PART 2- Outlet Shopping in the UK!


Welcome back to #FaLaLaFriday, Sunny friends! Because my outlet shopping day trip from London to Portsmouth was such a huge event, today I’m sharing even more deals with you.

Our Deck Down Under, a secret Daytona Beach hot spot


Did you know that Daytona Beach has some secret locations that only locals know? They’re not as invisible as London’s ‘Platform 9 3/4′ but restaurants like Our Deck Down Under register high on the locals only list.

Racing’s North Turn- Guess Who’s Back!

North-Turn-Restaurant-Beach-Bar-Florida (2)

When I saw the Facebook update for Racing’s North Turn on a Sunday evening in July, my heart stopped. It indicated a huge fire had erupted overnight in the restaurant’s kitchen. They were grateful no one was hurt but shattered that the famous beach bar in Ponce Inlet, Florida had experienced substantial damage and would be closed. The loss of this establishment wouldn’t be a little drag. The end of Racing’s North Turn would be Continue Reading »
