's always harder for the stronger ones to find love, but it's out there and we will attract the right one. Speaking of the right one, and I just sent a message on his blog, Michael is adorable-I love his personality and I relate to yours and his relationship! It's fun watching the two of you interract. I need to visit Miami, and those homes-so beautiful! I appreciate architecture, and the real estate business. Looking forward to the finale and next season!
Katrina, I love you on the show but so sad about your divorce to Ben. I dont exactly know all the details of your break up but he seems like he is the man for you! Do you know how hard it is to find a man that your parents LOVE!? Hopefully you guys will work things out, could you really stomach to see Ben happy with another woman?
Your my favorite on the show.. beautiful business woman and all!! I live in ohio and long for the life of a busy career woman.. I got married 2 years ago and have 3 stepsons now.. I feel im not allowed to live my life ..so here I sit and watch reality TV!! and DREAM!!
Hope life treats you right!
Katrina Katrina Katrina............you are the best on the show!! My friends and I love you. NOW......about these bracelets.....will you have some for men as well......the gay boys in Chicago love you.
Katrina, Its nice to see a woman who doesnt need a man to be happy! You go girl! Im sure since you and Ben were together a long time and it will be hard to separate yourself from that. But you really dont need to have a relationship to be complete. I think that is something that George really needs to do. He is a total mess. He seriously needs to look into getting into therapy and being without someone until he gets himself straight. He obviously is still in love with sorraha but cant handle it. So instead he is this relationship where the two of them are both a mess. I think Lena actually has some valid points for being upset (ie going out with other woman and not coming home, drinking excessivly) but she also needs to get a grip. I think she could benefit from taking something like Paxil or something to calm her down. Then I think she also needs therapy!!! But I really got into the show and seeing how Miami and the elite get to live. And thank you on the link for your makeup look. Love it! Cant wait for next season. Oh, by the way, since Hardy isnt blogging, can you tell me what kind of dog him and his girlfriend has? Its so dang cute!!! I want one!!
Katrina, how can I say anything bad about you? You're the real deal, girlfriend. You're like a girls best friend and a guys dream. It's hard for me to say that it but, it seems as if Ben is looking more forward to the divorce than you are (I'm always leary about what the camera portrays). My advice to you is to remove the pride (shield) and go get your husband. I lived in Miami for over 30 years and I can tell you that Ben is going to soon regret his decision to get a divorce. The women (a large majority) in Miami are abosolutely gorgeous BUT, they are vain and looking for the right sugar-daddy to come along and take care of them. If Ben allows the marriage to end, he will spend the rest of his life regretting it and searching for another YOU! One more thing... What is so amazing about you is, as beautiful as you are, you never come across as being the least bit conceeded, stuck up or arrogant. "Ben, wake up before it's too late".
Hi Katrina I really didn't like that comment Ben made about you getting your stuff out but he must be a good guy if you picked him that long ago. Since you love makeup so much have you tried the new Illamasqua line from the UK? It's fabulous. I'll be checking out your website but the last time I checked "vibrating bracelets" were just co*k rings,lol.
I watched the show last week and I love the black dress you were wearing with the ruffles around the bottom. Where did you get that? All of the clothes you are wearing are beautiful. It is great to see that women can be as successful as men. Don't let anyone push into dating until your heart is ready to do so.
Take care.... D
Don't let anyone including your friends pressure you into dating if you choose not to. In this week's episode when Michael and Maria took you out dancing, I didn't like how they were scoping out dates for you and bringing strangers over to your table. There's nothing wrong being single and focusing on work.
This is kind of off-topic.... But WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR BRACELETS?!?!?!?! I am obsessed with your chunky, numerous bracelets you always have on, and I am wondering what designer and/or where you got them?!?! You always look so hot, I love your style.
Why is everyone trying to fix you up? Enjoy it for gods sake, be with out a mate for a while, enjoy life and find a mate later you have had one since high school. Only you know whats good for you and only you know if you have made a mistake.I really enjoy watching you on show and hope you have had fun on the show...Good Luck and have fun with your friends.
Katrina, I like all of you guys on the show. Its a really fun time to watch all of you and your lives. Its a good show!
Katrina, wonder why all the women in Miami have a different English accent then the women in North Miami Beach. I grew up in South Beach in the 70's and I never heard this accent back then. Great show and it is nice to have show about Miami and show how beautiful and Fabulous it is here!
Katerina - I love you and identify with you. For 24 years I was a work a holic - time for re-evaluation -
What makes you happy not what make you feel needed- but what energizes you???
What feeds your creative juices???? interaction from ther creative individuals, or creative time spent along to reflect? I have always wanted a creative life but I joined the military adn the lessons learned werer great - project management, execution, negotiation, but the "creative" piece inside I squashed into a box and ruled with responsibility ad duty....
let them out, be free, I LOVE THE ENERGY YOU LET LOOSE.
