Urban Tide, Hyatt Orlando's Newest Restaurant

After attending a long day of inspiring Leadership action at the Junior League Fall Leadership in Orlando, we had the privilege of dining at Hyatt Orlando's newest venture Urban Tide. When we visited, in December we were told that they would soon be premiering their new restaurant and we would have to come back to check it out. Check it out we did! 

Our waiter Humberto was amazing, we explained to him that we had spaghetti brain and please bring forward the red wine in copious amounts. It was one of those evenings! I was really happy that I was at Urban Tide, because wine is something they do QUITE well. They had many selections by the glass, as well as an insane selection of bottle choices for us to choose from.

If you are conferencing in Orlando, its a short walk from the Orlando Convention Center and trust me, this is the way to end your day. I know that we are lucky, as we are conference nerds....especially when it comes to the Junior League...but conferences can be yawn fests. Having terrible conference food, we were HANGRY. Hungry, and a little angry at being hungry...but the food came out quick and each entree was better than the last. We are still talking about the au gratin potatoes!

My friend Amy and I dined on some of the new dishes that Urban Tide, happy to report that the staff and Chef Jared is still there, just shook it up a little from the old concept. Check out what we feasted on!





Asparagus and Sweet Corn Risotto | Mascarpone Cheese | Baby Tomatoes


Ceviche | Citrus Marinated Florida Sea Bass | Serrano Spiked Rock Shrimp 


Loch Duart Salmon | Sustainable Scotland Loch Caught


New England Sea Scallops | Juicy and Creamy Texture |


Flash-Fried Brussels Sprouts | Aged Balsamic 


Four Year Aged Cheddar Au Gratin Potatoes 

A little info about the new restaurant: From Florida’s bountiful coast, chic coastal cuisine and the freshest seafood is served at Urban Tide.

Seasonal favorites are celebrated, and elevated with bold flavors served in a stylish setting. With its dark wood furnishings and modern décor, Urban Tide offers diners a quiet, understated elegance highlighted by picturesque views of the Grotto Pool.

Chef Jared Gross brings Florida’s local seafood flavors to life with his modern twist on coastal favorites. Pair lunch or dinner with a classic or our current take on favorite handcrafted cocktails, or select from a distinctive collection of craft beers and fine wines.

Fashion and Knowledge for the Super Bowl for the Modern Girl

Assumedly, I am a girl. But, when it comes to sports I know why my uncle is so happy to have me around at all times when watching sports. I don't know everything but I sure know enough to be welcomed to any sports event with boys. In fact, during college season I am normally the only lady present.  I learned from listening and being a fan, but what if you need a crash course? 

Forget the chocolate-covered strawberry footballs – the best thing you can bring to a Super Bowl party is your arsenal of football knowledge. And since women represent over 45 percent of the NFL’s viewing audience, a new book from Vanessa-Franchesca "VF" Castro The Modern Girls’ Guide to the Gridiron needs to be in your arsenal. Her goal is to make it easier for women and girls to understand and relate to the sport they love. 

This book is great for:
  • Decoding Sports Talk: Includes a glossary of football terms every fan should know
  • Any football fan wanting to learn about the world’s “manliest” sport and its histories, traditions and scandals through the eyes of a female reporter
  • Connecting with a sports-minded partner: Learning more about the sport that your significant other loves (TMGGTTG has been called “the best marriage book ever”)
  • The perfect guide for mothers trying to learn more about the sport as they support their sons and fathers trying to relate their love of the sport to their daughters

The 49th Super Bowl will take place on February 1. To celebrate, VF is kicking off a giveaway and blog tour for The Modern Girls’ Guide to the Gridiron, a comprehensive guide to the game from a woman’s point of view, written by sports journalist Vanessa-Franchesca “VF” Castro. Formerly a makeup artist, Vanessa also puts together Game Day Looks – both beauty and fashion – on her blog.

Vanessa took some time our of her busy schedule to give you some ideas on what to wear for the big game!


