Simply Getaway...

...Escapade, Entweichen, Vlucht, απόδραση, 
Scappatella, Escapada...


This year has been crazy busy and at times, rather hectic, 
so now that we are almost half way through 2012, I am 
desperately craving a getaway!
Este año ha sido bastante loco y agotador, así que casi 
llegando a mediados de 2012, estoy desesperada por una 
escapada!

Un deseo por lugares distantes; el ansia por
viajar.

Miami by Garance Doré
So, when Estebi told me last month that he had business 
meetings in June in Miami and asked if I'd like to come,
I got excited. Then when he mentioned that we would be 
staying on South Beach in a fancy hotel and that I would 
have to keep myself entertained for three full days, I got 
really excited. Keep myself entertained in Miami?  REALLY!!?? 
Three days all alone to do nothing but shop! By myself! 
In Miami!  Yeah babe. I think I can handle that...
Así que, cuando Estebi me dijo el mes pasado que tenía un 
viaje de negocios en junio en Miami y me preguntó si 
quería ir, me emocioné. Y, cuando mencionó que nos alojaríamos 
en South Beach en un hotel elegante y que tendría que 
mantenerme entretenida por tres días, me emocioné aún 
más. ¿Mantenerme entretenida en Miami? ¿¿¡¡Enserio!!?? 
¡Tres días sola para ir de compras! ¡Sola! ¡En Miami! Sí, 
amor. Creo que me puedo 
arreglar...


Travel together, is better
that way.

Viajar juntos, es mejor.





Nunca ames a alguien que te trate
como si fueras ordinario.

Oscar Wilde
I will be jetting off today for ten days to relax in the 
Fontainebleau Hotel, I know! I'll be not suffering...
Estaré volando hoy por diez días de relajación en el hotel 
Fontainebleau, ¡Ya sé! No voy a estar sufriendo precisamente...


Fontainebleau Hotel
...I'm craving beach side cocktails...
...Estoy deseando cocteles al borde del mar...


l02sacom
...A lot little shopping...
...Muchas un poco de compras...


Fontainebleau Hotel
...Some pampering...Hey! I'm creative...
...Algunos mimos...Ey! Soy creativa...


Valentina Zelyaeva for Velvet Miami heat.
...some sunbathing, yep! creative, that's me!...
...algo de baños de sol, Sip! la creativa, ¡ésa soy yo!...

Fontainebleau Hotel
... garbage romance novels,  summer dresses, sunshine, and 
the feeling of having sand wiggle between my toes. 
...novelas románticas basura, vestidos livianos, y la 
sensación de arena rozando mis pies.


And the next seven days...It'll be just me and the hubby, 
100% kid-less, with a lot of time on our hands, like the 
good old days that sometimes seem so distant that I have to 
pull out the photo albums to remind myself that they really 
existed.
Y los siguientes siete días...Seremos solo yo y mi maridito, 
100% des-niñados, con mucho tiempo en nuestras manos, como en 
los buenas viejos épocas,que a veces parecen tan lejanas que 
tengo que sacar los álbumes para comprobar que realmente 
existieron.

La felicidad is como los besos, tienes que compartirla
para disfrutarla.

Bernard Meltzer

As a source of inspiration, I have assembled a list of 5 things 
to do in our romantic getaway. 
Como fuente de inspiración, preparé una lista de 5 cosas para 
hacer en nuestra escapada romántica.


1.  Say “Yes” to everything.
1.  Decir "Si" a todo.


Parasailing in Miami.
It's just a list, I'm not that brave...Ok, I'll try it...
Not in this life!
Es sólo una lista, no soy tan valiente...Bueno, lo intentaré...
No en esta vida!


Beach.cruising in Miami
Ah! Beach-cruisers are my favorites! Especially around 
South Beach...it is flat and easy...That's more like me!
Ah! ¡Las bicicletas playeras son mis favoritas! 
Especialmente en South Beach...Es simple y fácil...
¡Esto es más lo mío!

Plus, the fact that Florida law doesn’t require people to 
wear helmets on scooters makes it almost risky...I´m so brave!
Además, el Estado de Florida no exige cascos para bicicletas 
o motocicletas lo que lo hace casi riesgoso...Soy tan intrépida!



