It was a little bit cold for Miami (74) but we had a great time. We were supposed to be 5 of us but one of the girls was sick and the other two never showed up... I couldn't believe it!!!
The spa have all kind of treatments and they use only natural products. At the restaurant the menu is very frugal and most of the options are organic/vegan, the chocolate vegan brownie w/soy vanilla ice cream was yummy!! But the most important thing is that my friend Alejandra was very happy... and so I was. Thanks for all the good wishes!!
The staff didn't let us use cell phone or camera inside the spa section so I snap some pictures from the outdoors I hope you like it....

Casa Casuarina

A while ago my husband and I had the privilege of been invited to spend the day at Casa Casuarina, a very expensive members only club located in South Beach best known as Gianni Versace's former home and the place where he was murdered. The house is stunning in every sense, I managed to take some pictures (was not allowed). I just found out that they are now offering tours to the general public, if you are planning to travel down here don't miss it, it is really worth it. Click here to check out the website and get more info.

What a great idea for a B.Day Cake!!!

Last saturday I went to a friend's 40th Birthday Party. The party was great and the best part was the monopoly board cake...every space was a picture of an event in his life or the address of a place he lived, or a school he went, all edible, I loved it!!!! I think is great idea for any gender/age party. See you soon.
