  2. Vlad and I are fortunate to have a large platform with an amazing community of handbag loving people who join us daily from across the globe. We want to be a part of the fix to end systematic racism, both conscious and unconscious. We are taking steps, both personally and professionally, to be better allies for the Black community. You can read more of my thoughts on PurseBlog and discover a great roundup of Black-owned handbag brands as well.

    As our forums are shopping-focused, read about the 15 Percent Pledge and consider signing the petition to call on major retailers to pledge 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses. Please reach out to me directly if there is something you feel I could do differently on our forums to be a better ally and make this forum a welcoming community for all.

    If you want to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a comprehensive document with resources on books for kids, podcasts, articles, videos and more.

  1. Im planning my Spring Break Trip which will be March 9th - March 15th. Originally my friends and I decided on going to Miami for Spring Break, but it kept changing. So now we have finally decided that Miami is definitely where we want to go, the only problem is we looked today and the places that we want are booked. The other option we have for Florida is Orlando. The problem with that is that some of the girls feel that Orlando is not a Spring Break vacation but a family vacation. Do you guys believe that Orlando is more for the family? Also what other places are good for Spring Break? Btw we are college sophomores ages 19 and 20.

    Thanks!
     
  2. I took my kids to DisneyWorld last year for Spring Break. There are a lot of families, but there were also lots of people your age. One thing about going to the parks, it is very expensive. I don't know if that is a concern. There is no beach in Orlando (some people don't relize that). We also visited my Dad in Naples. While Naples is not a Spring Break party town, near by Ft. Myers Beach is. Another fun place is Key West. Have you looked at Ft. Lauderdale or West Palm Beach? Both are close to Miami. We'll be in Naples and Key West at the end of March.
     
  3. Miami is definately where you should go. There are a million hotels on Collins ave (south beach) I used to stay at the Days Inn on 16th street and Collins.. it was $80 a night and right on the beach!
    Also there are many hotels a little north or in Miami proper and car rentals are very reasonable...
     
  4. okay so I checked the rates for those days and its more than when I stayed there three years ago! (I was by myself in a single room) but for a double room (4 ppl) it is $145 a night.. Still not bad!! Its literally RIGHT on the ocean..actually built in front of the Setai (the new $1000/nt place) and blocks its beach access. Lol..
    just google "Days Inn South Beach"
     
  5. thanks so much! Were hoping that we can get in on Miami. Were using my parents timeshare so it would be $139 for the entire week and we'll just split the cost between 4 people.
