A short while ago my friend, Anu, and her husband planned a trip to Miami, and I recently decided to join them on their trip with my husband. It’ll be nice to getaway and do a group vacation for a change. Since my trip is only a couple weeks away, my South Beach Diet, haha, officially starts today. For me this translates to… NO CUPCAKES, NO DESSERTS, NO SUGARS! If you know me, you know this ain’t no easy peasy task for me.
Let’s face it, Miami is a bit snooty when it comes to weight/image so there is a little pressure to tone up. During my time in South Beach, I look forward to meeting up with my blogger friend, Parita… let’s make it happen, P! I’m so excited to finally meet you! So if you are from the Miami area, or if you’ve ever visited, I would really appreciate tips on where to dine (Cuban, Latin, Mexican, Asian), what to see, where to lounge, and where to club. Please advise! Many thanks! ~ hoping to make happy memories!
2. Earth Balance Creamy Coconut & Peanut Butter Spread
Remember my cousin, Ajay, who is a bit of a coconut fanatic? Read here. I recently visited my cousin at his home and he had me try this delicious and decadent Coconut + Peanut Butter Spread by Earth Balance, and then I shamelessly grabbed a spoonful and enjoyed some with my tea. So freakin’ good. You can totally taste the coconut. Now I’m not a huge fan of Earth Balance products because I don’t agree with some of their choice of ingredients, but if you’re vegan, you don’t really have a choice. This particular product by Earth Balance is Non-GMO, 100% Natural, and only contains peanuts, organic virgin coconut oil, agave, palm fruit oil, and salt. That’s perfect. Nowadays this is my new morning spread on toast w/banana slices. ~ $6 @ Whole Foods
3. Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC (purchased in periwinkle)
A relatively affordable designer bag and my favorite crossbody by Rebecca Minkoff, and I just had to have it in periwinkle which is the color of this season. It’s such a versatile color that pairs well with jeans in blue, white, black, and more. This Mini MAC is just the right size which can hold my daily essentials for a day or night out. Additionally, the Mini MAC comes in an array of colors, but I love it most in periwinkle, white is really pretty too. ~ $195 @ Shopbop
TELL ME: Have you been to Miami? Please offer some advice/tips. Are you a fan of Earth Balance products?
