A little bio about StarBurstJewels:
SBJ was created by ZengSha, a college student that loves jewelry. She started making jewelry for her friends and family but strangers on the street wanted to know where she got her necklaces and bracelets so she started her very own Etsy shop. She's been making jewelry for 4 years and is loving it. The most important thing about her shop is that everything is one-of-a-kind and handmade. You can not find another piece like it.

Follow her for updates and special promotions:

Remember to enter in the drawing before April 4th 11:59PM EST.

Good Luck!

"Chinatown" in Miami 101

Miami is one the few places in the U.S. that does not have a "Chinatown-Chinatown". There's not central area of "Asian" stuff to call "Chinatown". It's sad. I've lived here for over 13 years and have to drive so far for a decent Asian Market.

Everything in Miami is so spread out. To get to my favorite Japanese restaurant, Hiro's Yakko-San, I have to drive about 45 minutes north to North Miami Beach. On top of that, the big markets where I can get all my Chinese ingredients is about.... an hour drive north from my house. Normally, a trip up north takes about a day with shopping and dinner at my favorite places.

Here are some restaurants that I will be blogging about real soon.
Pho Thang (Vietnamese) 9539 SW 160 ST
Hiro's Yakko-San (Japanese) 3881 NE 163 ST
Chang's (Chinese) 2404 SW 107 AVE
R.O.K. (Korean) 4954 North University Drive
Tani Thai (Thai) 12269 S Dixie Hwy

These are a few of my favorite places to eat!! If you're around these areas, you must try it out!!

Reviews are coming real soon....
