When I am travelling I always like to scope out some of the local favourites. I read that the Cupcake Galleria had the best cupcakes in South Florida so of course, we had to check it out. One of the most popular items on their menu are their "cake shakes". OMG!!!!! My kids tried one and it is was probably the best thing ever and I am not even a fan of shakes. The cupcakes were amazing too. We got to meet the owner Charli and she was as sweet as her treats. She has promised to come on the radio show, so stay tuned. Perhaps she will even give us the recipe for those delicious cake shakes!!!!!!!!! In the meanwhile, the Cupcake Galleria will ship their cupcakes directly to your home.

The Eden Roc in Miami is one of my favorite hotels. It is rich in both glamour and history. In it's heyday, the Eden Roc attracted glamorous stars such as Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior, Ernest Hemingway, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Katherine Hepburn and so many more. It was designed by architect Morris Lapidus in the 1950's to resemble a Hollywood stage set with its theatrical architecture elements. The Eden Roc was known as the "Grande Dame of Miami Beach". This historical hotel has been so wonderfully renovated with the lobby's original fixtures and staircase. Just walking into the Eden Roc you can picture all of the Hollywood stars mingling about. Most recently, chef Nobu has joined Eden Roc to open his Michelin star dining experience in Miami. There are also plans to open a Nobu Hotel inside the Eden Roc hotel, which promises to be spectacular. I have added this to my bucket list...stay tuned!!!

The only United States presentation will be at the NSU Art Museum in Ft Lauderdale until June of this year. The exhibit highlights 90 dresses, gowns, suits, coats from such designers as Valentino, Fendi, Gucci, Ferragamo, Pucci and many more. There are also incredible one of a kind Bulgari Heritage Collection jewels including the iconic Serpenti collection (my favorite). To learn more about this special exhibit click HERE.
