This past weekend I visited Miami for the first time for my bachelorette party/trip. During the day, we alternated laying out by the pool, and laying out on the beach (as implied by my lobster-colored complexion). In the evening, we headed to South Beach for dinner, mojitos, ice cream, sightseeing, and an impromptu photo shoot on the beach. What we didn’t know is that South Beach was also hosting a huge hiphop music festival this weekend. Needless to say, South Beach was so crowded that we cut our visit short and headed back to the hotel for late night snacks and girl-talk. It was a quick trip, but it was the perfect amount of time to get in some much needed R & R and catch up with good friends.


Can someone please tell me why hotels always have such chintzy carpet in their hallways?


Cleveland in Miami!


The biggest (and best!) mojito I’ve ever had. I love normal mojitos, but this one was made with pureed peaches and a splash of champagne. If you’re in South Beach, I highly recommend eating at the Cardozo Bar & Grill at the Cardozo Hotel South Beach– the food, drinks, waitstaff, and atmosphere were all outstanding! One of the locals told us an old Frank Sinatra movie was filmed there. This was definitely a highlight of the trip!


Skirt Steak Salad at Cardozo.  Probably one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten in my life. I would eat this every day if I could!
*Can anybody tell me what those little yellow things are? I think it was some kind of fruit, but I’m not sure. They were so tasty, and I want to get some at the grocery store, but I have no idea what they are!
EDIT: So I think y’all are right about it being mango. I always thought I hated mango, but I think I’ve just had ones that either weren’t ripe or were overripe. The one on this steak salad was perfect, so I apparently I really mango!
