If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to step into a real life Alice in Wonderland rabbit hole, La Muse Cafe is the place for you. It’s a combination of Avant Art Gallery and a gorgeous, whimsical cafe, located in the Epic Hotel in Downtown Miami.
Not only is the atmosphere a fairytale, but the food is incredible and way better than your typical American style cafe.

You guys, I think I’ve found my new favorite restaurant! Chotto Matte, off Lincoln Road Mall in South Beach. It’s a little hidden and off the main path, but once I stepped inside it was like walking into a whole different area. The design and decor inside is stunning, and the food was even better! If you’re into exotic cocktails and a contemporary sushi experience, Chotto Matte is right up your ally. I dined on their vegetarian bento box and the food it was phenomenal, already planning my next reservation asap!

I’m dying over this top from Ralph Lauren! It’s the perfect piece to dress up for a fancy night out, or to throw on some cute shorts and spend the day brunching it with your girls.
And I think I’ve found another favorite brunch spot, located in South Beach! If you’re looking for an authentic Italian bakery, where everyone is from Italy, then Sciuri Bakery is the place for you! They had the most amazing selection of baked goods, cakes, cookies, fudge, you name it! I don’t think I’ve ever had a cannoli so good! And they even have delicious lunch options like lasagna, pizza and, my favorite, the arancini! If this doesn’t sound good already, they even offered vegetarian options! I’ve definitely stumbled across a gem in South Beach!

We are all familiar with the “Free the Nip” movement, but some may not be quite as “free,” as Kendall Jenner or Bella Hadid. So there are some other ways to embrace the movement, without feeling to exposed. And this Zara top is the perfect way! It’s girly, floral and pink, what girl would not love it!?

One of the great things about being a blogger in Florida, is the ability to post both fall and summer looks year round! And yes, you will probably find that I do often use this to my advantage. Guiltyyy!
Either way, who could resist such a cute matching set, like this one from SheIn!
I would personally style this piece with a bikini underneath, as a day beach cover up. But who’s to say this would not also be perfect for a hot day exploring the town, or a fun little get together with the girls, for brunch.
And every cute look is never complete without a simple accessory to go with it. It feels like marble has been a huge hit since I can remember, but I am not complaining. These adorable, marble, tasseled earrings, from Freshy Fig, go perfectly with any look!

I’m always looking for new, boutique swim and clothing brands. Because no one wants to show up at the beach wearing the same bikini as every other girl.
This summer I’m definitely keeping my eye on Mademoiselle Louise Deisgns, a French swim and lingerie designer in Miami Beach.

Whats your favorite?
Today’s post was inspired by the incredibly hot, hundred degree weather we are experiencing in South Beach.
Summer is just around the corner and it’s always nice to get prepared ahead of time. So I’ve linked some of my favorite summer products to keep you glowy this season! As well as some of my favorite summer tips.
My absolutely favorite product for glowy skin is bio oil! You can use it all over your body as well as your face, to give your skin that extra boost and moisture it craves.
I’ve also made up my own concoction of body oil. Inside i mixed coconut oil // vitamin e oil // green tea tree oil // rose hip oil // bio oil. I use this little concoction before bedtime to allow my skin to absorb all of the amazing vitamins and nutrients!
SPF! SPF! SPF! I’ve always used SPF on my face because I was always told that you needed too. But recently I’ve realized just how important it is. That being said, I’ll never go a day without SPF on my face. If I do miss a day, I’ll notice a complete difference in my skin and pigmentation. My favorite is Dermalogica SPF 50.
Join a gym that has a variety of class, to allow you to mix up your routine and stay motivated! I recently joined my local Equinox gym, and I’m absolutely obsessed! Gotta get summer beach body ready, am I right?!
Drink lots of water! I try to drink at least a gallon a day, and I notice a huge difference from drinking lots of water. Benefits I’ve experienced are, flatter tummy, healthy skin, energy and appetite control. I mean, our bodies are mostly made of water, so shouldn’t we try to drink lots of it? 😛

I had the pleasure of dining, with some fellow influencers from South Beach, at a charming and health conscious café called Dr Smood; along with our own personal nutritionist who walked us through some of their most popular menu items. That being said, I only thought it fair to share some of my favorite health tips that were mentioned during the luncheon!
First off, can we just admire the décor and interior of Dr Smood? It is definitely the perfect place to come for a healthy meal and chill out. This was the Wynwood, Miami location.
- Drinking lots of water is amazing for your body, but you should always try to drink Alkaline water as much as you can. Our nutritionist used a great example to explain the different between regular water and alkaline water. (So you have a shower, and it is constantly getting rinsed off whenever you are inside. But you still have to go in and clean your shower every now and then, even though its continuously getting rinsed. The same applies to your body, drinking water is good to help clean out your system, but drink alkaline water allows your body to flush out all the bad toxins.)
- We all know moderation is key, and sometimes its hard to avoid that sweet treat. Don’t feel bad for indulging, just know how to treat your body after a cheat meal. For example, if you eat a yummy glazed doughnut, try to help your body digest the treat faster, by drinking a lot of water and liquids.
- Chaga, is a great alternative to coffee, it gives you all the energy and helps your body to metabolism, but it is even better for you!
- There is a difference between cacao, cocoa and chocolate. An item can not be labeled as cacao unless it is unadultured, raw cacao from the cacao tree. Chocolate on the other hand has been manipulated and has added ingredients that may not be as healthy. And cocoa is just a fancy way to say chocolate and can sometimes confuse people on whether its raw, healthy chocolate, or sugary refined chocolate.
My favorite item would have to be the Cold Pressed Vegan Mylk, Non-Dairy Chocolate Mylk. Tastes better than regular chocolate milk, but its full of healthy ingredients like brazil nut mylk, dates, cacao nibs, cacao powder, cinnamon and vanilla! Yumm
Cheers to the weekend and keeping out bodies healthy and happy!
