As someone who’s lucky enough to live just a few blocks from the South Beach Sephora, I usually don’t venture far for my beauty needs. But the opening of Sephora’s flagship at Aventura Mall piqued the reporter in me. I decided to make the schlep, as well as check in at a favorite haunt, Saks Fifth Avenue at Bal Harbour Shops.
I rarely visit Aventura Mall and you’ll soon understand why. Depending on the time of day, construction and general South Florida I-95 snafus, the drive there could take anywhere from 45 minutes to half my adult life. That a bus with an ad for Aventura, which have been showing up all over the place lately, rode tandem seemed like a good sign. Fast-forward risking life and limb to change lanes for the center’s narrow entrance off Biscayne Boulevard and three near accidents in the parking lot, and I had arrived, frazzled yet determined.
