Hi Dolls,
Why didn't you tell me how clutch Target is?  I mean, I know it has been around for ages and I've been in there plenty of times, but it wasn't until recently that I realized how magical of a place it truly is.  I know they do the bomb collabs with high end-brands and they have that amazing $1 section in the front of the store but guys...I've really been sleeping on Tar-Jay!  
It was a slow and steady courtship.  First I'd visit for greeting cards because Target has such an amazing selection for just about every occasion.   As our relationship progressed, I ventured over to the home goods section because Target always seemed to have the new and contemporary pieces I was seeking for my home.  While there, I'd stop by the beauty section and throw all my coins at it!  I was later  introduced to the shoes and accessories and became smittened!  I fell head over heels when I discovered cart wheel and the sales rack in the women's clothing section of the store.  Target is now BAE!
I know, I know, you're probably like "Trice, seriously?  You are so late." and I get it but sometimes the love you need is right up under your nose and you miss it wasting time at the mall.  Haha!  But in all seriousness, when I found the exact sun hat I paid dang near $34 for at a different store last summer, in Target,  for $3 bucks, and my new favorite sundress for $8, I haven't turned back.

So why am I going on and on about Target?  Well, because of the aforementioned and because my new favorite skirt, that I'm rocking in this blog post, came from Target and I got it on sale for a whopping $5 bucks!  It was originally $30, it was marked down a couple times, then there was an additional 20% off with the cart wheel app!  Ending price, $4.98 plus tax!  I'll take it!
I love that this skirt is ruffled, asymmetrical, black and white striped, and that it hugs all of my curves perfectly!
It's starting to warm up, or shall I say "heat" up, here in Florida and if you know anything about me, you know I'm all about showing off these shoulders honey!  This off-one shoulder top was also a steal from a quick run to DD's Discounts!  I believe it also cost $4 bucks!
You don't have to spend an arm and a leg for a cute, and simple summer look!  My ShoeDazzle heels and fav Conscious Statement earrings cost the most but the look was well under $50 and it's super cute!  I'm all about a bargain look!
So tell me the truth...do you love Target too?  How long have you been feeling this way?  Are there any others bits of insight you can provide me with to help heighten this new found love of mine?  Do tell!  Hahaha!  
As always, thanks so much for stopping by!  You all rock my socks!  Kinda like how Target has been lately!  
Have a great week!

I Think I'm In Love....with Target

Hi Dolls, 
We all have our go-to restaurants and usually they're our go-to because we can always count on them to have exactly what we're looking for.  At least, that's the case for me.  I do, however, love it when restaurants add new items to their menu, along with fan favorites!  Applebee's has always kept up that element of surprise by providing their patrons with new menu items through out the seasons.  I am loving the Bigger and Bolder Grill Combos that are new to the menu!  Right in time for summer, we can now enjoy a delicious and filling meal, choosing from five big and bold combinations, with some of your favorite sides, for as low as $12.99! 

I recently stopped in with my bestie to try a few things from the new Bigger, Bolder Grill Combos and we had a wonderful time! Our host, Jason, was so delightful and so was our lovely waitress (who's name I can't remember..so sorry!).  They made our dining experience enjoyable which is always appreciated.  They were very attentive and provided us with great recommendations.  All though there are a few new appetizers on the menu like the Brisket Quesadillas, we had to start with my all time favorite appetizer, the Chicken Wonton Tacos!  Those things are crack!  I'm so happy they are a staple on the Applebee's menu!  I'd be so sad if they ever took them away!
Applebee's Bigger & Bolder Grill Combo's
As I mentioned earlier, we stopped in specifically to try some of the new Bigger and Bolder Combos, so for our main entrees, that's what we enjoyed!
Applebee's Bigger and Bolder 1/2 Baby Back Ribs w/ Grilled Whiskey Chicken Breast Combo
I decided to go with the 1/2 Rack Baby Back Ribs with Grilled Whiskey Chicken Breast.  All of these combos come with a standard serving of broccoli, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, and onion tanglers.  They were great compliments to the dish, especially the onion tanglers.  The broccoli was prepared just like I like, with a little crunch!  The ribs were super tender and I really enjoyed the Whiskey BBQ sauce on both the chicken and ribs.  I'd definitely order this dish again.
Applebee's Bigger and Bolder Grilled Shrimp Skewer, Crispy Shrimp, and Top Sirloin Combo
Krystle ordered the Grilled Shrimp Skewer, Crispy Shrimp, and 6 oz. USDA Select Top Sirloin.  Of course I tasted her food and though it was all good, my favorite were the crispy shrimp!  They were juicy, plump,and flavorful!  She enjoyed everything as well!  There was nothing left on either of our plates by the time we got through everything!  
#ConfessionsofTwoGreedyGirls   
Applebee's Frozen Lemonade
I almost forgot to mention that the Frozen Lemonades are also new to menu and are the perfect refresher in this Florida heat!  We tried the Mango and the Wild Berry flavors and they were delicious!  We jokingly mentioned they should be spiked but in all seriousness, these would make bomb frozen cocktails!

