Central Florida fair and…donut burgers?

Soooo, I went to the fair this past weekend and uh…it was an interesting experience. I think I’ve become such a snob. The fair used to be all about greasy food, rides that were intended to make you barf and games made you spend all of your money. And it’s still that. Except now…it bothers me. Take this for example…

W.T.F is that? Hit the jump to see some of the other interesting things I saw at the fair.

5 Crazy Things I Did Over The Weekend

In attempts to save money, I have been spending a great deal of my weekends IN Orlando. The old B would gas up the car and head down to Miami just about two times a month. But with gas prices hittin’ $3.40 *faints* I have been finding some things to do here in the city I live in. Hence why I’ve voluntarily turned myself into a mini-restaurant and attractions around Orlando blogger.

This weekend has already been off to a grand ole’ time. Check out FIVE crazy things that I’ve done or seen.

#1 Took pictures of Michael Jordan’s back at Vines Bar & Grille.

Completely random, right? Yes, I knew his son attended the University of Central Florida here in Orlando, but who knew he would drop in at the same restaurant that I was dining at and sit RIGHT across from me?

Got a smart phone? Love Macy’s?

If you’ve answered yes to both questions, then I’ve got somethin’ for you…

By the way, the above is meant to be said in a cheesy game show host voice. Kind of like Allen Ludden in Card Sharks. LOVED that show.

What was I talkin’ about again? Ah yesss…Macy’s has just won my heart. Aside from being a beauty girl, I’m a tech-y geek beyond belief. Imagine my surprise when I found out that Macy’s will be introducing personalized QR codes that will deliver videos directly to your phone. Don’t believe me? Use the barcode scanner on your phone to scan the image below.

The codes will give viewers an inside peek of trends and collections as well as give behind-the-scenes looks at brands and designers. Including Bobbi Brown and one of my favorite brands I.N.C. Keep an eye out for these special stars. They are spotted throughout Macy’s stories nationwide. Click here for additional deets.

The Day I Drove a Camaro at Main Street in Motion

Yep, I did! I had the awesome opportunity of attending a Main Street in Motion event at Epcot where I had rows of rows of cars just waiting for ME to drive. More than 70 to be exact. While I checked out Chevy’s newest electric car and drove a Yukon Denali Hybrid and lusted over the massive Sierra HD, my heart was really with the lime green Camaro.

Food Yum: My Open Letter to Cheese

Dear Cheese,

Yo! What’s up, homie? Can I be honest? I wanted to write this letter to you to express how I’m feelin’ about you. Simply put….I miss you. I miss having you in my life. I’m not sure when and why we stopped being friends but I’m really starting to take it personally. Why must you abuse me the way you do? Why do our meetings always end with me being doubled over in pain? It’s just not fair. Especially when you seem to be so prevalent in a lot of my favorite dishes. And especially since you come in so many variations. It’s just not right. Granted I still love a good piece of cheese pizza. But it comes with a price. And it ain’t pretty.

So I’m asking you…can we call a truce? Please? Think it over. In the meantime, I’ll be staring aimlessly at your siblings at the Whole Foods in Phillips Crossing.

Love you always,

Around Orlando: Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

Guess who went to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge for the first time? Meeeee! As a Florida native, I’ve spent a lot at the Disney theme parks. And I am pleased to announce that they are just as much fun as an adult as they were when I was a kid. That doesn’t say much coming from a big kid like myself but humor me, will ya?

Even visiting one of the many gorgeous Disney resorts is an experience. I mean, where else can you go take a peek outside of your hotel room and see giraffes only a few feet from you?

Hit the jump to see why you may want to consider booking your next family trip at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Food Yum: Navitas Naturals Organic Acai powder & lip balm

Are you giving me a side eye right now? Wait, let me explain. Y’all already know about my green smoothie obsession. And for almost a year I’ve been sticking with the same ingredients; kale, spinach, bananas, berries, apples, mango, peaches and nut milks. But I’ve been wanting to switch it up a bit by incorporating some other ingredients.

Insert acai powder.

And you better say her name right. It’s ah-sigh-EE. Hit the jump to see the benefits of this superfruit.
