highlights of the week + back to a normal schedule

I've been meaning to post this for days! Sorry I haven't updated in a few weeks, but for some reason I've been busier than normal. My family went back to NJ and I'm slowly adjusting to my normal routine.

Here's a few things I loved these past few days: A delicious dinner in the prettiest patio at A la folie Cafe, one of those dreamy SoBe sunsets, and colorful stools at Bodega.

Hope everyone is having an awesome week!

highlights of the weekend + happy monday






Happy Monday! This last week has been wonderful! My family is visiting from NJ and we've been having a blast. A few moments that caught my eye: A fun bike ride through the alleys of South Beach, a trip in the trolley that make me feel like I was living in a different era, a breathtaking sunset that painted the sky all shades of pink and yummy baked treats at Crema.
Wishing you a wonderful week!

highlights of the week + happy friday




A few things that made me happy this past week: an excellent empanada and cortadito at La Provence in Coral Gables, the Miami skyline heading downtown, and live music at my current favorite hangout in SoBe: Bodega

I'm excited about the weekend! I'm planning on making crepes for breakfast and go on a bike ride.

Hope you have a great weekend!
xoxo, m.

Highlights of the week + happy 4th of July




I had a pretty fun week that included playing foosball, drinking beers and eating chicken wings at a Irish pub with friends. I've kept my promise and I've been cooking more at home. The whole cooking process is relaxing! I like to make experiments in the kitchen and the other day I made something I called a omeletadilla, which is an omelet inside a quesadilla, basically. I'm going to tweak the recipe a little bit and show some pictures. Such a good breakfast!

Wishing everybody a good 4th of July ! Any plans? I'm hoping to catch the fireworks at the beach. 

Xoxo, m.

highlights of the weekend + happy monday

Happy Monday! Last week, I took a field trip to Ft. Lauderdale. Here's a few of my favorite things from that day:


The beach! It was too hot to be outdoors, but next time I definitely want to go in the water.


Lunch at Louie Bossi, where we had one of the best pizzas of my life: wild mushrooms with parmiggiano reggiano + smoked mozarella di buffala + and truffle oil. It was insane.


Next time, I want to try this wine bar and cheese  house: Cheese Culture. It looked really good.

Hope you have a great week! It's been so hot here in Miami Beach, in the 90s with a feeling of 99F. Yikes.

highlights of the week





The past few weeks of going out, working long hours and not sleeping enough finally caught up with me and my body screamed for rest. I decided to take it easy this week, and I've been eating a lot of healthy home-cooked meals, like lentil soup and spinach and banana smoothies. I've also been taking naps which have proven to be miraculous.
In the pictures above, you can see my breakfast from the other day, a pretty bike I saw by my house, and the 11/11 parking lot on Lincoln Road at night. Isn't it something? I really love my city.

Enjoy the rest of the week, it's almost Friday!

places i love: under the mango tree

Today, I woke up feeling hungry and decided to go grab a late breakfast at a juice bar near my house: Under the Mango Tree. I've been meaning to check out this place after reading great reviews on Yelp, and gladly, it did not disappoint.

This juice bar is earth friendly, and besides juices and smoothies, they offer acai bowls, melts and coffee. It's very small, but they do have a seating area. I had a spicy kale melt, and a green juice, and both were excellent. I'm so happy I've found this place; I will definitely be a regular here.