Hi Lovelies,
I've been living in Jacksonville for a little over 10 years now and it's great to still be able to discover new things about the city, year in and year out!  I can definitely thank blogging for taking me out of my comfort zone and forcing me to get out and learn more about the city I live in.  I have always known about the Budweiser Brewery, as it's literally a couple of minutes up the street from my house, but I'd never ventured out to it.  At least not until recently!  I was invited out to the Budweiser Factory for a private meet and greet with the beautiful Clydesdales who were visiting the Jacksonville location for the week!  I've seen them on television, have always admired how beautiful they are, but have never seen them in person.  I was definitely excited to learn that I'd be getting up close and personal with these beauties!  I grabbed my friend Yuri, and we made our way out to Anheuser-Busch!

By the time we got there, we had just missed the last tour of the brewery so we'll definitely be making our way back for that in the near future.  We were, however, just in time to meet the Clydesdales!  The full hitch was there and they were definitely larger than life!
 This handsome fella was Jack, the oldest of the hitch at 10 years old.  I was baffled at how large they are in person.  These pictures really don't do these horses any justice because they are quite massive animals.  
Larry they handler, gave us an ear full about the history of the Clydesdales and a pretty descriptive run down of their day to day activities!  Of course over the years, they've been breeded to be as large and strong as they are.  Although Jack was huge, he was as sweet as can be.
You can see here how he just rested his cute head on my shoulder!  In the second picture he started munching a little bit and I was like "Hold up Jack!" LOL!  Overall, a total gentleman!
 There were a total of 10 Clydesdales on the hitch and each of them varied in sizes with the largest coming in at a whopping 2000 pounds!  We were told that they eat two of these bushels of hay a day and drink up to 20 gallons of water a day.
All of the horses that travel are males and the horse shoes are the size of small dinner plates!  
It was definitely a ton of fun learning about them and Larry was a delight and the perfect person to answer all of the questions we had for him!
 If you see this, "Hi Larry!  You were great!".
In case anyone was wondering, I got this super cute jumper from Target last week!  Guys...Target has some serious sales!  I have been totally asleep on how awesome Target is!  The chambray wedges came from there as well!
Have you ever seen Clydesdales up close and personal?  If not you should check out the Budweiser website to find out when they'll be in a city near you!  It would be a treat for yourself and especially if you have children!  I'm thankful for Budweiser for reaching out and giving me the opportunity to do the same.  
As always thanks so much for stopping by!  
We're half way done with the week!

