Hotel Hoppin': Hyatt Place in ATL is a winner

It’s been a while since I’ve stayed at a Hyatt. And for no specific reason either. When I travel, I usually stay at hotels where the conferences I am attending are. It just makes everything so much easier. But every now and then I need a quick (but safe and nice because I do have standards) hotel for a night or so.

Around Orlando: Chevy Pizza Crawl

If you accidentally bit your computer screen trying to get a bite of that yummy pizza, I do apologize. Enticing, isn’t it? Pizza is my total weakness. Even though I have issues with cheese, it’s as if I forget all about them the minute I think about pizza. So when I was invited to host a Pizza Crawl with Chevy, no way was I going to turn that down. I popped a Lactaid, worked out SUPER hard the night before and was ready for the mission.

The challenge…drive around in brand new Chevy vehicles and check out 3 of Orlando’s top pizza places. You KNOW I was down.

INGLOT Cosmetics Opens Studio in Chelsea Market

Y’all know how much I LOVE Inglot. I’ve been bragging about them for several years now. And I love that they have been becoming more widely available. And not just in New York. I’ve heard of stores opening in Las Vegas, Miami and beyond. Keep your eyes peeled as one may be opening up near you.

Katie, one of Clumps’ NYC Reps, headed down to the Chelsea Market opening. She got her make up done and ended up snagging a ton of goodies. Hit the jump to see more.

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.

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.

Hit the jump to see me behind the wheel! Or…wheels.

Around Orlando: Chevy Valentine’s Day Sugar Rush

Your favorite beauty blogger has a massive sweet tooth. I mean, I LIVE for delicious sweets and like to treat myself as often as I can. Last week I was invited to participate in a Chevy Valentine’s Day Sugar Rush event.

I’m sorry…what? I get to ride around in a brand new Chevy Cruze while using OnStar to go from various cookie, candy and ice cream shops in Orlando? Like I really had to think twice about attending. I had a car full of great company and a list of spots to head to and I was ready to go! Guess where we went?

Happy Martin Luther King Day!

I took this picture when I went to Washington D.C. this past summer. I stood on a little plate that indicated that that location is where Martin Luther King stood when he made his “I Have A Dream” speech.

That’s pretty deep, uh?

This day has always had some significance to me. It was never just a day off. Whether I’m in a parade or attend some festivities, this day always gives me a chance to remember our past. And it’s even more so a motivator to work hard in the present so that I can leave footprints for the future.

Happy Martin Luther King Day.

FOTD Friday: Another Day with Make Up For Ever

This past weekend was a pretty busy one for me. In addition to some volunteer activities, I hosted an event for about 15 ladies here in Orlando and I helped where needed at a Bridal Expo.

I had to look *pops tongue* cute for most of the weekend and used my handy dandy…MAKE UP FOR EVER palette!

And by George, the look I cranked out wasn’t half bad. If I do say so myself.
