7 Best Beach Reads for Summer 2017
Hello! Happy National Bikini Day!
It’s the summer time in Miami (though it kinda always feels like summer here), and if you’ve seen some of my Instastories or Instagram posts, you know that I’ve been going to Miami Beach almost every weekend. Most times I just have a relaxing day at the beach having fun with adult coloring books, or playing a game of dominoes. The next time I go to the beach, I plan to take a juicy book to sink my teeth into. I found these books, and sharing them with you now!
