A Last Minute Trip to Miami | Travel Blog + Tips for a Budget-Friendly Weekend

Hi loves! My boyfriend and I just got back to snowy NJ from a nice, long weekend in Miami. We decided to do a little trip instead of gifts for Christmas this year and we landed on Miami since we got an amazing deal on flights! This post is a little bit of a travel blog and some tips we used to spend under $500 each for all transportation, accommodations and food/drink! I hadn't been to Miami since I was 14, so this was my first time as an ~adult~ and I certainly fell in love.

Apartment Refresh 2017 | Living Room

Hi loves! Welcome back. If you've been following my blog for a while, I used to talk about how I was going to be moving out of my apartment soon because my lease was up... buuuut, 8+ months later we're still here! Our landlord let us go month-to-month and we haven't found anything that blew us away, so we decided to stay put for a while!

With that said, I was really looking forward to moving solely for the fact that I could redecorate. I honestly love where we live so much (that wall though), it'd be hard to give it up. Anyways, my redecorating itch got the best of me, so once I took down all of our Christmas decor, I decided it was time to refresh our place!