Seattle Seahawks: For the first look, I styled a pair of skinny jeans (which are a closet staple), and a neon green embellished blouse by 3:1 Phillip Lim, followed by a pair of navy blue espadrilles from Michael Kors. The second look is a little more fashion forward, but it's still a classic style. I paired a gorgeous blue ribbed knit sweater by Yves Saint Laurent Vintage with a playful bright green skater skirt by Go Jane. And for accessories, I paired a sparkly bib necklace by BaubleBar, with grey booties from Steve Madden, and then a matching grey Debutante clutch by my favorite, Henri Bendel.  


New England Patriots: For the first look, I paired basic skinny jeans with a white tank top, and a red sweater by KAOS, with leopard booties by Ella Moss (similar), and a necklace by BaubleBar. For the second look, I styled the same skinny jeans with this white dolman sleeve sweater by Helmut Lang, with white booties (similar), and accessorized with a red Ralph Lauren scarf, and this "timeless" nautical-style watch by Daniel Wellington -- a perfect nod to New England style.  If you go with the basic colors of each franchise, your rooting interests will be easily differentiated, but the goal is to have fun -- both with your fashion choices, and during the game itself.

World Traveler Themed Bridal Shower

If you are just coming to the party (see what I did there) I am an event planner by simply trade. I LOVE throwing bashes!! I wish I could recreate my wedding every day! I laugh when people call me crafty, I am just a professional on Etsy and Pinterest and go from there. It is so much fun to plan something and have it come out of your head onto a party. When it was time to plan our favorite Megan's bridal shower, I was giddy. 

She suggested a World Traveler theme, to go along with her honeymoon in England, France and Italy. So for a couple of weeks, her bridesmaids and her mom and I went to work. Here are some of the things we came up with! Hope you like them! The most fun was going thrifting for different pieces of china to fancy it up a little!! 

That tea set? $7!!! 

chalboard stickers and white chalk pen are my new BFF





This is my soon to famous vodka recipe!
 






London
London is Always A Good Idea Sign
London and Paris cupcake/finger sandwich toppers
London confetti-I used a 2"punch

Italian
Recipe Cards-she was wonderful, I sent her my recipe and she formatted it!

This was my only non home run-and in my defense it was midnight (and I was on bottle three) but I printed out this map and wrapped it around the C and threw a coat of Mod Podge on it. Let the record reflect T's are so much easier!

Five Reasons to Run (at all)


Today I linked up with Eat, Pray, Run DC and You Signed Up for What, and Mar on the Run for this fun Friday Five

Happy Friday! This morning, there is absolutely no heat in the air. I think we are finally getting some fall like mornings. This makes for the PERFECT running weather. I've told you before that I am not a big fan of running in very hot or very cold temps so this is right up my alley. It will be nice to get back in the swing of things. This Friday Five is easy for me, because there are so many reasons to run. 

1. Amazing Attitude Adjuster-If you had a bad day, or you feel off-grab those running shoes and take a jaunt. I promise you will feel better. When you run, you force your body to exert excess energy and hormones. Bad stuff out, good stuff in.  You will find that after only a few minutes of running, your brain will start to secrete hormones that naturally improve your mood.

2. Time to figure the world out-I think a lot when I run, I hold conversations with myself and try to solve the world's problems one at a time. It keeps my mind off when I am ready to stop going another 1/2 mile. 



3. Drink that Pumpkin Latte, eat that cake. Not in excess, of course, but you burn a great amount of calories when you take your jaunt! So, the moment on the lips lifetime on your bum mentality can be relaxed just a wee bit if you get that heart rate up.

4. Achieve Internal Goals. I am insanely competitive with myself when I run, I am sure this is annoying but I post my graph on Instagram and Twitter when I run to keep myself accountable. I know if I am going slow, I am not going out like a fool-I need to pick it up. I am surprised how hard I am on myself. 

5. Music Music Ooh Ooh-NOTHING matches great jams than a good run. My running playlist makes me sad if I listen to it when I am not running. It is a nice mix of old school rap and new pop jams. And yes, sometimes I sing. Loudly. Actually, I always feel bad when I am running past those cute walking senior citizens and there is 

For once some of the facts mentioned isn't drivel from my head, I found them here.

Rosie's Cafe Is A Delight To The Ormond Mainstreet Landscape


Although I have been into Dunn's Attic and Auction House quite a few times, I have yet to have the opportunity to check out their darling little restaurant-Rosie's Cafe. What a treat! They have coffee and breakfast in the morning (featuring Biggby's Coffee!) and they have a great lunch on the weekdays. They serve beer and wine (and mimosas!) and has an old fashioned soda selection that would blow your mind right back to 1952. Oh, and in passing my husband mentions all you can eat pancakes for $5 on Saturdays...I think I will be quite the regular! 

