Amber Love Bond has been in love with Brickell since her first high school internship (before there was even a nearby Starbucks), and has refused to leave ever since - 12 years and counting! You can find her roaming the streets of our gorgeous city looking for the next hotspot or exciting event to attend, tasting (and obsessing over) craft cocktails, drooling over and taking pictures of the best dish at every restaurant, and discovering new breathtaking places to take in the Brickell views. When she's not hopping around town, she's probably in her kitchen making yummy Nutella filled treats and custom cakes. Amber is a self-taught baker and owner of Cakes by Amber Love, as well as the Dessert Expert and Contributor for MIAbites - if you ever need any recommendations, especially food - don't hesitate to ask!
