Procrastination is a disease that prays on the innocent worldwide but here in Miami, it plagues its victims at another level. Miami is a place where arriving on time means pulling up at least an hour late. It’s a place where everyone subscribes to “why get done today what can be done maÃ±ana“.Â And, it’s a place where holiday shopping begins only a few days before the holidays.
Blame your half finished shopping list on the lack of snow or your busy social calendar this month – we don’t judge. As of Friday we were on the same boat so, on the contrary, we totally sympathize. Better yet, we come to you with a solution for your holiday hitch: an afternoon at The Falls.
We’ve mentioned before that we’re not mall people, but there’s just something about The Falls that draws us in. Plus, The Falls has over 100 stores so it is the perfect place to check off everyone on your list in one fell swoop. Yesterday, we invited mom to spend some quality time with us at The Falls so we could tackle our Christmas lists together.
We began with a delicious lunch at Brio Tuscan Grille to fuel up for an intensive shopping sesh. Once fed, we store-hopped our way to the other end of the mall, stopping at Vera Bradley and L’Occitane for fail-proof stocking stuffers. We also detoured into PacSun to pick up our New Year’s outfit and into Macy’s for a serious beauty upgrade courtesy of the talented ladies at the MAC counter. After a mere six hours, we headed home fed, pampered, and with the satisfaction that our holiday shopping is done.
If you’re in need of a gifting Hail Mary, check out our shopping diary below to see how crossing everyone off your list can be easy and fun at The Falls!
