{Hello! Although my 10-day trip to Miami does not start until Wednesday, the next few days is all about last-minute shopping, luggage packing {which I always enjoy}, planning an itinerary and spending some quality time with family before departure... I plan to tweet about my vacation, so please feel free to drop in here to follow along!... in the meantime, wishing you all the very best...stay well, Linda xoxo}

{How gorgeous is this nail art?  Hope your weekend was fabulous!  This is my last week at work before going on annual leave!  My husband and I have decided to go to Miami for our vacation this summer.  Have any of you been, or live there now?  I would love your recommendations as to which shops or places to visit... albeit I will have to drag myself away from the beaches, which may be difficult.  Have a great week...}
