Sun rays in Miami!Published on April 08, 2015
Hi friends! I am Alyssa, beauxx.com Social Media Coordinator! I have been the one filling your Facebook and Instagram feeds with new arrival updates, blogger photos and all the other goodness beauxx.com has to offer. And now I'm here to talk about my recent trip to Miami! I'm not one to brag but this time I think I have bragging rights, I mean it is Miami we're talking about! So please, sit back, relax and enjoy the recap of my glorious trip (but seriously, the photos are the best part)!
Vacations are always a good way to clear the mind, replenish the soul and to be honest, just to escape for a few days! I've always been a big believer in that and seriously who doesn't love a good, sunny vacation? So that is exactly what I did a few weeks ago. I had this trip planned for a while so when that Friday morning came, I couldn't believe it. Miami here I come! I have family down in Homestead, FL about a 30-45 minute drive from downtown Miami (depending on traffic), so my first few days were spent with them, enjoying each others companying and talking about the old days.

While I was there, Ultra Music Festival was coming to an end, so naturally I had to attend. I have never been to a 'rave' before but I thought, "Hello! I'm in Miami and it's one of the greatest music festivals in the world so YES, COUNT ME IN!" Luckily my wonderful cousin was able to track down some last minute tickets for us, so off we went! We saw some very talented and well known DJs like Krewella, Knife Party, Nicky Romero and Steve Angello to name a few. It is definitely going on my list of fun things I have been lucky enough to do/attend this year. The music, the vibes, the food... it was all that I imagined and more!
Obviously visiting South Beach was a given. It was my time to relax and enjoy that beautiful Miami sun on my skin. It was a great Monday of people watching, sun bathing and the fresh Atlantic Ocean between my toes. I am really not one for the sand and heat but I was in Miami and the water was calling my name. It was just like I remembered and imagined it; colorful buildings, beautiful people, and palm trees like no other. And you best believe I made my way to the popular restaurant and bar Wet Willie's for a nice cold one and the famous Clevelander Hotel for a (few more) drinks!
My last day in this beautiful city, I had a nice brunch with my cousin Anna at Green Street Cafe in Coconut Grove. It was a perfect Tuesday to dress up, have a mimosa and indulge in some french toast, pancakes and bacon! We also decided to flaunt our gorgeous beauxx.com outfits because lets face it, our beauxx.com outfits were to die for! We looked the par walking the streets of Miami and they were screaming photo-shoot time! It was a well-worth extended weekend, but I am glad to be home and back to real life. So, until we meet again Miami, stay beautifully amazing!
