Had such a good time at @metrodiner yesterday!! I got the Pulled Pork Mac Stack, which is half a pound of pulled pork over homestyle mac and cheese on a cornbread batter waffle with maple butter. Best thing ever. They were also really good at catering to food allergies and my mom found something she could eat in the chicken and fries with some veggies. The salad was fresh and flavorful with plenty of dressing, and the onion rings were crispy without any grease. For drinks we
Had fun with the bf at @combatnightmma! Thank you @orlandoliveevents_ole for inviting me to May the Fourth Combat Night, a MMA event with a special Star Wars theme. Sitting up front on the comfy VIP couch seats puts you right up close to the action! The Orlando Live Events Center is right by Winter Park and Altamonte, and they host awesome events like carnivals, car shows, boxing, jiujitsu and MMA. Check out my Instagram Stories for clips of the evening’s matches! 🌟🎉🥊💫 #T
Had a fun time at @bocasgrill! Located in the Dr. Phillips area of Orlando, it brings a taste of South America to the City Beautiful. The deep fried sweet corn with cheese and bacon and cachapa tower were phenomenal, and the towering Nutella churro milkshake was divinely good. They have many different kinds of arepas to choose from, and the Arepa burger, inspired by a cheeseburger, was a favorite dish made with beef, sausage and cheese, topped off with an aioli sauce. I tried
Enjoying the new Chocolate Cherry Cold Brew from @dunkin! The rich chocolatey flavor meshes well with the cherry and enhances the deep flavor of the cold brew. The slow cold brewing process takes twelve hours in small batches, and enhances the flavor of the coffee like a fine wine. Even better, right now a medium is only $2 from 2-6pm! Now is the perfect time to add Dunkin’s new Chocolate Cherry Cold Brew to your afternoon lifestyle. Definitely enjoying this coffee happy hour
Had an amazing time at @hi5pokeandsushi! A one of a kind family owned place that combines Japanese and Hawaiian style and cuisine, they are conveniently located in the IDrive district of Orlando. The Korean BBQ wings are one of their most popular dishes and I can see why, with its incredible flavor and spices. They have a really unique take on nachos with tuna, avocado and spicy sauce over wonton chips, which gave it a signature salty flavor. The tonkotsu ramen is a classic t
The food at @donjuliosmexican is phenomenal! Sitting outside gave such a nice atmosphere. The Mexican street corn was full of flavourful spices, cut by the creamy sauce poured over it, and served grilled and sizzling. The shrimp stuffed avocado was both healthy and delicious, I could eat that every day. In contrast, the fried ice cream was drool worthy and an amazing indulgent treat. Overall, would go again!

The food at @littlegreekleevista is an authentic taste of Greece! You can find classic gyros, baklava, spanakopita, pita and hummus, and other classic dishes. They said that they source some of their ingredients from Tarpon Springs, Florida’s historic Greek town nearby Tampa. It’s one of my favorite less exposed places in Florida, and the food there is always phenomenal, so it makes perfect sense that they are connected! Now you can find a piece of Greece right here in Orland
The food at @sofritolatin is amazing! It’s a Venezuelan place close to Apopka Vineland area by Disney Springs. They have not only authentic Venezuelan food, but also dishes from Cuba, Argentina, and Colombia. Definitely very good. Thank you so much for having me for your food blogger media night!

Who’s excited for Spring Break? Thinking about St. Patty’s Day weekend with my man. We had some jacuzzi time featuring my @leus beach towel, made it back to CityWalk and did mini golf and donuts! How was your St. Patrick’s Day?

