Party in the city when the heat is on, all night on the beach till the break of dawn. Tell me I just got that song stuck in your head like it is in mine now. It’s no secret, I love Miami. What’s not to love? Sun, culture, food, SUN. It’s the perfect flight from Chicago and you’re on the beach by lunchtime. Here is a list of my favorite spots right now:
Located in the heart of the Design District, Swan is a delicious place where I find myself ordering the cheese pizza over and over again. Is it known for it’s cheese pizza? No. Do I order it because it’s good despite the fact I’m not 8? yes. It’s a beautiful atmosphere, fun people watching and mingling and it has delicious adult food other than cheese pizza. But seriously try the cheese pizza. (photo source)
The cast of character’s that attends this bar on any given night is Reality TV show worthy. If you’re into good cocktails and even better people watching this place is for you! I’ve never had a dull night at this spot. Last time I was there I met Harry from Real Housewives of New York. You know the one who was married to Aviva and then dated Ramona and Sonja? See? I told you! (photo source)
Ice cream with a selection of cereals is what makes this place so unique. I took my kids here no less than 10 times the last time we were in town. And we were only in town for 7 days. It’s so delicious and the serving size is big enough for you to be just find on ” bites” from your little ones. My favorite is the Bam Bam! (photo source)
Three words ; Mr. Chow Noodles. I don’t know what’s on them or why they are so good, but listen to me closely. Each child will need their own order. Is this a place for kids? Not really. But I’m not one to adhere to social standards. I like to eat well and I have kids. Hence I bring my kids. If you go earl enough it shan’t be a problem. (photo source)

Girlfriend Gift Guide coming in hot! This year my girlfriend’s helped me through so I can’t wait to return the love through a thoughtful gift. I came up with mix up cute and thoughtful gifts that you can feel good about giving depending on her personality. All of these gifts are unique and very affordable options for those special babes in your life.
I love a good catch all tray. I keep one in almost every room to put keys, coins and little nick knacks I might otherwise loose. This one is so cute. I’ve had this exact one on my nightstand for years.
This flask is so gorgeous I’m pretty sure I would just use it for decoration, yet in the off chance I needed to take it somewhere ( like every weekend to a kids birthday party) how chic would that be?!
Happy Thanksgiving friends! It’s sale time! I’m sitting here with my family by the fire, drinking coffee and looking at all the great sales. There are a lot of retailers that are doing 50% for Thanksgiving and Black Friday and personally I’m excited to shop for things that aren’t full price. I’m normally too impatient to wait for sales but this year there are some deals that I just can’t pass up.
