Power Napping at The Spa at the Miami Beach Edition

{The Spa at the Miami Beach Edition} When the Spa at the Miami Beach Edition invites you to come for a mid-week treatment, you say yes. For several reasons: 1) Mid-week means there’s still week to go. 2) Robe life is living your best life. 3) This was my first time there. 4) A little something called the “power nap.” First off, the spa is beautiful.