The Budweiser Clydesdales come to Jacksonville

Hi Lovelies,

Hi Dolls, 
Wanna know what this monstrosity of a milk shake is all about?  Of course you do, but you'll have to read to the end.  I promise to tell you all about it but I have to share the healthier options first!  
I recently had the pleasure of visiting the fairly new Juice Tap and I was blown away by everything they had to offer from ambiance all the way down to menu items.  They are locally owned, the food is locally sourced, and they are dedicated to providing the freshest of juices, smoothies, and bowls.  
  As an adult, walking into Juice Tap gave me the same feeling as I had walking into a candy store or ice cream parlor as a child. It sort of reminds me of a healthy candy store.  There are loads of fresh fruit hanging out!
Now don't get me wrong, they're definitely in the business of providing you with indulgent options as well so as you can see, all of our favorite candy bars are in the building as well.  
So let's get to what we had!  I went to Juice Tap with a few of my foodie friends and they sort of went all out for us!  We started with a smoothie bowl called The Supreme and let me tell you, it was true to its name.
This bowl consisted of a mixture of different bases including pitaya, peanut butter, and chia flax seed pudding, which was my favorite.   As you can see, it was loaded with fruit!  One thing I really love about Juice Tap is that they don't use added sugars or syrups so the sweetness you get is from the fruit, juices, and an occasional helping of Nutella!
I'm not even gonna front, this bowl was so massive, I didn't know how to get into it!  It looked like an edible arrangement.  Once I figured it out, I was blown away at how yummy it was!  Whoever said, healthy is boring, knows nothing about good food!  It was incredibly filling and tasty!
We were given the Darth Vader Acai bowl to sample next!   It was May 4th so it was only right!  So this bowl was quite interesting.  It consisted of Nutella, Banana, Strawberries. Peanut Butter,  Almond Milk, Almonds, and Charcoal...yes Charcoal.  I never realized charcoal could be edible and I never knew it had health benefits but in an activated form, it is good for digestive and oral health.  Hey,  you learn something new everyday.  I personally don't care for the texture but I still enjoyed the fruit and Nutella from this dish.
Besides the delicious bowls and smothies, Juice Tap also serves toasts, salads, detox juices, health shots, lemonades, and FREAK SHAKES!  I don't know if these massive shake creations originated in New York or Chicago, or wherever, but ladies and gentlemen, we have them in Jacksonville, Florida now!  You can get a monstrosity of a shake at Juice Tap!  This is the Unicorn Dream Shake!  I affectionately call it the DiabEEtus!  With everything it's topped with from cotton candy to pixie stix, three scoops of ice cream with the cones, just to name a few, you would not only consume all of the recommended calories for two days, but your blood sugar would be through the roof!  Nevertheless, if you have 10 friends to share it with, I say go for it! You only live once!
The next time you're in the mood for a healthy place that serves real fruit smoothies and bowls, or if you're in the mood to blow all of your weeks calories for a shake, head on over to Juice Tap!  They seriously are delicious.  The service is awesome and the atmosphere is friendly and inviting.  You'll enjoy your food experience there!  
So of the three items I mentioned, which one would you choose?  Let me know in the comments below and as always, thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Dolls,
It's that time of year!  The sun is out earlier and sticking around longer, my students are testing their behinds off, which means school is almost over, and The Players Championship is happening next week from May 8-13th!  If you're familiar with The PGA Tour, you know that every year, right here in Ponte Vedra,  TPC Sawgrass hosts The Players Championship.  This year I had the pleasure of attending The Taste of The Players to get a little sneak peek into what will be served at the week long golfing extravaganza!  If you plan on attending, there is no reason you'll have to leave with an empty stomach!
 There is no secret that BBQ is popular in the south.  People love the stuff and this year, you can bet your good hard-earned money, that barbecue will be abundantly accessible at The Players!  4-Rivers Smokehouse got the party started with this amazing looking concoction!  This is the delicious 6-shooter which only has 6 ingredients including:  Baked cheese grits topped with pulled pork, coleslaw, pickles, jalepenos, and BBQ sauce.  It was very tasty and very filling!   If you plan to attend The Players, you can find the 6-shooter at Palm Valley Village, 9th green and at the Greenside Lounge, 18th green!
How much fun could one possibly have without a great cocktail to sip on?!?!?  Ok...so you can have plenty of fun with out an alcoholic beverage, it's just more fun with one! Anywho, the drink for this years Player's Championship is the Sawgrass Splash!  Made with Grey Goose, various citrus juices, and simple syrup, this drink is super light and refreshing.  So much so that you'll definitely need to pay attention to how many you consume because it's a "Creep Up On Ya" kind of drink!  
If wine is your thing, look for the William Hill Estate Winery.  They are the official wine of the PGA Tour and will be pouring up Chardonnay and Cab near the Wine and Dine on 9, Palm Valley Village, and The Wine Lounge.
 TACOS ON 12!!!
TacoLu will be in the place with their delicious shrimp soft tacos!  My favorite part about this taco is the spicy sauce it's topped with. 
  It's full of succulent shrimp and this spicy sauce and a scallion slaw...SO GOOD!
I'm glad they decided not to do "Fried" shrimp tacos.  It is a golf tournament with minimal shade and fried foods just don't mix well with the heat! 
Mojo Kitchen had some of my favorite dishes for the event!  Have you ever had their brisket burnt ends?!?!  Bruh!!! 
 They will also have their pulled pork sliders as well as their signature, Players only, smoked turkey wrap.  They mentioned that it's a hit for the Players because its cool, light, and more of a healthier option. They also have jerk wings on the menu that are the bomb! They were my favorite for the tasting!
As I mentioned earlier, BBQ is huge around these parts.  The que will be around every nook and cranny for The Players!  I'll never forget the first time I had Southern Soul BBQ!  It was before my food blogging days but my BF and I were on a little staycation up the road on St. Simon's Island, where we found this place and literally inhaled the food!  Their BBQ is amazing! It's no wonder they were voted best BBQ in the state of Georgia!
 During The Players, you can find them cooling it, in the shade, on the patio on 10,  near the 18th green.  They'll be serving their pulled pork sandwiches and funnel fries!
My friend, Christin and I had a great time at the Taste of The Players.  It definitely got us excited about the actual event next week.  I'm pretty sure there will be plenty of other food options but as I mentioned earlier, this was just a "Taste" of The Players.  I am super excited because this will be my first time attending The Players festivities.  I've always shyed away blaming not wanting to be in the heat all day but when it's literally in my backyard, I have no excuses!  I'll have my sun hat, shades, and flip flops on deck for some golfing fun in the sun next week!  With that being said, stay tuned for the recap!  As always thanks for stopping by!
Happy Hump Day!
XOXO

