My Vacation Trips!

Miami Diaries: The Video

Hey loves!

I traveled to Miami at the end of last year for the holidays. Miami is a very beautiful city with colorful views and multicultural residents. In my previous post about Miami, I always stated that when visiting BayshoreΒ that I felt like I wasn’t in the United States because most of the people spoke Spanish. In my time at Bayshore, I managed to get some filming done so I could make a short video of the trip.

The video is short and does not contain all the activities and sightseeing we did sadly. This video is practice for the relaunch of my YouTube channel this year. I am traveling quite a bit this year, so I wanted to use my vacation to Miami to practice travel vlogging. Travel vlogging is actually very daunting. It is a constant production that is going on. During the trip, I didn’t vlog to entire time I vlogged on and off. Don’t get me wrong vlogging is fun, but next time I will be more prepared to film the entire trip. To my surprise, I saw quite a few people vlogging in the shopping centers, at the hotel and the beach. If you all are interested in knowing more about the ups and downs of vlogging let me know in the comment section.

Miami Diaries: Day 1 – 4

Hey loves!

Happy Holidays to everyone I hope you are enjoying the day with your friends and family!Β My family and I are celebrating the holidays in Miami this year with my mom’s side of the family. We will be in Miami until the first of the New Year!

Hotel

Doubletree By Hilton Grand Hotel Biscayne Bay Miami, Florida

The View

We are staying at the Doubletree By Hilton Grand Hotel Biscayne Bay Miami, Florida. The views that are seen at this hotel is absolutely amazing! Our room is right on the bay. Like, the Hilton Resort room in Myrtle Beach I can see the ocean from my bed. We are on the eighth floor and the view across from the elevator when walking to the room is spectacular as well. The views really level up this hotel from being average. If this hotel didn’t have the views it has it wouldn’t be anything extraordinary. .

The service

We have been at this hotel for four days now and the service has been okay. Like I mentioned earlier we are right in the bay and with a picture perfect view of the Miami skyline which means this hotel is crazy expensive because of the views. The housekeeping at this hotel is slow and lackadaisical. In my family’s first night at the hotel, we had to call down to the hotel front four times in order to get a microwave in the room. The housekeeping people didn’t deliver the microwave until the second night of our stay. On the second night of our stay, we requested an extra blanket for the pullout sofa in the room five different times and the blanket didn’t arrive until the following day. The housekeeping did not clean our room not once before our four day at the hotel. When all of our concerns were brought up to the front desk they apologized and tried to give us more Hilton points in return for the mediocre service that we had been experiencing. I’m am truly shocked by the service at Hilton because were diamond members and have never experienced this before. We still have a few days left on our trip hopefully the Doubletree will redeem themselves in the hospitality department of this hotel.

Food

I am not going to mention all of our meals because some of them we eat at chain restaurants and for some go the meals I forgot to take some pictures.

Breakfast

For breakfast, we have three different restaurants that we can choose from to eat. The first one is a steakhouse, the second is a bakery and the third one is a deli. We have eaten at the deli and the steakhouse this trip and they both have pretty good food. The fresh made french toast has been my go-to for breakfast most days.

Lunch

The best lunch we have been since we’ve been here has been the Hard Rock Cafe! Their cauliflower buffalo wings are crazy good.

We tried a Mexican restaurant in the Lincoln Road mall area named El Macho’s. It was okay nachos my mom enjoyed it more than I did.

Dinner

I’ve been to one of the local pizzerias named Pizza Pazza twice and their thin crust has been amazing both times.

Activities

  • Nail salon
  • Banana Boating
  • Margaret Park
  • Lincoln Road Mall
  • Bayside
  • Iguana watching
  • Shopping
  • And more….

Experience (so far)

It has been a blast! There have been some ups and downs but that is to be expected on a vacation.

My Day In Fort Worth/Dallas

Hey loves!

Gay Lord Resort

The Resort is straight out of a Hallmark Christmas movie! It was a dream and a sight for sore eyes. We spent all about 30 minutes in this resort taking pictures and basking in the most wonderful time of the year.

Los Amigos

Probably the best Mexcian food I have ever tried in my life! That is a statement of its self because I love to dine in Mexican restaurants. This little “hole in the wall” takes the cake for having the best fajitas in my book. The vegetables were seasoned like no other and the display of how the food was outlaid on the plate was. I simply adore the atmosphere of the restaurant! I will definitely have to stop by this place again when I’m Dallas.

