A Sense Staycation #TFMTakeover


This past weekend I had the amazing opportunity to takeover one of the trendiest spots on South Beach, The Sense Beach House. Danielle (blog photographer) and I had a girls weekend staycation where we took over the hotels social media outlets and our own. It was so fun to get away for a little bit, and the best part being that we were in our own city (even though it didn't feel like it) that's one of the benefits of a "staycation". Over the 3 days of our takeover, we discovered and enjoyed the hotels amenities and the hidden gems in the surrounding area, while Danielle captured every moment perfectly. See below for a recap of the weekend, including every outfit detail!


Day 1:
Check in at the Sense. From the moment you step foot in the boutique style hotel you instantly feel right at home. The décor is just as cozy as any South Beach loft would be.

Day 2:
It was somewhat gloomy all weekend, but on the second day the sun was out. So when we woke up, hanging out by the pool seemed like the right thing to do. The pool at the Sense Beach House is one of my favorites because it's on the roof top overlooking South Beach & Downtown Miami.

After spending sometime by the pool, we decided to go out into the surrounding area and see what there was to discover. Since the hotel is right on Ocean Drive, the beach is just a skip away. I came across these Citi Bikes that were stationed at the entrance of the beach, and I gave them a try! Everyone on South Beach was literally on one of these. If you don't know about the Citi Bikes, they are sponsored by Citi Bank, where they have set up stations all around Miami for exclusive all day bike rentals. These aren't just any ordinary bikes, they are equipped with everything you may need on a bike! Thanks to Citi Bank, taking a bike ride is now easy and enjoyable.

Day 3:
On the last day of my stay, I decided to go right down and try the most talked about brunch in Miami at The Local House. Luckily, The Sense Beach House is the home of this chic restaurant so, grabbing brunch was never easier. I can now see why this brunch is so raved about! Its delicious. If you stop by, make sure to try the banana pancakes (to die for) and pair it up with a mimosa. Not only does The Local House serve brunch, but its also one of the top spots for lunch & dinner.

I wanted to thank the whole staff at The Sense Beach House for organizing this weekend for my photographer and I! It was a great experience taking over the hotels social media channels and letting you all into the fun with us on our own personal platform.
