About Evelyn Torres and the Blog


Hi, I’m Evelyn!

The Creative Director behind Brickellista, a lifestyle brand that encompasses business, fashion, travel, health and fitness.

“Brickellista Files is a place where I share my love of Miami, business tips, fashion, and my travels.”


Brickellista New Year's Eve

Brickellista started as my Twitter alias in August 2009 with the purpose of connecting with the hottest events and best restaurants. I was new to Miami & wanted a way to connect without putting myself “out there.” I’m actually an introvert if you can believe that?!

I left corporate America in 2017 to pursue my passion for blogging.

In my prior career, I was a marketing ninja at a global firm. I went to business school and focused on expansion strategies into emerging economies – I’m kind of an economics geek!

The Brickellista name is Trademarked and in 2016 I licensed it to Florida East Coast Realty for the advertising campaign for Panorama, the tallest building outside of Manhattan! It was awesome to see my name on billboards, magazines and bus stations!

I love working with brands and ensuring their brand strategies are aligned with their target audience.

This blog is where I share my adventures, products I am passionate about, and travels that inspire me.


WHAT IS BRICKELL?

brik-əl – the financial district of Miami’s Downtown area. I like to think of it as a tanner sexier version of the Upper East Side.


EVERYDAY I NEED

Coffee, a green juice, the gym, and music


FAVORITE THINGS TO DO

Bring ideas to life, catch up with friends, and writing.


CAN’T STANDS
