PhotobucketHi Dolls!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful week!  Though I'm excited to be back at school, let's just say TGIF for me! LOL!  It was a loooooong first week back but I think this will be a great year!

Here is one of my favorite dresses.  Just wanted to show you all!  I am so happy to have such wonderful followers!  Thank you all for brightening up my days with your wonderful comments!  I truly appreciate them all.


PhotobucketEarlier this week I finally made it out to this AWESOME little restaurant my co-worker has been raving about!  It's called TacoLu.
TacoLu is a small, funky, and colorful little restaurant located near the beaches.  The decor included dia de los muertos art.  This stands for Day of the Dead and is a mexican holiday for gathering with friends and family to remember loves ones who have passed away.

I love all of the bright colors!

Great place to meet up with friends!
Besides the fact that the tacos are pretty tasty, they are cheap!!!  I ordered the Carne Asada taco and the Baja Fish taco.  The Carne Asada taco was so flavorful with juicy pieces of flank steak, cheese, onions, and cilantro. 
The only complaint I had about this taco is that I didn't have more of it!!!  I know better for next time to order more than one of these bad boys!

I wasn't very pleased at all with the Baja Fish taco.....

The batter wasn't very appetizing to me and it had a hint of cinnamon or nutmeg that I didn't care for.

However, the homemade chips and salsa were a definite hit for!  Overall this place gets an A from me.  I will be back for another visit.  Next time, Carne Asada tacos all around!

Hey Lovelies! 


Im not sure if I've ever mentioned this before but one of the many hats I wear is one of an educator and yesterday was the first day back at school!!!! I had a long and incredibly entertaining summer and I suppose I'm excited to be back in the grind of things!  Anywho, here is my back to work outfit:
  • Pink Blazer: Forever 21
  • Linen Trousers: Papaya (trust me they were nicely ironed that morning)
  • Turquoise Necklace:  Steinmart
  • Ring:  Gift from My Mommy
Heels:  Minx
There's nothing like a nice cold treat after a long hard day...or morning...I visited this place after a work out some days ago LOL!!!

It's a new dessert parlor in Tinseltown that specializes in Gelato, an Italian style ice cream that's creamy and apparently less fattening than ice cream!!!
The parlor is simply chic with a few contemporary touches
They have several options to choose from and serve other desserts including shakes and  brownies!

I enjoyed my large scoop of strawberry cheesecake gelato!  I had real pieces of strawberry and cheesecake and I didn't feel a bit of guilt after indulging in it! 
Have a wonderful week!!!

Hey lovelies!

I apologize for my absence this week.  I had an extremely hectic week at work.  But anywho....my wonderful man surprised me this weekend with an in town get-away!  He got us a hotel room with a magnificent view of the beach!!!  I was able to view two weddings from our room balcony!  This one was my fav!
Photobucket
The decor was simple and the colors were bright pink and orange!
Photobucket
We went swimming at the hotel pool and at the beach! Something I haven't done in a while!  It was soooo much fun! Had an amazing time with my sweetie!!! Later on in the evening we went to dinner.  Here is what I was wearing.

Earrings: Bealls Outlet

Dress: En Focus Studio via Ross

Heels:  D Shoes 

Ring:  Gift from a friend

Bracelets:  Body Central

After checking out the night scene at the beach for a little while, we went to Daruma Japanese Steakhouse for dinner.  It's probably one of the best in town.
We got there kind of late so we couldn't get a seat where the chef puts on a show while preparing your food right in front of you...bummer. The ambiance was still very nice, service is great, and the amount of food you're given is well worth the $$$.
Love the kimono!!!
The fountain was really pretty!
The food was delicious but the picture of the soup is really the only one that wasn't blurry... 
 and the picture of the steak, chicken, and shrimp...YUMMMMM... UMMM!!! I had some shrimp sauce on the side and if you know about Hibachi, shrimp sauce is a MUST!!!

