Miami baby!

Recently I shared with you my Miami nails from the sunny South Beach and I thought you might be interested in hearing a bit more about my trip.

Miami renowned for where the party meets the beach and people go to be seen - and it was fabulous to watch them. South Beach is home to the famous Ocean Drive filled with gorgeous art-deco hotels and bars, however, we decided to stay a 15 minute strolll away on the opposite 'coast' of Miami Beach at The Mondrian. Getting the evening sun after it was long gone from South Beach, the pool it was the perfect location for sunset cocktails. The staff were friendly, helpful but not overbearing and the hotel deco was eclectic - I didn't quite get used to the lady in the lobby, or our room...

South Beach itself was amazing, the sea was warm and turquoise and the beach huts so pretty. For $10 you can hire a lounger and chill out, or do some serious people watching!

Mr bmb has always wanted to go to a basket ball match so prior to our trip I booked tickets to suport the city's team Miami Heat play The Nets (mr bmb was slightly disappointed the Nicks weren't in town, but an excuse to head to NYC...) it was such a fun evening eating pizza and drinking bud court side (almost) whist waving my foam finger.

Although days of the week mean pretty little on hols (apart from the countdown to returning home!) brunch on sunday is a good routine to keep. We really went to town and headed to The Setai, a luxurious hotel towards the north end of Ocean Drive. For $85pp you are treated to the most sumptuous buffet including freeflowing champagne. Bewarned, after the bacon, waffles, fresh tropical fruit, seafood platters, cured meats, curries, mini butgers you won't be needing to eat again for a while. Brunch commences at 11.30am and we rolled back to our lodgings around 3pm, where I deliberated whether I wanted to get back in my bikini!

With so many resturants bars, hotels and beach spots to try, I think SoBe will be needing another trip sometime soon...
