(((((( I put most under a cut - click read more at the end of the post to view 50 plus fab pics))))))
I had so much fun, I arrived around 9.30am May 28th, and left about 5pm June 1st (paid & changed my flight, even though it then got delayed )
I went with my family (sans parents), my friends, new friends, all people I love soooo much, and couldn't have asked for a better group of people to go to travel & party with (it was my first time). We were about 20 :) friends brought friends, it was like a tree branch.
we stayed in south beach (map) which is like the bottom of Miami beach, where everything is ridiculously expensive, 15-18% gratuity tip is enforced even if you are only one person, steak costs $39, alcohol about $25, and taxi guys choose to move so slow and charge you.
But if you do breakfast, and lunch specials($10-12), 2 for 1 huge margaritas ($25) stay in a suite & take your ramen/ indomie noodles, or go to Wet Willies/ Fat Tuesdays and drink cheap you'll be good. PS: they even charge females to get in the club!!!! lol wtf? even if you are early, and they want an even ratio of guys: girls or they wont let guys in. [but OMG if they don't think you look good, they wont let you in, crazy]
so here they are with limited interruptions :)
from the airport, met my cousins & friends, and we went to the beach:
hmm we noticed it was a lot of men
and a lot more men that were not hittin on us, so we ran (Dominique below)
and we met the coolest James Bond ever
Dominique, Danielle, Bond, Me, Nneka, Nk
c'mon I hadn't even checked into my hotel, gotta go. they got there a day before me.
then it started making sense, we were in the gay section.
cute yellow car thingie
shopping & to meet more people as they arrive
yay we bumped into my sister Gorgeous Mandy, while having lunch
at Night. Wet Willies (link).
Dominique, ME, Nk, Nneka, Danielle

at the Fifth. 400 life was throwing a party. LOL swag surfin (video ex.)on the table with some guy
edit: (I realized too many pics & too many girls lol) so ME:
LOL Dominique cracked me up the whole night.
Paul from College Hill SoBe was pretty cool.

confused & squeezing my hair
laughing at ourselves
Amanda, Jide, Me, Osahon (whoa can u believe we went to boarding school together yrs ago?)
Sunday, at the Shore Club, being a female in Miami is gold, I think you can get in anyway with females, they were just anal retentive when it came to bringing in a bunch of guys.
we made the coolest friend, Abby Baby!!
Later we went to Mansion
Thats when it all came full circle to me.
Apparently in Miami the black guys never hit on us, only Latina Chicks, but all the non black guys- white, latino, hit on us. Then again as long as everyone cute, who's complaining?? ok well except Shore Club
um Im not even sure when or where this was
Yo Nneka, can I have the whole outfit?? I don't mind rocking it & posting pics again?