 There is no secret that BBQ is popular in the south.  People love the stuff and this year, you can bet your good hard-earned money, that barbecue will be abundantly accessible at The Players!  4-Rivers Smokehouse got the party started with this amazing looking concoction!  This is the delicious 6-shooter which only has 6 ingredients including:  Baked cheese grits topped with pulled pork, coleslaw, pickles, jalepenos, and BBQ sauce.  It was very tasty and very filling!   If you plan to attend The Players, you can find the 6-shooter at Palm Valley Village, 9th green and at the Greenside Lounge, 18th green!
How much fun could one possibly have without a great cocktail to sip on?!?!?  Ok...so you can have plenty of fun with out an alcoholic beverage, it's just more fun with one! Anywho, the drink for this years Player's Championship is the Sawgrass Splash!  Made with Grey Goose, various citrus juices, and simple syrup, this drink is super light and refreshing.  So much so that you'll definitely need to pay attention to how many you consume because it's a "Creep Up On Ya" kind of drink!  
If wine is your thing, look for the William Hill Estate Winery.  They are the official wine of the PGA Tour and will be pouring up Chardonnay and Cab near the Wine and Dine on 9, Palm Valley Village, and The Wine Lounge.
 TACOS ON 12!!!
TacoLu will be in the place with their delicious shrimp soft tacos!  My favorite part about this taco is the spicy sauce it's topped with. 
  It's full of succulent shrimp and this spicy sauce and a scallion slaw...SO GOOD!
I'm glad they decided not to do "Fried" shrimp tacos.  It is a golf tournament with minimal shade and fried foods just don't mix well with the heat! 
Mojo Kitchen had some of my favorite dishes for the event!  Have you ever had their brisket burnt ends?!?!  Bruh!!! 
 They will also have their pulled pork sliders as well as their signature, Players only, smoked turkey wrap.  They mentioned that it's a hit for the Players because its cool, light, and more of a healthier option. They also have jerk wings on the menu that are the bomb! They were my favorite for the tasting!
As I mentioned earlier, BBQ is huge around these parts.  The que will be around every nook and cranny for The Players!  I'll never forget the first time I had Southern Soul BBQ!  It was before my food blogging days but my BF and I were on a little staycation up the road on St. Simon's Island, where we found this place and literally inhaled the food!  Their BBQ is amazing! It's no wonder they were voted best BBQ in the state of Georgia!
 During The Players, you can find them cooling it, in the shade, on the patio on 10,  near the 18th green.  They'll be serving their pulled pork sandwiches and funnel fries!
My friend, Christin and I had a great time at the Taste of The Players.  It definitely got us excited about the actual event next week.  I'm pretty sure there will be plenty of other food options but as I mentioned earlier, this was just a "Taste" of The Players.  I am super excited because this will be my first time attending The Players festivities.  I've always shyed away blaming not wanting to be in the heat all day but when it's literally in my backyard, I have no excuses!  I'll have my sun hat, shades, and flip flops on deck for some golfing fun in the sun next week!  With that being said, stay tuned for the recap!  As always thanks for stopping by!
Happy Hump Day!
XOXO
Hi Dolls,
There are two accessories I absolutely have to have in order to feel completely dressed and ready to walk out the door.  Can you guess what they are?  If you said earrings and a watch, you'd be correct!  I will actually turn the car around, if I have time, to add them to my look.  If I don't have a watch, a bracelet will do.  Earrings, on the other hand, are non-negotiable!  Studded earrings are great but a fabulous pair of statement earrings will kick any look up a notch or two!  They can make the most basic outfit, pop!  My go-to for statement earrings is none other than Conscious Statement!  This month I have the pleasure of being one of their brand ambassadors and I am so excited because their earrings are everything!
The May Conscious Statement Box, "Spring Fling", features this fabulous collection of earrings. During my unboxing, I was floored by how gorgeous they are in person.  A picture doesn't do these beauties any justice.  
There are a few things I really love about Conscious Statement accessories.  For starters, they are complete eye-catchers!  I've already worn each item from this month's statement box and have received multiple compliments for each pair!  Secondly and most importantly, is that although they are statement earrings, they don't weigh your earlobes down.  They are comfy enough to rock all day long! There's nothing worse than rocking a cute pair of earrings that you have to take off because they're ripping your ear piercings.  The pieces from Conscious Statement will allow you to be fab all day and night!  
I love all four pieces but I had to model these two for ya!  The "Moonlight Blue" are so classy!  My favorite color is teal blue so these are absolutely gorgeous to me!  I love the tassel accompanied by the jeweled top piece.    
These can be worn casually like you see here with a cute striped top and high waisted jeans, or with a dazzling cocktail dress to help make a "conscious statement", pun intended.
Considering the fact that I have worn the "Circus" earrings at least 5 times since I received this box, is a pretty good indication that they will be a go-to earring for me this Spring/Summer!  
They're so fun and colorful!  
They will definitely add a certain pizazz to any look!