If you live in Florida, I'm sure you already know that this weekend is TAX FREE on clothes, some accessories, and school supplies!  With that being said, I may just have to get out early and pick up a few things! ;)  I hope everyone have a FABULOUS weekend!!!

Hi Dolls,


  I have been hearing so many great things about     The French Pantry, a bakery/cozy restaurant known for  providing bread to several local restaurants and fabulous food for its patrons. Unfortunately they are only open from 11am-2pm Monday through Friday and if you're going to go you'd better get there early to avoid waiting in a never-ending line.  This was my last Monday off for a little while so I thought today would be a perfect day to give it a go! 
Just wanted to show you the line again! Crazy I know, and it's like this from 11-2 non-stop!                     
Good Eats!!!
 For starters we were given  fresh, hot, crusty, chewy french bread and olive oil infused with balsamic vinegar and tasty herbs!
Let me just tell you this is hands down, the BEST Bruschetta I have ever eaten in my life!!!  It was made with their yummy crusty bread, goat cheese, succulent shrimp, and artichokes on top of a bed of fresh greens and tomatoes!

 The French Dip Sandwich was made with tender slices of well-seasoned beef and gooey mozarella cheese!  The Au Jus was perfectly savory....made you wanna dip the entire sandwich to the bottom!  LOL!
The Chicken Panini looked amazing!  It has chicken, mozarella, tomatoes, greens, and proscuitto!  YUMM!!!
And last but not least the assortment of desserts range from cookies, to eclairs, to carrot cake, and much more.  We shared on slice of the "Wedding Cake" which was a decadent white cake with cream cheese frosting infused with fresh strawberries on a strawberry puree!  It was very good!!!
The French Pantry gets 2 thumbs up from me!!!  Everything I tasted was phenomenal and the prices were more than reasonable!!!  Hope everyone has a FABULOUS week!!!
XOXO

Hi Everyone,

I pray that everyone had a wonderful weekend!  My weekend was great!  It started off with my sweetie taking me to dinner at the fabulous Ruth's Chris.  The service and food there is pretty amazing.  Sorry I don't have any pics of the wonderful food but I was too wrapped up in the lovely evening I was having to remember.  When I got home, my BF told me he'd take some of me so all of my makeup's gone and the first picture is blurry...bless his heart! lol! :)

My weekend ended, ofcourse with an AWESOME word at church!
The word came from Ephesians 4:22-32.  The scriptures that stuck with me the most were verses 31-32, "Let all bitterness, and wrath and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice. And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." Our pastor spoke about bitterness and anger and how besides the obvious, these two negative emotions can adversely affect your health and well-being.  It's funny how people are quick to say "Oh I'll forgive you, but I won't forget"  Well then did you really forgive that person?  We have to forgive people and LET IT GO! 

Anywho, the word is always awesome! Here is what I was wearing today:

One of my really good friends is going to be moving to LONDON soon to attend graduate school!!!  Im so excited for them and I definitely have to go visit!  I hear the shopping and food there is AMAZING!!!  Ofcourse, I couldn't let my friend leave before going out to dinner one more time!  We went to a modern American spot called "Town".  They are well known for using local farm products for the majority of their ingredients!

It's located in Avondale which is near 5 points where most of our city's boutiques are. 

The decor is very contemporary and the ambiance is very serene. 
You can watch and smell your food being cooked from your table which adds to your anticipation to grubb!!!

And the food......pretttttyy goood!

Complimentary Herb Sour Dough Bread with a Cranberry Butter
Appetizer:  Black Truffle Tater Tots in Carmelized Onion Fondue and White Truffle Oil...great flavor!
 (Best Tater Tots I've ever eaten)

I had the shrimp and grits which was topped with fried green onions and smoked tasso... SO YUMMY!

My friend had the fried oysters and okra over a corn and butterbean relish and black pepper aioli.  It was also quite tasty.

Instead of dessert we both went with a nice pot of Peppermint Japanese Green Tea! ( I love tea :))

That's all for now beauties!  I hope everyone has a BLAST this weekend!
