Good morning! I'm back in reality now, unfortunately, so today I'm sharing a recap of last week's spring break. We ate the best food, stayed at the best place, and had the best time! Thanks for reading! Come back later this week for a fun outfit post from my trip!

STK - We went to STK Thursday night right after we checked into our hotel. My camera was packed away in my suitcase so I didn't take any pictures, but we sat below the coolest neon pink sign that said, "Dare to Be." I ordered the "chopped brussel sprout salad" and it was delicious. They had a DJ playing old school jams - which also meant I got a music/culture lesson from my parents throughout the meal!

GreenLife Miami Dragon Bowl

GreenLife - For breakfast, I enjoyed a delicious dragon bowl. GreenLife is great because they have vegan options but they aren't entirely vegan for family members who don't follow that lifestyle. My bowl was a good size for the price and gave me plenty of energy to start off the day.

Clove Mediterranean Kitchen - I kept seeing greek style restaurants and before I knew it I was craving hummus and pita! I didn't choose Clove based on any reviews but because the outside was aesthetically pleasing and stood out (I know...I'm basic). I love the style of the restaurant and the food was amazing. It's a great family restaurant or to-go for a quick and healthy meal!

Wynwood Diner - I ordered the "Mean Bean Burger" and it was one of the best veggie burgers I've ever had! It's a great place to eat before or after a trip to Wynwood Walls.

DIRT Miami Restaurant Sign

Dirt - Dirt is a cute clean eating restaurant near Lincoln Road Mall. I had a phenomenal avocado toast and it was a great place to decompress and relax after a hot day at the beach.


East, Miami: I am in love with our hotel! Our room is like a mini apartment, it has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a kitchen/living room area. It was comfortable to live in while we were there, the perfect temporary "home." Apparently, some big tennis players were staying at the same time as us, as well as some actors who were filming the pilot for a new crime show!


Nadal vs Fognini at Miami Open 2017

Miami Open - This obviously depends on when you'll be in Miami, but we had the pleasure of going to the Miami Open. My dad and I are tennis players (in the loose sense of the word) and fans, so we really enjoyed seeing Nadal play and win. It reminded me of being at a music festival because in between big matches there were other matches happening, but also food and company sponsored tents.

Lincoln Road Mall - Of course, I did some shopping, so we went to Lincoln Road Mall. It's an outdoor mall that spans a few streets and has every store I could want. I found some cute pieces in Madewell and Urban Outfitters.

Wynwood Walls Entrance

Wynwood Walls - Wynwood Walls was my must see this trip. Not only is a great setting for Instagram pictures, but it has art from some really famous street artists like Shepard Fairey.

Biking - My sister and I rented bikes through Citi Bike at South Beach and had a great time. I'm not a big fan of the beach and I didn't like this beach especially, but biking was a great way to enjoy the weather and the ocean view.
