Iron Fork #Priceless #Miami Fun Culinary Event Thanks To @Mastercard #MC

 What a great idea to combine arts with a culinary experience called Iron Fork. All the action started at the beautiful Adrienne Arsht Center for the performing arts for the sixth annual Iron Fork. Before I continue with my story, required to share that I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client. Thanks to MasterCard Priceless Miami website, we had access to the VIP package which included 1 hour early entrance with unlimited restaurant sampling from 45+ Miami fine restaurants. Truly a great way to get ahead of the crowds and enjoy sometime to meet the chefs of the restaurants. There is so much more you can do and take advantage of MasterCard special offers! At the entrance we were happy to meet Isaac Pineira from Downtown Miami who was sharing all the great activities this organization is creating for Miami and he also shared that he was following us on Twitter YaY! From this stop we stumbled across MasterCard fantastic suite which had delicacies from Morton’s The Steakhouse and the trendy French restaurant Bâoli, We also met a young lady that was part of a metal type of display sharing tasting of their product: BestIceCreamOfMiami.com The VIP section was inside the main theatre room and it was really pleasant that they featured a piece of an actual show taking place at the performing arts center in this case, “Legally Blonde”. They also had friendly waiters coming by constantly with delicious appetizers as well as several bar stations with alcohol from Bacardi, Wines of Chile and one of my favorite beers Stella Artois. Glad that we had walked to the arts center which meant no need to assign a designated driver, as we could happily walk back home ☺ Some of the other restaurants we got to enjoy included: MPP Brickell, El Chamán, The Local House, Charles Street, Red, Fish Fish, Edge Steak & Bar, Terraza at Shore Club, Sweet Times. We tried to get to as many as possible, but the crowds were getting bigger and bigger, and there is just so much you can eat and drink in two hours lol! You are invited to visit Priceless Miami with exclusive offers for MasterCard cardholders. Dreaming about your spa day, well how about taking advantage of MasterCard special offers during the month of August or if you are shopping at Miami Dolphin Mall you will get a gift when you spend $250 or more. If you did not have a chance to check out my last...

Travel Like A Pro

Travel Like A Pro

 By Leila Chang Ripich:  Remember the days of glamorous travel? I used to work for a subsidiary of Eastern Airlines (OK I’m kind of giving away my age because the airline is not even around anymore) and we had free travel perks. One of the rules was you had to dress professionally in order to board the airplane. Those days are over but you can still travel in style. Here are a few tips, tricks and resources to have you traveling like a pro whether you are the occasional flyer or a weekly traveler. The first order of business is packing. I personally think I’m pretty good at it, but that’s because I don’t leave anything to chance.  I have a packing checklist with categories for all my essentials like – undergarments, sleepwear, chargers, perfume, you get the idea. That way even if you are packing quickly there’s less of a chance for you to forget something. One of my favorite resources is www.RealSimple.com. They have a great packing checklist that you can tailor to fit your needs and a video on how to pack a suitcase to maximize space and ensure that clothes arrive wrinkle free. Another one of my favorite resources is www.TheContainerStore.com. Not only do they have every item you can think of to make even the most frazzled traveler an organized one, they even give in-store demos on how to pack like a pro. Do you hate hauling your luggage to the airport and then having to fight the hordes at the carousel? Send it ahead! Companies like www.LuggageFree.com offer door-to-door luggage service at prices ranging from $2.00 – $5.50 per pound. Now that’s a luxury. Here’s another luxury for the discerning traveler – www.pb-travel.com offers items like cashmere throws, pillows and eye masks. Now that’s traveling in style. They also offer fleece and less expensive alternatives because let’s face it, who wants to use the airline provided blankets and pillows – YUCK! Finally here’s one of my personal travel tips. I always email myself a copy of my driver’s license and passport before I leave for a trip. That way if they get lost or stolen (God forbid) I can always print them out. I also leave it with a trusted family member who can email it to me in case my iPhone and iPad are unavailable. My best advice is give yourself enough time to make your flight, breathe and relax!
