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.

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?

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: 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.

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?

Around Orlando: Wonderworks, Indoor Theme Park

Most Orlando locals stay far away from the infamous International Drive. But lately I’ve been slightly obsessed with hitting I-Drive to check out some of the restaurants and attractions. And I just knew it was meant to be when Groupon had a deal of discount tickets to Wonderworks.

Hollers! I’ve been eyeing this upside down joint for years. And I finally ventured inside.
