Book Club Monday

Today I am going to send you on a virtual Spring Break with this week's Book Club Choice, In the Spirit of Miami Beach.  I love this book.  It is so perfect to showcase on your coffee table.   The images are  beautiful and with each page,  you feel like you are right there sitting on the beach.  I also love the pool on the cover, it is the iconic South Beach Raleigh Hotel pool!!!  Here is what you will find inside:

What Venice was to the world during the Renaissance era, so Miami is to the world today. An active melting pot of cultures; where Art Deco contends with Spanish Baroque; where artists mingle with athletes, models, and socialites; where South Americans and Eastern Europeans sit together for espressos on Ocean Drive. This book explores Miami Beach style, from the mythical Lincoln Road to Art Basel Miami, one of the leading international art fairs. With an in-depth look at its historical past as well as its present-day glamour, In The Spirit of Miami Beach elegantly captures the city's vibrant personality and cultural jubilance. With an exuberant text by noted author, entertainer, and bon vivant David Leddick, this rich volume brings one of the world's hottest destinations to colorful life. The book concludes with a selective guide on the hotels, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and spas to experience "stylish Miami". - Amazon.com

My girls LOVE H&M.  When we visit my parents, it is the first place they
ask to go to!!!  I usually wait for them outside because the try on literally
everything.  BUT today I thought I would scope it out to find some great

small sampling below but the ones in the store were even cuter.  I ended up
buying the fringe top in a t-shirt style.  The dresses were also incredible.
There were so many great styles to take you into spring and summer.
I love the jewelry, especially the statement earrings (I got a pair for $5!!!!!!)
and how cute are those furry sandals!!!!???  H&M is a great place to get an
outfit pick me up without breaking the bank!!!!  Happy Shopping!!!!
