Miami 2020

At the beginning of what we now know as the Covid 19 pandemic, things in the world started to change rapidly and my anxiety took a turn for the worse. I decided that I needed an escape and booked myself a flight to Miami, Florida. 

Dress: Boohoo, Shoes: Louboutin Fossiliza

I stayed at the W downtown because I was only going for a quick overnight trip. The location is close to restaurants, museums and anything else I’d need. That includes the Icon Brickell Spa: the most gorgeous spa I’ve had the pleasure of laying my eyes on so far. It was absolutely fantastic!

I was pretty tired after flying from New York and checking in to the hotel, so I decided to have a quick dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, Addikt. The view was gorgeous, the air was warm but breezy, the music was bumping and the food was delicious! I made a new friend from the UK and we had a really good time. They invited me to hang out, but I was so tired I just went to bed; I had an early spa day planned anyway.

You know you’re having a great time if you go to the gym on a quick getaway. I woke up so refreshed and energized but I was too early for the spa. The gym was right next to the spa and had a gorgeous view so I figured it can’t hurt. (I should’ve been consistent in the gym years ago but, whatever.) 

When I finished, I went back to my room, showered, drank a post-workout smoothie and went on my fabulous way to be pampered.

What. A. BEAUTY!!!! I couldn’t believe my eyes. I had seen photos before, they don’t do this place justice. The ambiance was so calming as soon as I walked in the door, and once I went in the locker room, forget it. I cancelled all other plans and spent my day relaxing around in the sauna, and exploring various temperature pools and jacuzzis. I was the only person in there for a while but even when other people came, I still felt (and had a photo shoot) like I was there alone; It was THAT peaceful. The attendants were very helpful and kind, Jessica even helped me get some bomb pictures! 

Before I knew it, it was time to go catch my flight back home, I thought of extending my stay but previous commitments prevented me from doing so. 

It was a super short trip but as I always say, everything happens for a reason. A few hours after I landed in NYC, the country was shutting down and flights canceled. As beautiful as Miami is, I wouldn’t have wanted to be stuck there. 

I can’t wait to go back and I can absolutely see myself being a regular at this hotel. Shoutout to the W! Everything a classy and fabulous woman like myself can ask for.