2.  Wear something really pretty.
2.  Usar algo realmente lindo.

...A colorful dress...
...Un vestido colorido...

...the perfect heels...
...los perfectos tacones...

...something white...
...algo blanco...


Ecru ballerina flats, Chloé
...comfortable flats...
...Chatas cómodas...


thesartorialist
garancedoré
...A breezy tunic shirt & gorgeous sandals...
...Una camisola etérea & unas increíbles sandalias...


rusticmeetvintage
...and of course hats.
...y por supuesto sombreros.



3.  Flirt like we did when we 
were dating.
3.  Coquetear como cuando éramos novios.

There must be loughs, loud loughs...
Tiene que haber muchas risas, carcajadas...

There must be kisses, lots of kisses....
Tiene que haber besos, muchísimos besos...

Miami Art-Deco & night.
And in the night...
Y por la noche...

...There must be dance, I love to dance with Estebi...
...Tiene que haber baile, me encanta bailar con Estebi...


f-r-u-i-t
hhhhim
...and one or two "Mojitos", or maybe never more, I'm a 
responsible woman... 
...y uno o dos "Mojitos", a tal vez ninguno más, soy una mujer responsable...


usee-right-thrume
p-aprika
Ow! ow!...something is not working here!!?? ...Ah! those five 
two "mojitos"!!
Ow! ow!...¡¡¿¿algo no está bien aquí!!??...Ah! ¡¡Fueron esos cinco 
dos "mojitos"!!


4.  Feed each other.
4.  Alimentarnos uno a otro.






Brunch
Veggie sandwich
...Simple, fresh dishes...
...Platos simples y frescos...


Chips & salsa
...or even simpler ones... Yeap! It's because of the "mojitos"...
I'm not that strong!!
...o aún más simples...Sip! Es por los "mojitos"...
¡¡No soy tan fuerte!!


5.  Gaze intently.
5.  Mirar atentamente.


fivedoorsdown
keep-austin-weird
... every single thing, to make it worth.
...Cada cosita, para que valga la pena.



whereisthecool
And take tons of pictures...
Y tomar montones de fotos...


5.  Hold on for dear life.
5.  Aferrarse como si te fuera la vida.



sandwichmistrss
And relax...
Y relajarse...

...taking long walks, with no shoes...
...dando largas caminatas, sin zapatos...


El placer de poder decir "al diablo con esto"


Sometimes, we just need a change of scenery and 
a break from our day to day responsibilities 
in order to reboot and recharge. I always feel so 
refreshed and energized creatively after a vacation.
Algunas veces, sólo necesitamos cambiar de escenario 
y cortar con las responsabilidades del día a día 
pare podernos reiniciar y recargar. Siempre me siento 
fresca , con energías y mucho más creativa luego 
de tomarme vacaciones.


What about you? Will you be jetting anywhere 
this month?
¿Y Tú? ¿Estarás volando a algún lugar este mes?



Big Hugs!
¡Abrazos!

Inés

  6. Wonderful!! I love this post .. the food, the romance, the sunshine, the pampering! South Beach is a wonderful vacation spot with gorgeous beaches, amazing restaurants, and lots of people watching to be had. I can relate to how you are feeling now and wish you a safe, romantic, and fun-filled getaway!

  17. I did the same thing last October. We had fun trying all the different cuisines - Peruvian, pisco sours, Columbian food, etc. If you go to the Miami Seaquarium you can ride on a dolphin! The flying trapeze school downtown will let you learn trapeze! Good luck!

  19. Ohhh my gosh!! INES!! You're going to have so much fun! My best friend lives in Florida, and we love the beaches there. Your mojito upside down pictures made ma laugh out loud. That's exactly why I stick to one! Too bad I'm not going to Florida this year. It would have been so much fun to meet you in person! :) Maybe someday!

  20. I am so in love with this post. So much inspiring photos and words. It just makes me want to cuddle with my love ones and dance the day away. I just read your profile and it said you're an architect! I love that, I am an architect myself too although not working these days. Anyways I hope you'll come visit my blog sometime. Oh and btw I have a little giftcard giveaway running right now too. Hope you have fun on your trip. Very jealous.
