Orlando Event: Fashion Quest 2012!

For a loooooong time, I didn’t think Orlando was considered “cool” when it came to beauty and fashion events. Well, scoot over Mickey because in a few years, Orlando will be known for more than just the home of Walt Disney World. If you’re in the Orlando area and looking for something fun to do this upcoming weekend, join me at Fashion Quest.

I’ll be on the scene to cover the event and hobnob with the many talented beauty and fashion folx of the greater Orlando area.

For more information, visit the event website.

Oh! And on Saturday, March 10th, a few of us beauty beauty bloggers (okay…more like 20) will be getting together for a meet-n-greet and swap. If you’re in Orlando and would like to join us, let me know at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

See. I do have a social life off of the internet. 8)

 

Food Yum: Boston Market for lunch

Any fans of Boston Market? On days when Mama Clumps didn’t feel like cooking, Boston Market was always an option for my sister and I. After all, how many fast food joints can you find that DOESN’T serve burgers and fries? So as far as a healthier alternative, B.Market is definitely a better one.  Two of my co-workers wanted to grab some lunch and considering it’s a serious rarity that I don’t bring my own lunch, I decided to tag along.

Not a bad price for lunch, uh?

Yummers!

Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza giveaway!

If y’all haven’t noticed already, I’m not JUST a beauty blogger. In fact, sometimes I wonder if I should even call myself that anymore.  I feel like “lifestyle blogger” is more fitting.. Don’t get me wrong, Clumps of Mascara will always be Beauty 1st, but the world is huge. And I love sharing photography, events, food and total randomness with you guys.

That said, who wants free pizza?

Beauty basket ‘o deals from Coupons.com

Y’all know me. I love saving a  buck or two. I’m a drugstore beauty kind of girl who occasionally likes to splurge on the higher-end goods. And occasionally really means once a month tops. As much as I love beauty products, I’d prefer not to deplete my savings account trying to buy a lipgloss. If you’re a penny pinchin’ gal like me, a site like Coupons.com will be your best friend. And I’m not even kidding.

Try and guess how much this beauty basket cost. Seriously….guess.

20+ Years of Lovin’ Disney

I’m the biggest Disney fan ever. And I do mean ever. If a Disney movie came out in the 90’s, chances are I know all of the words to the songs. I’ve been to both Disney World in Florida and Disney Land in California. I love Disney so much that I’m considering getting married (you know, after the whole proposal thing) at the Disney Wedding Pavilion. I recently went to Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios and took a few pictures.

Hit the jump, fellow Disney lovers!

Shellac Update

2 weeks passed and as promised I am giving y’all an update on my experience with the gel nail treatment. If you missed my initial post, check it out here.

After 2 weeks the nails were STILL shinning so as far as staying glossy and wet-looking, Shellac nails deliver. And that’s not all…

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.

Food Yum: Lunch at CRAVE

It may look like it but I promise I don’t eat out THAT much. I prepare most, if not all of my lunches before I head to work and for dinner…I usually wing it.

But I enjoy exploring some of Orlando’s restaurants and sharin’ them with y’all. Especially with Orlando being a hot tourist spot. If you’ve never been, you should definitely start planning a family trip or getaway with the girls. I’ve been to CRAVE 2 or 3 times before and have never been disappointed. I mean…just look at how delicious this pasta looks.