Captain Marvel opens today! I was invited to a special pre-release screening in IMAX, and it definitely exceeded expectations! I don't want to give away any spoilers, but Marvel fans will be pleased with this movie. At first I was a little worried that such a strong female character would be portrayed as a caricature, or be sexualized, or have some kind of makeover montage scene, but it was none of the above. Carol Danvers is a three dimensional American girl, with a matter o
Inspired by international street food, the Seven Seas Food Festival lets you sip and sample delicious selections from all around the world. The Brazilian, Asian and Caribbean stations all had food and drink that I would love to go back and try, such as bacon wrapped plantains, bao bun sandwiches or Jamaican patties. There are also Italian, Pacific, American and Vegan stations with a medley of good selections. The Frozen Lagoon Punch was good and very sweet. It reminded me of
Kiss Colors left my hair feeling even healthier than before! Their formula has collagen, aloe vera water, keratin, argan oil and other amazing ingredients to nourish your hair. In my experience as a beauty school graduate, this product is good! I’ve been wanting to go pink for a long time now, and I’ve got so many compliments on my new look! I chose the Pink Petal and Rose Gold colors, they also have blue, purple and even green to choose from. It was amazingly easy to apply.
Inside of the Animal Kingdom Lodge is Sanaa, an African restaurant with flavors of India. In parts of Africa, especially on the southeastern side, many people have moved there from India. They brought their traditions and food culture with them, and in the cuisine of modern Africa you experience a syncretization of traditional African foods, Indian food, and Afrikaans and English traditions. My mom and I ordered the Indian Bread Service, which features nine different spreads
Some of the #otownbloggersquad had an amazing time at the #sipandmingle conference! It was run by the amazing Simple and Pretty Co. and TaraMetBlog. It was wonderful to see them again, as I had met them on my Naples trip a few months ago. There were bloggers from all across the state at the event, including Tampa, Naples, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale and other remote places in scenic Florida. The event was hosted at Marriott, and sponsored by brands such as Land’s End, Wine Societ
More fun at Disney After Hours, this time at Hollywood Studios! It was my first time visiting Toy Story Land, because every time I had checked the Disney Parks app the wait time had been at least 80 minutes! At After Hours it was only 5 minutes 😱😍 It was so much fun! The classic Slinky Dog Dash roller coaster, the Alien Swirling Saucers, and a ride I had never seen on a blog or vlog called Toy Story Mania. It’s a 4D interactive game where the cart moves you around to differ
Thank you so much to Disney for inviting me to Disney After Hours as media! The first event was at Animal Kingdom and there was only a 5 minute wait for Pandora! When we got to the park before it closed for regular hours there was a 160 minute wait for the Pandora ride Flight of Passage. My boyfriend and I rode it twice! It’s so beautiful how the Tree of Life in the center of the park lights up at night, and the Rivers of Light show was as beautiful as ever! Everything was ma
Nutcracker season is starting soon! The holiday ballet is a classic audience favorite featuring an Alice in Wonderland style story about a little girl named Maria who is given a nutcracker doll by her mysterious Uncle Drosselmeyer. The nutcracker comes to life and she helps him and his army of toy soldiers battle the evil Rat King and his legion of minion rats. After the battle he turns into a prince who brings her to his magical kingdom, the Land of the Sweets.I will be in t
I went to a makeup class party at the Sephora at Disney Springs. The event was organized by Ireland Frost and it was awesome to finally meet her in person. A bunch of the @orlandofashionbloggers also showed up and we had a great time learning different techniques and trying some good products by brands like Tarte and Too Faced. I definitely learned how to layer eyeshadow better and do my brows in the more three dimensional brush strokes style, rather than having it look like
The holidays are coming up, and now is the time to plan for gift ideas! For the man in your life, Seki Edge has a men’s grooming kit crafted in the mountains of Japan with the knowledge of samurai sword makers. As seen in Glamour, Marie Claire and Lucky. 🎁👦🏻🎉

This past weekend I was invited to the Dîner en Blanc. A crew of the @orlandofashionbloggers were invited as media to cover the event. It's a secret dinner party event where everyone dresses up in white. The event began thirty years ago in Paris and has grown into a worldwide phenomenon. Tiffany D Brown and The Fashionable Nurse were also there, it was so good to meet them in person! Everyone at the event brings their own tables, plates, food and drinks. The event provides th
