monday mash-up.

Happy Monday! What a whirlwind weekend! {cv} and I got home late last night from my work trip to South Beach and I have a few of my favorite instagrams from the trip to share. I managed to mix in some fun--outside of work--along the way ;) {If you don’t follow me yet, you can find me here--@amv529!}


I won’t bore you with a day-by-day recap, but suffice it to say, we packed a LOT into our three days in Florida. From a perfect Blogger Blitz Miami to ridiculously wonderful dinners, I’m still riding the high from a terrific little vacay. We had a stand-out meal at The Dutch and an absolutely unforgettable experience at Nobu. Poolside drinks all along Collins Avenue, be it at the Perry, Delano or Ritz made a great time even better ;) Another highlight was the bevy of dresses awaiting me at our hotel from Rent the Runway--that pink dress could be my favorite rental yet.

Sightings of Michael Kors {at the not-to-be-missed Yardbird Southern Table + Bar--during Blogger Blitz, no less!}, Mark Wahlberg, and Flo Rida satiated my need for a celebrity spotting. Along the same lines, I met one of my favorite bloggers-turned-friends, including Sarah {spotted in the last row of photos!} and a host of other phenomenal ladies at Blogger Blitz. All in all, this weekend qualifies as a tremendous success!

I have loads of excitement in store for you this week, a part of which is a festive round Cinco de Mayo or Derby Friday’sFancies {your pick!}. Don’t forget to check out other instagram-filled posts on the ever-lovely blog, a {little} dash of ash :) I hope you have a terrific Monday!

  21. Almost forgot...what made my weekend memorable was that I stayed home and relaxed. Well, that isn't entirely true...I worked on my freelance writing articles (I have a few that need to be completed for my client). :)
