Miami Beach – Part II

May 12, 2015

This past weekend was my second weekend this year spent in Miami Beach. It is the perfect weekend break – especially for a beach bum like me.

My two friends (Lorna & Erika) and I left New York on Friday straight after work. Making sure we made it to Miami in time to meet our friend Lanlih for some Friday night drinks. Our first stop was STORY nightclub on South Beach, followed by some much UNneeded food at 5am in the Big Pink!

Our hotel was located in the Art Deco district – an area with lots of retro buildings, pretty cars and palm trees lining the streets. You literally feel like you’ve walked on to the set of a sixties movie. It’s such a nice area to walk around, even in 32 degree Celsius (90 degrees Fahrenheit) temperatures.

As you can imagine – the majority of Saturday and Sunday was spent on the beach. It was our first taste of summer and it was HOT! The suncream has made its first appearance of 2015!

Miami beach as some of the nicest (and most expensive) hotels in the world. There’s nothing I love more than a nice hotel. On Saturday night we got the chance to try out two new really cool bars in these hotels. First we went to the Thompson for some cocktails, then on to the Edition. The Edition was especially nice – the decor was so beautiful and the nightclub downstairs had a bowling alley AND an ice rink (how that’s safe I don’t know but I’m sold!)

It was such a relaxing, fun weekend – I’m looking forward to another roadtrip in 2 weeks time for memorial weekend.

In the meantime I’ll be travelling to Philadelphia & New Jersey this week for work – follow me on snapchat (lou1409) for lots of updates on my travels!

This past weekend, was a much anticipated one as I head to Miami Beach with three of the girls, Erika, Lorna & Lanlih, for some much needed beach time.

I am definitely a summer baby, and after the long cold winter in NYC I have definitely considered moving somewhere a bit warmer for a while. I would love LA, or any of the beachy towns in California – it’s definitely on my bucket list.

This is what I wore to the airport and arriving in Miami. Not exactly airplane attire but as you can tell I’m excited to finally be able to break out the summer wardrobe.This was my second trip to Miami this year. I’m all for exploring different places – but I just couldn’t say no when the option came up to go again. It is such an easy weekend getaway from New York. A short three hour flight and the fact that there is no time difference is  a major plus. It meant we could go after work on Friday and come back on Sunday night in time for work on Monday. A holiday without using holiday days!

Miami has it all! The Art Deco area is so retro and pretty, the sand is white, the sea is aqua blue, the nightlife is the best ever, not to mention all the palm trees (my favourite). If you have me on snapchat (lou1409), you know how snap happy I was. Also head over to my travel page for a quick chat about the trip and what we got up to.

Lots more updates to come from the weekend.. stay tuned!
