Florida’s Hidden Gems: St. Petersburg & Clearwater

July 4, 2014

*Special thanks to VISIT FLORIDA for sponsoring today’s post! As always, all opinions are my own*
Downtown St. Petersburg
How Gorgeous is downtown St. Petersburg? Can you imagine waking up in the morning and looking out your window to that view? It honestly looks like a city in Europe!

My Florida vacation has unfortunately come to an end, but not before I got to visit two of the most charming cities I’ve ever laid my eyes on: St. Petersburg and Clearwater. Located in Pinellas County, Florida, St. Petersburg and Clearwater are both booming with culture and character. Between these two cities lies art, beaches, beauty, amazing food and, according to USA Today, 2013’s Best Florida Attraction (no it’s NOT Disney World!)

Four Times Tampa Stole My Heart

July 2, 2014

*This post is sponsored by VISIT FLORIDA, but all opinions are my own. I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be spending this week in sunny Tampa and St.Petersburg/Clearwater, Florida. I am thrilled to share this amazing Florida vacation with you all!*
Things to do in Tampa
This week I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a few days in the gorgeous city of Tampa. Located on the west coast of Florida on Tampa Bay, near the Gulf of Mexico, Tampa is a great destination for adults and children alike. In fact, in 2008, Tampa was ranked as the 5th best outdoor city by Forbes. Even though my time in Tampa was short, there were four things that still managed to steal my heart!

Simply Sinova Takes Miami: Day 2

June 29, 2014

Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel
Miami, you’re AMAZING! This city is so colorful, diverse and full of life! I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. The iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party concluded last night with performances by Neon Trees, Nick Cannon (yes, Nick Cannon), MAGIC! and Jennifer Lopez (aka JLO!)
 
Neon Trees were up first! If you didn’t know, I LOVE Neon Trees! They have such a unique sound and style about them. They opened the second day of the Ultimate Pool Party with their new hit single “Sleeping with a Friend” (which, if you follow my Monday’s Music posts, is one of my most played songs right now!) I’ve got to say Tyler Glenn is an AWESOME human being! He has enough spark and spunkiness to go around! In between each song he would go on a little rant/banter with the audience (we’re soul mates). I really love when artists talk and interact with the crowd, it makes the concert that much better! Neon Trees also sung “Animal,” “Everybody Talks,” and “Love in the 21st Century.” I’m seriously looking forward to seeing Neon Trees in concert again, I HIGHLY recommend it!

Although I’ve been to Florida (mostly Orlando and Kissimmee) a bunch of times, this is my first time visiting the beautiful city of Miami. If you ask me, I couldn’t think of a better way to experience Miami than by staying at the famous Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel and attending a music festival! That music festival is, of course, the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party. This year’s party is bigger than ever with not one, but TWO nights of amazing performances from chart topping artists Jennifer Lopez, Neon Trees, Tiësto, Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea, Lil Jon, and MAGIC! Seven hit artists, two amazing nights, one beautiful city, let the party begin!
