Art Deco & Pink Cadillacs

Friends,

As promised here are some fabulous pictures of Miami. While there are only a few…they are the ones that made MIAMI an experience of a lifetime. I just have to mention that I bought a bad of almonds from the Airport...and well....AFTER i was on the plane, I noticed that they tasted stale..Not cool. 
The view from my room however, was to die for...the beach just steps away!
I honestly can't remember feeling heat like I have in Miami….then again Dubai seems similar! The heat was just thick…that's the best way to describe the humidity and the scorching days in South Beach.

I have to say I loved it. Every minute of heat and warmth. With my huge water bottle by my side, I ventured to all of the touristy places in SoBe…I have to say I loved how the hotels were considered heritage buildings and almost every single one had an Art Deco feel. I visited Every hotel on the strip not because I am crazy but because a friend is getting married there in the Fall and we were looking for the perfect venue for her wedding and reception. I think we found them!

In addition to the Art Deco, you automatically feel transported back to the 80s. For example... This Pink Cadillac was a staple on Collins Avenue where I took many walks.


Food however was not so great. In fact I was a bit disappointed. I did manage to eat at a few Cuban restaurants but I wasn’t "wowed". I also had a hard time with portion sizes. For example. This Salad was the size of my HEAD. I kid you not. I could barely get through half…and I left the bread…minus a bite here or two.


I also fell in love with many many many pairs of shoes that were on sale...Cant wait to who you which ones I actually bought!


I wont bore you with too many pictures but I am so glad this is where I ended up post competition. I took many amazing walks, ran on the beach and enjoyed the heat.

Have you been to Miami? Any places you suggest going? I plan on taking a trip again!

  1. Miami sounds like fun!  Love the pink car :)  Go to Hawaii!  NOTHING will disappoint you...except maybe the cost.  But SO worth it!  I wanna go to Dubai so bad!

  2. I love almonds (generally eat them daily), too bad  they were a bit stale. I'd love to spend time in Dubai, instead of just being in the airport. Glad that you were able to find a great pair of shoes.   :)

  3. Amazing pics...I hate almonds haha..the taste just won´t work for me xD...The view from your room is gorgeous! Makes me want to dive in the sea (and I´m not even a very beachy person haha) I can´t wait to see what shoes you got...and well in answer to your question..the brunch was amazing I got to meet a lot of editors and stylists...I met a woman who is a personal stylist who was just a blast! I got to eat macaroons! (yeah you´ve probably heard me sometime say how I was so freaked I´ve never tasted them...and I love them!) The menu was delicious...though the dessert kinda caught me off guard...it said fruit tartlette...but it looked like a flan I dunno hahaha we were all laughing about it xD...I had a great great time!

    So jealous.  I want to be in Miami.  I still haven't gotten a vacation this year.  Lately I'm feeling totally exhausted.
