Chocolate Covered Strawberries Overnight Oatmeal

Who says you can't have dessert for breakfast?
You read that right. Chocolate covered strawberries overnight oatmeal. For breakfast. And you don't have to feel guilty about it either.

Where To Eat, Stay & Shop In South Beach Miami

This morning +Booking.com and +Time Out New York  sent me on a spontaneous weekend getaway to Miami! They picked the city and didn’t tell me until the night before. Vacations are all about having fun and not stressing. So I didn’t do any research beforehand (shocking!), and I’m winging it with my first time on the East Coast. I have 57 hours in Miami – here’s where eat, shop, and play in South Beach!

I've been to First Texas Honda two times and have been super impressed by their service. (1) They replaced my car side mirror (it was shattered) for free. Only cost me for the product replacement. (2) State car inspection and multi-point inspection. The multi-point inspection is free if you come in for another service! They also helped replace my interior lightbulb for free (I only had to pay for the product replacement). Plus, you can get all the iced lattes you want from their complimentary cafe. Drinks, snacks, fruit cups, ect!

Absolutely love Trader Joe's! The prices are affordable and the return policy is awesome (if you don't like the product, bring it back and they'll refund you). Favorites: Frozen Indian meals, frozen chocolate croissants, pre-packaged salad packs, and quinoa.

Come for the view, the overpriced food isn't worth it. Service is great though. Pictures taken by the photographers are pricey ($40+)

Enjoyed our 4 day stay at ARIA! When you first enter the room, the blinds pull open and the TV turns out and plays music. Everything is electronically controlled. The bed (especially pillows) is comfy and the view is spectacular. ARIA Resort is cleaner than all the other hotels in Vegas and the spa ($30/day) is worth the upgrade. We enjoyed Sage Restaurant and Cirque du Soleil Zarkana.

Not bad for a buffet in Vegas. Lunch price comes with free beverages (coffee, tea, juice, & soda).

Burgers aren't life changing, expected more from Gordon Ramsay. Steak fries with garlic aioli were yummy.

Love coming here for the lunch specials and weekly specials. Less than $10 for spaghetti and meatballs, Italian salad and fresh bread!
