Staycations at The Marquette Hotel Minneapolis


Photography by: Angel Torres

Have you ever done a staycation? Even better do you know what it is? Well, my hubby and I got to do our second staycation this past weekend here in Minneapolis. Staycation basically is when take time off (a weekend or longer) but you don’t travel, you just stay in your city. Why would you do that you may ask? Well, for starters to get out of the routine or to simply disconnect without the traveling hassle.

My hubby and I were invited to The Marquette Hotel here in Minneapolis to stay for a weekend. They recently renovated it so we were pretty excited to check it out since there has been some buzz about it around the city. I had not been to it previously so I don’t have a comparison point but I have to say I am pretty impressed with it.

Jungle Fever For Jungle Print

The jungle print really started last year early summer, but as anything it took a little while to take off. To me it was love at first sight! Maybe it is because at the time I was living in Miami and I was really embracing all the beachy vibes this print gives me. It is one of those prints that you really cannot over do and that looks great on every piece whether is a one piece like the one I am wearing here or on a top or just pants. I even saw once a 2 piece with a crop top and pats with the jungle print and it was TOO cute!

Blogversary: Miles + Smiles Turns 2!



What a journey it has been! It feels like it was yesterday that while eating BBQ ribs at Shorty's in Miami that my husband and I came to the realization that I had so much to say to the world and so Miles + Smiles was born.

The blog has been transforming with me as my life keeps changing. It started as a long distance relationships blog, then into a wedding blog and now beauty and fashion have taken a big part of it. I don't like to call my self a fashion blogger, or a beauty blogger because I don't consider myself an "expert" in either of those. I want to tell my story, what has worked for me thru the experiences that life has given me and hope that someone finds it useful.

Orlando Bound: My first girls trip!



Back in June I had an unexpected gift; BlogHer invited me to attend their event in Orlando. I had heard a lot about it in the past but with everything happening in my life at that point I just really forgot to plan the trip. But when they invited me to come I took it as a sign from life giving me a push to learn more about blogging and keep getting better at it. So, I decided to go.

The first thing that came to my mind was hotel! Where was I going to stay?! I could not afford staying at the hotel by myself. So, I posted it on Facebook and reached out to my blogger friends. Luckily, a rather big group of bloggers from Miami were going and renting an Airb&b and they let me join them.
