The main reason for our Miami trip was that there was a Bulgarian concert in Ft. Lauderdale. A few of my friends were going and convinced me to go. Also, it was one of our best friends birthday this weekend and he wanted to go celebrate in Miami. Meanwhile, another friend of ours had family visiting from Bulgaria and had planned to take them to Miami for the weekend. This sounds like enough reasons for a weekend trip to Miami, right? LOL

My Miami Trip – The Hotel
We usually book an Airbnb when we visit Miami, but this time we booked last minute and there wasn’t anything available that we liked and we booked a room at the Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton at Downtown/Brickell area. We ended up loving the hotel and it was right in the middle of everything, so it was very convenient. They offered us complimentary welcome drinks at check-in, so we headed to the pool area to enjoy them as soon as we arrived.
My Miami Trip – Sugar
We got ready really quick and headed to Sugar. If you haven’t heard of it, it is an upscale rooftop bar at the EAST Miami Hotel. My boyfriend and I had been there once before, but it was during the summer, late at night and it was too hot and crowded. This time, we decided to go at sunset for cocktails and appetizers. They had $100 minimum spend per person to sit at a table, so we ended up hanging out at the bar. We weren’t planning on staying for too long anyways. The food and drinks aren’t anything special, but I love the atmosphere, and of course the view!
I got SO many compliments on the dress I wore. It is from Zaful, but it is unfortunately s0ld out. I got a small and it was big on me, but I ended up altering it because I loved the color. If you follow my Instagram stories, you probably saw that I ended up making my own bobby pins! I was so excited to wear them in Miami.
We also stopped at another bar located right inside. Last time we really wanted to go there, but they told us there was a private party and we couldn’t get in. Now we found out, that it is open to the public until 10pm. If you want to stay longer they will give you a stamp and let you stay, but they won’t allow any new people after 10pm. Definitely keep this in mind if you ever go! The bar was really nice and has an amazing view. Wish I took a picture to show you!
My Miami Trip – Marion
We left around 8:30pm and headed to Marion, where we met with our other friend and his family. We knew it was going to be busy and made a reservation because we were a big group. It turned out that all reservations made before 10pm were only for 2 hours. Marion is a restaurant, that turns into a bar around midnight. They have a DJ, dancers, people dance on the tables and it is really fun. Luckily, our server happened to be from Bulgaria. What are the odds? LOL Since they weren’t going to let us stay longer at our table, he put out a tall table for us at the bar area. We all had so much fun and ended up staying there the whole night! Definitely recommend this place if you are ever in the area!
My pool outfit
On Sunday we went to the pool to relax for a few hours. I posted a poll on my stories the night before we left if I should wear this outfit and most people said yes. However, someone sent me a DM that it is so two years ago and I should wear something colorful. Well, I guess I am bringing the trend back!
This items was listed as a dress on the website when I bought it, but it was too see through for me, so I ended up wearing it a few time as a cardigan with jeans. I really love the gold metallic fabric and I think it also looks super cute as a cardigan. What do you guys think?
I guess it was only a day Miami trip because we headed to Ft. Lauderdale right after where we stayed at an Airbnb with another group of Bulgarian friends. The concert was at a really nice whiskey bar. It wasn’t as much fun as I expected, because it ended early but we all went bar crawling after and had a fun night!
I can’t believe we were only there for two days. Feels like so much longer! I love Miami and always have such a great time when I go. I am so excited I also got some work done and took some pictures in Miami, having in mind that I was there with guys only! My boyfriend was so sweet to take my pictures, even being hungover! By the way, most of the photos are taken with his phone, the iPhone XS Max. Isn’t the quality and the colors amazing?
Hope you all have a great rest of your week! I have a lot of work to get done today, because I am working at my other job the rest of the week.
