Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival 2015: Garden Rocks Concert Series Line-Up

One of my favorite events at Disney’s Epcot is the annual International Flower & Garden Show. I just love walking among all of those creatively constructed topiaries, flower gardens, and butterfly displays while enjoying the warm (okay, “hot”) Florida sun. This year’s event is March 4 through May 17, 2015 and will feature a host […]

Gaylord Hotels holds Christmas 2014 ICE! Extravaganza

There’s not much that will get this beach girl to willingly walk into a room full of ice with temperatures in the single digits. The one thing that will is when the location is a Gaylord hotel and the event is ICE! Plus, it gives me the chance to actually wear the cute, fur-trimmed boots […]

Spend a Week in Paradise with Zac Brown (sort of)

When I bought my new vehicle, I was given a free six-month subscription to Sirius XM. Well, those folks sure know what they’re doing because I’m currently hooked on Radio Margaritaville.

Discover Bodhi by the Beach at the 2014 Bermuda Yoga Festival

Practicing planks and up dogs with views of sapphire-soaked water and coral reefs sounds like a dream come true to this island girl. The soft pink sand of Bermuda is better than any yoga mat I’ve ever used. It seems that the Bermuda Department of Tourism thinks like me. Kind of a scary thought for them, […]

The tropical lifestyle brand, Balmy Palms, was looking for a theme song to represent their brand. They sent out a search for the perfect song to convey their philosophy of a laid-back lifestyle. “No Worries, No […]

Newly appointed Grand Ole Opry member and front man of Hootie and the Blowfish, Darius Rucker performed to a sold out crowd at Richmond’s Innsbrook After Hours concert series. The Thursday, September 6 performance at the Snagajob Pavilion just snagged its place at the top of my list of best concerts ever. Brinn Black, a […]
