Weekend Recap #6

The past weekends have been a little chaotic, but I managed to meet my best friend for coffee at a new favorite spot (I'll share it next week), saw some pretty flowers and ate my weight in pastries all week long. Not sorry!
I've been battling a nasty cold, I think it's a way my body is telling me to slow down and get some me time. Will do just that.
Have a good start of the week!

I'll be at the beach if you need me.
Wishing you a lazy weekend.

Miami Beach through my lens: December

For the last installment of Miami Beach through my lens, I decided to feature my favorite place in Miami Beach: the beach, of course!
It's such a luxury (and a blessing) to live right by the beach. Whether it's a walk by the beach early in the morning or at sunset, or spending the day lounging in the sand, or a bike ride by the boardwalk, over-viewing the ocean, I find that going to the beach (and taking a dip in its warm waters), it's restorative and relaxing.

My favorite spot is between 1st and 3rd St, right by South Pointe Park. I love that it's almost always empty, it feels very secluded and private.


I've said this many times, but I can't believe another year went by. I showed you my favorite places in Miami Beach, but there are many other places I've discovered and fell in love lately. I'll keep sharing my finds with you.

This project has been an ode to my city. I truly love living here and I'm excited about discovering the Magic City. Stay tuned!

To see the whole Miami Beach through my lens project: go here.

Miami Beach through my lens is a photographic quest to discover the great city of Miami Beach.
Starting January 2014, I will explore a new place every month throughout the year, and share my findings with you. Armed with my trusty camera, I aim to get to know this wonderful city better, and improve my photography skills as I go. Tag along!

Weekend Recap #5

I can't believe Christmas is this week! This past weekend, I tried to finish my shopping, but I still have to gift-wrap one last present, buy liqueur for Christmas dinner and figure out what I'm going to wear. I didn't have time to do anything else, except one quick bike ride through South Pointe neighborhood, but it relaxed me and left ready to start with the celebrations!

Are you ready for Christmas?

Weekend Recap #4

There's a really festive vibe now in South beach with all the holiday lights on the streets. It's exciting! I have yet to do my Christmas shopping (hopping to cross that off my to do list this week). I've been busy with work, but I made time for my favorite smoothie breakfast and a late night walk through Espanola Way (my favorite street in SoBe).

P.S. Aren't the palm trees all decked out in lights soooo charming?