In- N- Out

It was.. Not what I expected at all! To be honest, for some I imagined the milkshake to be a milkshake from Pop’s Diner from Riverdale. I have no idea why I thought the milkshake would have that connotation in my mind. I was truly shocked when I saw the girl pulling the lever on the machine for my strawberry milkshake. With all that said Chick-fil-A has better milkshakes lol. I’m glad that I went to In- N-Out for the experience of going!

The Gambler

Hey loves!

Sometimes you got to know when to hold ’em. Know when to fold ’em. Know when to walk away. And know when to run

Yesterday, I announced first on my Snapchat that I quit my job and booked a flight to Dallas, Texas. On my Instagram yesterday I said I would explain why and what’s exactly going on in my life right now.

Why I quit my job?

My season had come to an end at the company I was working for. The management had been changed three different times in my six months employment at Parker School Uniforms. I was already on the fence after the two changes in management at that company. The third management team that Parker had brought in was not professional at all. The negative, shady and condescending tone and mean girl mannerisms were not tolerated by my coworkers and me. Therefore yesterday morning I along with my other coworkers quit during the middle of a heated and hostile “team meeting” with the current management before the store even opened.

Why did I book a flight to Dallas?

I needed a vacation to clear my head and a new outlook for my next moves! I feel very happy and blessed that I am fortunate enough to have parents that not only backed my decision but also installing good books morals, fearlessness and knowing when to stand up for myself.

What’re my next moves?

Starting my freshman year of college in the new! Starting some new entrepreneur ventures along with a lot of traveling.

Asya Alert: Myrtle Beach

Hey loves!

I touchdown in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina last night and it is absolutely gorgeous. We have the pleasure of staying at the Hilton Resort right on the beach line with a view that can take you breath away! I woke up at 6:15 in the morning just to take some snaps of the ocean and the room.

I will be filming for an up coming YouTube video I will post about my trip as well!

I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving and I will post a little late today about what’s happening in my Black Friday experience.

Travel Vlog: Cozumel, Mexico

Hey loves!

I hope you all enjoy this blog of my family and I Β in Mexico. I had a blast. Mexico and is a vibrant city with amazing tequila and cuisine. I was over the moon about the kayaking and snorkeling that we got to do. I lost the snorkeling and kayaking video (which I am so mad about). Snorkeling has been on my bucket list for a while and I am glad I finally got to cross it off.

Day: (3,4,&5) Mexico

Hey loves!

After, Key West we got back on the cruise ship and cruised to Mexico. It took an about half a night to sail to Cozumel. Out of the whole trip, this city by far was my favorite. I expressed enormous gratitude and appreciate to be able to experience the Mexican culture first hand. The media in the states right now do not portray those who migrant to the America in the best light, so to experience life in the other country was mind changing. I met some amazing people who are restaurant owners who are just grinding it out trying to make a life for them and their families. Visiting Mexico not only opened my eyes to how fortune I am, but to how beautiful the natural resources are. The ocean was like no other! I went kayaking and snorkeling and I kid you not it was life changing. I was a little reserved at to just dive in the water, but once I was in I couldn’t get out! I wish I would have taken some underwater pictures with my phone but I ran out of storage sadly. I did take pictures with my canon that I will show below. The food was good and the shopping was even better. All I have to say when shopping on the streets of Mexico is bargain, bargain, bargain.

​Ps. I will have a separate post with more pictures of my vacation!

Day 2: Key WestΒ 

Hey loves!

The first stop of the cruise was Key West. I had never been to Key West before this point, but I am glad I had the opportunity to explore this island. I went on a historic trolley ride around the whole island. I found out a mass of information about this beautiful town. First and for most Ernest Hemingway wrote three books while living in Key West, there is a 90-mile marker to Cuba, it is a haunted town, chickens are protected there, war history is rooted deep in the history of this island and a lot more information that I forgot lol. The pictures of Key West tell a better story than I do!

Departure : ATL to MiamiΒ 

Hey loves!

** I am off the cruise ship now, but I am chronicling the trip since the wifi was poo!**

​​

We left the ATL bright and early on a 10 o’clock flight to Miami! We landed in Miami just in a niche of time to board our cruise ship that is selling to Key West and Cozumel Mexico. The ship was pretty epic. Exploring the ship was fun until I got lost in the maze that is the main deck. By the grace of God I started to learn my way around through trial and error. The first day on the cruise was a day at the sea (sailing on the ocean with no stops).  I enter the ship in my Lucky Brand attire and switched into a white bikini that I hand sewed together myself with a black cover up I thrift.