The lunch was great, nothing too fancy but who needs fancy when you have homemade soups and sandwiches.  The grilled cheese, the tuna and the chicken salad were all delicious! It was a delight and I can't wait to go back! 

Dunn's Attic and Auction House which includes Rosie's Cafe is on the web and Facebook !


Really fun soda display 
Just a small selection of old fashioned sodas 

Tuna salad with bean salad

Ten Things I Couldn't Live Without in 2014!!

My beautiful friend Valerie asked me and a couple of her friends to put together a list of must haves for 2014. Products that we couldn't live without throughout this year. Hard to pick just ten, isn't it?!

1. Pacifica Island Vanilla Super Hydrating Hand Cream-This smells so good and it is so nourishing! Inspired by the unique magic of Tahitian vanilla, this sensual blend sets sweet and sultry vanilla absolute, with honey-jasmine notes and a touch of fruitiness, against a deep and beautiful base of tea. A Portion of proceeds from all Island Vanilla sales goes to the Ocean Futures Society, a non profit marine conservation organization. 100% vegan.

2. Smoothie King Dark Chocolate
I love Smoothie King, because it is great for the go...and for anyone who loves chocolate like I do-this Fall they released dark chocolate smoothies in three flavors! Made with 100% Ghirardelli® Cocoa, it really gives me a healthier option for weight watching. They taste rich, but are low in calories!
The three new smoothies in this product line include: Dark Chocolate Strawberry, Dark Chocolate Orange and Dark Chocolate Mint.

3. CoverAge by Jerome Alexander Concealer and Roller Ball  Sometimes I look in the mirror and realize that indeed the holidays are catching up with me. I love this new concealer and its rollerball friend, that makes for a quick two step process. The center core of the concealer contains a blend of skin care ingredients surrounded by a rich moisturizing formula that easily glides on. Plus, you get the Bonus Coverage RollerBall that contains the same unique blend of clinical level, anti-aging active ingredients as the under eye concealer but with no tint. Its a double whammy of coverage and I love it!

4. Spark by Advocare I decided earlier this month to sign up as an Advocare distributor...I have NO time to pursue this properly, but I wanted the opportunity to get some of my favorite products at a discount. One of the things that I love is their line of Spark products. There are many flavors to choose from and Steve and I love the fruit punch the best. In January, I will be taking the 24 challenge which includes a much needed gentle Herbal Cleanse. Let me know if you want to join me!

5. Shanti Aromatherapy Oils and Gift Sets. Do you know how lucky I am to have a friend who has her own line of essential oils? I don't know what I would do without her blends in my life. As I suffer from massive headaches and sometimes nerves galore, my two favorite are her Peppermint and Lavender. Nothing makes me feel better than these! Her blends also cure all, and I love her bath salts! These make great gifts, and ladies she is local!

6. Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain Introduced to me by the fabulous Nada, for less than $10, these are good to have in every color....and I do...I love how they stay on and are never sticky or crumbly.

7. David's Tea Everything Just really love David's Tea...its my favorite! For my birthday, I got the glass tumbler which makes a great cup of tea...you know how some tea infusers aren't fine enough, and the loose tea goes everywhere...not this one!

8. Rhonda Allison Pumpkin Cleanser  Disclosure, I am a terrible washer of the face..I know, I just never make time for anything elaborate, just quick in the shower...this stuff (and its oil companion) smells so delicious...I think I turned over a new leaf.

9. Josie Moran Argan Oil and Makeup Last year I sat across my friend Julie and was like WHAT are you doing to your skin? She turned me on to Josie's color match foundation, which is awesome and the argan oil...which makes your skin GLOW.

10. Bliss Lemon and Sage Line-this just smells so so so so so good. Its a body wash and bubble bath! I can see a theme here, all good smelling stuff!

Happy Holidays!

Kid Rock to Perform at the Daytona 500

I am sorry because I am a professional, I can not get up on my chair and scream KID CUSSWORD CUSSWORD ROCKKKKKKKKKK IS CUSSWORD COMING TO THE DAYTONA 500. 

