miamii ayay πŸ’™

Miamii beach is a beautiful place for ocean souls, to escape the winter blues for tropical temperatures, to explore the white sandy beaches, and to swim in the turquoise blue oceanπŸ’™. So go with the waves to beautiful Miamii and explore all the lovely beaches, island adventures, and tropical flora and fauna that this city on the beach has to offer. The only daily luxury you’ll need in your suitcase is a bikini and havaianas.

πŸ’™ A day on the beach: you can find beautiful beaches in Sunny Isles with oceanside boutique hotels, chique spas and dream apartments like Jade Ocean. In South Beach you can photograph all the colourful beach houses along the coast, enjoy a chique lunch at Nikki beach, and take a bike ride through the art deco district, to the islands on the Venetian Causeway or cycle all the way to Key Biscayne. Secondly, you can go to the tropical Miami keys (try a key lime pie) and beautiful Naples on the Gulf of Mexico (visit sea turtles on Marco island or collect seashells on Sanibel island). 

My daily luxury: a turquoise bikini from Victoria’s Secret (in photo), Kopari‘s organic coconut oil is essential to hydrate summer beauties’ hair, skin and sandy feet, Dior Bronze will give you sun protection and a delicious scent, a Bkr water bottle and Fiji water will keep you cool and hydrated from within. 

πŸ’™ Shopping: you can find beautiful shops in Aventura mall, South Miami Beach, and the Japanese inspired outdoor mall the Falls (with Japanese gardens and waterfalls). Also Naples is a chique place to shop. I love the spring-summer collections in white, sand and blue, for example Dream Angels lovely lace lingerie from Victoria’s Secret, knit dresses by Michael Kors, white macramΓ© summer dresses by Twin-Set, striped “Ocean Soul” top (in photo) and white macramΓ© tops by Patrizia Pepe, Liu Jo‘s white and blue denim collection (see mini skirt in photo), cotton off shoulder tops by Sea NY, and customized havaianas

πŸ’™ Daily luxury_food: another thing you need to try in Miamii is the South-American cuisine, the avocado spring rolls and Luau salad from the Cheesecake Factory, and a coconut milk cappuccino. Try these nice restaurants, too: oceanside Nikki Beach, brunch at Sense beach house, sushi at Samurai, Italian at George’s, Cuban at Bongo’s.

πŸ’™ Beautiful places to go on an adventure outside of Miami are the Keys, Naples, and the Bahamas. Secondly, you can visit the Disney resorts, Seaworld and Universal Studios in Orlando.

Dream and love the daily luxury in your life πŸ’™ For daily luxury, moda and beautiful places, you can follow me on www.nickybianca.com and www.pinterest.com/nicky_bianca/.

La bella cittΓ  di moda Firenze

In the 1920’s a bellboy in a chique hotel started designing beautiful, handmade pieces of leather luggage and travel bags for the chic and wealthy in Florence, italy. Grace Kelly and Jacky Kennedy loved his fine collection of bags. In the course of the 20th century the bellboy, Guccio Gucci, had created an empire with his family business in Firenze (Florence). The beautiful pieces of travel bags, suitcases and the clothing collections designed by Gucci, from the twenties to the present day, can be admired in the Gucci museum in Firenze. 

Gucci is merely one of the inspirational success stories that are set in the bellissima cittΓ  di moda Firenze. Small scale family businesses in fine leather and wool have grown out to become fashion empires on which the sun doesn’t set. Sergio Rossi is another good example of this. The beautiful quality and design of its leather shoes has made Sergio Rossi an international success. Armani, Acquazzura, Patrizia Pepe, Pucci, and Salvatore Ferragamo are other examples of beautiful, internationally renowned brands that all started in the city of Firenze.

The Via de’ Tornabuoni is the most beautiful and chique street in the city center of Firenze, where you will find the boutiques of HermΓ¨s, Pucci, Tiffany’s, Bulgari, Dior and many more. La Piazza della Reppubblica is the historic square of the city and a perfect starting point to explore the boutiques in the small side streets Via Roma and Via Calziuoli, for example Fratelli Roselli, Liu Jo, Pollini, Luisa via Roma, La Rinascente. You may also find little family run shops where the shoes, bags and clothes are still being handmade. 

Even though, Firenze is a perfect place for a shopping trip, you shouldn’t miss the cultural and architectural beauty of the city. Il Duomo, il Battistero, Piazza Signorina, Piazzale Michelangelo and il Giardino di Boboli are beautiful, breathtaking locations to explore in the city. And you have to try all the delicious dolci, icecream and pizza that Firenze has to offer. The beautiful boutiques, architecture and food make Firenze one of my favorite Italian cities πŸ’™πŸŒΊ.  

Miamii πŸ’™

With its palm trees, white beaches, and turquoise blue sea, Miamii is a beautiful place to visit in the winter or summer. It is one of those beautiful cities on the beach. The beautiful architecture of the city and its cool, beachy vibes make Miamii a perfect hideaway. With my bikini and havaianas still on, I just came home from a beautiful vacation in Miamii πŸ’™πŸ‰. I love the nearness of the water, swimming in the sea, the turquoise beach houses, the chique apartments in North Miami Beach, The Falls and Aventura mall, and the South-American cuisine. When you are coming to Miiamii, as I like to call Miami, don’t forget to see these beautiful places in this cool city on the beach:

πŸ’™ In North Miami Beach you will find the most beautiful and chique apartments and spa-hotels on the beach, for example the lovely Jade Ocean (my dream apartment). In Surfside, Sunny isles and Ball harbour you will find many beautiful places to go to the beach or to do some shopping. Don’t forget to go to Aventura mall to shop your bikinis at Victoria’s secret, try a cappuccino with coconut milk at the Starbucks (mm πŸ’™), eat a Luau salad at the Cheesecake factory and find your summer dress at BCBG Maxazria, Michael Kors, Macy’s or Bloomingdale’s.

πŸ’™ Don’t forget to spend a day at South Beach to photograph all the beautiful beach houses and to lunch at the cool beach restaurants like Nikki Beach. You can spend a beautiful day on the beach swimming, surfing, chilling! 

πŸ’™ Coconut creek, Palm beach, and the Japanese-styled mall The Falls are nice places to visit in Miami. When you have some days to spend in Miami, drive down to the Florida Keys. After a beautiful five-hour road trip with the ocean on either side, you will reach the beautiful, Caribbean like islands of the Keys, where you can swim, surf, ride a beach bike and eat the best Keylime pies!

πŸ’™ Orlando is a cool place to visit and is only a four-hour drive from Miami. In Orlando you will find all the themeparks from Disney, for example Animal Kingdom, Seaworld, and Universal Studios. In Downtown Disney you will find Disney-inspired stores, live music, clubs and restaurants where you can have a fun night out. For example, Gloria Estefan’s Cuban style restaurant Bongos is a very nice place where the rhythm is going to get you πŸ’™ xx