I would love to meet you for at least a beer sometime!!! Schenectacy is the first place I have lived as an off military duty place (not my forever pllace). I respect you and your choices and would like to hang out with the group you hang out with.
LOVE THE SHOW!!!!
Props to you girl..you have your act together!!! What is the secret? Good luck to you and keep up with all your strength and beauty!!
My favorite character on the show is KATRINA, i think she is a very beautiful and successful woman...n i wish her luck in finding the true LOVE of her life. I think that Katrina is the ideal woman (gorgeous, super confident, her own bo$$, and very intellectual) If i were a man, i would want to marry Katrina...keep up the good work!!!
Katrina, I have a lot in common with you. I am about the same age as you, we have the same goals in live. I know you say the divorce is no big deal. I feel that you are putting on a brave front but you have to be scared? I have been married for 19 years 8/22/09, we have been together almost 22 years. I thought he was the one, my true love the one I would die with out. I believe this for many years, I also loved work it was nothing to work 60 plus hours a week. Then one day I found the love of my life, a love that makes your soul sing. His name is Allen and he is my eight year old son, I never knew what true love was til I met my son. I almost missed it, you see I had cervical Cancer. If not for getting pregant I would be dead, we tried for 12 years to get pregant 3 miscarriages and we gave up.Now we have the greatest love of all time. I agree you know what is best for you, but dont close all doors because one day you will have to retire, having children and grandchildren isnt a bad ideal. Work is great but life is not meant to work and not enjoy life. Good luck.
caught him messing around on me for the fourth, five time, I lost count. I was so young when we got together I knew nothing else, I was scared so I settled.
I do not know why some people think a woman has to have a man to be complete. I think you should take your time and enjoy being single. You might actually like it! YOu are your own woman and I admire you for that. I always taught my daughters to make sure they can take care of themselves. I never want them to be stuck in a relationship because they need that person to take care of them. I told them work hard and do what they enjoy doing. It seems you are in that stage of your life and I say Go For It. Heck I think its cool to be able to date when you feel like it and not have to put up with whomever. I mean you can say C YA! Don't call me.... I'll call you! :-)
Love the braclets too! You need to send me a case of those crystals, need to refresh the positive power!
Your doing a great job on the show! I'm very proud of you !!!!
It's obvious you are a survivor Katrina. I have also noticed the similarities between Lina and Ben in the "I want your attention please!" department relative to their relationships with George and yourself respectively. Unless you can learn how to authentically trust others and subsequently develop authentic emotional intimacy in your primary love relationship...you're going to be pretty much "stuck" living the life of a single woman. And maybe you want that deep down (?) I don't know. Good luck to you anyway.
Hiiiiii!♥ I just wanted to say that you are very inspiring and i love watching you on the show! I used to be very independent before i got into a relationship with this guy i totally thought completed me, um it's hard trying to gain that strive of knowing that I can overcoming anything in life.. I can say watching the show and being exposed to the type of person you are reminds me of what I once wanted and still do want to be known as (the independent successful single lady who knows what she wants). Do you have any suggestions of how I can salvage being that determined lady.
You are totally fab! I love your style (especially the bracelets) and I admire your strength & confidence. You're truly an inspiration!
You are a wonderful person. I wish you would go back with your husband. He is such a wonderful guy and you two make such a lovely couple. The grass is NOT greener on the other side. You were with him for 13 yrs. Go back with him and work on the history you have together. You can make things MUCH better as it seems you can both talk things out. GOOD LUCK
Katrina, keep doing what makes you happy - be true to yourself. I enjoy seeing a single young lady being successful and happy.
Katrine I would like to tell you that you are fab and your friends are beautiful especially Micheal!!!!! Love the show
I have been a supporter since back in the Apprentice days! You are such a strong and independant woman I truly look up to you. However there is one aspect that concerns me regarding your situation with Ben. I can understand your need to be dedicated to your work, but what do you really want out of life... money?? Thats all that you would accomplish by working so hard. But what about working on your personal life? Do you really not see yourself as a wife or a mother in the future? It seems like you could have treated Ben with more respect and taken care of him too. You are so smart and business savy.. theres just no possible way you could balance your love too? It sad to see such a sweet and GORGEOUS man go to waste. You should definitely re evaluate your priorities. sad sad sad
Katerina...you are amazing...and im sure a lot of women relate to you and your struggles with the whole love and work balancing act. Its nice to see a girl on a reality show working for her money...and not depending on a man for total support...you're awesome!
I've been watching the show for awhile and I really wonder how you deal with the drama. It's all relationship drama, never business. Granted the show only shows one side of you, so when does the world see the other?
Of course your eye candy, but please, lets see who Katrina really is.
In episode 2 when you and Michael are at the dog park, you are wearing a black t shirt that I adore. I would like to know what kind it is and where you purchased it...if you don't mind sharing that info with me. Usually I can find something like this on my own but I have looked all over the net for that shirt and can't find it anywhere. Thx for your time, btw I'm a big fan.
