Miami

I got to visit Miami last week because my friend was down there with her family. It was a lot more humid than I had expected (I didn't even know Miami was known for its humidity) but I had a great time and got to work on my tan a little bit (which was kind of silly given that I haven't had a chance to show it off at all here on the east coast!)

Here are some photos from my trip:

Gorgeous South Beach:





Delicious adorable key lime pie from random beachside bar:

Random mannequin with enormous boobs (there's a surprising # of these in Miami!):


Stunning lobby at the Fontainebleau hotel:


Spa at the Fontainebleau - "Lapis" -


My friend and I got "September specials" which were 50 minute massages for $99. I got the Swedish Rubdown and she got the Hot Stone. I was really happy with my experience with my masseuse Parker - I would highly recommend her to anybody interested in checking out the Lapis Spa! She was so professional and the entire experience was lovely. Also, the $99 gets you access to all of the spa amenities (which are gorgeous) and the pool!

Here are some photos poolside at the hotel:




Delectable looking pastries at the Solo coffeeshop in the hotel (I didn't have any because I was trying to be good!):


Cute little jars of honey the spa has out for your tea:


Overall, I really enjoyed my trip to Miami - it has a very different beachy vibe from LA and the water is bluer - I would love to return sometime!

The hotel is so chic looking! I've only been to Miami once. Hope you were able to get some good Cuban food when you were there! =)
