Saying Goodbye

When we started Lipstick Lifestyle over a year ago, it was our goal to bring you, our amazing readers, the very best of fashion, home, travel and technology. Due to the current economic climate, it has unfortunately made it impossible for us to continue delivering all you’ve come to expect from us here. It is with great sadness that we say goodbye.

We are happy to share with you that we will be adding fashion, travel and technology to our sister site, www.LipstickPowderNPaint.com, and we hope that you will visit regularly.

Thank you for your support and Happy Holidays.

The Top 5 Most Pet Friendly Hotels in Miami

    Vacations are meant to be a time to relax, but for pet lovers everywhere, finding a place to leave your four-legged friend can add a touch of unwanted stress to your travels.

    Westin-heavenly-dog-bed

      For those traveling to Miami, Oyster Hotel Reviews has compiled a list of the top five pet friendly resorts that go above and beyond to ensure 100 percent pet satisfaction. Amenities include pampering services, pet beds, and which hotels have off-limit areas and/or additional fees.

        1. EPIC HOTEL (Downtown)
        The Epic is a pro at pampering - doggie mats, bowls, placemats, and Yip-Yap breath-mints come standard in the rooms for guests traveling with dogs. Pets can also get pedicures, a shampoo, toys, and one-hour daily walks through the Epic Pet Getaway package.

        2. Loews Miami Beach Hotel (South Beach)
        Standard amenities include a pet tag, bowl and treats. In case you forget anything, leashes, collars, beds, scratching posts, pooper-scoopers, litter boxes, catnip and rawhide bones can be requested. There’s even a pet room service menu with gourmet treats, and generously, no pet weight limit.

        3. Mandarin Oriental Hotel (Downtown)
        The Mandarin makes the list because of its over the top Marley & Me Miami Dog Days package, created in honor in The Mandarin’s involvement in the filming of the movie. It costs a pretty penny, but includes a training date with a certified dog trainer, a play date with a pet butler and a copy of the book Marley & Me by Josh Grogan.

        4. Mayfair Hotel & Spa (Coral Gables and Coconut Grove)
        A pet-friendly hotel that caters to couples! If you want a romantic getaway, but still can’t imagine leaving your pets behind, the Mayfair’s Very Important Pets program will provide them with pet beds, lounging mats, cookies and water bowls with bottled water.

        5. The Westin Colonnade, Coral Gables (Coral Gables and Coconut Grove)
        For anyone that’s ever experienced a night’s sleep in the Westin’s coma inducing Heavenly Beds, they’ll understand why we couldn’t leave the Westin Colonnade off the list. They make a Heavenly Dog Bed! We’re guessing your pooch will never sleep so soundly.

        Switch Up

        new-lulu-strap-on-shoe-footFlip-flops are a summer staple and we all have a few pairs in the closet, but none are as versatile as Switchflops. These customizable sandals allow you to pick from one of three different soles and change the look with over 70 colourful straps. It is really easy to match your shoes with your outfit or your mood.

        High style doesn’t necessarily mean high maintenance. What we love about these cute slip-ons is that to wash them all you have to do is remove the straps and pop them in the laundry machine. Let them air dry on their own, and reattach the straps. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
