Española Way

I always love how each major city has their own little foreign pockets. Take, for example, Little Italy in New York or China Town in San Fransisco. And here in Miami Beach, we have Española Way. Our little Spanish quarter in the middle of the hustle and bustle.

With the amazing Spanish restaurants, foreign music and Spain’s architecture, it’s like we took a trip back to Spain.

Española Way is definitely one of my favorite little spots in Miami Beach, and a great place to visit if you’re ever this way! Or if you’re just looking for a delicious Nutella filled croissant.

Itsy Bitsy Yellow Bikini

Found my new favorite bikini color, yellow! Absolutely in love with the fit of this bikini. It can sometimes be a bit of a risk to get bikinis from a company who doesn’t specialize in bikinis. But I’m absolutely thrilled with this one from Romwe and will definitely be purchasing more and saving a lot.

I’m also loving their retro styled sweaters, it may still be blazing hot here in Miami, but it’s never too early to stock up on some cute sweaters.

Body suits are totally in! And I am in love with this one piece from Forever 21. The perfect staple for your summer wardrobe. Bodysuits are not only a swimwear fashion statement, but you can throw on a pair of shorts, jeans or skirt and make it an appropriate outfit for daytime.

You literally can’t go wrong! Don’t forget to follow my social media @aroonmelane to keep updated on all I get up to in South Beach Miami. ❤

A Foodies Paradise

Living in Miami, Florida, I am constantly surrounded by amazing food. So I thought it would only be fair to share the amazing foods I find.

I decided to start out this new foodie series with a few places that will be first on my list to try. You’ll probably notice most of the restaurants I’ll be testing out are relatively healthy, because I try to maintain a mostly plant based diet, besides the occasional treat here and there.

Plant Theory
744 6th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139

A botanical, vegan cafe with an amazing raw food selection!

Jugo Fresh
1935 West Ave #102, Miami Beach, FL 33139

I’d imagine you could get almost any sort of detox juice and smoothie you could imagine. But I am particularly dying to try one of their bowls.

Jucy Lu
2621 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127

Another eatery for the health conscious eater. Particularly looking forward to their Let-Us-Wrap and veggie soup.

Maoz Vegetarian
1657 Washington Ave Miami Beach, FL 33139

If only to try their falafel! This “chipotle styled” restaurant is definitely bringing back some memories from one of my favorite falafel places, Hubbly Bubbly,in my other home town, Winter Park.

Sugar Factory
Hotel Victor, 1144 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33139

So this place will definitely have to be saved for a time when I am really feeling like splurging. All of this healthy food will be out the window after I indulge in one of Sugar Factory’s gorgeous milkshakes!

Can’t wait until it’s my turn to try all of these amazing places. Make sure to keep up with my instagram @aroonmelane to get a sneak peek at all of the amazing dishes I try!

I was recently able to work with the amazing ladies behind Stealth Swimwear and try on a bunch of their new and upcoming suits. And let me tell you what, they are so cute and I could definitely see these being a hit for those girls who love being stylish and active in their swimwear. These suits will be launching on May 1st so get excited with this little sneak peek at the amazing new collection!

Stealth Swimwear is a relatively new brand which just opened the beginning of this year, 2016.

Summer is quickly approaching and I know I am always looking for new swimsuit sites, so I figured I would be one of the first to share this awesome swim brand with you and it’s definitely worth checking out!

Here are some of the awesome suits we were able to try on. So many of the people in this area were stopping us girls and asking where the suits were from! 🙂

I have made my snapchat public and plan on posting videos throughout my whole trip, showing just what it is like to live in Alaska, I may also vlog a bit on the trip to post on Youtube, for those who are not big into Snapchat.

That being said, I just wanted to remind you all of my social media links, in case you are interested in following along on my trip to Alaska! I will be leaving next weekend, the 2nd and will be gone for two weeks! So there will be plenty of video footage and I cant wait to share it all with you!

New Years Eve Outfit and Giveaway

New Years Eve Outfit and Giveaway

I can not believe it is almost 2015! From the end of November tiil the start of the new year is when everyone is rocking the sequins. It is the time of year when you can go all out, and why not start the new year with a bang!
Today I have found a few of my favorite looks for this new year, and they are all centered around a gorgeous gold Rolex men’s watch. I was recently introduced to a very neat company called Invaluable, a site where you can actually bid of an array of luxury items from pretty much all of the designers out there, including this gorgeous mens watch. And though this watch may be a mans watch, any confident lady could totally rock it!

Check out the end of this post for a New Year Giveaway!

One can never go wrong with an all black dress on New Years, the sequins are festive and the low neck line adds a lot of glam to the outfit. This would be a great outfit if you are going to a nice dinner with your significant other or maybe even a nice office party. Paired with some high black heels and the gold Rolex watch would finish off the look. (Shop here)

Yes everyone knows that black and gold are the go to colors for this time of year. But adding a pop of color is fun and will stand out against everyone else at the party! A great look for a night with friends or family. This would also look great with a big gold watch and some high gold heels.

If you are not into the super sparkley holiday outfits than this might be the one for you. You do not have to be sparkling to get all the attention in the room. This all white outfit is sure to be an eye catcher against all the black dresses this year, and this look can be used for any plans you have that night. Gold accessories are a must for this! (Shop here)

This is probably my favorite outfit of the bunch! The sheer black top adds a bit of sexiness to the outfit, but the long sleeves and pockets tone it down just the right amount. Pair this with the gold watch and some heels and you are ready for the night.


Now time for the giveaway!

I will be giving away these two cute prizes from zazzle.com, both designed by the lovely Megan Duncanson with MADart. What better way to start the New Year than with winning some cute new prizes. The large bag is perfect for travel or makeup and be sure to put in that cute photo from New years in the funky patterned picture frame!