Ok...the thing is, you guys is that I have known Kid Rock since he was a little baby band that played for me in Daytona in 1998. He has a memory like an elephant, when I saw him a couple of years later and was bigger than all that is BIG...he remembered me with detail. That's impressive, being that I was around and a pertinent part for the rise of many a band in the 90's and once they hit the big time they forgot their meager roots quite quickly...I am looking at you...Rob Thomas

Anyways, my bestie Ally-CRRR loves Kid Rock and as much as she is a goddess of all of rock and roll....she used to turn to cement upon his presence. Very very funny to watch. 

What is also kind of funny, after seeing him thirty five times in the 2000's, the last time I saw him play was at the Homestead Race in 2012. Time flies when you are having fun, darlings. Now if you must excuse me, I have a date with Spotify for some Devil without a Cause singing...how do I know every single word after this time, when I couldn't tell you what I wore yesterday? 

Homestead 2012
  Kid Rock to Headline the DAYTONA 500 Budweiser Pre-Race Show

Multi-platinum award-winning, American rock star Kid Rock will perform the DAYTONA 500 Budweiser Pre-Race Show, the prelude to the 57th annual “Great American Race” on Sunday, Feb. 22 (1 p.m. – FOX, FOX Deportes, MRN Radio and SiriusXM Radio.)

Kid Rock will perform several of his hits, including his brand new single “First Kiss,” on pit road of the “World Center of Racing” prior to the start of the DAYTONA 500, the prestigious season-opening event of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. All race fans that purchase a Pre-Race/Sprint FANZONE access pass for the DAYTONA 500 can enjoy Kid Rock’s DAYTONA 500 Budweiser Pre-Race Show up close, along with driver introductions.

“We’re thrilled to have Kid Rock entertain the thousands of race fans in attendance and the millions more watching on FOX,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “Kid Rock is an avid NASCAR fan and will provide race fans with a spectacular performance leading up to the start of the much anticipated DAYTONA 500.

Following his performance, Kid Rock will release his latest studio album First Kiss on Tuesday, Feb. 24.  Fans can pre-order the album now at participating retailers and at KidRock.com.  Kid Rock, whose musical style ranges from hip hop and rock to heavy metal and country, has sold more than 26 million albums worldwide.

Kid Rock joins a long list of past performers of the DAYTONA 500 Budweiser Pre-Race Show including Luke Bryan, Zac Brown Band, Lenny Kravitz, Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Bon Jovi.

In addition to his concert, a special ticket package designed around Kid Rock has been created that includes a DAYTONA 500 grandstand ticket, Pre-Race/Sprint FANZONE access and VIP area access to Kid Rock’s performance.  Packages start at $169. Fans who have already purchased DAYTONA 500 tickets can add Pre-Race/Sprint FANZONE access along with VIP area access for just $104.

Shop Local for Holiday Cocktails with Bungalow 23 Mixers

As much as I love my wine, when I have to start looking to setting down and stop carbing like a crazy person, I turn to my other sister from another mista-vodka! Yeah! But what to mix with vodka? So many options, but I recently was introduced by Megan and the Hyatt Regency Orlando something that is going on my shelf, ASAP. Bonus, its locally owned! 

Rick Ferrone and Chris Henderson, two entrepreneurs out of Orlando, recently launched a line of craft cocktail mixers called Bungalow 23, "The cocktail mixer hand crafted for premium spirits". These mixers make it simple to enjoy a hand crafted cocktail at home. What sets these mixers apart from all the others is the word fresh. No concentrates and nothing artificial found here. Bungalow 23 is made from fresh fruit purees, real fruit juices, and homemade extracts using fresh cut herbs.

Bungalow 23 currently has three flavors on the market; Prickly Pear Margarita, Blueberry Lemon Drop and the holy grail- Pear Ginger Martini.

Hyatt Regency Orlando now featured Bungalow 23 mixers and has a great craft cocktail menu to pear with them...get it? 


We tried two delicious concoctions with Ginger Pear Martini and Lemon Sapphire (we cheated and swapped out vodka...no one wants to see us on gin, trust us!)



You can find Bungalow 23: Online | Facebook | Instagram | In stores
