Let's face it, 2020 has been less than sweet. So why not treat yourself and your loved ones to some delicious cookies? Introducing one of my favorite Miami-based cookie businesses, Sweet Fortunes. They make the yummiest cookies from fun flavors Birthday Classic to Red Velvet & Oreo. And bonus, they deliver all around Miami, Florida so you don't even have to leave the comfort of your bed and your favorite Netflix show (I recommend Schitts Creek + Grace and Frankie).
Sweet Fortunes brings homemade cookies to you minus the mess in your kitchen. We ordered: Cinnamon Roll, Birthday Blondie, Oreo, and Double Chocolate Chip. My brother, Andrew and Matthew loved the Birthday Blondie the most where I loved the Cinnamon Roll and Oreo most! But trust me you can't go wrong with any of their delicious flavors. Sweet Fortunes is perfect not only for when you want to satisfy your sweet tooth but also for birthdays, feel better, and congrats gifts. And with the holidays just around the corner they will be your go-to for gift giving and to treat your guests with.

2020 has been a crazy year, to say the least. Between adding masks to our outfits and learning to DIY just about everything off of Pinterest, we also have been cooking A LOT at home. I don't know about you all, but cooking at home gets tiring and sometimes I don't want to eat out; I want a home-cooked meal. So I have the solution for you...
My friends at Frankie + Wally's have created ready-to-bake lasagnas to cure you homemade meal blues (minus the mess) just throw it in the oven and add the toppings they provide as you please and enjoy! And trust me when I say you will savor every bite of their lasagnas that I am pretty sure were made in Heaven! They have options too: veggie and meat. My family and I personally ordered the veggie lasagna and it was a HUGE hit! Even my brother who doesn't like cheese loved it (and had seconds!) You can do pick up or they deliver as well. Besides getting a tasty meal you'll love, you will also be supporting a small business! Especially after 2020, I think it has become even more clear that small businesses are the heart and soul of our Miami communities. When you support small businesses you support your neighbors, families, and friends.
Frankie + Wally's is a dinner you need to try! You can order by DM them here or by calling 305.582.8096. Tell them Ash sent you! And then DM me or tag me when you try! Can't wait to see what you all think of this delicious lasagna! As always my DMs are always open and feel free to leave me a comment below. Til' next post, xo!

I have been missing Disney so much! Ever since COVID-19 hit (especially living in one of the hot spots) I am really careful about what I do and where I go. With underlying health conditions aka type one diabetes and the fact I reside with my abuela now, Eric and I decided it wasn't best to go to Disney World right when it opened (insert crying emoji). And while I would give anything to be in the happiest place on earth right now, I know it'll take time before it is safest to return.
My friends and one of my NEW favorite small businesses here in Miami, The Craft House Design, helped me deal with my Disney FOMO by creating me the cutest Toy Story-inspired Stabrucks cup that I love enjoying my ice tea out of (and the occasional Coke Zero of course). It has made bored in the house, WFH (work from home) days happier.
They can create any design or you can choose from their many options from custom tees to face masks, they have tons of options to make your dreams come true. DM them today!
