Hotel Urbano, Miami + Miami Bloggers Brunch


Spent Saturday with a group of girls that I have really grown fond of - my Miami blogger sisters.  I was so shy when I first started the blog, I never went to any Miami events with any of the local girls.  I am so happy to say that I'm over that now and have met so many great people as a result.  I really love the doors that this little side project has opened up.

Jana of OJ & CIGS set up a brunch for us girls, at Hotel Urbano off of Brickell Ave, a chic boutique hotel that doubles as part art gallery and part lazy day paradise (think: poolside cabanas and palm trees). Massage and nail stations were set up on-site, compliments of Exhale Spa with a fashion show by Zeki Swimwear and a fab jewelry stand by Dopodomani.

Yes, it was really, really hot, but still a great time.  Our gift bags included what I hope will be an awesome hair glossing treatment from a local salon (Red Carpet Salon).  I'm really excited to book my appointment because my hair is in major need of some love.

Lots of pictures of these lovely ladies, and the links to their blogs, down towards the bottom of this post (warning: picture heavy post) 

I hope you enjoy my pictures, and thank you for reading.  It makes me happy :)
