About a week ago I got invited to Minted Media’s fashion showcase benefiting the organization, Bright Pink.

A Nail bar sponsored by Mario Triccoci and a Vita Coco bar. There was also a menu that had only signature drinks for the event, all of the drinks had Vita Coco in them. (They were very tasty!)

Having not been on a vacation in who knows how long I decided that I needed one. After my Cousin invited me to Miami with her I had to take her up on the offer!


 All White Everything.

We booked everything thru Expedia and flew American Airlines there and United on the way back. Flight and booking was pretty okay, except I booked our flight to Fort Lauderdale instead of Miami Beach. Womp. Womp.



Our Hotel was a cute little boutique hotel in the heart of the Art Deco District on South Beach, the Winter Haven Hotel. 



The Hotel was super cute and vintage but not old. (I honestly was nervous it would be outdated but it wasn’t.) The Hotel greeted us with Champagne and it was such a nice touch.

The room we had was very small but it was very clean and neat and the bathroom was modern. Take a look at a glimpse of my trip faves! I will for sure be back to beautiful Miami! Have you been? Share your fave spots in the comments below!
