Michael and I went to Miami for my 30th birthday this year! It was such a fun trip to take as a couple. We were able to go to the spa, so many great restaurants, the pool, the beach. It was amazing! Here are some of details of the trip!

Where we stayed…

We stayed at the 1 Hotel in Miami! I have stayed there in the past and was there in the fall with my mom and sister. It is a really nice property. They have a beautiful pool area overlooking to the ocean. The property also has seven restaurants/bars! So if you want to stay somewhere where everything is right on property too, this is a great option.


We had dinner at so many great restaurants in Miami. The options are endless for any type of food you would want. We tried Mila, Pura Vida, and Cecconi’s Miami Beach.

Cecconi’s Miami Beach: We had amazing Espresso Martinis, the Ahi Tuna Tartare, Burrata, Spaghetti Lobster, Agnolotti del plin, truffle & parmesan fries. It was such a great meal and definitely one of my favorites.

Pura Vida: Pura vida was a great little lunch spot in Miami. It was so fresh and had great options. I had a Mango Smoothie and Avocado Toast.

Mila: This was definitely one of my absolute favorite restaurants. The vibe, the food, everything was on point! We had an amazing Margarita Verde, the Eel avocado roll, spicy hamachi roll, and miso-marinated chilean sea bass. Everything was amazing!

Sunlife Organics- There are several locations of Sunlife Organics across the U.S. and I love their smoothies. Some of our favorites were the Blue Majik, Million Dollar Smoothie, and their Matcha Latte.

What we did

Most of the days we would spend by the pool at the 1 Hotel! Their pool is so pretty and overlooks the ocean. We had great food there and read in the lounge chairs. We also went to the spa at the 1 Hotel. It was so nice! We really enjoyed it and highly recommend.

Other than spending time at the pool and spa, we also did a little bit of shopping. We went to the Fashion District and Brickell area. Both had amazing shopping and was a nice area to walk around.
