another day in the m.i.a.

What a surprise! My awesome friend Sydni messaged me on Friday letting me know she'd be in town for a few days and wanted to see me. This chick is the bomb, so of course she was going to stay at my place! Also, my buddies Sarah & Tara were in town + my big bro & his crew. After having a chill Friday night with the peeps, Yumna & I decided we would go on our Miami routine with our friends.

We took them to our FAVORITE thrift store, Red White & Blue, located in Miami. There are a couple of awesome places to thrift in Miami. I always find the coolest stuff for dirt cheap, shirts, skirts & shorts for as cheap as $1, cute shoes for $4! A few months ago I even found 2 pairs or original Nike Bakins for 10 bucks each. If you're in town, i'd recommend to check out a few of them... one of the best thrifting areas is Flamingo Plaza, located in Hialeah.. this place is heaven!

If youre not big into thrifting, try it! You never know what you may find!

I spent a whopping $30 and left with 10 items, including these:

A cool green pot ($4) & mushroom salt/pepper shakerssssss ($3).

If you ever get a chance to check out the Red White & Blue on NE 6th Ave, you MUST go next door (on the south side), theres this awesome accessory store. I bought a bunch of cool hair pieces, jewelery, etc. for only $9.

We then took everyone to South beach, where we went to the usual spots.. Kid Robot, Urban Outfitters & American Apparel.. blah blah.

I met the Fafi x Mac dolls.

A few random pickups:

AA skirt, & some of my thrift store stuffzz.

A limited edition reversed smorkin' watermelon (for some reason i always get the mystery toys in my box!), some accessories (from that amazing spot) & a flask.

Conclusion: I love Miami. I love my adventures. This city is wonderful. I have a huge appreciation for South Florida in general. There is so much culture, so many unknown cool shops/restaurants, so many cool shows/festivals... and of course,

the sun is always shining!

Just for the sake of my Miami post, one of my favorite theme songs:
Miami- Will Smith

And also, i've been listening to a lot of old Craig David... his music is so chill & sexy:
Fill Me in- Craig David

Peace & Love
